---- Date of entry - August, 2006

Items to resolve before graduation:
  * Diversity - Active commiters are mostly IONA people. We did vote in two new independent committers and Dan Diephouse now works for an IONA competitor, so some progress is being made.


Community aspects:
  * Voted in Benson Margulies due to excellent work in several areas of the code, but specifically in the Aegis and XFire migration things.
  * Voted in Glen Mazza due to excellent work cleaning up various parts of the code, reviewing everyones commits, updating docs, etc....
  * Released 2.0.1-incubator and 2.0.2-incubator.
  * Started a discussion to talk about Graduation ([http://www.nabble.com/Graduating.....-tf4231363.html#a12038088 link]) but the discussion turned more to how to increase diversity when Jim J. expressed concerns about that.
  * The cxf-user mail list traffic has trippled since June. Many new users are participating. However, cxf-dev traffic remained constant except for a HUGE spike (2.4x normal) in September.

Code aspects:
  * Released 2.0.1-incubator and 2.0.2-incubator - These were bug fixes from 2.0, but some minor new features were added.
  * Started discussing a roadmap for a 2.0.3-incubator release (bug fixes) as well as a 2.1 release. (http://incubator.apache.org/cxf/roadmap.html)

Project name - Apache FtpServer

Description - Java based FtpServer

Date of entry - March, 2003

Progress since last report

* Only minor development efforts since last report due to commiter time limitations, mostly focused on fixing bug reports and feature requests which are coming in at a steady pace. More people seems to use FtpServer now that activity is steady on the project.
Voted in a new commiter, Clint Foster. He is currently in progress of setting up his account and get going with the practical details.
* Niclas Hedhman added as a much needed mentor to the project.
* Continous builds are in the works using the vmbuild1 server, with the aim of producing snapshots which has been repeatably asked for

Top three items to resolve

1. Growth of community - we still need more active members
2. Getting snapshot builds published automatically by the build server (minor details left to finish)
3. Getting s stable release out, need more active members to have good review
      Getting a build server in place so that we can generate snapshots, they have been requested by several people.

=== RCF ===

RCF is a rich component set (ajax-style) for JSF. The RCF Wiki has been created and all committers are now set. We started discussion on the OpenSource efforts, how to manage it, since we need to provide a migration path for current users. We are waiting for an import of a current code drop into the repository.

Incubation

* Lucene.Net has been under incubation since April 2006

Community

* An active, but a small community exists. The challenge has been to bring in folks who are willing to contribute to the code beside myself.

Code and documentation

* The code base continues to develop and new releases are being made. Recently Lucene.Net 2.0 "final" was release as well as Highlighter.Net 2.0 and Snowball.Net 2.0. In addition, for each of those components, there corresponding MSDN style documentation is also release.

=== NMaven ===

NMaven develops plugins and integration for Maven to make building and using .NET languages a first-class citizen in Maven.

Incubating since: 2006-11-17

This is the second monthly report for this podling.

Dan Fabulich (listed on original proposal) had his account created and was added to the committer list.

Healthy discussion taking part about design on the dev@ list.

No new committers to date.

Line 71: Line 91:
UIMA is a component framework for the analysis of unstructured content such as text, audio and video.

UIMA was accepted for incubation on October 10, 2006

Top 3 things to resolve before graduation:

  1. Complete code transition to Apache, do a release with all IP issues cleared
  1. Attract diverse, active committers
  1. Do a migration tool to enable migration to the Apache version
UIMA's incubation status file is here: http://incubator.apache.org/projects/uima.html

Some recent activity:

  * The UIMA Sandbox has been populated with some example annotators
  * A person new to the project, Jörn Kottmann, has written an Eclipse plugin he wants to contribute - we're going through the steps to bring this into the UIMA Sandbox. He has submitted a software grant, and we're awaiting it's acknowledgement (as of Wednesday, Jan 10)
  * We expect to do a release next month, and have been working to get all the little details needed for this completed.

We expect that we will need some assistance in doing our first release, to verify we're following the rules properly. We will start by using our mentors, and then ask the incubator PMC to review the proposed release.

=== Qpid ===

The Apache Qpid Project provides an open and interoperable, multiple
language implementations of the Advanced Messaged Queuing Protocol
(AMQP) specification

Date of entry to the Incubator : 2006-09

Top three items to resolve before graduation
 1. Defining a policy for adding new committers
 2. Understanding the details between JCP and announce compliance
 3. Making sure we are comfortable with the working relationship between Qpid and the AMQP Working Group.

Our STATUS file needs to be updated wrt this report, which will be done in the comming weeks as we add our first group of new committers.

* Any legal, cross-project or personal issues that still need to be
addressed?

The whole project has not gone through release review and the license files and notices need to be checked for all languages and components.

* Latest developments.
 * Since entering into incubation we have had one release of the java code base (M1).
 * We have migrated our build system from ant to maven.
 * Development has been moving forward. with improvements in memory footprint management passing the JMS TCK in with the java broker.
 * Addition of .NET client
 * Contributions from 5+ non committers
 * The creation of the first draft of Web site
 * General progress on all models in the code base

* Plans and expectations for the next period?

During the next period we plan on improving the stability of all language variants.
Working towards a standard interoperability test suite and improved test code coverage of the whole code base.
To this end we would like to get all the languages passing each others tests.
We will also be pushing forward official JMS compliance certification for both brokers.
Would like to create a release of the full code set.


=== Roller ===

We've been very busy with new feature development for Roller, but we
have also spent time preparing Roller for graduation and now that
we've got an Apache web and wiki presence, two of the last items on
our checklist, we feel that we're just about ready to call for a vote.
More about that later. For now, here's some status on our
accomplishments since our last report in July 2006:

'''Roller 3.0 released'''. We detailed the new features of Roller 3.0 in
the last report. They include a completely new rendering system with a
new URL structure, new template models/macros, better multi-language
blog support and a new blog-based front page. We released Roller 3.0
on November 7, 2006.
http://rollerweblogger.org/wiki/Wiki.jsp?page=Roller_3.0_WhatsNew

'''Roller 3.1 development'''. Following Roller 3.0, we developed another
major new release of Roller. The major new features are full-support
for weblog tagging, a better rich-text editor based on Xinha,
full-preview and bulk-delete of comments. We've made three release
candidate releases and with RC3 we're just about ready to make the
final release.
http://rollerweblogger.org/wiki/Wiki.jsp?page=Roller_3.1_WhatsNew

'''Established Roller web presence at apache.org'''. We have now
established a web site for Roller at apache.org. Keeping with our
community traditions, this site will be a simple front-page that links
into a wiki where actual content will be created and updated.
http://incubator.apache.org/roller/

'''Established Roller wiki space at apache.org'''. We have also started to
migrate wiki content from the old Roller wiki to the new wiki site at
apache.org. We chose Confluence because we want the wiki to serve as a
tightly controlled content management system (similar to the way we
were using JSPWiki before).
http://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/ROLLER

We have '''almost completed a JPA implementation of Roller back-end'''.
The new implementation is passing about 95% of the back-end unit
tests and we are actively working on getting it ready to test and
compare against our current Hibernate implementation.

As part of our '''community building efforts''' we presented talk on
Roller at ApacheCon US 2006 and have submitted multiple Roller-related
proposals to ApacheCon EU and JavaOne 2007.
