Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "May2012" by ChrisMattmann
Date Sun, 22 Apr 2012 22:54:57 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

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

The "May2012" page has been changed by ChrisMattmann:

- fix duplication for SIS.

    Chris Mattmann in USC's CSCI 572: Search Engines and Information Retrieval 
- Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be aware of?
-   The plan proposed here: seems to be going 
-   well and we are happy with the direction the project is headed.
- Community progress since the last report
-   No new PPMC members and committers added this quarter.
- Project progress since last report
-   Looking at just mailing list activity:
-   sis-dev:
-     went from 9 email messages in January 2012 to 32, 74 and 39 in Feb-April 2012
-   We are participating pretty actively in GSoC and hoping to get 1 or 2
-   students who are collaborating with the Apache OODT project as well
-   for a joint effort.
-   In addition, we've seen some good cross pollination between other (at the time)
-   incubating projects like Jena and Any23, and TLPs like OODT. In Jena and Any23's
-   case, there are active discussions and work going on to implement the W3C GeoSPARQL
-   system using Apache SIS. After Andy Seaborne poked around on the mailing list, Chris
-   Mattmann volunteered to implement it, and a subsequent thread has ensued.
-   Chris started rolling an RC for Apache SIS 0.2-incubating, but got blocked
-   on some packaging issues that Kevan Miller identified that needs to be fixed. 
-   Shouldn't be too difficult and we hope to have an IPMC VOTE on it within the next
-   week or so.
-   We have also started to regularly use the project wiki. You can find it here:
- Included on the wiki are
-   links to all of our Incubator reports, along with 2 tutorials. The first one is
-   a quick start guide that Ross Laidlaw improved and copied from the SIS README.txt
-   file. The second demonstrates how to get Apache OODT and SIS connected to dump
-   spatial information out of geolocated files in Apache OODT and to search them
-   in SIS. 
-   SIS is actively being used and piloted by students of Dr. Ellis Horowitz and
-   Chris Mattmann in USC's CSCI 572: Search Engines and Information Retrieval 
-   class:
    If we can add some new committers soon (which we expect), roll 0.2-incubating, 
    and then potentially get an 0.3 shortly thereafter, we think SIS will be well 
    on its way to graduating and its own project.
