Dear Wiki user,

The comment on this change is: updated the report for submission to the July board meeting.

+ = Status report for the Apache HttpComponents project - July 2010 =
+ This status report for the Apache HttpComponents project was originally due in May 2010.
However due to reasons described below, this version - updated until July 2010 - is submitted
for the board meeting in July 2010.
  
  == Status ==
+ Overall the project remains very active. However, the actual project composition can be
seen as suboptimal.  The number of active committers is quite low.
  
+ The PMC has reached consensus to change the PMC chair, and is submitting a resolution to
the board to this effect.
- Overall the project remains very active. However, the actual project composition can be
seen as suboptimal. 
- The number of active committers is quite low.  
  
  == Releases ==
- 
  We have had two release since the last report:
  
   * 3 April 2010 - HttpComponents HttpCore 4.1-beta1
@@ -16, +16 @@

   * 19 May 2010 - HttpComponents HttpClient 4.1-alpha2
  
  == Community ==
+ __Project Management Committee __
  
- Both HttpCore and HttpClient have an active and diverse user community. Just recently there
has been a number of 
- significant code contributions by community members. For example, an entire HTTP caching
module has been recently 
- contributed to the project by a group of external contributors. At the same time only a
few committers actively 
- participate in a day to day management of the project and code development.
+ The project unfortunately missed submission of a status report for the scheduled board meeting
in May; and thereafter for the meeting in June - although the PMC had created a draft report
by that time in the absence of the PMC chair. After failing to effectively contact the PMC
chair, the PMC has reached consensus on a proposed  successor for the role. A resolution requesting
the board to change the PMC chair is submitted herewith.

+ __Project Committers and Users__

contributors. At the same time only a few committers actively  participate in a day to day

+ 
+ A question has been raised [http://www.mail-archive.com/dev@hc.apache.org/msg04365.html]
during a previous release cycle whether Maven artifacts (which includes source) should be
voted on by the PMC. However, it has been shown that as these Maven artifacts can be recreated
with the main source distribution (zip and tarball) - which is voted by the PMC, that the
Maven artifacts does not require to be voted by the PMC.
  
  == Development ==
+ HttpCore 4.1 is progressing well toward its target. The final 4.1 release can be expected
within next 6 months.  HttpClient is also being actively developed. There is a good number
of external contributors providing valuable  feedback and significant code contributions on
a regular basis. Several frequently asked for features have been  added to HttpClient. The
4.1 API is still considered experimental and will require more work to finalise.  HttpClient
4.1 is expected to enter BETA development phase sometime this year or early next year.
