Hi all!

This email is primarily for the folks who "signed up" to be initial committers 
during the Apache Annotator Proposal process [1] (each of whom are BCC'd on 
this email).

It's possible that some of you forgot you'd added your name to that list, or 
that now (given the life and work and time) you may no longer have an interest 
in participating, or you may have been eagerly awaiting this to happen and 
somehow missed the initial setup of the project. Regardless, we'd love to have 
you join the party! :)

Here's a quick update, and also some links to get setup as one of the core 
contributors to Apache Annotator [2].

First, coding is coming along nicely mostly with thanks going to Randall and 
Gerben [3]. The primary focus has been on repository structure (monorepo), 
initial code structure/planning, and NPM publication planning/setup. If you're 
interested in any of this, please checkout the code repo.

Second, there's a basic promo site (if you've not seen it) at 
http://annotator.apache.org/ We'd like to get the demo integrated [4] and begin 
to provide documentation there as we're able to write it (and would love help 
writing it!). ^_^

Lastly (and this is where our BCC'd friends come in!), we need more initial 
committers active (at least!) on the mailing list. We have folks interested in 
contributing to the code who we can't (yet) add to the project because we lack 
voting members. If you are able and willing (or even just able ;) ), we'd 
greatly appreciate the help and input on the mailing list, even if you lack 
time to code or write docs (etc).

If you're +1 on accepting the role you signed up for as an initial committer, 
please respond (on list!) to this email and begin reading/skimming this guide:


It can be a lot to take in, but I (and our loverly mentors) will be happy to 
help you through the process. :)

Thank you (all!) for reading this email!
