Subject [VOTE] Graduate Apache Marmotta as TLP
Date Mon, 04 Nov 2013 08:59:42 GMT
Hi all,

the Marmotta podling, whose goal is to provide an Open Platform for
Linked Data, entered incubation in December 2012. Since then, the
codebase has stabilized and two releases were published following ASF
policies and guidelines.
The community has grown, two new committers have joined the development
team and more people joined the mailing lists.

The last incubator report lists Marmotta as "Ready to graduate" [1], the
Marmotta community has decided to take this step [2] and agreed on a
Graduation Resolution Draft [3] which is also attached below.

The resolution draft was posted to general@incubator.a.o for discussion
[4] and raised no concerns, now please cast your votes:

[ ]  +1 Graduate the Marmotta podling from Incubator
[ ]  +0 Indifferent to graduation status of the Marmotta podling
[ ]  -1 Reject graduation of the Marmotta podling from Incubator because...

The vote will be open for at least 72 hours starting now.


Best,
Jakob
on behalf of the Marmotta community
