[DRAFT] Incubator PMC Board Report - August 2017

John D. Ament-2
All,

Below please find the report in draft.  There are 4 podlings not reporting
thus far, and six podlings missing sign off.  Please review at your
earliest convenience.  I have CC'd the ten podlings.

Incubator PMC report for August 2017

The Apache Incubator is the entry path into the ASF for projects and
codebases wishing to become part of the Foundation's efforts.

July was a quieter month for the incubator, summer holidays and what not.
We executed seven podling releases this month, one podling retired but
otherwise no other changes.

* Community

  New IPMC members:

  - None

  People who left the IPMC:

  - None

* New Podlings

  - None

* Podlings that failed to report, expected next month

  - MRQL
  - Ratis
  - Slider
  - Unomi

* Podlings missing sign off, will be moved to failed to report

  - Guacamole
  - Impala
  - iota
  - Netbeans
  - S2Graph
  - Superset

* Graduations

  The board has motions for the following:

  - None

* Retirements

  The following podlings retired this month:

  - HORN

* Releases

  The following releases entered distribution during the month of
  July:

  - 2017-07-06 Apache Gearpump 0.8.4
  - 2017-07-06 Apaceh Traffic Control 2.0.0
  - 2017-07-08 Apache Aria Tosca 0.1.0
  - 2017-07-11 Apahce HAWQ 2.2.0.0
  - 2017-07-18 Apache Griffin 0.1.5
  - 2017-07-18 Apache Aria Tosca 0.1.1
  - 2017-07-31 Apache Guacamole 0.9.13


* IP Clearance

  - We have begun work to clean up IP Clearance policies.  First is to make
it clear that the preference is ICLAs and CCLAs over SGAs.  We have also
seen better responsiveness after reasserting that the IPMC owns
responsibility for all incoming code donations.

* Legal / Trademarks



* Infrastructure



* Miscellaneous

  - A general issue of VPs within other cross functional areas of the ASF
reaching out to podlings has started to surface.  Specifically, I would
like to request that the board supports a request that those areas should
be reaching out to podlings directly with issues, escalating to the IPMC
due to lack of follow through, rather than approaching the IPMC first.  The
Security team's model is a perfect example of what to do.

BatchEE

BatchEE projects aims to provide a JBatch implementation (aka JSR352) and a
set of useful extensions for this specification.

BatchEE has been incubating since 2013-10-03.

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

  1. Increase the community probably?
  2. -
  3. -

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

No

How has the community developed since the last report?

Not much as expected being in between "spec" releases.

How has the project developed since the last report?

BatchEE is quite stable and therefore should probably head to graduation
soon.

How would you assess the podling's maturity?

IPMC/Shepherd notes:
team-list.html - this page shows no members or committers.
I checked private and it looks like the last committer/ppmc add was in Dec
2015.
User ML had questions from only one person at two different times in 2015.
There is activity and it looks like a new release may happen soon.

--------------------
DataFu

DataFu provides a collection of Hadoop MapReduce jobs and functions in
higher
level languages based on it to perform data analysis. It provides functions
for common statistics tasks (e.g. quantiles, sampling), PageRank, stream
sessionization, and set and bag operations. DataFu also provides Hadoop jobs
for incremental data processing in MapReduce.

DataFu has been incubating since 2014-01-05.

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

  1. Positive IPMC recommendation vote for graduation
  2. Address any IPMC feedback regarding graduation
  3. Continue releases

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

  None

How has the community developed since the last report?

* Community voted positively for graduation from Incubator.
* New contributor opened and fixed DATAFU-124

How has the project developed since the last report?

* Completed maturity evaluation checklist
  (https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/DATAFU/Maturity+Evaluation)
* Drafted a graduation resolution

IPMC/Shepherd notes:
Project is ready to graduate. I noticed a problem with their answer to QU30
on the Maturity model.
It was in part a documentation issue. Raised it with the project and they
are addressing the way that
they are asking for security issues. Raised the documentation issue with
ComDev and we fixed it.

--------------------
Edgent

Apache Edgent is a programming SDK and micro-kernel style runtime
that can be embedded in gateways and small footprint edge devices enabling
local, real-time, analytics on the continuous streams of data coming
from equipment, vehicles, systems, appliances, devices and sensors of
all kinds (for example, Raspberry Pis or smart phones). Working in
conjunction with centralized analytic systems, Apache Edgent provides
efficient and timely analytics across the whole IoT ecosystem: from the
center to the edge.

Edgent has been incubating since 2016-02-29.

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

  1. Create and expand a diverse community of contributors and committers
     around the Edgent project.
  2. Attracting at least another independent committer/ppmc member.
  3. Finding further real world users of Edgent

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

  No

How has the community developed since the last report?

    * Total, we have 70 subscribers to our mailing list, an improvement
        of 5 since the last report.
        * We have had a noticeable increase in the number of
information-seeking
        emails on the mailing list from new Edgent developers.
        * A San Francisco meetup has been scheduled for the 20th of
September
    to demonstrate an Edgent video analytics application which was
        initially presented at ApacheCon 2017 (Video Analytics at the Edge:
        Fun with Apache Edgent, OpenCV and a Raspberry Pi).
        * In addition to Chris Dutz, we have had one non-committer PR
merged.


How has the project developed since the last report?

  * With the contributions of Christoper Dutz and Dale LaBossiere, the
        Edgent build system is undergoing an overhaul to Maven from Gradle.
        Maven provides benefits over Gradle, including a more rigid build
        structure, and the Maven package system.
  * According to JIRA, 13 new issues were added to the project and 6
    issues have been resolved or closed between May 2017 and August 2017.

How would you assess the podling's maturity?
Edgent is making slow but consistent progress towards graduation. While we
don't yet meet the diversity requirements, we put emphasis on community
growth through outreach which will ultimately pave the way for additional
committers and contributors.

Additionally, before we graduate it is important that we find users
outside of IBM. As most Edgent committers are employed by IBM, external
stakeholders help ensure long term contribution to the project.

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

  1. Cut our first release

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

  None

How has the community developed since the last report?

  We are very first steps of the project

How has the project developed since the last report?

* Issues has been migrated to Apache Jira Infra
* Site infrastructure has been created (now working on imported the content)
* Discussion on setup Jenkins build

How would you assess the podling's maturity?

The podling is still on early stage. But a lot of progress and activities
has been made recently.

Impala

Impala is a high-performance C++ and Java SQL query engine for data stored
in
Apache Hadoop-based clusters.

Impala has been incubating since 2015-12-03.

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

 1. Growth of the developer community
 2.
 3.

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

 No

How has the community developed since the last report?

 There have been 268 Commits:
   git log --format='%ci' | grep -cE '2017-0(5|6|7)'

 51 of those commits were by non-committers:
   git log --format='%ae %ci' | grep -E '2017-0(5|6|7)' | cut -d ' ' -f 1 |
sort | uniq -c | sort -n

 There are two new PPMC members:

https://lists.apache.org/list.html?dev@...:dfr=2017-2-1|dto=2017-4-30:%22has%20invited%22

Impala has done a third release with a second release manager. Two CVEs
were issued, our first ones under the Apache security guidelines.

How has the project developed since the last report?

There have been big changes to the buffer pool, as outlined in
https://lists.apache.org/thread.html/f573698455bf2ff9ac2073c778802d0d5c9f3c8be43ede80614259cb@%3Cdev.impala.apache.org%3E
. There have also been big changes landing to the RPC layer to improve
scalability. Impala now has TABLESAMPLE to allow running queries on only a
small percentage of the table for experimenting with queries quickly, and
it now works on ADLS.

iota

Open source system that enables the orchestration of IoT devices.

iota has been incubating since 2016-01-20.

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

1. An initial release of iota
2. Building a more active community
3. Consistency in the discussions on mailing lists/ steady flow of source
code
contributions

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

None

How has the community developed since the last report?

@crostofolini and @rafaelweingartner are working on integrating the
Spring framework into iota (pull request 35)

We are waiting on a jar file to be removed from the test suit so that
an initial release of the software can be produced. (The jar file is
related to
iota tests - need committer to publish the source code - enabling us to
remove the
jar artifact enabling the initial release of the software).

The initial release will proceed without the Spring Framework
Integration. We will add this in a future release.

Ticket's are in place for the initial release.

How has the project developed since the last report?

Interest in using iota (including the Spring Framework) outside the
committer group

The email reflectors for dev and users have become more active.

New functionality was added to iota - global performers.

Joshua

Joshua is a statistical machine translation toolkit

Joshua has been incubating since 2016-02-13.

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

 1. Make another Apache Joshua incubating release.
 2. Identifying specific use cases that we might excel at.
 3. Attracting active developers and users.

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

None

How has the community developed since the last report?

The community mailing lists have seen a few new users.
Questions have been answered in reasonable time. Community
building is probably the biggest challenge for Joshua right
now.
Tommaso Teofili and Suneel Marthi, presented 'Embracing Diversity:
Searching Over multiple languages' on June 12, 2017 at Berlin Buzzwords,
Berlin - demonstrating machine translation using Apache Joshua.

How has the project developed since the last report?

Apache Joshua 6.1 (Incubating) was released, which is the first
Apache release for Joshua. The community is actively discussing
the roadmap and where Joshua should be in the near future.

     Comments:
        The release was well organized and delivered thanks to Lewis and
Tommaso, it feels to me like the Joshua developers need to be a little more
proactive. As the report points out, community building is the biggest
issue, I'm going to spend some time in the near future working with the
PPMC to see what integrations, tutorials and demos we can do to drive
developers and adoption which will hopefully expand the community.

NetBeans

NetBeans is a development environment, tooling platform and application
framework.

NetBeans has been incubating since 2016-10-01.

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

  1. Legal process to hand over code. Still pending and frustrating to all
concerned.
  2. Possibility that NetBeans 1st donation will not be done in time to
release together with JDK 9.
  3. Slowness/thoroughness of the process of handing over code from Oracle.

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

The process will take time.

How has the community developed since the last report?

Various discussions about specific plugins, etc, and about the logo and
website.

How has the project developed since the last report?

Progress is being made on the Oracle side, the progress is continual, but

Superset

Superset is an enterprise-ready web application for data exploration, data
visualization and dashboarding.

Superset has been incubating since 2017-05-21.

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

  1. Grow the community and enroll new committers.
  2. Plan and execute our first Apache release
  3. Address the challenge that React is no longer allowed in Apache

* Superset is heavily reliant upon React, however eact has the same patent
clause as RocksDB, which ASF had condoned use of until RocksDB backtracked
and removed that clause. Our team is concerned about the implications and
we are looking for guidance (https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-320
)

Podlings who don't receive mentor sign off get moved to the non-reporting
section, expected to report next month.  This isn't new, but I am calling
it out explicitly.  It is rare that mentors don't sign off.

Re: [DRAFT] Incubator PMC Board Report - August 2017

John D. Ament-2
In reply to this post by John D. Ament-2
All,

Please find the current draft below.  I'll be submitting end of day
tomorrow assuming no issues, moving the remaining 2 podlings to
non-reporting (Guacamole & S2Graph).

Incubator PMC report for August 2017

The Apache Incubator is the entry path into the ASF for projects and
codebases wishing to become part of the Foundation's efforts.

There are currently 53 podlings incubating.  July was a quieter month for
the incubator, summer holidays and what not.  We executed seven podling
releases this month, one podling retired but otherwise no other changes.

* Community

  New IPMC members:

  - None

  People who left the IPMC:

  - None

* New Podlings

  - None

* Podlings that failed to report, expected next month

  - MRQL
  - Ratis

* Podlings missing sign off, will be moved to failed to report

  - Guacamole
  - S2Graph

* Graduations

  The board has motions for the following:

  - None

* Retirements

  The following podlings retired this month:

  - HORN

* Releases

  The following releases entered distribution during the month of
  July:

  - 2017-07-06 Apache Gearpump 0.8.4
  - 2017-07-06 Apaceh Traffic Control 2.0.0
  - 2017-07-08 Apache Aria Tosca 0.1.0
  - 2017-07-11 Apahce HAWQ 2.2.0.0
  - 2017-07-18 Apache Griffin 0.1.5
  - 2017-07-18 Apache Aria Tosca 0.1.1
  - 2017-07-31 Apache Guacamole 0.9.13


* IP Clearance

  - We have begun work to clean up IP Clearance policies.  First is to make
it clear that the preference is ICLAs and CCLAs over SGAs.  We have also
seen better responsiveness after reasserting that the IPMC owns
responsibility for all incoming code donations.

* Legal / Trademarks



* Infrastructure



* Miscellaneous

  - A general issue of VPs within other cross functional areas of the ASF
reaching out to podlings has started to surface.  Specifically, I would
like to request that the board supports a request that those areas should
be reaching out to podlings directly with issues, escalating to the IPMC
due to lack of follow through, rather than approaching the IPMC first.  The
Security team's model is a perfect example of what to do.

BatchEE

BatchEE projects aims to provide a JBatch implementation (aka JSR352) and a
set of useful extensions for this specification.

BatchEE has been incubating since 2013-10-03.

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

  1. Increase the community probably?
  2. -
  3. -

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

No

How has the community developed since the last report?

Not much as expected being in between "spec" releases.

How has the project developed since the last report?

BatchEE is quite stable and therefore should probably head to graduation
soon.

How would you assess the podling's maturity?

     It seems we had some confusion with the LDAP when we added rsandtner
as committer.
     We need to scan our mailing lists and check what is missing on the
official status page.

IPMC/Shepherd notes:
team-list.html - this page shows no members or committers.
I checked private and it looks like the last committer/ppmc add was in Dec
2015.
User ML had questions from only one person at two different times in 2015.
There is activity and it looks like a new release may happen soon.

sessionization, and set and bag operations. DataFu also provides Hadoop jobs
for incremental data processing in MapReduce.

DataFu has been incubating since 2014-01-05.

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

  1. Positive IPMC recommendation vote for graduation
  2. Address any IPMC feedback regarding graduation
  3. Continue releases

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

  None

How has the community developed since the last report?

* Community voted positively for graduation from Incubator.

IPMC/Shepherd notes:
Project is ready to graduate. I noticed a problem with their answer to QU30
on the Maturity model.
It was in part a documentation issue. Raised it with the project and they
are addressing the way that
they are asking for security issues. Raised the documentation issue with
ComDev and we fixed it.

Edgent

Apache Edgent is a programming SDK and micro-kernel style runtime
that can be embedded in gateways and small footprint edge devices enabling
local, real-time, analytics on the continuous streams of data coming
from equipment, vehicles, systems, appliances, devices and sensors of
all kinds (for example, Raspberry Pis or smart phones). Working in
conjunction with centralized analytic systems, Apache Edgent provides
efficient and timely analytics across the whole IoT ecosystem: from the
center to the edge.

Edgent has been incubating since 2016-02-29.

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

  1. Create and expand a diverse community of contributors and committers
     around the Edgent project.
  2. Attracting at least another independent committer/ppmc member.
  3. Finding further real world users of Edgent

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

  No

How has the community developed since the last report?

    * Total, we have 70 subscribers to our mailing list, an improvement
        of 5 since the last report.
        * We have had a noticeable increase in the number of
information-seeking
        emails on the mailing list from new Edgent developers.
        * A San Francisco meetup has been scheduled for the 20th of
September
    to demonstrate an Edgent video analytics application which was
        initially presented at ApacheCon 2017 (Video Analytics at the Edge:
        Fun with Apache Edgent, OpenCV and a Raspberry Pi).
        * In addition to Chris Dutz, we have had one non-committer PR
merged.


How has the project developed since the last report?

  * With the contributions of Christoper Dutz and Dale LaBossiere, the
        Edgent build system is undergoing an overhaul to Maven from Gradle.
        Maven provides benefits over Gradle, including a more rigid build
        structure, and the Maven package system.
  * According to JIRA, 13 new issues were added to the project and 6
    issues have been resolved or closed between May 2017 and August 2017.

How would you assess the podling's maturity?
Edgent is making slow but consistent progress towards graduation. While we
don't yet meet the diversity requirements, we put emphasis on community
growth through outreach which will ultimately pave the way for additional
committers and contributors.

Additionally, before we graduate it is important that we find users
outside of IBM. As most Edgent committers are employed by IBM, external
stakeholders help ensure long term contribution to the project.

Impala

Impala is a high-performance C++ and Java SQL query engine for data stored
in
Apache Hadoop-based clusters.

Impala has been incubating since 2015-12-03.

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

 1. Growth of the developer community
 2.
 3.

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

 No

How has the community developed since the last report?

 There have been 268 Commits:
   git log --format='%ci' | grep -cE '2017-0(5|6|7)'

 51 of those commits were by non-committers:
   git log --format='%ae %ci' | grep -E '2017-0(5|6|7)' | cut -d ' ' -f 1 |
sort | uniq -c | sort -n

 There are two new PPMC members:

https://lists.apache.org/list.html?dev@...:dfr=2017-2-1|dto=2017-4-30:%22has%20invited%22

Impala has done a third release with a second release manager. Two CVEs
were issued, our first ones under the Apache security guidelines.

How has the project developed since the last report?

There have been big changes to the buffer pool, as outlined in
https://lists.apache.org/thread.html/f573698455bf2ff9ac2073c778802d0d5c9f3c8be43ede80614259cb@%3Cdev.impala.apache.org%3E
. There have also been big changes landing to the RPC layer to improve
scalability. Impala now has TABLESAMPLE to allow running queries on only a
small percentage of the table for experimenting with queries quickly, and
it now works on ADLS.

How would you assess the podling's maturity?

iota

Open source system that enables the orchestration of IoT devices.

iota has been incubating since 2016-01-20.

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

1. An initial release of iota
2. Building a more active community
3. Consistency in the discussions on mailing lists/ steady flow of source
code
contributions

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

None

How has the community developed since the last report?

@crostofolini and @rafaelweingartner are working on integrating the
Spring framework into iota (pull request 35)

We are waiting on a jar file to be removed from the test suit so that
an initial release of the software can be produced. (The jar file is
related to
iota tests - need committer to publish the source code - enabling us to
remove the
jar artifact enabling the initial release of the software).

The initial release will proceed without the Spring Framework
Integration. We will add this in a future release.

Ticket's are in place for the initial release.

How has the project developed since the last report?

Interest in using iota (including the Spring Framework) outside the
committer group

The email reflectors for dev and users have become more active.

New functionality was added to iota - global performers.

Joshua

Joshua is a statistical machine translation toolkit

Joshua has been incubating since 2016-02-13.

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

 1. Make another Apache Joshua incubating release.
 2. Identifying specific use cases that we might excel at.
 3. Attracting active developers and users.

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

None

How has the community developed since the last report?

The community mailing lists have seen a few new users.
Questions have been answered in reasonable time. Community
building is probably the biggest challenge for Joshua right
now.
Tommaso Teofili and Suneel Marthi, presented 'Embracing Diversity:
Searching Over multiple languages' on June 12, 2017 at Berlin Buzzwords,
Berlin - demonstrating machine translation using Apache Joshua.

How has the project developed since the last report?

Apache Joshua 6.1 (Incubating) was released, which is the first

  [X](joshua) Tom Barber
     Comments:
        The release was well organized and delivered thanks to Lewis and
Tommaso, it feels to me like the Joshua developers need to be a little more
proactive. As the report points out, community building is the biggest
issue, I'm going to spend some time in the near future working with the
PPMC to see what integrations, tutorials and demos we can do to drive
developers and adoption which will hopefully expand the community.

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

  1. Legal process to hand over code. Still pending and frustrating to all
concerned.
  2. Possibility that NetBeans 1st donation will not be done in time to
release together with JDK 9.
  3. Slowness/thoroughness of the process of handing over code from Oracle.

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

The process will take time.

Slider

Slider is a collection of tools and technologies to package, deploy, and
manage long running applications on Apache Hadoop YARN clusters.

Slider has been incubating since 2014-04-29.

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

 1. Apache Slider community/PPMC has voted to move portions of Slider into
    Apache Hadoop YARN as modules. It is possible that the remaining pieces
    will be moved at a later point in time or become obsolete or evolve to
    work closely with YARN. Slider PPMC will decide what makes the most
    sense as we progress through this exciting time.

 2. Getting more external users

 3. Growth of a diverse set of developers/committers/PMC members is also
    crucial towards the final state of Slider

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

 No.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 Mailing list activity has been lower due to the bulk of the development
 moving to an Apache Hadoop branch. Questions on usage and issues
 encountered by end users keep coming at regular intervals, keeping the DL
 fairly active.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 Work continues in parallel on the Apache Hadoop yarn-native-services
 branch and on the Slider podling. The bulk of the work has been in
 yarn-native-services, while a few Slider patches (related to critical
 issues or agent-only issues) have been committed as well.

periodic dev-list updates demonstrating the current progress in this
process.

IPMC/Shepherd notes:

  johndament: Based on the description, as well as the little bit of
information I've been able to get out of the Slider community, it seems
that while there is a Slider community they're not actively working on
Slider's codebase.  My recommendation is probably to retire the Slider
community if they cannot be absorbed into the Hadoop TLP.

Superset

Superset is an enterprise-ready web application for data exploration, data
visualization and dashboarding.

Superset has been incubating since 2017-05-21.

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

  1. Grow the community and enroll new committers.
  2. Plan and execute our first Apache release
  3. Address the challenge that React is no longer allowed in Apache
projects

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
aware of?
* Superset is heavily reliant upon React, however React has the same patent
clause as RocksDB, which ASF had condoned use of until RocksDB backtracked
and removed that clause. Our team is concerned about the implications and
we are looking for guidance (https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-320
)
* The team is working on finishing up all the items on the Incubation
Checklist.


How has the community developed since the last report?
* Organic growth of our Github contributors (148), forks (2,153), watchers
  (770) and stars (15,075)

How has the project developed since the last report?
* The code repository now lives at
https://github.com/apache/incubator-superset on Apache’s infrastructure
* We have migrated the project website to the Apache website:
http://superset.apache.org/

Unomi

Unomi is a reference implementation of the OASIS Context Server
specification
currently being worked on by the OASIS Context Server Technical Committee.
It
provides a high-performance user profile and event tracking server.

Unomi has been incubating since 2015-10-05.

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

  1. During the three last months, we did bunch of bug fixes and we are
preparing new maintenance release. We also working on a feature branch with
major dependencies update (Apache Karaf 4, ...) and refactoring on some
Unomi internals (like the tags).
  2. If we did good improvements on the user community front, we would like
to increase the developer community and see more contributions.

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

  None

How has the community developed since the last report?

  The user community grew up (according messages and feedback we go). We
think that we are getting close to graduation and we will define an action
plan with the topics to address for this.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  We are still preparing 1.2.0-incubating
  release including more bug fixes.

  We also started a 2.0.0-incubating branch with major dependencies update
(Apache Karaf 4.x, Elasticsearch 5.x, ...) and refactoring of some
internals.

In addition, their website continues to use the old incubator logo.  On the
flip side, activity is high on the mailing lists so I'm a bit surprised it
took extra effort to get a report submitted.  Keep up the activity levels.

> Edgent
>
> Apache Edgent is a programming SDK and micro-kernel style runtime
> that can be embedded in gateways and small footprint edge devices enabling
> local, real-time, analytics on the continuous streams of data coming
> from equipment, vehicles, systems, appliances, devices and sensors of
> all kinds (for example, Raspberry Pis or smart phones). Working in
> conjunction with centralized analytic systems, Apache Edgent provides
> efficient and timely analytics across the whole IoT ecosystem: from the
> center to the edge.
>
> Edgent has been incubating since 2016-02-29.
>
> Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
>
>  1. Create and expand a diverse community of contributors and committers
>     around the Edgent project.
>  2. Attracting at least another independent committer/ppmc member.
>  3. Finding further real world users of Edgent
>
> Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
> aware of?
>
>  No
>
> How has the community developed since the last report?
>
>    * Total, we have 70 subscribers to our mailing list, an improvement
>        of 5 since the last report.
>        * We have had a noticeable increase in the number of
> information-seeking
>        emails on the mailing list from new Edgent developers.
>        * A San Francisco meetup has been scheduled for the 20th of
> September
>    to demonstrate an Edgent video analytics application which was
>        initially presented at ApacheCon 2017 (Video Analytics at the Edge:
>        Fun with Apache Edgent, OpenCV and a Raspberry Pi).
>        * In addition to Chris Dutz, we have had one non-committer PR
> merged.
>
>
> How has the project developed since the last report?
>
>  * With the contributions of Christoper Dutz and Dale LaBossiere, the
>        Edgent build system is undergoing an overhaul to Maven from Gradle.
>        Maven provides benefits over Gradle, including a more rigid build
>        structure, and the Maven package system.
>  * According to JIRA, 13 new issues were added to the project and 6
>    issues have been resolved or closed between May 2017 and August 2017.
>
> How would you assess the podling's maturity?
> Edgent is making slow but consistent progress towards graduation. While we
> don't yet meet the diversity requirements, we put emphasis on community
> growth through outreach which will ultimately pave the way for additional
> committers and contributors.
>
> Additionally, before we graduate it is important that we find users
> outside of IBM. As most Edgent committers are employed by IBM, external
> stakeholders help ensure long term contribution to the project.
