October 2008 Board reports (see ReportingSchedule).

These reports are due here by 8 October 2008 so that the Incubator PMC can relay them to the board.

Your project might need to report even if it is not listed below, please check your own reporting schedule or exceptions.

Please remember to include:

  • The "incubating since" info
  • The project's top 2 or 3 things to resolve prior to graduation
  • A short description of what your project's software does


BlueSky

Empire-DB

PhotArk

Apache PhotArk will be a complete open source photo gallery application including a content repository for the images, a display piece, an access control layer, and upload capabilities.

  • PhotArk has been accepted for Incubation in August 19, 2008. Top Issues before graduation

    • Grow community
    Community Aspects
    • All infrastructure resources are available.
    • Initial committer accounts are ready.
    • Initial website ready and live.
    • Initial application prototype available in svn trunk.

Click

Click is a page and component oriented web application framework.

Click entered the incubator in July 2008.

  • The initial committers submitted their ICLA's and accounts have been created.
  • Mailing lists were created and the community have successfully migrated to the new lists.
  • JIRA instance has been setup.

There have been three external releases since incubation started namely 1.5M3, 1.5RC1 and 1.5RC2. We are busy fixing the last remaining issues before 1.5 final is released. With a stable 1.5 available we will start migrating the code to Apache repository.

Top priorities:

  • Migrate Click website to Apache.
  • Import issues from existing JIRA.
  • Migrate SVN repository.

Etch

Etch was accepted into Incubator on the 2 September 2008. Since then the following items has been completed;

  • Project STATUS page, navigation and entry in projects/index.html has been set up.
  • Mailing lists has been set up.
  • Jira project has been set up.
  • ICLAs for all initial committers has been submitted and recorded.

We are still waiting for a CCLA from Cisco, where all initial committers work. We also track all progress in JIRA (https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INCUBATOR-83) which is a lot easier than the STATUS page, and highly recommended for future recommended use to other podlings.

Tashi

Imperius

Imperius has been incubating since November 2007.

Imperius is a rule-based infrastructure management tool.

Code: Development continues on the code base.

Community: Two new committers since the last report. (The CCLA and ICLAs from Sun contributors have been received and commit access is now set up for all initial contributors). One new contributor contributed a patch via JIRA which was committed.

Graduation is not on the table based on the size and diversity of the community; and there has not been a release of code.

JSPWiki

2008-October JSPWiki Incubator status report

JSPWiki has been incubating since September 2007.

JSPWiki is a JSP-based wiki program.

During the past three months, the JSPWiki community seems to still enjoy a steady increase. The developer list now has 66 names, an increase of 12%. The user list is now 152 people strong, a growth of 7% since the last report.

The first beta of JSPWiki 2.8 (which is the Apache-licensed version of 2.6) has been released, and it is missing only a few key patches to be a full release. This, however, won't be an Apache release (as it is meant to be backwards compatible with 2.x series, which means keeping the old package structure). Despite of this, we're practicing the Apache processes of voting and approving releases.

Graduation depends chiefly of three things:

  • Stable release of 2.8, so we can concentrate on 3.0 process
  • Making a successful 3.0 release, including
    • Renaming of all packages to org.apache.*
    • Taking the new API into use
  • Making sure all the legal bits and pieces are in order (i.e. the status file)

JSecurity

Olio

Olio has been incubating since September 2008.

Olio is a web 2.0 toolkit to help developers evaluate the suitability, functionality and performance of various web technologies by implementing a reasonably complex application in several different technologies.

Mailing lists have been created. http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-1741

The svn repository was created at https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator/olio

Initial committers' accounts are in process. Mentors have been given access to the svn repo.

The JIRA project has been created. https://issues.apache.org/jira/secure/admin/ViewProject.jspa?pid=12310839

Lucene.Net

Qpid

RCF

RCF is a rich component set for JSF which supports AJAX. We are in the process of analyzing and removing undesired dependencies of our code to be compliant in the OpenSource world. Incubating since: May 2007.

The project sources have not yet been committed to Apache svn. We have some internal (oracle) discussion about migration for our existing customers, since the code-base is already used inside the company.

Issues before graduation:

  • Bring the sources to Apache
  • build a community around the code

Sanselan

Sanselan has been in incubation since September 2007.

Sanselan is a pure-java image library for reading and writing a variety of image formats.

The community hasn't grown much in the past three months. There continues to be only one active committer.

The first official Apache release occurred on July 30th, 2008.

A second release is being prepared. It will include significant bug fixes, better documentation, better IPTC and XMP support and improvements to the release structure.

Barriers to graduation continue to be diversity, size of the community, and overall activity.

Thrift

Tika

Apache Tika is a toolkit for detecting and extracting metadata and structured text content from various documents using existing parser libraries. Tika entered incubation on March 22nd, 2007.

Community

  • Dave Meikle was just voted in as a new committer.
  • Paolo Mottadelli will present Tika at ApacheCon US.

Development

  • Tika 0.2 should be released soon.
  • Usage documentation has been added to the website.

Issues before graduation:

  • The current plan is to graduate as a Lucene subproject, which could happen soon as the incubation criteria seem to be met.

UIMA

UIMA is a component framework for the analysis of unstructured content such as text, audio and video. UIMA entered incubation on October 3, 2006.

Some recent activity:

  • New Release: Version 2.2.2 of the UIMA-AS (asynchronous scale-out) framework - this is the initial release of this component
  • New Release: a hot fix for the base 2.2.2 release
  • New Release: the CAS Editor tool
  • Pending release vote in Incubator: UIMA-CPP - the C++ version of the UIMA framework, allowing C++ components (and components written in PERL, PYTHON, and TCL) to be intermixed with Java components.
  • CAS Viewer code was accepted into the sandbox, and work is underway to integrate it with the CAS Editor
  • Pending contribution: a user has integrated Apache Tika as a UIMA component and is offering to contribute it.
  • IP clearance forms are being worked on for 3 new components being incorporated into the Sandbox with software grants: A Common Feature Extractor useful for extracting features from CASes to use as training data in machine learning algorithms, a Concept Mapper - a general dictionary style lookup annotator which may be eventually combined with another dictionary annotator, and a Cas Viewer Eclipse plug-in tool, which may be combined with the Cas Editor work.

Items to complete before graduation:

  • We still need to attract more new committers with diverse affiliations.

Community:

  • We continue to do outreach to attract new contributors with diverse affiliations, who may become committers.
