Subject [IMPC] [VOTE] Graduate Apache Jena as a Top Level Project
Date Mon, 02 Apr 2012 09:10:30 GMT
This is a call for vote to graduate the Apache Jena podling from Apache 
Incubator to be a top level project.

Jena entered incubation in November 2010.  The project has added two new 
committers and PPMC members, made several releases and has a diverse 
committer base.  The user and development communities are active.  The 
PPMC has indicated [1,2,3] that it believes the project is ready to 
graduate as a top-level project with the resolution draft below.

We ask that the IPMC approve this graduation request though this VOTE.

[3] Request for comments:
