Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "July2017" by DanielDekany
Date Sat, 01 Jul 2017 21:59:43 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

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

The "July2017" page has been changed by DanielDekany:
https://wiki.apache.org/incubator/July2017?action=diff&rev1=6&rev2=7

  
  Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
  
-   1.
-   2.
-   3.
- 
+   We have a large user base but a rather small group of committers.
+   This was actually expected, given the maturity (and topic) of the project.
+   While the FreeMarker 3 branch, which was started 5 month ago, will be much
+   more appealing for contributors, development and growth due to that will
+   certainly take a long time. In other respects the project is mature and
+   ready for graduation.
+   
  Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
  aware of?
  
+   We are eager to graduate but we're afraid that the number of active
+   contributors will prevent that in the foreseeable future. But remaining in
+   the incubator hurts the project as well. One problem it causes is that many
+   projects are stuck with the last non-Apache release of the project, from
+   two years ago, since they won't depend on an artifact whose version contains
+   "-incubating".

- Please feel free to add your own commentary.
  
+   Most activity was in the FreeMarker 3 branch; most notably, FreeMarker was
+   modularized and switched to Gradle.
+   The FreeMarker 2 branch was less active, but had some fixes and new features.
+   During the last report period we have received a code donation, the source
+   code of an online template evaluator service, which was since then cleand up,
+   and is now running on Apache infrastructure (http://try.freemarker.org/).
+   The build of FreeMarker and of the template evaluator service was added to
+   Travis CI.
