Subject Pom descriptions and branding
Date Thu, 09 Jun 2011 14:01:35 GMT
I was just looking through the poms for MINA.

It looks as though only the parent POM  and mina-integration-xbean
have a description.

It would be helpful to have descriptions in the other modules too.

Also, the parent description is:

Apache MINA is a network application framework which helps users
develop high performance and highly scalable network applications
easily.  It provides an abstract event-driven asynchronous API over
various transports such as TCP/IP and UDP/IP via Java NIO.

>From the branding point of view, Apache MINA should not be used as a
noun, only as a qualifier to a noun, so it cannot be the subject of a

Maybe it could be reworded something like:

Apache MINA software implements a network ...

It's important that the first (or only) mention of MINA clearly uses
the word as a qualifier, not a noun.

I don't think this is blocking on the release, but it should be fixed
before the next one ideally.
