Wrong place

- = Apache Warble Proposal =
  
- == Abstract ==
- 
-     Apache Warble is a distributed endpoint monitoring solution where the agent
-     is hosted your own hardware. The aim of Warble is to produce a more balanced 
-     and less binary view of services and systems, lowering the rates of false positives
-     while also providing greater insight into possible peering issues and proactive trend
-     analysis.
-      
- ==    Proposal ==
-      
-     The goal of Warble will be to bring internal control of distributed 
-     monitoring back to the end user. Warble can be used as an independent
-     service running on your own infrastructure monitoring other services
-     in your infrastructure. 
-      
- ==     Background and Rationale ==
-      
-     The beginning of this project was prompted by the service pingmybox.com 
-     (PMB) going end of life. This brought up conversation about FOSS services 
-     that can monitor internal and external services. PMB offered a unique code 
-     base to build this service upon a known infrastructure.
-      
- ===    Initial Goals ===
- 
-     Bring PMB code into the ASF, refactor the client/server into 
-     a more reusable structure. 
-     Further reuse of code gives us the a great starting point to build a 
-     starting point. 
-      
- ==    Current Status ==
-      
-     The software exists as a proprietary service. We wish to convert this to
-     a FLOSS solution.
-      
- ==    Meritocracy ==
-      
-     The initial PMC list covers new folks coming into the ASF. 
-     
- ==    Community ==
-      
-     There exists a large user-base of software like Warble, as well as existing users of
the old propietary service. It is our hope that we
-     can convert a great deal of these to contributors and testers for the
-     new open source product.
-      
- ==    Core Developers ==
-      
-     The initial set of developers are a lot of newcomers:
- 
-     * Daniel Gruno <humbedooh@apache.org>
-     * Chris Thistlethwaite <christ@apache.org>
-     * Haig Didizian <haig@didizian.com>
-     * Andrew Karetas <Ajkaretas@gmail.com>
-     * Chandler Claxton <claxtonchandler@gmail.com>
-     * Luke Stevens <snevets.ekul@gmail.com>
-     * Mike Andescavage <michael.andescavage@live.com>
-     * Chris Lambertus <cml@apache.org>
-      
- ==    Known Risks ==
-     
-     There are many existing services that provide external monitoring. They
-     are well established and have large user bases.
-      
- ===    Orphaned Products ===
-      
-     The initial PMC has great interest in open source projects, though no formal 
-     projects have been run.
-      
-      
- ===    Inexperience with Open Source ===
-      
-     Most of the initial PPMC members are new to the ASF and some are new to open source
projects. However,
-     all are very interested in giving back to the community and projects.  Having said that,
there are
-     several people involved with extensive experience in the Apache Way and our procedures
and processes.
-      
- ===    Homogenous Developers ===
-      
-     The initial set of developers are employed by a variety of companies,
-     located across the world, and used to working on a variety of
-     distributed projects.
-      
- ===    Reliance on Salaried Developers ===
-      
-     We do not expect the interest of the proposed initial PMC to be directly
-     tied to current employment, but will actively seek to grow our volunteer
-     base regardless.
-      
- ===    Relationships with Other Apache Products ===
-      
-     Not much to say here. Many ASF projects make use of the proprietary
-     offering, we wish to open source it and have people engage in the
-     development of the project. There are, at present, indirect relationships 
-     in that some dependencies are built on Apache software, but these are 
-     generally by proxy and does not merit considering Warble as a sub-project
-     of an existing TLP.
-      
-      
- ==    Initial Source ==
-      
-     The initial task of the PMC will be assessing what we wish the project to
-     contain. The proprietary vendor is willing to donate the software, but
-     considerable rewriting and relicensing will have to take place. This will
-     likely happen in stages, with the scrapers and UI being ported first,
-     and a backend auth system being partly ported/donated, and partly
-     developed from scratch at the ASF.
-      
- ===    Source and Intellectual Property Submission Plan ===
-      
-     All the existing code in question (from the PMB suite) is owned by
-     Quenda IvS, and will be donated to the ASF.
-      
- ===    External Dependencies ===
-      
-     The current code base depends on incompatible licenses for
-     visualizations. We will work towards 100% compatibility with the Apache
-     License v/2.
-      
- ===    Cryptography ===
-      
-     Warble will make use of some SSL/TLS and cryptography in order to transmit data
-     between nodes and main server, however we will not be incorporating any cryptography
-     in the project code itself, but rather rely on existing encryption libraries and protocols.
-

- ===    Other Resources ===
-      
-     We have no other requirements at present.

-     that we can get these donated by companies interested in furthering the development
-     of the project.
