[DRAFT] Incubator PMC Board Report - March 2018

John D. Ament-2
All,

Below is the current draft of the Incubator board report.  We are still
missing reports from many podlings, and several missing sign off.  I have
CC'd the podlings missing sign off, and separately notified the ones
missing reports.

John

Incubator PMC report for March 2018

AriaTosca

ARIA TOSCA project offers an easily consumable Software Development Kit(SDK)
and a Command Line Interface(CLI) to implement TOSCA(Topology and
Orchestration Specification of Cloud Applications) based solutions.

AriaTosca has been incubating since 2016-08-27.

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

  1. Grow the community and enroll new committers.
  2. Have (more) frequent Release cycles to be compliant with the Apache
Way.
  3. Grow the project’s contributions from existing community of
contributors

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

1. The project issued its third release (0.2.0) as far as the code is
concerned.  Some considerable functionality has been added since the last
release in addition to a growth in diversity of contributions.

How has the community developed since the last report?

* All project communication now takes place on either the mailing list or
ASF's Slack, and is open for everybody.  We have worked hard to make this
the normal operating mode of the community. There have been some hiccups,
but in general the majority of discourse has taken place on the list.

 * Increased chatter on the mailing list including new subscribers who ask
questions, make suggestions and are likely to become contributors
themselves in the near future.

* Weekly grooming meetings are now attended by the majority of the
community. This is not only a forum to review the weekly work items list,
but also as a place for open discussion about issues, questions as well as
for the community to get to better know each other.


How has the community developed since the last report?

Over the last 3 months we have seen a significant increase in contributions
as well as a few new contributors, particularly from the Ericsson
contingent.


How has the project developed since the last report?

ARIA now has two new patches considerably extend the parser's
plugin/extensions

Website and documentation improvements for usability and to enhance new
user Usability in terms of “getting started” instructions

9 JIRA issues have been resolved since the last report.  Note that the
repository was locked for several weeks during this period due to release
process issues and learning curve.

We will be doing another release during this quarter.

The community has begun to undertake updating AriaTosca to support the
Tosca 1.1 Simple YAML profile.


How would you assess the podling's maturity?

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 got one new active committer.
  After moving the code base under apache/incubator-crail,
  we are re-gaining frequency on downloads and followers
* To advertise the project, we are preparing for the
  SF Spark Summit presentation on Crail.
  We got a presentation on Crail's non-volatile data
  management accepted at OpenFabrics workshop in April.

How has the project developed since the last report?

Daffodil

Apache Daffodil is an implementation of the Data Format Description
Language (DFDL) used to convert between fixed format data and XML/JSON.

Daffodil has been incubating since 2017-08-27.

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

  1. Complete first Apache release as an Incubator
  2. Broaden base of contributors and build the community (e.g. work with
other Apache projects where Daffodil could provide extra functionality)
  3. Improve documentation on setting up a development environment to ease
the addition of new developers

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

- Outstanding legal issue regarding Open Grid Forum document inclusion in
Daffodil (LEGAL-369)

How has the community developed since the last report?

- No new committers. However, we have had activity from a couple outside
users on the mailing lists asking about Daffodil capabilities/usage

How has the project developed since the last report?

- All SGA/CLAs have been submitted (from Tresys, IBM, and NCSA), all code
relicensed to ASF, and package namespace switched to org.apache.daffodil
- Development pace has continued without any notable issues
- The first release candidate was created in February 2018. However, bugs
were found that required an rc2 release. Those issues were resolved, but
issues related to the LICENSE and NOTICE files were raised in the rc2
release vote. This is expected to require an rc3 release, planned to start
voting in early March.

Druid


Druid is a high-performance, column-oriented, distributed data store.

Druid has been incubating since 2018-02-28.

Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
 1. Migrate existing contributors and users to apache mailing lists.
 2. Move the source code and website to apache infrastructure.
 3. Plan and execute our first Apache release.

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
aware of?
* The team is working on the items on the Incubation Checklist.
* We’re working on moving the existing mailing lists, source code, github
issues and website to Apache Infrastructure.
* In order to keep the project momentum up until the migration is complete
we are continuing the development on existing druid repository.
* We are considering doing the 0.12.0 release before migrating source code
to apache, since the IPMC has already voted for it and migrating infra to
apache might take a while, and we don't want to block 0.12.0 on this
migration.

How has the community developed since the last report?
* This is our first board report.
* Current Status of our Github contributors (212), forks (1,516), watchers
 (524) and stars (6,157)

How has the project developed since the last report?
* Creation of Domain name for Druid - DONE
* Creation of Mailing lists - DONE.
* A healthy, constant flow of bug fixes, quality improvements and new
Features are still ongoing on https://github.com/druid-io/druid.

Myriad

Myriad enables co-existence of Apache Hadoop YARN and Apache Mesos together
on
the same cluster and allows dynamic resource allocations across both Hadoop
and other applications running on the same physical data center
infrastructure.

Myriad has been incubating since 2015-03-01.

Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
In this project state the most important action to move towards
graduation is to create traction on the project again. So from my
point of view the list of actions is the following:

[X] Promote the project in social networks, blog entries and so forth
for getting interest again.
[X] Get a few active new users.
[X] Refresh the state of unattended issues reported for interested
users in the pass.

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
aware of?
Only to be informed about new users are willing to boosting up the
project again.

How has the community developed since the last report
The most relevant thing is the activation of mailing list again and a
few new users willing to participate.

How has the project developed since the last report.
The project has not evolved since the last report.

How does the podling rate their own maturity.

PLC4X

PLC4X is a set of libraries for communicating with industrial programmable
logic controllers (PLCs) using a variety of protocols but with a shared API.

PLC4X has been incubating since 2017-12-18.
Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:

  1. Building the community: The PPMC and committer group has a large
     percentage of codecentric employees, we have been recruiting people
     from other companies, but will have to continue these efforts for
     establishing a healthy Apache community.
  2. Onboarding of new committers: With PLC4X several people on the team
     are not very familiar with the Apache Way. We have started and will
     continue our efforts on this onboarding.
  3. Make our first release

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

In order to get access to some of the specifications the ASF will eventually
have to become Members of some external foundations: OPC, EtherCat, Modbus …
these memberships usually have a free level, that allows us to use the
specifications but doesn’t result in any regular costs. We will have to
discuss
these details with the ASF and the other foundations.
One of the external foundations (Profinet) doesn’t have a free membership.
In
general, the CEO of the European branch of the Profinet Foundation has
signaled
that it should be possible for the ASF to become a member and have an
outside
company pay the membership fees, but we have to discuss the details (With
them
as well as the ASF).

How has the community developed since the last report?

Christofer has invested most of his time in February spreading the word
about
PLC4X.
A first POC has been created for the company “Kampf Schneid- und
Wickeltechnik
GmbH & Co. KG”
Two articles for IoT Special editions of German tech magazines have been
submitted. The “JavaSPEKTURM – IoT Sonderheft” is scheduled for sale end or
March, the “iX – IoT Sonderheft” is scheduled later.
The university of Stuttgart has shown great interest in joining our effort,
as
they had just started a project with a similar goal. Chris will continue
on-boarding efforts in March.
At this year’s AALE Conference in Cologne, Chris has talked to a lot of
people
from different German universities. We’re hoping to get at least a hand
full of
them on board too.
We have continuing our onboarding of new Apache committers (extended emails
with a lot of explanations on why we are doing things the way we are)
In the next few months we are expecting to spread the word and hopefully
grow
the community due to the tech magazine articles as well as several talks on
different conferences.

How has the project developed since the last report?

The work on the RawSocket Netty transport which is a requirement to
implement
protocols that are IP based, but are not TCP or UDP has continued and we are
currently waiting for infra to setup a dedicated Jenkins VM for our project
so
we can enable the RawSocket releated tests.
We have finished a first version of the Beckhoff ADS driver, and are looking
forward to first tests with this.
The functionality of the S7 driver has improved due to experience collected
with the Kampf POC.
Next we are aiming to implement Modbus and OPC-UA protocols.

How would you assess the podling's maturity?
Please feel free to add your own commentary.

We have a mix of new participants and experienced Apache people involved.
So far, the new participants have shown great willingness and success in
adopting the Apache Way.
However, we still need to continue:
the on-boarding
increasing the diversity of the team
Also, will we need to decide and establish all the processes involved in
releasing software at Apache

  2. Complete the Podling name search tasks

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 added 6 new contributors that submitted pull-requests
  which were merged into master.

  There has been a sharp increase in users approaching the team on the
Slack channel with many questions on getting started, clarifications,
troubleshooting.
  While developers use Slack for informal chatting, the predominant usage
of Slack has be users support. We have created a tool to create daily email
digests of the
  conversation and post it on dev@ and user@ lists, to comply with ASF
policy of. We are also extracting the most recurrent questions/answer from
Slack and plan to add an
  FAQ section on the website, together with improving documentation in the
areas that seemed more difficult to users.

  Project members from several companies have organized or participated in
several meetups, presenting Pulsar's introductions, deep-dives and hands-on
tutorial, including
  recorded podcasts. We have several scheduled talks on Pulsar at various
conferences (such as Strata San Jose on March 8th).


How has the project developed since the last report?

  22 authors have pushed 536 commits to master in the last 3 months.

  The project has made the its third and fourth releases since joining the
Apache
  Incubator (1.21.0-incubating on Dec 17th and 1.22.0-incubating on Mar
6th).
  Project members are actively working on next milestone, 2.0 release that
will
  include several new features including:
   * Topic compaction
   * Redesigned type-safe API with schema support
   * Lightweight compute support

  Overall, since December, 7 new PIPs (Pulsar Improvement Proposals) for
major
  feature/changes, have been submitted to the wiki and discussed in the
mailing list.

  Since the last report the number of weekly-active-users on the Slack
channel has
  increased from 27 to 53.

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.

Most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
  Since new development on one of Slider's primary maven modules has
  moved to the hadoop-yarn-services-core module in Apache Hadoop,
  development of other Slider modules has also tailed off. The Slider
  community needs to decide whether we should retire the remaining
  Slider code or propose graduation.

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

  No additional issues.

How has the community developed since the last report?

  Mailing list and commit activity have continued at a low rate. We invited
  a new committer / PPMC member, Kyungwan Nam.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  An improvement to allow Slider to work in multi-homed environments is
  in progress and we have fixed a couple of bugs related to certificate
  management and functional test failures when running on newer versions
  of Hadoop.

How would you assess the podling's maturity?
The podling is relatively mature, but activity is low.

I have been quite impressed by the uptick since New Year, which shows how
just a bit of PMC engagement can give lots of follow-on activitity. I would
hope Taverna can continue this move out of the "risk of retire" zone, but
that requires more PMC members to chip in now and then.

Hi John -

I did my mentor signoffs.

All,

Below is the current draft of the Incubator board report.  We are still
missing reports from many podlings, and several missing sign off.  I have

Incubator PMC report for March 2018

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 54 podlings under incubation.  We added 1 new IPMC
member, 3 new podlings and executed on 4 releases.  The HTrace report
indicates retirement in flight.

I think some discussion will be needed with HTrace as AFAIK - Podlings
typically aren't allowed to retire to the Attic.


https://incubator.apache.org/projects/#retired indicates that podlings do
retire? If not to the attic, then where?


Regards,
Dave

Hi all

Much has changed in the report, in the sign off area.  Hivemall and Singa
are missing sign off, please get to that.  I plan to submit the report to
the board Saturday morning (my time).
