Hi Greg,

For Shiro, we copied a referenced charter from the Incubator site listed here:

http://incubator.apache.org/guides/graduation.html#tlp-resolution

That section references a template and 3 projects from the 2006 Board
minutes.  I don't remember the template link being there at the time
(maybe it was and I just missed it), so I think we used the OFBiz
referenced charter as our template.  I can't be sure if it was that,
the Cayenne charter, or the actual template.  But at least you know
the potential 3 sources!

In retrospect, a minor recommendation I'd have for the Incubator is
that section is cleaned up to make the desired template very prominent
and not listed as in-line text in a paragraph, and instead make the 3
example charters in-line text.  People's eyes are naturally drawn to
bulleted lists and will place more 'weight' on them than inline text.
Also, those 3 examples are stated as "good examples", so I inferred
that the the Incubator implicitly approved them to be used as
potential seeds for other projects (right or wrong as that may have
been).  My .02...

Cheers,

Les

P.S. Congrats to Thrift!
