Subject [discussion] JDO out of incubation
Date Fri, 18 Nov 2005 16:11:44 GMT
I'd like to propose that the JDO podling graduate from incubation.   
I'll call for a vote if this discussion is positive.

They are about to do a release, and figure they'd like to do that in  
their new home at DB rather than in incubator.

The active committer community is small, with a "legal diversity  
factor" of 4 or 5, if you count me.

Craig, Michelle, Martin Zaun - from Sun
Matthew Adams, Eric Bendston - independents
Michael Watzek, Michael Bouschen - Techspree

(and if you count me, I have no legal relationship to any  
organization above...)

They also have two very active contributors, who could easily become  
committers (and probably will at some point after graduation)  who  
are independent as well.

They have reasonable dev list traffic,  378 messages in Oct, 473 in  
sept, 290 in Aug... with decisions made in public, and with no rancor  
that I can see.

They hold conference calls once a week (not ideal IMO) but so far  
that doesn't seem to disenfranchise anyone, and they publish the  
minutes to the dev list immediately after the calls.  As far as I can  
tell, there have been no complaints.

The status page :

Anyway, I've notified the DB PMC before I posted this, and CC-ed them  
on this mail.  If there are no complaints, I'll call for a vote to  
both graduate JDO and be accepted by the DB PMC>
