Hi All,

Below is the draft of the board report for December. Let me know if I
missed anything.. Thanks!


Archiva Board Report for December 2011

Apache Archiva is an extensible repository management software that helps
taking care of your own personal or enterprise-wide build artifact
repository. It is the perfect companion for build tools such as Maven,
Continuum, and ANT.


* 1.4-M1 release 2011-10-26


* A number of users and contributors, including a past GSoC (2010)
participant, has expressed their interest in working on the project.


* As reported in the previous board reports, there were a number of planned
  refactorings of Archiva trunk. Below are the status of each of them:

  - moving the UI to another framework (in-progress)

  - removal of all plexus components (completed)

  - replace or overhaul the security system used (UI overhaul of current
    security system used has been done to integrate with the UI refactorings
    in Archiva)

* For Archiva's UI refactoring, the aim is to make it fast and simple, and
to de-couple it with the core. For the latter aspect, the REST services for
Archiva's functionalities are already complete. The UI overhaul will start
at the integration with the recent UI changes made in the security system
used, which is Redback (

* Patches have also started coming in for the OSGI integration with Apache

* 1.4-M2 release discussion is currently underway. The release will
possibly include improvements for the Maven index support, upgrades on some
of the libraries used and a number of bug fixes.
