Subject Re: [VOTE] Gora Graduation Resolution
Date Sun, 18 Dec 2011 02:16:46 GMT
I think the Board might have an issue with the 'purpose' of the
project (I would if I was in the Board). The formulation

" a Project Management Committee charged with the creation and
maintenance of open-source software related to persistence, storage,
and retrieval middleware for relational and NoSQL databases"

is very vague and encompassing. When read, it could mean anything. I
recommend a more narrow definition, or risk the Board to reject it.
Also the STATUS page says that Gora is an ORM for column-stores. So,
one would ask why has that expanded here.
