cross-project collaboration, so as to avoid horizontally-oriented contributors
needing to attend multiple midcycle meetups.
Denying PTG space to a project that clearly requires an immense amount of
cross-project collaboration seems to run counter to those stated goals.
The need for cross-project collaboration seems to me orthogonal to the
diversity of corporate affiliation within any individual project, given
the potential diversity within the other projects they may need to
So the criteria applied should concentrate less on individual project
