Subject [DRAFT] August Podling Report Edgent
Date Tue, 07 Aug 2018 15:07:27 GMT


Apache Edgent is a programming SDK 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. Attracting at least another independent committer/ppmc member.
  3. Finding further real world users of Edgent

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

  Community participation, implying interest in Edgent, continues
  to be an issue.  One of the two active committer/PPMC members has
  retired at the end of February and the level of their continuing
  participation is has been significantly reduced since then. When a
  security problem had been brought up on the private list, not a single
  response from a second PPMC had been received.

How has the community developed since the last report?

  * An article on Apache PLC4X has been published in the German iX magazine.
     This article co-featured Apache Edgent
  * The previous JavaSPEKTRUM article was published on the codecentric blog
     and is now free to read for all.
  * Total, we have 77 subscribers to our mailing list, an increase
    of 1 since the last report.
  * It was almost silent on the mailing lists until two new names popped up
     asking question about a week ago.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  * Even if no vulnerabilities were found in Edgent, we updated some of our
     Dependencies no longer depend on third party artifacts that might contain
  * According to JIRA, 1 new issue was added and none were resolved
    in the last 90 days
  * 2 commits were made in the last 90 days.

How would you assess the podling's maturity?

  After withdrawal of most of the active committers and PPCM members currently
  a new committer and PPMC base has to be built. We are still very hopeful that
  we will be able to accomplish this task.
