Incubator PMC report for January 2014

The Apache Incubator is the entry path into the ASF for projects and
codebases wishing to become part of the Foundation's efforts.

There are 36 podlings currently under incubation.

* Community

  New IPMC members:

    (None)

  People who left the IPMC:

    (None)

* New Podlings

  * DataFu makes it easier to solve data problems using Hadoop and
    higher level languages based on it.

* Graduations

  (None)

* Releases

  The following releases were made since the last Incubator report:

    Dec 16 Apache Sirona 0.1-incubating
    Dec 17 Apache Spark 0.8.1-incubating

  It took 6-21 days for the third IPMC vote to arrive.

    Release                               VOTE start  Third IMPC +1  Days
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    Apache Sirona 0.1-incubating          Nov 26      Dec 16         21
    Apache Spark 0.8.1-incubating         Dec 11      Dec 17         6

* IP Clearance

  * Apache Celix received the donation of a shared memory implementation of
    the remote service admin specification from Thales Nederland B.V..

* Miscellaneous

  * The initiative to reform release voting yielded multiple breakthroughs
    during this report cycle.

    1. An experimental framework was approved whereby PPMC votes become
       binding for releases after the first if a release checklist is
       completed by the PPMC and approved by a Mentor.
    2. A concise checklist of release requirements was assembled, where
       each item is required by either ASF-wide policy or Incubator policy.
    3. Consensus was built for a controlled regime for relaxing policy on
       incubating releases under appropriate circumstances, potentially
       reducing the number of release candidates we force podlings to cycle
       through.

    All of this was achieved with significantly fewer emails compared with
    past reform attempts.

  * Exercising the new regime for controlled relaxation of policy, a bugfix
    release by Spark (0.8.1) which bundled jar files was approved by the
    IPMC after the podling presented a roadmap to eliminating them in the
    next minor point release (0.9).

Aurora

Aurora is a service scheduler used to schedule jobs onto Apache Mesos.

Aurora has been incubating since 2013-10-01.

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

  1. First release.
  2. Establish a consistent development process and release rhythm.
  3. Expanding the community and adding new committers.

aware of?

  - None at this time.

How has the community developed since the last report?

  - Community members outside of Twitter are installing and testing the
    software, using the dev mailing list and IRC channel to offer feedback
    and seek help.
  - No new committers; still preparing for first release.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  - Development work has transitioned to Apache Review Board in the open;
    JIRA issues still need to be transferred.

Shepherd/Mentor notes:

  Justin Mclean (jmclean):

    Project is off to a good start with lots of activity on the mailing list
    and in JIRA. One of the Mentors (Jake Farrell) is very active and there
    are no issues that need attention.

--------------------
BatchEE

BatchEE is a JBatch implementation with few utilities modules.

BatchEE has been incubating since 2013-10-03.

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

  1. Release
  2. Decide if BatchEE keeps integration with other frameworks or not
     (camel, etc)
  3. Provide some more samples

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

  No

How has the community developed since the last report?

  Community itself is almost the same (but was holidays ;) but we start to
  get some enterprise users :).

How has the project developed since the last report?

  Integration with other project grown. Few bugfixes were done.

Date of last release:

  Not yet released.

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

Shepherd/Mentor notes:

  John Ament (johndament):

    BatchEE is a new podling, with a small team working on it currently.
    It's a fork of the RI for Java Batch from Java EE 7.  I think short term
    they should focus on getting a release out there to draw in community
    interest; which should help build the podling more and drive feature
    interest.

--------------------
Celix

Celix is an OSGi like implementation in C with a distinct focus on
interoperability between Java and C.

Celix has been incubating since 2010-11-02.

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

  1. Publish a new release (see below)

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

  None

How has the community developed since the last report?

  Together with the donation of a new Remote Services Admin we have added
  Bjoern Petri as committer. The work being done on the GSoC project is
  mostly finished but still needs some finishing up before it can be added
  to the repository.

  If the code donated by Bjoern is added to the project a new release will
  be made. In this release we will try to solve all remarks of the first
  release.

  A discussion concerning graduation has also been started, if this goes
  well, we want to start the vote on the Celix list and then ask the IPMC if
  Celix is ready to graduate.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  There is a new Remote Service Admin which can be used alongside the
  current one. There is also the GSoC project which can be added after the
  second release. Altogether most work has been done to be able to make a
  release. Issues have been solved/closed/updated etc.

Date of last release:

  16-12-2012


When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

  2014-01-03 Bjoern Petri elected as committer (still needs to be added to
             the Celix group).
  2013-01-07 Roman Shaposhnik joins as a mentor.
  2012-03-20 Pepijn elected as committer.

Shepherd/Mentor notes:

  Dave Fisher (wave):

    This podling is growing. They plan a release soon and let's see how that
    goes. When it comes time for graduation I have some concerns that this
    podling's community may be too small.

--------------------
log4cxx2

Logging for C++

log4cxx2 has been incubating since 2013-12-09.  It is a reboot of an
earlier, stalled logging project with a new collection of committers.

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

  1. Triage on old, pre-incubation issues in JIRA and reported mailing
     lists with an eye towards initial re-release blockers
  2. Solving those blockers on a minimal set of platforms to permit
     initial re-release.
  3. Reengaging former user community, many of whom left as previous
     incarnation became dormant.

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

  No.

How has the community developed since the last report?

  The committers are getting acquainted with each other and the foundation.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  This is our first report.

Date of last release:

  2008-04-03 was the official, pre-incubation 0.10.0

  Many post-0.10.0 commits exist on trunk which we intend to get out as
  0.11.x.

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

--------------------
MetaModel

MetaModel is a data access framework, providing a common interface for
exploration and querying of different types of datastores.

MetaModel has been incubating since 2013-06-12.

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

  1. More contributors to increase diversity of the community
  2. Make first release under ASF umbrella
  3. Set better guidelines for procedures by setting community by-laws

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

  None

How has the community developed since the last report?

  We're working on making the first release under the Apache umbrella
  available. A first release candidate was rejected in the vote for
  technical reasons, but these where fixed by the second release candidate
  and a few JIRA entries to improve build-time validation.

  Various requests and questions are coming in through the dev mailing list.
  We believe this activity will further accelerate when our first release is
  available.

  We've been drafting a set of community by-laws, but open questions and
  discussions are still not settled, so this is only work-in-progress.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  We've implemented various performance and concurrency related improvements
  to the working of MetaModel.

  Test suites have been improved to work properly on different locales,
  operating systems etc.

  Many minor changes to build configuration, license files etc., as a result
  of working towards a release.

Date of last release:

  None

Shepherd/Mentor notes:

  Roman Shaposhnik (rvs):

    In general project seem to be on the right track with a healthy amount
    of community interaction happening over the mailing list and a strong
    desire to do a release. Two issues have caught my attention though:

    1. I am not quite sure what motivated a strong drive towards having
       by-laws this early in the game. In my experience the focus on by-laws
       can, at times, put a damping factor on community growth. IOW, what
       I've seen in the past is that communities try to come up with by-laws
       when the usual process of consensus building starts to fail. Nothing
       actionable here for the project -- just keep this in mind.
    2. The JIRA feels a bit empty for the project that has been developing
       for more than 6 month (grand total of 33 issues). At the same time
       the number of commits in the Git repo is on par with the development
       pace. What it tells me is that there's no strong correlation between
       JIRAs and commits. This raises a red flag of whether all of the
       changes that are committed get a proper community vetting before they
       go in.  I couldn't find any traces of the review requests either:
         https://reviews.apache.org/groups/metamodel/
       This in my opinion is a pretty big concern for the project.

--------------------
ODF Toolkit

Java modules that allow programmatic creation, scanning and manipulation of
OpenDocument Format (ISO/IEC 26300 == ODF) documents

ODF Toolkit has been incubating since 2011-08-01.

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

  1. Grow the community in terms of committers
  2. Have regular releases
  3. Decide if we would like to be a top level project or join an existing
     project

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

  -

How has the community developed since the last report?

  We received patches and issue reports from users, but no new developers.
  We're discussing on our dev list an initiative to take advantage of our
  next release to publicize the project and attract new developers.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  Minor issues have been fixed. We are also working on an adapter for the
  POI API that is not yet committed but will be soon. We are planning to
  have a release this month.

Shepherd/Mentor notes:

  John Ament (johndament):

    ODF Toolkit has been incubating for a long time.  Activity on their list
    is in frequent, but active enough that it still is running.  Considering
    what the project is, I think the best resolution for this podling is to
    graduate as a sub project under something like OpenOffice or POI.

--------------------
Olingo

Apache Olingo provides libraries which enable developers to implement
OData producers and OData consumers. While starting with an initial
code base implementing OData version 2.0 it is also a clear goal to
start implementing a library for OData 4.0 once the OData standard is
published at OASIS. The focus within the community is currently on the
Java technology but it is up to the community to discuss if other
environments find interest.

Olingo has been incubating since 2013-07-08.

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

  1. Grow community
  2. n/a
  3. n/a

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

  - n/a

How has the community developed since the last report?

  - Committers actively worked together to make the first release. Effort
    was coordinated by Jira and mailing list.
  - Committers actively working on making the second release. Effort is
    coordinated by Jira and mailing list.
  - Committers are in mailing list contact with mentors and infrastructure
    to extend infrastructure setup (e.g. Wiki).
  - Community has grown: Additional committers, new contributors (can be
    seen via Jira Issues, Mailing List), but the community is still
    homogeneous which needs to change for graduation

How has the project developed since the last report?

  - There is currently no feature development for OData 2.0 (stabilization
    phase for making the second release)
  - Documentation on web site is refactored and growing
  - There is feature development for OData 4.0 in a new repository. This new
    development will not be part of the second release

Spark

Spark is an open source system for fast and flexible large-scale data
analysis. Spark provides a general purpose runtime that supports
low-latency execution in several forms.

Spark has been incubating since 2013-06-19.

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

  1. Pretty much the only issue remaining is importing our old JIRA
     into Apache (https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-6419).
     Unfortunately, although we've been trying to do this since June,
     we haven't had much luck with it, as the INFRA people who tried
     to help out have been busy and software version numbers have
     often been incompatible (we have a hosted JIRA instance from
     Atlassian that they regularly update). We believe that there are
     some export dumps on that issue that are compatible with the ASF's
     current JIRA version, but if we can't get this resolved in the
     next 2-3 weeks, we may simply forgo importing our old issues.

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

  It would be really great to get a contact who can sit down with us
  and do the JIRA import. We're not sure who from INFRA leads these
  tasks.

How has the community developed since the last report?

  We made a Spark 0.8.1 release in December, and are working on a new
  major release (0.9) this month. We added two new committers, Aaron
  Davidson and Kay Ousterhout.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  We made the Spark 0.8.1 release mentioned above, with a number of
  new features detailed at
  http://spark.incubator.apache.org/releases/spark-release-0-8-1.html.
  We also have some exciting features coming up in Spark 0.9, such as
  support for Scala 2.10, parallel machine learning libraries in
  Python, and improvements to Spark Streaming.

  There are no formal issues blocking graduation. The issue of off-list
  discussions that was identified by the mentors a few month ago has been
  addressed. While off-list discussions are still happening, (intermediate)
  results of those discussions are now regularly brought back to the list.

  While not a formal requirement, the current plan is to do a second
  incubator release before graduation to
  a) release the changes that accumulated while the first release was
     prepared and to
  b) have a release prepared by another RM.

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

  No.

How has the community developed since the last report?

  Marvin Humphrey agreed to mentor VXQuery and the project now has 3 active
  mentors.
