Subject Re: [release] Last release of Shale?
Date Thu, 06 Dec 2007 16:16:28 GMT
myfaces is already pretty large,
so if you feel, that Shale should stay a TLP, I have no problems with that.

I just came back to this idea, b/c was discussed in the past, nothing happened,
and Shale is pretty ... quite, these days.

there are others that have taken advantage of other parts of shale.
