Subject Draft MADlib podling report for Oct 2016
Date Mon, 03 Oct 2016 23:31:33 GMT
Here is the draft report for Oct 2016, covering Q3 activity.

It is posted at

Please let me know if you have any comments or suggestions before
submission deadline on Wed Oct 5 and I will update the report.




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. Need guidance from Incubator PMC on how to resolve the BSD licensing
switch over to Apache License.  What should be the content of the license
headers for files that were previously BSD licensed and then granted to
ASF?  Related legal-discuss threads:
  2. Continue to produce regular Apache (incubating) releases.
  3. Continue to 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

 Yes-please see #1 above and provide guidance.
