Subject Re: [project policy] Author credit and attribution
Date Mon, 03 Oct 2005 18:38:13 GMT
Initially the discussion had a component of author tags.  It will be 
easy to change the policy of author tags to not than vice versa.  Even 
easier to allow all to do as they feel initially and set a uniform 
policy later when the binding votes can be cast by a basic quorum of 
those whom it will affect.

Since the vote is about author tags in code, the point is that I think 
there should be a vote taken AFTER those who have donated code have 
committer status.
