Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (TAPESTRY-2183) Support Java Portlet Specification V2 - JSR-286

I think you've misunderstood my beef.

You could just as easily replace the word "wicket" with "elves" and I
would be no less annoyed by the implication that this feature - which
is a very large feature that no current Tapestry developer is likely
to use anytime soon - is more important because of the fact that elves
are working on it.

Combine this annoyance with repeating the exact same reasoning in blog
comments / user forums / developer lists and jira issues makes it all
the more annoying.
