Subject [RESULT][VOTE] Graduation of Apache Groovy from the incubator
Date Wed, 28 Oct 2015 12:17:08 GMT
Guillaume is busy presenting Groovy talks at JavaOne so he asked me to
summarise the vote results.

I am happy to announce that the PPMC vote to graduate Groovy from the
incubator has passed with 10 binding +1 votes, 2 non-binding +1 votes
and no other votes.

Binding votes: Guillaume Laforge, Cédric Champeau, Paul King, Emmanuel
Lécharny, Bertrand Delacretaz, Andrew Bayer, Jochen Theodorou, Jim
Jagielski, Pascal Schumacher, Konstantin Boudnik
Non-binding votes: Russel Winder, Guillaume Alleon

There was also some minor rewording done for the Graduation Resolution
for the board. The revised version is included below for completeness.

Andrew Bayer and Konstantin Boudnik (two of our mentors) have
indicated their willingness to assist the PMC (at least in our early
stages). I have taken the liberty of adding both your names to the PMC
list but please let us know if you want to keep the arrangement less
formal without official PMC duties - we'd love to have you officially
on-board but we'll fully understand if your existing commitments might
dictate an informal role at this point in time.

Cheers, Paul.
