Add Slider report

  
  Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
  
-   1.
-   2.
-   3.
+   1. Getting more external users
+   2. Getting more diverse set of developers
+   3. Getting more diverse set of committers/PMC
  
  Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
  aware of?
  
+   No.

+ How has the community developed since the last report?
  
  
+   We continue to see regular interaction with users who are trying out
+   Apache Slider (incubating). Questions range from introductory "I'm
+   trying to do $x" to bug reports "I did $a and encountered an issue $b".
+   The committers try their best to keep people involved and steer them
+   toward contributions. The strong majority of contributions continue to
+   come from existing podling members.
  
- Date of last release:
  
-   XXXX-XX-XX
+ How has the project developed since the last report?
  
- When were the last committers or PMC members elected?
+   The IP clearance for the Apache Kafka Slider "app-package" process
+   was addressed (after discussion on general@i.a.o) and this codebase was
+   merged in. This was a great contribution by a few external developers
+   and very much appreciated.
  
+   Work continues on "phase 2" of some long-term work to include support
+   for running Docker containers in Slider. The intent behind this work is
+   that we will make it easier for (prospective) users to build
+   applications that can run on Slider. There is a tentative patch on
+   SLIDER-906 and some related documentation updates.
  
+   We have agreed upon a next release (0.91) happening in May, but have
+   not made any significant progress towards that release yet.
+ 
+   We had a discussion put forth about the future of Slider by a podling
+   member. At the inception of Slider, Apache Hadoop's YARN was not ready
+   to support long-lived services "natively". While Slider has been in
+   incubation, YARN has continued to grow towards treating these services
+   natively, partly as a result of requirements necessary of Slider to
+   work. As such, we discussed whether it would make sense to ask the YARN
+   project if they would be interesting in combining efforts, moving the
+   core of Slider into YARN itself. The Slider community reacted
+   positively, noting that YARN is likely a better long-term home for the
+   core of Slider; however, there were a few points raised that would need
+   to be addressed before any action was actually taken. The mail discussion
+   can be found at https://s.apache.org/3ywX

+ Date of last release:

+   2016-01-09 slider-0.90.2-incubating
+ 
+ When were the last committers or PMC members elected?
