Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "CrailProposal" by PatrickStuedi
Date Wed, 04 Oct 2017 19:01:22 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

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

The "CrailProposal" page has been changed by PatrickStuedi:

  To-date, development has been sponsored by IBM and coordinated mostly by the core team of
researchers at the IBM Zurich Research Center. For Crail to fully transition to an "Apache
Way" governance model, it needs to start embracing the meritocracy-centric way of growing
the community of contributors.
+ === Orphaned Products ===
+ The Crail developers have a long-term interest in use and maintenance of the code and there
is also hope that growing a diverse community around the project will become a guarantee against
the project becoming orphaned. We feel that it is also important to put formal governance
in place both for the project and the contributors as the project expands. We feel ASF is
the best location for this.
+ === Inexperience with Open Source ===
+ Several of the initial committers are experienced open source developers (Linux Kernel,
DPDK, etc.).
+ === Relationships with Other Apache Products ===
+ As of now, Crail has been tested with Spark, Hadoop and Hive, but it is designed to integrate
with any of the Apache data processing frameworks. 
+ === Homogeneous Developers ===
+ The project already has a diverse developer base including contributions from organizations
and public developers.
+ === An Excessive Fascination with the Apache Brand ===
+ Crail solves a real need for a generic approach to leverage modern network and storage hardware
effectively in the Apache Hadoop and Spark ecosystems. Our rationale for developing Crail
as an Apache project is detailed in the Rationale section. We believe that the Apache brand
and community process will help to us to engage a larger community and facilitate closer ties
with various Apache data processing projects.
