Subject [VOTE] Apache DataFu graduation proposal
Date Thu, 01 Feb 2018 23:18:32 GMT
Hi all,

I would like to open another vote for Apache DataFu graduating from
Incubator.  We previously voted on this back in July, 2017 and the vote
Following that vote, there was a discussion
the Incubator general list about DataFu graduating.  There were several
pieces of feedback:

* Comments about number of committers vs. proposed PMC size (here
 and here
* Comments about process for removing committers (here
 and here
* Comments about the website, sha-512 extension, etc. (here
).  DATAFU-131 <> was filed
to address these.

All of that feedback should be addressed as of now (see the bottom of this
email for the more detailed summary).  The list of proposed PMC members has
been updated in the graduation resolution to include 11 of the current
committers.  The remaining committers declined to remain committers and
join the PMC.  Upon graduation these individuals will no longer be
committers.  However given their past contributions would be considered if
they wished to become committers again in the future.  With this feedback
addressed, I reopened the discussion
the Incubator general list.  There has only been positive feedback so far.

Given the above, I again propose that Apache DataFu graduate from incubator
and become a top-level project.  The proposed graduation resolution can be
found at

The vote will be open for 72 hours.

[ ] +1 approve of graduation, graduation resolution and changes to
committers discussed above
[ ] +0 no opinion
[ ] -1 disapprove (and reason why)

My vote: +1

If this vote passes then the next step is an Incubator PMC vote.  I will
forward this email to the Incubator general list as an FYI that the vote is
taking place.



To summarize what has happened since the previous discussion in the
Incubator general list:

* Each committer was reached out to and asked whether they were willing to
join the PMC and fulfill the responsibilities that come with it.  The
<> has
been updated to reflect those who were willing to join the PMC.  The
remainder declined to remain committers.  The proposed PMC size is now 11of
the current committers.  The remaining committers will no longer be
committers upon graduation.
* The Becoming a Committer
<> page
no longer has a section about removing committers.
* All the issues that were raised and led to DATAFU-131 being filed have
been addressed.  A summary:
    - The Quick Start page has been replaced with a Download page
<>.  The list of
source releases is prominent at the top and there is a section describing
how to validate releases.
    - Links to ASF website, license, thanks, apache feather, etc. were added
    - Links have been updated to reflect recent 1.3.3 release.
    - Old releases have been cleaned up from and

    - DataFu Whimsy <> page is
now mostly passing aside from Image and Events (not clear if these are
expected to pass).

    - SHA-512 checksum file now ends in .sha512.  The new release 1.3.3
included this change.
