Subject RE: XMLBeans incubation status file
Date Thu, 31 Jul 2003 19:22:36 GMT


My name is Eric Vasilik, and I'm one of the original developers of XmlBeans within BEA.  I
am primarily responsible for the architecture and implementation of the XML store and XmlCursor.

I will be moving the XmlBeans source code into the Apache CVS.  In order to ensure a smooth
transition of XmlBeans from the BEA version control and build system to Apache, I will be
deling with these issues:

1) add ASF copyright to all files
2) move all packages to org.apache.xmlbeans (also being able to build in an alternate package
for backward compatibility)
3) eliminate all non ASL code and library dependencies (Piccolo)

and any others which may crop up.  My goal is to drop XmlBeans into Apache CVS and simultaneously
use the Apache build within BEA's product line to avoid any duplication of the code base.

With luck I expect to check in sometime late next week.

- Eric
