Subject Re: Apache MUSE (was: [VOTE] Retire Muse and WSIF to the Attic on muse-dev)
Date Sun, 15 Aug 2010 16:26:33 GMT
I'd consider this to be a boundary case.

On one hand, it is of course in the interest of anyone to have the
project alive, rather than retired. OTOH, while Jonas has contributed
some bug reports (4), including patches and has voiced on the MUSE
mailing lists from time to time (4 times, exluding this mail), that's
not sufficient for me to say "no problem, just make him a committer"
without hesitation.

And, of course, he still has the option to continue on SourceForge or
something like that.

specification.  We would be willing to donate this code to the foundation (after code cleanup
and thorough testing).
