Subject Re: [DISCUSSION] Graduate NiFi from the Apache Incubator
Date Sun, 14 Jun 2015 13:55:28 GMT
Niclas,

I agree that the scope could be improved.  It is a tough balancing act
of course.  How would about this modification:

    WHEREAS, the Board of Directors deems it to be in the best
    interests of the Foundation and consistent with the
    Foundation's purpose to establish a Project Management
    Committee charged with the creation and maintenance of
    open-source software, for distribution at no charge to
    the public, related to an automated and durable data broker
    between systems providing realtime command and control
    and detailed chain of custody for data.

    NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that a Project Management
    Committee (PMC), to be known as the "Apache NiFi Project",
    be and hereby is established pursuant to Bylaws of the
    Foundation; and be it further

    RESOLVED, that the Apache NiFi Project be and hereby is
    responsible for the creation and maintenance of software
    related to an automated and durable data broker
    between systems providing realtime command and control
    and detailed chain of custody for data; and be it further

    ...


Thanks
Joe
