Subject [PROPOSAL] UIMA (Unstructured Information Management Architecture) Framework
Date Sat, 09 Sep 2006 12:00:57 GMT
Hello everyone,

I'm restarting this thread on the Unstructured Information Management 
Architecture implementation (UIMA) framework, in the hopes of moving 
this along better; this time it also has the prefix [PROPOSAL] which I 
had left out due to over-excitement at doing my first posting to this 
list :-) . 

Please consider this proposal  (on the incubator wiki because it is 
quite long: ), and help us 
move it along toward getting it voted on by the Incubator PMC.

Two important clarifying emails (as well as the whole previous thread) 
can be found here:
(These are also hyperlinks in the wiki to these at the end of the first 
small section.)
