Dear Community:

Thanks  to everyone who participated in the discussion about graduation[1].
This is a formal voting thread for Apache TVM’s graduation.

If this vote passes, the next step would be to submit the resolution below
to the Incubator PMC, who would vote on sending it on to the Apache Board.

[ ] +1 - Recommend graduation of Apache TVM as a TLP
[ ]  0 - I don't feel strongly about it, but don't object
[ ] -1 - Do not recommend graduation of Apache TVM because...

The VOTE will open for at least 72 hours.

This thread is mirrored to dev@, please vote by replying to this thread

The TVM project has been an Apache incubator project for nearly 1.5 year
now. In the past one and half year, the community grew healthily under the
Apache way. Some highlights include:

- A successful developer conference that we are continuing to host this year
- Great community growth, as of now, the community contains 16 PPMC
members, 31 committers, from a diverse list of organizations. We are
actively growing the list monthly.
- Active contributions: ~ 150 PRs merged each month.

The community has produced two formal apache releases. While we could also
wait until more releases. We feel that the community is mature enough that
we can push for graduation as it is, and continue to push for high quality
releases concurrently.

For reference, we also put together a maturity evaluation doc[2] under the
Apache maturity model.

Some additional note about the resolution below: the current PPMC will be
transitioned to the PMC. We have invited all the mentors in the current
PPMC who like to stay involved.
