  • Doug: more than one vote for committer approval?
It was decided to have informal discussion on PMC mailing list for limited time (such as 24 hours), just stating why +1 was appropriate, or not, then one person to submit formal +1 vote on portal.
Good way to "train" new comers, and keep us all honest and open.
  • State of projects:
Several should be investigated for termination (those with '?'). Volunteers to investigate listed below.
Goal is to report findings and recommendation at next meeting: active committers (if any), last commit of code, activity on mailing list, contact with Project Lead, etc.
