Dear Wiki user,

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

The "April2014" page has been changed by KasperSorensen:

Added MetaModel section

  Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
-   1. 
-   2. 
-   3. 
+   1. Finalize 4.1 release to demonstrate new functionality and evolution within Apache
+   2. More contributors to increase diversity of the community
+   3. Determine approach to technical documentation across different software versions
  Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
  aware of?
+   None
- How has the community developed since the last report?
- How has the project developed since the last report?
+ How has the community developed since the last report?
+   We finished our first release and are seeing some initial interest from users. Mostly
+   there are interactions to add new features or connectivity to new types of datastores.
+   For instance, it has been proposed to look into building connectivity to semantic web
+   technologies, iRods, Apache Phoenix - and within the contributors group there has been
+   some focus on adding HBase and Cassandra support.
+   Discussions about community by-laws are not very active at this point. It
+   does not seem to be top-of-mind for most community members, and also
+   shepherd/mentor notes from January 2014 indicate that this is not
+   important right now.
+   We're improving on the point of registering JIRA issues and running patches through
+   the review board. By now this is the approach taken every time, unless a commit is
+   found to be very trivial.
+   Still the core group of developers seems a bit small, but by focusing on broader
+   connectivity and keeping the releases coming, we think we can attract a larger
+   community to the project.
+ How has the project developed since the last report?
+   Apache MetaModel 4.0.0-incubating was released on Jan 21.
+   We are working on new features for a 4.1 version. The 4.1 version will represent
+   the point in time where Apache MetaModel starts to show significant new functionality
+   when compared to the old MetaModel project.
+   A new module for providing easy Spring framework integration has been implemented.
+   Finishing touches are being made to a new module for connecting to Apache HBase.
+   Various API changes are being planned and discussed.
+   Many bugfixes and performance improvements has been implemented.
