Subject ]REPORT] HBase - April 2018
Date Tue, 03 Apr 2018 22:43:11 GMT

HBase submits a report to the ASF board once a quarter, to inform the board
about project health. This is my second quarterly report as your PMC chair.
I'm sending the report to the user@ and dev@ mailing lists because you are
the project, and for transparency. If you have any questions about the
report or the running of the project, you can pose them to me or any other
PMC member or committer, or send an email to private@hbase.apache.org,
which every PMC member subscribes to.


HBase is a distributed column-oriented database built on top of Hadoop
Common and Hadoop HDFS.

hbase-thirdparty is a set of internal artifacts used by the project to
mitigate the impact of our dependency choices on the wider ecosystem.


Board-only information removed from public report.

Development toward a HBase 2.0.0 release is going well, with the second

stability and performance improvements, as well as documentation for new
features and improvements.
