To take a guess, I believe Sam is saying "if you'd like to sign onto
infrastructure-dev and help to make it happen, then great." In other
words, don't just make a proposal, but roll up your sleeves to make it

Now... it sounds like you *did* roll up your sleeves and talked to TDF
folks about infrastructure capability over there, but (unfortunately)
that plan isn't workable. As the "suggested plan" discussion morphed
towards "Git at ASF", it didn't seem you were moving towards solving
(say) LDAP and Git integration :-P ... thus we end up with you and Sam
talking past each other.
