Subject Draft: Quarks Incubator PMC report for June
Date Tue, 31 May 2016 15:28:27 GMT
I have volunteered to draft the incubator report for June. Please feel free
to add
comments or information you believe should be added to the report.

Apache Quarks is a programming model and micro-kernel style runtime that can
be embedded in gateways and small footprint edge devices enabling local,
real-time, analytics on the continuous streams of data coming from
equipment, vehicles, systems, appliances, devices and sensors of all kinds
(for example, Raspberry Pis or smart phones). Working in conjunction with
centralized analytic systems, Apache Quarks provides efficient and timely
analytics across the whole IoT ecosystem: from the center to the edge.

Quarks has been incubating since 2016-02-29.

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

  1. Create and expand a diverse community of contributors and committers
     around Quarks project
  2. Create the first Apache release of Quarks
  3. Complete the product name search and select a suitable name

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

  Due to trademark concerns with "Quarks", the Quarks PPMC voted to change
  the project's name. A renaming discussion and public vote was held on the
  dev mailing list. The voting results are being discussed privately by the

How has the community developed since the last report?

  We have added two new committers and PPMC members, Kathy Saunders and
  Queenie Ma. Kathy has taken the lead on the name search process for
  and her positive attitude and helpfulness are an incredible asset for the
  Quarks community. Queenie has contributed content to the website and is a
  frequent participant in community discussions. The Quarks community is
  small, as Quarks has just recently incubated, therefore we aim to continue
  growing our list in the near future.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  * According to JIRA, the project has added 27 new issues in May, and 22
    issues have been resolved.
  * On May 12, several Quarks contributors hosted an "Apache Quarks on
    Raspberry Pi" webcast where they showed how to use Quarks to work with
    real sensor data on a Raspberry Pi, and demonstrated a smart sprinkler
    application using Quarks.

Date of last release:

  Quarks is still new, so we haven't created an Apache release as of yet.

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

  In May, we added two new committers and PPMC members, Kathy Saunders and
  Queenie Ma.
