Subject [VOTE] Apache Tuscany Graduation as TLP
Date Wed, 14 May 2008 18:51:13 GMT
After 29 months in the incubator, 19 releases, 25 new committers, and
tons of emails the Apache Tuscany community (with support from our
mentors) again feels that we are ready to graduate to an official top
level project at Apache as indicated by the community vote recorded

We would like the resolution below to be presented to the board for
consideration at the next possible board meeting.

Thanks in advance for your time and consideration.
