Subject Re: [VOTE] Graduate Apache Marmotta as TLP
Date Tue, 19 Nov 2013 08:07:01 GMT
The way I understand it, we are not taking away any power or
possibility from the project.
The PMC can decide to create bylaws at a later point, we're just
starting off with an empty set for now.

In the end, it feels wrong to just copy some "default" bylaws for
graduation while we had no need for them during incubation.

Best,
Jakob
