Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "October2012" by NicolasLalevée
Date Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:33:15 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Incubator Wiki" for change notification.

The "October2012" page has been changed by NicolasLalevée:

- (project add text here)
+ EasyAnt is a build system based on Apache Ant and Apache Ivy.
+ Incubating since 2011-01-31.
+ Since the last report, there were discussion about the graduation process of
+ EasyAnt. There was confusion about what would be its final place - either a TLP
+ or a subproject of the Ant TLP - and the implication about the 'graduation'
+ process.
+ Things have been cleared with a vote: the EasyAnt project members are willing
+ to join the Ant TLP. So there is no actual need for a full classical graduation
+ process.
+ Then a vote happend in the Ant project about accepting EasyAnt as a subproject.
+ It failed, there were some concerns about the activity of the project. There
+ were actually no veto, but an unsufficent number of binding +1.
+ So it has been decided to try again in a few month after showing some nice
+ activity on the EasyAnt project.
+ A little bit later, some Ant PMC members wrote that they were 'unplugged' when
+ the vote happend and were sorry to have missed it. A good sign for a retry of
+ the vote.
+ About the activity of the project since the last report: one committer did
+ some great job making the code base ready to be released. One other committer
+ was active on the dev mailing list. We have also seen some non committers
+ asking questions about the use of the project.
+ The next step for the project:
+  - doing a release: it will show that the EasyAnt committers are dedicated to
+    maintain it and keep it going
+  - shortly after that, ask the Ant PMC again to accept EasyAnt as a subproject
+  - if accepted, EasyAnt could then leave the Incubator.
