Subject [DRAFT] Flex June Report
Date Mon, 03 Jun 2013 16:18:36 GMT
Hi Folks,

Looks like we nee to report in June.  Here's a draft.  Can we get latest
web-site visitor activity?

Thanks,
-Alex

-------------
Apache Flex is an application framework for easily building Flash-based
applications for mobile devices, the browser and desktop.

RELEASES
Apache Flex SDK 4.9.1 was released on 2/28/13.
Apache Flex Installer 2.5.4 was released on 4/11/13.
The community is currently preparing its next release of both the SDK and
Installer.

ACTIVITY
Activity in Apache Flex continues to be in  two main areas:  improvements
to
the existing Adobe Flash Platform-dependent code base, including the
releases listed above, and prototyping ways to create a version of Flex
that
is independent from the Adobe Flash Platform.  There is another group
working on Maven-related tools for the existing code base.
Just in the past 30 days, 130 JIRA issues were resolved.  JIRA activity is
so high, a vote is underway to split JIRA notifications off to its own
mailing list (issues@flex.a.o)

Getting used to Git was still a frequent topic in April and May.  Because
Git does not support partial checkouts, the community prototyped using
GitHub for the whiteboards.  GitHub notifications are sent to the commits@
list just like any other Apache Git commit.  The PMC then voted to approve
this workflow.  And because we do our work in a branch and have trunk only
have released sources, we had to ask Infra to update the mirrors to work
from that branch.

The owner of a popular application-framework that leverages the Flex SDK
has offered to donate the code to the project.  This has met with some
opposition from those who use competing application-frameworks.  The
ensuing dicussion indicated that the PMC is in favor of accepting
donations from the these other frameworks should they choose to donate, so
we believe we are not endorsing or showing favoritism.

COMMUNITY
No new committers in the last 90 days.  A vote is underway to promote a
committer to the PMC.  Latest analytics are: _____

INFRASTRUCTURE
* Infra attempted to resolve INFRA-4380 but ran into problems.  I have
approval to try to use the SOAP interface to pull the current state of
JIRA issues, merge them with the original attachments and provide a new
import file for INFRA.  That task has been delayed by other issues like
getting new releases out, but we will get to it eventually.

BRANDING
We have noted that Apache projects are forming that use code module names
that are used in Apache Flex.  Namely 'Falcon' and now 'Spark'.  These two
words are used often on the mailing lists when discussing the related code
which then finds its way into the search engines.  Is this an issue?
