From Andrea Pescetti <pesce...@apache.org>
Subject Proposed resolution: Establish the Apache OpenOffice Project
Date Tue, 09 Oct 2012 08:24:58 GMT
The Apache OpenOffice PPMC and Community believe the project is ready to 
graduate to a Top Level Project.

Multiple steps were taken in this direction, including:
- Community vote to start graduation process: http://s.apache.org/e7F
- Consensus on resolution text: http://s.apache.org/JN8
- Election of Starting Membership for the PMC: http://s.apache.org/aR9
- Election of a (future) PMC Chair: http://s.apache.org/019
- Feedback from mentors: http://markmail.org/message/utklcwlfwl5wp5sx

The proposed resolution text follows. I expect to start a VOTE on it on 
general@incubator as soon as there is consensus (on the same list).
