Subject Re: [mentors] experimental graduation maturity assessment in view of graduating Groovy
Date Thu, 15 Oct 2015 09:58:35 GMT
Thanks Bertrand for setting this up. I like the idea of having concrete,
non subjective criteria for graduating, even if it could mean in our case
that graduating would be "stricter". Here are some of my comments on the

At least for me, yes. The model is OpenOffice, which has it's dedicated
domain. It's also much easier for us given our publication model (docs in
subdomains, ...) and the history of the project. My vision to this, what we

We have, but not linked from top-level
page or menu. The mandatory links must be added.
