Subject Re: Including snapshot dependencies from other ASF projects
Date Fri, 17 Nov 2006 11:34:18 GMT
The question is more general than working with another ASF project.
The Mina people are great and we are working with them.

Your points are absolutely valid for ASF projects and for other open
source work that has similar release process that we could work

The concern the Qpid project was having is what happens when you are
doing everything that you can but you need to release a version of
your software but cannot get one of your dependencies to release a new

Do you wait for them to release?
