From Robert Burrell Donkin <rdon...@apache.org>
Subject [VOTE] RAT Ready To Graduate As Apache Creadur Top Level Project
Date Sun, 26 Feb 2012 16:03:06 GMT
The graduation guide[1] recommends that the Rat community demonstrates 
it's willingness to govern itself through a free VOTE before asking the 
IPMC to approve graduation. So, here it is :-)

See [2] for a draft of the charter, excluding the list of initial 
committers. Unless anyone jumps into this thread, I'll assume that the 
current list of committers would be fine. Please read, review and jump 
in - but this is a vote on the principle of graduating now.

This VOTE is open to all, and I'll tally this no early than Wednesday, 
29 Feb 2012 17:00 UTC.

Robert
