Subject Apache HAWQ Incubator April 2017 report
Date Mon, 17 Apr 2017 15:36:43 GMT
For your reading enjoyment. Here is the Apache HAWQ Incubator April 2017
report (below) from the *Incubator PMC Board Report - April 2017 *(prepared
by John D. Ament <johndament@apache.org>)*.*  We have a lot of positive
momentum behind the project. I am looking forward to watching HAWQ continue
to grow.


*Ed **Espino*

--------------------HAWQApache HAWQ is a Hadoop native SQL query
engine that combines the keytechnological advantages of MPP database
with the scalability and convenienceof Hadoop. HAWQ reads data from
and writes data to HDFS natively.  HAWQdelivers industry-leading
performance and linear scalability. It providesusers the tools to
confidently and successfully interact with petabyte rangedata sets.
HAWQ provides users with a complete, standards compliant
SQLinterface.HAWQ has been incubating since 2015-09-04.Three most
important issues to address in the move towards graduation:  1.
Continue to improve the project's release cadence. To this end we
plan on expanding automation services to support increased
developer participation.  2. Continue to expand the community, by
adding new contributors and     focusing on making sure that there's a
much more robust level of     conversations and discussions happening
around roadmaps and     feature development on the public dev mailing
list.  3. Expand release artifacts to include the delivery of binary
  artifacts. We expect the project to significantly refine the
binary release process in several key areas.Any issues that the
Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to beaware of?  1. Nothing
urgent at this time.How has the community developed since the last
report?  1. Two Meetups took place in Beijing, China:     * HAWQ
Meetup (January 12, 2017)       - HAWQ2.X New Features - Yanqing Wen,
Pivotal HAWQ Senior         Engineer       - HAWQ Elasticity - Huan
Zhang, Pivotal HAWQ Senior Engineer       - Data Lake and HAWQ
Integration - Wenbin Lu, EMC Big Data         Senior Engineer     *
HAWQ Meetup (March 23, 2017)       - Apache HAWQ Exploration Step by
Step - Configuration, Build,         Deployment and Debug by Xiang
Sheng, Pivotal Software         Engineer       - Transaction
Management in Apache HAWQ by Ming Li, Pivotal         Senior Software
Engineer       - Max Compute - A SQL engine based on Apache HAWQ by
Chen Xia,         Database Expert in Alibaba Cloud  2. A significant
push by the dev community has been made to review     and merge the
project's Pull Requests (PR). As of March 30, 2017,     eight of the
nine open PRs have been opened in the last ten     days. The PR opened
on Sep 2016 is targeted to be merged after     the Apache
release.  3. Community contribution highlight(s):     * Leveraging the
extensible PXF design, a JDBC PXF plugin       was contributed by
Devin Jia (github id: jiadexin). This       contribution came from the
community and not from the       company which originally donated HAWQ
to the ASF.  4. Recent porting efforts:     - Persistent Systems
Engineers are actively engaging the dev       community on their HAWQ
porting efforts to RHEL 7.1 on S390       platform.     - Ubuntu
16.04.2 LTS (Xenial Xerus) porting notes have been       published on
dev list.  5. Ruilong Huo has volunteered to be the Release Manager
(RM) for     the upcoming releaseHow has the project developed
since the last report?  1. Apache HAWQ (source code only) has
been released.  2. Apache HAWQ release proposed (source code
and first     binary release).  This is the 3rd release as an
incubating     project. The binaries will be Hadoop vendor agnostic
providing     support for the Apache Bigtop 1.2.0 distribution.

Comments:             Podling seems to be a few months away from
fulfilling all of the             graduation
requirements.IPMC/Shepherd notes:  johndament: The podling is
extremely active, I'm not sure there's anything              left
blocking them from graduation.
