Hi Bertrand,

I am not sure I understand.  Are you saying you believe the Incubator PMC 
will fail us strictly due to having 13 tgz/tar files vs. 1 for a first 
release?  Again, it makes no sense to me as it is strictly a choice of 
logical separation (representative of our architectural parts) and 
packaging?   Surely you see that can and it is technically not hard to 

Are you saying they need to be "eased into the concept" because we will 
have 13 (now and more eventually); at some point the board will be exposed 
to multiples.

Plus a single repo. source is not usable by itself and its build dependent 
on the other parts as I mentioned earlier.

Kind regards,

We can try, but as I said I'm not sure if the Incubator PMC will
accept this for a first release.

Even releasing a single module that's not usable by itself is progress
w.r.t. the incubation process, where it's the process and legal
aspects that count, for initial incubating releases, more than the
technical viability of the product. There's even no obligation to
"advertise" those releases, considering them training releases is

But we can try if that's what the majority of the PPMC wants and if
the other mentors do not disagree.

I think it's easy to understand the technical justification for
releasing multiple modules together - my angle is just the "incubation
training" one.
