Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Community diversity (again)
Date Thu, 27 Mar 2008 01:30:29 GMT
Another point that needs discussion and more clarification is related
to who should be counted towards diversity of a project. From [1], it
states that a podling need at least 3 legally independent committers,
but from recent comments on the QPid graduation thread [2], it seems
that only PMC members are being considered.
