Subject [VOTE] Graduation of the Chemistry Podling
Date Fri, 11 Feb 2011 11:53:17 GMT
Hi All

The Chemistry podling has been in the incubator since early 2009. In the 
last 6 months, the podling has had two sucessful Java releases, and now 
its first sucessful non-Java release too. The community is healthy and 
diverse, has added new committers, and brought in other code bases + their 
communities via the IP clearing process.

Following advice from the mentors, the Chemistry podling has now voted to 
graduate:

The vote has received 12 PPMC approvals, of which 2 were also IPMC 
approvals (Jukka Zitting and myself).

I'd therefore like to ask the IPMC to approve the graduation.
  +1 - I approve of the Chemistry graduation
   0 - I've not had time to look into it, sorry
  -1 - There's an issue with graduation at this time, which is....

Voting will be open for 72 hours. Also, please find the proposed board 
resolution below.

Thanks
Nick
