Subject Re: request to accept new project: wsrp4j:K@N@!:
Date Sat, 02 Aug 2003 21:27:20 GMT
Status update:
- Started the VOTE on WS-PMC. Will report back the results.
- There's Portlet API jar (named pluto.jar) that is required by both Charon and Jetspeed-2.
Jetspeed-2 folks are working on it

- Is availability of pluto.jar file a Show Stopper for Charon? 
- If it is a show-stopper, how come it is ok for jetspeed-2 to have this dependency?
- What else is required before Charon can be accepted for incubation?
