Subject [DISCUSS] Graduate Apache Geode (incubating) as a TLP
Date Thu, 03 Nov 2016 19:47:53 GMT
Hi!

with the 1.0.0-incubating release officially out (huge kudos
to the team!) there's an overwhelming sentiment among
the Apache Geode community and its mentors that
it is time to consider graduation to the TLP:
    http://markmail.org/message/y5jcaoykchttloyr

Apache Geode entered incubation in April last year and
since then it has demonstrated an outstanding willingness
to be an inclusive, welcoming community that is not afraid
to work through some really thorny technical challenges
(like refactoring the core of the system to get rid of LGPL
dependency) with exemplary understanding of the Apache Way.
The PPMC has demonstrated a good understanding of growing
the community by electing 6 individuals as committers and
PPMC members since last year. In terms of mastering the rules
of IP governance the community has produced 4 releases
(together with binary convenience artifacts) demonstrating their
understanding of ASF's IP policies.

All in all, I'm sure I'll echo my fellow Geode mentors (CCed)
when I say that from our perspective this project has been
conducting itself as a true TLP and it we should recognize this
fact by formally awarding it such a status. This thread, of course,
is mean to open up the very same discussion that we had
among the mentors and Geode community to the rest of the IPMC.
It is a DISCUSS thread so feel free to ask questions/probe, etc.

To get you all going, here's a few data points than may help:
