Subject [jira] Commented: (INCUBATOR-39) Policy neutral change to improve organisation
Date Tue, 01 Aug 2006 21:03:20 GMT

Robert Burrell Donkin commented on INCUBATOR-39:

an interesting point :-)

there is an argument that the original is correct. the chair of the PMC SHOULD make the request
but may choose not to might forget. a project chair has quite a lot of wriggle room and this
action cannot actually be mandated. it's up to the project to elect a new chair if they don't
like things they do or don't do.

i definitely agree that the paragraph is badly phrased. i think that some like:

'The acceptance process is triggered by an email sent to the incubator general mailing list
by the PMC chair of the Sponsor. This email MUST contain the following information:

would convey the meaning with more precision and less words.
