Subject [RESULT] WAS Re: [VOTE] Accept Science Data Analytics Platform (SDAP) into Apache Incubator WAS Re: [DISCUSS] Accept Science Data Analytics Platform (SDAP) into Apache Incubator
Date Fri, 20 Oct 2017 21:21:33 GMT
Hi general@,
72 hours has now elapsed since this VOTE was opened...
The RESULT is as follows

[6] +1 Accept Science Data Analytics Platform (SDAP) into Apache Incubator
Lewis John McGibbney*
Madhawa Kasun Gunasekara
Tom Barber*
Julian Hyde*
Chris Mattmann*
Raphael Bircher*

[0] +/-0 ... just because
[0] -1 Do NOT Accept Science Data Analytics Platform (SDAP) into Apache
Incubator... because

* IPMC Binding

I would like to thank everyone from the Incubator community who was able to
review, DISCUSS and VOTE. Also like to thank Thomas Huang for his patience
and vision to bring SDAP to Apache.
Best
Lewis
