Subject Re: [DISCUSS] [PROPOSAL] Singa for Apache Incubator
Date Fri, 27 Feb 2015 15:03:17 GMT
Thanks for your inputs Henry.
I did send personal emails to two folks (outside of Hortonworks) who
seemed to be interested in the project, but that didn't help.  I have
also been soliciting more mentors in this thread as well. I will try
reaching out to folks who are in the intersection of incubator and
mahout (or spark-ml) to see if they might be interested (hopefully
people working on related projects are more likely to join in).
Any other suggestions for soliciting more diverse set of mentors are
also welcome.

Regarding the diversity of initial set of committers, growing that
should be easier once the project is an apache incubator project.  I
see a strong desire to grow the community in the people who are
currently working on the project.
