Re: Status of Joda/Goda time, future of Date handling

That's not particularly suprising to me. One of the reasons that gwt-
time is still listed as being in alpha status is that there is a
possibility of needed further API changes to deal with issues like
that. Unfortunately, I have been distracted for the past little while
and am only just now able to get back to working on it. However, I'll
post an issue-report on the large download size so that we won't
forget it. If any of you are willing, we are looking for contributors
to help get this thing off the ground.
