Fopdev committers,

The following message has come from Berin in his (new) capacity as XML PMC Chair. If any committers have any further questions on this, let me know and I will see what I can fish out of the discussionon [EMAIL PROTECTED] Most of it has taken place, I think, on [EMAIL PROTECTED], but I'm sure not everyone is receiving [EMAIL PROTECTED]

Msg posted to pmc@ as there is already enough noise on 4 x general@
lists on this!

Given the current charter requires a majority vote of all committers in
xml for this to go ahead, we really need your help to get this vote done.

I've forwarded this to security-dev, and Neil has forwarded to Xerces-J.
 If the appropriate people could forward to their -dev lists and tally
the votes against active committer totals that would be fantastic.

I'm purposely holding back the vote on the charter until this is done,
as I want to see how effective this process is now.  Should we maybe
thing about going down the Jakarta route and making the vote for
sub-projects a PMC vote, but with the right of committers to -1 and then
call for a full community vote?

On behalf of the other committers, I would like to ask the XML PMC to consider accepting XMLBeans into the XML project. We expect to address
any remaining concerns that the community has during the incubation period.

Dear committers,

as outlined in the charter (section 6.2), and in
collaboration with the Incubator

Subject to:

 - relicensing of the XMLBeans codebase using the ASL 1.1 license
 - copyright transfer from BEA to the ASF as described in [1]
 - each initial XMLBeans committer sending in a Contributor's License
 - furthermore, I would strongly suggest the XMLBeans code should only
be moved into Apache CVS once the outstanding LGPL & BEA-licensed code
dependency issues have been resolved.

Please cast your vote on the acceptance of the XMLBeans project for
incubation in the XML.Apache project:

----------- vote ballot ----------

Name: ________________

  [  ]  I agree with and support this proposal (+1)
  [  ]  Indifference (-1 < x < +1)
  [  ]  I object and suggest a way to address my reservations (-1)


----------- 8< ----------- 8< ----------- 8< -----------

If the outcome of this vote is positive and CLA forms are collected,
work can start on creating the necessary infrastructure resources. I'm
on holiday from the 12th until the 26th of July and won't be able to
help out coordination-wise, but here's a quick list of the top of my head:

 - collection and creation of initial committer accounts, using the
following template:


Subject: Apache account requests for XMLBeans project incubation

 <repeat times="number of committers">
   Full name:                ...
   Preferred userid:         ...
   Forwarding email address: ...
   Unix group:               xml

 - creation of xml-xmlbeans CVS module
     - also configure in ViewCVS
     - commit mails -> [EMAIL PROTECTED]
     - add initial committers to the avail list

 - mailing lists:
     - .qmail-xml-xmlbeans-cvs forward to [EMAIL PROTECTED]

 - list archiving:
     - mbox ->
     - Eyebrowse setup

- Bugzilla project creation and set up of notification mails

- grant some committers access to xml-site module for website content

 - setup automated checkout of xml-site/targets/xml-beans on daedalus
for website (or give someone access to daedalus for manual website

- send a big thank you to infrastructure@

That's about all I can think of ATM.


[1] IIRC, there was a form for this as well, but I cannot locate it anymore
