Subject Re: Time for April 2013 Incubator PMC report
Date Wed, 10 Apr 2013 03:17:33 GMT
Hey Chris,

I wrote up a draft report:


Mesos is a cluster manager that provides resource sharing and
isolation across cluster applications.

Mesos has been incubating since 2010-12-23.

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

  1. Improved documentation and support.
  2. Grow community (more developers contributing as the end goal).
  3. Mentor and add additional commit

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be aware of?

We would like to move to git, and have been waiting for, but we've seen no
activity on the ticket as of yet. We've also had a hard time getting
votes for our releases, as before.

How has the community developed since the last report?

We've seen an increase in activity on the mailing list. Airbnb has
been increasingly using Mesos, not only for Chronos, but also for
Hadoop (using our newly written Hadoop framework). There has also been
a production engineering meetup where Mesos was presented:

How has the project developed since the last report?

On top of the usual bug fixes and reliability improvements, we've
implemented resource monitoring to gain visibility into the resource
consumption of executors running in Mesos. We are also much closer to
shipping a feature that allows the slave to upgrade gracefully
(without killing all tasks underneath it).
