Subject [VOTE] Graduate ODE to a Top Level Project
Date Mon, 09 Jul 2007 19:33:40 GMT
Hi all,

This is a vote to recommend Apache ODE for graduation as a top level project
to the Apache Board.

Since the first days of our graduation we believe we've demonstrated our
ability to build a community and grow it in an open and respectful manner,
hopefully in a true Apache way. We've resolved the conflicts created before
our incubation around two different donated code bases. We've since then
continued the development of the project and have grown a community of
supporting users. We've recently built an incubator release and attracted a
new committer. Finally, the formation of our PPMC has been a bit tardy but
all the individuals composing it have demonstrated their ability to take
decisions and organize the project in a positive way as part of our
development community. For all these reasons we believe we're ready for

The incubator checklist for ODE can be found here:

Please vote for the board resolution reproduced at the end of this e-mail.
Note that this resolution is the result of a consensus in the ODE community.

The vote will end in 72 hours, Thursday 12-July-2007.
