That a good idea. One of the things that may need to change is to move conversation off that
private slack channel and into the open once you start incubating.

I’d strongly suggest you add more people to that initial list, there’s a chance the proposal
may not be accepted by the IPMC because of that, but I’d like to hear what other IPMC members
think about that before deciding.

Just because people have a commit bit doesn’t mean they have to commit code, you can apply
social rules rather than technological ones, but a RTC (review then commit) workflow process
(rather than CTR) is also likely to help here.

Thanks for that link. I noticed one other thing in there that NuttX name is trademarked. Is
the project willing too hand over that trademark to the ASF?
