    • There were also good discussions around code formatting setups to make working on the various codebases within ActiveMQ more consistent and easier to pull ideas and code back and forth

  • Back in the April report, one PMC member voiced the following concern:
    "At least one member of the PMC, as well as several members of the community, feels strongly that disagreements and concerns are not getting addressed in a manner that will move the community toward consensus.
    • While this comment is true, the community member who was raising these concerns has gone silent
  • Initiated discussion to address past issues from some community members as instructed by the board
    • Result so far is zero replies
  • No labels


  1. The PMC member has gone silent?

  2. I made that comment.  And I'm anything but silent.
