Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Graduate Apache Hudi (Incubating) as a TLP
Date Tue, 12 May 2020 14:46:30 GMT
Hi Justin,

Thanks, as always, for the great feedback!

On the PMC, the folks listed fall into at-least one of the following categories

 - Actively (multiple times a week) taking part in the project. All our newly added PMCs through
graduation and majority of original PPMC are currently in this category
 - Mentors who have helped significantly through the incubation process, teaching us the Apache
 - Members of the original PPMC, who may not be very active now, but chose to stay on. These
were early adopters/champions for the project. Like you mentioned, the rationale is to allow
them the chance to become active again (at-least 1 PMC member cited this specific reason to
stay on, On the flip side, we do have 1 PPMC member, 1 inactive mentor  who chose to step
down and are not part of this list).

On the issue of the "person who has been recently added", if this is a mentor, we needed additional
mentors, we began a VOTE, but did not follow through, since one of the other mentors suggested
apache processes did not require it. Happy to follow up on private@, if thats deemed more

On the committers, 

 - Of the top 15 contributors [1], 10 of them are already committers. (Not to say this is
the only metric). We have a well-documented criteria [2] 
 - We are and will be glad to offer committership to strong contributors. PPMC sends out appreciation
emails to such contributors showing strong trajectory and we have such a healthy pipeline
working towards committership.

We will get the logos/download page link fixed.

On the 3rd party branding issues cited, both of them are pre-incubation references to the
project when hosted on Uber's github account. One of them is a Spark summit talk delivered
by 2 current PMC members (incl me) and looks like a 3rd party writing
a tech summary on the then Uber OSS project.  Since then, Uber has done due process to transfer
ownership to the ASF (blog here [3]). Since we incubated, we have consistently used Apache
branding in any/all external materials. Please let us know if we are missing something.
