Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "February2018" by DaleLaBossiere
Date Mon, 05 Feb 2018 19:19:45 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

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

The "February2018" page has been changed by DaleLaBossiere:

- 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?
+   Community growth and participation continues to be an issue. One of the 
+   two active committer/PPMC members is retiring at the end of February
+   and the level of their continuing participation is unclear.
+   But synergy with Apache PLC4X is encouraging.

+   * Apache PLC4X is very interested in and promoting Apache Edgent as
+     part of their overall story.  An initial Edgent connector was created
+     and contributed to PLC4X.  Christofer Dutz demonstrated Edgent
+     working together with PLC4X at the IoT Hessen Meetup at end of
+     December and at Nortec Hamburg (Industrial fair).
+   * Total, we have 72 subscribers to our mailing list, a reduction
+     of 1 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.
+   * Apache Edgent 1.2.0 was released.  The release is the culmination
+     of the conversion to Maven and includes a number of enhancements and
+     bug fixes. Binaries are now available from Nexus and Maven Central
+     to make it easier to use Edgent.
+   * Edgent Samples are now available via the new GitHub repository
+     apache/incubator-edgent-samples.
+   * According to JIRA, 8 new issues were added and 23 issues were resolved
+     in the last 90 days
+   * 62 commits were made in the last 90 days.
+ 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.
