Subject Draft for the september board report
Date Sun, 14 Sep 2008 09:15:22 GMT

See below for a draft of the Jackrabbit board report that I plan to
submit later today.

Note that the Google Analytics issue is something I've been pursuing
on prc@ and legal-discuss@. Some questions have been raised about
whether the Analytics terms of service are appropriate for an Apache
project, how the service should be used, and who should have access to
the gathered data. Since we already use Google Analytics, I've been
somewhat active in trying to resolve those issues.

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

  No releases were made since the last report.

o Legal

  We are using Google Analytics to track usage of our web site. We are trying
  to resolve the recent concerns about the appropriateness of the terms of
  service for an Apache open source project.

o Community

  No new committers or PMC members were added since the last report.

  There has been a drop in mailing list and commit activity in the past
  quarter and we've seen some cases of issues or questions being dropped.
  This is partly because of the summer vacations but also due to a number
  of core committers having been otherwise occupied. We'll keep an eye on
  the situation and hope for things to normalize soon enough.

  We will participate and present Apache Jackrabbit in the upcoming
  ApacheCon US.

o Development

  We keep working towards Jackrabbit 1.5 in near future and Jackrabbit 2.0
  (and the JSR 283 reference implementation) later on.

o Infrastructure

  No issues.
