Subject [DISCUSS ] Graduate Apache Ranger project to TLP
Date Tue, 27 Dec 2016 18:22:30 GMT
Dear Incubator members,

Apache Ranger Project community has successfully released 0.6.2 version and with this there
had been a lot of discussion within Apache Ranger community to consider graduation to TLP.
 Apache Ranger entered into incubation on 24th July 2014 and from there on this welcoming
community had done a tremendous job in various technical areas like refactoring the Ranger
project core model to be service based, supporting additional Apache Hadoop components like
 Apache Knox, Apache YARN, Apache Storm, Apache Kafka, Apache NiFi, Apache Ranger KMS into
Ranger authorizing  model for security and making it into a core product in the Apache Hadoop
security space. Apache Ranger PPMC has exhibited a clear understanding of this growing community
by electing  4 individuals as committers  and  including 22 individuals as contributors. PPMC
also has done 8 successful releases under the guidance of mentors demonstrating their mastery
over AFS’s IP policies.

An voting was conducted with in Apache Ranger Community to graduate Apache Ranger Project
to Top Level Project. Vote passed with 16 +1 votes, no 0 or –1 votes.

Saying this I see that Apache Ranger Project has shown a great potential to become a true
TLP.  Following summary of the Apache Ranger Project gives a good amount of details on the
project.
This is a DISCUSS thread to open up the discussion with other IPMC, so please feel free to
ask questions and discuss.

Thanks
