here is a proposal for the incubator report (please comment/amend):

S4 (Simple Scalable Streaming System) is a general-purpose, distributed, 
scalable, partially fault-tolerant, pluggable platform that allows 
programmers to easily develop applications for processing continuous, 
unbounded streams of data.

S4 entered incubation on September 26th 2011.

* Infrastructure issues
- we are waiting for an answer to our proposal for using an apache git 
repository instead of converting our existing code base from git to svn. 
This proposal was in response to a call by the infra team for joining 
the git testing program.

* Other issues before graduation
  1. Migrate code from github to Apache infrastructure and make an 
initial release on Apache with the current code (version 0.4 = version 
0.3 + checkpointing + bugfixes)

2. learning and applying Apache's procedures (consensus), and 
defining/adapting development workflows for the project

3. Complete the current work on the new version (0.5), which is a major 
refactoring in order to simplify concepts, API, and introduce new 
features such as dynamic deployment and reliable channels

4. Grow the community

* Activity since last report:

1. started using the jira tracker: 30 tickets created and commented so far

2. redirected users and developers from former google groups forum to 
apache's mailing lists

3. Migrated web site from to

4. Most of the development work has been focused on 0.5
