2008-September JSecurity Incubator status report

JSecurity is a powerful and flexible open-source Java security framework
that cleanly handles authentication, authorization, enterprise session
management and cryptography.

JSecurity has been incubating since June 2008.

Since last month, a new external release has been issued (0.9.0-RC2), and some
bug fixes, and discussion about the configuration format.

The code source should be injected to the Apache repository soon, when the
external 0.9.0 release will be out. It's a matter of days, may be a week,
accordingly to the latest discussion on the mailing list.

JIRA is set up, but it should be used.

The status is being maintained at
http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator/jsecurity/STATUS
Line 18: Line 39:

River is aimed at the development and advancement of the Jini technology core infrastructure. Jini technology is a service oriented architecture that defines a programming model which both exploits and extends Java technology to enable the construction of secure, distributed systems which are adaptive to change.

This reporting period showed almost no activity, which is quite disappointing. Based on the question by one of our mentors "What's up with River" it became clear some active committers were forced to downsize their participation due to being drowned by other activities, in case of many of the Sun committers this is due to a change of jobs.

There are however signs that others, well known in the Jini community, want to lend their hand and help with getting out our next release.

Things that needs to be done before graduation:

    * the API in the {{{com.sun}}} namespace must be changed to {{{org.apache}}}, probably has to await the incorporation of patches lingering around and after our automated test framework is in place
    * overall participation of non Sun committers must increase and we should grow our community by getting more people involved

Incubating since: December 2006

September 2008 Board reports (see ReportingSchedule).

Next board meeting is on September 17, 2008, so the aggregated Incubator report must be sent on September 15th.

River

River is aimed at the development and advancement of the Jini technology core infrastructure. Jini technology is a service oriented architecture that defines a programming model which both exploits and extends Java technology to enable the construction of secure, distributed systems which are adaptive to change.

This reporting period showed almost no activity, which is quite disappointing. Based on the question by one of our mentors "What's up with River" it became clear some active committers were forced to downsize their participation due to being drowned by other activities, in case of many of the Sun committers this is due to a change of jobs.

There are however signs that others, well known in the Jini community, want to lend their hand and help with getting out our next release.

Things that needs to be done before graduation:

  • the API in the com.sun namespace must be changed to org.apache, probably has to await the incorporation of patches lingering around and after our automated test framework is in place

  • overall participation of non Sun committers must increase and we should grow our community by getting more people involved

Incubating since: December 2006

Shindig

Incubating since: 2007-12-06

High-level status summary: Shindig preparing for an incubation release of the v0.8 OpenSocial spec

  • On track for an incubation release of Shindig on September 30, compliant to OpenSocial v0.8.1

  • Active community, code base is maturing well, and is in use by many very large sites
  • Apache-provided Zone is up and running
  • 2 new committers, actively seeking more
  • Top 2 things to resolve prior to graduation:
    • Improve diversity of committers (progress, but on-going)
    • Run through at least one release (0.8 release will be a good one)
