  user@ received 53. 443 new issues have been filed. There has been one
  release (our second Apache release) and we have added one new PPMC
  member. Our infrastructure has been transitioning: we moved our
  pre-commit testing out of our old, pre-Apache hosting and we have been
  actively working with Gavin McDonald on migrating our JIRA hosting.

iota

Open source system that enables the orchestration of IoT devices.

iota has been incubating since 2016-01-20.

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

  1. Getting a release out based on the current code base - will will commit to do that this quarter
  2. Growing the community - we have been slow to get off the ground and need to put more effort in here - we will commit to do more outreach to grow the community
  3. Using the mailing list to discuss current and future development and needs - we commit more regular dialogue on the mailing list

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
aware of?  We realize we have been a little slow is getting off the ground as an Apache Project. I have spoken to Hadrian Zbarcea and explained to him why this has been the case. We are really committed to iota as a technology and commit to put more effort into making this a successful project.



How has the community developed since the last report?
No - we need to spend time on this and we will do so.


How has the project developed since the last report?
We have added global performers

Shepherd/Mentor notes:


--------------------
ODF Toolkit

Java modules that allow programmatic creation, scanning and manipulation of
OpenDocument Format (ISO/IEC 26300 == ODF) documents

ODF Toolkit has been incubating since 2011-08-01.

Most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:

  1. Get companies backing up the project as part of a commercial story, to
     get a long-term momentum
  2. Do recurrent releases - some semi-automation would be helpful - for the
     3rd party users

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

  A discussion has been started about the cancellation of the project due to
  lack of developers on the private odf-toolkit and private incubator list. 

  A general issue of the project is that it 'just' a toolkit of an office
  file format, which in addition is far from leading on the business market,
  so likely never being used by the mass market - a very niche product.

  Still the toolkit seems to be working well for most common use cases, but
  is repeatedly updated by developers on changes of the ODF, like Red Hat
  developers enhancing the ODF validator as part of LibreOffice regression
  tests (e.g. out-of-the-box running on http://odf-validator.rhcloud.com/)
  most often quite ahead of one of the international ODF Plugfests -
  http://odfplugfest.org/2016-paris/programme/. 

  Since there are still some game changing features in the pipeline (e.g.
  collaboration) which are expected to strengthen the acceptance and develop
  the community but on the other hand the mentorship / infrastructure of the
  project could be better, a decision needs to be made on the future.

How has the community developed since the last report?
 
  We clarified on the ApacheCon Europe that a merge with the Open-XChange
  fork is possible, which extended the original sources still using AL2 and
  having done several releases with the new AL2 sources.

  So, we are working on the next release including the fixes and planning a
  follow-up release adding new features.

  Those features should be able to attract companies to back the project.

  In addition, those will be used as reference implementation for the "OASIS
  Advanced Document Collaboration" subcommittee.

PredictionIO was granted on 2016-06-16. The second grant of PredictionIO
templates and SDKs was granted on 2016-09-20.

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

  1. Establish a formal release schedule and process, allowing for
dependable release cycles in a manner consistent with the Apache way.
  2. Grow the community to establish diversity of background.
  3. Transition remaining former PredictionIO users from google-groups to
ASF mailing lists.

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

  None

several new templates added to the engine template gallery.
  4. Local user groups are budding, e.g. Japan PredictionIO User Group.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  1. Several major feature contributions are under review.
  2. The second release is on track for early February release.
  3. There have been active discussions which have driven a solid roadmap
for future releases, especially centering around microservice architecture,
stateless builds, and running from anywhere with a centralized metadata
registry.

Date of the last release:

  Apache PredictionIO 0.10.0-incubating on 2016-10-17

SystemML

SystemML provides declarative large-scale machine learning (ML) that aims at
flexible specification of ML algorithms and automatic generation of hybrid
runtime plans ranging from single node, in-memory computations, to distributed
computations running on Apache Hadoop MapReduce and Apache Spark.

SystemML has been incubating since 2015-11-02.

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

  1. Grow SystemML community: increase mailing list activity,
   increase adoption of SystemML for scalable machine learning, encourage
   data scientists to adopt DML and PyDML algorithm scripts, respond to
   user feedback to ensure SystemML meets the requirements of real-world
   situations, write papers, and present talks about SystemML.
  2. Continue to produce releases.
  3. Increase the diversity of our project's contributors and committers.

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be aware
of?
 NONE.
