Dear Wiki user,

The "June2010" page has been changed by ScottComer.


  = Etch =
- (project add text here)
+ Etch was accepted into Incubator on 2 September 2008.
+ Etch is a cross-platform, language- and transport-independent framework for building and
consuming network services. The Etch toolset includes a network service description language,
a compiler, and binding libraries for a variety of programming languages.
+ This last reporting period saw little activity (0 commits, 0 releases). We're finding it
hard to regain our momentum after the dissolution of our team. James and Scott are using etch
in their current projects, and Youngjin would like to pick up the c-binding. What we lack
is the organizational energy to get things moving.
+ Holger Grandy and Michael Fitzner have submitted a c-binding for us to examine. Youngjin
is going to be looking at it. I've been shaking down the etch 1.1 release candidate in my
current project, and as soon as I can get my head out I plan to fix the final administrative
issues of the 1.1 release and try to kick it out the door.
+ We recently voted to accept Holger Grandy and Michael Fitzner as committers and ppmc members.
They have submitted an Etch C Binding.
+ Release 1.1 is ready but needs some administrative polish before it is *done*.
+ Release 1.2 is next in the pipeline.
+ Our continuous integration build problem will only be solved by one of us hosting it at
our new gigs. James and Scott are looking into this. [GavinMcDonald adds: I'm looking into
adding Etch to CI stuff at ASF]
+ Outstanding items:
+ More community.. we have been Cisco-centered with just a few nibbles outside of Cisco. Things
are definitely changing with members employed or so to be employed in different places. Building
a stronger community remains our key task. We wish we knew how.
