Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Syncope to Join the Apache Incubator

The word 'justification' occurred nowhere in my email. Nonetheless, I
already apologized for my poor choice of tone. I could see someone
reading my query as calling for a 'resume', but I prefer to think of
it as an 'introduction.'

I will continue to ask proposed podlings to draw a picture of their
mentors' experience, and I will continue to look for ways to remind
proposed mentors that podlings' success will depend, in part, on their
involvement and commitment. Our job in evaluating proposals is to
evaluate whether the minimal necessary ingredients are there. I don't
claim to know exactly what they are, but clearly mentor knowledge and
commitment is in there somewhere. And I may, indeed, vote -1 some day
on a podling proposal if I feel that there is a really severe gap.
Which, of course, won't be a veto, since we don't do these decisions
by consensus, so I wouldn't expect that to be a dramatic gesture
generating a giant cloud of flying fur.

I have learned from this interchange that I need to be much more
careful in phrasing when exploring this area.
