        Subject:        [Lazy VOTE] Updated Apache XML Graphics resolution proposal


To address the concerns of the Apache board I'd like to present to you
an updated resolution proposal. The only things that have changed are
the list of names for the initial PMC. I'm glad Keiron Liddle offered to
help us. Bertrand Delacrétaz may join us later.

I'm presenting this to you only to make sure that everybody has a chance
to chime in, in case something's wrong. I called this a lazy vote, so
there's no need to send in a pile of +1s again. Just in case somebody
thinks there's something wrong, please make yourself heard within the
next 48h.

BTW, we've got a good chance that we get approval by the board before
weekend.

This lazy vote will close at 21:59 GMT, Wednesday September 29, 2004:
