Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Concur for Apache Incubator
Date Wed, 23 Nov 2016 14:35:47 GMT
I think we should in principle aim for also a larger diversity in the
initial committers for a straight-to-TLP,
https://github.com/hortonworks/concur/graphs/contributors does not
show anyone that is not working for Hortonworks - but the proposed
committers (aka proposed PMC?) have broad ASF experience.

Perhaps the stay in the incubator would be short before graduation,
after the project shows non-Hortonworks folks are engaged.

Has this proposal or code base been discussed in any of the Hadoop
lists? I could not find anything in the list archives, but then I'm
not too familiar with Hadoop. Or perhaps it was discussed elsewhere
since development started in April?
