Board report April - June 2010
Summary ======= The Apache Harmony community remains healthy, and has recently released new milestone builds. The lack of a JCK continues to be an issue for Harmony, with no end in sight. Development and Releases ======================== The Harmony community continues to publish regular milestones from the 5.0 SE and 6.0 SE branches. On June 1st we published Apache Harmony 5.0 Milestone 14 and Apache Harmony 6.0 Milestone 2. These are primarily bug fix releases with about 42 JIRAs being fixed between them. In addition to code fixing, there are a steady stream of build system improvements being committed; and some experimentation talking place on a separate, temporary branch to enable community comment before merging back to head. There is also continued work on "Harmony Select", which is a headless runtime profile derived from the existing code. Traffic on the developer mailing list is steady, representing the increased maturity of the code. People remain responsive to questions and comments. Community ========= There were no changes to the Harmony PMC or committers during the last reporting period, and there are now 50 committers of which ~9 were active this period. The Harmony community includes Google Summer of Code participants who are making a good contribution to the code and community.
