Subject Re: Champion needed for new workflow project proposal
Date Mon, 02 Mar 2009 15:00:59 GMT


ObjectWeb allows Apache licensed projects but one of our reasons is also to
be recognized as Apache project, which will of course provide us with much
more visibility than beeing ObjectWeb project :-) plus to get more
developers, ideas, community, etc....

I didn't provide a link for the proposal yet since I understood that first I
need a champion to agree on a proposal etc... 

Moving from LGPL to Apache shouldn't be so hard since for the beginning we
only want to move the core of the engine to Apache ...
