JB

>>>>>
>>>>> ### Community
>>>>>
>>>>> brpc has been building an active community since its open source.

>>>>> ### Core Developers

>>>>> ## Known Risks
>>>>>
>>>>> ### Orphaned Products
>>>>>
>>>>> Since our core developers are from different companies and many

>>>>>
>>>>>
>>>>> ### Inexperience with Open Source
>>>>>
>>>>> brpc has been an active open source project for more than one year.
>>>>> During that time, the project has attracted 30+ contributors and
>>>>> gained
>>>>> a lot of attention.
>>>>> The core developers are all active users and followers of open source.
>>>>>
>>>>> ### Homogenous Developers
>>>>>
>>>>> brpc was created inside Baidu, but after brpc was open sourced, it
>>>>> received a lot of bug fixes and enhancements from other developers not
>>>>> working at Baidu.
>>>>> And the core developers now are from different companies now.
>>>>>
>>>>> ### Reliance on Salaried Developers
>>>>>
>>>>> Baidu invested in brpc as a general rpc framework used in company
>>>>> widely.
>>>>> The core developers have been dedicated to this project for about four
>>>>> years.
>>>>> And after its open source, developers around the world have involved
>>>>> in.
>>>>> Besides, we want more developers and researchers to contribute to the
>>>>> project.
>>>>>
>>>>> ### An Excessive Fascination with the Apache Brand
>>>>>
>>>>> The mission of brpc is to help developers build reliable and
>>>>> high-performance services quickly and easily.
>>>>> It has been widely used in production environment throughout Baidu and
>>>>> after opensource, it has gained much attention and attracted
>>>>> developers
>>>>> all over the world.
>>>>> Apache Brand is very respected. We are very honored to have the
>>>>> opportunity to join ASF, with the understanding that its brand
>>>>> policies
>>>>> being respected.
>>>>> And we hope Apache can help us build the ecosystem around brpc and
>>>>> attract more developers.
