-------- Original Message -------- Subject: Apache Board Meeting, June 20, 2007 (new officers!) Date: Wed, 20 Jun 2007 12:45:06 -0700 From: Greg Stein Reply-To: members@ To: members@ Hi all, Today, the newly-elected Board met for the first time. After we got done with our regular series of project reviews and other reports, we elected a new slate of executive officers. I'm happy to present that list: Jim Jagielski, Chairman Justin Erenkrantz, President J Aaron Farr, Treasurer Sam Ruby, Exec VP and Secretary Welcome guys to your new offices! We also established new three projects: * Apache Quetzalcoatl: this springs mod_python and related bits out of the HTTPD project into its own TLP. Gregory Trubetskoy is its Chair. * Apache Wicket: this is a light webapp framework for Java, graduating from the Incubator into its own TLP. Martijn Dashorst is the new Chair. * Apache Commons: this is the venerable Apache Jakarta Commons, now spun out into its own TLP, with Torsten Curdt as its Chair. Finally, we swapped a couple PMC Chairs: * Will Glass-Hussin replaces Henning Schmiedehausen as the Velocity Chair * David Sean Taylor replaces Santiago Gala as the Portals Chair That's it for this month. Please feel free to forward this to any public/private forum as you see fit. If you have any questions, then please don't hesitate to ask myself or any other Director or officer. Cheers, -g
From this rather obscure blog, I would like to congratulate all Wicket community members with this remarkable feat! Furthermore, I like to thank the Board of the Apache Software Foundation for the trust they invested in us. We will not disappoint!
I personally would like to thank Wicket's mentors:
- Alex Karasulu (whose birthday coincidentally is today... what a better gift could you receive). Thanks for bringing us on board!
- Upayavira, who made the transition even run smoother than thought possible. Thanks for guiding us and I hope you'll stay for a long time with our project!
- Bertrand Delacretaz, thank you for your help, votes and advise. We will miss your involvement, but will certainly see you in the future!
- Sylvain Wallez, also big thanks for helping and guiding us. I hope Wicket is still working within Joost
Finally, congratulations to the new officers, PMC Chairs and the other two new projects: Apache Quetzalcoatl and Apache Commons! Welcome to the club!
