Subject Re: [VOTE] Graduate Cayenne to TLP status (pending board approval)
Date Fri, 01 Dec 2006 15:52:29 GMT
Actually TLP was the plan from the beginning, the main reason being  
that Cayenne was an existing open source project with a working  
meritocratic self-management since the inception in 2001. In the ASF  
structure this maps best to a TLP with its own PMC.

Also while we have a great working relationship with some folks from  
DB community, there is no committer overlap at the moment. So that  
will make it a pure umbrella project just because Cayenne also  
happens to deal with DB access.


P.S. This reminds me of something that I should've put in my original  
email - I'd like to thank DB PMC (and especially Jean) for all the  
work helping us with various incubation aspects :-)
