Subject RE: [PROPOSAL] ODF Toolkit for Incubation
Date Thu, 21 Jul 2011 17:23:55 GMT
 1. In the proposal,

"The coders on the existing ODF Toolkit will comprise the initial committers on the Apache
project. These committers have varying degrees of experience with Apache-style open source
development, ranging from none to being committers on other Apache projects."

That strikes me as inadequately expansive/inclusive.  It makes me wonder, why doesn't the
project simply stay where it is?  You appear to have a definite roadmap for how you want to
see this project proceed.

 2. Also, the current code carries template Apache ALv2 notices with copyright statements
such as

    * Copyright 2008, 2010 Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    * Copyright 2009, 2010 IBM. All rights reserved.
    * [... usual ALv2 template text ...]

Is it intended that there be an SGA or will this code simply be adapted as licensed?  [I am
curious because I have been restructuring some projects of mine along these lines and I'd
like to see how that works.]

 3. In the code base, there appear to be other committers (e.g., Devin and Michel).  Is there
some reason they are not among the initial committers?  Are the listed Initial Committers
the only current committers on the ODF Toolkit projects?

 4. Can we know the contact e-mail and current iCLA status of the initial committers?

 - Dennis

I would like to help as well. Are people allowed to add their names to the proposal?
