Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Gossip incubator proposal
Date Sun, 24 Apr 2016 13:20:04 GMT
HI All,

With helping this proposal achieving a favourable outcome, may I suggest to
do some - albeit subtle (we don't it to be regarded as spam) - promotion
addressed at the Apache Spark community. Spark is AKKA based, and AKKA is a
heavy Gossip user. Maybe some promotion targeted at the AKKa community
might a consideration.

Promotion, in the line of 'we can use your help in building a sustainable
project and thus the product will help the adoption of your <NameOfProject>
project too.

This might bring in the extra hands.

Best regards,

Pierre Smits
