Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "February2015" by AlanWilliams
Date Thu, 29 Jan 2015 13:28:27 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

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

The "February2015" page has been changed by AlanWilliams:

  Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
  aware of?
+   IP clearance from University of Manchester is scheduled to be signed 2015-01-30
-   IP clearance from University of Manchester is taking longer
-   due to their lawyers needing to check historical contractual agreements
-   (yes, even though we already have CLAs from third-parties)
-   The IP Clearance is scheduled to be signed 2015-01-30
-   after which we can finally transition git, Jira and wiki
-   to * and start preparing the release.
  How has the community developed since the last report?
-   Committers seem to get a hang on Apache IP/licensing
-   issues, which is the main focus right now. 
-   Committers are getting comfortable with 
-   editing and expanding the project website.
    One new (potential) contributor
-   ..he seems unfortunate in that the code he wanted to work on was
-   realised to be historical with a more dubious IP history, 
-   and thus can't be part of Apache Taverna. 
-   We worked around it by recreating the relevant XML schema:
-   One former plugin developer showing interest in getting
+   One former plugin developer showing renewed interest
-   "back on track":
  How has the project developed since the last report?
-   Preparing for the first release of the module
+   Preparing for the first release of the module incubator-taverna-language.
+   Prepared its license headers and changed package names. Checking licenses of non-Java
files (schemas and examples)
-   incubator-taverna-language.
+   Helped release Apache extras Beanshell 2.0b5 to allow its use in Taverna
-   Obviously before we
-   have IP clearance and moved to * we can only
-   do so much, but we have already prepared Apache licensing headers
-   and changed to org.apache.taverna groupIds/package names
-   (which means we have to be careful about where we put any
-   test-builds)
+   Apache Taverna website content is being transitioned to
. Will reference non-Apache Taverna data that will be left in
-   Some IP-dubious files have been dealt with (XML schemas, 
-   test workflows with no declared license).
-   A potential show-stopper for backwards compatibility was
-   solved, as Taverna depends heavily on Beanshell, which
-   last official release is LGPL. 
-   We joined forces with an earlier Apache Extras effort of
-   Beanshell
-   (this has already been granted IP to Apache)
-   and helped push the release Beanshell 2.0b5 to Maven Central.
-   Namespaces at
-   now redirect to infrastructure
-   (yay .htaccess).
-   We have been discussing how to transition our extensive 
-   website content from 
- to 
-   - we'll leave most of the old stuff behind and at some
-   point call it
-   and redirect www to Apache.
-   Remaining infrastructure move includes - after IP clearance:
-   * Github ->
-   * Jira -> Jira (still discussing if this should be in bulk or manual)
-   * Confluence -> Confluence
-   * Web content (ongoing)
  Date of last release:
