Hey Peter,

Great work.

Before VOTE'ing it might be nice to do the following:

1. decide on who the recommended VP/chair will be.
I nominate Marvin; or you. The VP/chair is the eyes 
and ears of the board, and responsible for information 
flow down (and up) between it and the committee. 

2. Come up with a graduation resolution.

I see you've started the VOTE thread already, 
so you may simply want to reply back to your 
VOTE thread and include the proposed resolution.

I've drafted the resolution that we can use for Lucy, 
below. This is based on the Gora resolution that we 
just successfully got passed by the board, to graduate
us from the Incubator. 

I took the list of all PPMC members and committers
and combined them together to form the PMC. I also
removed myself from the list. You guys have done great,
and I'm glad to have helped see you guys through the Incubator,
but I'm going to move on at this point. I wish you the best
going forward and I will always be a Champion of Lucy
for VOTE'ing in new ASF members and helping you guys out
from a Foundation perspective however I can.

       WHEREAS, the Board of Directors deems it to be in the best
       interests of the Foundation and consistent with the
       Foundation's purpose to establish a Project Management
       Committee charged with the creation and maintenance of 
       open-source software for full-text search targeted 
       at support for dynamic programming languages 
       for distribution at no charge to the public.

       NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that a Project Management
       Committee (PMC), to be known as the "Apache Lucy Project",
       be and hereby is established pursuant to Bylaws of the
       Foundation; and be it further

       RESOLVED, that the Apache Lucy Project be and hereby is
       responsible for the creation and maintenance of software
       related to open-source software full-text search targeted 
       at support for dynamic programming languages ; and be it further

       RESOLVED, that the office of "Vice President, Apache Lucy" be
       and hereby is created, the person holding such office to
       serve at the direction of the Board of Directors as the chair
       of the Apache Lucy Project, and to have primary responsibility
       for management of the projects within the scope of
       responsibility of the Apache Lucy Project; and be it further

       RESOLVED, that the persons listed immediately below be and
       hereby are appointed to serve as the initial members of the
       Apache Lucy Project:

	• Logan Bell <>
	• Chris Hostetter <>
	• Marvin Humphrey <>
	• Peter Karman <>
	• Nathan Kurz <>
	• Mike McCandless <>
	• Joe Schaefer <>
	• Upayavira <>
	• David E. Wheeler <>
	• Nick Wellnhofer <>
	• Simon Willnauer <>
	• Brad C. Harder <>

       RESOLVED, that the Apache Lucy Project be and hereby
       is tasked with the migration and rationalization of the Apache
       Incubator Lucy sub-project; and be it further

       RESOLVED, that all responsibilities pertaining to the Apache
       Incubator Lucy sub-project encumbered upon the
       Apache Incubator Project are hereafter discharged.

       NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that Mavin Humphrey/
       Peter Karman be appointed to the office of Vice President, Apache Lucy, to
       serve in accordance with and subject to the direction of the
       Board of Directors and the Bylaws of the Foundation until
       death, resignation, retirement, removal or disqualification,
       or until a successor is appointed.

If the VOTE on the above resolution is successful, the next step is
to take the results of the VOTE, and the resolution, present it
to general@ and call for a VOTE. If that is successful, I can add
the resolution to the next board agenda for discussion at their
next meeting.
