Subject [DISCUSS] Apache MADlib podling graduation
Date Tue, 23 May 2017 06:24:20 GMT
Hi!

with my mentor hat on, I wanted to kick off this discussion
thread on the basis of a general consensus in the MADlib
community that it is time for the project to consider a TLP
status: http://markmail.org/thread/mgjzwjjriqjrfsix

Apache MADlib entered incubation on Sept. 15, 2015.  Since
that time we have made 5 releases, added 3 committers and
are actively pursuing other committers.  We have extensive
user documentation, an up-to-date wiki and an informative
web page.  We are a very helpful and engaged community,
ready to answer all questions and feedback via the dev and
user mailing lists.  We have learned much about the Apache Way
as a result of being an incubating project, and have incorporated
the guidance that we have been given by our mentors and others.
As part of that learning process we've learned a great deal about
ASF's approach to IP and have resolved MADlib licensing concerns
stemming from its BSD licensed past LEGAL-293.  While we plan
to continue to develop as a community, we do not feel that remaining
as an incubating project is a prerequisite for this development.

To inform the discussion, some project information is listed below:
