Subject Re: October board report overdue
Date Tue, 08 Oct 2013 13:11:16 GMT
Hi Nick,

Thank you for the kind reminder.

I have made myself now a repeating calendar alert for the report (and
would suggest to all ODF developers to do the same!).

I realized, I do not have access to
http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/October2013

Checked out the latest sources and take a look at the commit log
see https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/49473263/odftoolkit20131008.txt
There where only my clearance of the clerezza dependency.

The branch with all my work of the past year (branch, no fork - as my
current employer desire to contribute back) is not merged back and due
to work load is likely to be merged back first quarter next year.

Therefore in the following I created a draft for a report inline for
now. I suggest the report should be:
------------------------
ODF Toolkit

Java modules that allow programmatic creation, scanning and manipulation of
OpenDocument Format (ISO/IEC 26300 == ODF) documents

ODF Toolkit has been incubating since 2011-08-01.

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

  1. Grow the community, especially attracting new developers.
  2. Hold an informal graduation readiness vote

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

How has the community developed since the last report?

  Higher feed-back from the users mailing list, but no new developers.

  Discussion of whether we should aim for TLP status or merge into an
existing
  TLP with similar alignment, such as POI or OpenOffice.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  Clear unnecessary dependency from the Clarizza project.

Date of last release:

  2013-06-22

PS: Our Wiki http://incubator.apache.org/projects/odftoolkit.html seems
outdated in compare with our site http://incubator.apache.org/odftoolkit/
Shall we copy the content or remove the prior site? What option do we
have, Nick?

Kind regards,
Svante
