No concerns, we will continue to invest in this project as it is important
to our product, and expanding the community with more diversities is on our
top of the priority

I think my previous response is not right, what I meant is:

*"The initial committers are from several relevant Apache projects who are
interested in YuniKorn and committed to giving guidance, suggestions to the
project, help to grow the community; and if possible, participants in code

They're aware of the PPMC requirements, I don't think there's any surprise
to proposed initial committers.

We have already got SGA (Software Grant Agreement) from Cloudera, I'm not
sure if we need to attach the SGA now, before vote or so. Is there any
additional documentation needed apart from SGA.
