Subject RE: Shall we go JDK 1.5 in 1.1 branch
Date Fri, 10 Mar 2006 06:10:37 GMT
I agree on the wacked view.

I'm sitting here enjoying some Asahi, and it's getting
more and more out of focus by the minute.

What I'm trying to zoom in on though is the population
of developers needing to embed the Apache DS.

I think one could make the following assumptions:
- The population of developers needing to embed
ApacheDS are large organizations like IBM, BEA, etc.

- The developers that are doing the embedding are very
sharp...sort of like the people who made ApacheDS...ok
maybe not that sharp...

- Given the first two assumptions, the population
could easily get around any 1.5 constraints, and then
go have some Asahi!

Oh Oh - Glass is almost empty.  Gotta go get refilled.
