Subject RE: [PROPOSAL] make release 0.1
Date Sat, 01 Aug 2015 17:49:05 GMT
Some contributors may object to their email addresses being put in plaintext files.  

I don't have a workaround, and the ASF uses email addresses as identifiers and as part of
code provenance.  

So long as there is a place where we can recover email addresses from the names we list, I
think we can demonstrate provenance without publishing the email addresses directly.

In general, we do not accept anonymous contributions, so there needs to be a way to handle
the objections, whenever one arrives.

It is probably better to figure this out now rather than wait until a contributor complains.

BTW I volunteer to create this as well.
