I've checked in a version of this into the repository.  If I don't get comments/revisions tomorrow,
I'll put it on the wiki.

2009-July 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.

Development activities have included adding a locality and layout service, 
integrating metrics into ganglia for monitoring, more complicated network 
isolation support, and preliminary code for the purpose of communicating with
Maui, a cluster scheduler.  Additionally, the documentation has been enhanced 
on the project webpage.

The project is still struggling to grow a substantial user community, but there 
are several active contributors.  We are looking forward to the opportunity to 
present our work with PRS and Hadoop at SC'09 [1].

Items to be resolved before graduation:
        * Prepare and review a release candidate
        * Develop community diversity (currently Intel and CMU committers)

Subject: July podling incubator board reports


The Apache board meets at its earliest time this month (July 15), so  
the incubator reports are due this Wednesday July 8 (one week before  
the board meeting).

One measure of readiness for graduation is the ability to create  
reports for the board. (This is not optional...)

If no volunteers by Tuesday, I'll throw something together for the
