Subject PMC chair role and rotation
Date Thu, 15 Nov 2012 08:27:24 GMT
Hi,

As Flex's first PMC chair is being discussed, and as there's often
confusion about that, I'd like to remind people that in general the
PMC chair does not have more power than other PMC members, it's "just"
a liaison role with the Apache board of directors.

So, many thanks to whoever accepts, as it's a thankless role sometimes
- well, of course you get a VP title so it's not that bad ;-)

Details at http://www.apache.org/dev/pmc.html and
http://www.apache.org/foundation/how-it-works.html#pmc

Also, IMO it's a good idea to re-discuss the PMC chair once a year -
not necessarily change it, but at least ask the current chair if they
want to continue or step down, and give others the opportunity to step
up. Being a PMC chair gives you more insight about how the foundation
works and how other projects are doing, so it's good to rotate in
order to spread that knowledge and experience.

HTH,
-Bertrand (trying not to sound too much like an old-fartish incubation
mentor ;-)
