So, What Do You Think of java.net Now? Poll Ends Monday
A few months ago, java.net underwent some pretty major changes: we migrated to a new project infrastructure (Kenai), and we switched to a modernized Web look and feel. The Kenai infrastructure brought many benefits to java.net projects, including the Subversion and Git version control systems, and JIRA issue and project tracking. And, as I wrote about in my last blog post, Sonatype's Nexus Maven service is also now available for java.net projects.
Given a fairly small team, I think we've come a long way in a relatively short time. But, that's just my opinion. What do you think? Our current poll asks that specific question:
We're in the final days of the poll (it will close on Monday), so get your vote in now. Also, feel free to post a comment expressing your view in greater detail.
