Subject Re: Tez graduation [Was: Request for mentor assessment]

Regardless of whether it is an explicit requirement to have some specific level of diversity,
there is a requirement that the group demonstrate community building.  

The page in question may be incorrect, but as it stands it does not appear that a diverse
community has been built. 

I am sympathetic to the encouragement of company participation, but I don't think that it
serves apache to have projects that are effective stalking horses for what are effectively
private communities. 

My sensitivity on this point is largely informed by the efforts we have made to build the
drill community beyond the core team funded by MapR. I felt at the beginning of that project
and still feel strongly that it is critical for a project to develop into a truly open community.
Building a real community is hard work and it doesn't happen by accident, especially in a
high pressure competitive environment.  My own opinion is that this effort is not optional.


If the problem is simply an out of date web page and a good level of diversity exists, that
would be an excellent outcome. If the web page is, however, accurate then I do see this as
a problem that needs to e addressed.
