Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "November2017" by DaleLaBossiere

Dear Wiki user,

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

The "November2017" page has been changed by DaleLaBossiere:

Added Edgent status

- 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?
+   While two contributors are still quite active working on
+   the conversion to maven and towards getting out the next release,
+   there has been very little other community or dev list activity.
- 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?
+   * Will Marshall had a meetup in San Francisco on 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).
+   * Christofer Dutz gave a presentation at Solutions Hamburg that
+     included Apache Edgent.
+   * There was one new non-committer enhancement/PR merged.
+   * There was one JIRA from a new individual: asked & answered.
+   * Total, we have 73 subscribers to our mailing list, an improvement
+     of 3 since the last report.
+ How has the project developed since the last report?
- How would you assess the podling's maturity?
- Please feel free to add your own commentary.
+   * Two contributors/committers have been very active overhauling the
+     Edgent build system to Maven from Gradle on the features/maven
+     branch. We are very close to merging and working on a release.
+     Maven provides benefits over Gradle, including a more rigid build
+     structure, the Maven package system, and ASF release process integration.
+     The work includes a variety of other cleanup / usability items,
+     such as how we distribute Edgent samples and how users build them.
+   * According to JIRA, 6 new issues were added to the project and
+     2 issues have been resolved or closed between August 2017 and October 2017.
+     11 issues are in progress as part of PR-309 (the maven work).
+ How would you assess the podling's maturity?
+   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.
