Date Mon, 26 Mar 2007 14:23:46 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 NoelBergman:

The comment on the change is:
Add OpenJPA and general comments (2nd attempt -- edit collision on the first)

  ''Incubator PMC members, please add your handle on the iPMC Reviewers: line if you have
taken the time and accept the report as presented. E.g. iPMC Reviewers: noel, wrowe.''
  ''DO NOT modify reviewed reports, please; add further Q & A after the crux of the original
report. This makes it simpler to preserve accepted reports.''

+ In addition to the individual projects, the Incubator is reviewing its policy on Maven repository
artifacts.  Currently, Incubator artifacts for Maven are required to be placed in a separate
repository, the goal being to ensure that users are not "accidental tourists", but have agreed
to use Incubator artifacts.  Apparently, we're not quite getting what we want from this approach,
due to how Maven works, so we're revisiting the requirement, and will likely drop the separate
repository.  Perhaps we can use artifact signing to address the matter in a future version
of Maven.  Likewise, there seems to be a consensus to move normally distributed (non-Maven)
artifacts into the mirrored ASF repository, under dist/incubator/, with the path, the artifact
names, and the disclaimer all clearly labelling the artifacts as being in the Incubator.
+ There appears to be some community tension in the Tuscany project, but the PMC consensus
is that the Mentors are working on it, so we're going to let it simmer for now.

+ This is the OpenJPA status report for the board for the three month  
+ period ending Mar 2007.
+ === OpenJPA ===
+ OpenJPA made good progress this quarter in all areas. The project has  
+ many active committers all driving toward improving functionality,  
+ stability, performance, and usability.
+ OpenJPA has met all of the technical requirements for graduation from  
+ incubation, and is now waiting for the community to feel ready. It is  
+ not clear whether the destination should be a TLP or a sub-project of  
+ another. This discussion has not been started yet. Well, I guess it  
+ just has.
+ Development
+ Development continues on the 0.9.7 release, which will contain many  
+ bug fixes and performance improvements. Kevin Sutter has been  
+ volunteered to cut the release once we decide there is enough done on  
+ the list.
+ The JSR 220 TCK was passed.
+ JIRA now contains numerous proposed bug fixes and feature  
+ enhancements, tentatively assigned to release buckets.
+ Infrastructure
+ The project is running smoothly with all systems green.
+ Community
+ One new committer was added (Michael Dick).
+ Three new PPMC members were added (Kevin Sutter, Marc Prud'hommeaux,  
+ and Abe White).
