Subject Re: Beam's recent community development work
Date Mon, 07 Jan 2019 16:28:41 GMT
Hi Kenn,

Thanks for contributing this. I think it's a nice introduction to Beam's community building

Here are a couple of comments:

We want our contributor-base (hence committer-base) to be more spread across companies and
backgrounds, for the usual Apache reasons.

I'd elaborate instead of saying "for the usual Apache reasons". Which reasons are important
to Beam?

(we have committers from community development, tech writing, training, etc).

I'd make this a sentence of its own.

you shouldn't be proposing a committer for other reasons, 

I don't understand "for other reasons".

Every ~month, we call for new discussions and revisit ~all prior discussions. 

I find the "~" to be distracting. Words please.

For a potential committer, we did this:

It's not clear to me when a person becomes a potential committer. Is it in the "repeat contributor"

For an early contributor, 

Perhaps move this paragraph above the "For a potential committer" paragraph?

~3~4 obvious committer candidates

As above, remove "~".

If we have no feedback about which guidelines were a concern, that is a red flag that we are
being driven by bias.

I don't understand this. Lack of concern might be considered a "good thing" not a red flag.

as RMS says 

Who/what is RMS?
