Status report for the Apache jclouds project - July 2014

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

Project Status

jclouds has carried out two successful releases (1.7.2 and 1.7.3) in the last quarter and plans to release 1.7.4. The jclouds website and documentation continues to be expanded.

The developer and user community is active, with sustained activity by the core team. The PMC is still looking to grow the committer base and encourage contributions across the spectrum of supported APIs and providers.


A slightly more detailed look at the project community. It should still be brief, issues to think about include:

When was the last PMC member added?

There is regular activity on both the user and dev lists. Responses to questions are generally fast, with multiple community members contributing.

Community Objectives

  • Simplifying the current multi-repo release procedure to allow for more frequent releases
