Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Apache Rave project
Date Thu, 24 Feb 2011 23:11:38 GMT
In my opinion, a reasonable compromise would be to set it as a project
goal to reduce corporate dependency on the committers list.

I would take that so far as to treat it as a bug, place an issue in
JIRA to that effect, and schedule a date/version for the issue to be
resolved. This will remind everyone to remain focused on attracting a
diverse set of independent individuals, without corporate attachment,
as contributors and eventually as committers.

That said, they are more likely to attract that community as an Apache
Incubator Podling. I would make resolution of the JIRA issue a
blocking task to graduation however. Resolving these kinds of issues
is sort of the point of the Incubator, correct?

Thanks,
Troy
