Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Pulsar - proposal for Apache Incubation
Date Thu, 27 Apr 2017 12:59:39 GMT
Certainly, this is one of the main aspects of Incubation surely,
to create a healthy community around a codebase and a project.

I personally don't think considerations of how large or small
a base is pertinent at this stage. The original Apache httpd
project had an *extremely* small initial base ;)
