Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "January2019" by StefanBodewig
Date Wed, 02 Jan 2019 11:32:14 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

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

The "January2019" page has been changed by StefanBodewig:

  Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
-   1.
-   2.
-   3.
+   1. Building the community: The PPMC and committer group has a large percentage of codecentric
employees, we have been recruiting people from other companies, but will have to continue
these efforts for establishing a healthy Apache community.
+   2. Onboarding of new committers: With PLC4X several people on the team are not very familiar
with the Apache Way. We have started and will continue our efforts on this onboarding.
+   3. Make our first release
  Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
  aware of?
+ Not at the moment.
- 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?
+ We have managed to get some more people to contribute. While we are still waiting for the
initial contribution (OPC-UA Server) of one person to be submitted, we were just able to successfully
integrate another first code contribution into our build which seeds the C++ API module (Thanks
to Markus Sommer for this).
+ Github notes the number of contributors has gone up to 12 … so I think we’re looking
good as we are continuously getting more people on board, hopefully soon also into committership
and PPMC involvement.
- How would you assess the podling's maturity?
- Please feel free to add your own commentary.
+ In the last quarter of 2018 Christofer Dutz had several public talks on PLC4X:
+  * 09.10.2018: “Between the towers” Meetup, Frankfurt
+  * 24.10.2018: “Oss Summit Europe” Conference, Edinburgh
+  * 13.11.2018: “3. Fachkonferenz - Big data in der Industire“ Conference, Berlin
+  * 15.11.2018: „RheinJUG“ Meetup, Düsseldorf
+  * 06.12.2018: „IoTHessen“ Meetup, Frankfurt
+ From 22.11.2018-26.11.2018 we had our second official community event: This time we meet
at the codecentric finca on Mallorca for 4 days of hacking, coding, discussions and community
+ All in all 3 PPMC members participated and one new person.
+ On 03.12.2018 we successfully released: Version 0.2.0 (RC1) and we’re currently working
on enabling new release-managers for the next release.
+ Our mailing list subscriptions went up another 4 to currently 42 subscribers.
+ Our Twitter followers increased by 55 (almost doubled) to 114 followers (Mainly as a direct
result of @Java tweeting about us).
+ On GitHub we now have 42 “Stars” (increase of 18) and 20 “Forks” (increase of 6)
+ We have successfully performed two major POCs with customers from the industry (Companies
in the pharmaceutical and automotive sectors) and the results where overwhelming.
+ We are expecting to see more adoption in 2019. Also are we trying to convince companies
to allow us to officially talk about what we did in order to spread the word.
+ Also have we had first paid contracts where the companies were paying members of the project
to implement some general purpose features that were missing as well as bug fixing and allowing
those results to become part of the open-source project (Which I think is pretty surprising
as the concept of Open-Source is quite new to these companies)
+ How would you assess the podling's maturity?
+ We have a mix of new participants and experienced Apache people involved.
+ So far, the new participants have shown great willingness and success in adopting the Apache
+ However, we still need to continue: the on-boarding increasing the diversity of the team.
+ Also we are currently trying to enable other team members to take over vital roles (Like
being a release manager) so we no longer have areas with personal singularities.
+ Please feel free to add your own commentary.
