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

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 AlexHarui:

- Reminded the PPMC to report via their dev list on Sept.1st and again on Sept.7th, no reaction
so far.
+ Apache Flex is an application framework for easily building Flash-based
+ applications for mobile devices, the browser and desktop.
- Signed-off-by:
+ Summary: A large community is waiting to see if committer activity will increase.
+ Date of entry to the Incubator:  December 31, 2011
+ Top three items to resolve before graduation:
+   - Get better at resolving issues the Apache Way
+   - Get more initial committers to commit something
+   - Make another release with more non-Adobe involvement
+ Is there anything that the Incubator PMC or ASF Board specifically needs
+ to address?
+   There was discussion about letting Flex graduate with the requirement that
+   one or two mentors remain on the PMC.
+ Are there any legal, infrastructure, cross-project or personal issues that
+ need to be addressed? (Are there any stumbling blocks that impede the podling?)
+   The issue regarding the import of attachments for existing
+   JIRA bugs remains open (INFRA-4380).  It is not critical, but it would be
+   nice to get this resolved soon.
+   The PPMC has voted to move from SVN to Git.  Having Apache approve read/write
+   Git repositories would be helpful.
+ Check that the project's Incubation Status file up to date.
+ What has been done (releases, milestones, etc.) since the last report?
+   - We released Apache Flex 4.8.0 (incubating).
+   - Erik De Bruin was added as a committer and PPMC member due to his 
+     work on the installer.  Peter Ent and Gordon Smith from Adobe were
+     also added as committers as they are shepherding large donations
+     from Adobe.
+   - Adobe donated the Text Layout Framework.
+   - OmPrakash Muppirala has been leading the development of a tool that
+     allows IDEs like Adobe Flash Builder to work better with Apache Flex
+     releases.  Justin McLean, Stephen Downs, Roland Zwaga, Tomasz Maciag,
+     and Erik De Bruin have also contributed to the tool.
+   - We have accepted several patches from the community to address issues
+     with our test suite.
+   - After much discussion, we voted to move from SVN to Git and employ
+     something known as the Git Branching Model.
+ What are the plans and expectations for the next period?
+   - We hope to finalize the release of the installer.
+   - Adobe will submit the Falcon compiler source
+   - We will get the test suite stable on Mac desktops and then on Windows
+     and mobile configurations.  This should remove the last excuse for
+     committers who are afraid to make changes without a validation suite
+   - We hope to complete the transition from SVN to Git.
+ Are there any recommendations for how incubation could run more smoothly
+ for you?
+   Our mentors continue to be very helpful.
