Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "November2012" by TedDunning
Date Sun, 04 Nov 2012 23:03:50 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

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

The "November2012" page has been changed by TedDunning:

- (project add text here)
+ * Your project name
+  * A brief description of your project, which assumes no knowledge of the project
+    or necessarily of its field
+  * A list of the three most important issues to address in the move towards
+    graduation.
+  * Any issues that the Incubator PMC or ASF Board might wish/need to be aware of
+  * How has the community developed since the last report
+  * How has the project developed since the last report.
+ Drill's goal is to build an open source clone of Dremel with appropriate
+ extensions to foster greater flexibility.
+ Drill has been incubating since September of 2012.
+ Since last month, we have been working on bringing in existing code assets.  We now have
the following items in our source repository:
+     A web-based GUI front-end for DRILL
+     A query parser for a Dremel equivalent language
+     An early prototype of a physical plan interpreter
+ The web front-end and query parser still need formalized IP clearance including ICLA's or
CCLA's as appropriate.  Informal clearances have been granted on all components.
+ In terms of infrastructure, the project web site has been incorporated into CMS.
+ Graduation is still very far away, but the community activity has been high
+ and the mailing list has been active with over 200 postings in October.  
+ Numerous public presentations have been made since the last report.
+ Most important issues to address before we can graduate: 
+   Get the basics in place, build up a working code base, make releases
+   (that is, everything) 
+ Any issues the Incubator PMC or ASF board need to be aware of: 
+   None at this time 
+ How has the community developed since the last report: 
+   The active contributors mentioned in the previous report continue to
+   be active and additional contributors have been identified.  At least
+   one corporate supporter of the project has hired a full-time engineer
+   to focus on Drill. We are working to bind these new contributors into the
+   community and several appear likely to become committers over time.
+ How has the project developed since the last report: 
+   The community has continued to make progress and substantial code assets
+   are in the process of being contributed.
