[OOTB-hive] Status update

There are Alfresco partners who would likely take a hard line on their
employees participating in a community effort like Order of the Bee. I don't
think the order should concern itself with that.
I have assurances from Alfresco management that employees can participate in
the Order so long as it continues around the goals currently defined. (I
described it as "building a healthy open source ecosystem around Alfresco
Community Edition, with independent governance.") If other employers are going
to discourage their employees, I hope that they find it difficult to attract the
most talented Alfresco experts.
Perhaps the order should look at the governance documents for Debian, CentOS,
Apache, or Wildfly in order to define solid principles?
