Subject Re: [vote] Process for adding committers
Date Wed, 10 Sep 2003 17:28:36 GMT
Surely the basic ideas are the same, though? They are following ASF 
procedures; the only difference proposed by Davanum is that to 
kick-start the process off, rather than waiting for the committers to 
propose people, a number of people step forward in that week and then 
block voting occurs. The only difference is kick-starting the list of 
proposed committers.
