Yes, and Bertrand has conducted the check we now run on poddling we
think are ready to become TLP.

As a mentor who have followed a few podlings in the past, I must say
that Groovy was one of the easiest ! OTOH, the project was already
mature before being accepted in incubator. Keep in mind that this move
was dictated by the decision from Pivotal to stop paying the main
developpers, combined with the shutdown of the Codehaus hosting
facility. The Groovy fellows decided that The ASF was the best place to
host the project, and they did a long due diligence to check that the
ASF requirements were easy to follow for them. In many ways, it was all
about finding the right place for the project, and The ASF was a perfect

Every single requirements (IP clearance, voting releases, accepting new
committers, discussion on the ML, etc) where easily met, and the groovy
community was really open minded and ready for any required change in
their way of doing things. Mature ? You bet !
