Subject RE: [DISCUSS]: next step towards graduation

Clumsy sentence repair:  

I notice in the Symphony code that there is no reflection of the Symphony grant.  Replacement
of headers by ALv2 notices has not occurred.  Incompatible license notices and closed-source
proprietary notices continue to appear among the files.

The proposed PMC chair is not an officer of the PPMC.  The PPMC has no chair.  

I suppose the updated graduation resolution would need to be balloted here.  Then the IPMC
can vote on it on their list for graduation.

Also, all of the things that a PPMC is supposed to have been done need to be checked off somewhere
- on the podling status page, I expect.

Meanwhile ...

Different question. 

I nose around in the Symphony code from time to time and I notice there is no reflection of
the grant and availability under ALv2 has occurred.  

Is it expected that something be done about that?  There are files that are 

  - still under Sun LGPL license, 
  - some that add an IBM License and copyright under private license
  - some that claim an IBM Copyright and provide no license whatsoever,
    although there is a notice concerning government use

we made good progress towards graduation and I would like to discuss the
next steps.

- we have selected the initial PMC roster
- we have selected a PMC chair (vote finished, result summary out
standing but we have a clear vote for Andrea Pescetti)
- graduation resolution already updated with PMC roster and preliminary
with the PMC chair

Next steps to reach potentially the October board meeting:
- start IPMC vote, who will trigger this? Should it or have it be
triggered by the new PMC chair?

I hope we can start this IPMC vote on Tuesday or Wednesday latest.
Anything else we need?
