[VOTE] Avro as TLP?
Please vote as to whether you think Avro should become a top-level
Apache project, as mentioned previously on this list.

I've included below a draft board resolution.  It lists all current
committers as the initial members of the project management committee
(PMC) and Matt Massie as the initial chair.

Does the Hadoop PMC support sending this proposal on to the board?

Thanks,

Doug
