Subject [VOTE] Graduation of DirectMemory as a TLP
Date Tue, 31 Jul 2012 22:22:18 GMT
The DirectMemory community is ready to graduate and become a full TLP.
 We began incubation in October 2011 and have demonstrated our ability
to function according to the Apache Way.  We've successfully made a
release.  We have begun to grow the community.  We didn't hold a
separate formal vote - it's not a requirement - but the sense of the
community is that we're ready to go[1].

Please VOTE to submit the below resolution to the board for consideration:

[ ] +1 DirectMemory graduates to TLP
[ ] -1 DirectMemory isn't ready, because...

Vote will remain open for 72hrs...
