Subject Re: [VOTE]: Apache Weex-incubating Release 0.12.0-RC3
Date Fri, 05 May 2017 00:43:12 GMT

I understand and appreciate your passion, but would respectfully ask that you step down your
tone a little bit. Craig and John have both taken time to review the release candidate (which
you should be appreciative of -- getting IPMC members to review a release can be difficult).
In my opinion their reviews bring up some valid points that need to be considered.

Weex, by its nature, has a complicated codebase with respect to licensing and building from
source. It is a far cry from a java project with a Pom and a a "src" directory. It pulls in
a lot of different code that needs to be considered and evaluated. Going forward the (P)PMC
will need to understand that and as a TLP will need to be able to address issues accordingly.

What may seem like "Incubator hazing" right now, I would argue, is an exercise in making sure
the podling has what it takes to operate as a fully functional TLP. No two podlings are the
same, and some face certain burdens that others do not.

For now can we try to turn the thread toward a more constructive path that benefits both the
podling and the Incubator?

For what it's worth, I agree with some (not all) of the objections that have been raised.
So I would be a -1 as well.
