Dear Wiki user,

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

The "December2012" page has been changed by MichaelMacFadden:

- Incubating since: Dec-2010
+ Wave is rich, web-based, distributed, collaboration platform that allows
+ users to interact in near real time.  The wave platform includes a
+ web-based user interface containing an rich-text.  The system is
+ extendable though widgets, robots, and editor doodads.  The Wave In a Box
+ implementation is developed in java using a variety of web technologies
+ such as Web Sockets, Java Script, GWT, and supported by an operational
+ transform based conflict resolution algorithm.  Wave has been incubating
+ since December of 2010.
- Description: Wave is a real-time communication and collaboration tool.
- Wave in a Box (WIAB) is a server that hosts and federates waves, supports
- extensive APIs, and provides a rich web client. This project also includes
- an implementation of the Wave Federation protocol, to enable federated
- collaboration systems (such as multiple interoperable Wave In a Box instances).
- Most important issues are:
+ * Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation.
+ 1. Performing an initial release (currently in progress).
+ We have started the release process, but it has stalled.  we were first dealing
+ with the large amount of files with incorrect copyright headers.  That has been
+ largely overcome.  However we are still struggling with the possible need to
+ obfuscate third party jars with less than compatible licenses.  The technical
+ and legal implications of this still need to be addressed.
- Community:
+ 2. Updating the web site and online documentation.
+ The web site does not have very much useful information on it.  Most
+ Information is scattered on the old google-code and
+ sites.  Prospective users and developers are constantly asking for
+ Where the documentation is.
+ 3. Increasing developer / community contributions.
+ While we are making progress in this area, we need more contributors.
+ We believe that taking care of #1 and #2 will help with this.  Building
+ an active community is difficult, but very important.
+ * Issues for the PMC / ASF Board
+ None at this time.
+ * How has the community developed since the last report
+ The community as added two new committers in that last several months (Ali
+ Lown and Vicente J. Ruiz Jurado).  Additionally, we have seen an increase
+ in the number of code reviews and mailing list traffic.
+ * How has the project developed since the last report.
+ Several Jira issues have been resolved and a few enhancements have been made.
+ We are making progress towards an initial release.
