Subject [RESULT][VOTE] Accept Mysos into the Apache Incubator
Date Tue, 02 Jun 2015 01:55:24 GMT
With 14 positive votes (6 binding and 8 non-binding) and 1 negative vote,
which was stated as non-blocking to the project entering incubation and
negative only in context to the name, the vote to accept Mysos into the
incubator passes.

For initial project setup I will be submitting the account requests for the
new project committers and creating a dev@ list. I plan to initiate a name
search request with trademark@ and will start a thread on the new dev@ list
regarding the projects name so the community can have a discussion around
this topic. Anyone wishing to join in on the discussion will be encouraged
to do so on the soon to be dev@ list.
