Subject Re: Apache Zest by-laws
Date Thu, 09 Jul 2015 10:19:10 GMT
Gang,

FIY, we already have some "by-laws" content divided in:

https://zest.apache.org/community/participate.html
https://zest.apache.org/community/playing_field.html
https://zest.apache.org/community/codebase.html


What we don't actually do, and maybe should, is maintain a CHANGES files.

I like the idea and would like to start building one for 2.0 -> 2.1 changes.
Something that should be easy to read, much easier than SCM history.

WDYAT?
