  # Kafka

+ 
+ Kafka provides an extremely high throughput distributed publish/subscribe messaging system.
Additionally, it supports relatively long term persistence of messages to support a wide variety
of consumers, partitioning of the message stream across servers and consumers, and functionality
for loading data into Apache Hadoop for offline, batch processing.

+    2. Invite diverse new active committers
+ 
+ Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be aware of?
+ 
+ Not at this time.
+ 
+ How has the community developed since the last report?
+ 
+ We are getting very close to release the very first version of Kafka in Apache. A couple
of RCs have been proposed and we are still fixing various license header issues reported by
rat.
+ The proposed RC fixed more than 40 issues. The main feature added in the RC is end-to-end
compression support.

+ Activities in the mailing list remain high. Several patches from non-committers have been
