Apologies to Greg. I'd said I would send this on to the list but didn't 
get around to it last week. (2 emails forwarded below).

I tried posting to community@apache, but can't unless I'm
subscribed, and already feel like I'm on waaaay too many mailing lists.
If you (or someone) could point out that the article isn't really about
gender imbalance per se, but rather about what the gender imbalance
reveals about deeper flaws (in our opinion) in open source, that'd be very
helpful.

HI, Henri.  Thanks for your posting to community@apache.org about our
article.  I just wanted to say that the point of the piece wasn't the
gender imbalance in open source per se, but rather that (a) the imbalance
highlights a fundamental skew in the makeup of most open source projects,
and (b) that skew is now hampering open source's growth.

Thanks,
Greg
