Subject [VOTE] Final Board Resolution Draft
Date Wed, 15 Mar 2017 19:24:37 GMT
Please vote 1 for OK, -1 for not OK, and 0 for neutral.  The vote will be open for 72 hours.

The incubating Apache Metron community believes it is time to graduate to TLP.

Apache Metron entered incubation in December of 2015.  Since then, we've overcome technical
challenges to remove Category X dependencies, and made 3 releases.  Our most recent release
contains binary convenience artifacts. We are a very helpful and engaged community, ready
to answer all questions and feedback directed to us via the user list.  Through our time in
incubation we've added a number of committers and promoted some of them to PPMC membership.
 We are actively pursuing others. While we do still have issues to address raised by means
of the maturity model, all projects are ongoing processes, and we believe we no longer need
the incubator to continue addressing these issues.

To inform the discussion, here is some basic project information:
