Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Pulsar - proposal for Apache Incubation
Date Fri, 12 May 2017 02:28:43 GMT
Hi Dheeban,

tl;dr;: You've kind of stumbled into an early procedural process for adding new ASF projects,
but your interest is very much appreciated.

That's great that you want to get involved! One of the important things new/potential Apache
projects need to do is develop a community. Your interest is a good sign.

At this point the project is an a proposal phase. If the proposal discussion is positive (meaning
most IPMC members appear to support incubating the project), it will move on to a vote. If
the vote passes, the project will be bootstrapped: code imported, mailing lists and bug tracker
created, website domain registered, etc.

Admittedly, our documentation can be bit hard to navigate, but I assume that you're aware
of the ASF Incubator website [1] since you are subscribed to this list. Perusing that site
will give you more insight into what the Incubator is about and how the ASF works.
