things have been quiet but I finally know the reason. The board hasn't approved the creation of the XML Graphics project due to the following concern: They didn't recognize any names on the PMC list.
Jeremias, this is just not plausible. How could they not recognize Jeremias Maerki, Joerg Pietschmann, or Thomas DeWeese? (Or even me? I've had several emails with Dirk and Ted, etc. over the past year.) Please explain further.
I was surprised by this as well. It seems as though all one has to do is look at the FOP-DEV & FOP-USER lists to see Jeremias, Joerg, Glen, Clay, etc. Aside from Thomas DeWeese being the first person listed on the Batik whoAreWe page, his name is all over the mailing list.
If one of the two would like to take the chair position I'd gladly restart a vote on that part.
I'd like Finn Bock to be added to the PMC before we consider adding inactive committers. He's done mountains of work for the project over the past year or so, and it's important that his efforts be properly recognized on this project.
+1 to extend an invitation to Finn Bock to join the XML Graphics PMC
