Dear Wiki user,

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

  === Lucene.Net ===
- Lucene.Net is a port of the Java Lucene to C#.  The API, algorithm and index are cross compatible.
- Incubation
- * Lucene.Net has been under incubation since April 2006
- Community
- * An active, but a small community exists.  The challenge has been to bring in folks who
are willing to contribute to the code beside myself.
- Code and documentation
- * The code base continues to develop and new releases are being made.  Recently Lucene.Net
2.0 "final" was release as well as Highlighter.Net 2.0 and Snowball.Net 2.0.  In addition,
for each of those components, there corresponding MSDN style documentation is also release.
  === NMaven ===
- NMaven develops plugins and integration for Maven to make building and using .NET languages
a first-class citizen in Maven.
+ ----
- Incubating since: 2006-11-17
+ === Qpid ===
- This is the second monthly report for this podling.
+ ---
+ === Roller ===
- Dan Fabulich (listed on original proposal) had his account created and was added to the
committer list.
- Healthy discussion taking part about design on the dev@ list.
- No new committers to date.
  === UIMA ===
- UIMA is a component framework for the analysis of unstructured content such as text, audio
and video.
- UIMA was accepted for incubation on October 10, 2006
- Top 3 things to resolve before graduation:
-   1. Complete code transition to Apache, do a release with all IP issues cleared 
-   1. Attract diverse, active committers 
-   1. Do a migration tool to enable migration to the Apache version 
- UIMA's incubation status file is here:
- Some recent activity:
-   * The UIMA Sandbox has been populated with some example annotators 
-   * A person new to the project, Jörn Kottmann, has written an Eclipse plugin he wants
to contribute - we're going through the steps to bring this into the UIMA Sandbox. He has
submitted a software grant, and we're awaiting it's acknowledgement (as of Wednesday, Jan
-   * We expect to do a release next month, and have been working to get all the little details
needed for this completed.
- We expect that we will need some assistance in doing our first release, to verify we're
following the rules properly. We will start by using our mentors, and then ask the incubator
PMC to review the proposed release.
- === Qpid ===
- The Apache Qpid Project provides an open and interoperable, multiple
- language implementations of the Advanced Messaged Queuing Protocol
- (AMQP) specification
- Date of entry to the Incubator : 2006-09
- Top three items to resolve before graduation
-  1. Defining a policy for adding new committers
-  2. Understanding the details between JCP and announce compliance
-  3. Making sure we are comfortable with the working relationship between Qpid and the AMQP
Working Group.
- Our STATUS file needs to be updated wrt this report, which will be done in the comming weeks
as we add our first group of new committers.
- * Any legal, cross-project or personal issues that still need to be
- addressed?
- The whole project has not gone through release review and the license files and notices
need to be checked for all languages and components.
- * Latest developments.
-  * Since entering into incubation we have had one release of the java code base (M1). 
-  * We have migrated our build system from ant to maven.
-  * Development has been moving forward. with improvements in memory footprint management
passing the JMS TCK in with the java broker.
-  * Addition of .NET client
-  * Contributions from 5+ non committers
-  * The creation of the first draft of Web site
-  * General progress on all models in the code base
- * Plans and expectations for the next period?
- During the next period we plan on improving the stability of all language variants. 
- Working towards a standard interoperability test suite and improved test code coverage of
the whole code base.
- To this end we would like to get all the languages passing each others tests.
- We will also be pushing forward official JMS compliance certification for both brokers.
- Would like to create a release of the full code set.
- === Roller ===
- We've been very busy with new feature development for Roller, but we
- have also spent time preparing Roller for graduation and now that
- we've got an Apache web and wiki presence, two of the last items on
- our checklist, we feel that we're just about ready to call for a vote.
- More about that later. For now, here's some status on our
- accomplishments since our last report in July 2006:
- '''Roller 3.0 released'''. We detailed the new features of Roller 3.0 in
- the last report. They include a completely new rendering system with a
- new URL structure, new template models/macros, better multi-language
- blog support and a new blog-based front page. We released Roller 3.0
- on November 7, 2006.
- '''Roller 3.1 development'''. Following Roller 3.0, we developed another
- major new release of Roller. The major new features are full-support
- for weblog tagging, a better rich-text editor based on Xinha,
- full-preview and bulk-delete of comments. We've made three release
- candidate releases and with RC3 we're just about ready to make the
- final release.
- '''Established Roller web presence at'''. We have now
- established a web site for Roller at Keeping with our
- community traditions, this site will be a simple front-page that links
- into a wiki where actual content will be created and updated.
- '''Established Roller wiki space at'''. We have also started to
- migrate wiki content from the old Roller wiki to the new wiki site at
- We chose Confluence because we want the wiki to serve as a
- tightly controlled content management system (similar  to the way we
- were using JSPWiki before).
- We have '''almost completed a JPA implementation of Roller back-end'''.
- The new implementation is passing about 95% of  the back-end unit
- tests and we are actively working on getting it ready to test and
- compare against our current Hibernate implementation.
- As part of our '''community building efforts''' we presented talk on
- Roller at ApacheCon US 2006 and have submitted multiple Roller-related
- proposals to ApacheCon EU and JavaOne 2007.
