Subject [lucy-dev] April 2012 board report
Date Mon, 09 Apr 2012 20:21:39 GMT

Here's a proposed draft for the first report to the ASF Board of Directors on
the newly established Apache Lucy project.

The next board meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, April 18th.  Reports have
been trickling into the board@a.o list for the past week or so.  I believe
that the hard deadline is 72 hours before the meeting when the agenda is
frozen, but as the guidelines indicate that reports should be filed "well in
advance", it seems to me that the PMC chair should seek to file a week or more
before the meeting.

Here are the guidelines for project board reports:

If anyone is interested in seeing how other TLP reports look (note that
fidelity to the guidelines varies significantly) check out the minutes of past
board meetings:

Lastly, note that this is technically our PMC chair's report, not the PMC's
(so we don't vote on it):

  Quarterly report to Board.

  The schedule is listed in committee-info.txt along with the procedure.  If
  there are issues requiring board assistance, then make that apparent,
  separate from any general project news.  The report is mainly about the
  status of the project, together with any community and legal issues or other
  general impediments.  You can seek input from your PMC, but it is mainly
  your report to the board.  The chair does not report to the PMC. The chair
  reports to the board (i.e. ultimately to the ASF membership).  The reporting
  page describes what the reports should contain.  Look at Board Meetings and
  Calendar for examples of past PMC reports and to find out when the next
  meetings are due.
