Subject draft - discuss message to general@
Date Sat, 31 Aug 2019 01:42:21 GMT
Hi,

I plan on sending the following message to start the discussion about
graduation on general@incubator.apache.org. Please let me know if you have
suggestions for improvement. I plan on sending the message tomorrow
afternoon.

Thanks,
Adina

___________________

The Apache Rya (incubating) community would like to start the discussion
about graduation to a top level project.

The Apache Rya (incubating) community discussed on the dev@ list about our
readiness for graduation [1] and we voted on it affirmatively [2,3]. While
in incubation, our community grew, we learned the Apache Way, and we had
four released with three different release managers. We went through the
process of assessing our project against the Apache Maturity model [4] and
we believe we are ready to graduate and continue to grow as a Top Level
Project.

We worked on creating a graduation resolution and we selected a Chair [5].
The draft resolution is appended below.

Please provide your opinion on this.

Thank you,
Adina
