Subject [VOTE] Graduate Apache Groovy from the incubator
Date Mon, 12 Oct 2015 09:43:14 GMT
Hi all,

Following-up the graduation proposal in a thread [1] from our mentor
Emmanuel L├ęcharny, I would like to launch today a vote for that
purpose: let Apache Groovy graduate!

For reference, here are our recent monthly [1] and quarterly [2] reports

The last two quarterly status reports [1] and [2] our mentors have
recommended that Groovy is ready to graduate from the incubator.

This is therefore a call for vote to graduate the Groovy podling from Apache
Incubator.  The proposed board resolution is below (also at [3]); the
proposed chair for the graduated project is based on the proposal in [4].

Please cast your votes:

[  ] +1 Graduate Groovy podling from Apache Incubator
[  ] +0 Indifferent to the graduation status of Groovy podling
[  ] -1 Reject graduation of Groovy podling from Apache Incubator,

This vote will be open until next Sunday evening (156 hours, [5]).

Dan Haywood
