Subject Re: [DISCUSS] On the Maven PMC roles... (was [DISCUSS] Should the Maven PMC be an example of how we want the Maven Community to behave...)
Date Mon, 05 Aug 2013 11:44:18 GMT
Some small formating or typos.
Added commas in a long sentence around line 280 and another one around
l298. I generally find it hard to concentrate on a whole sentence without
commas (or even periods separating ideas).
See https://gist.github.com/Batmat/6155302 for proposed patch.
If you need any other attachment format, just let me know.

Cheers
