+1, TLP time. Glad you beat me to starting the thread.

Things to decide on:

1. VP, chair <=== eyes and ears of the board.

TLP resolution:

1. Include all PPMC? (my suggestion, yes)
2. Draft of TLP resolution

Process works like this:

1. Discuss the above on this thread
2. VOTE (community) here on asterixdb.i.a.o, leave open for at least
72 hours.
3. VOTE (incubator) on general@i.a.o, leave open for at least 72 hours

If 3 is successful then paste into the board meeting template for the
April 2016 meeting and fingers crossed there :)

Subject: [DISCUSS] Graduation from the incubator

>AsterixDB started incubating a little more than a year ago (2015-02-28).
>Since then we have shipped 2 incubating Apache releases for AsterixDB
>and Hyracks:
>- Apache AsterixDB 0.8.7-incubating (2015-10-22) and Hyracks
>0.2.16-incubating (2015-09-22)
>- Apache AsterixDB 0.8.8-incubating (2016-02-26) and Hyracks
>0.2.17-incubating (2016-02-26)
>The 0.8.7 release provided licensing information for the source

>(2016-01-16) have both been added as committers since incubation began.
