Dear committers,

as outlined in the xml.apache.org charter (section 6.2), and in
collaboration with the Incubator

Subject to:

  - relicensing of the XMLBeans codebase using the ASL 1.1 license
  - copyright transfer from BEA to the ASF as described in
http://incubator.apache.org/process.html [1]
  - each initial XMLBeans committer sending in a Contributor's License
  - furthermore, I would strongly suggest the XMLBeans code should only
be moved into Apache CVS once the outstanding LGPL & BEA-licensed code
dependency issues have been resolved.

Please cast your vote on the acceptance of the XMLBeans project for
incubation in the XML.Apache project:

----------- vote ballot ----------

If the outcome of this vote is positive and CLA forms are collected,
work can start on creating the necessary infrastructure resources. I'm
on holiday from the 12th until the 26th of July and won't be able to
help out coordination-wise, but here's a quick list of the top of my head:

  - collection and creation of initial committer accounts, using the
following template:

  To: root@apache.org
  Cc: pmc@xml.apache.org, pmc@incubator.apache.org,

  Subject: Apache account requests for XMLBeans project incubation

  <repeat times="number of committers">
    Full name:                ...
    Preferred userid:         ...
    Forwarding email address: ...
    Unix group:               xml

  - creation of xml-xmlbeans CVS module
      - also configure in ViewCVS
      - commit mails -> xml-xmlbeans-cvs@apache.org
      - add initial committers to the avail list

  - mailing lists:
      - xmlbeans-dev@xml.apache.org
      - xmlbeans-user@xml.apache.org
      - xmlbeans-cvs@xml.apache.org
      - .qmail-xml-xmlbeans-cvs forward to xmlbeans-cvs@xml.apache.org

  - list archiving:
      - mbox -> xml.apache.org/mail
      - Eyebrowse setup

  - Bugzilla project creation and set up of notification mails

  - grant some committers access to xml-site module for website content

  - setup automated checkout of xml-site/targets/xml-beans on daedalus
for website (or give someone access to daedalus for manual website

  - send a big thank you to infrastructure@

That's about all I can think of ATM.


[1] IIRC, there was a form for this as well, but I cannot locate it anymore
