Subject [VOTE] Graduation of Apache Groovy from the incubator
Date Thu, 22 Oct 2015 07:36:55 GMT
Hi all,

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

For reference, here are our recent monthly [2] and quarterly [3] reports
for the latest developments of the project and its community. We’d also
like to thank our mentor Bertrand Delacretaz for setting up and assisting
with Groovy’s initial maturity assessment audit. It indicates that we are
in a good position to graduate [5].

This is therefore a call for vote to graduate the Groovy podling from
Apache Incubator.  The proposed board resolution is below; 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 for 72 hours until next Sunday.

I vote +1 (binding)!


Guillaume Laforge
