I'm certainly not going to argue with Cliff on this point, I'm sure he
has seen that commitment and thus can say that's what the people
bringing this proposal to us want to do, but personally, I don't have
that sort of insight into the situation at hand, I haven't had the
sort of interaction with the people involved that Cliff has, so all I
can base my opinion on is what's happened on this mailing list.

In any event, any questions I have about intentions regarding forming
open, meritocratic communities are only being raised because of the
relationship they have with the ability of new contributors to
participate in driving this specification.  The issues are

I have no doubt that this is the case, and if I said anything that
implies otherwise I'm sorry.  I have a great deal of faith in Cliff as
a mentor, and I trust him to do the right thing with regard to
building communities at the ASF.
