Subject Re: Returning to Commit-Then-Review?
Date Wed, 23 Aug 2006 16:53:21 GMT
 From a purely discussion perspective I'm in favor of a change.  I'm not sure a total shift
to CTR 
is appropriate but I'm not particularly opposed to it either.  I don't think the development
itself is the issue.  The major issue that we've been dealing with is the community dynamics
alignment of people's interests and Apache's community model (or lack of alignment).

I would expect that if we were to move to CTR we'd see a continuation of what we're doing
now with 
the exception that all changes would not require the current voting requirements.  I plan
reviewing the commits as they go in  (as Jason alluded to in another thread).  I think we
all are 
expecting more things to be documented via JIRA for improved documentation and communication.
major items are announced as their inspired so the community can provide feedback in the form
comments or assistance.  We all assume comments are constructive and spend a few minutes thinking

about an e-mail before sending it (boy and I guilty of violating this one:)

Overall, I'm in favor of changing.  Part of me would like to simply go to RTC and let the
dynamics prove themselves.  Definitely not a return to the previous model though.
