Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Freemarker Incubation proposal
Date Thu, 21 May 2015 18:44:39 GMT
The guys who you see on or GitHub with commit rights has moved
on to do different things, except me and one other guy who is mostly a
Web designer professionally. That's one of the reasons why I though
that I give it a shot, and see if being an ASF project makes the
project more visible/appealing for contributors. I don't know what the
experience with that is. Sometimes we get a patch from someone BTW,
but that doesn't make the sender a committer of course. Finding people
who will work on Freemarker for a longer time seems to be a tricky
business, despite that the user base is big. Well, MVC template
engines is not the hot topic nowadays, but they are still heavily

Anyway, I will ping some earlier contributors then.

Regarding the other question, yes, there are ASF projects who build on
FreeMarker, like OFBiz for example. (And then of course Struts
supports it next to JSP and Velocity.)
