Thanks, this is great! (although I didn't know one could alter ones vote ;-) )

We (Markus and I) prefer keeping track of committers in a Wiki page. It
allows for easy updates and maintenance of the accepted (and active)
committers, while being more open to a broader public.  Therefore I
heeded your advice and created a wiki page [1] which will be filled with
acceptance links, after we've written the email to deegree-devel (no one
could accept yet, hence the red crosses).

Thanks again, yes the incubation process is a lot of work, but I think
the project will benefit from it.

With kind regards,
