Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "March2017" by MarkGrover
Date Thu, 02 Mar 2017 17:43:54 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

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

The "March2017" page has been changed by MarkGrover:

+ Apache Spot is a solution stack that provides the capability to ingest IT related telemetry
(network flows, domain name service information and proxy server logs) and provide unsupervised
machine learning capabilities to identify suspicious activity.  The information is organized
and presented using operational analytics so that a security analyst can investigate the most
suspicious connections. Apache Spot is built on an open data model using Apache Spark and
Apache Hadoop.
- Apache Spot is a platform for network telemetry built on an open data model
- and Apache Hadoop.
  Spot has been incubating since 2016-09-23.
  Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
-   1.
-   2.
-   3.
+   1.  Move infrastructure and development to ASF (code, issues, mailing list, ...)
+   2.  Build diverse community
+   3.  Demonstrate ability to create releases
- Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
+ Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be aware of?
- 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?
+ Based on initial feedback, process for issues was updated on the project website, with primary
objective to facilitate the workflow and interaction with Community, and having diverse ownership
of them until resolution.
+ Slack channel has become very popular, however in order to adhere to ASF official communications
channels, those conversations that involve quick question will be kept there, any extended
discussion on code, pipeline, and architecture, are being ported to Dev mail list.
+ There has been a concern to get continuous improvement of the UI on Apache Spot, committers
have been working on process to get UX interviews that help to understand and address community
and compliance needs.
+ How has the project developed since the last report?
+ The project got a major architecture change in order to remove CSV’s, offload storage
from the OS file system and instead leverage HDFS (for distributed architecture).
+ Per community request through JIRA issue, and in order to facilitate the installation/adoption
of the project for scale deployments, an installation script consolidating the ones that were
built per pipeline component has been pulled to repository, it will reduce the complexity
of porting files and configuration variables, by having a central point of deployment.
+ Open Data Models, which serves as a framework for data sources normalization, initially
for ingestion, was ported through its Specification to the project repository, this will bring
more contributions to facilitate the design of the NoSQL table, and then determine technology
selection through discussion and voting through mailing list.
+ February Metrics:
+     +---------------------------------------------+
+     |   Metric                          | counts  |

+     | Resolved Issues                   |    1    |
+     | Pull Requests merged              |    3    |
+     | Pull Requests proposed            |    3    |

  Date of last release:
+ N/A
- When were the last committers or PPMC members elected?
+ When were the last committers or PMC members elected?
+ Last committer was elected on 2/24
+ How does the podling rate their own maturity?
+ There was a strong focus on code delivery over the last quarter, towards Apache release,
community adoption keeps growing, now by adding a layer of process for opening issues and
commits, plus interaction over channels we're bringing contributions from others, towards
Apache release.
