Subject: [VOTE] Move POI to TLP

Hi All

After lots of discussion within POI, and Jakarta in general, we think POI
is ready to graduate to its own TLP. Thanks to the magic of ApacheCon,
lots of people have been on-hand to help finalise the proposal for this,
which is attached below.

So, now is the time to vote on the proposal:
[ ] +1 I support the proposal
[ ] +0 I don't care
[ ] -1  I'm opposed to the proposal because...

Voting will close in one week.

       interests of the Foundation and consistent with the
       Foundation's purpose to establish a Project Management
