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:




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.


Click is a page and component oriented web application framework.

Click entered the incubator in July 2008.

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:


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

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.




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:



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




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:


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.
