Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Graduate Apache Druid (incubating) as a TLP
Date Thu, 18 Jul 2019 16:22:24 GMT
Hey Justin,

Thanks for your comments.

The other repos under contain projects loosely
affiliated with Apache Druid but that are not seen as part of the core
project. Some of them have ongoing discussions about whether the community
wants to migrate them to Apache (as sub projects, maybe, or as part of
Apache Druid proper) or perhaps sunset them. I expect these conversations
to continue after graduation.

On the topic of branding, the PPMC is definitely aware of its
responsibilities in that area. Internally we have updated our own project
site branding, and externally we've reached out in a few cases already to
ask for the Apache Druid name to be used correctly and to clarify the
independent nature of the project. We hadn't reached out before about the
two specific documents you mentioned, but I just did a few minutes ago.

On the topic of committers and PPMC members, from my POV the reason for
adding a bunch of committers at once was that once we started thinking
about adding more, a variety of names came up at once. I think in the
future we’ll likely invite additional people in a more typical manner.
We’ve recently invited all active committers to join the initial PMC slate,
and I expect we’d continue a policy of having an inclusive PMC.

Your point on committer merit as it relates to noncode contributions is
noted. It is something that we should keep an open mind on.
