Hi Chris,

Thanks for the vote of confidence on the Tez community. Will wait for other folks to chime in the next couple of days and
get started on the listed steps towards graduation.

Hey Guys,

So at first I was thinking - what is ChrisD talking about - Tez hasn't
really been active/etc., and why does he think the community is ready
for graduation.

Then I checked the mail archives:


Jun 2014 68
May 2014 62
Apr 2014 49
Mar 2014 59
Feb 2014 82
Jan 2014 52
Dec 2013 35
Nov 2013 59
Oct 2013 51

[X] Good mailing list activity, increasing from prior months

Then I checked private and for additions of new people:
(IPMC and/or PPMC and/or ASF members only)

Jun 2014 13
May 2014 34

[X] Over 7 new committers and PPMC members added (minor nit on bulk
VOTE'ing, but no biggie).

Looking for releases, I see 3 releases:


* tez-0.2.0-incubating/
* tez-0.3.0-incubating/
* tez-0.4.0-incubating/

And here:


I see 3 releases (should probably delete everything in dist.apache.org but

[X] Made releases, > 1 in the incubator.

Looking at the mailing list traffic, there is also good discussion and
answering of
user questions, etc. I think the project *IS* ready to graduate. My bad!

At least I made up for it by making a convincing case for you guys to
graduate ;)
Great job guys.

Next steps are:

1. Decide who will be VP (Hitesh?)
2. Draft up graduation resolution (search mail-archives for old ones, grab
one e.g., that I used for Spark and adapt it)
3. Wait 48-72 hours on this DISCUSS thread and see if people think we're
4. Once 48-72 hours done and #2 done, and #1 done, [VOTE] thread on
and 48-72 hours later, if successful, then
5. [VOTE] thread on general@i.a.o CC dev@tez and IPMC VOTE on graduation
6. If successful, then should be in time for the July 2014 board meeting.
