Hello folks

Tez entered incubation in February, 2013. Since then, we have made progress towards graduation[1]. The Tez community recently voted positively towards graduation[2] with 27 +1s.
Of the 27, there were 5 IPMC votes from our mentors:
- Alan Gates
- Arun C. Murthy
- Chris Mattman
- Chris Douglas
- Jakob Homan

Now, I would like to ask the IPMC to vote for the graduation of Apache Tez.

Please VOTE to indicate if Apache Tez is ready to graduate as a Top Level Project. The board resolution is included below.

[ ] +1 Graduate Apache Tez as a TLP
[ ] +0 Don't care.
[ ] -1 Don't graduate Apache Tez as a TLP because…

The vote will remain open for 72 hours.

— Hitesh Shah ( on behalf of Tez PPMC )
