Subject [Fwd: [vote] XMLBeans to enter XML incubation [was: Re: Vote for XMLBeans proposal in the XML Project (was RE: Vote for XMLBeans proposal)]]
Date Mon, 21 Jul 2003 07:51:11 GMT
Incubator Team,

The project has voted (18 +1 votes and 1 0 vote, no -1 
votes) to sponsor XMLBeans through the incubation process and thence 
into the XML project.

Ted Leung has volunteered to shepherd XMLBeans through this process on 
behalf of the xml.apache project (assuming the incubation team is 
willing to take this on).

Steven put some thoughts together at the base of this e-mail around 
potential next steps.  We're more than happy to be guided by your good 
selves on how to make this happen, and I'm more than happy to help out 
on anything necessary on the logistics side.

One question - there were a number of thoughts and caveats raised before 
and during the vote.  Should we (can we?) put something together to 
document exit criteria from the incubation process?

Dear committers,

as outlined in the 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 [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 ----------

   Name: ________________

   [  ]  I agree with and support this proposal (+1)
   [  ]  Indifference (-1 < x < +1)
   [  ]  I object and suggest a way to address my reservations (-1)


----------- 8< ----------- 8< ----------- 8< -----------

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:


  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 ->
      - add initial committers to the avail list

  - mailing lists:
      - .qmail-xml-xmlbeans-cvs forward to

  - list archiving:
      - mbox ->
      - 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.
