Subject Request for Comments - Apache Jena proposed graduation resolution
Date Wed, 28 Mar 2012 03:30:26 GMT
Hi All

At the recommendation of our mentors the Apache Jena incubator polling is currently working
towards graduation.  We recently passed a community vote to proceed with graduation and held
a PPMC vote to select our chairman upon graduation.

We have also been discussing our board resolution between ourselves and we'd now like to request
feedback from the IPMC to refine this resolution as necessary prior to submitting it for a
formal IPMC vote in the next week or so:

WHEREAS, the Board of Directors deems it to be in the best
       interests of the Foundation and consistent with the
       Foundation's purpose to establish a Project Management
       Committee charged with the creation and maintenance of
       open-source software related to accessing, storing, querying,
       publishing and reasoning with semantic web data while
       adhering to relevant W3C and community standards.

       NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that a Project Management
       Committee (PMC), to be known as the "Apache Jena Project",
       be and hereby is established pursuant to Bylaws of the
       Foundation; and be it further

       RESOLVED, that the Apache Jena Project be and hereby is
       responsible for the creation and maintenance of software
       related to accessing, storing, querying,
       publishing and reasoning with semantic web data while
       adhering to relevant W3C and community standards;
       and be it further

       RESOLVED, that the office of "Vice President, Apache Jena" be
       and hereby is created, the person holding such office to
       serve at the direction of the Board of Directors as the chair
       of the Apache Jena Project, and to have primary responsibility
       for management of the projects within the scope of
       responsibility of the Apache Jena Project; and be it further

       RESOLVED, that the persons listed immediately below be and
       hereby are appointed to serve as the initial members of the
       Apache Jena Project:

         * Andy Seaborne      (andy)
         * Benson Marguilies  (bimargulies)
         * Chris Dollin       (chrisdollin)
         * Damian Steer       (damian)
         * Dave Reynolds      (der)
         * Ian Dickinson      (ijd)
         * Paolo Castagna     (castagna)
         * Rob Vesse          (rvesse)
         * Stephen Allen      (sallen)

       NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that Andy Seaborne
       be appointed to the office of Vice President, Apache Jena, to
       serve in accordance with and subject to the direction of the
       Board of Directors and the Bylaws of the Foundation until
       death, resignation, retirement, removal or disqualification,
       or until a successor is appointed; and be it further

       RESOLVED, that the initial Apache Jena PMC be and hereby is
       tasked with the creation of a set of bylaws intended to
       encourage open development and increased participation in the
       Apache Jena Project; and be it further

       RESOLVED, that the Apache Jena Project be and hereby
       is tasked with the migration and rationalization of the Apache
       Incubator Jena podling; and be it further

       RESOLVED, that all responsibilities pertaining to the Apache
       Incubator Jena podling encumbered upon the Apache Incubator
       Project are hereafter discharged.

The proposed PMC is composed of all current members plus one of our mentors (Benson Marguilies)
who has graciously agreed to remain on the project for the time being.

We look forward to receiving your comments

On behalf of the Apache Jena PPMC,

Rob Vesse
