Subject Removing an intial committer from Wookie
Date Tue, 08 Sep 2009 10:12:28 GMT
During the due dilligence process for Wookie one of the named initial
committers refused to sign the iCLA. Upon investigation it emerged
that the author was not sure of the provenance of some of his commits.

I have no concerns about the code being brought into the ASF as the
questionable code has been removed or rewritten (see quote from Scott
below), but since this person is not signing a iCLA it means I need to
remove him from the Wookie proposal. This will leave two initial
committers both of whom have filed iCLAs.

I assume that there is no need to call a new vote on acceptance of
Wookie, and will proceed regardless. However, if someone has a concern
please raise it.


PS re removal of questionable code Scott Wilson says: "With his
cooperation I've now removed all his code from the project, and
replaced it with new code I've written (and where this is derived from
public examples/how-tos, noted this in comments). This wasn't a big
job; most of the code wasn't actually called by the current codebase
and could be safely removed without being replaced."
