Links to votes and discussions:

Samza has been incubating for a bit more than a year.  In that time
the community has:
* Completed two Incubator-approved releases
* Opened nearly 500 JIRAs
* Added five new committers/PMC members.
* Expanded the PPMC from its original LinkedIn-only representation to
include contributors from Confluent, Hortonworks, ImproveData,
Microsoft and Oracle.

This thread is to vote on the graduation resolution Samza has
approved.  It will run for at least 96 hours (to Monday, 12/22 Noon
PST, the extra day to accommodate the weekend and holiday schedule).
