I agree with you Joao, if you use GitHub you'll have everything you need to
collaborate with as many people as you want to get an idea going. You can
recruit teammates on this list. Develop your idea, make wikis, log issues,
manage features, wishlists, and when a project is at a state where you want
to donate you can, or if you want to review it anyone in the community can.
Once something gets voted in by PPMC as a donation we can bring it into a
whiteboard or the SDK, depending on how that pans out. But if I were not a
committer, I would have posted my validators on GitHub instead of the
Apache repository and posted on this list to get feedback, recruit team
members and get it to where I can donate it.
