Subject clarification on jakarta guidelines proposal
Date Wed, 06 Nov 2002 12:04:40 GMT
in looking for references to costin's remarks about revolution,
i found <url:http://jakarta.apache.org/site/proposal.html>.  i don't
know if that's the document from which he was working, but it's
an interesting read nonetheless.

however, there is one section that i think needs clarification.
under the pmc membership section,

> The Chair or any member may be removed from the PMC by a
> super-majority vote of the PMC members.

that is only partially possible.  the chair of a pmc can *not* be
removed by anyone except the asf board of directors, because the chair
has the board-delegated legal authority over and responsibility for
the project.

the pmc (or anyone, for that matter) may petition the board for
removal/change of a chair, but it does not have the power to make the
change itself.
