Subject Re: [ACTION REQUIRED] Nominations for PMC Chair for TLP graduation resolution
Date Wed, 19 Jun 2019 10:39:19 GMT
A one year rotation makes sense to me. 

I’d like to nominate Dave Grove for consideration. Dave is engaged on the general list,
and I’ve consulted him many times on the Apache Way and for pointers to Apache docs. He’s
also lead several releases and followed up on issues noted during voting to tighten our processes
in line with Apache requirements. And he’s authored/submitted more than one report for our
poddling (something I haven’t done yet ;).
