One thing I want to discuss is ow we can organise the issues on jira I still have had no response from InspiSpring.

Inspired by my work with Spring Modules (or difficulties with), and as explained in this post on the Spring Modules forum, I am now announcing the Spring Modules Fork! An effort to bring back to life some very useful software!
I have emailed various people and even emailed suggesting an extensions project as described on the Spring site but haven’t had any responses.
As Spring Modules has been officially declared dead  and i’m not getting nay replies to my mails I would like to fork the project into git-hub and get some vital patches applied – particularly on my area of interest – the cache module. I also would like to migrate the whole project to maven.
I’m posting here to get any thoughts or suggestions regarding this – hopefully a response from someone at Spring – particularly Colin Yates.
Let’s get this useful software moving again!
Ok guys – the project is up on git-hub!
To download an anonymous repository run git clone git://github.com/astubbs/spring-modules.git or sign up with git-hub and get your personal account!
Let the patching begin!
From the Wiki page:
This is a resurrection of the extremely valuable and abandoned Spring-Modules project.
The plan is to fully embrace Maven as the build tool and eventually throw out all the old build code.
At this point, all the old jar libraries and generated documentation have been pruned from the repository history.
This pruning has reduced the size of the repository from 95m to 7m. Nice.
The idea will be to slowly add one by one, as the are compile ready, to the parent module section, so they can be included.
Msg/email me on email@example.com to discuss!
I will try and get a development mailing list setup asap, but for now, email me on firstname.lastname@example.org with the [subject spring-module-fork] and I’ll start building a manual list. (If anyone knows a free mail list setup, let me know).
One thing I want to discuss is how we can organise the issues on jira I still have had no response from Spring.
P.s. I’ve also setup a mailing list now:
Here are the essentials:
- Group name: spring-modules-fork
- Group home page: http://groups.google.com/group/spring-modules-fork
- Group email address email@example.com
