Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "September2012" by AlanGates

Dear Wiki user,

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

The "September2012" page has been changed by AlanGates:

- (project add text here)
+ HCatalog is a table and storage management service for data created using Apache Hadoop.
HCatalog entered Apache incubator in March 2011.
+ What has the project accomplished since the last report?
+ * Released version 0.4
+ * Voted in one new committer
+ * Received patches from 19 people
+ In March 2012, HCatalog was identified as having low diversity. With the addition of the
new committer there are now 9 committers from 3 organizations. Additionally, we have received
patches from 19 unique people (including committers) some of which are outside the committer
organizations. We believe the low diversity issue has either been addressed, or good progress
has been made towards addressing the issue.
+ What are the top 2-3 things to resolve before graduation?
+ * Grow the user community. There has been progress in this area with new users asking questions
on the mailing list, receiving patches from an increasing number of contributors, and work
towards publishing pre-built artifacts in the Apache repository. We need to continue in this
positive direction.
+ * Resolve a review process issue that affects our ability to develop new features. Time
between receiving patches and committing has increased to problematic levels, often causing
code rot and contributors extra work to rebase patches against trunk.
+ At this time we feel confident in our ability to make progress toward resolving these issues.
