    Comments: Good work on the first release.
              dev@ list traffic is a lot easier to follow
              now notifications have moved to a separate
              list
              I'm still struggling with the volume of
              notifications. It is getting easier as I
              become more familiar with the project but I do
              worry that newcomers to the project will find
              it difficult to follow.

     Comments: Activity levels remain very high. I am struggling to follow day
               to day activity. notifications@ has helped a little. The particular
               challenges for me are:
               - no threading of github issue / pr mail makes it hard to follow
                 individual issues
               - users having different ASF and GitHub user names makes to hard to
                 follow who is a committer and who is not
