Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "October2012" by JoelKoshy
Date Wed, 03 Oct 2012 18:36:53 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

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

The "October2012" page has been changed by JoelKoshy:

+ (introduced to Apache incubator on Jul 4, 2011)
- (project add text here)
+ Kafka provides an extremely high throughput distributed publish/subscribe messaging system.
Additionally, it supports relatively long term persistence of messages to support a wide variety
of consumers, partitioning of the message stream across servers and consumers, and functionality
for loading data into Apache Hadoop for offline, batch processing.
+ * A list of the three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation.
+ None. We started a graduation discussion on our mailing list. This was slightly delayed
due to focus on the development of the intra-cluster replication feature.
+ * Any issues that the Incubator PMC or ASF Board might wish/need to be aware of
+ None.
+ * How has the community developed since the last report
+ - The mailing list continues been very active with bug reports, patch submissions, feature
requests and use case discussions. [(Jul,Aug,Sep): kafka-users (155, 164, 126); kafka-dev
(445, 532, 589)].
+ - Received and reviewed several major patches especially in the 0.8 branch.
+ * How has the project developed since the last report.
+ - Intra-cluster replication (KAFKA-50)
+   - Development has been very steady on this feature. (Hence the double volume of emails
on kafka-dev since the last report.) We set up a development dashboard at
that gives an overview of the remaining work for that release.
+ - The vote for Kafka 0.7.3 is currently underway. This will be the third Kafka release after
its introduction to Apache incubator.
