Subject [DISCUSS] Apache Metron podling Graduation
Date Thu, 23 Mar 2017 18:32:02 GMT
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:
