Subject Re: [Lucene.Net] twitter account and chat room
Date Fri, 02 Dec 2011 23:08:06 GMT
Well... I just opened the chat room. Feel free to us or not to use.
You know I totally against the super-bureaucratic procedures of the ASF, so I'm not going
to comment on the ML or did not happen approach.
Reality is that if I had to go back and forth with email, probably we wouldn't have had the
nuget plgs out today, but sometime next week, and that for exchanging some quick opinions
a real time communication is much more effective.
But, again... It costs nothing, so if nobody uses it, well... C'est domage...
