Subject Re: m2migration branch - thoughts?
Date Wed, 05 Jul 2006 20:35:20 GMT
I need someway to move forward... RTC with a ton of patches waiting  
for votes just isn't working.

So, if we can not commit to trunk, we need to find a way to  
effectively merge from branches so that development can actually use  
the source control system to manage work and effectively share that  
work with others so they can really see what is going on with  
relative ease.

Or do away with this RTC mess which IMO has proven itself to be non- 
functional in our environment with only PMC votes counting.  Or do  
away with the PMC and make all votes count, or make everyone a PMC  
member, or... anything to move forward... futzing or not.
