Allura

Forge software for the development of software projects, including source
control systems, issue tracking, discussion, wiki, and other software
project management tools.

Allura has been incubating since 2012-06-25.

Graduation discussions are currently ongoing.

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?

  Two talks about Allura were accepted for ApacheCon.  A few small patches
  from new contributors.  A guide for new contributors was written.  One
  person has expressed interest in participating in the GSoC with Allura.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  A second release was made recently (Feb 25).  Many new features and fixes
  continue to land, including a new user profile page design.

Shepherd/Mentor notes:

  Justin Mclean (jmclean):

    IPMC has voted for graduation and just started a vote on
    general@incubator.

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

BatchEE projects aims to provide a JBatch implementation (aka JSR352) and a
set of useful extensions for this specification.

BatchEE has been incubating since 2013-10-03.

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

  1. Build a Community
     We really need to work on this. Mark Struberg will hold a talk 
     about BatchEE on JAX in early May 2014 in Mainz

  2. Ship stable releases
     This looks good so far. We are pretty close on getting 
     a first release out.

  3. Establish an ASF culture. 
     We also need to work on this front. The committer circly does fine
     on the technical side but we really need to raise attention about 
     the importance of structural things like not pulling in too many
     foreign dependencies and shipping board reports in time.


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

  None yet. We still have to work on a few things but nothing critical.  I
  will make sure we raise issues if we cannot solve them.


How has the community developed since the last report?

  The community does not yet grow much in terms of committers.  There are
  quite a few interested users though and the project gets used in
  production projects already.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  We have missed reporting for 2 consecutive months due to time constraints
  of the involved leaders. We will report the next 3 month to show our
  commitment

Date of last release: 

  none yet. We are preparing to release 0.1-incubating within 
  the next 2 month.

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?
  
  We still have the initial set of committers.

--------------------
DataFu

DataFu provides a collection of Hadoop MapReduce jobs and functions in
higher level languages based on it to perform data analysis. It provides
functions for common statistics tasks (e.g. quantiles, sampling), PageRank,
stream sessionization, and set and bag operations. DataFu also provides
Hadoop jobs for incremental data processing in MapReduce.

DataFu has been incubating since 2014-01-05.

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

  1. Building ASF community
  2. Release
  3. Remaining incubator paperwork

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?

  More contributions have been received from Jian Wang, who has also 
  been voted in as the newest committer and PPMC member.  A talk
  is planned at the Apache Pig meetup to be held on March 14th.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  Three JIRAs have been opened, four have been closed.  The project has 
  migrated from Ant to the Gradle build system, which will make it easier 
  to add libraries for Hive, Crunch, etc.

Date of last release: 

  None. Second month of incubation.

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

DeviceMap

Apache DeviceMap is a data repository containing device information, images
and other relevant information for all sorts of mobile devices, e.g.
smartphones and tablets. While the focus is initially on that data, APIs
will also be created to use and manage it.

DeviceMap has been incubating since 2012-01-03.

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

  1. Make a release 
  2. Get more contributors 
  3. Grow the community

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

  DeviceMap's activity is very low and has actually gone down in the last
  few months.

  The next step is probably for the podling to consider whether it can
  reasonably expect to grow a community and get more active, or whether it's
  not active enough to graduate as an Apache project.

How has the community developed since the last report?

  No changes.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  Minimal changes only.

Date of last release:

  None yet.

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

  May 2013

Shepherd/Mentor notes:

  Roman Shaposhnik (rvs):

    I will agree that the community activity is very low and the trend is
    not positive. I would encourage mentors to probe around the question of
    potential retirement.

--------------------
Apache: Project Drill

Description:

Apache Drill is a distributed system for interactive analysis of large-scale
datasets that is based on Google's Dremel. Its goal is to efficiently
process nested data, scale to 10,000 servers or more and to be able to
process petabyes of data and trillions of records in seconds.

Drill has been incubating since 2012-08-11.

Three Issues to Address in Move to Graduation:

  1. Continue to attract new developers and and early users with a variety
     of skills and viewpoints
  2. Continue to develop deeper community skills and knowledge by building
     additional releases
  3. Demonstrate community robustness by rotating project tasks among
     multiple project members
 
Issues to Call to Attention of PMC or ASF Board:

  None
 
How community has developed since last report:

  Community awareness and participation were strengthened through a meeting
  of the Bay Area Apache Drill User Group in San Jose sponsored by Yahoo!
  This event expanded participation to include many new to Drill and
  particularly those interested as potential users (analysts rather than
  developers).  

  Speakers included Drill project mentor Ted Dunning from MapR, Data
  Scientist Will Ford from Alpine Data Labs, new Drill committer Julian Hyde
  from HortonWorks and Aman Sinha, MapR Drill engineer.

  Additional events include:

  • Two new Drill committers accepted appointment: Julian Hyde (HortonWorks)
    and Tim Chen (Microsoft).
  • Drill has a new project mentor, Sebastian Schelter.
 
  Mailing list discussions:

  Subscriptions to the Drill mailing lists have risen to 399 on dev list and
  308 on the user list and 508 uniques across both lists.  There has been
  active and increasing participation in discussions on the developer
  mailing list, including new participants and developers. Participation on
  the user list is growing although still small; mainly activity takes place
  on developer mailing list.

  Tuesday mornings 9am Pacific Time to keep core developers in contact in
  realtime despite geographical separation.

  Community stays in touch through @ApacheDrill Twitter ID, and by postings
  on various blogs including Apache Drill User http://drill-user.org/ which
  has had several updates and through international presentations at
  conferences.

  Viability of community is also apparent through active participation in
  the Bay Area Apache Drill User group meeting in early November, which has
  grown to 440 members.

  Sample presentations:

  • “How to Use Drill” by Ted Dunning and Will Ford, Bay Area Apache Drill
    Meet-up 24 February

--------------------
Kalumet

Kalumet a complete environment manager and deployer including J2EE
environments (application servers, applications, etc), softwares, and
resources.

Kalumet has been incubating since 2011-09-20.

Community Developement:

  Apache Kalumet 0.6-incubating version has been released.

  We are in the way of promoting the documentation on the website.

Project Development:

  We are preparing the 0.7-incubating release.

  Local branches have been created containing:

  - new model and REST API
  - new webconsole (remove of Echo framework)

Before Graduation (most important issues to address in the move towards
graduation):

  - The documentation has been updated and aligned with the 0.6-incubating
    release. The documentation will be promoted on the website and "linked"
    in announcement e-mails.
  - The 0.7-incubating release will fix the graduation issue, especially in
    term of license (removal of Echo2 framework for the UI).

Post Graduation:

  - Kalumet scripts. It's the extension of the "software" concept globally
    to all Kalumet resources. It will allow users to create custom
    deployment/update plan, with a set of fine-grained steps.

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

  None so far. 

Date of the last release: 2013-11-25

  No new committer or PMC

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

Logging for C++

log4cxx2 has been incubating since 2013-12-09.

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

  1. We probably need to decide what's an acceptable platform/compiler list,
     sort out any remaining hiccups, and then move towards a release.
  2. We need to release 0.11.0 as maintenance release.
  3. We need to make a broader use of the ASF infrastructure (notably the
     CI, as well as improved management of the Jira site - notably with
     triaging), and establish a roadmap for the next releases.

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?

  The committers are still getting acquainted with each other and the
  foundation. There's only little need for support currently, but
  from time to time it looks like "old users" notify about themselves.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  We have applied a lot of bug fixes which were collected in the last
  years in JIRA and fit to a maintenance release, tested on different
  platforms and started to discuss about changes in the used build
  system because of different problems.

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.

MRQL

MRQL is a query processing and optimization system for large-scale,
distributed data analysis, built on top of Apache Hadoop, Hama, and Spark.

MRQL has been incubating since 2013-03-13.

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

  1. increase adoption, expand user community, and increase user list
     activity
  2. recruit more developers, committers, and PMCers
  3. have at least one more incubator release

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?

  Nothing to report. No new developers. No new committers.

Shepherd/Mentor notes:

  Roman Shaposhnik (rvs):

    A reasonably sized community. Given that it has been incubating for
    about a year now, I'd encourage graduation activity. A few more releases
    would be a good first step.

--------------------
Phoenix

Phoenix is an open source SQL query engine for Apache HBase, a NoSQL data
store. It is accessed as a JDBC driver and enables querying and managing
HBase tables using SQL.

Phoenix has been incubating since 12/11/2013.

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

  1) Perform initial release out of apache incubator followed up quickly by
     two new releases
  2) Make our customers successful and prove value of Phoenix+HBase over
     other alternatives
  3) Attract new committers to the project

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

  We've been waiting more than two months for our Github issues to be
  imported into our Apache JIRA.

How has the community developed since the last report?

  Lots of user/dev traffic on email list and general interest. Received a
  nice patch from an external contributor to replace our CSV loader with the
  Apache Commons CSV loader that's under development.

  No new committers.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  * IP Clearance is complete.
  * Vote is in progress on dev list for on our first release. Prior RC was
    sunk due to the license and notice files not being correct.
  * Working in parallel toward 3.0 and 4.0 releases as well.

Date of last release:

  No release yet.

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

    A great community.

--------------------
Storm

Storm is a distributed, fault-tolerant, and high-performance realtime
computation system that provides strong guarantees on the processing of
data.

Storm has been incubating since 2013-09-18.

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

  1. Growing the community and adding Committers/PPMC Members
  2. Release on a regular basis
  3. Lower the user/developer entry barrier by improving documentation,
    examples, and integration options.

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 have voted in 2 additional Committers/PPMC Members. Since our first
  Apache release, community and committer involvement has increased and we
  hope to continue that trend. 

How has the project developed since the last report?

  We successfully executed our first Apache release. We have migrated the
  storm-project.net website and github wiki to the podling website. To
  support our initial and subsequent releases, we also migrated the Storm
  build system from Leiningen to Apache Maven.

Date of last release: 

  2014-02-22

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

  2014-03-04

--------------------
Streams

Apache Streams is a lightweight server for ActivityStreams.

Streams has been incubating since 2012-11-20.

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

  1. Growing the active developer community  
  2. Making a secondary incubator release
  3. Develop concrete use cases and providing tutorials for users

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?

  Since the last report we have admitted a new committer Carol Hansen, who
  has provided an interface for streams. We have started discussions on
  modules to possible incorporate into Streams, which Steve Blackmon has
  spearheaded. We have also received pull requests from outside developers
  and started a migration from svn to git. Discussions have also begun on
  schema clarification which is a pressing issue as the project becomes
  standardized.  

How has the project developed since the last report?

  A substantial commit was made by Steve Blackmon including a Twitter
  Firehose attachment and a Apache Storm. It has laid the ground work for
  additional attachments. A Lucene connector and Elastic Search connector
  are being planned.

Date of last release: 

  2013-01-09

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

  2014-01-14 (Carol Hansen)

  No

How has the community developed since the last report?

  Some committers have presented Tajo project in some conferences and
  meetups.  Especially, Keuntae Park, one of the committers, will present
  Tajo in ApacheCon.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  We have resolved more than 200 issues since the last report.  There have
  been real users of Tajo project.  They are giving many feedbacks obtained
  from real use cases.  We are improving Tajo from their feedbacks.
  Recently, we have started the works on multi-tenancy.

Wave

A wave is a hosted, live, concurrent data structure for rich communication.
It can be used like email, chat, or a document.

Wave has been incubating since 2010-12-04.

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

  1. Make a release
  2. Expand the community
  3. Decide on future path (application framework, or web application)

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?

  Around the time of the last report, there was discussion on the list about
  shutting down the project due to a lack of activity.  Since then, we have
  had 3 new developers submit patches adding new features to Wave, pointing
  out bugs, and picking up older features that stalled before completion.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  Several major patches adding support for MongoDB, full text search, and
  date filtering to Wave have been submitted for review.
  Some of the older ideas (e.g. the email bridge robot) have been picked up
  by new developers.

Date of last release: 

  N/A

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

  The last 2 committers were elected around 30th June 2013
