Incubator PMC report for May 2018

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

There are presently 52 podlings undergoing incubation.  This was an extremely quiet month within the incubator, no changes in the PMC structure, no new podlings, one podling planning to graduate and only one release executed.  We do have two additional podlings planning graduation, but likely they will go next month (June).  There is work ongoing to replace the present chair.

* Community

  New IPMC members:

  - None

  People who left the IPMC:

  - None

* New Podlings

  - None

* Podlings that failed to report, expected next month

  - Gossip - report received extremely late, but had no mentor sign off.  Prior comments from mentor (P. Taylor Goetz) are retained:
        Reminders sent for both April and May reports. When I brought up 
        the possibility of retirement, several community members expressed interest
        in continuing incubation.
  - S2Graph - report received, but no mentor sign off

* Graduations

  The board has motions for the following:

  - Traffic Control

* Releases

  The following releases entered distribution during the month of
  April:

  - 2018-04-02 Apache ServiceComb Java_Chassis 1.0.0-m1

* IP Clearance



* Legal / Trademarks



* Infrastructure



* Miscellaneous

  - A discussion began recently about how to deal with absent mentors.  No concrete work, but it seems one call out is to check on a mentor's pulse to see if they are still supporting their podlings.

Druid

Druid is a high-performance, column-oriented, distributed data store.

Druid has been incubating since 2018-02-28.

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

 1. Complete SGA for current sources and ICLAs for current committers.
 2. Move the source code and website to Apache infrastructure.
 3. Plan and execute our first Apache 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?

- We have disabled posting on our pre-Apache development list.
- We have updated our pre-Apache community page (http://druid.io/community/) to
  include information about incubation.
- We have set up a placeholder site on https://druid.apache.org/.
- A healthy, constant flow of bug fixes, quality improvements and new features
  are still ongoing on https://github.com/druid-io/druid.

How has the project developed since the last report?

- Since the last report there have been 69 commits from 23 individuals.
- We have conducted a vote to put out a release candidate 0.12.1-rc1. This
  release candidate is being done outside the Incubator. We also anticipate the
  0.12.1 release to be done outside the Incubator.

     Comments: The "Initial setup" status is accurate because the SGA has
       not been completed yet. This is frustrating to all. Code is in github
       rather than ASF git, and Apache releases are not possible.
       Druid is functioning according to the Apache Way as much as they
       can, given these limitations.
       Druid has made its 2nd non-ASF patch release, with permission.
  [X](druid) P. Taylor Goetz
     Comments: SGA finally received. Hopefully druid will be able to do an Apache
       release soon.

     Comments: Activity levels remain very high. I am struggling to follow day
               to day activity. notifications@ has helped a little. The particular
               challenges for me are:
               - no threading of github issue / pr mail makes it hard to follow
                 individual issues
               - users having different ASF and GitHub user names makes to hard to
                 follow who is a committer and who is not

Edgent

Apache Edgent is a programming SDK and micro-kernel style runtime
that can be embedded in gateways and small footprint edge devices enabling
local, real-time, analytics on the continuous streams of data coming
from equipment, vehicles, systems, appliances, devices and sensors of
all kinds (for example, Raspberry Pis or smart phones). Working in
conjunction with centralized analytic systems, Apache Edgent provides
efficient and timely analytics across the whole IoT ecosystem: from the
center to the edge.

Edgent has been incubating since 2016-02-29.

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

 1. Create and expand a diverse community of contributors and committers
    around the Edgent project.
 2. Attracting at least another independent committer/ppmc member.
 3. Finding further real world users of Edgent

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

 Community participation, implying interest in Edgent, continues
 to be an issue.  One of the two active committer/PPMC members has
 retired at the end of February and the level of their continuing
 participation is has been significantly reduced since then. The second
 active committer was also very consumed with finishing his house-
 building, which is now finished. So we are hoping to see increased
 activity again.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 * An article on Apache Edgent has been published as cover-story in the
   German JavaSPEKTRUM magazine in March
   (https://bc-v3.pressmatrix.com/de/profiles/4967c6d5eae1/editions/138b1a28747149541fb0)
 * At the Techcamp.Hamburg in April we had one well attended talk about
    Apache Edgent
 * Total, we have 76 subscribers to our mailing list, an increase
   of 4 since the last report.
 * We have seen a new name on the list, which seems to be interested in
   contributing. Especially in the Kafka area. We are hoping to see more
   activity in the near future.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 * We have updated the Kafka module to the latest Kafka version
 * According to JIRA, 2 new issues were added and none were resolved
   in the last 90 days
 * 12 commits were made in the last 90 days.

Heron

A real-time, distributed, fault-tolerant stream processing engine.

Heron has been incubating since 2017-06-23.

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

  1. Finish bootstrapping project, IP clearance, initial website
  2. Expanding the community and adding new committers
  3. 1st ASF release

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

Extracting all binaries out of code base is still in progress.  There is only one binary left. 
Internal developers from Twitter are working on this process.

How has the community developed since the last report?

  * The number of contributors to the project has increased from 82 to 87 since the last report.
  * A meetup was hosted at Twitter HQ in Sunnyvale, CA with approximately 80 in attendance


How has the project developed since the last report?

  * Development has been very active. 
  * Work is in progress to get all licensing headers in compliance with Apache 
  * Twitter has submitted a signed SGA, granting ownership of Heron to Apache
  * The repository has been moved from Twitter's github account to Apache git
  * The appropriate work has been completed for package renaming.  com.twitter has now been changed to org.apache
  * All of the binaries have been removed from the code base with the exception of Scribe.  Twitter developers are to finish this task.

     Comments: Heron has been somewhat slow in adopting Apache-style communication and practices. Hopefully
       a first Apache release will provide an opportunity to change that.

IPMC/Shepherd notes:
Dave Fisher: I've been following the podling for many months. The podling is beginning to communicate better on the dev@ list. It took a long time to get the SGA from Twitter, but now that it is done. They are working towards the right way. They do need to have better asynchronous discussion and I've prompted for such on dev@.

PageSpeed

PageSpeed represents a series of open source technologies to help make the web
faster by rewriting web pages to reduce latency and bandwidth.

PageSpeed has been incubating since 2017-09-30.

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

  1. Work on ASF compliance with regard to the code base and website
     needs review.
  2. Create a first release
  3. Engage more active developers, expanding the community

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?

  One new pmc member/committer joined. There have been external contributions to 
  the code, but those have been mostly one-offs and not to the core product.
  We do see certain users committing to helping out others on the google group
  and github, some of them consistently for months now. 
  In terms of user engagement activity continues to be healthy.
  (lots of questions, some of which have been added to the FAQ).


How has the project developed since the last report?

  Changes with regard to ASF/incubator compliance for the code-base, 
  dependencies, and existing website have been made for mod_pagespeed.

  There have been non-trivial dependency upgrades to address platform
  compatibility issues.

  A bug fix for a relatively frequently reported issue is under review.

  A discussion on dev@ will be initiated to gauge consensus for spinning up 
  the release process based on the current code-base. The advantage is that
  doing so would make transitioning from Google- to ASF- signed releases
  low friction.

aware of?

No.

How has the community developed since the last report?

SDAP has been heavily advertised at/in tons of Earth Science 
technology forums. The SDAP community has plans to continue
in this thread with loads of activity booked over the summer

Summer 2018 meeting in Tucson, AZ 
http://esipfed.org/meetings/upcoming-meetings/esip-summer-meeting-2018 

How has the project developed since the last report?

Development is being sustained with initial discussion of an initial 
Incubating release some time soon. The dev@ community has produced
documentation regarding release artifacts. The aim would be to have 
a release candidate ready within the next month or so.

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

N/A

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

A discussion thread has begun on the retirement of the Slider podling.
There has not been much activity on the thread so far. Concern was
expressed that users who are unable to upgrade to Hadoop 3 will be
stuck without Slider support. A question was posed about whether an
additional release before retirement would help. Given the lack of
involvement on the thread, it is likely that a retirement vote will be 
held soon.

How has the community developed since the last report?

No new community development.

How has the project developed since the last report?

Two commits have been made since the last report. One improved Slider's
behavior in multi-homed environments and the other fixed a bug in how the
Slider agent kills processes.

Toree

Toree provides applications with a mechanism to interactively and remotely
access Apache Spark.

Toree has been incubating since 2015-12-02.

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

  1.More discussion and engagement on the mailing list as opposed to "gitter"
  3.Continue to make releases

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

* We have discussed couple times about inactive mentors, and we will
most likely start a process to replace those with new more available
ones so that we can get our release and graduate process more smoothly. 

How has the community developed since the last report?

* The community has been working on the 0.2.0 release,
and a new RC5 is undergoing vote.

How has the project developed since the last report?

* Regular cadence of community activity, more on the low to medium
size on the mailing lists. Having said that, lots of questions and
interactions are still happening in a very active fashion on the
"gitter chat community". I am particularly trying to make folks 
reach out via the mailing lists or JIRA, but without much success.


How would you assess the podling's maturity?

Unomi

Unomi is a reference implementation of the OASIS Context Server

specification currently being worked on by the OASIS Context Server
Technical Committee.

It provides a high-performance user profile and event tracking server.

Unomi has been incubating since 2015-10-05.

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

  1. Keep a good pace of releases
  2. Improve communication around the project and improve project web site
  3. Expand the communities (both developers and end-users)

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?

We are seeing external contributors more active in both mailing list and
the issue tracker. We are also working on making sure to on-board by
swiftly answering questions and taking their needs into account while
encouraging them to contribute.

How has the project developed since the last report?

Version 1.3.0-incubating should be released soon, we are working on it
right now. It notable include upgrading a lot of frameworks (Apache Karaf
4, Apache CXF 3.1, and lots more). After that version we plan to work on
integrating the new CXS GraphQL API as well as work on some more
performance and scalability improvements.

On the communication side we plan to update the website to talk about the
support for GDPR features and better privacy integration, and one of our
PPMC members will talk about the project at ApacheCon NA.
