Subject Qpid Graduation - for top level (resolution)
Date Thu, 06 Nov 2008 01:38:06 GMT

It is with the support of our mentors and a community vote on our dev 
list that Qpid would
like to proceed to graduation. In our last graduation vote the incubator 
PMC felt that the
Qpid project should increase its diversity. Over the intervening months 
Qpid has added
more independents to the project & PPMC, bringing the diversity to 7 
independent parties (not counting those mentors who will stay on to help 
Qpid also continues to attract more contributors, so the committer pool 
and diversity
should continue to expand as contributors are voted in as committers.

Qpid has also made an additional release since the last graduation 
attempt and is currently
working through close down of the next release.

Attached is the graduation resolution, which was critiqued (/bashed :-) 
on the general list
on our last graduation attempt with updated would be PMC...

Please review our resolution, and provide any feedback or questions 
before a vote is started
on the general list to graduate Qpid as a top level project

many thanks.
