Subject Re: January 2016 Report

Hi folks, please review the following report to be posted about Geode

*Mentors, please review as well, so we can get the sign-off   ;)



Geode is a data management platform that provides real-time, consistent
to data-intensive applications throughout widely distributed cloud

Geode has been incubating since 2015-04-27.

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

  1. Have our first Apache (incubating) release
  2. Expanding the community to include contributors and committers outside
of Pivotal.
  3. Execute and manage the project according to governance model required
by the "Apache Way"

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?

- There is currently a single item (GEODE-610) pending for the Alpha-1

OQL/Querying on Geode presented by Jason Huynh. Video to be published on

How has the project developed since the last report?

- GEODE-77 (about JGroups) got merged into develop making a release now
possible. This was a huge effort and now JGroups is treated like any other
dependency in the project allowing for easy updates when needed.
- There is Agile Dashboard tracking the release progress:

- Builds now runs Apache RAT for license audit thanks to a Gradle plugin.
- Jenkins nightly build now produces source and binary artifacts. Namely
apache-geode-src-1.0.0-incubating-SNAPSHOT.tar.gz and
- The code for HTTP session replication and Hibernate modules are now being
merged into develop. (GEODE-14)
- The community did a squashathon (GEODE-409 branch) focusing to fix
intermitent failures on the CI with great results, increasing the number of
Unit and Integration tests. Current numbers are the following, by category:

  UnitTest: 1,572 tests
  IntegrationTest: 2,571 tests
  DistributedTest: 7,166 tests

Date of last release:
