Subject [CONCLUSION] [NOMINATION REQUEST] Next Chair of AOO Project Management Committee
Date Thu, 15 Sep 2016 14:56:45 GMT
The [NOMINATION REQUEST] period has ended.

There is only one nomination for the Next Chair.  There has been adequate discussion on the
Project Management Committee already.  I will be initiating a [VOTE] on the project's recommendation
of Marcus Lange to the ASF Board at once.  That message will describe the procedure.

 - Dennis
