Subject Proposed Podling Report
Date Wed, 01 Feb 2017 22:40:21 GMT
Hi All,

The following is the proposed podling report for the months of November,
December, and January. As this needs to be submitted by EOD today, please
respond with comments asap.

Apache Edgent 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 Edgent provides efficient and timely
analytics across the whole IoT ecosystem: from the center to the edge.

Edgent 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 the Edgent project
   2. Checking of all items in the project's Maturity Model (
   3. Create a second release of Apache Edgent with additional features and

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


How has the community developed since the last report?

   * A well attended meetup in San Francisco, CA about Apache Edgent was
held on January 18th. It covered introductory concepts of datastreaming,
the positioning of Edgent in the datastreaming universe, and examples and
use cases of Edgent. The meetup was attended by roughly 40 developers.
     "Apache Edgent: Datastreaming and Analytics for IoT Devices "

    * There has been at least one question both asked and answered on
Stackoverflow by a non-committer non-PPMC member of the community. (

    * Since the last report, at least 5 individuals have subscribed to the
Apache Edgent dev mailing list.

How has the project developed since the last report?

   * The first release of Edgent as part of the Apache incubator was
created on 2016-12-15. This represents a large amount of work, including
numerous improvements to connectors, the console, and a complete overhaul
of the build system to use Gradle.

   *According to JIRA, the project has added the following:

       * November 2016: 6 new issues; 18 issues resolved.

       * December: 18 new issues; 29 issues resolved.

       * January: 15 new issues; 12 issues resolved

Date of last release:

  * The most recent release of Apache Edgent was 2016-12-15.

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

   * In May 2016, we added two new committers and PPMC members, Kathy
Saunders and Queenie Ma.
