Subject [DISCUSS] <Initial Committer>: Apache Initial Committer Status
Date Fri, 22 Jul 2011 03:10:20 GMT
There are 20 Initial Committers on the incubator proposal who have not yet submitted
iCLAs or informed us of their intention not to do so.

Today I used the following format for a message to one of those Initial Committers.

Before 19 more of these are sent out I wanted to check how understandable this is.

I am particularly concerned for how clear this is for those who are not native English speakers.

I welcome your advice.

 - Dennis
