    Hi Everyone,
    The incubating Apache Metron community believes it is time to graduate
    to TLP.
    Apache Metron entered incubation in December of 2015. Since then, we've
    overcome technical challenges to remove Category X dependencies, and
    made 3 releases. Our most recent release contains binary convenience
    artifacts. We are a very helpful and engaged community, ready to answer
    all questions and feedback directed to us via the user list. Through our
    time in incubation we've added a number of committers and promoted some
    of them to PPMC membership. We are actively pursuing others. While we do
    still have issues to address raised by means of the maturity model, all
    projects are ongoing processes, and we believe we no longer need the
    incubator to continue addressing these issues.
    To inform the discussion, here is some basic project information:
