Subject Re: [VOTE] Graduate Click as an Apache TLP
Date Sun, 18 Oct 2009 18:16:27 GMT

I've been significantly impressed with the quality of the Click
project from both a community and a code standpoint.

This is a small but innovative project that illustrates the benefits
of the Apache way.  Besides Will and Henning's Apache experience,
Malcolm Edgar is also involved in Apache Cayenne.   The committers
come from several locations and are encouraging of users and nw
developers.   New features, which get added on a regular basis, are
coming from both the committers and the larger community.  In general,
the tone of the project is professional and inclusive.  There's really
very little more which this project can learn from the Incubator--
it's clearly time for it to graduate.

A concern which was raised last time Click came up for graduation was
that the project had not added any additional committers beyond the
original pool.  That is no longer true-- a new committer has been
added and I expect will join PMC within a few months.  The PMC remains
on the lookout for repeat contributors who are candidates for becoming
new committers.

Jim notes that there are only 5 PMC members.  I'm not worried about
this-- this is comparable to many other small TLPs.  As more
committers join the PMC this will grow over time.
