Subject Re: Incubator PMC/Board report for Mar 2013 ([ppmc])
Date Fri, 15 Mar 2013 19:15:52 GMT
If someone else could edit the wiki (I can't, I haven't got edit
access to the wiki), then here is a report until Michael/anybody else
edits/replaces it.

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

  1. Make a release (stalled).
The licensing issues have been resolved, and build scripts have been
put into the repository. Documentation (see 2) is missing, after which
point we can finalize a commit suitable for release.
  2. Improve documentation.
This is currently scattered between the old WaveProtocol site, the
mailing list, and elsewhere. It needs to be pruned (of no-longer
relevant documentation), structured and put on the wiki.
  3. Increase community size.
We are lacking any contributors who are able to make/support large
code changes at the moment. A release should help increase wider
knowledge of the project, to hopefully bring in more development

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be aware of?
None at this time. (Though see Shepard's notes).

How has the community developed since the last report?
The mailing list traffic continues to consist of new people asking
questions about setting-up/running a WIAB server. (Which could be
resolved by #2). Other than that, mostly stagnation.

How has the project developed since the last report?
Some progress towards a release (licensing) has been made.
Internationalization support has been added.
