Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] sandbox karma for "Howard M. Lewis Ship"hlship@apache.org
Date Sat, 31 May 2003 09:44:21 GMT
things are a little confused but this is the way i see it...

infrastructure aren't really happy with people being granted access 
without going through the jakarta pmc. as far as what process is necessary,
  that's up to the jakarta pmc. (there doesn't seem to be much enthusiasm 
on there for formal voting so i'll just be lazy consensus.) we don't need 
a vote on the commons list but someone needs post a request to the jakarta 
pmc.

i don't think that the [PROPOSAL] prefix was a good idea and probably the 
way howard did it was better (posting a personal request to the pmc).
