Date Fri, 27 Jul 2012 03:33:23 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

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

The "August2012" page has been changed by SureshMarru:

  A list of the three most important issues to address in the move towards
+   1. The wiki has jump started the release process and other documentation.
-   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
+   3. Create a clear and concise roadmap.
  Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be aware of?
+   The community was very active this summer with large number of dev list 
+   and code commit email traffic (May:Dev-220,Commit-169;June:Dev-371,Commit-366;July:Dev-271,Commit-226).
-   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 has started to get diverse. The project continues to be committed and very
supportive to external users and
-   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
+   is putting the effort on increasing diversity. 
-   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.
+   Yes. Shahani Weerawarana from University of Moratuwa, Srilanka
+   was voted in as a commiter and PPMC members based on her contributions.
+   A good number of community members are actively filing JIRA's and some have 
+   started to contribute patches. Some of them are potentially commiters. 
-   4 GSoC projects proposed on Airavata have been accepted. The students for
-   these projects are Hasitha Aravinda, Yaroslav Porshnev, Milinda Pathirage,
-   and Bhathiya Jayasekara.
+   Of the 4 GSoC projects proposed on Airavata 3 students are actively developing 
+   and interacting with community. These students also are reviewing testing and
+   voting on releases.
  How has the project developed since the last report?
+   0.3-incubating has been released. 0.4-incubating release candidate vote is 
+   on-going on PPMC dev mailing list. .
-   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.
