Hi Greg,

And Joe, as I'm sure you noticed, also said:

"THERE IS NO PROBLEM HERE,
CURRENT POLICY FULLY COVERS WHAT AOO ACTUALLY
DOES.  END OF DISCUSSION."

This is my understanding as well.

In any case, you seem to agree with the wording that I gave above,
since you say it represents existing policy.  Since I can find no
place on the IPMC or ASF website where this policy is actually stated
(and please correct me if I missed it), it might be good if we took my
summary from above and put it into the Podling Release Guide.  I know
there is an ongoing effort to clean up the IPMC website.  I'd be happy
to submit a patch.

Regards,

-Rob
