Metro

22 Sep 2004

Establish the Apache Metro Project

 WHEREAS, the Board of Directors deems it to be in the best
 interests of the Foundation and consistent with the
 Foundation's purpose to establish a Project Management
 Committee charged with the creation and maintenance of an
 open-source software platform supporting secure component
 publication, discovery, composition, deployment, and
 management, for distribution at no charge to the public.

 NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that a Project Management
 Committee (PMC), to be known as the "Apache Metro PMC", be and
 hereby is established pursuant to Bylaws of the Foundation; and
 be it further

 RESOLVED, that the "Apache Metro PMC" be and hereby is
 responsible for the creation and maintenance of a software
 platform supporting component publication, discovery,
 composition, deployment, and management, based on software
 licensed to the Foundation; and be it further

 RESOLVED, that the office of "Vice President, Apache Metro" be
 and hereby is created, the person holding such office to serve
 at the direction of the Board of Directors as the chair of the
 Apache Metro PMC, and to have primary responsibility for
 management of the projects within the scope of responsibility
 of the Apache Metro PMC; and be it further

 RESOLVED, that the persons listed immediately below be and
 hereby are appointed to serve as the initial members of the
 Apache Metro PMC:

   Timothy Bennett        (tbennett@apache.org)
   J Aaron Farr           (farr@apache.org)
   Cameron Fieber         (cfieber@apache.org)
   Niclas Hedhman         (niclas@apache.org)
   Alex Karasulu          (akarasulu@apache.org)
   Stephen McConnell      (mcconnell@apache.org)
   Andreas Oberhack       (oberhack@apache.org)

 NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that Niclas Hedhman be
 and hereby is appointed to the office of Vice President, Apache
 Metro, to serve in accordance with and subject to the direction
 of the Board of Directors and the Bylaws of the Foundation
 until death, resignation, retirement, removal or
 disqualification, or until a successor is appointed; and be it
 further

 RESOLVED, that the initial Apache Metro PMC be and hereby is
 tasked with the creation of a set of bylaws intended to
 encourage open development and increased participation in the
 Apache Metro community.

 This proposed resolution resulted in an extended discussion
 regarding Metro, Avalon and Excaliber.  The general agreement
 was that creating a TLP in an effort to "force" the projects
 and committers to behave was unwise and un-deserved.  Forcing
 Metro into Incubation was discussed, but no decision was
 made on that topic.  Also discussed was the presense of a
 certain individual on the proposed PMC, and the fragmenting
 and unhealthy environment he tends to bring to projects.

 It was unanimously agreed that the Metro Project proposal
 would be rejected.  Greg was to send an Email to the Avalon
 PMC (including any proposed Metro PMC members) indicating the
 board's very strong direction that, regarding Metro, that
 including Stephen McConnell on any proposed PMC would cause
 serious reservations within the board.  To the Avalon PMC,
 the email would describe the board's serious concern that
 Avalon itself is being ignored, despite the fact that
 other ASF projects (eg: Cocoon and James) are dependent
 on it; Avalon needs to perform it's duties or find another
 ASF project (eg: Excalibur) to "take over", or some other
 viable solution.  Forking off Metro and leaving Avalon
 in its present state is not a solution.

 It was also unanimously agreed that Greg's letter would be
 him speaking *as* the board and would, in the strongest
 terms, clearly express the board's growing dissatisfaction
 with near-constant issues with Avalon.
