Subject Re: Preliminary NetBeans cost findings
Date Mon, 26 Sep 2016 15:21:27 GMT
We're actively discussing with various organizations about the future home
of We'd certainly not want to go into the future
without our Plugin Portal and plugins, there's no point in pointing out to
the NetBeans community the importance of its plugins. :-) I am comfortable
that we'll find a home for them in one organization or another. We have no
intention nor any expectation that Apache will be the future home for, in the same way as Maven's plugins etc are also not
hosted on Apache.

Hope the above helps,
