Subject [DISCUSS] Graduate Apache Mynewt from podling to TLP
Date Wed, 31 May 2017 15:09:47 GMT

The Apache Mynewt podling just passed the vote within its community to graduate it to a Top
Level Project. 
An informational note was sent out earlier about the vote going on and it was pointed out
that the status page
needed to be updated. We have done that. <>

I’d like to share the full text of the proposed resolution and open it up to discussion
for at least 72 hours 
before putting it to a formal vote.

The incubating Apache Mynewt community believes it is time to graduate to TLP.

Apache Mynewt entered incubation in October of 2015.  Since then, we've overcome technical
challenges and built Apache's first Operating System for IoT devices, and made 6 releases.
 Our most recent releases include NimBLE, OIC1.1 support, MCUbootloader. We are a very helpful
and engaged community, ready to answer all questions and feedback directed to us via the user
list.  We've added several committers from different organizations, and are actively pursuing
others. While we continue working on maturity, all projects are ongoing processes, and we
believe we no longer need the incubator to continue.

To inform the discussion, here is some basic project information:
