Subject RE: [Lucene.Net] [VOTE] Fork Sharpen
Date Sat, 05 Mar 2011 08:16:43 GMT
If we were just doing small discrete patches it would be fine to give them a
try but I think we are looking at taking the project in a new direction. Our
work will be experimental for a while so its easier to play around in a
fresh repository than convince them to commit something that partially
works.

Also looking at their forum, the last user submitted patch took a few weeks
to get committed and when the user uploaded an additional change it seems
that was ignored.

Wouldn't it be better to make such a decision only after it has shown that
working with db4o doesn't work well?
