Subject Re: ASF Board Report for Lucene.Net - Repeated Reminder for May 2018
Date Tue, 15 May 2018 00:00:44 GMT
If there are any PMC members who can writeup something for the board
report - due now - it's better than nothing.

The alternative soon, unless the PMC can show some plans for oversight,
will be to have a discussion about going to the Attic.  As Phil notes
below, please reach out to board@ (a private list) if PMC members or
committers need other organizational help.
