Subject [ANN] Cayenne Becomes a Top Level Apache Project
Date Fri, 05 Jan 2007 13:10:10 GMT
/A bit of a late announcement and old news to cayenne-dev  
subscribers, but here is goes..../

I am glad to announce that during its December meeting, Apache Board  
accepted a resolution officially establishing Cayenne as a top level  
Apache project. This is great (if not unexpected) news for us. ASF is  
built on principles of meritocracy, inclusiveness and self-governance  
- same principles that we were following along the road. I am  
delighted to see ASF as a permanent home for Cayenne (and I am sure I  
am not alone in that feeling).

When we decided to dive into the incubation process, we had a vague  
idea that joining ASF would be good for growing Cayenne community.  
What I came to realize now is that the Apache brand is not the only  
reason why this happens. The other important factor, collaboration  
within the foundation, is real. We are now a part of a much bigger  
open source club where new ideas will have a much better chance of  
finding a receptive audience. It is up to us now to participate and  
take advantage of that.

I'd like to thank the Incubator community and especially our mentors  
(Jean, Jim, Bill and Brian) for helping us with accommodation at the  
ASF. And also pat ourselves (Cayenne committers) on the back - we've  
done a huge amount of work to make the graduation happen.

Finally, a note about immediate Cayenne plans:

* We will be migrating the site and the mailing lists to the new  
locations.
* We are working on the site facelift.
* 2.0.2 (and 1.2.2) releases are almost ready to go.
* The first 3.0 milestone (alpha) will follow immediately after that.

Cheers,
Andrus
