Subject Re: [VOTE] Graduation of Apache Spark from the Incubator
Date Fri, 07 Feb 2014 22:28:51 GMT
I'm happy to see that my concerns about Spark are being actively addressed in a professional
non-confrontational manner.

The mismatch between committers and proposed PMC members has been resolved. I guess the only
missing bit is updating the graduation resolution.

The use of git for pull request and comments is being worked on and I have confidence in the
leadership to pursue this to an agreeable solution.

I've reviewed the private list and see that it is being used appropriately to discuss and
vote new committers and PPMC members. 

So I'm changing my vote to +1 subject only to the update of the proposed PMC roster to include
only committers.

Congratulations to the Spark community.
