Subject [VOTE] Graduate Tuscany as a top level project
Date Fri, 12 Oct 2007 08:42:00 GMT
The Tuscany podling respectfully requests the Incubator to consider its
graduation to a Top Level Project.

While incubating Tuscany has made 14(!) releases, voted in 19 new
committers, survived conflicts, formed its PPMC, learned how to govern
itself, resolved licensing issues and an active community continues to grow
around Tuscany.

The community vote for graduation can be found on the Tuscany dev list at:

We have prepared the resolution below to be presented for consideration at
the upcoming Board meeting.

We invite everyone to vote to approve this proposal.

Many thanks,
