Subject january 2017 board report draft
Date Mon, 09 Jan 2017 16:46:07 GMT
Hello all,

The Apache Accumulo PMC has decided to start drafting its quarterly board
reports on the dev list. Here is a draft of our report which is due on
Wednesday. Let me know if you have any suggestions!


The Apache Accumulo sorted, distributed key/value store is a robust,
scalable, high performance data storage system that features cell-based
access control and customizable server-side processing.  It is based on
Google's BigTable design and is built on top of Apache Hadoop,
Zookeeper, and Thrift.

The project is active and there are no Board-level issues at this time.
We have made no new releases since the previous report and have
added two committers/PMC members. We forgot to mention in our last
report that our trademark registration for ACCUMULO in the US has
been granted! We also amicably resolved a trademark issue with the
GitHub organization "accumulo" [1].

There have been no new releases since the last report.
The latest release was version 1.6.6 on 9/18/2016.

The number of subscribers to the dev list and the user list has
decreased slightly. User list activity has increased slightly, while
activity for other mailing lists has decreased from the previous quarter.
Activity is still generally strong.

In the past 3 months, there have been 81 commits to the master branch
from 14 authors, 5 of whom are not yet committers.

We have not begun release planning for our next release, but have
63 of 122 issues resolved towards a 1.7.3 release, 31 issues resolved
for the 1.8 branch, and 58 issues resolved for the master (2.0) branch.

Mike Miller was added as a committer and PMC member on 10/24/2016.
Mike Walch was added as a committer and PMC member on 11/3/2016.

We noticed that the "accumulo" organization on GitHub did not meet third
party branding guidelines. After we discussed this with the owners of the
organization, they transferred control of the organization to the Apache
Accumulo PMC and moved all third party repositories that had been
associated with the organization.
