Hi Mani, all,

I think I see your underlying intent here, but we might want to be 
careful with this kind of statement. Not everyone who wants to get 
involved with the group will also want to evangelise (at least not 
initially), and we should be wary of scaring people away, especially 
current committers who may be happy to remain out of public view.

I did have to smile when I initially read your email, as I know you've 
mentioned on many occasions that you personally don't like being called 
an evangelist (although we all know you are a great OpenJDK evangelist!) ;-)

Best wishes,
