[Framework-Team] Re: Plone 2009: Going from here

By my reading, here is the list of those willing to participate in a
Plone 4 framework team:

Raphael R.
Ross P.
Matthew W.
David G.
Calvin H.P.
Alec M.
Erik R,
Laurence R.

That's eight names, and an excellent set of skills for a release
that's not likely to emphasize UI work.

If you'd like your name added, or removed, please put in a message soon.

Ideally, a framework team should have an odd number of members in
order to avoid tie votes. However, in watching the last couple of
voting sessions for Plone 3, I noticed that there were not that many
PLIPS on which every person voted. So, I think the 'odd number' rule
of thumb isn't really that important.

The first matter of business for a new Framework Team is to nominate a
Release Manager to the board. My impression is that Eric Steele has
been accepted by acclamation. If anyone would like to have a private
framework team discussion on that, please let me know in an e-mail,
and we'll get a list organized to allow non-public discussion.

Thanks all! Steve
