Subject Re: Fwd: [Db Wiki] Trivial Update of "FernandoO" by FernandoO
Date Mon, 08 Apr 2013 18:18:20 GMT
I logged INFRA-6125. I took a stab at some of the names, actually. Maybe
the admingroup is a little large now, but I thought it ok.
We can change it later if need be.

When implemented, we should update the wiki with a blurp on how folks get
to be added.
I can think of 2 approaches:
1. send a request to a select number of volunteers (who volunteers?)
2. send a request to derby-dev.

Checking over the 'recentchanges' looks like Knut got first to most of the
bad ones - thanks!
