Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "December2018" by DaveGrove

The "December2018" page has been changed by DaveGrove:

More accurate description of staging environment issues

     1. Issue backlog building on incubator-openwhisk is still a major issue (partly due to
#2 above). As of this report, the "open" issue backlog on the "main" platform repo is 397
(up from 384 as of last report). The open PR count on the main repo has held steady at around
30 (down from 50+ 6 months ago), but still 1/3 of the ready-to-merge PRs are more than 1 month
old.  The PR and Issue backlog on other project repositories is generally much lower and of
less concern than the Issue backlog on the main repo.
     2. Need to prioritize and work to reduce while advancing major proposals around restructuring
around abstractions to accommodate running on Knative while enhancing support for better logging/scheduling
and performance testing enhancements.
     3. Trying to add more active Committers to augment those who have dropped off in their
activity; however, we have reached an impasse where potential new Contributor pull requests
are not getting timely reviews/merges.  We have potential new Contribs. to front-end Runtimes
we will look to nominate ASAP, but we still lack back-end Contribs.
-    4. It seems that Apache Infra. will not provide us servers to host a staging environment
that would help us perform needed staging testing on Pull Requests.  This means that independent
testing needs to be done by members (companies). Six months after a corporate donation was
made, Apache Infra. finally provided the VMs and we have started to setup for PR testing.

+    4. The project is still working on establishing a proper staging environment to enable
proper testing without depending on closed testing infrastructure at involved companies. Unfortunately,
even after finally arranging a corporate donation to the ASF in June to support this need,
it took until late October for Apache Infra to finish provisioning the machines. 
     5. Formal hand-off of OpenWhisk trademark/logo from IBM needs to be executed; need to
identify process for this. See #3 above.
        * Discussion started w/ Apache legal via "legal-discuss" mailing list with subject
"Trademark handoff for "OpenWhisk" name and logo".
        * IBM intends to hand-off ownership of trademarks at time of graduation.
