Hi Dave,

hmm - I think that needs a little clarification.

The proposal section is what is being discussed right now - that
proposal was constructed by the folks that work the forums along with
some helpful input form Dennis, Christian and others.

The inital committers / PMC section was really a left over on that page
and doesn't signify who would handle the site admin - at least not to my

(I just add in here, I made a choice to not be part of drafting the
proposal, but I doubt I missed reading any of the discussion, and I was
and am quite happy with what was put together by the group)

So - as for initial comitters/PPMC members section of the page, the list
was just an early list of those with admin/moderator status on the
forums that where _already_ had commit status or PPMC members and is
short at that and just off the top of my head would include:

Kazunari Hirano
Alexandro Colorado
Drew Jensen

I think I'm missing some folks there...darnit, my apologies.

Now the question of site admin - that is a bit tougher - right now that
is me... Terry, I don't know, so I have to assume no, but would love to
be wrong.

So first question is if I could get the migration done - yes, I could
handle that - though I might infuriate the Apache admins doing
it...*smile*...but we will all live through it, I have no doubt.

Going forward it best to have at least 2 individuals - on that all I can
say is that I'm not above begging people to get involved. Of course this
is assuming, or I should say, discounting the  Apache admins - so is
this an issue that must be addressed, absolutely. Do I think it can be
fulfilled, I think so and it shouldn't really be all that big a
deal...but you are correct to bring it up, IMO.

Best wishes,
