Subject Re: Graduation: how do we check "three or more independent committers" ?
Date Tue, 16 Oct 2007 19:31:55 GMT
Not to go down a rat hole but I think that clarifying the  
affiliations needs some refinement.  On Apache Geronimo we have a few  
committers that work for IBM but their participation is not part of  
their day job.  Would the committer in question for this situation  
state that they are independent?  I'm looking for clarification as I  
expect that this same situation may exist for other incubator  
projects and like Matthieu I would be concerned about creating a set  
of hard rules where what I think we're looking for is project  
independence based on individual merit and contribution.
