Subject [Proposal] Ant as a top-level project
Date Thu, 24 Oct 2002 14:49:16 GMT
Dear Ant developers,

    I'm mailing you following the discussion we are having on list ( about reorganizing 
the Apache project structure.

Some of us think that a more "flat" project structure will benefit 
Apache, by making projects interact more directly with the Apache "core" 
instead of going through the indirection of Jakarta.

This could help reduce the sub-sub-sub-project syndrome that Jakarta 
projects tend to have.

Some projects have already shown interest in making a proposal to the 
board for becoming top-level, with their own PMC. Since the next meeting 
will be at the ApacheCon, they are getting it ready to submit it at 
least a week before that event.

Ant is a very famous project, with a big user and developer base.
As you may know Krysalis Centipede uses Ant 
heavily, and could be interested joining the Apache Ant project as a 
I'm quite sure that many Ant-based tool would like to.

So, the question is, what do you think about making

Thank you.
