Buildr

Development

We recently released Buildr 1.3.2, focusing strictly on bug fixes. 1.3.3 release scheduled for August will also focus on bug fixes and better error reporting. The bulk consists of issues reported, tested(!) and patched by community members. There's parallel work to add C/C++ support to Buildr, currently discussed on the mailing list, and we're seeing the first set of test cases for Eclipse tasks. Our little master plan to not accept patches without test cases may work out after all.

Community

In spite of our best efforts to send everyone on summer vacation, traffic is steadily picking up on the mailing list.

Issues before graduation

1.3.2 cleared up some missing/mixed copyright issues that slipped past QA in earlier releases, and as of now we have no outstanding licensing issues.

CouchDB

CouchDB is a distributed document-oriented database system written in Erlang. The project entered incubation on February 12th, 2008.

We have released CouchDB 0.8.0, our first podling release. New features include incremental reduce, compaction, the Mochiweb erlang HTTP library, enhancements to the ui interface (Futon) and build system (w/ spidermonkey now an external dependency). We are also about to release a 0.8.1 to fix bugs.

The number of libraries and project integrating with CouchDB continues to grow, as does the number of contributors. We will likely be adding a new project member soon. CouchDB is now fully integrated with the Apache resources (bug system, mailing list, wiki, website, etc) and we believe CouchDB is satisfying all its community requirements to graduate to a full Apache project.

Sling

Sling is a framework to develop content centric web applications based on the idea of modularizing the rendering of HTTP resources.

Sling entered incubation on September 5th, 2007.

Community

  • Over the last few months our mailing list has started being more active, with signs that Sling's user base is increasing steadily. The number of patches from non-committers is also increasing steadily.

Software

  • At long last Apache Sling has seen its initial release end of June.
  • The Sling Management Console has been moved to the Apache Felix project and is now called the "Apache Felix Web Management Console".
  • After the first release we have to take up a stab at our site and the documentation again, which we postponed until after the release due to lack of time.

Issues before graduation

  • Grow a more diverse community (so far commits mostly from Day employees).

Licensing and other issues

  • none
