Subject Re: Groovy Champions proposal feedback

hi all,

I was thinking a while about all this and all the problems involved here 
and I want to show an alternative.

Apache Groovy Community Award

Name surely to be changed. The idea is to give a nominal award for what 
they did in the past. Somebody getting this award will get this for a 
reason, which is to be stated.

Since it is no title like "champion" and since we can give a description 
of the reasons the award will be always specific, it is not a title you 
carry around your lifetime and all of that. Maybe a person could be 
awarded multiple times, but that is then to decide. That means there 
will be no discussions about revoking the championship, or for how long 
this is granted. Also I think the award leaves better space for a good 
naming. Also we can give commit access along with it, which may or may 
not be taken, but then includes the official ASF way of recognizing people.

what do you guys think?

bye Jochen
