Subject Fwd: [VOTE] Apache NetBeans graduation to Top Level Project
Date Mon, 11 Mar 2019 10:55:36 GMT
As stated in the Apache guidelines[1], I am being wise and am notifying the
incubator general list that the community vote for graduating Apache
NetBeans has started by FWD-ing the [VOTE] e-mail to the general list.

Subject: [VOTE] Apache NetBeans graduation to Top Level Project
To: dev <>, dev <>

Hi all,

After a discussion amongst the Apache NetBeans community on the dev mailing
list[1], voting on a PMC chair[2], checking the podling status page[3], and
working through the maturity model[4], I would like to call a vote for
Apache NetBeans graduating to a top level project.

Apache NetBeans entered the incubator on October 1, 2016. Since then, we
have announced 2 releases, nominated several new committers, participated
in conferences and events, have 99 contributors with 2,423 commits, and --
most importantly -- have grown and diversified our community. Apache
NetBeans is a healthy project that is already acting like an Apache top
level project, so we should take the next step.

If we agree that we should graduate to a top level project, the next step
will be to draft a Resolution for the PPMC and IPMC to vote upon.

Please take a minute to vote on whether or not Apache NetBeans should
graduate to a Top Level Project by responding with one of the following:

[ ] +1 Apache NetBeans should graduate.
[ ] +0 No opinion
[ ] -1 Apache NetBeans should not graduate (please provide the reason)

The VOTE is open for a minimum of 72 hours. Per Apache guidelines[5] I will
also be notifying the incubator mailing list that a community vote is under


on behalf of the Apache NetBeans PPMC
