Subject Re: [vote] XMLBeans to enter XML incubation [was: Re: Vote for XMLBeans proposal in the XML Project (was RE: Vote for XMLBeans proposal)]
Date Tue, 08 Jul 2003 14:00:31 GMT
Hi Berin,

I'll forward your note to the xerces-j-dev list; for the moment, I think
we're the XML subproject most directly affected.

Just a process question though:  So this vote is to accept XMLBeans into
incubation, as well as to set out the set of conditions that must be met
during incubation in order for the subproject to become a full-fledged
member of the xml.apache.org project, right?  Assuming the code is
accepted, when the time comes when the members of the XMLBeans community
decide that they believe they have met the conditions we set out here, will
there be another vote held to formally bring the subproject into
xml.apache.org, or will someone (you as the PMC chair perhaps) simply
decide whether or not the conditions have indeed been met?

Cheers!
Neil

+1.  Subject to committer issues previously discussed being worked
through in the incubator.

Would it be worth each of the PMC reps putting this into the -dev lists?
   Am not sure if all committers are subscribed to general@ and it might
make the logistics a bit easier?

Am happy to help out on the logistics side, and I think Ted has also
indicated he is happy to be the official "shepherd".

Cheers,
             Berin
