+ 2012-January Tashi Incubator Status Report
+ 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 originally encompassed just the tools to manage virtual machines 
+ using Xen and QEMU, but has been merged with Zoni, which manages the 
+ physical aspects of a cluster like power control, network settings and 
+ handing out physical machines.
+ Development activities have included:-
+         * Accounting server has been added to the codebase
+         * Primitive scheduler changes
+                 * bug fixes
+                 * Add support for user choice of dense packing or not
+                 * Guard against starting more than one VM with
+                   persistent disk
+         * Client changes
+                 * Check syntax of user commands
+                 * Add support for querying available images
+                 * Add support for querying image size
+                 * Add support for copying of images
+         * QEMU VMM changes
+                 * bug fixes
+                 * Reserve some memory for the host itself
+                 * Make scratch location configurable
+                 * Live migrations take a long time, eliminate
+                   some timeout values
+         * Cluster manager changes
+                 * bug fixes
+                 * Reduce network traffic
+                 * Move accounting functions to new accounting server
+         * Branched off new stable version and release candidate
+         * Audit compliance with Incubator policies
+ The project is still working toward building a larger user and development 
+ community. User groups have been identified in Ireland, Slovenia and Korea,
+ Malaysia, as well as the United States.
+ Items to be resolved before graduation:
+         * A stable branch exists which could be a release candidate, but
+           the codebase is large and test hardware is currently in
+           short supply. We are confident that the code in the stablefix
+           branch will work if running QEMU emulation, Pickle or sqlite
+           data storage, primitive scheduler. Xen, other data stores and
+           schedulers have not been tested recently.
+         * Develop community diversity (Committers currently at Telefonica,
+           Google and CMU)
