Subject Re: [VOTE] [PROPOSAL] Validation incubator for JSR-303 Bean Validation
Date Wed, 24 Feb 2010 13:55:07 GMT
Sorry, didn't read the proposal very closely.  The idea was that it
would be brought into Commons Validator and become the 2.x codebase.
I like that idea and I would think it would be wise to go through the
incubator to make sure the codebase is donated "cleanly" to the ASF.
My point was mainly about the name.  If it takes over the Commons
Validator project, then we already have a name.  Issue closed.  Right?

scan the logs for details. The subject was "[PROPOSAL] Validation incubator for JSR-303 Bean
Validation". I think the following sums up where we landed on that issue (at least it pretty
well sums up where I landed on the issue):
