Board Report, ManifoldCF PMC

ManifoldCF PMC Chair: Karl Wright (
Date: November 2014

Project description

ManifoldCF is an effort to provide an open source framework for connecting
source content repositories like Microsoft Sharepoint and EMC Documentum,
to target repositories or indexes, such as Apache Solr, OpenSearchServer
or ElasticSearch. ManifoldCF also defines a security model for target
that permits them to enforce source-repository security policies.


ManifoldCF graduated from the Apache Incubator on May 16, 2012.  Since
then, there
have been eight major releases, including a 1.7 release on August 24, 2014,
and a
point release 1.7.1 on September 22, 2014.  The next major release is
scheduled for
December 31, 2014.

Committers and PMC membership

The last committer we signed up was Alessandro Benedetti (abenedetti), on
October 10, 2014.

Mailing list activity

Mailing list has been very active, with a wide range of topics.  Most of
our connectors
now have significant use cases and constituencies, and the connector family
continues to grow.  Dev list comments for this period centered around
ManifoldCF 2.0
development, and backwards compatibility issues, as well as voting for the
major 1.7
release.  There were plenty of people looking for integration advice as

Committer and external contributions have been significant this cycle.  I
am unaware
of any mailing-list question that has gone unanswered.

Outstanding issues

None known.


We have reviewed the site branding guidelines and believe we are now
compliant with
these, with the possible exception of (TM) signs in logos from other Apache
that don't have any such marks.  Hopefully we will be able to correct this
