Subject [doc] podling software releases
Date Thu, 09 Feb 2006 04:00:09 GMT
This is a follow up on 
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INCUBATOR-14, which I opened to 
track this doc topic.

I'd like to clarify the "Releases" section in 
http://incubator.apache.org/incubation/Incubation_Policy.html (I'll also 
add a table of contents to the top of that page to make it easier to 
navigate).

(1) What's the "Charter" referred to in this section?

There are two "Reference to Charter" sentences:

"Such approval SHALL be given only after the Incubator PMC has followed 
the process detailed in (Reference to Charter)"

"Should the Incubator PMC, in accordance with (Reference to Charter) 
vote to approve the request,"

What document comprises the official Charter?

(2) Process details

I'd like to modify this sentence:

"Therefore, should a Podling decide it wishes to perform a release, the 
Podling SHALL formally request the Incubator PMC approve such a release."

And incorporate specific details from 
http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/incubator-general/200601.mbox/%3cC5C127EF-E3AB-4D72-A0B8-54FB51923A05@gbiv.com%3e

:

"Therefore, should a Podling decide it wishes to perform a release, the 
Podling SHALL hold a vote on the Podling -dev list. If the majority of 
all votes is positive, then send a summary of that vote to 
general@incubator and formally request the Incubator PMC approve such a 
release. Three +1 Incubator PMC votes are required."


Is this correct and adequate?

thanks,

  -jean
