Subject: [VOTE]Graduation of Apache Samza from Incubator

Following the positive reception to the idea of graduation, I've drawn
up the appropriate resolution. Please vote (everybody is invited and
encouraged to, whether on the PPMC or not, although only PPMC votes
are binding).  If this passes, it'll be kicked up to the Incubator
PPMC for a vote, and from there to the Board.

In light of his tireless dedication to Samza, I've listed Chris as as
the first VP.  The role of VP is closer a secretary in reality; s/he
is responsible for filing the regular board report and handling the
mechanics of affecting committer/PMC additions/deletions.  While not
required, I'd recommend rotating this position on an annual basis,
just to spread experience around.

Vote will run for 72 hours (to 12/11/14, noon PST).

[ ] +1 Graduate Apache Samza from the Incubator.
[ ] +0 Don't care.
[ ] -1 Don't graduate Apache Samza from the Incubator because ...

Here's my binding vote: +1.
