Subject Re: [VOTE] Gora Graduation Resolution
Date Sun, 18 Dec 2011 04:19:01 GMT
Niclas,

I am not sure about your statement: " is very vague and encompassing.
When read, it could mean anything", because it has specifically
mentioned that the a Project Management Committee  will be created to
maintain open source project related to persistence, storage, and
retrieval middleware for relational and NoSQL databases. I dont think
it could mean "anything", for example it couldnt be interpreted as
project about MVC framework.
Could you be more specific about your concern?

I also dont understand what do you mean by "one would ask why has that
expanded here" ?
