Incubator PMC report for November 2017

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

October was a quieter month in the incubator.  We executed 4 podling releases, had no changes in staff.  One new podling joined, and are having graduation discussions for two podlings.  We expect Mnemonic to fully graduate this month.

--------------------
Amaterasu

Apache Amaterasu is a framework providing continuous deployment for Big
Data Pipelines.

It provides the following capabilities:

Continuous integration tools to package pipelines and run tests.
A repository to store those packaged applications: the applications
repository.
A repository to store the pipelines, and engine configuration (for
instance, the location of the Spark master, etc.): per environment - the
configuration repository.
A dashboard to monitor the pipelines.
A DSL and integration hooks allowing third parties to easily integrate.

Amaterasu has been incubating since 2017-09.

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

  1. Prepare the first release
  2. Grow up user and contributor communities
  3. Prepare documentation

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?

  * Talks have been given in different events to promote and give
visibility to Amaterasu

--------------------
Daffodil

Apache Daffodil is an implementation of the Data Format Description Language
(DFDL) used to convert between fixed format data and XML/JSON.

Daffodil has been incubating since 2017-08-27.

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

  1. Obtaining SGAs
  2. Establishing new apache-centric infrastructure
  3. Broadening base of contributors

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

- Only that chasing the SGAs down is going to take some time, though
this may be typical.

How has the community developed since the last report?

- Users: No change.

- Developers/Contributors: No change.

How has the project developed since the last report?

- Completed setup of the git repo.
- Started process of transfer of existing JIRA
tickets to Apache.
- Established our contributor/branch workflow and
published to wiki.
- Submitted Tresys SGA.
- Progress is being made on obtaining organizational
SGAs from NCSA and IBM.

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?

  While two contributors are still quite active working on
  the conversion to maven and towards getting out the next release,
  there has been very little other community or dev list activity.

How has the community developed since the last report?

  * Will Marshall had a meetup in San Francisco on the 20th of September
    to demonstrate an Edgent video analytics application which was
    initially presented at ApacheCon 2017 (Video Analytics at the Edge:
    Fun with Apache Edgent, OpenCV and a Raspberry Pi).
  * Christofer Dutz gave a presentation at Solutions Hamburg that
    included Apache Edgent.
  * There was one new non-committer enhancement/PR merged.
  * There was one JIRA from a new individual: asked & answered.
  * Total, we have 73 subscribers to our mailing list, an improvement
    of 3 since the last report.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  * Two contributors/committers have been very active overhauling the
    Edgent build system to Maven from Gradle on the features/maven
    branch. We are very close to merging and working on a release.
    Maven provides benefits over Gradle, including a more rigid build
    structure, the Maven package system, and ASF release process integration.
    The work includes a variety of other cleanup / usability items,
    such as how we distribute Edgent samples and how users build them.
  * According to JIRA, 6 new issues were added to the project and
    2 issues have been resolved or closed between August 2017 and October 2017.
    11 issues are in progress as part of PR-309 (the maven work).

How would you assess the podling's maturity?

  Edgent is making slow but consistent progress towards graduation. While we
  don't yet meet the diversity requirements, we put emphasis on community
  growth through outreach which will ultimately pave the way for additional
  committers and contributors.

  Additionally, before we graduate it is important that we find users
  outside of IBM. As most Edgent committers are employed by IBM, external
  stakeholders help ensure long term contribution to the project.

     Comments:  The podling is still growing.  I don't believe things have changed since I joined as mentor a few months ago.  To be able to graduate, they need to have a truly viable community with actual features coming in.

IPMC/Shepherd notes:
Development and the number of developers working on the project have fallen off. Dave Fisher.

--------------------
Guacamole

Guacamole is an enterprise-grade, protocol-agnostic, remote desktop gateway.
Combined with cloud hosting, Guacamole provides an excellent alternative to
traditional desktops. Guacamole aims to make cloud-hosted desktop access
preferable to traditional, local access.

Guacamole has been incubating since 2016-02-10.

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

  1. Reach consensus on graduation resolution DISCUSS thread (general@)
  2. Call IPMC graduation vote
  3.

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?

  The community has discussed, voted upon, and approved a resolution to
  graduate to TLP. This resolution is now being discussed on the general@
  list, prior to calling the IPMC graduation vote.

  Community activity on the mailing lists continues to be productive  and
  increasing, with the user@ list now receiving an average of 201 posts per
  month.

  Overall:

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?

In LEGAL-339[1] clarification was provided that the project could move into Apache git without having an SGA in place. The Heron team has developed a migration plan[2] forward into Apache which is currently being discussed.

1 - https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-339
2 - https://lists.apache.org/thread.html/a83095cd44e09fa179c4b5034e04acdb055a671406f1501a796700e0@%3Cdev.heron.apache.org%3E 

How has the community developed since the last report?

  * One new developer has approached the dev list to volunteer to drive the Heron/Scala implementation.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  * Development has been active, despite limited progress migrating to Apache infra.

--------------------
Impala

Impala is a high-performance C++ and Java SQL query engine for data stored in
Apache Hadoop-based clusters.

Impala has been incubating since 2015-12-03.

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

  Our graduation proposal is in the works.

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

 No

How has the community developed since the last report?

 There have been 279 Commits:
   git log --format='%ci' | grep -cE '2017-(08|09|10)'

 62 of those commits were by non-committers:
   git log --format='%an %ci' | grep -E '2017-(08|09|10)' | tr -d '0-9\-' | cut -d ' ' -f -2 | sort | uniq -c | sort -n

Of the 37 patch authors, 16 were not committers at the beginning of this reporting period.

 There are three new committers members and one new PPMC member:
   https://lists.apache.org/list.html?dev@impala.apache.org:dfr=2017-8-1|dto=2017-10-31:%22has%20invited%22

Impala has done a fourth release with a third release manager.

Impala has begun graduation procedures: we have held a community discussion and a community vote on graduation, both unanimous. We have established our intended PMC. Next, we will draft our charter and hold a discussion on general@incubator.

How has the project developed since the last report?

Impala has removed the old unpartitioned hash and aggregation nodes, relics from years ago that were kept around for backwards compatibility: the new buffer management makes these obsolete. Code generation for decimal and timestamp types has been added to the text scanner, increasing the performance of some queries by up to 19%. More robust query plans in case of data skew have made some aggregations eight times as fast. A number of large changes are in-flight, including changes to equivalence class computation in the planner, more decimal semantics adjustments, min-max filters for Kudu, and multi-threaded metadata loading that increases the performance of some metadata operations by 8x.

--------------------
Joshua

Joshua is a statistical machine translation toolkit

Joshua has been incubating since 2016-02-13.

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

  1. Make another Apache Joshua incubating release (7.0.0).
  2. Identifying specific use cases that Joshua might excel at.
  3. Attracting active developers and 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?

The community mailing lists continue to see a few new users
requiring assistance with using the project.
Questions have been answered in reasonable time. Community 
building continues to be the biggest challenge for Joshua right
now.

How has the project developed since the last report?

The PPMC is actively working towards a 7.0.0 release
candidate which will essentially be a re-modularization of
the Joshua source code for distribution and hopefully 
improved consumption as a dependency within other projects.
We have seen a few pull requests logged specifically addressing
source code formatting, this is a positive.

Slider

Slider is a collection of tools and technologies to package, deploy, and
manage long running applications on Apache Hadoop YARN clusters.

Slider has been incubating since 2014-04-29.

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

  1. Apache Slider community/PPMC has voted to move portions of Slider into
     Apache Hadoop YARN as modules. It is possible that the remaining pieces
     will be moved at a later point in time or become obsolete or evolve to
     work closely with YARN. A vote was initiated in the Apache Hadoop
     community to merge all Slider specific changes (now referred to as YARN
     Services) from a branch to trunk. Expectation is to make YARN Services
     an integral part of Apache Hadoop 3.x release. Few issues were raised
     on the changes in the branch, but all have been addressed and a new
     vote was initiated on Oct 30, 2017.

  2. Getting more external users

  3. Growth of a diverse set of developers/committers/PMC members

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

  No.

How has the community developed since the last report?

  Mailing list activity has been lower due to the bulk of the development
  moving to an Apache Hadoop branch. Questions on usage and issues
  encountered by end users keep coming at regular intervals, keeping the DL
  somewhat active.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  Work continues in parallel on the Apache Hadoop yarn-native-services
  branch and on the Slider podling. The bulk of the work has been in
  yarn-native-services. However, quite a few Fortify identified issues,
  a new feature for Percentage based Health Monitor support (SLIDER-1246) and

     Comments: Work happening in Apache Hadoop YARN project has reached a critical milestone - the Apache Hadoop community has voted and Slider functionality is now merged into Apache Hadoop trunk. It is potentially going to be part of the Apache Hadoop 3.1 release. Slider community to summarize this on dev-list and figure out the mechanics of working with Incubator to retire the Slider project and draw plans for hosting old releases, supporting and migrating existing applications etc.

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

  1. Announce release 0.3 properly
  2. Prepare release 0.4 (end of November)
  3. Grow community and get more active developers as a TLP

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

We'd like to graduate after 0.4 is out, maybe Q1-2018.

How has the community developed since the last report?

A lot of discussion/bugreport/fixing concerning the upcoming OSGi features on the mailing list.
Unfortunately not yet any new committers.
Members of the project have joined the official Configuration JSR (Anatole/John)


How has the project developed since the last report?

We've introduced new features such as OSGi support and full Java8 compatibility while raising test and mutation test coverage.
Apart from that the upcoming 0.4-SNAPSHOT has Microprofile API support.

     Comments: Its clear to me that the podling has a rough understanding of Apache Way.  However, I think they need the marketing side to pick up to draw some interest.
