Subject Re: [VOTE] Graduation of Apache Drill from the Incubator
Date Thu, 23 Oct 2014 06:41:05 GMT
I haven't tracked Drill during its incubation, so I read through some
of the dev list, poked through the review board and JIRA, read from
the wiki, and brought up the sample through its 10 minute tutorial.

Drill seems to be a very approachable project. It has good docs
(particularly for development), the community responds to JIRA (I
found no neglected patches in the queue), and the project members have
clearly spent a lot of time thinking about how to welcome new people.

+1 (binding) -C
