Subject [DISCUSS] Board resolution for Nutch as TLP
Date Fri, 09 Apr 2010 16:52:09 GMT
Hi,

I was told that the next step is to come up with the proposed Board
resolution and vote it among committers. Here's the proposed text
(shameless copy&paste from Tika and Mahout proposals).

IMPORTANT NOTE: I removed from the members of the PMC those existing
Nutch committers that haven't been active for more than 1 year, with the
intention of moving them to Emeritus status. If any one of these people
feels "left out" and would like to become an active committer in the
project, please let us know and we will gladly welcome you back :)

The text of the resolution follows. Committers, please read it and
optionally comment on the salient points of the text, the rest is
boilerplate. If there's an overall consensus I will call for a formal
vote to submit this proposal to the Board.
