Subject Re: [FINAL] Incubator PMC Board Report - November 2016
Date Fri, 11 Nov 2016 20:23:23 GMT

Sorry for the late change request, but is it okay to remove Metron from the report front matter since they aren’t due to report this month?

>> 
>> Slider has been incubating since 2014-04-29.
>> 
>> Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:

>>  1. Apache Slider community/PPMC has voted to move portions of Slider into
>>     Apache Hadoop YARN as modules. It is possible that the remaining
>> pieces
>>     will be moved at a later point in time or become obsolete or evolve to
>>     work closely with YARN. Slider PPMC will decide what makes the most
>>     sense as we progress through this exciting time.
>>  2. Getting more external users
>>  3. Growth of a diverse set of developers/committers/PMC members is also
>>     crucial towards the final state of Slider
>> 
>> Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
>> aware of?
>> 
>> No.
>> 
>> How has the community developed since the last report?
>> 
>> The Apache Hadoop YARN community/PMC and Apache Slider community/PPMC
>> had decided to move portions of Slider into YARN, to make fast and
>> significant
>> progress on: YARN-4692 - [Umbrella] Simplified and first-class support for
>> services in YARN. As a result, the Slider Core module (including
>> Application
>> Master, Client and Java unit tests) has been rolled into an Apache Hadoop
>> YARN feature branch as a hadoop-yarn-slider-core module.
>> This effort is being captured in: YARN-5079 : Native YARN framework layer
>> for services. All the migrations are happening in a branch (namely
>> yarn-native-services) created of off Hadoop trunk. As a result of this,
>> we are already seeing interest in the Hadoop committers/PMC, who have
>> started to contribute and submit patches to Slider.
>> 
>> In order to support existing users of Slider, and to provide seamless
>> migration, there will be sufficient overlap between the time when a stable
>> state of long running services support is available in some future version
>> of YARN and the time till an independent Slider release is available. The
>> community/PPMC will also determine the future state of Slider as we
>> navigate through these changes.
>> 
>> The discussions on the Slider and YARN community DLs can be viewed here -
>> 
>> https://s.apache.org/0hoh
>> https://s.apache.org/MncV
>> 
>> For the benefit of those who would like to use Slider Core from the
>> Hadoop codebase, but continue to use classic Slider Agent and legacy
>> app-packages, a new branch (yarn-native-services) has been created
>> in classic Slider repo. This branch retains only the Agent (python) code
>> and the App Packages. It adds Slider Core module as a Hadoop
>> dependency. This allows users to consume the latest of Slider Core.
>> Future classic Slider releases can be made purely off of this branch.
>> 
>> Additionally an effort is being made to create an agent-less provider for
>> legacy app-packages, which could help users to completely migrate to
>> Hadoop codebase for creating long-running services with Slider. Expectation
>> from app-package owners would be to make minor modification of their
>> packages. Primary changes would be to shed the dependency on python
>> Agent code, effectively making packages much simpler than what they
>> look like today in classic Slider.
>> 
>> How has the project developed since the last report?
>> 
>> There has been fewer bug fixes on the classic Slider side as most of
>> the focus has been on developing features on native YARN services in
>> the Hadoop codebase. Work continues on support for complex services
>> (assemblies) and agent-less applications in Slider. The efforts on Slider
>> Core will continue in the new services branch created in YARN. Few
>> key features which were merged to classic Slider as well were -
>> SLIDER-875 - Ability to create an Uber application package with
>> capability to deploy and manage as a single business app, and
>> SLIDER-1107 - Generate app configuration files in AM. Several issues
>> identified by Coverity scans were resolved as well. Additionally few
>> patches were contributed by the community fixing functional and
>> performance issues. Slider community plans to ship a release in the
>> next quarter with all these features and bug fixes.

>> computations running on Apache Hadoop MapReduce and Apache Spark.
>> 
>> SystemML has been incubating since 2015-11-02.
>> 
>> Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
>> 
>> - Grow SystemML community: increase mailing list activity,
>>   increase adoption of SystemML for scalable machine learning, encourage
>>   data scientists to adopt DML and PyDML algorithm scripts, respond to
>>   user feedback to ensure SystemML meets the requirements of real-world
>>   situations, write papers, and present talks about SystemML.
>> - Continue to produce releases.
>> - Increase the diversity of our project's contributors and committers.

>> at VLDB'16. The "Compressed Linear Algebra for Large-Scale Machine

>> 
>> Tamaya has been incubating since 2014-11-14.
>> 
>> Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
>> 
>>  1. Extend Community

>> 
>> Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be

>> After our next releases and improving our homepage we'd like to graduate

>> 
>> 
>> How has the community developed since the last report?
>> 
>> We have increasing feedback of use cases to be covered and also a few
>> bug reports, so Tamaya is used by developers and companies.
>> Additionally we are doing regular bi-weekly hangouts and have defined a
>> well defined roadmap to release and restructure our project.
>> Apart from that we gathered feedback from JavaOne 2016: official
>> Configuration JSR proposal and Anatole had a talk there.
>> 
>> The conflicts that arose in the past seem to be solved as some of the
>> mentors and early committers have left the project. Since we've
>> established our hangouts we have the feeling of beeing more connect and
>> able to work towards a common goal.
>> 
>> How has the project developed since the last report?
>> 
>>  Apart from the main project we established new repositories to hold
>>  extensions and sandbox modules. In order to get rid of the problematic
>>  webpage generation we decided to start from scratch.
>>  In addition to making the API more smooth, we try to keep the base
>>  repository/project as lean as possible and prepare a next release.
>>  Due to various technical issues (infrastructure behaves differently from
>>  local builds and checkouts) we did not meet our deadline on getting a
>>  release out by the end of October.

>> 2. Grow a diverse community: We should put some emphasis on growing the

>> 
>> Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be aware

>> 
>> NONE, previous issue with LGPL dependency has been RESOLVED as the JeroMQ

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