Subject Re: [DISCUSS] [PMC] Proposed PMC Chair
Date Fri, 28 Sep 2012 18:10:00 GMT
Hello Yong Lin;

I want to thank you for the nomination. I have toyed with the idea but I don't think
I am the ideal candidate for it.

I am rather particular in that I was never a part of the previous Oracle-led community
so I am afraid that at this time I can't really take a good decision towards whom it
should be (in fact the candidate I had, declined joining the PMC).

I would prefer if the PMC chair election were postponed until after ApacheCon to have
the chance of meeting in person other community members.

Pedro.
