Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "August2017" by wcmarsha
Date Wed, 02 Aug 2017 18:32:19 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

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

The "August2017" page has been changed by wcmarsha:

- Edgent is a stream processing programming model and lightweight runtime to
- execute analytics at devices on the edge or at the gateway. (Formerly known as
- Quarks)
+ Apache Edgent is a programming SDK and micro-kernel style runtime 
+ that can be embedded in gateways and small footprint edge devices enabling
+ local, real-time, analytics on the continuous streams of data coming
+ from equipment, vehicles, systems, appliances, devices and sensors of 
+ all kinds (for example, Raspberry Pis or smart phones). Working in 
+ conjunction with centralized analytic systems, Apache Edgent provides 
+ efficient and timely analytics across the whole IoT ecosystem: from the 
+ center to the edge.
  Edgent has been incubating since 2016-02-29.
  Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
-   1.
-   2.
-   3.
+   1. Create and expand a diverse community of contributors and committers
+      around the Edgent project.
+   2. Attracting at least another independent committer/ppmc member.
+   3. Finding further real world users of Edgent
  Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
  aware of?
+   No

+ How has the community developed since the last report?
+     * Total, we have 70 subscribers to our mailing list, an improvement
+ 	of 5 since the last report.	
+ 	* We have had a noticeable increase in the number of information-seeking
+ 	emails on the mailing list from new Edgent developers.
+ 	* A San Francisco meetup has been scheduled for the 20th of September
+     to demonstrate an Edgent video analytics application which was
+ 	initially presented at ApacheCon 2017 (Video Analytics at the Edge: 
+ 	Fun with Apache Edgent, OpenCV and a Raspberry Pi).
+ 	* In addition to Chris Dutz, we have had one non-committer PR merged.
+ How has the project developed since the last report?
+   * With the contributions of Christoper Dutz and Dale LaBossiere, the
+ 	Edgent build system is undergoing an overhaul to Maven from Gradle.
+ 	Maven provides benefits over Gradle, including a more rigid build 
+ 	structure, and the Maven package system.
+   * According to JIRA, 13 new issues were added to the project and 6 
+     issues have been resolved or closed between May 2017 and August 2017.
  How would you assess the podling's maturity?
- Please feel free to add your own commentary.
+ Edgent is making slow but consistent progress towards graduation. While we
+ don't yet meet the diversity requirements, we put emphasis on community 
+ growth through outreach which will ultimately pave the way for additional
+ committers and contributors.
+ Additionally, before we graduate it is important that we find users 
+ outside of IBM. As most Edgent committers are employed by IBM, external 
+ stakeholders help ensure long term contribution to the project.
