Subject [VOTE]: Graduate Apache jclouds as an Apache Top Level Project
Date Fri, 20 Sep 2013 23:49:31 GMT
The Apache jclouds project entered incubation in April of 2013, and since
then has shipped two releases, added a committer, and transitioned
thoroughly into the Apache Way for decision-making, development process,
etc. Our website[1] conforms, so far as we can tell, with Apache's
standards, the existing jclouds registered trademark has been transferred
to the ASF[2], we've decided on a set of project bylaws[4], and now we've
held a vote[5] on a graduation resolution[6, and below] to be added to the
agenda for the next ASF board meeting.

The vote has passed[7] with 7 binding PPMC +1s and 4 binding mentor +1s, so
on behalf of the Apache jclouds project, I'd like to request the IPMC's
approval for our graduation. Thanks!
Please cast your vote:
[ ] +1 Graduate the Apache jclouds podling from Apache Incubator as a TLP[
] +0 Indifferent to the graduation status of Apache jclouds podling[ ] -1
Reject graduation of Apache jclouds podling from Apache Incubator because
The vote will be open for 72 hours, until 5pm PDT on Monday, September 23rd.

Thanks again -The Apache jclouds project
