Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Incubator Wiki" for change notification.

The following page has been changed by RoyFielding:

+ Much interest and new life.  Rana is back and making changes. Three or four non-committers
are contributing in mind share and patches. Healthy debate on component architecture reminiscent
of traditional Apache conversations.

+ === Graffito ===
+ Lot of work underway :
+  * working on JCR mapping for Graffito objects
+  * port under way for using Graffito for storing Jetspeed page descriptions in a Graffito
managed repository (effort lead by Jetspeed team)
+  * several new names have appeared on mailing-list and start contributing patches and join
the design discussions
+ We plan to have a Graffito binary bundled with upcoming Jetspeed 2 M4 release (required
if PSML integration is complete
+ for M4)
+ If community development continues its progress as expected, I think we'll add couple of
new committers this quarter and probably ask for exiting Incubator early next year.
+ - Raphael Luta

+ === Harmony ===
+ Project is moving along.  Recent quarter has focused on creating the contribution and committer
process for the project.  The result has been the creation of an "Authorized Contributor Questionnaire"
to allow contributors to declare what portions of the project codebase they could have problems
working in due to contraints imposed on them through prior work. (For example, being under
NDA to an employer.)  We also have worked out the process for accepting "bulk contributions",
those works that have been created elsewhere and are being donated to Harmony.  This process
builds on the standard Apache Incubator process - a CCLA or SG is still required and registered.
+ Other highlights : 
+  * We have accepted 3 new code contributions 
+   * Componentization proof of concept 
+   * "bootVM" a new basic VM nucleus
+   * "JCHEVM", a re-licensing of JCVM
+  * We have added two new committers
+  * We expect to continue to add new committers and new code at an accelerating rate

+ === Hermes ===
+ ----
+ === Jackrabbit ===
+ The Apache Jackrabbit podling is slowly recovering from the impact of finalizing
+ JSR 170, initializing JSR 283 (the next JCR specification revision EG),
+ and the summer holiday schedule.  We are in the process of reconfiguring
+ our source directories for an eventual 1.0 release and Maven 2 support.
+ No new committers were added this quarter, though we expect more to be
+ added soon.
+ - Roy T. Fielding
+ ----
+ === JDO ===
+ Project is doing very well.  There is ample activity and I expect that JDO will be able
to graduate from the Incubator in the upcoming quarter.
+  * Project has active committers from 4 different companies, and 2 with unknown affiliation.
+  * Project has an active contributor from an unknown affiliation.
+  * Project status information is up to date.
+  * Project is discussing near-term release of code.
+ - geir
+ ----
+ === JuiCE ===
+ No signs of life. There is some interest in WSS4J to use parts for the code with a modified
version of Bouncy Castle to speed things up. Let's see the people involved start contributing.
+ ----
+ === log4net ===
+  * Log4net has elected Rob Grabowski ( as a new committer. This brings
the number of active committers to 3, helping meet incubator exit criteria.
+  * We have recently migrated from CVS to SVN.
+  * We are working towards the next maintenance release  with a focus on code quality and
improving the available end user documentation.
+ ----
+ === log4php ===
+  * All reported bugs have been fixed so it's time to prepare the first stable release.
+  * The new php5 version of log4php is ready for the initial import into svn repository.
At first, it will support only a minimal set of functionalities.
+ ----
+ === Lucene ===
+ The latest release is still 1.4.3.  We are preparing for release of version 1.9.  A LOT
of good contributions and patched have been submitted to JIRA and the lists are increasingly
more active.  We/I plan on going through as many contributions and patches in the coming weeks
(October/November), reviewing and committing them, and then making a release.
+ - Otis Gospodnetić
+ ----
+ === Lucene4c ===
+ Not much has happened in the last few months.  Most participants have been off working on
other things.  Considering the lack of interest in the project recently, we may want to think
about closing it down until such time as developers have the time and energy to turn it into
a more useful product, which seems to be a necessary first step in order to turn it into a
sustainable community.
+ - Garrett Rooney
+ ----
+ === mod_ftp ===
+ The infrastructure work has been completed: mailing lists and SVN repos have been requested
and created.
+ The IP clearances for the module codebase have been received and filed, and the source code
has been imported into the mod_ftp SVN repo. Work has started on changing the build environment
to a more "normal" ASF module setup.
+ -- Jim Jagielski
+ ----
+ === Roller ===
+    * Developed minor Roller 1.3 release and voted to release it
+    * Developed major Roller 2.0 release with group blogging an new UI
+    * Added new committer Elias Torres
+    * Added status page on incubator site:

+ === stdcxx ===
+ Stdcxx status report for the calendar quarter ending in 9/2005:
+ This is the first quarterly report for stdcxx.
+ Since the  inception of  the stdcxx podling  the stdcxx  community has
+ substantially completed  the migration of  the project from  the Rogue
+ Wave infrastructure to the  Apache infrastructure. Notably, the source
+ code   of  the   library,   the  accompanying   utility  programs,   a
+ comprehensive set of example programs, as well as the complete project
+ documentation in HTML have been transferred to Subversion.  All source
+ files  have  been modified  to  reflect  the  Apache license.   A  bug
+ tracking database has  been created in Jira and  is being actively and
+ extensively used  to track issues  and tasks. The  appropriate mailing
+ lists  have been  created. All  new stdcxx  committers  have submitted
+ their Contributor License Agreements.
+ In September the stdcxx development community with the approval of the
+ Incubator PMC published the first  and final snapshot of the initially
+ contributed sources, labeled version 4.1.2.
+ At this time  the stdcxx community is working  toward version 4.1.3 of
+ the project. The goals of this  effort are to migrate the project test
+ suite from the Rogue Wave test  harness to the new stdcxx test driver,
+ to complete the transfer of the  tests from the Rogue Wave source code
+ repository to  Subversion, and to  complete the implementation  of the
+ configuration  and build  infrastructure for  Microsoft  Windows.  The
+ estimated time-frame  for reaching  these goals is  the first  half of
+ 2006.
+ The objective of the stdcxx community  for the next quarter is to work
+ on  further  increasing  the  visibility of  the  project,  attracting
+ additional   contributors,  and  growing   the  active   community  of
+ developers around it.

+ === Synapse ===
+ The Synapse project had a F2F meeting in Cupertino, CA to get initial views on direction
and overall relationship to Axis2 etc.. The notes are [
here]. The community is slowly starting to discuss stuff and get going in the
mailing list; since its only been a few weeks since the start it will take more time to get
fully functional and effective. 
+ We expect to have a much more interesting report by the next F2F.
+ ----
+ === TSIK ===
+ While the TSIK project has not gained momentum as quickly as initially hoped, there has
been some usable interaction with on how to modularize TSIK, to both break out
components for potential common use, as well as reuse existing ASF code (SOAP messaging stack,
for example).
+ The next few months will be crucial for TSIK. There is increasing interest in various types
of identity protocols -- federated or not -- and how they are usable within web services (see
TSIK road map for further discussion). This could be an area where TSIK could be a driving
+ ----
+ === Woden ===
+ We posted a Woden milestone plan in September covering M1 at end-Sept through to M5 in Jan
2006. Completion of the initial project objective, full WSDL 2.0 functionality, is targetted
for M4 end-Nov. M1 was release on Mon 3 Oct and included most but not all of the planned scopd.
M3 and M4 will be busy periods. M5 and future plans will emerge as we approach M4 and start
thinking about other Woden objectives like WSDL 1.1 conversion and StAX XML parsing for the
Axis community. We are using the woden-dev mailing list for communication and discussion and
recently held our first conference call - although not all participants could make the call,
it helped confirm the Milestone plan and resolve some technical issues. Most of the development
is currently being done by 2 committers and this may continue up to M3/M4, by which time we
will have a suitable base for others to start building on.
