Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Drill for the Apache Incubator
Date Wed, 08 Aug 2012 21:13:44 GMT
The consensus in the group of committers listed in the proposal is
that we would like to discourage piling on of pre-formation committers
and encourage adding committers after formation based on
contributions.  It is clear that there are gobs of people with the
credentials and track record to be potential contributors, but it is
also clear that many of these people have huge demands on their time.
That leaves doubt about how much contribution they can or should be
making to a new project.

It is also clear that there are gobs of people that are not already
part of Apache who may have time and expertise to contribute.

In any case, the vote is already started and will be done before long.
 Let's go with what we are already voting on without changing it in
mid-stream and then adjust later.  Progress, not perfection, as they
say.
