Subject [DISCUSS] Graduate Apache SkyWalking (incubating) as a TLP (take2)
Date Sun, 03 Mar 2019 12:07:29 GMT

Apache SkyWalking entered incubation in December of 2017. The SkyWalking community has learnt
a lot about how to do things in The Apache Way. 

The first time graduation was raised for discussion, five months ago, the IPMC thought SkyWalking
was not yet ready because of issues around "Community growth and in particular how merit is
recognised".

That pushback has been helpful, the community has become a more open and engaged community.


SkyWalking is making more consensus decisions via the ML, including discussions and decisions
on issue, test, release, new committer and branding issues. Since the last graduation discussion,
the community has voted in 9 new committers, 3 of them also as PPMC members.

SkyWalking has also helped Zipkin with podling learnings. And having a Zipkin mentor involved
in the recent discussions about the role and mechanisms of the IPMC and the board, and any
possible improvements that could be made to the Incubator, it's witnessed and had a positive
experience on the importance of being involved in the broader Apache community. 


After discussion in the podling's community on the dev ML 
https://lists.apache.org/thread.html/9aab116a5df46d10a655bbf243f525260bad7763f6f65bce19ec33bd@%3Cdev.skywalking.apache.org%3E

…and no objections, I'm raising the thread here for further discussion.

Some stats and the proposed resolution is below, but let us know if there's any other information
we can provide to re-assure that the podling is ready for graduation.


A few stats to help with the discussion:

SkyWalking has delivered 8 releases so far in total, and appears now to have a good cadence
of successful releases.

During the podling's time in the Apache Incubator there has been
 3200+ commits on development of the project,
  378 Issues tagged as question in GitHub created, 373 resolved,
  850+ Pull request created and resolved, and
   97 different contributors.

The dev ML has had 72 participants.
