I found this interesting.  Do lots of Apache projects have a schedule and
project manager?  I thought that wasn’t really the “Apache Way”.  I
thought committers could commit what they wanted with minimal coordination
amongst themselves without some other person being the gate keeper.  Seems
like that would scare away new committers who just want to scratch their
own itch.
