Subject Re: [VOTE] Graduation of Apache Falcon from the Incubator
Date Wed, 05 Nov 2014 14:01:03 GMT
JIRA tickets, releases etc is all very fascinating, but what about the 
community growth?
Do you have any statistics on that, and more specifically, the diversity 
of the project?

I don't mean to be a grump, but Apache is about community over code, so 
you should really present that the community has grown and is ready for 
graduation rather than that you have resolved X number of issues :)

With regards,
