Subject Re: suggestions for improving Thomas' DBGenerataor

Hi all,

We are still discussing on the matter so don't think it won't happen.
Apache works with a 'merit' system to let people in, this to make sure
that we have active committers.

I'm sure we will find a solution you guys agree with.

other committer working together.

potential new committers must prove their interest in the project by submitting several patches
over the period of a year or more before they can become committers. Since we're also not
allowed to just take over your code without written permission things are going to be difficult.
