Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Apache NetBeans Incubator Proposal
Date Sun, 25 Sep 2016 06:59:12 GMT
Hi All,

I am a netbeans user that has been following this thread since the
proposal was announced and I am a little fascinated with this whole
process, it seems rather interesting...

Although this initial committer list seems to be a sticking point, but
from reading this page: I'm not
sure why it is...

I have contributed defect fixes for JClouds in the past, and from what
I see on this project is that there's an GitHub repo that allows
people to contribute PR's, but theres also a ASF repo, which the
contributors actually merge in the PRs from GitHub into the "hidden"
ASF repo...   Is this how every ASF project runs? and is this how
Apache Netbeans would run?  Because if so, do you want to give a wide
list of committers initially?

I would have thought it would make sense to keep the number to a group
of trusted people that Netbeans/GJ trust up front to commit PRs into
the main repo, and to make short term decisions.  Then if a
developer/contributor shows themselves to be a useful part of the
community then you can quickly vote to change their status...

Anyways I'm going to go back to lurking in the background...
