Subject [VOTE] Drop incubating requirement of Maven artifacts
Date Mon, 02 Jan 2017 17:22:58 GMT

I'm calling to vote on a proposed policy change.  Current guide at [1]
indicates that maven artifacts should include incubator (or incubating) in
the version string of maven artifacts.  Its labeled as a best practice, not
a requirement and is not a policy followed on other repository management
tools (e.g. PyPi).

I therefore push forward that the incubator will cease expecting java-based
projects to publish artifacts with "-incubating" in the version string,
with the understanding that:

- Incubating is a term used to refer to a project's stability, not a
release's stability.  It is generally understood that incubating projects
are not necessarily immature, but may have a potential of failing to become
a TLP.
- Podling releases are endorsed, the podling itself is not endorsed.  We
will not approve releases that are blatantly against ASF policies.

[ ] +1 Drop the -incubator/-incubating expectation of maven projects
[ ] +/0
[ ] -1 Don't drop because....
