Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Apache Distributed Release Audit Tool (DRAT)
Date Thu, 10 Aug 2017 11:46:54 GMT
(note mixed private/public lists)

General questions, since... we haven't actually had any discussion yet.

- Is there a particular hurry to bring this to pTLP faster than the
traditional general@incubator discussion period is?

- Has the Apache Creadur project been consulted about the new project
proposal, and in particular do they have any comments on using DRAT as
the name, which subsumes their popular Rat name?

- It's awesome to see ™ included in a proposal (most people forget), but
they're mixed up.  Apache should be ® (when needed; when talking about
individual project names it's usually not needed) and most project names
should be ™.  So it would be either Apache® Rat™ or Apache Rat™.

Thanks for filling out the rest of the proposal.

- Shane

an account for them after the fact. Is this the desire? If so I will update the resolution
and we can VOTE them in as PMC after the project is establish should the Board agree to do
