Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Apache Tika as TLP

Hi Jukka,

Thanks for your feedback! I would be honored to be the PMC chair (if no one
objects in the community). I'm also +1 for your proposal to include the
current committer set on the PMC, and to come up with our own lower entry
barriers for committership.

I'll work on the Board Resolution this evening and try and get something
posted for a DISCUSS thread by tomorrow...
