Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Towards Karaf 3.0.0
Date Mon, 11 Jul 2011 13:46:57 GMT
@RC again; I'm definitely with Achim here (except that you really like
to do the work Jamie :)) that we may ping the smx/geronimo communities
to also provide snapshots of their products based on karaf_RC. that
way the work will really pay off since we'll get tons of more user
feedback (I assume) than simply do this for karaf alone (there are
ways less projects depending on karaf directly I assume; comparing the
download volume of SMX to karaf :))

Kind regards,
Andreas
