Subject Re: [VOTE] Accept Mysos into the Apache Incubator
Date Mon, 01 Jun 2015 13:24:29 GMT
According to the incubator proposal guide for project naming [1] it is
to ensure a suitable project name
<> and
product names sometime during incubation, it is not necessary to do this
prior to entering incubation. In fact, be careful not to disrupt your
proposal and entry process". Since Bertrand has stated his concerns and
that his -1 is not blocking to the project entering incubation and we have
had no other objections (both here, board@, and private@mesos) I see no
reason to not continue to move forward with this proposal.

I will leave the vote window open until the end of today to give anyone who
has not voted the chance to do so and weigh in and cast a vote. In doing so
I ask that everyone please keep votes and comments focused to the proposal
and projects purpose and no additional bikeshedding around the project name.
