In order to clean up our codebase a little bit we decided to remove several module which where not in use anymore and bring in too much dependencies for the “externals” project. Namely “spring” and its huge set of requirements. Since we did not want to throw it away we added a new repository named “org.openscada.contrib” which will hold this stuff. It will stay there and be built together with all other integration builds. But we won’t test it that much or check for compatibility issues.
The master branch is currently empty as the master references to the “1.0” release, in which there was no “contrib” repository. Starting with the “1.1” branch this will be filled.
