Subject [DISCUSS] Graduate Kylin from the Apache Incubator
Date Wed, 07 Oct 2015 15:28:51 GMT
The Kylin community and project made significant advances during the
incubating (from Nov 2014) and
believes it is ready to graduate as a top-level project.

The Apache Kylin is very active. The PPMC doubled in size (added 6
committers and 2 mentors) and
 increased diversity in the past year. Released 3 version in the past 6
months. There were presentations about Kylin
at most of the big conferences of the world (including Strata+Hadoop World
London, Hadoop Summit San Jose,
ApacheCon EU, Big Data Technology China, Database Technology Conference
China) and some meetups (Bay Area,
Beijing and one is coming in this weekend in Shanghai), and many talks
around the world.
The dev mailing list is growing very month, about 500+ topics per month
The community created 1000+ JIRA tickets, many patches from
contributors/committers have been merged into code base.

A vote passed unanimously on the dev@ list (27 +1 votes). Please find below
references to the graduation preparation artifacts:
* discussion on dev list [1]
* vote thread [2]
* podling name search (still in progress) [3]
* incubation status [4]
* proposed resolution below

We believe Apache Kylin is ready to become a top-level project and if the
IPMC agree we will move to a formal vote.
There are a few more items to be updated on the project status page and
others during the next couple of days.

Many thanks to the mentors and the IPMC for the support,
Luke Han (on behalf of the Apache Kylin PPMC)
