You would be astonished about how over the top we have gone with the Apache Way. I say this
with the utmost confidence -- find me ANY other Apache Incubator project that does it this
soundly: (ain't no awkard
(we care…we really really care about the work we do). (scroll to the bottom -- 2 new committers since the
November report)
(RTC policy in effect -- big time) (got all set up with Apache Jenkins
thanks to The Gruno) (find a more active
incubator mailing list -- ain't happening)

And -- in super secret informal talky talky private@, we got Gruno happy to join the TinkerPop
PMC when we graduate and he relinquishes his IPMC role. We will have the fuzz on us at all
times. Entailment -- a bullet proof project. "Oh you have a problem with us Big Mega Corp,
Inc.? You best focus on taking down Apache Hadoop before you get through our titanium-strength
legal armor."

*** Once we get one more PMC, we are coming for you general@incubators. Soon we will throw
our square hat tassel to the other side.
