Subject [VOTE] Abdera Graduation to TLP
Date Thu, 13 Nov 2008 13:59:05 GMT
After some brief discussion here and a vote on the Abdera private
list, it seems everyone is in favor of this, so I'd like to propose
that we ask the board to make Abdera a new TLP.  It's been quite the
long incubation process (started in May 2006!), but I think the Abdera
community, while small, is now diverse enough that I have no question
as to its ability to survive as its own Apache project.

So please vote away.  A +1 vote is for sending the following motion to
the board for its approval.
