Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Graduate Apache PLC4X (incubating) as a TLP
Date Thu, 04 Apr 2019 18:14:00 GMT
Hi -

I am for graduation. I appreciate the need to narrow the PMC to those who are active. I’ll
note that one of your recent additions (noted on the Oct 2018 report) did not continue while
the other did.

Graduating with only 6 PMC is pretty narrow. Are there other developers active who look like
you will want to add to the committer / PMC soon after graduation?

Best Regards,
Dave
