Subject Last-minute April podling report
Date Wed, 06 Apr 2016 04:39:41 GMT
Hi all -

Below is my draft report for Impala for April. I'm going to copy it
straight away to the wiki (, so
please make changes there as you see fit.



Impala is a high-performance C++ and Java SQL query engine for data stored
in Apache Hadoop-based clusters.

Impala has been incubating since 2015-12-03.

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

  1. Transition of development workflows to ASF (see
  2. Initial release as incubating project.
  3. Community growth

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


How has the community developed since the last report?

We continue to see an uptick in external contributions, with two patches
from new contributors this month. One contributor pleasingly reported it
was "great to work closely with Impala community".

How has the project developed since the last report?

  We have put together a list of tasks required to move development of
Impala from
  Cloudera's infrastructure to the ASF. Since Impala was already a
well-established project before the Incubator proposal, there is perhaps
more decoupling required than for more nascent projects. The list is at, and is being actively
worked on. Note that this doesn't cover the standard podling tasks (like
name search, etc).

Date of last release:

  None since entering incubation.

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

  None since entering incubation.
