Subject [VOTE] Graduate Bigtop podling from Apache Incubator
Date Wed, 12 Sep 2012 16:08:52 GMT
This is a call for vote to graduate Bigtop podling from Apache Incubator

The Apache Bigtop project entered incubator in June of 2011. Since then we
have grown the community in users and contributors, and we've made
significant improvements to the project. Following the Apache guidelines we
have made four releases, we are preparing a 5th major and 6th maintenance
releases, and we've added two new committers. The current set of committers
and PPMC members are from different organizations and have demonstrated
interest in growing the community further. We have learned the basis to manage
the different aspects of an Apache project. The community of Bigtop is active,
healthy and growing and has demonstrated the ability to self-govern using
accepted Apache practices. Bigtop community has voted to proceed with
graduation [1] and the result can be found at [2].

Please cast your votes:

[  ] +1 Graduate Bigtop podling from Apache Incubator
[  ] +0 Indifferent to the graduation status of Bigtop podling
[  ] -1 Reject graduation of Bigtop podling from Apache Incubator

This vote will remain open for at least 72 hours from now (till 15 Sep
2012, NOON PST). Please find the proposed board resolution below.
