Subject Re: [Discussion] How do we get more people involved signing off on releases?
Date Thu, 18 Feb 2016 08:10:23 GMT
That's very nice but that's part of what I'm trying to get to the bottom
of. Every release is voted on by the same people.

If suddenly Chris, Lewis and Sean left to train to be astronauts or decided
to "do a Snowden" ;) we'd find it almost impossible to get 3 +1s to do a
release and that is pretty precarious.

So back to the question how do we get more of 45 PMC members involved? Is
it because they no longer do OODT stuff, lack of instructions or something
else. Or is we can't do that how do we get more willing volunteers?
