Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Apache Distributed Release Audit Tool (DRAT)
Date Thu, 10 Aug 2017 05:59:44 GMT
Hi Everyone,

Just as an FYI I've added a resolution to establish DRAT to the agenda.

On item - 2 of the proposed PMC includes members without an Apache account. What to do in
this situation? If they start only as committers, that's fine, but then we would create 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 so.
