Subject [VOTE] Accept EasyAnt as a subproject - take 2
Date Wed, 27 Feb 2013 18:44:09 GMT

This is the come back of the proposal of bringing EasyAnt under the umbrella of the Ant PMC.

There were some discussion on incubator-general about the incubating hcatalog project being
"graduated" under the umbrella of the Hive PMC. I think that our case is more clear and more
standard regarding the ASF rules, but I'll remind here what is at stake, so there is no misunderstanding
(I include myself on the potentially misunderstanding people).

EasyAnt code will be brought into Ant's svn tree.
EasyAnt committers will become Ant committers but not part of the PMC (on 5 committers, 3
are already Ant ones, and 2 are part of Ant's PMC)
The Ant PMC will be responsible for the code, the community, the next releases of EasyAnt.

Just like for Ivy. And I like the way it worked. Further more considering my path, I think
it is good that there is no special right management in svn. I started as an IvyDE committer,
I ended improving myself Ivy and Ant.

Since the last vote tentative, the activity on EasyAnt remained the same, somehow low but
continuous, not much less than Ant developers activity. And lately we succeeded to get a release

To get yourself an opinion, here are some links:
- the EasyAnt project incubator page:
- the archive of the mailing lists
- the release

So, should we accept EasyAnt as a subproject ?
Please, cast your votes:
[ ] +1, I accept
[ ] +0, OK, but….
[ ] -1, I disapprove, because….
