Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Clarify the role of the Champion as an "incubation coordinator" (was: should podlings have informal chairs?)
Date Thu, 24 Nov 2011 15:44:45 GMT
That would work for me, Bertrand...with the assumption that the 
later *Champion* would be the eventual VP. I think that *has* 
to happen and is consistent with what I have seen even now.

Which brings me to...what's the delta here between this proposal and 
the current norm? What you describe below is really the current 
way it's gone for me at least IMHO, with Tika, with OODT, with Gora,

Perhaps what's different is that we're actually making the role explicit, then, 
and adding to the documentation in a more clear, concise way?
