This is a vote for Calcite to become a top-level project.

Since joining the Incubator in May, 2014, the Calcite
community has:
* Produced eight IPMC-approved releases under two release
* Added five new committers and one new PPMC member;
* Collaborated successfully with several other Apache
projects (Drill, Hive, Kylin, Phoenix, Samza);
* Grown into an active community (typical monthly activity
is 100 emails, 30 commits and 20 issues fixed);
* Conducted a successful community vote to graduate with
20 +1 votes, of which 2 were from our mentors, 12 were
from committers, and 6 were from IPMC members.

Further information: the discussion on the dev list [1],
vote thread [2] and result [3]. Also relevant are the
incubation status page [4] and a thread on this list
requesting review of whether Calcite met the criteria to
graduate [5].

Below is our proposed resolution for the Board.

Please vote:

[ ] +1 Graduate Apache Calcite as a top-level project
[ ] +0
[ ] -1 Do not graduate Apache Calcite because…

Here is my vote:
+1 (binding)

Voting will last 72 hours, ending at 19:00 Pacific on
September 17th.

Julian Hyde, on behalf of Calcite PPMC
