Subject Re: No votes on @general?
Date Wed, 08 May 2013 19:10:09 GMT
This is larger debate for me. I've been watching the @general thread and reading some old blog
posts regarding Apache. I'd like to see Apache become leaner. I'm new to Apache so it's pretty
rude to be complaining at this point, but I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels this way:
getting a project set up in Apache is very painful compared to Github and it shouldn't be
so. The best things about Apache are the encouragement of community, support, legal and quality
validations, etc. The worst things about Apache are its tool chain and its beaurocratic-ness.

 To be respectful of other members' time we allow 72 hours so that thoughtful reviews can
take place.

Is that normal? Can we move to release with just our group's votes? I'd hope to close voting
tomorrow (72 hours).
