Subject [VOTE] Pig to become a TLP
Date Mon, 23 Aug 2010 17:38:12 GMT
I propose that Pig become a top level Apache project.

The Pig development community has already voted on and approved this  
proposal.  In summary, the community voted that all current active  
committers (listed at http://hadoop.apache.org/pig/whoweare.html ) as  
of August 18 2010 should become PMC members, and that Olga Natkovich  
should be the PMC chair.  They also agreed that adopting bylaws should  
be among the first tasks of the new PMC.  Full details of the vote can  
be seen at http://bit.ly/c3GDyl

Please vote on sending this proposal to the Apache Board.

Below is a draft resolution to be sent to the Apache Board:
