>      work closely with YARN. Slider PPMC will decide what makes the most
>      sense as we progress through this exciting time.

>
> 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.
