Subject Re: [REPORT][DRAFT] Apache Commons Board Report for December 2016
Date Fri, 16 Dec 2016 18:08:09 GMT
I've rejiggered the heart of the report to move some of the information
about Commons Math into the health section which I feel is more
appropriate. I'll send this in very soon.

## Issues:
 - There are no issues that requires the boards attention this quarter.

## Activity:
 - The project is active with 6 releases this reporting period.
 - We released one new component: Apache Commons RNG 1.0. Commons RNG
 provides implementations of pseudo-random numbers generators that are
 either faster or of higher quality (and sometimes both) than
 java.util.Random.
 - Commons RDF is making its way out of the incubator into Commons
 toward a 1.0 release.

## Health report:
 - Most components in Commons are mature, but are still actively
 maintained (6 releases). The dev list is active. JIRA is active. Speed of
 responses to users is reasonable in most cases. We have 1 new PMC member,
 and Commons is still open to any Apache Committer.
 - Commons Math still feels stuck and now depends on Commons RNG
 in our repository. We are discussing how to evolve this component, which
 has caused some friction within our community, all of which can be seen on
 the developer's mailing list. There are several proposals for fostering new
 communities in place of the dwindling Commons Math one, but that those are
 in limbo because no consensus has been reached yet.
