Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Drop requirement that ASF members can join IPMC by just asking
Date Tue, 13 Aug 2019 06:29:19 GMT

I'm a new IPMC Member (no foundation member) and come from a PLC4X which has graduated months
I already started to help other Podlings a bit.

And I agree with Dave in the sense that we should seek our way not in locking-out people but
in finding ways to draw in more people.
It was already said multiple times that people from "mature" podlings or freshly graduated
projects would be a good call as mentors this should be ONE way to go.

    I really think that we have long precedent to do most of what we need to do already in
    I’m -1 on this proposal. I think it is a bad idea. It is so bad that I would seriously
think about volunteering here less.
    Just think about how many VOTEs we would need to do when a Podling comes in. Think about
all the pro forma votes and discussions about people. BORING!
    Frankly, I’m quite surprised that this is even being proposed.
