Subject Re: New Incubator Proposal: Null - A cloud-aware Web 3.0 Container
Date Wed, 01 Apr 2009 06:47:29 GMT
I have some doubts at a couple of things, based on my presentation at
last ApacheCon:

 - Naming: null is a very popular name. Since wikipedia has the top
level google hit already, I suggest NullPointerException which has a
top position held by Sun, and which is much easier to be obtained
after the IBM takeover.

 - Perfect code: since null is such a concise language, the project is
already finished and will most likely fail to attract a large
developer community

There are also some omissions in the proposal, here are my proposed changes:

svn location: /dev/null
site location: /dev/null
graduation position: /dev/null

But given my doubts, I still think this non-podling is on the
fasttrack to graduation. I suspect it to graduate at the end of the
day. Which is a good thing, since then the podling doesn't have to
