Subject RE: [PROPOSAL] Apache SocialSite
Date Thu, 09 Apr 2009 03:26:01 GMT
I'm quite interested in this proposal - I think it's a good fit at Apache, and Dave has put
projects through the incubator before.

I'd like to highlight something that's made me a little hesitant about getting involved in
SocialSite earlier, though. As it stands now it's quite large, moderately complex codebase,
with a very, very small community. The commits mailing list shows Dave has been the only committer
active on it since January, and the dev list is also of correspondingly low volume.

In the "Reliance on Salaried Developers" the proposal says "Risk level: moderate. The community
includes members who are paid to work on the code and some who are not." What part of the
system are these paid developers working on?
