Subject Re: URL-location for latest beanshell provider source code ?
Date Tue, 25 Mar 2014 15:29:06 GMT

Concerning beanshell itself, we did everything we were supposed to do to 
get Beanshell into the ASF. The code was relicensed and the major 
IP-clearance process was done. The author also submitted a SGA to the 
ASF secretary. You can check out the code in apache-extras:

As I see it, what stalled the process were basic doubts about the value 
of the incubation process itself. In other words, we already did most of 
what was meant to be done in incubation (the IP-clearance and the SGA) 
so if any Apache Project needs the code they can consume it directly.

After the vote (which is apparently still open?), most of us that were 
involved, have been too busy on other things.

I would have thought that the Beanshell code was more valuable to the 
rest of the ASF than to Apache OpenOffice, where the extension is 
optional. Beyond AOO, what I would have really liked is to see the 
Apache Commons BSF update their support for Beanshell and take it in.

best regards,
