Subject Re: Graduation resolution feedback - Qpid as TLP
Date Thu, 28 Feb 2008 17:35:53 GMT

It looks like you are using a non-applicable template for the board  
resolution. Take a look at other incubator graduation resolutions.

Specifically, the paragraph on establishing bylaws isn't applicable,  
and the incubator needs to be discharged of responsibility.
