But it's hard to start something and push it out there.Hi Tom - Related to this thread, this blog post about Qt's developer hierarchy might be interesting. GNU Radio isn't nearly as huge as Qt, but maybe it could benefit from a similar hierarchy -- which is already in place to some degree, but maybe having such a post or wiki page would help solidify it. - MLD

Last week, in my blog on the Maturity Level List and in the previous week’s Maturity Levels, I left some indications of what would be expected of a maintainer of a portion of the Qt codebase. In this blog I’d like to explain a bit more what’s expected of people working via the Qt Open Governance, what roles will exist and what responsibilities will each have.
In short, there will be three levels only:
The presence of a “Chief Maintainer” is not exactly a fourth level. More on that below.
Thanks, Michael, that's really useful; it'll definitely give me something to think over, but initially, I like the idea of different people having approval say over some component (like Josh and anything GRC or Achilleas and gr-trellis [if he'd want to]), which would ease the burden on me to make sure everything is good.
BTW: I just updated my master branch on my github account. I'll try to remember to keep it up.
