Subject [DISCUSS] Apache Brooklyn graduation as TLP
Date Thu, 24 Sep 2015 17:26:20 GMT
The Brooklyn community and project made significant advances in the past 
months and believes it is ready to graduate as a top-level project.

The Apache Brooklyn is very active. The PPMC doubled in size and 
increased diversity in the past year. A few release candidates and two 
very solid final releases in the past few months. There were 
presentations about Brooklyn at at least 3 big conferences I attended 
this year (including ApacheCon in Austin). Talks about Brooklyn are 
scheduled at ApacheCon EU in Budapest next week, it would be great to 
use the occasion and venue to announce the graduation plans.

A vote passed unanimously on the dev@ list (7 +1 votes). Please find 
below references to the graduation preparation artifacts:
* discussion on dev list [1]
* vote thread [2]
* approved podling name search [3]
* incubation status [4]
* proposed resolution below

We believe Apache Brooklyn is ready to become a top-level
project and if the IPMC agree we will move to a formal vote. There are a 
few more items to be updated on the project status page during the next 
couple of days.

Many thanks to the mentors and the IPMC for the support,
