Subject Re: Incubator PMC/Board report for Dec 2012 ([ppmc])
Date Mon, 03 Dec 2012 18:42:19 GMT
Was I that depressing? :)

I don't mind seeing it become a bit more upbeat on any point, though I
thought it might be best to mention past concerns. I would actually say
that if we knew that we could get through the incubator vote within a week,
I would be very happy with that. It is the uncertainty and lack of
discussion that remains a problem.

It is fine to change points 2 and 3 for new issues if we feel that there is
anything more important.

I am considering bringing up our request to be able to use our repository
browser on our directories in the asf repository as that request does not
look like it has been looked at by infra since August.

Cheers,
    Gary
