Hello Brian,

Hope your doing well.

In case your not monitoring the Apache VCL mailing lists. We are in
the process of applying for graduation to a Top-Level Apache project.

As part of the process, we as a community are identifying the list of
committers that will move forward when we graduate. Many of the
initial project committers listed on the incubator project status page
will not be moving, since they have not contributed.

You had contributed work early on in the project, with your last
contribution in 2009. This puts you in a position where it is not
clear if you would like to continue to participate in the project.

Let us know your intentions. Do you plan to become more active in the
community to retain your committer level access or should we assume
you are not interested in the continuing with the project?

Either way we would welcome you or wish you the best on your endeavors.

Best Regards,

It would be good to list all current "committers" who aren't on this
list. From a quick scan, it looks like bmbouter made some commits in
2009 and isn't included. Which is OK. But from my experience, best to
be explicit on these matters, and discuss the criteria used to
determine the list. Make sure you're including documentation
contributions and mailing list discussions etc.

Alan said he'd follow the project to help insure a smooth graduation.
So, I'd add him. You can leave me on the list, also.

No. Don't change status file. Technically, that would require a vote…

I"m happy with the choice of the community.

I'll look at details of the text later… May be next week...
