Subject [VOTE] Graduate Apache Wicket from the incubator
Date Thu, 24 May 2007 16:46:19 GMT
Dear Incubator,

The Wicket podling respectfully requests the Incubator to consider
its graduation to a Top Level Project. Please vote on recommending
the attached draft board resolution.

The vote will end in 72 hours, 1900 hours CET sunday 27-May-2007.

[ ] +1 Recommend to the board to establish Apache Wicket
[ ] -1 Do not recommend establishing Apache Wicket because...

The community vote for proposing the graduation can be found at:

The Wicket community was already diverse when it entered the incubator, and
has grown even more diverse by adding 3 additional members to its core.

In the months following the incubation the Wicket community has resolved
several licensing issues, and overcame a very drastic change in the future of
the project (scrapping a future direction of the framework).

During the process of incubation, the PPMC learned how to govern itself,
voting in new committers and PPMC members.

Mentors offered invaluable advice and assistance in getting the project set up
and settled in the Apache infrastructure. Their guidance has helped the
project mature and follow Apache community principles even more than it
already did.

During the incubation the Wicket project has issued one release.

The incubator checklist web page for Wicket can be found at:
