Incubator PMC report for October 2013

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

The Incubator grew to 39 podlings this month.

Mailing list activity on general@incubator went back up after light months in
July and August.

* Community

  New IPMC members:

    Tammo van Lessen
    Christian Müller

  People who left the IPMC:

    (None)

* New Podlings

  The Incubator has voted in four new podlings.

    * Aurora is a scheduler that provides all of the primitives necessary
      to quickly deploy and scale stateless and fault tolerant services in
      a datacenter.

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

    * BatchEE will be an ALv2-licensed implementation of the JBatch
      Specification which is defined as JSR-352 (for version 1.0).

    * Usergrid is a multi-tenant Backend-as-a-Service stack for web &
      mobile applications, based on RESTful APIs.

* Graduations

  The board has motions for the following:

    Chukwa
    jclouds

* Releases

  The following releases were made since the last Incubator report:

    Sep 11 Apache Ambari 1.2.5-incubating
    Sep 27 Apache Drill 1.0.0-m1-incubating
    Sep 24 Apache Spark 0.8.0-incubating
    Sep 25 Apache Sentry 1.2.0-incubating
    Sep 27 Apache Blur 0.2.0-incubating
    Oct 03 Apache Marmotta 3.1.0-incubating

  It took 1-8 days for the third IPMC vote to arrive.

* Miscellaneous

  * Allura's release candidate, which spent weeks waiting for IPMC feedback,
    was ultimately withdrawn after flaws were discovered.

  * Commons-monitoring seems likely to enter the Incubator.  The name is still
    under discussion.

  * A question about old Chukwa binary artifacts was resolved by reaffirming
    that the ASF makes no guarantees about convenience binaries.

  * The Incubator paid elevated attention to trademarks this month.

  * Old controversies about what criteria to apply when adding personnel to a
    proposed podling finally bit an unlucky live podling candidate (Usergrid).
    Hopefully it will never happen again.

--------------------
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. Grow the community
  2. Find more committers
  3. Publish a new 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?

  Several new people are working on additional code for the project. One person
  is working on a GSoC project, someone else is working on a new remote services
  protocol and is actively communicating over the list and using jira to post
  patches. Overall this is an increase in activity.

  The Native-OSGi project is still progressing, but rather slow. So there
  isn't anything new on that end. Celix is still the reference implementation,
  so I still expect this to be a great drive for Celix, for the code as well
  as the committers.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  As mentioned above, a student is working on a GSoC project and has
  implemented an Event Admin which will be included in Celix. Also a
  additional Remote Services implementation based on shared memory is being
  made.

  Work for a new release is still ongoing, the focus is slightly changing, one
  of the main users has requested a release. Since they don't use Win32, Win32
  support can be stripped from the release plan and postponed to a later
  release.

Date of last release:

  16-12-2012

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

  2013-01-07 Roman Shaposhnik joins as a mentor.
  2012-03-20 Pepijn elected as committer.

jclouds

A cloud agnostic library that enables developers to access a variety of
supported cloud providers using one API

jclouds has been incubating since 2013-04-29.

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

  The jclouds IPMC graduation vote passed on Sep 23rd, 2013.

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

  The jclouds community is looking forward to the next ASF Board meeting and
  hopes to be confirmed as a TLP.

How has the community developed since the last report?

  jclouds held its first committer vote as an Apache project and is proud to
  have Zack Shoylev on board!

How has the project developed since the last report?

  Our second incubating release was successful, with no issues related to ASF
  process or guidelines raised. The remaining trademark and IP issues have
  been resolved, and changes to the project website to bring it in line with
  ASF guidelines successfully made. The project also held a successful vote to
  adopt a set of Bylaws.

  With those items completed and a new committer on board, the jclouds PPMC
  proceeded to a graduation vote, which was passed and confirmed by the IMPC.
  Andrew Bayer was elected as the first project PMC chair and will thus be
  proposed as Vice President, Apache jclouds.

Date of last release:

  2013-08-28 (1.6.2-incubating)

--------------------
Marmotta

An Open Platform for Linked Data.

Marmotta has been incubating since 2012-12-03.

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

  1. Check whether Marmotta is a suitable name
     (https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PODLINGNAMESEARCH-39)
  2. PPMC & IPMC discussion and vote about gratuation
  3. Graduate tasks

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

  No such issues.

How has the community developed since the last report?

  * The NOTICE&LICENSE issues from last time are now properly solved.
  * The 3.1.0-incubating release was rescheduled to "after summer
    vacation time" and prepared in late September (released October 3rd).
  * Traffic on dev@marmotta.i.a.o was decreasing over the summer
    months, but is rising again in September during the preparation of
    the last release.
  * We are starting to get bug reports from non-committers in JIRA
    while traffic on users@marmotta.i.a.o is slowly evolving.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  * The 3.1.0-incubating release has been accepted on October 3rd.
  * The project was explicitly recommended for graduation after the
    last report in July (<http://s.apache.org/LIF8>)
    but we wanted to have another release before graduation to stabilize
    the release process and and have another check of the N&L by the
    incubator community.
  * Consequently the discussion graduation is being resumed after the
    release, trying the do it by the end of October if no new issues
    appear.

Date of last release:

  2013-10-03 (3.1.0-incubating)

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

  2013-05-21 (Raffaele Palmieri, committer&PPMC)
  2013-06-24 (Peter Ansell, committer&PPMC)

So no new committers and/or PPMC member since the last report.

  any special attention. Good luck guys! 

--------------------
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. Looking forward to setup CI builds under ASF infra

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?

  Ankit Kumar has taken the role of being release engineer for our first ASF
  release.

  A draft for bylaws for the project has been added to the wiki, we are
  discussing and finalizing the details.

  We are still not seeing a lot of involvement from new contributors, but
  expect that a release will give us more users and thus involvement from more
  newcomers.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  The primary focus has been on making our first release under ASF umbrella.
  The work is coming along well and we have a practical TODO list of less than
  5 points now.

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. Make the first release
  2. Work on documentation
  3. Grow community

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 working on making the 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. Jenkins, KEYS files ...).
  - Some committers have started with KEY signing. This is in progress to
    get all committers involved.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  - There is currently no feature development
  - Instead committers do concentrate on making the first release
  - A release candidate is available and discussed by community on mailing list
  - Release voting has started
  - Documentation on web site is growing and will be published as soon as the
    first release is available

  Apache Olingo goes direction first release. They allready use mailing list in
  a good way. It looks like they allready knows how to work with lazy consensus.
  The Mentors are active in a good way. Well, the documentation is poor at the
  moment. But the project knows this problem and work on it. Looking forward
  for a 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. Move JIRA over to Apache (still haven't gotten success from INFRA
     on this: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-6419)
  2. Add more committers under Apache process
  3. Make further Apache releases

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

  We still need some help importing our JIRA -- see INFRA-6419. For some
  reason we've had a lot of trouble with this. It should be easier now
  because Apache's JIRA was updated and now matches our version.

How has the community developed since the last report?

  We made the Spark 0.8.0 release, which was the biggest so far, with 67
  developers from 24 organizations contributing. The release shows how far
  our community has grown -- our 0.6 release last October had only 17
  contributors, and our 0.7 release in February had 31. Most of the
  contributors are now external to the original UC Berkeley team.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  We made the Spark 0.8.0 release mentioned above, which so far seems to
  be doing well. It brings a number of deployability features, improved
  Python support, and a new standard library for machine learning; see
  http://spark.incubator.apache.org/releases/spark-release-0-8-0.html
  for what's new in the release.

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. Transition community to new infrastructure and mailing lists
  2. Test and mature the Netty message passing implementation so all future
     releases do not include 0mq transport (which is LGPL)
  3. Make a release under Apache

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

  We are still waiting for ICLA's from Flip Kromer and David Lao.

  We are waiting for infrastructure to be set up so we can switch mailing
  lists and code hosting over to Apache.

How has the community developed since the last report?

  A few more users have been added to the Powered By page. Otherwise, we've
  received a steady amount of new patches and messages on the mailing list.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  A software grant has been filed by Nathan Marz for the project. Also, all
  contributor agreements Nathan has collected pre-Apache have been submitted
  to Apache. All committers except for two have filed ICLA's and CCLA's.

  We are making one last release via the old route during the transition into
  the incubator (0.9.0). We have switched development to an Apache-like
  consensus-driven approach and have made lots of progress on closing pull
  requests (as well as getting committers active in discussions, merging, and
  managing release process).

  1. Moving all Stratos related trademarks from WSO2 to Apache. Certain WSO2 technologies such as StratosLive still bear the Stratos name. These have to be resolved in the near future. We are in the process of sorting these out.
  2. Get the first Apache Stratos (incubating) release out, and in the process ensure all ASF release requirements are met.
  3. Build the community

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?
Three new committers & PMC members have been added to the project. (In Stratos, committers are also invited to join the PMC). Six Google Hangouts were held in order to educate the community about the project & the technical details/architecture in the project. A Cloud BarCamp is being organized for end of October to enable the Stratos community members as well as other Apache cloud project community members to meet up & exchange ideas & build synergy. Community members have also written several blog posts. The project has also seen a number of new contributors who have started actively participating in the project.



How has the project developed since the last report?

Code has been refactored to get rid of non ASL 2.0 compatible third party library dependencies.  Package names have been changed. License files added. Several bugs have been fixed. Builds have been made available for review & testing. In anticipation of the first release, the project has made available several RC packs to get community feedback. Documentation has been added to the wiki. The project site has been properly setup. The roadmap discussions are currently taking place on the dev list.

Shepherd notes:

(rvs) Stratos appears in a solid shape and working on its first incubator release. That said, their report is late which makes it difficult for the shepherding work to feel complete. I will try to ping some of the mentors.

  We are still a little low on mentors, but since Ant Elder has agreed
