No specific reason other than its just another accomplishment for the project. Active projects
tend to garner more attention than inactive ones. But im just speculating, so that statement
is far from fact.

This is a concern of the project. The PMC is indeed small. More than half of the original
group has not participated in the last year and have not voiced that they would like to continue
on with the project, leaving us with the group listed in the resolution. I do not know why
these people decided not to continue their participation, but I can assure you that the remaining
members are fully committed to continuing on with the project and we hope to recruit future
members. Graduating will be a big accomplishment for this project and may give this project
more visibility and growth.
Also, on another note, I did not give the vote a deadline. If this list wishes to continue
a vote, it will be open for 72 hours from my original email. I will close the vote Nov 8th
at noon EST.
thanks,Reza


I for sure understand and share the concern. One of the reasons for a project to show it can
grow a community.

The project seems to have a fine technical base, but the lack of community growth is a major
concern for me. Would it not be wise to postpone the graduation, and get the community to
grow first ?

Why do you think graduating will give growth or even more visibility ?

Hi,

Should we perhaps discuss it first?

Seems a little weird to have such a small team to begin with.  How have you
grown?
