Dear Wiki user,

The "July2016" page has been changed by Lei Chang:

+ Apache HAWQ is a Hadoop native SQL query engine that combines the key technological advantages
of MPP database with the scalability and convenience of Hadoop. HAWQ reads data from and writes
data to HDFS natively.  HAWQ delivers industry-leading performance and linear scalability.
It provides users the tools to confidently and successfully interact with petabyte range data
sets. HAWQ provides users with a complete, standards compliant SQL interface.
- HAWQ is an advanced enterprise SQL on Hadoop analytic engine built around a
- robust and high-performance massively-parallel processing (MPP) SQL framework
- evolved from Pivotal Greenplum Database.
  HAWQ has been incubating since 2015-09-04.
  Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
-   1.
-   2.
-   3.
+   1. Produce our first Apache Release
+   2. Expand the community, by adding new contributors and focusing on making sure that there's
a much more robust level of conversations and discussions happening around roadmaps and feature
development on the public dev mailing list
+   3. Infrastructure migration: create Jenkins projects that build HAWQ binary, source tarballs,
and run feature tests including at least installcheck-good tests for each commit (HAWQ-127).
  Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
  aware of?
+ Everything seems to be smooth, nothing urgent at this time.
- 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?
+ 1. we have seen significant increase of communication and collaboration across the whole
community from last several weeks. The community becomes more open for discussion around the
roadmap, various features that committers are working on, infrastructure enhancements for
the project.
+ 2. One meetup: Zeppelin meets MADlib & HAWQ (
- Date of last release:
+ 3. The PPMC was made aware of an erroneous use of Apache HAWQ (incubating) trademark by
a vendor doing research with an older, eponymous Pivotal product. The PPMC is working with
a vendor and ASF's VP of Branding to resolve the issue
+ How has the project developed since the last report?
- When were the last committers or PMC members elected?
+ 1. The first release candidate has been proposed and it is under the voting process on the
dev mailing list
+ 2. New features added include snappy compression for AO tables, HAWQ register feature for
registering data into HAWQ native tables
+ 3. The build system has been simplified a lot by making some components as optional (for
example, pl/r, orca et al)
+ 4. The community is consolidating the testing frameworks including installcheck tests and
gtest into gtest based framework.
+ 5. Including the incubating disclaimer on Apache HAWQ website based on the podling branding
+ Date of last release:
+ We have not had a release yet.
+ When were the last committers or PMC members elected?
