Subject RE: Size of the PMC
Date Wed, 07 Mar 2001 17:19:31 GMT
Just as non-committers get to voice their opinion on the dev lists, non-PMC
project representatives should take it upon themselves to monitor the PMC
list and express their opinions. The few times when secrecy are necessary
are generally boring as hell (legal analysis of patents, trademarks, etc.).

The fact that any one project doesn't have a member with a vote, be it Xang,
Batik, or even Cocoon, doesn't overly concern me. The project votes I've
been a part of I've frequently seen a non-commiter will bring up a point
that changes a bunch of votes after they've been cast. I'm sure whoever
becomes the PMC members will be open-minded and dispassionate.

+1

My only concern is that a commitee such formed may not contain individuals
that adequately follow each of the code bases.  Batik and Xang are the two
that keep coming up.

I'm not overly concerned about the size of the group.
