Lens is a platform that enables multi-dimensional queries in a unified way
over datasets stored in multiple warehouses. Lens integrates Apache Hive
with other data warehouses by tiering them together to form logical data
cubes.

Lens has been incubating since 2014-10-10.

Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:

 We had discussion about "where is Lens with respect to graduation" on dev
 mailing list. Most of PPMC and mentors feel that Lens is ready to
 graduate.  http://s.apache.org/rYP

 We intend to start preparing the graduation vote, following the
 discussion.

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
aware of?

 NONE
