The message that I'm in receipt of numerous messages
expressing concerns, many by people who feel intimidated
about raising them publicly.  The message that hints and
nudges and commentary have been inadequate to the task of
changing things such that the concerns are allayed.  The
message that the continued existence -- over months -- of
these concerns represents a situation detrimental to the
project.  The message that this is an Apache project, not
a Codehaus or SourceForge one, and that I personally am
ultimately responsible to Apache for its healthy functioning.

Forcing approval to happen in the open rather than by
default will either alter the nature of code changes or it
won't.  If it does the concerns may have foundation; if
it doesn't they should be put to rest thereby.

This is not something I did either lightly or arbitrarily.
