The "May2016" page has been changed by ToddLipcon:

Add kudu report

  Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
-   1.
-   2.
-   3.
+   1. Build a more diverse developer and user community
+   2. Migrate our web site under
+   3. Continue to make regular Apache releases
  Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
  aware of?
+ None.
- How has the community developed since the last report?
- How has the project developed since the last report?
+ How has the community developed since the last report?
+ - The PPMC invited Binglin Chang as a new committer and PPMC member. Binglin
+   has continued to increase his involvement and some of his colleagues are now
+   becoming more involved as well.
+ - Since the last report, we had contributions from several new contributors,
+   including five new contributors from outside Cloudera (the initial code
+   grantor). Of those, two were substantial pieces of new functionality: a new
+   sink to ingest data from Apache Flume, and an improved integration with
+   Apache Spark. We hope that the authors of these contributions will continue
+   to be involved in the community and grow into committers.
- Date of last release:
+ - In March, one of our mentors approached the development community with some
+   ideas to make the project more approachable for developers. As a result
+   of this, we've been working on a few action items:
+   1) We started a project blog and have been posting weekly updates on development
+   progress as well as more detailed posts on new features or project news.
+   We've heard from community members that this is an easy way to track
+   the project without subscribing to high-volume dev lists.
- When were the last committers or PMC members elected?
+   2) Our dev@ list is currently very noisy with a lot of code review comments.
+   For more casual contributors this can be overwhelming as code review
+   is intermingled with higher level project discussions. The community
+   discussed the issue and decided to split the code review traffic to a new
+   mailing list (currently awaiting infra to create it)
+   3) We've started an informal policy of emailing the dev list with a heads-up
+   whenever any new larger feature first shows up on gerrit or JIRA, to make it
+   easier for people to give input on large items without having to see every
+   bug fix or small improvement. For example, whenever design discussion starts
+   on a new feature, the contributor sends a 'heads-up' email to dev@.
+ - Development activity continues to be healthy. Mailing list traffic for the
+   dev list in April and May was similar to the proceeding months. Patch
+   contribution level is also fairly stable (50-80 commits/month) with lulls
+   around releases as people focus on release testing, documentation, etc.
+ - User mailing list traffic is steadily increasing in quantity and diversity:
+   108 messages in April vs 51 in March, 40 in Feb. April saw 26 distinct people
+   contribute to the user list discussion vs 15 in Feb. Website traffic also
+   indicates growing interest, with April having 30% more traffic than Feb.
+ - In the last two months, Kudu-related talks were delivered in San Francisco,
+   San Jose, Beijing, Boston, DC, Detroit, London, and Dublin. More talks
+   are scheduled for the upcoming months at ApacheCon Big Data, Strata/Hadoop World,
+   Berlin Buzzwords, and various local meetups.
+ How has the project developed since the last report?
+ Since the last report, we've accomplished the following milestones:
+ - We released Apache Kudu 0.7.1-incubating on 3/9/2016 to fix a few issues
+   found in the 0.7.0 release.
+ - We released Apache Kudu 0.8.0-incubating on 4/10/2016 with various new
+   features and improvements.
+ Date of last release:
+   April 10, 2016: Apache Kudu 0.8.0-incubating
+ When were the last committers or PMC members elected?
+   - Binglin Chang was added as a committer and PPMC member on April 4, 2016.
