I totally root for the graduation. To me, there is no blocker for OpenWhisk graduation under
Apache, except something we can improve.

I have made some progress in terms of Jenkins pipeline build for OpenWhisk. Three of the VMs
dedicated to OpenWhisk have been used as an distributed environment for openwhisk to deploy
and test:

I am not sure if everyone can access this link and manually launch Jenkins build for OpenWhisk.
I hope folks can give a test. This is the only thing I hope can be done before graduation.
Best wishes.

Subject: [DISCUSS] graduation from the incubator

I'd like to kick off a discussion to assess the project's readiness for
graduation from the incubator.

Per Rodric's recent stats [1], the community has developed nicely in terms
of code contribution.

We've released a number of software components following the Apache release
process.  We are in the midst of making our first "uber-release" across all
of our sub-components (expect at least 2 voting threads next week).

Overall I think the community is active.  Communication on the project
slack is frequent (avg of >160 messages a day) and is now digested daily to
the dev list. (See [2] for stats).

There are a couple procedural tasks we still need to complete, foremost
being the formal transfer of the OpenWhisk trademarks from IBM to the ASF.
But I think we can assume that these tasks will be completed and start
considering graduation in parallel.

Please share your thoughts,
