Hi all, In the four and a half years that Apache SINGA (incubating) has been a part of the Apache incubator, the community has grown, diversified, and adapted to the Apache Way. We believe that the project is ready to graduate to a TLP.
As a community, we have discussed  and voted  to graduate to a TLP, we have worked through the maturity model , notified the IPMC that we have the intention to graduate  and proposed PMC chair . Please see the draft resolution appended below and provide any comments or feedback you have on it. We would like to continue the graduation process and hereby ask you all for your opinion on this. The discussion is open for 72 hours, after which we will start a [VOTE] on graduation here. Thanks, --moaz on behalf of the Apache SINGA PPMC  https://lists.apache.org/thread.html/fd2fe639f3314ff22d2e47d39bd6d4126d61d10e8628fa26f71ef01d@%3Cdev.singa.apache.org%3E  https://lists.apache.org/thread.html/cb40b73b3fd685b44a129601abd5967e4150db245b3fc6552f106faf@%3Cdev.singa.apache.org%3E  https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/SINGA/Maturity+model+assessment  https://lists.apache.org/thread.html/5b5ebefe705084e0a9d67cfaf56f17ff27518273366f8088be19273e@%3Cgeneral.incubator.apache.org%3E  https://lists.apache.org/thread.html/2903ea94da1b862acf8d706dd4f7cd9ecbc434166d4381d170be731f@%3Cprivate.singa.apache.org%3E Proposed Resolution for the Apache SINGA project for the ASF Board: X.
