Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Apache Maturity Model Assessment
Date Thu, 26 Jan 2017 18:06:04 GMT
Happy 2017 Streams committers and well-wishers.

For those unfamiliar, the Apache Maturity Model Assessment is a essentially a checklist
assessment of project health based on many of the principles of the Apache Software Foundation.
http://community.apache.org/apache-way/apache-project-maturity-model.html

I’ve started an AMMA for Streams here:
https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/STREAMS/Apache+Maturity+Model+Assessment+for+Streams

All in all, Streams already stacks up pretty well against the ~35 items on the AMMA. There
are some gaps - and opportunities to improve of course.

I think we have reached the point where the project can make a strong case to graduate to
TLP, following a concerted effort to address the gaps that remain. 

So my ask to everyone is:
 - review and bookmark the Streams AMMA doc in confluence.
 - confirm that you have edit or at least comment privileges.  let me know if you don’t.
 - prepare and share notes on any areas of concern to you personally
 - identify and share specific ideas that we could act on to improve our score on any items,
especially those where we are falling short of a definitive YES.

Personally I want to see the project achieve TLP status prior to ApacheCon NA 2017, after
one more major release.

I will respond personally to any feedback on this and future related threads, and reach out
to the list regarding our progress about once a week from here on out to push us forward.

Thanks in advance for your support.

Steve

I think all of the changes that have merged are suitable for a minor release. There were changes
made to the facebook module translations, but those had fallen out of sync with the provider
to the point that documents coming out of the 0.4 release providers were missing a ton of
useful informaton.  So i think we can make an exception to the a general preference to not
change data schemas in a non-backwards compatible way in a minor release.
