Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "ClimateModelDiagnosticAnalyzerProposal" by LeiPan
Date Thu, 05 Mar 2015 12:32:03 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

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

The "ClimateModelDiagnosticAnalyzerProposal" page has been changed by LeiPan:

  === Orphaned products ===
- Given the current level of intellectual investment in AsterixDB, the risk of the project
being abandoned is very small. The UCI/UCR faculty team leads are highly incentivized to continue
development since the database groups at UC Irvine and UC Riverside are both reliant on AsterixDB
as a platform for long-term graduate research projects. UC San Diego is also beginning to
contribute to the code base, and a collaboration involving public health applications is forming
with UCLA. The work on AsterixDB is managed via a mix of mailing list discussions supplemented
by weekly project status meetings which are summarized on the mailing list. Typical (local
plus Skype-in) attendance to the weekly status meetings runs at about 20 active contributors.
+ Given the current level of intellectual investment in ClimateModelDiagnosticAnalyzer, the
risk of the project being abandoned is very small. The Carnegie Mellon University and JPL
are collaborating (2014-2015) to build a service for climate analytics workflow recommendation
using fund from NASA. A two-year NASA AIST project (2015-2016) will soon start to add diagnostic
analysis methodologies such as conditional sampling method, conditional probability density
function, data co-location, and random forest. We will also infuse the provenance technology
into CMDA so that the history of the data products and workflows will be automatically collected
and saved. This information will also be indexed so that the products and workflows can be
searchable by the community of climate scientists and students.
  === Inexperience with Open Source ===
+ The current developers of ClimateModelDiagnosticAnalyzer are inexperienced with Open Source.
However, our Champion Chris Mattmann is experienced (Apache Climate Benchmark and AsterixDB)
and will be working closely with us, also as the of the JPL section.
- AsterixDB and Hyracks were completely developed in Open Source under the ALv2. The source
code repositories, issue tracker, and mailing lists are available on Google Code and discussions
and decisions happen on the mailing lists (which is necessary due to the geographic distribution
of the current developers).
- Also a few of the initial committers have contributed to Apache projects. Vinayak Borkar
is a committer on the Apache Helix and Apache VXQuery projects. Till Westmann is the VP VXQuery
at the ASF and an IPMC member. Preston Carman and Steven Jacobs are committers on the Apache
VXQuery project.
  === Relationships with Other Apache Products ===
