Subject Re: [ANNOUNCE] What to Do if Your Code Has Few, If Any Tests?
Date Sat, 22 Apr 2006 14:08:11 GMT
Seems as if more and more of these business posts keep getting added by
Ted.  Is Struts now going to become the place where Craig and Ted do
business?  I note that Ted has announced that this sort of mentoring on
Struts is going to be his source of income when his present day job ends.
Is this open source with committer ads (Ted) and special privileges
(Craig)?  I mention this only because Ted has been increasing the frequency
with which this drum is being beat.
