Subject [DISCUSS] Solicitation for IPMC Chair nomination
Date Mon, 26 Jan 2015 18:45:45 GMT

after making sure that there's still an Incubator
to be managed for the next 6-12 months, I'd like
to open up a discussion thread on soliciting
nominations for the next IPMC Chair.

Feel free to self-nominate or nominate folks who
you know. Provide a summary of your 'program'

    mentoring situation in the Incubator.

    * Henry Saputra
In my view, both have demonstrated an exceptional
understanding of the 'Apache Way', dedication to
mentoring podlings they are responsible for and enthusiasm
around bringing new communities into the ASF family.
On top of that, both have exercised a remarkable skill
