The idea of getting this code out to the public hasn't been broadly
discussed yet. It will be pretty obvious as a TLP :-)

I'll be doing the work to extract the Apache Steve code from the private
repository and get it into the public one. I'll look to see who we're
missing (eg. Roy).

Ha! As long as I'm on the PMC, you can count on that. I strongly believe
most PMCs are too rigid with commit access. And the communities that do RTC
via Jira... ridiculous with access. There is no way a person can screw up
the project in RTC, yet they withhold access, and cite all kinds of reasons
for doing so. In reality, they are simply excuses for *exclusionary*
behavior. I have yet to see a valid reason from those communities, but I
have little recourse to get them to fix their behavior.

So Ant: you wanna be on the PMC or have commit? :-)
