-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 The following discussion was started by Matt Hogstrom (one of our mentors) on the vcl-private list (list for PPMC members) about the possibility of VCL graduating to a top level project. We decided the discussion should really take place on this list instead. I've somewhat reformatted it to have it all included and a little easier to read. In the thread, there is reference to a previous discussion that took place on the vcl-private list (that could have been moved to this list as well) about removing people from the initial committers list that had not contributed any code or documentation.
