Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Move Lucy to the Incubator
Date Sun, 11 Jul 2010 19:46:43 GMT
Hi Guys,

I'm fully behind this proposal and plan to support it with what limited cycles I have. Note
to Hoss: since you're an ASF member, you can become an Incubator PMC member automatically
by sending an email to private@incubator and asking Noel to add you to the Incubator PMC.

As noted in the proposal, Chris Mattmann (a former Lucene PMC member, and
current Incubator PMC Member) has volunteered to be a Mentor.

I am certainly planning to be "mentor" for Lucy, and I am also willing to
be a "Mentor" but (a) I am not a member of the Incubator PMC, and (b) I
have no experience mentoring a Podling.  While 'a' may be solvable by just
holding a vote to make me a PMC Member, 'b' is my primary concern: We're
really hoping we can find a couple of engaged "Mentors" who have previous
experience mentoring Podlings.

Speaking for myself: I have not personally pushed very hard to try and get
other capital M Mentors from the Lucene community because I am mildly
concerned about Lucy leaning/drawing too heavily on mentorship from the
Lucene community.  Part of the motivation for moving to the Incubator is
to try and get broarder guidance & participation to help Lucy stand on
it's own two feet as a TLP.
