February 2008 Board reports (see ReportingSchedule).

These reports are due to the Incubator PMC by 13 February 2008


Abdera is an implementation of the Atom Syndication Format and Atom Publishing Protocol standards.

The Abdera project is preparing release 0.4.0 which includes many new features and improvements including a new StreamWriter interface and a complete refactoring of the Atompub server APIs. The community has continued to grow with patches for bugs and improvements being actively submitted by members of the user community. Once the 0.4.0 release it out the door, the Abdera PMC will likely begin working towards graduation.

Incubating since: 2006-01-07

Testing on the MySQL port is continuing. A Fast Feather presentation on Lokahi was given at Apachecon in Atlanta. Recently talk (and some code) has begun around templating of configuration files, specifically for Apache Httpd at this time. And the need to extend Lokahi to manage Geronimo has been mentioned.

Obstacles to graduation:

RAT entered incubation in October 2007 but only in the last few weeks started to setup the required infrastructure. Most of this is now in place and the IP clearance for the code import is being worked upon now.
