Subject Graduation checklist thoughts...
Date Sat, 26 Apr 2008 03:28:47 GMT

Now that I'm pretty much "done" with the tasks on the post graduation 
stuff at:
http://incubator.apache.org/guides/graduation.html
I have a few things to say:

First, THANKS A TON to everyone that had contributed to that.  It's very 
well done and quite complete.   It's obvious that a lot of time, effort, 
and knowledge went into it.   Honestly, my brain is half fried from 
everything I've learned over the last week or so.   Without the list 
there, this could have been a very frustrating period.

That said, I did run into a couple "snags" that probably should be 
addressed on the checklist:

1) The "private" list.  (I haven't completely figured this one out yet)  
CXF already had a private list, but it obviosly includes some folks that 
are not on the new PMC.  For example, a couple of the mentors that did 
not elect to join the new PMC, a few folks that left, etc... I haven't 
tackled how to edit this yet.   One option is just to have 
infrastructure do it as part of the TLP request, but it might be good to 
point the new chair off to the ezlm docs on how to do this.

2) I haven't figured this one out yet either.  Once the mailing lists are 
migrated, confluence should be updated to email to the new commits list 
(providing you had it emailing the old commits list).   I'm a confluence 
admin, but I don't have the experience for this.   Again, this could be 
added to the TLP INFRA jira request or documented for the new Chair.

3) Similarly, the JIRA for the project should be updated to send it's 
notices to the new lists.   The JIRA group should also be updated to 
reflect the proper set of committers.  I did figure this out for CXF, 
but should be documented or added to the TLP request.

In general, I'm the type of person that likes to "learn new things" and 
tackle as many of the smaller tasks myself rather than bothering the 
infrastructure folks with "trivial" tasks.  (the infrastructure folks 
are busy enough as it is)   Thus, I like the "document for the new 
chair" approach, but I do understand not everyone likes that approach 
which is why adding it to the TLP request is not a bad idea.  


Anyway, I just wanted to share that experience.  In general, the list is 
very good and I appreciate the effort that went into it as well as the 
efforts of the infrastructure folks to get everything done in a timely 
manner.  

Thanks!
