By the way, if we’re doing this “the Apache way”, it’s important that contributors speak up, even if they agree. It’s quite common to see people reply simply ‘+1’ on email threads, meaning “That sounds fine to me.” 

If we don’t see consensus being created on the email list everyone will naturally assume that the decisions are being made off-list, and that’s what we’re trying to get away from.

(Maven central scrutinizes the first release, but when we have published one release, making any future releases in the org.olap4j domain is simply a matter of pressing “release” in their sontatype nexus instance.)

The day-to-day job of committers is to provide timely responses to pull requests, and commit them when they are ready. If we do that, I think we will attract more pull requests and generate more activity. I can give you guys rights to commit to the repository.
