Subject Re: Podling Report Reminder - June 2016
Date Mon, 30 May 2016 22:24:27 GMT
Sorry about the delay.. bank holiday weekend in the UK - for once with
lovely weather!

Draft report added to https://wiki.apache.org/incubator/June2016
(not May2016)

Comments welcome below, or as changes in the incubator wiki.


Taverna is a domain-independent suite of tools used to design and execute
data-driven workflows.

Taverna has been incubating since 2014-10-20.

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

  1. Project maturity evaluation

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

  ASF guidance on US export ECCN cryptography registration
  has not yet been updated for the 2010 rule changes, confusion
  around this classification caused Taverna delays.

  Many registrations on https://www.apache.org/licenses/exports/ are
  outdated (e.g. graduated podlings and 404 source repos),
  these need to be updated by each PMC - see

How has the community developed since the last report?

  Two GSOC students now active. The third applicant accepted
  with Apache Mifos instead - but is still in touch and willing
  to help a fourth student who volunteered to contribute independently.
  Another student willing to contribute a new plugin.

  A total of four ICLAs registered - however these students need
  further encouragement and guidance to submit regular pull requests.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  Preparations for release of the main workflow engine has had focus,
  including build stability across platforms,
  documentation update and US Export classifications of
  encryption items (which caused some delays).

  Taverna Engine/Command Line Release candidate now under vote.

  Traffic on users@ show interest mainly on Taverna Server, so
  this component should probably be the development
  focus after GSOC.

Date of last release:

  2016-03-11 taverna-osgi-0.2.1-incubating
  2016-03-11 taverna-language-0.15.1-incubating

  Release Candidates under vote:
  taverna-engine, taverna-common-activities, taverna-commandline

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?
