RE: [] PMC Approval Lag?

Hi all,

Thanks for adding this topic to our next week's agenda... 
Looks like it's going to be an exciting meeting.

Worth a try, but from my personal experience trying to
get the Tools PMC do _anything_ I am not too optimistic.
It's unfortunate, but today's reality resembles what
Doug S described.

It would be a great proof of the AC's usefulness if we
could come up with a solution that works in practice,
whatever it might look like.

Refactoring projects into containers of technology that 
are more related to each other seems like a good idea to 
me, since it would automatically make PMC participation 
more interesting for the projects. But I'm not sure 
whether that will be enough of an incentive for 
sponsoring companies to actually step up and invest 
time into running the PMC.

This is our 'Eclipse Incubator' :)

As the AC, we can merely suggest... :)

So - two items for the next AC meeting, perhaps:
  1)  That the Tools PMC look to expansion and staffing from more of its
       contained projects;
  2)  That the Technology PMC take steps to help mature Technology
       contained projects to move out from under the Technology umbrella.
