Subject RE: Soliciting feedback for a detailed pTLP policy document
Date Tue, 03 Mar 2015 03:49:49 GMT
Can you please remove the requirement for 3 legally independent PMC members. What we require
is a PMC that operates as a meritocracy. This is possible even in a monoculture PMC. It's
also possible to have the independent representatives that act in collusion.

3 independents was a useful yardstick in the original IPMC policies. Over the years it became
a concrete requirement. We should go back to the original intent both in the IPMC and the
pTLP proposal.

Subject: Soliciting feedback for a detailed pTLP policy document


since a few board members requested a detailed document
outlining the exact policy of a pTLP project, I've created this:
which is modeled after the Incubator policy document. My rationale
is this: if the level of details of the Incubator policy is considered
good enough for poddlings, holding pTLP project to higher level
of standard would be unfair.

At this point, I would like to open this document for soliciting as
wide a feedback as possible. I would like to especially request
attention of the ASF board members who asked for this type of
a document to be available.

Please feel free to either comment on this email thread or edit
the document directly (do send me your Confluence IDs so I can
give you karma, though).

I would like to see if we can build consensus around this policy
in time for the March board meeting so that Zest can try one more
time to join ASF as a pTLP project.
