Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "December2011" by KarlWright

Dear Wiki user,

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

The "December2011" page has been changed by KarlWright:

- (project add text here)
+ --Description--
+ ManifoldCF is an incremental crawler framework and set of connectors
+ designed to pull documents from various kinds of repositories into
+ search engine indexes or other targets. The current bevy of repository
+ connectors includes Documentum (EMC), FileNet (IBM), LiveLink
+ (OpenText), Meridio (Autonomy), SharePoint (Microsoft), JDBC, CIFS
+ file systems, CMIS repositories, RSS feeds, and web content. Output
+ support includes Solr, MetaCarta GTS, and OpenSearchServer.
+ ManifoldCF also provides components for individual document security
+ within a target search engine, so that repository security access
+ conventions can be enforced in the search results.
+ ManifoldCF has been in incubation since January, 2010. It was
+ originally a planned subproject of Lucene but is now a likely
+ top-level project.
+ --A list of the three most important issues to address in the move
+ towards graduation--
+ 1. We need at least one additional active committer, as well as
+ additional users and repeat contributors
+ 2. We need the current committer base to each broaden their commits
+ to new areas of the project
+ 3. We'd like to see long-term contributions for project testing,
+ especially infrastructure access
+ --Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to
+ be aware of?--
+ All issues have been addressed to our satisfaction at this time.
+ --How has the community developed since the last report?--
+ Talks on ManifoldCF were given both at Apache Eurocon 2011 in
+ Barcelona and at ApacheCon NA in Vancouver.  Both were well-received.
+ We have not signed up any new committers, however, this quarter,
+ although we've received interest from people towards contributing
+ especially in Vancouver.
+ Based on the feelings of our mentors, we have postponed further talk
+ of graduation, due to the still-not-well-distributed number of commits
+ among our committer base.  This is viewed as a blocker by one mentor
+ but not the other.
+ --How has the project developed since the last report?--
+ An 0.1 release was made on January 31, 2011, and a 0.2 release
+ occurred on May 17, 2011.  Another release occurred on September
+ 20, 2011.  A fourth release is planned for December 15, 2011, and will contain
+ significant new features, including full support for HSQLDB and a new
+ Alfresco connector.
