Subject Jackrabbit board report draft
Date Sun, 17 Jun 2007 23:27:37 GMT

Here's a draft of the Jackrabbit board report I plan to send tomorrow
as a part of our normal reporting schedule. Please comment if there's
anything you would like to see added or clarified.


Apache Jackrabbit is a fully conforming implementation of the Content
Repository for Java Technology API (JCR, specified in JSR 170).

The Apache Jackrabbit project is in good shape. We have no board-level
issues at this time.

o Releases

  Apache Jackrabbit 1.3 was released in April.

  We are currently working on the 1.3.1 release, and initial planning
  for a 1.4 release later this year and 2.0 next year has begun.

o Community

  Christophe Lombart was added as a committer and PMC member.

  An object-content mapping tool was successfully moved from the
  incubating Graffito project into a Jackrabbit subproject.

  Jackrabbit received lots of attention in ApacheCon EU where we
  had one tutorial and one normal session on Jackrabbit and JCR.
  A Jackrabbit BOF session also took place, although it ended up
  being quite unstructured.

  We have two Google Summer of Code projects in progress this summer.
  Both projects have been relatively quiet so far, but hopefully we'll
  get them up to speed soon.

  Jacco van Weert has announced a nice JCR Controller tool on the user
  mailing list and is interested in bringing it to Jackrabbit through
  the Apache Incubator.

o Development

  Jackrabbit is being actively developed on a number of fronts. Increasing
  numbers of good patches are coming in, and various technical and
  architectural issues are being actively debated on the mailing lists.

  The public draft of the upcoming JCR 2.0 specification will probably
  be soon released by JSR 283. We are planning to use the public draft
  as the main requirements document when implementing the changes and
  new features required to make Jackrabbit 2.0 the reference
  implementation of JSR 283.
