draft report

  The Apache Incubator is the entry path into the ASF for projects and
  codebases wishing to become part of the Foundation's efforts.
- < narrative >
+ There are presently 51 podlings incubating. During the month of January,
+ podlings executed 3 distinct releases. We added no new IPMC members and 
+ had no IPMC members retire.
+ We have one new podling Hudi. No project graduated last month but several podlings are heading
towards graduation in the next few months.
+ BatchEE took a vote to go to Apache Geronimo or TLP and decided on TLP and are back to being
stuck in trying to graduate.
+ We're currently missing several podling report but hopefully they be submitted and have
mentor sign-off on time.
+ There was one IP clearance.
+ The mentor situation is continuing to improve. One of the mentors for the new Hudi project
realised he didn't have the time be be able to give to the project and stood down. Thanks
to him for being able to recognising that he wasn't going to be an effective mentor. Other
mentors stepped forward to do the job.
+ We have a problem with unapproved releases. A spot check on some (not all) projects reporting
this month showed that five projects were making unapproved releases. Hopefully that's a statical
aberration, but it seems likely that we probably have more codlings making unapproved releases
than this. This has been brought up one the general list and I see a few projects have taken
note of it.
+ Three of the project Doris, Pinot and Sharding Sphere responded quickly and removed the
releases. SDAP is addressing the issue. ECharts is a little reluctant to remove the releases
due to the high use and popularity of the project and is trying to find another way of resolving
the situation. The board may need to be involved.
+ ECharts was also found to hosting a Chinese version of their incubating site at echarts
dot baidu dot com. The PPMC is dealing with this.
+ Again a reminder to all incubating projects and mentors that all releases made available
to the general public need to be approved by the PPMC and IPMC. This includes docker, githubb,
PyPi, npm and any other platform for publishing releases, and also covers release candidates.
If in doubt please ask your mentors or on the incubator general list.
+ Superset has not made an Apache release but is making progress towards one. They accidentally
published a release candidate to GitHub but are sorting that out.
+ There was also an interesting discussion on binary releases on legal-discuss that could
have some impact on the incubator.
+ New new project creating ASF training material may either go to straight to TLP or via the
incubator. This did raise a few questions about how initial committers are selected.
