Date Mon, 06 Apr 2015 21:25:18 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

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

The "MysosProposal" page has been changed by ChrisAniszczyk:

Initial proposal

New page:
= Mysos Proposal =

== Abstract ==
Mysos is a Mesos framework for running MySQL.

== Proposal ==


== Background ==


== Rationale ==


== Initial Goals ==

 * Move the existing codebase to Apache
 * Integrate with the Apache development process
 * Ensure all dependencies are compliant with Apache License version 2.0
 * Incremental development and releases per Apache guidelines

== Current Status ==


=== Meritocracy ===

We plan to invest in supporting a meritocracy. We will discuss the requirements in an open
forum. Several companies have already expressed interest in this project, and we intend to
invite additional developers to participate. We will encourage and monitor community participation
so that privileges can be extended to those that contribute.

=== Community ===


By bringing Mysos into Apache, we believe that the community will grow even bigger.

=== Core Developers ===

Mysos was initially developed as a collaboration between Twitter, Mesosphere and Percona.


=== Alignment ===

We believe that having Mysos at Apache will help further the growth of the big-data community,
as it will encourage cooperation within the greater ecosystem of projects spawned by Apache

== Known Risks ==

=== Orphaned Products ===


=== Inexperience with Open Source ===


=== Homogenous Developers ===

The initial committers come from a number of companies. TODO

=== Reliance on Salaried Developers ===

It is expected that Mysos development will occur on both salaried time and on volunteer time,
after hours. The majority of initial committers are paid by their employers to contribute
to this project. However, they are all passionate about the project, and we are confident
that the project will continue even if no salaried developers contribute to the project. We
are committed to recruiting additional committers including non-salaried developers. 

=== Relationships with Other Apache Products ===

TODO Mesos

=== An Excessive Fascination with the Apache Brand ===

Mysos is a new open source project and the primary benefits to joining Apache are those outlined
in the Rationale section.

== Documentation ==

Documentation is currently located as README markdown files:


== Source and Intellectual Property Submission Plan ==

The Mysos codebase is currently hosted on Github: 

These are the codebases that we would migrate to the Apache foundation.

== External Dependencies ==

 * Apache Maven: ALv2

== Cryptography ==

We do not expect Mysos to be a controlled export item due to the use of encryption.

== Required Resources ==

=== Mailing lists ===


== Subversion Directory ==

Git is the preferred source control system: 

 * git://

== Issue Tracking ==

We'd like to keep using the Git review and issue tracking tools. Controlling Pull requests
closing through git commit messages in

== Initial Committers ==
