The Apache jclouds project entered incubation in April of 2013, and since then has shipped two releases, added a committer, and transitioned thoroughly into the Apache Way for decision-making, development process, etc. Our website conforms, so far as we can tell, with Apache's standards, the existing jclouds registered trademark has been transferred to the ASF, we've decided on a set of project bylaws, and now we've held a vote on a graduation resolution[6, and below] to be added to the agenda for the next ASF board meeting.
The vote has passed with 7 binding PPMC +1s and 4 binding mentor +1s, so on behalf of the Apache jclouds project, I'd like to request the IPMC's approval for our graduation. Thanks! Please cast your vote: [ ] +1 Graduate the Apache jclouds podling from Apache Incubator as a TLP[ ] +0 Indifferent to the graduation status of Apache jclouds podling[ ] -1 Reject graduation of Apache jclouds podling from Apache Incubator because ... The vote will be open for 72 hours, until 5pm PDT on Monday, September 23rd. : http://jclouds.incubator.apache.org/: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PODLINGNAMESEARCH-37: http://apache.markmail.org/thread/q6sqwspp55sjtk2v: https://wiki.apache.org/jclouds/Bylaws: http://markmail.org/thread/vnnvej3q7sla3btl: https://wiki.apache.org/jclouds/GraduationCharter: http://apache.markmail.org/thread/55d6vle5be43gwtv
