Sure. Makes sense.

No I think you're right. Lets see if you meeting with here would resolve it.

The question doesn't make sense, since it references a non-existent
(at the time)
entity: Apache NiFi. If we were to re-state her question in such a way that it
does make sense then if would be about exclusion of somebody from participating
in a non-ASF collaboration. From what she said so far -- there was a contract
re-negotiation and it is NOT clear which side ultimately pushed for dropping the
individual from collaboration. It must have been, of course, approved by an
officer of their company.
