I had access from when we first started at the incubator. Randall, if you want access, you
have to ask on (might be a good idea for the future!).

Here's what I've added to the report--revise in reply and I'll surface them to the wiki as
needed. Thanks!



Annotator provides annotation enabling code for browsers, servers, and humans.

Annotator has been incubating since 2016-08-30.

Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:

  1. Achieving active development cadence
  2. Attracting new contributors
  3. Establishing presence (web, repo, activity)

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be aware

  Beginning work within the ASF has been slow (and rather confusing). Mailing list activity
has improved, but still low volume. Development priorities are still being discussed. We do
now have repositories for code and the website, but are blocked by needing access to them--the
request as been made to the general@incubator list. However, we have successfully gotten Jira
and Confluence setup for the project and have a promotional web page ready and waiting once
access has been granted. Making the incubation process clearer (and ideally more automated)
would have saved a lot of time and confusion. That said, our Champion (Daniel Gruno), has
been most helpful in helping us navigate.

How has the community developed since the last report?

  Discussions have begun on development priorities. Infrastructure helped us resolve some
outstanding project setup needs (Jira, Confluence, and git for the web site and code). Once
the site is online, we intend to promote the community more and make concrete plans out of
the proposals made on the mailing list so far.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  Same as above. Mostly discussion and infrastructure/access setup--some still in progress.

Date of last release:


When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

  None since start of incubation.

Are you logged in?  Have you got (asked for)
write access to the wiki?
