Subject Re: Concerning Sentry: A disagreement over the Apache Way and graduation
Date Mon, 02 Nov 2015 20:57:48 GMT
I see this (the release discussion threads you linked) as a semi-mature
community that's well aligned. A number of folks responded to the request
for discussion and said they were in favor. It was done on the ML in the
open. What more do we want? I don't see anyone excluded and I'm sure if
there was a new person looking to get involved they would have been
welcomed into the discussion, no one is being turned away from what I can
