There are things discussed on the PMC that (conceivably) should not be in
the wide public. Specifically, discussions about specific people.

Agreed. I easily see that stuff simply moving over. The apr-core/STATUS
file, however, is a nice place to track the initial startup issues for the

In the long-term, I would expect the apr-core/STATUS file to be quite empty.
Heck, I can't even think of what else would be in the apr-core repository
beyond the STATUS file.

But: we probably still need a CVS repository for the "behind the scenes"
stuff, much like the need for a mailing list.

I could easily see making the website a subdirectory of the PMC repository.
For example:


And then we pull apr-core/www/ into locus:/www/apr.apache.org

Hrm. That doesn't work. Any Committer should probably have access to both
apr-site/ and apr/. Only PMC members have the apr-core/ repository access.
Unless we start getting funky with groups and unix perms on locus, it is a
bit difficult to combine the two modules because of the disjoint
authorization. (currently, all three APR CVS modules use the "apr" group).

I might see a way to combine apr/ and apr-site/, but that could lead to some

Understood, but I think we do have a necessary/proper division.
