Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "December2018" by JeffFeng
Date Wed, 05 Dec 2018 14:54:01 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

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

The "December2018" page has been changed by JeffFeng:
https://wiki.apache.org/incubator/December2018?action=diff&rev1=51&rev2=52

  Superset has been incubating since 2017-05-21.
  
  Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
+ 1. Project operations - There are 3 specific issues that have been brought to our attention
that we are committed to addressing:
+ Discussions happening offline from dev@superset.incubator.apache.org (more below under issues
that the Incubator PMC or ASF Board should be aware of)
+ Unapproved releases (more below under issues that the Incubator PMC or ASF Board should
be aware of)
+ Trademark - Some research has been conducted here https://issues.apache.org/jira/projects/PODLINGNAMESEARCH/issues/PODLINGNAMESEARCH-124
, but more details have been requested. The expected format output described is not very prescriptive.
Just commented asking for a example of a well executed name search. 
+ 2. Plan and execute our first Apache release.  Though we have been in incubation for a year
and a half, we are committed to planning and following through on our first Apache release
together with the community by kicking off a discussion thread on dev@superset.incubator.apache.org
 to align on the deliverables for the first Apache release.
+ 3. Align on a long-term product roadmap with the broader Apache Superset community.  As
a part of planning our first Apache release, we would also like to build out the high-level
roadmap for the project with a look ahead of 1 year.  We plan to create this by starting a
discussion thread on dev@superset.incubator.apache.org  to work collaboratively on a vision
and roadmap for 2019.
+ 
+ 
+ 
+ Any issues that the Incubator PMC or ASF Board might wish/need to be aware of?
+ * Discussions happening offline from email - The dev@superset.incubator.apache.org email
list has not been very active as a channel of discussion.  To be clear, this is both a result
of 1) when the list started, GitHub spammed the email list with notifications and our hypothesis
is that many people filtered this email alias 2) the Apache email list does not support images
making it challenging to support a project that is UI-heavy as a tool for data visualization
and 3) other communication channels are being used to compliment the email list.  On #3, there
is an open bi-weekly meeting for contributors and committers to discuss issues (no decisions
are made here - please see the update on SIPs in the project development section) and while
the link to the Google Doc with the notes was posted to the dev@superset.incubator.apache.org
email list, we could have done a better job of posting the notes from the meetings and we
recognize that it is more challenging for some community members who live in other timezones
to participate.  There are also two reasonably active forums for live discussions (Slack Group
http://apache-superset.slack.com and Gitter Channel https://gitter.im/airbnb/superset) however,
we now know that casual conversations should only happen on these channels and that the majority
of the discussion needs to happen via email.  As a next step, we will have an initial meeting
with the Mentors, PPMC and Committers on Thursday, December 13th to figure out what it takes
to address this issue and help get the project on track.  We will also use this meeting as
an opportunity to align across the PPMC and Committers about our obligations and responsibilities
as well as to receive coaching from our Mentors on the Apache Way.
+ * Unapproved releases - Currently, committers working on the project have not been following
the proper procedures in discussing the content of releases on the dev@superset.incubator.apache.org
email list nor have we been consistent in bringing releases to a vote.  This negatively impacts
the ability of other community members to participate.  We were uncertain how to manage the
LICENSE/COPYRIGHT files and how they relate to convenience releases and we have struggled
to understand how to proceed with the name search requirement.  That said, it doesn’t justify
pushing a release forward and at a minimum we will discontinue this practice.  We will also
discuss this with our Mentors on 12/13 to receive coaching on this topic.
+ * As mentioned earlier, having an Apache email list that doesn’t support images makes
it very challenging for our project.  We would be interested to know if the ASF Infrastructure
Team has any plans to address this.
+ 
+ 
+ How has the community developed since the last report?
+ * Organic growth of our Github contributors (274->306), forks (3627->3974), watchers
+   (1077->1157) and stars (20,519->22,097)
+ * Added Krist Wongsuphasawat as a new committer.
+ 
+ How has the project developed since the last report?
+ * We have been intentional in discussing and voting on issues using GitHub (for SIPs) as
it supports images (a current challenge with the Apache email listserv) and held votes for
them on the dev@superset.incubator.apache.org list
+ * Faster, easier editing of datasources (adding new metrics, dimensions, metadata) - We've
now added the ability to modify datasources directly from the Explore view. 
+ * New time range filter with added simple default options, and relative date filters.
+ * Url shortener for dashboards, for easier sharing.
+ * Improvements to the visualize flow - You can now go from a sql query right to a chart
without needing to configure columns.
+ * A healthy, constant flow of bug fixes, quality improvements and new
+   features, take a look at the project’s Pulse on Github for more details
+ 
+ 
+ How does the podling rate their own maturity.
