We received a whopping 65 requests to be on the initial committers list for the proposal to become a Podling in the Apache Incubator! It is great to see such enthusiasm from the community.
We are discussing with Apache experts as to how many folks we can put on the list. I think it will be at least 24. Initial committers also form the Podling’s Project Management Committee and can vote in other committers who establish a track record by submitting patches that get accepted. I am not looking forward to having to deny so many of these requests. Once we pick a number, I will send each of you an email of whether your request was accepted or denied.
If you requested to be a committer and are not chosen to be on the initial list, please continue to show your support by contributing patches via the JIRA bug base that will be set up. That way you can be promoted to committer as soon as possible.
Thank you to all who requested to be a committer. I look forward to working with you on Flex.
