Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "ClimateProposal" by ChrisMattmann
Date Sat, 26 Jan 2013 18:22:09 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

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

The "ClimateProposal" page has been changed by ChrisMattmann:

  RCMED is a Big Data project that combines several underlying Apache software -- OODT, Tika,
Hadoop, HIVE, and Sqoop -- and other related data management software. Its primary language
is Java; RCMET, on the other hand, is a Python API, associated set of classes (framework),
set of Python Bottle Web services, and a PHP "Wizard"-based User Interface that leverages
Apache OODT Balance.
  === Background ===
- Ever since the initial ARRA grant, and the work coinciding with bringing OODT to Apache,

+ Bringing RCMES to Apache was the brain-child of Chris Mattmann, based on his solid experience
with Apache OODT and bringing it to the ASF. Chris worked for a year to get the support of
the JPL community including approvals from the Software Release authority at JPL to release
the software. 
+ The initial code drop will include the RCMES SVN repository from JPL including prior revisions.
We anticipate also including a smaller package, CDX, which contains some useful facilities
for regridding, and command line tools for manipulating large datasets, and working with OPeNDAP,
+ After the code drop, we will work with our developers, users, documentors, and other members
of the team to teach those unfamiliar with the Apache way how it works around here at Apache.
30% of the community from RCMES includes those intimately familiar with Apache including 5
ASF members -- the other 70% include a range of scientific code developers, climate scientists
that use RCMES, program officers that will help make documentation and slides for the code,
and advocate for it in the community. Their experience with Apache ranges from using various
ASF products, to contributing patches to them, to not using any ASF software at all.
+ With this diversity, we anticipate that while everything may not just work turnkey out of
the box, this represents a unique opportunity to demonstrate Apache to the international community
and to show the benefits of its community and social models. That said, we also have a lot
of ASF experience to make sure everyone learns the Apache way.
  === Rationale ===
  Why bring JPL RCMES and CDX?
