Subject [VOTE] Graduate CloudStack from Incubator
Date Thu, 14 Mar 2013 16:47:45 GMT
Apache CloudStack entered the Incubator in April of 2012. We have made
significant progress with the project since moving over to Apache. 

We have 31 committers and 13 PPMC members listed on our status page at [1], 
not including the 8 mentors that helped guide our community through incubation.  
16 of the committers and 7 of the PPMC members were added after the podling was
formed. One mentor joined the project after the podling started.  3 of the initial
committers that were not in the initial PPMC have now joined the PPMC. 7 of our 
mentors will be remaining with the project as it transitions into a TLP.

We have verified that Apache CloudStack is a suitable name [2], and the
CloudStack marks are being donated from Citrix to the ASF.

We completed two releases (Apache CloudStack 4.0.0-incubating and Apache 
CloudStack 4.0.1-incubating) and are currently preparing for two more (4.0.2 
and 4.1.0).

Our community has created a set of bylaws for the project [3].

The community of Apache CloudStack is active, healthy, and growing and has
demonstrated the ability to self-govern using accepted Apache practices.

After holding a discussion [4][5], the Apache CloudStack community subsequently 
voted overwhelmingly to graduate [6], collecting 55 +1 votes (including 
4 from IPMC members), and no +0 or -1 votes.

IPMC members voting +1 in the project-level thread are:
 * Mohammad Nour El-Din (IPMC/mentor) [7]
 * Noah Slater (IPMC/mentor) [8]
 * Alex Karasulu (IPMC/mentor) [9]
 * Brett Porter (IPMC/mentor) [10]

Please cast your votes:

[ ] +1 Graduate Apache CloudStack from Apache Incubator
[ ] +0 Indifferent to graduation status of Apache CloudStack
[ ] -1 Reject graduation of Apache CloudStack from Apache Incubator because...
