Hi guys.

I am writing couple of filters and resources for public domain and have no
idea what package should I put it into. I know the most valid choice is to
put it under my reversed DNS name (AU.COM.ACCESS.JIGSAW) but it seems to me
not many people would like to create such deep directory structures just to
put one or two resource/filters (that is if anybody would like my stuff at
all :-{ ).
I for one would prefer to have one (two at most) roots for all my jigsaw stuff.

Currently, when I am writing resources they go under w3c.jigsaw.personal.
That is Ok for me, but I don't think it is the best for others.

Maybe we should make a decision as to where is the best place to put all PD
stuff that is not part of standard Jigsaw distribution. Maybe
Jigsaw.Contributions.[userName]. All my packages would then go under
Jigsaw.Contributions.AlexandreRafalovitch and ImageCounterFilter would go
under Jigsaw.Contributions.PasqualeDiFeo.

Any suggestions and/or opinions.

Alex.
Ps. I am not trying to start big flame war about generic practise of
package naming. THAT was discussed on Strong-Java list and several others
enough. I am just talking about place to put small number of files related
only by Author.
PPS. I could of course put filters into filters and resources into
resources packages, but I would really prefer to keep standard distribution
separate from my experiments :-}. I might be wrong... ;-{
