Thanks for bringing up this topic, Luciano.  I definitely think it is the right time to start
discussing graduation.  The past 16 months have shown a sustained and growing level of commitment
to the project, with several exciting new areas of development that the community is continuing
to work on.  As a community, we've grown to value and embrace the Apache process, and it's
allowed us to hold effective public discussions on code, branding, etc., to the benefit of
the project.
