Subject RE: [DISCUSS] <Initial Committer>: Apache Initial Committer Status
Date Sat, 23 Jul 2011 19:24:44 GMT

You have more information than I do on the subject (having never figured out how to access
the ooo-dev subscriber list).

My impression is that most of those I am proposing to contact have not made an appearance
on the ooo-dev list.  

I think there have been a post or two by a couple of them.

This effort is mainly to ensure that they are not out of communication through any oversight
on our part.

Dennis, looking at the 19 who have not responded and the subscribers
to the list, do you have a sense of how many fit into these

1) Never showed up at all.  No iCLA, not subscribed to ooo-dev, heard
nothing from them at all?

2) Signed up on the list, but inactive

3) Signed up and active on the list.
