Subject [VOTE] Graduation of the Whirr Podling
Date Thu, 04 Aug 2011 05:56:22 GMT
Hi everyone,

The Whirr podling joined the incubator in May 2010. Since then it has
made 5 releases following Apache guidelines, added 4 new committers,
and added 3 new PPMC members. The community is healthy and growing,
and we've shown an ability to self-govern using accepted Apache
practices.

The Whirr podling has now voted to graduate:

Vote: http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/incubator-whirr-dev/201107.mbox/%3CCABqR8u_+mK8W_z-4vU-+9MWg+c+r4c1kMUhXA1dRMuLujNUJrA@mail.gmail.com%3E
Result: http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/incubator-whirr-dev/201107.mbox/%3CCABqR8u8NtTkqXJERp-TxNn4JLJRVqyRsrqxuESjiYq2Td53TSg@mail.gmail.com%3E

The vote received 7 PPMC approvals, of which 3 were also IPMC members
(Patrick Hunt, Doug Cutting, and myself).

I would like to ask the IPMC to approve the graduation.

[  ] +1 - I approve of the Whirr graduation
[  ] +0 - I have no opinion
[  ] -1 - There's an issue with graduation at this time, which is....

Voting will be open for 72 hours. Please find the proposed board
resolution below.

Thanks
Tom
