Subject Re: [ALL] Volunteers for a Math IPMC?
Date Tue, 14 Jun 2016 18:01:13 GMT
I thought this had been made clear.  Several months Commons voted to make Math a TLP. But shortly
after that most of the people involved with Commons Math felt that a TLP at the ASF would
not work for them, so they forked the project and left, effectively voiding the TLP vote since
the proposed PMC is no longer valid.  There is one person left who was very involved in Commons
Math and a few other people who have expressed interest in joining the new community.  

So this is a situation where we have an already existing code base where a lot of the people
left are not familiar with quite a bit of it.  The new group of people who are interested
are trying to determine how they should move forward. There is some talk of breaking Commons
Math into smaller components and possibly dropping some where there is no one to maintain
