Fair enough. Are there any concerns along those lines given it still the same core set of
developers that will be working on it?

The if possible concerns me. Are these people committed to being PPMC members or not? All
initial commutes are PPMC members not just committers.

Do people on the initial committer list realise their responsibilities also include:
- voting on releases
- helping with board reports
- understand and applying ASF policies and values
- helping to grow the community
- voting on new committers and PPMC members

I not aware of the discussions that took place before this proposal come to the Incubator
so everyone may already be aware and willing to do that.
However, if that’s not the case, it may be better to vote them in as committers/PPMC members
once they make contributions to the project.

Great sounds good. Have you checked with Cloudera legal that they would be willing to hand
the name over to the ASF?

We recently has a situation where a podling was unable to use it name a few months into incubation
because of this and it caused Infra a lot of unnecessary work.
