Here's the summary of the activity on cosmo-dev for the week of March  
25, 2007.

New threads:
-------

Brian Moseley posted an update on the status of Cosmo 0.6.1
<http://lists.osafoundation.org/pipermail/cosmo-dev/2007-March/

Brian Moseley reported on Hibernate Shards (horizontal partitioning  
technology)

003288.html>

Bobby Rullo wanted to know when/how to get changes from the Cosmo  
0.6.1 branch into the Dashboard branch.  This started a long thread  
about how to merge back the various branches and get to a saner state  
of the world.

003299.html>

Ted Leung proposed using Windmill to drive JSUnit unit tests instead  
of using Rhino based solution.  A bunch of discussion ensued, but the  
end result is that Adam Christian will work to make Windmill drive  
the JSUnit test, and he will make sure that Windmill is not required  
in order to run the unit tests.

Travis Vachon pointed out some issues that arose during the merge of  
the Cosmo 0.6.1 branch back to the trunk.  The remainder of the  
thread contained the discussion of how to resolve those issues.    
Mike Taylor (bear) lent a hand and the trunk was restored to an  
expected state.

0.6.1

Brian Moseley posted a proposal for replacing JSON-RPC with Atom.  A  
few people are going to spend a few days on a prototype of this idea  
to test its feasibility for Preview.  The discussion includes the  
risks that the prototype is intended to address

Ted Leung pointed out the need to minimize the number of changes to  
the trunk now that it contained the Cosmo 0.6.1 branch.   Another  
branch management discussion ensued.
