Subject Re: [2nd DRAFT] Board Report for December 2014 - Please review
Date Mon, 15 Dec 2014 21:54:14 GMT
Hi Roman,

I sent the email to board@ last week after the incubator vote closed
following the instructions at
http://incubator.apache.org/guides/graduation.html#top-level-board-proposal

However, I missed subscribing to board@ first, so my email might be stuck
waiting for moderation.

> >>>>>
> >>>>>How has the project developed since the last report?

> >>>>>Streams has been incubating since 2012-11-20.

> >>>>>  specification with real-world datasets - valuing working, tested,

> >>>>>  Importantly, the project does not impose one execution framework -
> >>>>>  modules built to Apache Streams interfaces and coding standards may
> >>>>>  be instantiated within multiple JVM-based runtime containers,
> including
> >>>>>  popular ‘big-data' frameworks.

> >>>>>Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
