Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "OODTProposal" by chrismattmann
Date Thu, 31 Dec 2009 22:22:01 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

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

The "OODTProposal" page has been changed by chrismattmann.
http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/OODTProposal?action=diff&rev1=8&rev2=9

--------------------------------------------------

  We feel that the time is ripe to bring OODT into Apache and to grow the community of developers
who maintain OODT. We feel that Incubation will bring a slew of industry-based developers
(and even those in academia, and government) who have no prior experience with OODT, but who
could use OODT at their jobs and who are attracted to the brand name and community that Apache
brings. We want to attract such developers to become part of the core OODT development team,
and project management aspect.
  
  === Inexperience with Open Source ===
- All the initial developers have worked on open source before and at least one (Mattmann)
is a committer and PMC members in the Apache Lucene ecosystem. Sean Kelly is a well-respected
Plone committer and has made several open source contributions over the years to FreeBSD and
other software. Foster, McCleese and Woollard have all contributed to Apache projects by way
of email, mailing lists, issue reporting and testing.

  === Homogenous Developers ===
  The initial developers come from a variety of backgrounds and with a variety of needs for
the proposed framework.

  OODT is also related to Apache projects involving databases, such as the [[http://db.apache.org/|Apache
DB]] project, however scientific data is not limited to traditional DBMS'es and involves both
structured and un-structured information. However, there is likely much leveraging that can
occur as OODT can be updated to remove Hibernate-like dependencies, and replace them with
[[http://db.apache.org/derby/|Derby]]-like dependencies.
  
  === A Excessive Fascination with the Apache Brand ===
- All of us are familiar with Apache and have a respect for its brand and community. Though
all of the proposed committers besides Mattmann have not participated in Apache projects as
committers, and PMC members, many of them (McCleese, Foster, Woollard, Kelly) have contributed
via issue comments, patches, and tests for Apache projects (including Maven, Tika, SOLR, and
Lucene). Furthermore, some of the proposed committers (Kelly) are major contributors in other
open source communities (e.g., [[http://plone.org|Plone]] and Python). We feel that the Apache
Software Foundation is a natural home for a project like this. OODT brings a credible, major
grid-based software into the Apache community, and Apache brings a huge community of eager
and world-class developers to help grow OODT's strengths and applicability across projects
and domains.

  == Documentation ==
  There is a wealth of documentation available on OODT. The best starting point is the existing
OODT JPL website (which will be ported to be sync'ed or just a pointer to the Apache website)http://oodt.jpl.nasa.gov
