Subject Re: [Math] Commons Math (r)evolution
Date Fri, 10 Jun 2016 18:54:33 GMT
We already voted to make it go TLP and it passed.  The original chair of
the new project isn't available any more.  Gilles, are you willing to chair
the new project?  Is anyone else willing to help Gilles perhaps take Math
through the incubator to gather more momentum?  Can we perhaps reach out to
the incubator PMC and ask them for guidance on if this is even a good idea?
