Here is the draft report for July 2016, covering Q2 activity.

Big Data Machine Learning in SQL for Data Scientists.

MADlib has been incubating since 2015-09-15.

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

  1. Continue to produce regular Apache (incubating) releases.
  2. Expand the community, increase dev list activity and add new
  3. Execute and manage the project according to governance model required
by the "Apache Way”.

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