Subject Re: Feedback requested: New committer invitation template
Date Tue, 01 Jan 2019 00:59:23 GMT
Hi Daniel,

The work you did here is indeed excellent. The only trouble I have with it is that most people
cannot use a mouse or trackball or touch pad to create a signature that looks anything like
their signature. [This is the same issue I have with voting machines that verify voters' signatures
against touch pad/mouse signatures.]

That said, I have no issue if you would like to update the official web page with instructions
on how to use this tool. http://www.apache.org/licenses/#submitting

If you can update the tool to allow the user to sign electronically (and to upload their public
key) it will get my enthusiastic support.

Regards,

Craig

the print-type-sign-scan-email routine for Apache ICLAs (and does verify that user ID is both
available and matches our syntax). Could be an idea to point to that for easy ICLA work :)
