Dims - I agree with you, with fair warning.  It's clear that the committers
and actual authors are still entirely in HERE and THERE, US and THEM mode.
And I simply ask if the mentors have effectively communicated this sufficiently?

Learning to be part of the ASF partly involves teaching.  The rest involves
giving up the privacy shields.

Some efforts, such as Lokahi, are the efforts of individuals combined into
a great whole.  Steve often contributes a big chunk of functionality.  But
I know him well enough to know he's the one who was hacking at that block
himself for a solid week or two.  If it were the product of collaboration of
a dev team at his company, there would be pushback.

It's not acceptable.  Reset to a monthly reporting requirement. Set the bar
at three months from now to bring development to the list.  If that does
not happen, flush it.

Bill
