Subject RE: [DISCUSS][PMC] Proposed PMC List
Date Thu, 20 Sep 2012 17:08:32 GMT
Dave, I'm puzzled.  

I thought this thread and the one on which nominations are being made was at the initiative
of Andrew Rist.

Are you and he collaborating on compilation of the results?

It would be great if there was a single compilation of the results, it could be verified by
anyone, and there can be subsequent discussion on what to make of it, if anything.

Apache POI is an example. The PMC considers the public vote to be an incentive for contributors.
Since votes happen very infrequently it does not add a lot of traffic to the lists.

I think that process here is proceeding well. I hope to put together a list on Sunday when
I return home.

If a wiki is created before then perhaps it should list only names without a count. That way
we can all see if anyone is missing.
