Subject [REPORT] Board report 2018-10-17/Attic
Date Tue, 09 Oct 2018 06:08:15 GMT

   FYI ; I submitted the following Board Report :

## Description:
PMC Attic is responsible for the oversight of projects which otherwise would
not have oversight.

## Issues:
FYI ; After the transfer of XMLbeans from Attic to Poi, board asked Attic to
document the "unattick" policy.
On a attic.a.o, under "Process of leaving the Attic again", we have added this :

+ * [option 4] Transfering to an existing PMC
+ A receiving PMC must be willing to assume all responsibilities that come
+ with running a project : maintain code, answer questions, fix bugs,
+ publish releases etc. 
+ If the Board does not object, PMC Attic will transfer the project's assets
+ (code-base, TLP website, maven group-id etc) to the receiving PMC.
+ After the transfer the receiving PMC will report to the Board about the
+ project's activities, and publish project releases in the PMC's dist area.

One point remains ; Attic would like the board's advice on the following.
The Board of Directors Meeting Minutes July 17, 2013, section 7.E says :
... RESOLVED, that the Attic PMC be and hereby is tasked with oversight over
     the software developed by the Apache XMLBeans Project; and be it further ...

As far as Attic knows, Attic is still formally tasked with this oversight.
This is not correct, because the XMLBeans software is now under the care of
PMC Poi.
Attic wants to know how this inaccuracy can be formally remedied.
