Re: Federated code - IRC message


Hi Monty, Pat, Kristian

I'll raise this again.... I think that federatedx should just be renamed back to federated, and built-in by default to replace old federated. The original federated is old, buggy, and the new one is backwards compatible anyway. No loss, all win.

We should probably try to fix that for the test suite.
Kristian, do you have any ideas for this ?

Yes, that is what you need to do (as far as I know).
