Subject [DISCUSS] Graduate Sentry from the Apache Incubator
Date Fri, 19 Feb 2016 22:34:22 GMT
Hi all,

The Sentry community has discussed[1] and voted upon[2] graduation as
a TLP. Now we would like to get feedback from the incubator before we
can start a formal vote on general@. I have put down a summary of the
community and the project below. And we have also filled out the
Sentry maturity assessment document[3] for your reference.

The Sentry community and project has made significant progress during
its time in incubation. From fine grained access control to just Hive,
the project has evolved to enable storing/managing policies and
enforcing the rules for other Hadoop access methods like Solr, Impala,
HDFS, MapReduce, Sqoop, and soon Kafka. Each of these integrations
collaboratively driven by multiple Apache project communities. Other
- We have many new contributors (~20) who have contributed to the
project during the time of incubation, among which ~8 became
committers for their long term contributions.
- We have made 5 Apache releases, which were driven by 5 different
release managers.
- We have a diverse set of PMCs from different organizations(~15) and
we have passed the vote to make all current committers(8) be PMCs[1].
To simplify logistics, we propose this take effect at the time of
- We have active mailing lists, JIRA tracking to facilitate
communication in the community. And we also have a monthly high
bandwidth communication mechanism (hangouts) which facilitate the
design discussions.
