Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Etch
Date Fri, 01 Aug 2008 17:22:46 GMT
Well, personally I have been heavily involved in or have written outright
the build system, compiler interface, and ant plug-in. I am currently
working on a maven mojo and as well as a python binding that has full parity
with the Java and C# bindings. I am a Manager at Cisco, but I am Developer
with Etch.

When we were discussing amongst ourselves who to include in the proposal, we
tried to apply the same criteria regarding merit that we would need to apply
if we were already an apache project.

All of the folks on the list are folks that have been consistently active in
Etch development over the last several months, myself included. It does not
by any means include everyone who has ever touched Etch.

The only small exception to that is Shawn, who was a contributor up until
July of this year when he actually left Cisco. He still has merit with the
team, but has not made any contributions to the codebase since leaving. This
is not for a lack of interest, as the code base has only just recently been
released as open source. :-)

Btw .. I just realized I had shawn's new email in the proposal but not the
fact he was no longer with Cisco... I corrected the proposal.
