The "March2017" page has been changed by SergioFernandez:

restored openwhisk report

- distributed Serverless computing platform
+ OpenWhisk is an open source, distributed Serverless computing platform able
+ to execute application logic (Actions) in response to events (Triggers) from
+ external sources (Feeds) or HTTP requests governed by conditional logic
+ (Rules). It provides a programming environment supported by a REST API-based
+ Command Line Interface (CLI) along with tooling to support packaging and
+ catalog services.
  OpenWhisk has been incubating since 2016-11-23.
  Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
-   1.
-   2.
-   3.
+  1. Moving github repos under the Apache Github Org (organization move,
+      repository renames), first 2 repos. moved; issues identified and being worked.
+  2. Working to redirect to,
+      update to be Apache compliant (pre-req is repo. move completion
+      so that we can generate site via Jenkins/Apache tooling)
+  3. Working through project incubation checklists on CWIKI
+       Compliance Checklist for website
  Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
  aware of?
+   - Travis CI takes hours to process a PR on Apache Org; whereas it takes minutes under
+     OpenWhisk org.
+         - The root cause is that Apache has 185 repos enable with Travis [1], but only an
allocation of 
+           30 concurrent builds. OpenWhisk typically needs 5 concurrent build slots by itself
+   - Many of the OpenWhisk’s repos. have cross-build dependencies (primarily for Travis
CI tests)
+     this may will cause issues as repos. are brought over 1 at a time if forwarding links
are not
+     preserved by GitHub.
+   - There may be issues with Committers in China being able
+     to enable 2FA since it does not work with their cell phones and the
+     alternative encryption tool seems to be blocked. Investigating with 
+     infra.
- 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?
+   - Committers have begun enable 2FA for GitHub and enable cross-
+     authentication to their Apache accounts using GitBox.
+   - “dev", “private” email list traffic continues to be healthy; positive
+     discussion of a few new code feature/change topics
+   - GitHub project “Stars” = 1144 (up from 1024 last month).
+    - a few new contributors in package deployment tool repo.
+    - more active discussions occurring on “dev” list.
+   - Created new public Slack Team ( includes channels:
+     - “general” for general project questions and help
+     - “dev” channel where notifications of all OpenWhisk GitHub Issues are posted.
+     - “dev-pr” channel where notifications of all OpenWhisk GitHub Pull Requests are
+     = Note: all development related discussions are directed to our “dev” mailing list.
+ How has the project developed since the last report?
- How would you assess the podling's maturity?
