Subject Re: Robust-Task introduction
Date Sun, 22 Mar 2009 05:49:25 GMT
Hi, Matt.
Thanks for your interest and opinion.

As you said, this is food for thought. Honestly I think that Robust-Task is
suitable for Commons rather than incubator for going to TLP. As you
mentioned, however, I am worrying about I don`t have 'commit authority' when
it goes to sandbox.

So, I`d like to know how to obtain 'commit authority' when it goes to
sandbox. Is it possible?

Thanks for your reading.
Cheers.
