>Why aren't the Struts tags maintained as part of the Jakarta Taglibs project?

Ted Husted

At first, it was to make it easier to develop the tags as the rest of the framework was developed. Placing the tags in another repository would mean that we would have to be more careful about changes and deprecations as people would be using them in other environment. Once the set of standard tags is published (this is in progress now), we will refactor the Struts tag libraries, and offer the remaining multi-use tags to Jakarta taglibs.
