+ 2012-October Tashi Incubator Status Report
+ Tashi has been incubating since September 2008.
+ The Tashi project aims to build a software infrastructure for cloud 
+ computing on massive internet-scale datasets (what we call Big Data). 
+ The idea is to build a cluster management system that enables the Big 
+ Data that are stored in a cluster/data center to be accessed, shared, 
+ manipulated, and computed on by remote users in a convenient, efficient, 
+ and safe manner.
+ Tashi originally encompassed just the tools to manage virtual machines 
+ using Xen and QEMU, but has been merged with Zoni, which manages the 
+ physical aspects of a cluster like power control, network settings and 
+ handing out physical machines.
+ Activities July-October:
+ In the period from July to October, the project did not ask to make 
+ another incubating release, but is ready to start the process for a new 
+ release incorporating the development efforts of the last 6 months.
+ Development efforts this period have included providing a separate 
+ administration client, allowing addition of users and networks, and host 
+ reservations and availability for scheduling.
+ The project has received code contributions from one non-committer in 
+ this period. Diogo Gomes provided support for deriving the IP addresses 
+ of guests automatically, without having to scan the subnet. Thanks Diogo!
+ Additional stability and user experience improvements were also 
+ committed.
+ Upcoming software goals are to investigate what is needed to support 
+ IPv6, replace RPyC, and to provide the ability to hand out server slices 
+ (operating system level virtualization). Besides CPU and memory, disk 
+ storage should also be a schedulable resource.
+ The project has a user community, but it is small. Growth mostly has 
+ happened by word of mouth. To show potential users at large the utility 
+ of this project, the author of this report is creating web pages to 
+ demonstrate how to accomplish distributed computing tasks. Base images 
+ of (free) OS installs will be provided to allow new users to get started 
+ quickly. Hopefully this will increase visibility of the project.
+ Items to be resolved before graduation:
+         * Generate more publicity for the project.
+         * Develop members of the user community to submit feature
+           extensions.
