Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "NiFiProposal" by JosephWitt
Date Thu, 20 Nov 2014 12:35:41 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

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

The "NiFiProposal" page has been changed by JosephWitt:
https://wiki.apache.org/incubator/NiFiProposal?action=diff&rev1=16&rev2=17

  == Initial Goals ==
    * Ensure all dependencies are compliant with Apache License version 2.0 and all that all
code and documentation artifacts have the correct Apache licensing markings and notice.
    * Establish a formal release process and schedule, allowing for dependable release cycles
in a manner consistent with the Apache development process.
-   * Determine and establish a mechanism, possibly including a sub-project construct, that
allows for extensions to the core application to occur at a pace that differs from the core
application itself.
+   * Establish a process which allows different release cycles for the core framework and
extensions.
+   * Grow the community to establish diversity of background and expertise. 
  
  == Current Status ==
  === Meritocracy ===
  An integration platform is only as good as its ability to integrate systems in a reliable,
timely, and repeatable manner.  The same can be said of its ability to attract talent and
a variety of perspectives as integration systems by their nature are always evolving.  We
will actively seek help and encourage promotion of influence in the project through meritocracy.
  
  === Community ===
- Over the past several years, Ni``Fi has developed a strong community of both developers
and operators within the U.S. government.  We look forward to helping grow this to a broader
base of industries.

and operators within the U.S. government.  In open sourcing Ni``Fi we plan to grow the community
to a broader base of industries and will work to align the interaction of our existing community.
  
  === Core Developers ===
  The initial core developers are employed by the National Security Agency and defense contractors.
 We will work to grow the community among a more diverse set of developers and industries.

  == Known Risks ==
  === Orphaned Products ===
- Risk of orphaning is minimal.  The project user and developer base is substantial, growing,
and there is already extensive operational use of Ni``Fi.

  === Inexperience with Open Source ===
- The initial committers to Ni``Fi have limited experience with true open source software
development.  However, despite the project origins being from closed source development we
have modelled our behavior and community development on The Apache Way to the greatest extent
possible.  This environment includes widely accessible source code repositories, published
artifacts, ticket tracking, and extensive documentation. We also encourage contributions and
frequent debate and hold regular, collaborative discussions through e-mail, chat rooms, and
in-person meet-ups.  We are committed to the ideals of open source software and will eagerly
seek out mentors and sponsors who can help us quickly come up to speed.

  === Homogenous Developers ===
  The initial committers of Ni``Fi come from a limited set of entities though we are committed
to recruiting and developing additional committers from a broad spectrum of industries and
backgrounds.

  We respect the laudable Apache brand and that is certainly a factor in the decision to propose
Ni``Fi for the Apache Incubator.  We intend to provide a great deal of energy and capability
to the ASF through this project.  We will be sensitive to and respectful of any overuse of
the Apache brand and ensure our focus remains on how we benefit the Apache community.
  
  === Documentation ===
- At this time there is no Ni``Fi documentation on the web.  However, we have extensive documentation
included within the application that details usage of the many functions.  We will be rapidly
expanding the available documentation to cover things like installation, developer guide,
frequently asked questions, best practices, and more.  This documentation will be posted to
the Ni``Fi wiki at apache.org.

  == Initial Source ==
  Ni``Fi has been in active development since late 2006 with contributions from dozens of
developers and feedback from hundreds of users and developers.  The core codebase is written
in Java and includes detailed Javadocs and feature documentation.
