+## Apache Gora Project Report November 2010 ##
+
+Gora is an ORM framework for column stores such as Apache HBase and Apache
+Cassandra with a specific focus on Hadoop.
+
+### A list of the three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation ###
+
+ 1. Port Gora code and license headers into ASF license headers
+ 2. Develop a strong community with organizational diversity and with
+infection into existing ASF projects like Nutch and Hadoop
+ 3. At least one Gora incubating release
+
+### Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be aware of? ###
+
+No, not at this time.
+
+### How has the community developed since the last report? ###
+
+The community is slowly migrating over from Github. Mailing lists activity
+is mainly from Gora committers and mentors, though we have fielded a user
+question or two since the last report. Enis sent a link regarding the
+spring-data framework, a NoSQL solution from the Spring community.
+
+### How has the project developed since the last report? ###
+
+Gora was voted into the Incubator by the IPMC on September 26, 2010.
+
+Work has effectively begun at the ASF. An Apache Forrest-based website has
+been stood up (GORA-2) at http://incubator.apache.org led by Enis Soztutar
+and Henry Saputra. Andrew Hart contributed a logo for GORA in GORA-3.
+Andrzej Bialecki has been leading the development of several Gora backends,
+including Ehcache (GORA-13), JDBM2 (GORA-14) and Solr (GORA-9). Other
+bugfixes and development discussions (e.g., GORA-12) have been churning
+along (with contributions from Dogacan Guney and others. The project's
+development is moving forward.
+
+A software grant was recorded on October 5, 2010 and Chris Mattmann set up
+the initial Gora Incubator tracking status page at
+http://incubator.apache.org/projects/gora.html in GORA-10.

+## Apache Gora Project Report February 2012 ##
+
+Apache Gora is an open source framework providing an in memory data model
+and persistence for big data. Gora supports persisting to column stores,
+key value stores, document stores and RDBMSs, and analyzing the data with
+extensive Hadoop MapReduce support.
+
+### Project Releases ###
+
+The last official project release was made on 24/09/2011 which was the
+0.1.1-incubating release (2nd whilst in the Incubator). Discussion has
+surfaced on the project development strategy for spinning a 0.2 RC within
+the next month or so.
+In addition to the numerous improvements made between 0.1.1-incubating and
+0.2 we plan to implement two additional data store modules, namely gora-solr
+and gora-accumulo. The addition of these modules not only drives the project
+towards its extended project description and aspirations, but will also ensure that
+Apache Gora is extended to two diverse and active communities with the ASF.
+
+### Overall Project Activity since last report ###
+
+Since reporting we have identified several improvements to be made to the
+codebase. These issues are actively being worked on, however the task of
+migrating all Gora infrastructure to TLP status is currently taking precedence.
+In terms of project activity, over the last month, our mailing lists have
+witnessed sustainable levels of activity with noticeably higher volumes of
+traffic. Daniel Shahaf has done an excellent job of migrating the overwhelming
+majority of the incubator infrastructure over to TLP configuration.
+
+### How has the community developed since the last report? ###
+
+Having just been accepted into the ASF as a TLP, the Gora PMC is pleased
+to announce that having VOTE'd we have successfully attracted one new
+committer and PMC member, Keith Turner. In addition we've become aware
+of some other more discrete members of the community chipping in.
+This is promising, as members from communities as far afield as Apache
+James are actively monitoring the Gora development lists.
+Additionally we have connected with members of the JOOQ community
+regarding a possible re-write of the gora-sql module as well as members
+of the Hector Developers community, a formal announcement was made on
+15/01/2012 (cross posted to the Hector user lists) which states
+continued and committed support for the Hector client API within
+the gora-cassandra module. This was followed by members of the Hector
+development team formally stating on the Gora dev lists that they are
+happy to work collaboratively to make both Hector and Gora better projects.
+
+### Changes to PMC & Committers ###
+
+The Gora PMC is pleased to announce that Keith Turner was VOTE'd in
+as PMC member and Committer. Hopefully by the time this report is
+presented to the Board, Keith will be on board and able to actively
+maintain and improve the gora-accumulo module, also opening Gora up
+to the Accumulo community.
+
+### PMC and Committer diversity ###
+
+We currently have committers from a wide variety of projects including,
+Nutch, Tika, OODT, Camel, Solr to name a few. Once Keith's credentials are
+processed we can add Accumulo to this list. This list is not exhaustive.
+
+### Project Branding or Naming issues ###
+
+As we migrate the website to the TLP infrastructure we have created an
+issue on the Gora Jira to ensure that all ASF branding and naming guidelines
+are implemented fully and that Apache Gora is in compliance.
+
+### Legal issues ###
+
+We currently have an issue with one particular library being used within the
+gora-sql store. It is the communities intention to remove this LGPL licensed library
+from the codebase replacing it with implementations from JOOQ an ASL 2.0 licensed library.

+## Apache Gora Project Report December 2011 ##
+
+Gora is an ORM framework for column stores such as Apache HBase and Apache
+Cassandra with a specific focus on Hadoop.
+
+### A list of the three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation ###
+
+  1. Fix failing module tests within the Jenkins CI build
+  2. Update both project site and wiki documentation with specific emphasis
+on Hbase, Cassandra and SQL modules as well as the release process
+  3. Write tests for Cassandra module as this would provide an additional
+layer of consistency to the project. This is fundamental before a
+0.2-incubating release.
+
+### Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be aware of? ###
+
+  1. The Gora PPMC recently voted to extend an invitation to Ferdy Galema,
+he has however noted that he is on holiday and will not be able to accept
+until his return.
+  2. The community plans a 0.2-incubating release soon, and it will likely
+coincide with the graduation VOTE that Chris Mattmann, champion for Gora,
+will put forth.
+
+### How has the community developed since the last report? ###
+
+With the addition of Ferdy Galema, as stated above there has also been
+interest from one of Ferdy's colleagues and additionally Keith Turner who is
+working on the Accumulo (Apache Incubator) project. Keith's intention is to
+build a gora-accumulo store which would add significantly to Gora.
+
+The project is currently VOTE'ing on its graduation, at this thread:
+http://s.apache.org/AbC. So far community response looks good. If the VOTE
+passes, we'll head over to general@incubator
+and raise the VOTE there. If all is well on that VOTE, we're targetting a
+January 2012 resolution to the board.
+
+### How has the project developed since the last report? ###
+
+Gora was voted into the Incubator by the IPMC on September 26, 2010.
+
+Gora 0.1.1-incubating was successfully released on 24 September 2011 which
+displays that the project has made 2 releases since entering the incubator.
+Additionally a Jenkins CI build has been established and work is on way to
+firstly fix the broken tests, before working to improve overall code test
+coverage. In particular the modular nature of the project meant that
+developers have decided that a Maven build was more appropriate than an
+Ant/Ivy implementation.

+## Apache Gora Project Report March 2012 ##
+
+The Apache Gora open source framework provides an in-memory data model and
+persistence for big data. Gora supports persisting to column stores, key
+value stores, document stores and RDBMSs, and analyzing the data with
+extensive Apache Hadoop MapReduce support.
+
+### Project Releases ###
+
+The last official project release was made on 24/09/2011 which was the
+0.1.1-incubating release (2nd whilst in the Incubator). Although since last
+reporting there have been some commits to three Gora modules, some remaining
+issues still need to be addressed before we are ready to roll out a 0.2
+release. This is rather frustrating, as the main issue which blocks a 0.2
+release is a licensing issue on the gora-sql store. It is widely
+acknowledged that although gora-sql is the least used module, it is the one
+which requires attention to rectify this licensing issue.
+
+### Overall Project Activity since last report ###
+
+Since graduation all documentation, and infrastructure has been successfully
+migrated over to TLP status. We've witnessed development and commits to
+three datastores and a number of issues addressed as a result. It is safe to
+say that the gora-hbase store seems to be attracting the most development,
+however there are also a number of issues which have recently been opened
+for the gora-cassandra module. In the last report we stated that there were
+two new modules in the process of being integrated into the project (namely
+gora-accumulo and gora-solr), however due to ongoing issues with releases
+for Solr and Accumulo, we are not able to release the gora modules.
+
+### How has the community developed since the last report? ###
+
+The Gora mailing lists have seen some activity with regards to
+gora-accumulo, however generally speaking traffic was quite low for the
+month until this report. We do however have some excellent news that we are
+submitting an application to Google Summer of Code. The project comprises a
+gora-dynamodb (Amazon Dynamo DB) module, again making best efforts to open
+up Gora to a wider audience.
+
+### Changes to PMC & Committers ###
+
+Since VOTE'ing Keith Turner on to the team no new members have been accepted
+into the Gora development team. Additionally, no new VOTE'ing has taken place.
+
+### PMC and Committer diversity ###
+
+We currently have committers from a wide variety of projects including,
+Nutch, Tika, OODT, Camel, Solr, Accumulo & Hadoop (this is not an exhaustive
+list). There is work to be done with the Avro implementations, so once we
+are 100% ready to work on these issues, we will be looking to interest
+members of the Avro community in Gora.
+
+### Project Branding or Naming issues ###
+
+We recently sorted out all branding and trademark issues through trademarks@.
+As this has been addressed there is no more to add at this stage.
+
+### Legal issues ###
+
+We currently have an issue with one particular library being used within the
+gora-sql store. It is the communities intention to remove this LGPL licensed
+library from the codebase replacing it with implementations from JOOQ an ASL
+2.0 licensed library. A re-write of the gora-sql module building from the
+JOOQ library has been delayed until after our 0.2 release, an interim
+solution comprises simply replacing the offending code with TODO's. Although
+technically this makes the gora-sql module unfit for production use, it does
+allow us to progress with releasing Gora 0.2. The community can then move
+towards a rewrite of the gora-sql module for a 0.3 release.

+have been fairly significant. The community is currently in discussion
+regarding a 0.2 release candidate and it is hoped that we will see a 
+Gora 0.2 release by mid/end April.
+
+### Overall Project Activity since last report ###
+
+Activity shadows last months average, with nothing exceptional taking place.
+A blocker issue with our usage of a particular sql library has been dealt with,
+additionally Keith Turner was able to commit his gora-accumulo module, as the 
+distribution of Accumulo was released and available for us to use. Ferdy 
+committed a nice piece of work which now provides users with the ability to 
+properly support multiple data store implementations in parallel. We've also
+seen keen interest for our proposed GSoC project which is to add a gora-Amazon
+DynamoDB module to the project and look forward to picking up traction with 
+this in the near future. Finally our Hadoop core and test dependencies have
+been upgraded to Hadoop 1.0.1 which also paves the way for the Avro upgrade
+post 0.2 release.
+
+### How has the community developed since the last report? ###
+
+We recently received (rather encouragingly) that someone struggled to
+join the user@ list. This was because this list did not exist, it has
+however now been created. We've had some questions coming into the
+project regarding the hbase module, and whether or not we were going
+to support certain features within Gora, however unfortunately none of
+these issues lead to any commits from outside the existing community.
+

+value stores, document stores and RDBMSs, and analyzing the data with
+extensive Apache Hadoop MapReduce support.
+
+### Project Releases ###
+
+The Apache Gora team was happy to announce the release of Gora 0.2.1 on
+7th August 2012. More regular Gora releases are certainly having a
+significant impact downstream within the Apache Nutch community as we
+witnessed the release of Nutch 2.0 (which relies heavily on Apache
+Gora). The Gora 0.2.1 release artifacts will be put to good use within
+the next development drive over in Nutch.
+
+### Overall Project Activity since last report ###
+
+A community decision was made to make an incremental 0.2.X release as
+it was deemed that enough ground had been achieved to justify the
+release. The release includes >10 bug fixes, about the same in
+improvements. Work has been going well with the google summer of code
+project and we look forward to reviewing this work and merging it into
+Gora trunk once the PMC is satisfied with it. Finally we have a
+significant patch for a complete re-work of the Avro implementations
+within Gora. This provides an excellent contribution to Gora and will
+certainly be included in the next release.
+
+### How has the community developed since the last report? ###
+
+The community spirit has remained positive and can only get better now
+that we are releasing on a more incremental basis. Our GSoC student
+Renato Marroquín Mogrovejo and Lewis McGibbney have submitted a joint
+proposal to the forthcoming ApacheCon EU based entirely on Gora so we
+hope that this will also enable us to build out the community. As
+briefly mentioned above, a significant Avro contribution was received
+from Ed Kohwley which is very positive.
+
+### Changes to PMC & Committers ###
+
+The Gora PMC were very pleased to invite and have Kazuomi Kashii join
+the PMC. This was the result from Kaz's significant work within the
+gora-cassandra module and various discussions with other community
+members.
+
+### PMC and Committer diversity ###
+
+We currently have committers from a wide variety of projects including,
+Nutch, Tika, OODT, Camel, Solr, Accumulo & Hadoop (this is not an exhaustive
+list). Within the scope of the 0.3 development drive is an extensive upgrade
+of the Avro code, so we will be vigilant in attracting new members. We also
+look forward to the progression of GSoC. Hopefully our student progresses
+to become part of the Gora team in due course.

+## Apache Gora Project Report November 2012 ##
+
+The Apache Gora open source framework provides an in-memory data model and
+persistence for big data. Gora supports persisting to column stores, key
+value stores, document stores and RDBMSs, and analyzing the data with
+extensive Apache Hadoop MapReduce support.
+
+### Project Releases ###
+
+The Apache Gora team was happy to announce the release of Gora 0.2.1 on
+7th August 2012. No releases have been made since.
+
+### Overall Project Activity since last report ###
+ 
+The last report quoted that good progress was being made on the GSoC
+project, these efforts have now come to fruition with the recent merge
+of a goraamazon branch with the trunk code. The entire efforts which
+went into GSoC project can now be leveraged and enjoyed by Gora users
+and dev's. In all 17 of 77 issues have been addressed since we last
+reported.
+
+### How has the community developed since the last report? ###
+
+Our GSoC student (and now PMC member and Committer) Renato Marroquín 
+Mogrovejo recently presented on Gora @ACEU, continued exposure of this
+calibre will most certainly aid in building out the community. We have also
+witnessed Gora users from outside the typical community posting
+presentations based on Gora use cases, as well as a significant portion of
+Julien Nioche's presentation (on Apache Nutch) @ACEU focussing on Gora. Not
+only is this encouraging but also shows that interest in Gora is growing as
+the technology matures.
+
+### Changes to PMC & Committers ###
+
+The Gora PMC were very pleased to invite and have Renato Marroquín
+Mogrovejo join as PMC and Committer. This was the result of a long
+summers participation in the GSoC project as well as Renato's
+interest in getting the Gora brand out there at this years ACEU. We look
+forward to more contributions which build on the great work done over the
+summer.
+
+### PMC and Committer diversity ###
+
+We currently have committers from a wide variety of Apache projects including,
+Nutch, Tika, OODT, Camel, Solr, Accumulo, Whirr & Hadoop (this is not an exhaustive
+list). Within the scope of the 0.3 development drive is an extensive upgrade
+of the Avro code, so we will be vigilant in attracting new members.

+## Apache Gora Project Report February 2013 ##
+
+The Apache Gora open source framework provides an in-memory data model and
+persistence for big data. Gora supports persisting to column stores, key
+value stores, document stores and RDBMSs, and analyzing the data with
+extensive Apache Hadoop MapReduce support.
+
+### Project Releases ###
+
+The Apache Gora team was happy to announce the release of Gora 0.2.1 on
+7th August 2012. No releases have been made since however a clear strategy
+has been established for the 0.3 release.
+
+### Overall Project Activity since last report ###
+
+Since last reporting, the PMC has geared the development drive towards
+the 0.3 release. We have addressed and resolved 28 of 33 issues
+meaning that the progression towards an RC for 0.3 is well on the
+way. We currently have two blockers which nee to be addressed before
+we can consider the 0.3 RC.
+
+### How has the community developed since the last report? ###
+
+Activity on the user@ list has been very slow since last reporting. It
+was invisaged that after ApacheConEU user interest might pick up
+slightly, however this has not materialized as we hoped.  Activity on
+dev@ has developed in line with our expectations as we move towards
+more regular Gora releases. Generally speaking more work needs to be
+done in an attempt to make it easier for people to use Gora. This is
+something which the PMC need to work on.
+
+### Changes to PMC & Committers ###
+
+The Gora PMC were very pleased to invite and have Alfonso Nishikawa
+join our ranks in early December. After working with the PMC to ensure
+smooth transition into the Apache community Alfonso is now
+contributing to Gora and making a real impact. Alfonso also joined the
+Gora PMC.
+
+### PMC and Committer diversity ###
+
+We currently have committers from a wide variety of Apache projects
+including, Nutch, Tika, OODT, Camel, Solr, Accumulo, Whirr & Hadoop
+(this is not an exhaustive list). We are still actively seeking one or
+more members to join the team from the Avro community so this will be
+a main target for us in the future post 0.3 release.

+## Apache Gora Project Report May 2013 ##
+
+The Apache Gora open source framework provides an in-memory data model and
+persistence for big data. Gora supports persisting to column stores, key
+value stores, document stores and RDBMSs, and analyzing the data with
+extensive Apache Hadoop MapReduce support.
+
+### Project Releases ###
+
+The Apache Gora team was extremely happy to announce the release of Gora 
+0.3 on 8th May 2013. VOTE'ing and the release management procedure seems
+to be working well for the community and it was great to get the code
+released.
+
+### Overall Project Activity since last report ###
+
+Generally project activity has been fairly steady. We have been working
+towards our 0.3 release with one issue (flagged upstream within Nutch)
+posing quite a problem from a technical viewpoint. The 0.3 release
+candidate was initially delayed with the intent of addressing this issue
+however a decision was made to push the RC and address it in 0.4.
+The user list has seen usual very low traffic. Our dev list has seen
+236, 110 and 55 posts (so far) for the months March, April and May
+respectively. We've recently seen some contributions and activity
+from newer community members brought to Gora by Google Summer of Code (GSoC).  
+The Gora community decided to move to Apache CMS for publishing documentation
+and we are currently deciding on when to push the staging site live. 
+
+### How has the community developed since the last report? ###
+
+We have had some interest (mainly streamed down from the Nutch community)
+regarding improving Gora for specific use cases and more generally.
+user@gora has 33 subscribers
+dev@gora has 54 subscribers
+PMC members Renato and Lewis are preparing and presenting Gora at this
+years Cassandra Summit in San Francisco in July. This is another attempt
+to build Gora out more.
+We have seen a number of students come forward and propose projects for this
+years GSoC. This is great news for Gora and we are optimistic about working
+to make the Gora community better.
+
+### Changes to PMC & Committers ###
+
+The Gora PMC were very pleased to invite and have Roland von Herget
+join our ranks on Thu, 7th Mar 2013. Roland also joined the
+Gora PMC.
+
+### PMC and Committer diversity ###
+
+We currently have committers from a wide variety of Apache projects
+including, Nutch, Tika, OODT, Camel, Solr, Accumulo, Whirr & Hadoop
+(this is not an exhaustive list).
