Subject RE: [PROPOSAL] MetaModel join the Apache Incubator

I'll update the wiki page then, and add Sameer as an "initial committer" since he is already
working (to my understanding) on a HBase module contribution. I'll remove Willem Cazander
for the moment since I think he's too busy right now to be a real initial committer.

And great news that you want to mentor this. That's very good, thank you.

Subject: Re: [PROPOSAL] MetaModel join the Apache Incubator

Hi Kasper,

One suggestion is to remove the "Contributors with known interest if
project is accepted in Incubator" section and only add contributors that
really want to get the project going.

I could see this could be very useful for projects like Apache Gora or
pluggable query component for Apache Drill.

I would like to volunteer to become mentor and initial committer for this
project to get it rolling.
