Subject Re: [DISCUSS] New component - Type Safe Events
Date Thu, 10 Sep 2020 16:12:36 GMT
Hi again everyone.

This discussion has now been open for over 72 hours. Thank you all for the feedback. It seems
as though the consensus is that a reference implementation hosted at Apache would be a positive
asset, and that Aries is a good place for this (although as pointed out, Felix would also
make sense).

I’m therefore going to start the process of creating the repository and starting the development
effort. I’ll keep you posted on my progress.

All the best,
