Subject [VOTE] Recommend 'Apache SkyWalking graduation to Top Level Project' resolution to board
Date Tue, 19 Mar 2019 05:21:41 GMT

After the latest discussion amongst this dev community on this dev mailing list[1],  presenting
Sheng Wu as the PMC Chair and the maturity model[2], and then the discussion again on the
incubator list[3],  a vote for Apache SkyWalking graduating to a top level project was called
and has passed[4]. From the past incubator discussions the PPMC altered the draft graduation
proposal, specifically the proposed PMC list: removing some inactive people and adding all
the podling Committers. 

Apache SkyWalking entered the incubator on December of 2017.  SkyWalking has delivered 8 releases
so far in total, and now shows a good cadence of successful releases.

During the podling's time in the Apache Incubator there has been
 3200+ commits on development of the project,
  378 Issues tagged as question in GitHub created, 373 resolved,
  850+ Pull request created and resolved,
  97 different contributors,
    9 elected new committers, and
    3 elected new PPMC members.

And the dev ML has had 72 participants:

Attached is the draft Resolution for the PPMC and IPMC to vote upon.

Please take a minute to vote on whether or not Apache SkyWalking should
graduate to a Top Level Project by responding with one of the following:

[ ] +1 Apache SkyWalking should graduate.
[ ] +0 No opinion
[ ] -1 Apache SkyWalking should not graduate (please provide the reason)

The VOTE is open for a minimum of 72 hours. As there has been previous discussions on past
versions of this proposal, I have not preluded the vote with a DISCUSS email. If feedback
arises the vote period will be extended in good faith.
