Hi Floris,

Just my thought on that - if you recall I mentioned that it was time to
let the Apache folks see the proposal and make sure it fits into the
framework here also - it is a two way street..if I understand what is
being said it is merely that this is something not seen before and will
naturally, IMO, get a review from a broader group then just the PPMC.

and now I see that Ross G. has stated pretty much exactly that.

So, just my .02 worth - it doesn't appear to be anything beyond what one
should expect at this point and I would strongly advise not to jump to
any conclusions.

Best wishes,
