Subject [jira] Commented: (JAMES-333) Build Broken in HEAD revision

     [ http://nagoya.apache.org/jira/browse/JAMES-333?page=comments#action_55168 ]
Brill Pappin commented on JAMES-333:

By the way: The Apache CVS repository does not list a "v2 branch" at all, not a branch or
a tagged revision.

If there is another branch somewhere, please let me know where it is, and close this ticket,
as it no longer applies.

> The developers of James have done a wonderful job with the concept of James up to this
point although have been a little slow in the development process. 
> However, I could not wait for the fixes to come in and so decided to tackle a few of
the more critical problems myself... in trying to fix the large number of bugs in James I've
found, and trying to test the IMAP implementation, I checked out the HEAD revision and attempted
to build. Once I'd solved the dependency mess, I found that the code was actually broken in
relation to the com.apache.james.util.connection.* classes and their super classes.
> I also found very little or no unit tests, so I could not determine what part of the
code exactly was broken (or what it should do).
> The code base is pretty much a mess as far as I can tell but I can suggest a few things
that would help keep this project on track: Use Agile, TDD processes in your development.
Use Maven for a build system.
> I am willing to port the project to a Maven build if requested to do so.
> I would also like to see some unit test for this code.
> Yes, this ticket is pretty harsh, but as experienced developers, I expect better.
