Subject Re: Anyone ready for 5.0.14?

Its a problem for me.  If Tapestry were a project at Formos, not at
Apache, I would have a team, we would agree on dates and deliverables,
etc.  People would be responsible for what they are assigned, or take

What pains me is that many people have ideas about what needs to be
done, sometimes very vocal ideas, but that's as far as it goes.

The structure of the code (components and IoC services) should make it
reasonable for people to "set up shop" in a specific area, as you
describe.  It just isn't happening.

For every trivial bug that I end up fixing, it's one less critical bug
I can take on.  And when, like now, I'm client focused (preparing for
several days of training), not much is going to happen.
