Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache Brooklyn 0.7.0-incubating [rc1]
Date Wed, 22 Jul 2015 15:21:18 GMT
Hi Cedric,

It's dug down somewhere in my memories, I bet somebody like Marvin or 
Roman or Ted could quickly pull out their magic hats the authoritative 
link. There ore other projects that release in non-asf packages (e.g. 
geronimo specs in javax.*) for very good reasons. I don't know what and 
how applies to your concrete Groovy situation. While there are 
exceptions, my understanding is that it's a pretty strong requirement.

The rationale has something to do, iirc, with the fact that we cannot 
release code in packages for which we don't own the domain and would 
create confusion and possibly conflicts for downstream users. If I am 
wrong, hopefully somebody will correct me.
