Subject Re: [DRAFT][ANNOUNCE] Apache Commons grants write access to all ASF committers
Date Mon, 15 Dec 2014 03:02:00 GMT
Nice feedback all around. Here is a version that includes some of these
thoughts:
--

Dear fellow committers,

The Apache Commons Team is pleased to announce that write access to the
Apache Commons Subversion and Git repositories has been granted to all ASF
committers.

Apache Commons is an Apache project focused on all aspects of reusable Java
components. As such, the components maintained by the Apache Commons project
may be of interest to a variety of other Apache projects.

The Apache Commons community would like to invite you to share and maintain
useful code.

While Apache Commons is a Commit-Then-Review community, we would consider
it polite and helpful for contributors to announce their intentions and
plans on the dev mailing list before committing code.


Have fun,

The Apache Commons Community.
