RE: PMC Nomination - Paulo Gaspar

2002-02-07 Thread Paulo Gaspar

Ok, now that I understand better how a PMC nomination works,
it looks like I have to say something about me besides just
saying that I accept - which I do.

I work on software development for almost 15 years and I 
only started using Apache software less than 2 years ago. I
got addicted very fast.

As many of you probably noticed, I do not believe on quietly
accepting the facts. I also believe on defending my 
interests without hurting others and I often spend too much
effort defending what I consider fair.

And I do it for selfish reasons - I am depending on loads of
Jakarta software and I do not believe the Jakarta Project 
will survive unless we all win something.


Have fun,
Paulo Gaspar

 After some thinking, I'm going to accept the nomination, even
 if I don't quite believe jakarta needs 'management', 'committee' or
 any other function besides 'jakarta commiter'.

Lol. Sellout !

Who I am: I am a developer with 10 years of experience.  I got my first
taste of Open Source Software with JServ 0.9, and helped (albeit very
little) with Jserv as a lurker/non-committer.  I use/have used Apache
products everyday in my development of various projects.  My current focus
is on building the Commons community to have a large library of reusable
components for my own development work.  I am also working on a proposal
for the re-birth of Alexandria, and have some thoughts on how to make
James an 'Exchange Killer'.  I am not being paid to work at jakarta, and I
am happy to help build the community.

What I want to accomplish: Jon, Sam, and Stefano are my open source
'idols'.  I respect what each of them have done for Jakarta and Apache as
a whole.  I would like to follow in the gigantic footsteps of Sam in
helping to increase inter-project communication and cooperation.  This can
only help to increase the Apache community in general, and the Jakarta
community specifically.  I would also like to continue Sam's work in the
cooperation with the xml.apache.org community.  Part of the community
building is having some way of finding code within Apache.

I look forward to helping improve the jakarta community,

Craig McClanahan (accepted)

Craig works on a lot more projects than I do (than _most_ people do), so I
cannot give a complete rundown of his accomplishments.  I can say,
however, that his excellent and informed contributions to Commons, to
Taglibs, and to numerous mailing lists prove his value to the community.

You can find out more about me on the Struts Who We Are page:

  http://jakarta.apache.org/struts/userGuide/volunteers.html

At Apache, I got involved in the Apache JServ project before there was a
Jakarta (along with other long timers like Jon, Pier, and Stefano), and at
the ApacheCon just after the Tomcat source code was finally handed over to
Apache, told James Duncan Davidson in front of several hundred people that
the Sun code sucked ;-). (Want proof?  Just go back to the sources for
Tomcat 3.0, but don't do this on a full stomach ;-).

Over the last couple of years, I've been a big-time contributor on Tomcat
(Catalina's architecture is basically what Apache JServ 2.0 was going to
be), Struts (I'm the primary architect), and Commons.  Along the way, I've
been somewhat less involved with Taglibs and Watchdog.  I'm also a pretty
good chunk of Apache's user support on the TOMCAT-USER list.

I believe in Apache's goals w.r.t. open sourcing Java.  I don't have a lot
of patience for diatribes and mailing list flame fests -- they tend to be
counterproductive to these goals.  Therefore, you'll see more CVS commits
than discussion participation from me when the topic strays in those
directions.  (Interestingly, the overall level of CVS commits seems to be
inversely proportional to the vitriol in the current discussions ...)

One last note -- as most of you are probably aware, I work for Sun.  If
that fact, by itself, affects your vote, then you need to think about how
much you really believe in Apache's credo that contributors should be
judged on what they do, not who they work for.  (I'm sure you can find
plenty of other reasons not to vote for me, if that's what you want ;-).

Jakarta PMC Nomination Acceptance

2002-02-07 Thread Geir Magnusson Jr.

Sorry about the delay.

I accept the nomination for re-election to the PMC.  I have several basic
beliefs related to the subject of jakarta governance :

 o That Java as a platform is facing some challenges, and that open source
practitioners, especially the Jakarta project, can help play a big role in
making Java a more open, and therefore stronger platform.

o The Jakarta sub-projects should be in charge of their destiny, able to
self-govern according to the dictates of the  sub-project community with
minimal constraints, such as those imposed by the Apache Software
Foundation's licensing and rules on IP, and the traditions of meritocracy
encoded in the Jakarta guidelines.

o That the Jakarta project is strongest when there is a clear scope and an
active community of like-minded individuals.  We are a large project and
must carefully manage our growth as we go forward.

In simple terms, a collection of strong states with a weak central
government to provide for common defense.

I am an EE and physicist by training, and have been a semi- and professional
programmer for about 15 years.  My work has been in the domains of digital
audio processing, image processing, Monte Carlo simulation of physical
systems, 'real-time' financial market data delivery, and lately Java server
infrastructure and applications, with a particular bent towards templating.

I am relatively new to Apache and Jakarta, but have been a longtime fan of
open source as a user. My major contributions to Jakarta are in the Velocity
project, having joined the project just after inception.  (Come take a look
at our latest - Velocity-Struts integration and DVSL, another kind of XML
transformation tool).  Since then, I helped establish the Commons project,
and have made minor contributions to one or two components.  Recently, my
major contributions to Commons seem to be non-cvs-related mail list traffic.
I don't expect many votes from there... :)  I am also a very inactive
committer in one of the turbine sub-projects, stratum.

And I don't work for anyone at the moment :)
