Subject Re: [VOTE] Struts as an Apache Top Level Project
Date Sat, 06 Mar 2004 20:12:45 GMT
>Following up on a brief thread on this list in December [1], Craig, Ted
>and I have put together a draft resolution to the board of directors [2],
>along with a cover letter [3], that would promote Struts to an Apache
>top-level project (TLP).
>The main reasons for moving to a TLP are described on the wiki [4]. In
>Craig's words, "The short answer, though, is we will be in charge of our
>own releases (currently, the Jakarta PMC is the only body legally
>recognized to vote on releases of *any* software under Jakarta)." In
>practice, we can really just continue doing what we've always done.
>As most of you are no doubt aware, several Jakarta sub-projects have
>already made the transition to TLPs, including Ant, Avalon, Gump, James,
>Log4J, Maven, OJB, and Torque. Most Jakarta PMC members seem to be in
>favour of the migrations, largely because a single PMC cannot possibly
>oversee a code base the size of all of Jakarta.
>If you're OK with Struts being a top-level Apache project, please respond
>to this thread with either a +1 or +0. Otherwise, please reply with your
>concerns. When we previously discussed this, it did not seem like anyone
>was opposed to the idea, but if anyone is, now is the time to speak up.
>The resolution as drafted lists the Struts Committers who could
>reasonably be considered active at this time. Of course, we should not
>put anyone on the PMC without their buy-in, so the final resolution would
>only list the Committers who responded to the Vote with a +1 or +0.
>The draft resolution also leaves the name of the Vice President blank.
>Craig seems like the logical candidate, and is willing to act in this
>capacity, but we wanted the VP selection to be a community decision. So,
>please also respond with your nomination for Vice President, Apache
>Here's my +1 on the resolution as drafted, and my +1 for Craig as Vice

+1 for Struts as a top level project
+1 for Craig as VP

Please feel free to add my name to the cover letter.
