Subject [DISCUSS] AOO Ready to Graduate
Date Fri, 17 Aug 2012 15:55:56 GMT
We've had several prods from our mentors suggesting that we are ready
to graduate.  But I think there was general recognition that with
graduation comes a little hump in extra work, both for the project as
well as the IPMC and Infra, especially related to mailing list and
website changes [1].  We wanted to avoid piling that on top of the
already considerable work required to get AOO 3.4.1 released.

The AOO 3.4.1 release is now being voted on.  So I think it is a good
time for us to start this process.

I'd recommend everyone take a look at this timeline [2] for what the
graduation process looks like.  You can see it is three steps:

1) Optional Community vote [3]

2) Preparation of a Charter and Resolution [4]

3) Vote by the IPMC to recommend the Charter/Resolution to the ASF Board.

4) Approval by the ASF Board.

As I understand it the ASF Board meeting on the 3rd Wednesday of each
month.  So the next meeting should be September 19th.  If we start
now, we should have plenty of time to work through this process in
time for that meeting.

I'd like to start the first step, with the optional, but highly
recommended, community vote, stating our belief that we are ready to
graduate.

Regards,

-Rob
