Incubator PMC report for March 2015

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 currently 38 podlings undergoing incubation. Aurora is considering
graduation and two new podlings (AsterixDB and CommonsRDF) joined the
Incubator. Due to the low activity level, Kalumet community is thinking about
retiring Kalumet from the incubator.

It seems that Wave podling may need some help. It is not clear whether the
community is any closer to graduation or a different option needs to be
explored. The community indicated that they are close to producing their
first release. That said, the report has not been signed and we may want
to solicit additional cycles to help the community come up with a plan.

Incubator PMC voted in a new Chair (Ted Dunning) and a resolution has
been submitted to the board.

A discussion thread on Groovy entering incubation process has started.

provides storage, management, and query capabilities for large collections 
of semi-structured data.

AsterixDB has been incubating since 2015-02-28.

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

  1. Bootstrap podling
  2. Get SGA signed from UCI and others.
  3. Code drop and start actively using lists.

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

  No, just getting started.

How has the community developed since the last report?

  Right not working on everyone's account setup, code submission and 
  SGA and answering questions. Also getting discussion set up on mailing
  lists as they were recently created.


How has the project developed since the last report?

  No last report.

Date of last release:

  No Releases yet.

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

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

  1. Increase the community
  2. Improve our documentation

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

  No, activity is still moderate but the project code itself is stable


How has the community developed since the last report?

  We again got patches and had questions on the mailing list.  No new
  committer though.


How has the project developed since the last report?

  BatchEE already gets used in real world projects.  It is now also part of
  Apache TomEE-2.0 which will target JavaEE-7 as soon as we get the JavaEE
  TCK.  Please note that the TCK issue doesn't affect BatchEE as the JSR-352
  spec and TCK are licensed under ALv2 (txs IBM!).

  Mark Struberg presented BatchEE on ApacheCon and will speak about it again
  at JavaLandConf in Germany in March.

Date of last release:

  2014-08-09 batchee-0.2-incubating

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

  during inubation. We are still watching a contributor who pretty regularly
  ships small patches. Too less to pick him though.

Shepherd/Mentor notes:

  P. Taylor Goetz (ptgoetz):

    Email traffic on the podling dev@ list is relatively light, but the
    podling is producing releases regularly and all mentors are actively

--------------------
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.

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

  Due to the low activity level, Kalumet community is thinking about
  retiring Kalumet from the incubator.

Community Developement:

  Apache Kalumet 0.6-incubating version has been released.  However, due to
  some misunderstanding, the release vote has not been completed by 3 IPMC.
  Especially, some legal files issues have been raised.

  We are preparing a 0.6.1-incubating release to fix the legal files and
  submit to IPMC vote.

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

Project Development:

  We are preparing the 0.6.1-incubating (plan for December, 27) to fix the
  legal files issues raised on 0.6-incubating release and have a complete
  IPMC vote.

  We are preparing the 0.7-incubating release with the development changes.

  A new contributor has been identified and started to work on some issues
  and refactoring of the webconsole (mockup provided using Vaadin).

  Local branches have been created containing:

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

  These local branches will be merged on the 0.7-incubating branch (master).

  Before 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 as soon as the 0.6.1-incubating release has been
    voted.
  - 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.

  1. Create a release

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

  No.

  Not grown. However the project aims to become a sub project of Apache
  Logging again.  Community growth is not much a matter for this podling, as
  long as there are a few active contributors.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  Not much: Some approach has been made to push towards a release, but there
  wehere no updates regarding this approach for the last weeks. There
  currently doesn't seem to be any public development, though support is
  given, bugs are tracked and some patches have been applied.

distributed data analysis, built on top of Apache Hadoop, Hama, Spark, and
Flink.

MRQL has been incubating since 2013-03-13.

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

  1. Increase the number of active committers
  2. Increase adoption, expand user community, and increase user list
     activity

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?

  There were no new developers or new committers since our last report.  We
  are scheduled to present our project at ApacheCon North America in April.
  We hope that this presentation will attract new developers and users to
  our project and will open new opportunities for collaboration with other
  Apache projects.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  We have released our third release under Apache incubation. We have
  introduced a major extension to MRQL, called MRQL streaming, that supports
  continuous MRQL queries on streams of data. It currently works on Spark
  Streaming but we are planning to add support for Flink Streaming in the
  future.

Shepherd/Mentor notes:

  Drew Farris (drew): 
  
     One active mentor this month. There was some delay in obtaining
     sufficient PPMC/IPMC votes on this month's release. The project
     currently appears to have a single active developer, however I concur
     with the comments on potential community growth as indicated in the
     report. It looks like things are headed in the appropriate direction to
     attract new users and developers. Congratulations on the release.

--------------------

  3. First Apache release

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

TinkerPop

TinkerPop is a graph computing framework written in Java

TinkerPop has been incubating since 2015-01-16.

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

  1. We need to fully migrate to Apache infrastructure -- Migrating GitHub
     to JIRA is all that is left. This should happen next week.
  2. We need to get our SNAPSHOT deployment going -- AsciiDoc, JavaDoc, and
     SNAPSHOT jars. We have Jenkins works for us, just need to go the final
     mile.
  3. We need to release 3.0.0.M8. This will be a great milestone showing
     that TinkerPop is full-on Apache and producing like a well oiled
     machine.

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

  Everything has been going smoothly since the last report. While the
  processes are slower than we would like, they are moving along. Getting
  past the infrastructure migration will be a big win for us.

How has the community developed since the last report?

  We have not grown our committer pool. Currently it is still only Marko,
  Stephen, and James. Those individuals that were committers when TinkerPop
  was outside of Apache are currently providing pull requests. When we get
  past the infrastructure migration process, Stephen and I plan to recommend
  a few long term TinkerPop developers to join as committer pool and thus,
  grow the developer community.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  We have migrated from GitHub to ApacheGit. We have migrated our website
  from http://tinkerpop.com to http://tinkerpop.incubator.apache.org/. We
  have migrated our GitHub presence to Apache GitHub
  (https://github.com/apache/incubator-tinkerpop). We have prepped our
  source code with ASF preamble headers and have gutted all "non-Apache
  compliant" dependencies (save for one -- we are working with our mentors
  on this). Finally, on the development front, the developers are coding
  every day.

Shepherd/Mentor notes:

  Daniel Gruno (humbedooh):
  
    I would like to see more people invited to the project as committers.
    There are a few people with several patches against TinkerPop that could
    be valuable committers.

  John D. Ament (johndament):
  
    Agree with Daniel's comments.  Growth should be one of the key
    objectives.

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. Wave is very close to making its first release.  This is the top
     priority.
  2. The project needs to determine what the next few technical goals are.
  3. The project needs to attract more developers and users.

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

  None at this time.

How has the community developed since the last report?

  The community has been slow to develop.  There are still many people
  downloading and using the software, we have seen several bug reports and
  questions, but there has not been much contribution by new members.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  The code for the release has largely been finalized.  We believe that
  major legal and technical issues have been overcome.  Only a few finals
  steps remain. The project blieves that we are finally ready to make a
  release.

Zeppelin

A collaborative data analytics and visualization tool for distributed,
general-purpose data processing systems such as Apache Spark, Apache Flink,
etc.

Zeppelin has been incubating since 2014-12-23.

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

  1. SGA: IP clearance to be signed by NFLabs
  2. Finish migration to ASF infra: code and issues
  3. Complete PODLINGNAMESEARCH-64

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 see new people participate discussion on mailing list. We've received
  10 patches from 8 different people outside of the initial committers list,
  6 of them made their first contribution to Zeppelin.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  Support for Yarn and Mesos cluster are added, helped by new people.

  Work on separate interpreter process is in progress. Since it's changing
  internal a lot, we've discussed on dev@ mailing list, made PoC and then
  started implementation.

  The project is still waiting for the Software Grant from NFLabs legal
  department. NFLabs legal department is working on their internal process
  and expected to process SGA on early March.

  Proposal for ApacheCon is discussed in dev@ mailing list and wiki.

  Zeppelin is scheduled to be represented at ApacheCon North America in
  April.
