Arvind, I don't take disagreements like this personally and I hope you don't either.   I have
every intention of staying with the project after graduation and hopefully, finding a way
to commit code as there are a number of areas I believe I can contribute.

At this point my recommendations are:
1. Since the PPMC voted to separate being a committer and being a PMC member I would wait
a couple of months and then add the new non-Cloudera committers to the PPMC if it is warranted.
2. Of course, add any new committers who have earned it.
3. Send an email to the entire PPMC asking them to confirm that they want to remain on the
PMC after graduation.
4. Based on that we will know what the making of the post-graduation PMC will look like.
5. Raise the topic of graduation as a discussion item either on the PMC or dev list after
the above 4 are completed.
