참조:

All,

Below is the current draft of the incubator board report.  Remember, this
is a community driven effort so please feel free to make changes as you see
fit on the wiki ( https://wiki.apache.org/incubator/July2016 )

We currently have 4 non-reporting podlings.  This is obviously concerning
as a number of them are repeat offenders.

Incubator PMC report for July 2016

The Apache Incubator is the entry path into the ASF for projects and
codebases wishing to become part of the Foundation's efforts.

There are 58 podlings currently undergoing incubation.  We have one
podling planning to graduate this month and added four podlings to the
roster.  June was a busy month, adding two IPMC member, and completing
twelve releases, in addition to other activities.

* Community

  New IPMC members:

 - Jochen Wiedmann
 - Tim Ellison

  People who left the IPMC:

 - N/A

* New Podlings

 - CarbonData
 - DistributedLog
 - Juneau
 - Pirk

* Graduations

  The board has motions for the following:

  - Kudu

* Releases

  The following releases entered distribution during the month of
  June:

  - 2016-06-01 Apache Range 0.5.3-incubating
  - 2016-06-03 Apache Trafodion 2.0.0-incubating
  - 2016-06-06 Apache Mynewt 0.9.0-incubating

  - 2016-06-30 Apache Taverna 3.1.0-incubating
  - 2016-06-30 Apache Kudu (incubating) 0.9.1

* IP Clearance

 - N/A

* Legal / Trademarks

 - An audit was conducted of podling websites to see how far off they are
compared to the Incubator's branding guide.  Eleven podlings were found to
be in complete violation and requests to correct have been issued.  Most
have already corrected the issue.
 - Justin has provided a summary of building NOTICE and LICENSE files in
the form of a screencast for podlings to use as reference.

* Infrastructure

 - There are open questions around the usage of GitHub issues for issue
tracking, it is unclear if it is a valid tool to use.

* Miscellaneous

 - A vote was started to retire the CMDA podling.  It was later canceled,
giving them another three months to try to work through community issues.
Public mailing list participation has increased as a part of this result.

* Credits

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

  1. Getting an Apache release out.
  2. Podling name search has to happen.
  3. Verify distribution rights

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
aware of?

  We've done a lot of work on distribution rights (3), but we need to wrap
  it up.

  We've been pushing out our release due to stability concerns and the need
  for a testing framework

How has the community developed since the last report?

  - Since our last podling report 1 month ago, we grew our contributors from
    148 to 160.
  - In June 2016 we had 56 commits.
  - We organized a meet up at WePay. We also had one before at Airbnb.
  - We had several committers meetings.
  - 1 new committer. 2 offers were given but 1 was declined.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  - Migrated all files to contain Apache 2.0 license headers.
  - Replaced charting library that was non-Apache 2.0 compliant (a large
    effort).
  - Release Airflow incubator website, and added appropriate branding and
    disclaimers.

Date of last release:

  None (had a non-Apache release on 2016-06-13)*

  * Release was discussed and approved here:

Gossip

Gossip is a system to form peer-to-peer networks using the gossip
protocol.

Gossip has been incubating since 2016-04-28.

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

  1. Establish an Apache website for Gossip that makes it easy for new
     users and contributors to get started.
  2. Facilitate discussions and build the protocol specification and
     implementation
  3. Produce a usable release

aware of?

  No

How has the community developed since the last report?

  We have had activity in the community from two people who have engaged
  in working on smaller tasks. We are discussion electing them as project
  committers.

  We have created and resolved a number of tickets: 7 created, 3 resolved.

  We have had some discussion around made some traction around implementing
  the protocol via transports other than UDP.

  We are currently working on the web page which should attract more
  interest.

HAWQ

Apache HAWQ is a Hadoop native SQL query engine that combines the key
technological advantages of MPP database with the scalability and
convenience of Hadoop. HAWQ reads data from and writes data to HDFS
natively.  HAWQ delivers industry-leading performance and linear
scalability. It provides users the tools to confidently and successfully
interact with petabyte range data sets. HAWQ provides users with a complete,
standards compliant SQL interface.

HAWQ has been incubating since 2015-09-04.

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

  1. Produce our first Apache Release
  2. 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. Infrastructure migration: create Jenkins projects that build HAWQ
     binary, source tarballs, and run feature tests including at least
     installcheck-good tests for each commit (HAWQ-127).

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
aware of?

  Everything seems to be smooth, nothing urgent at this time.

How has the community developed since the last report?

  1. we have seen significant increase of communication and collaboration
     across the whole community from last several weeks. The community
     becomes more open for discussion around the roadmap, various features
     that committers are working on, and infrastructure enhancements for the
     project.
  2. One meetup: Zeppelin meets MADlib & HAWQ
     (
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p8V10IukBes&list=PL62pIycqXx-Qf6EXu5FDxUgXW23BHOtcQ&index=6
)
  3. The PPMC was made aware of an erroneous use of Apache HAWQ (incubating)
     trademark by a vendor doing research with an older, eponymous Pivotal
     product. The PPMC is working with a vendor and ASF's VP of Branding to
     resolve the issue

How has the project developed since the last report?

  1. The first release candidate has been proposed and it is under the
     voting process on the dev mailing list
  2. New features added include snappy compression for AO tables, HAWQ
     register feature for registering data into HAWQ native tables
  3. The build system has been simplified a lot by making some components as
     optional (for example, pl/r, orca et al)
  4. The community is consolidating the testing frameworks including
     installcheck tests and gtest into gtest based framework.
  5. Including the incubating disclaimer on Apache HAWQ website based on the
     podling branding guidelines

Date of last release:

  We have not had a release yet.

iota

Open source system that enables the orchestration of IoT devices.

iota has been incubating since 2016-01-20.

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

  1. Building a community now that we have completed source code upload of
     one for the main components of the system.
  2. Moving towards an initial release before the end of the year
  3. Working on IP clearance for the release

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
aware of?

  None

How has the community developed since the last report?

  Good input from Anatole Tresch. We have three new contributors Barbara
  Gomes and two other individuals all have made a contribution this month.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  We have uploaded source code for a major component of iota (the Fey
  engine). We have also uploaded a few basic components that can be used
  with Fey. We will be adding more components and we hope that individuals
  who download Fey can also begin the development of their own Fey
  components (called Performers). We hope they will share their Performers
  with the Community. We will be creating requests for the community to
  develop specific performers. E.g. an ActiveMQ performer.

content types using a common framework, and for creating sophisticated
self-documenting REST interfaces and microservices using VERY little code.

Juneau has been incubating since 2016-06-24.

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

  1. Finish up legal paperwork with IBM legal.
  2. Build up community with non-IBM and non-Salesforce contributors.
  3. Create website and SCM repositories.

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
aware of?

  There are some questions as to what our options are for bug reporting.
  It's not clear if Jira is our only 'practical' solution or if GitHub
  Issues is also an option.

How has the community developed since the last report?

  This is the first report.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  Still in the process of setting up the website.  Git repo is on hold until
  legal paperwork is complete.

Metron

Metron integrates a variety of open source big data technologies in order to
offer a centralized tool for security monitoring and analysis. Metron
provides capabilities for log aggregation, full packet capture indexing,
storage, advanced behavioral analytics and data enrichment, while applying
the most current threat-intelligence information to security telemetry
within a single platform.

Metron has been incubating since 2015-12-06.

Three most important issues to address in the move towards
Graduation.

  - Building a diverse community of developers for Metron
  - Getting security practitioners to provide feedback on requirements
  - Make an Apache release

Any issues that the Incubator PMC or ASF Board might wish/need to
be aware of

  - We are currently trying to produce our second Apache release of Metron

How has the community developed since the last report

  - In the process of adding one additional committer, Michael Miklavcic
  - We accepted numerous contributions from non-committers interested in
    Metron, including additional parsers and sample telemetries
  - We host a weekly UI working session and were able to source requirements
    for a new UI prototype
  - We hosted a Metron meetup, which received a lot of interest from the
    community
  - We saw an uptick in interest from the community on the dev boards which
    corresponds to people trying the product prior to an official release,
    which is a good sign.
  - We are receiving community JIRAs for bug reports and security issues

How has the project developed since the last report

  - We closed over 100 Jiras and are in the latest stages of releasing our
    second Apache release.
  - We added additional installation automation and documentation
  - We added additional features around parsing and a rules engine through a
    DSL called Stellar
  - We are adding infrastructure called "Model as a Service" to uptake ML
    models

Milagro

Distributed Cryptography; M-Pin protocol for Identity and Trust

Milagro has been incubating since 2015-12-21.

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

  1.  Bring regular day-to-day activity to Apache resources.
  2.  Make a first Apache release.
  3.  Attract community.

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
aware of?

  The project has resources outside Apache, including a prospective main
  documentation website milagro.io.  This is not branded as Apache, but is
  considered to be owned by Milagro.

How has the community developed since the last report?

  Conference presentations from key team members, including at
  ApacheCon/Vancouver and forthcoming in Tokyo, seek to build awareness
  among Apache and open source communities.

  There appears also to be recent new community interest around the
  pre-Apache project at Github.  This should probably be redirected to
  Apache, but we need to check.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  Several existing repos formerly developed by Miracl at Github have been
  imported to Apache, and are mirrored to Github.  These were packaged to be
  near release-ready prior to import, and we are looking to review readiness
  for a release.

  The majority of work that has taken place at Apache has been the
  development of a Milagro web site, and project documentation at
  milagro.io.  Code development appears to have continued at github,
  apparently due to confusion.  This was discovered just today, so we plan
  to follow up tomorrow.

Date of last release:

  N/A

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

  No new members elected during the period.  NTT colleagues named in the
  proposal have joined.

Shepherd/Mentor notes:

  Nick Kew:

    I am currently investigating whether recent community activity in the
    pre-Apache github resources relates to code that has been contributed to
    Milagro.  If I find it is, I shall attempt to encourage that activity to
    move to Apache.

Rya

Rya (pronounced "ree-uh" /re?/) is a cloud-based RDF triple store that
supports SPARQL queries. Rya is a scalable RDF data management system built
on top of Accumulo. Rya uses novel storage methods, indexing schemes, and
query processing techniques that scale to billions of triples across
multiple nodes.  Rya provides fast and easy access to the data through
SPARQL, a conventional query mechanism for RDF data.

Rya has been incubating since 2015-09-18.

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

  1. Become familiar with the release process and have a first release as
     part of the Apache Foundation
  2. Expand the documentation to be more formalized and more representative
     of the current codebase.
  3. Add new committers to the project.

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
aware of?

  No

How has the community developed since the last report?

  * We have a Rya "office hour" teleconference every other week. Users and
    developers can ask questions, receive answers, discuss ideas for future
    developments. The minutes are sent to the dev@ list.   Attendance at
    these meetings has grown beyond existing committers of the project to
    include new contributors.  New contributors have led the discussion for
    new features that they have helped develop.  We have also begun posting
    minutes and reference slides from the meetings on confluence to provide
    reference documentation to new contributors.
  * We have more PRs from non-committers which are integrated into the
    repository
  * Developed a more extensive Rya website and confluence page for
    documentation for new contributors

How has the project developed since the last report?

  * Integrated Rya with Apache build process -- Rya is currently being
    built by Jenkins on Apache servers
  * Resolved a handful of issues that users have encountered.
  * Upgrades for versions for a number of dependencies
  * Committed features: advanced OWL forward chaining reasoning tool for
    Accumulo based Rya, extensions to pre-computed join capabilities for
    more complex SPARQL queries, additions of timestamps for Mongo backed
    Rya.
