Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "April2006" by GeirMagnussonJr
Date Mon, 17 Apr 2006 23:34:52 GMT
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 GeirMagnussonJr:

  == Harmony ==
+ Harmony is going well, so well that it is not easy to sum up all the things
+ happening. There is, however, currently nothing requiring board or incubator
+ PMC attention. Highlights for the last quarter:
+  * no releases.
+  * We have welcomed one new PPMC member:
+    * Tim Ellison
+  * we have welcomed three new committers:
+    * Mikhail Loenko
+    * George Harley
+    * Stepan Mishura
+    and expect to add quite a few more in the next quarter.
+  * we have received and processed several more bulk contributions from 
+    different parties, including for beans, regex, math, jndi, logging, prefs, 
+    sql, math(again), crypto, and rmi (twice), hundreds upon hundreds of unit 
+    tests, an eclipse plugin for doing harmony development, and more. Our 
+    framework for accepting these contributions (based on jira, svn, and faxes
+    and documented on the harmony website) seems to be working well.
+  * there was concern over a potential copyright infringement within our JCHEVM
+    component. This concern has been addressed by receiving a code donation for
+    the potentially infringing files, without having to resort to lawyers and to
+    the mutual satisfaction of all parties and under the watchful eye of the
+    Incubator PMC.
+  * we have begun collaborating with the SableVM community, which has relicensed
+    its VM under the ALv2 (the related previous potential licensing/copyright 
+    issues have been resolved without having to resort to lawyers and to the 
+    mutual satisfaction of all parties and under the watchful eye of the
+    Incubator PMC).
+  * we have seen a lot of discussion on how to do testing, how to use jira, etc
+    etc, as more and more developers gear up to contribute to the project. These
+    kinds of discussions are going well and the collaborative consensus-based
+    process is emerging.
+  * we have identified the (future) need for some serious build and testing 
+    server infrastructure but have not approached the infrastructure team about
+    this yet. IBM is currently hosting a Maven Continuum server to run the
+    harmony tests, and sending the results to our mailing lists.
  == JuiCE ==
  Good activity in the previous quarter.  Werner Dittman was voted in as a committer and has
been refactoring the initial code into a more long term format.  A test build has also been
created on a Win32 platform.
