Description Shivanand Kini 2008-09-18 23:29:22 UTC
The following modules currently exposes api's to friends and there are lot of friends. Since this is a frequently used
api, can this be made public?
Project open esb is developing lot of xml based editors/projects based on netbeans, which need access to the api's.
Even external partners who want to create xml related tools for their own purpose cannot use it, since the api's are
exposed only to friends.

Review submitted for issue 156540. Soon I'll submit review requests for xml.validation and xml.catalogsupport. They need
some ground work before submission. Please stay tuned.

I'll get to xml.xam.ui and xml.refactoring soon after that.
