Subject Re: Accounts, Commit Karma & PPMC membership for CXF
Date Fri, 06 Oct 2006 22:05:33 GMT
Hi Dan,

I followed the discussion on incubator-general and I think the way 
you/they are dealing with this issue is the most transparent possible.
Even if I didn't take part in the discussion myself, I felt somewhat 
involved as well.

You know that I haven't been the most active committer of XFire in the 
past and I certainly will not be the most active for CXF in the future 
as well and you know that it isn't laziness but workload that holds 
people like me from taking a bigger piece of the cake. I admire you and 
the other very active committers but I have difficulties following the 
pace you are moving forward. On the other hand, I find it indispensible 
to have a very diverse community including people only stepping in 
occasionally -- like myself.

I've got an apache account already, but I would like to have write 
access to the wiki and committer status for JIRA, so that I can be 
assigned issues.

If you can cope with me being one of the least active committers, I'd be 
proud to be a part of the project.
