Subject Re: OK to add local -ppmc groups to asf-authorization-template?
Date Tue, 27 Jan 2015 15:27:54 GMT
PING - any views on this from the Infrastructure Team please?

I have updated the projects.a.o build process to use the -ppmc entries
if they are found.
So now we just need agreement that it is OK to add these entries to
the asf-auth-template file
