Here's a draft board resolution (not a vote, just discussion). It lists all current committers (except as noted in the next paragraph) as the initial members of the project management committee (PMC) and myself as the initial chair.
Notice that I have left Andrew off the PMC as he has not been active with the project for over two years. I believe we should continue to include him on the committer roles subsequent to moving to tlp, however as he has not been an active member of the community for such a long period we would not include him on the PMC at this time. If others feel differently let me know, I'm willing to include him if the people feel differently. LMK if this looks good to you and I'll call for an official vote on this list (then we'll be ready to call a vote on the hadoop pmc). Regards, Patrick ------------ X.
