Subject Re: [DRAFT] Incubator PMC Board Report - August 2016
Date Mon, 08 Aug 2016 21:54:12 GMT
An internal/asf EE umbrella rather.

BatchEE got more exposure than most G shared projects so not super
motivating from my point of view.

What is the real issue staying self contained? Why should a project get 500
commits and 500 mails a month once stable - or what is the evaluation there?
