Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "JSpiritProposal" by GregoireRolland
Date Fri, 16 Jul 2010 14:39:07 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

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

The "JSpiritProposal" page has been changed by GregoireRolland.


  We think apache foundation is a good match for jSpirit. jSpirit is targeted tu use Tomcat
and Geronimo in the future. jSpirit uses already a lot of Apache projects and we think we
need collaboration with this project to produce the best platform we can. This project are
ActiveMQ, Abdera, CXF, Velocity, Maven, Commons, Geronimo, JackRabbit, Lucene, FOP, ...And
there are other project we will need to work with (Cassandra, OpenEJB, OpenJPA).  We think
there could be good interaction between projects and jSpirit could fit in the ecosystem. 
  =  Known Risks =
+ == Orphaned products ==
+ There is a risk the product became orphaned due to the small numbers of commiters, that's
why wee need to build a community. Grégoire Rolland wants to build his carrer aroud this
project and Frank Hervy is very interrested. The company wich already use jSpirit could diminish
the risk of orphaned product.
+ == Inexperience with Open Source ==
+ The initial committers have low experience with open source projects. All have been involved
with source code that has been released under an open source license, but there is no experience
developing code with an open source development process. But we are very motivated to execute
our developpement under the meritocraty rules. As said above we are really open to this new
experience, that's why we propose this project for incubation.
+ == Homogenous Developers ==
+ All developpers works in different company, we are in France, sure, the geographical region
is limited. But we already have join proposition from other countries. We think this project
could interrest a large panel of developper and we want encourage this.
+ == Reliance on Salaried Developers ==
+ Franck Hervy is vonluteer for developping jSpirit. Grégoire Rolland is currently unemployed
but want to make is business around this project and support this in a long term. The project
will continue without salaried developper.
+ == Relationships with Other Apache Products ==
+ Reltionship with other Apache Products exists today as dependent library as said above,
and we want encourage these and work together to improve the quality of each. Dependencies
include ActiveMQ, Abdera, CXF, Velocity, Maven, Commons, Geronimo, JackRabbit, Lucene, FOP.
We want develop the relationships with Cassandra, OpenEJB, OpenJPA and Geronimo, to build
a high quality platform for developping enterprises applications.
+ == A Excessive Fascination with the Apache Brand ==
+ We hope the Apache Brand will attract users and contributors around this project. We know
ASF since 10 years and we are used products daily. We think the products are all quality and
open-source respective. We recognize the effort of the ASF in the open-source ecosystem and
we want to add our sweat to this effort. However we can continue this adventure alone but
this will be harder and less motivating than belong to a large and recognized community.
+ = Documentation =
+ There is not much documentation now (it's the second initial goals), but you can found some
material here (sorry it's in french) :
+ = Initial Source =
+ jSpirit is in developpement since September 2008 by Grégoire Rolland. The developpement
started in a french company (Husson Ingenierie, Périgueux, when the
developpers needs a platform for building multi-tenant application. The source was liberated
in Arpil 2010.
+ = External Dependencies =
+ The dependencies all have Apache compatible licenses. These include LGPL, BSD, CDDL, CPL,
MPL and MIT licensed dependencies. 
+ = Cryptography =
+ jSpirit could depend now or in the future from cryptographic code.
+ = Required Resources = 
+ == Mailing lists ==
+  * jspirit-private (with moderated subscriptions)
+  * jspirit-dev
+  * jspirit-commits
+  * jspirit-user
+ == Subversion Directory ==
+ == Issue Tracking ==
+ JIRA jSpirit (JSPIRIT) 
+ == Initial Committers ==
+ Grégoire Rolland (grolland dot jspirit at gmail dot com)
+ Franck Hervy (hervy dot franck at free dot fr)
+ == Interrested developpers == 
+ Here a list of the interrested developper :
+ = Sponsors =
+ == Champion ==
+ We are actually looking for a Champion.
+ == Nominated Mentors ==
+ We also need Mentors.
+ == Sponsoring Entity == 
+ We gracefully ask the Incubator to be our sponsor.
