Subject Re: [DRAFT] Graduation resolution / IPMC vote email draft for discussion
Date Tue, 12 Mar 2013 14:46:05 GMT
OK, here's the latest draft.  It includes names now,
although we are waiting for a couple of mentors to respond to a 
question around their interest in staying with the project after 
graduation.  It also includes updated committer counts.  Last, it
includes the new project description we discussed.

It still requires the results of our VOTE thread to graduate (notice the
XX strings that need to be replaced).

I'd like folks to review this email / resolution draft one last time...

Comments / questions / concerns welcome!


Apache CloudStack entered the Incubator in April of 2012. We have made
significant progress with the project since moving over to Apache. We have
31 committers and 13 PPMC members listed on our status page at [1], not including 
the 8 mentors that helped guide our community through incubation.  16 of the 
committers and 7 of the PPMC members were added after the podling was
formed. One mentor joined the project after the podling started.  3 of the initial
committers that were not in the initial PPMC have now joined the PPMC. 

6 of our mentors will be remaining with the project as it transitions into a TLP.

We have verified that Apache CloudStack is a suitable name [2], and the
CloudStack marks are being donated from Citrix to the ASF.

We completed two releases (Apache CloudStack 4.0.0-incubating and Apache 
CloudStack 4.0.1-incubating) and are currently preparing for two more (4.0.2 
and 4.1.0).

The community of Apache CloudStack is active, healthy, and growing and has
demonstrated the ability to self-govern using accepted Apache practices.

After holding a discussion [3], the Apache CloudStack community subsequently 
voted overwhelmingly to graduate [4], collecting XXXXX +1 votes (including 
XX from our mentors), and no +0 or -1 votes.

Our community has created a set of bylaws for the project [5].

Please cast your votes:

[ ] +1 Graduate Apache CloudStack from Apache Incubator
[ ] +0 Indifferent to graduation status of Apache CloudStack
[ ] -1 Reject graduation of Apache CloudStack from Apache Incubator because...

We'll run the vote for 72 hours.
