Hi Marvin,

I see how you got to your assessment and I think from the outside that makes 
sense :)

In this case, their first challenge clearly indicates making a next release with 
also providing convenience binary artifacts is seen as the next hurdle to take.
It is true AsterixDB already put out two releases, but those were source only 
And the AsterixDB team is well aware that next hurdle isn't going to be so easy.
So I would personally place them still at stage 2 for now.

Community growth, while not stated in this report (and probably an oversight 
from us mentors not requesting them to do so) also needs some further 
development. Although I don't see or expect that to be problematic either, just 
needs a little bit more time. The community is quite vibrant.

At any rate, I think they are in fine shape, just need a bit more time before 
they should start focusing on graduation, that's all.
