Dear Wiki user,

The "August2012" page has been changed by SureshMarru:

- (project add text here)
+ Airavata is a software toolkit which provides features to compose, manage,
+ execute, and monitor large scale applications and workflows on computational
+ resources ranging from local clusters to national grids and computing clouds.
+ Airavata is incubating since May 2011.
+ A list of the three most important issues to address in the move towards
+ graduation
+   1. The documentation is improving but still not par to ease barrier of entry.
+      The code, documentation and JIRA issues have to be efficiently
+      organized and managed to appeal to wider developer community.
+   2. Develop a strong community with organizational diversity and well
+      aligned with existing ASF projects as outlined here:
+   3. Create a regular and predictable release process and schedule
+ Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be aware of?
+   The community is very active averaging 150 dev list emails and 75 commits
+   per month. Airavata community encourages cross pollination with other
+   Apache projects and also reuses significant number of license compatible
+   open source libraries. This has helped keep the focus, but delayed the
+   releases with impasse on legal requirements. The delay in making a release
+   had lost some developer momentum.
+   The community is not yet significantly diverse but lately the interest is
+   growing. The project is committed and very supportive to external users and
+   is putting the effort on increasing diversity. The PMC has discussed few
+   potential outreach venues and have proposed and engaged with 8 GSoC student
+   proposals.
+ How has the community developed since the last report?
+   No new committers or PPMC members elected in the last quarter. Three new
+   users from the community are very active in the mailing list. Some have
+   started to send patches and have potential interest.
+   4 GSoC projects proposed on Airavata have been accepted. The students for
+   these projects are Hasitha Aravinda, Yaroslav Porshnev, Milinda Pathirage,
+   and Bhathiya Jayasekara.
+ How has the project developed since the last report?
+   0.2-incubating release candidate (skipped 0.1-incubating numbering) was
+   significantly improved in regards to license and notice complains. The
+   Community Vote was successful with 5 PPMC and 2 mentor votes. The Vote
+   in IPMC general list is ongoing.
+   With the delay in release, the community has branched a 0.2 release and
+   has made significant progress on the trunk. Many features have been added
+   and ready for successive couple more releases.
+   The community has actively responded to GSoC proposals and student
+   questions resulting in few quality proposals.
+   Community is voting for a wiki to increase focus on documentation and
+   tutorial.
