Subject [DRAFT] Resolution
Date Thu, 09 Dec 2010 15:10:39 GMT
As you may be aware, the River team is currently pushing towards
graduation and becoming a Top Level Project of the ASF.  Part of this
process is the creation of a "Resolution".  You can find our draft
resolution below.  As suggested by the Apache site, it's based on
someone else's (accepted) resolution - in this case Harmony's.  We'd
be grateful if you could take some time to review this resolution and
let us have any comments about it before we put it to an official
vote.

Information on resolution and charters can be found here;
http://incubator.apache.org/guides/graduation.html#tlp-resolution

Many thanks,

Tom
