Great work, now the catch is, all of this development needs to be
happening out in the open at Apache. It’s something that is required
of any open source project at the ASF.

So, the next cycle of reporting, let’s say next month, we need
to have all the of the below type of actions, but to have them play
out on list, and not in meeting  rooms at JPL where others can’t

Does that make sense?
