Subject [ApacheCon] Quick report
Date Wed, 11 Apr 2001 21:04:33 GMT
Now that I'm finally back in my own timezone and could catch up with all
outstanding tasks, here's a small report of ApacheCon Jetspeed-related

As in London, it's been a great pleasure to finally meet some of the
of these mailing-lists, and I'm certainly looking forward meeting new
in Dublin for next ApacheCon. For those of you that could not make it to 
the conference, I'll put a pictures I've taken their on a website this

About Jetspeed proper, we mainly discussed on the different activities
on right now (new layout, portlet API, etc...) on worked on a revised
schedule based on the current development status. 

Our conclusions can be summarized like this:

- we feel that it's necessary to quickly produce a new alpha release of
  in order to include all the fixes that went into the codebase since
  Our current tentative date for this schedule is 30 April. This release
  mainly be a maintenance/bug-fix release without any major new feature
  from what is currently available in CVS.
  I'll detail the release plan for alpha 2 in a separate mail on the

- We currently anticipate that the major new components like the new
  engine and portlet API will land in the main CVS head somewhere in
  If everything goes extremely well, it may be possible to release a new
  integrating the changes before JavaOne, but it's quite unlikely. The
  target date for the first public release of the new components is
currently end
  of June.

- I've been asked by several people (at the Con or by mail) where it's
  possible to contribute to the project while the very heart of Jetspeed
is being
  rewritten. I'll post on both lists this week a quick run-down of who's
  on what (at least as far as I know) and what other tasks may be
carried out
  by new voluntary people.

For those of you that asked about my presentation slides, I'll convert
them to
HTML and post the results on a web site, but I fear the slides are a
little too
terse without the accompanying explanations and demos.
