+ 2011-January Tashi Incubator Status Report
- (project add text here)
+ Tashi has been incubating since September 2008.
+ The Tashi project aims to build a software infrastructure for cloud computing 
+ on massive internet-scale datasets (what we call Big Data). The idea is to 
+ build a cluster management system that enables the Big Data that are stored in 
+ a cluster/data center to be accessed, shared, manipulated, and computed on by 
+ remote users in a convenient, efficient, and safe manner.
+ Tashi has previously encompassed just the tools to manage virtual
+ machines using Xen and KVM, but is gaining the facility to hand out
+ physical machines as well.
+ Development activities have included:-
+         * fix for xen root declaration (necessary if using external kernel)
+         * parameterize xen root disk declaration
+         * implement Miha Stopar's fix to improve handoff during migration
+         * implement Miha Stopar and Andrew Edmond's patch to register and
+           unregister hosts, and improve locking of resources
+         * allow use of virtio disks under qemu
+ Richard Gass has created a branch to work on the physical machine reservation
+ component (zoni-dev):-
+         * allow physical machine registration
+         * add integration with Apache web server for control
+         * add facilities for DNS/DHCP registration of physical resources
+         * make changes to Zoni DB layout (convert some tables to InnoDB)
+         * add initial infrastructure hardware (switch and PDU)
+         * demonstrate initial VM usage reports (shame-tashi)
+         * add logging to infrastructure hardware controllers
+         * add abstraction layer for hardware controllers
+         * add debug console to zoni
+         * add DNS/DHCP key creation functions
+         * add physical to virtual cluster manager service
+         * add primitive agent to keep minimal amount of machines powered
+           on and scale up from there
+         * allow zoni-cli to talk to hardware directly
+ The project is still working toward building a larger user and development 
+ community. User groups have been identified in Ireland, Slovenia and Korea,
+ as well as at Georgia Tech. Several suggestions provided by users at those
+ sites have been implemented in the head.
+ Items to be resolved before graduation:
+         * Prepare and review a release candidate
+         * Develop community diversity (currently Intel and CMU committers)
