Subject Proposed resolution for Gump as TLP
Date Tue, 10 Feb 2004 05:37:35 GMT
The Gump development community has voted unanimously to ask for top  
level project status, as previously mentioned to the board and has came  
up with a proposal for a resolution for the board to pass in the next  
upcoming board meeting.

The interesting parts are:

  1) Steven Bodewig has been nominated as chair and he accepted the  
position
  2) the PMC list was self nominated, everybody who asked for it got in  
the list
  3) the Gump community decided to propose its own charter as:

        responsible for the creation and maintenance of software related
        to promotion and facilitation of automated integration of the  
software
        produced by other projects, based on software licensed to the  
Foundation

My personal impression is that the community is very healthy, diverse  
and very willing to exit the java-only status where it was born,  
especially with Gumpy (the python rewrite). Evidence of this is the  
continous flow of commits from many different committers as well as the  
prompt and smooth actions that resulted in this proposal and to the  
nomination of the chair and PMC list.

Please allow me to say that after experiencing the Jakarta PMC chair  
election, this has been a wonderfully refreshing thing and showed me,  
once more, that container projects don't work.

Also understand that nothing in this proposal is carved in stone and,  
if necessary, the community is more than willing to listen to  
comments/suggesions or answer further questions that the board might  
have.

Thanks much for you time.
