Subject Re: Code into SVN, not the WIKI (Re: [arch] VMCore / Component Model)
Date Tue, 20 Sep 2005 13:29:53 GMT

It's catch 22.  There weren't any legitimate committers (because there 
was no initial code base) at the beginning of the project to "vote". 
Because of this, there needs to be a lower barrier of entry than a 
formal procedure.  Otherwise I might suggest a segment of the willing go 
off and create an initial codebase in a CVS/SVN somewhere that is more 
open and then submit it.  For a project with no code this seems a bit 
officious.  Let the "likely" people in (Mladen for instance is an apache 
committer in good standing who has plans to do something) and then let 
Darwin sort them out.  Then they can vote in committers in the normal 
way.  The project needs code!!!  Rather than being officious, the goal 
should be to facillitate every means possible to make that happen.  It 
will be messy and there will be serveral misdirections but thats what a 
repository is for.  Forward momentum.
