Subject Re: [VOTE] Move Chukwa to incubator
Date Wed, 23 Jun 2010 05:54:06 GMT
Besides DOAP file and the incubator nomenclature, I may need help identify
the addition responsibilities for Apache PMC.  One problem, Chukwa community
did not have a vote for PMC Chair because we are not sure what is the right
process for this.  Meanwhile, I have been writing quarterly report like any
other Apache project, only recipient of the report is different.

Chukwa releases have been voted by Chukwa community which is similar to
Hadoop releases, and managed incremental changes using patches and
committers.  Code audit has been performed by the committers to ensure we
don't bring in license incompatible libraries into Chukwa.

Owen O'Malley had trained us these procedures roughly two years ago, and we
have been executing the same process ever since.

Chukwa has a community of exist user base of 35 people.  It would be nice to
make Chukwa a special case to skip incubator nomenclature.  This would ease
the migration path for the existing Chukwa community.
