    Cosmetic change. MC annotations. Is it worth it?

    Adrian Brock Master

      I know its only a cosmetic change, but I discovered yesterday that
      the annotations are in the "plugin" package:
      [url]http://viewvc.jboss.org/cgi-bin/viewvc.cgi/jbossas/projects/microcontainer/trunk/kernel/src/main/org/jboss/beans/metadata/plugins/annotations/[url]

      This should really be in an api (as opposed to spi) pacakge
      since they are used by applications. e.g.

      org.jboss.beans.metadata.api.annotations

      There should also be a seperate jar such that projects can just consume the annotations
      without the whole microcontainer.

      If we are going to fix this then it is best to do it early before more projects
      start using the "plugin" name.
      But that would mean releasing a beta5 of the MC and getting the other projects
      that have already started using the annotations to use the new name.
