Subject Steps to graduation
Date Tue, 13 Nov 2012 15:56:04 GMT
Hi Folks,

As most of you are aware, Apache Flex is still in ³podling² status and not
yet a full-fledged project at Apache.  Our wonderful mentors believe we are
ready to ³graduate² to a top-level project.  In order to do so, we have to
execute several steps, two of which are:

A) prepare a charter.  It looks like a template
with only two substitutions.  Below is a draft with:
${PROJECT} = "Flex"
${DESCRIPTION-AND-SCOPE} = "development of expressive web applications that
deploy to all major browsers, desktops and devices (including smartphones,
tablets and tv)"

Note that this is slightly different from what is currently on our web page
because, when we try to target HTML/CSS/JS, I don't want to make how
"consistent" the result will be a primary success factor.

B) We have to choose a chair.  I am willing to be the chair unless someone
else really wants to do it.

-Alex
