Subject Re: Proposal: httpd-like PMC organisation
Date Wed, 23 Oct 2002 03:01:53 GMT
+1 on the proposal to add a commons oversight board.  We don't need to 
name it PMC (the charter doesn't give this oversight board a name, it 
just makes the analogy to the jakarta PMC).

Oh, and I've already volunteered.


p.s. Did anyone else see a 6 hour delay between the time it looks like 
Costin sent this and actually receiving it?
