+2013-April Tashi Incubator Status Report
+Tashi has been incubating since September 2008.
+The Tashi project aims to build a software infrastructure for cloud 
+computing on massive internet-scale datasets (what we call Big Data). 
+The idea is to build a cluster management system that enables the Big 
+Data that are stored in a cluster/data center to be accessed, shared, 
+manipulated, and computed on by remote users in a convenient, efficient, 
+and safe manner.
+Tashi originally encompassed just the tools to manage virtual machines 
+using Xen and QEMU, but has been merged with Zoni, which manages the 
+physical aspects of a cluster like power control, network settings and 
+handing out physical machines.
+Activities from January to April:
+Added the ballon virtio to qemu options so tashi can dynamically change the
+amount of memory allocated to a vm.  Found a small issue with how tashi
+destroys vm's in qemu.  If we kill the process, the network cleanup scripts do
+not run.  This caused issues while experimenting with openvswitch.  This was
+changed be a little nicer so qemu has the ability to clean the network up.
+Additions to the administrative database management included the ability to
+pull the information from a local file on the system.  Even with caching, there
+were problems with very slow requests to the admin database. Initial version of
+disk management was added so that disk images can be cloned, copied, and
+The project has a user community, but it is small. Growth mostly has happened
+by word of mouth. To show potential users at large the utility of this project,
+the author of this report is creating a video showing the process of
+installation, ease of setup, adminstration, and the ability to quickly get a
+cloud up and running.  Hopefully this will increase visibility of the project.
+Items to be resolved before graduation:
+	* Generate more publicity for the project.
+	* Develop members of the user community to submit feature
+	  extensions.
