Subject Should we move shale-petstore somewhere else? Was --> Re: Wikipedia: More Licensing Questions
Date Thu, 03 Aug 2006 18:25:45 GMT
I'm considering an option that Craig mentioned earlier - moving this
to google's new open source area.  While I understand the reasons for
the tight restrictions that ASF has, it makes it difficult to host a
fully functional sample app using several different technologies.

On google (and presumably dev.java.net), we can also distribute
binaries wither hibernate, etc.  That will allow more people to use
the app.  No matter how easy you make it, some people are just putoff
by compiling their own source.  I admit, sometimes I fall into this
category (if my interest is only casual.)

If we do move it, I'd still like some loose integration between shale
and this project.  This would include links to the shale-petstore from
the shale site and referring people on the user list to the
shale-petstore when it serves as an appropriate example.

Thoughts?
