Are you saying Droids is ready to graduate, or...?

Looking at its mailing lists and last report, I'm not seeing many signs
of activity. Why is it a target for graduation rather than retirement?
Is there activity that I'm missing? Last release was in August 2012, at
least according to its Web site. (0.2-incubating)

Under the proposed rules, Droids would be a candidate for retirement,
not graduation, unless I'm missing something.

I fail to see any harm in having a rule to start a VOTE if a podling
doesn't meet certain criteria. Worst case scenario, we have a discussion
and the podling/mentors can make a case that the podling just needs more
time to graduate and/or certain types of assistance.
