Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Finally creating the XML Graphics PMC....
Date Sat, 19 Jun 2004 14:15:55 GMT
Everything is fine--especially adding me to the PMC
;)--but three more proposals to add:

1.)  Jeremias Maerki added to this PMC and also made
head of it.  

2.)  Jeremias Maerki automatically added as committer
to the Batik project at (or just before) time of
formation of XML Graphics.  Batik has not been active
for quite some time, and it needs more committers to
be able to apply patches to its code base.  He is
already well trained in SVG and Java Graphics.

[Bulletin:  Apparently Batik will be getting one more
committer soon:
http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=batik-dev&m=108739195725928&w=2]

3.)  Upon becoming committer, as "price" for Batik
committership, Jeremias will update the licenses on
its source files to the 2.0 license.
