Subject Incubator Board Report, June 2006
Date Tue, 27 Jun 2006 02:13:35 GMT
A relatively quiet month on the Incubator front.

Projects continue to settle into the task of Incubation.  We are currently
engaged in a "doc-a-thon" at ApacheCon EU to polish the documentation for
our processes and policies.

An article discussing the Incubator was vetted by the PRC, and should be out
this month.  I have asked to see if we can get electronic reproduction
rights from the publisher for the article.

The STATUS file for the project is up to date. The code is clean and
using only Apache-compliant libraries, it has the correct copyright
notices and is in the org.apache.activemq namespace. We've got all the
software grants sorted and all developers have their CLAs on file and
accounts created. The project's active mailing lists are proof of the
vibrant community behind ActiveMQ.

The Apache ActiveMQ 4.0 final has successfully been released. For more
information about the release, see:
Development has started on the next 4.1 release. In tandem, the 4.0
branch has continued to stablize and a 4.0.1 release should be ready
shortly. Bug fix releases should start occurring now with more

The website home page has now been sorted out and is being checked
into svn. The static HTML is being generated from a Confluence wiki
and content is very easy to update now. See:


Project resources have been set up with the exception of issue
tracking. (we seem to have decided to use Jira instead of Bugzilla)

The Code Grant has been received and acknowledged

James Snell's ICLA has been received and acknowledged

Rob Yates ICLA was faxed in on Friday, June 16th but has not yet been

The initial code drop has been checked in to SVN

All copyright notices have been updated

Notice and License are included

Ant and Maven build scripts are included

We've decided on a repository layout

The initial drop of the project site has been checked in and includes
an FAQ, Getting Started Guide, Developer's Guide and Javadocs.

ADF Faces

The STATUS file for the project has been committed. Since the name ADF
Faces is only temporary, a vote for a new name was started. The new
name Trinidad has been choosen by the community. The Community itself
is growing. Users requested enhancements which have been provided.
Also some users contributed help and patches. For wiki the Trinidad /
ADF Faces project uses the Wiki of its sponsor, the Apache MyFaces
project. Some todos have been identified at the wiki, like continuum
based nightly build.

There is discussion on integrating the skinning and PPR rendering
solutions of Trinidad into Tomahawk.


Cayenne 1.2 Release Candidate was announced on 5/31/2006. The first
release from the Incubator (Cayenne 2.0) is planned to immediately
follow 1.2-final. It will be exact equivalent of non-Apache release
1.2, with package names changed to org.apache.cayenne, simplifying
user migration to the new namespace.

Mike Kienenberger and Andrus Adamchik were added to the Podling PMC.

We started collecting CLA's from emeritus committers. So far CLA's for
Holger Hoffstatte and Michael Shengaout are recorded. Most of the
remaining ones are confirmed to be in the mail and should be recorded

We are  mentoring three projects as a part of Google Summer of Code program.


There was not so much commits on the project due to the current
commiters activities. The company Sword Technologies donates new
Graffito services (worfklow, news management , mail and scheduler
services). Christophe will try to review and commit this code asap.

The Spring support is finished for the OCM Tools. Now the OCM tools
will be used in the complete Graffito stack. By this way, the Graffito
persistence service can access to JCR repositories.

Graffito is working with Jetspeed 2 head.


The contributing vendor backed out in favor of their own alliance
group without ever really getting started in the Incubator.  Unless
there is interest within the ASF, the Incubator PMC will retire this


The log4net team has recently release 1.2.10. This release includes
many minor fixes which dramatically improve the quality of the
release. Since the release we have been tracking user feedback to
define our priorities for the next release.


After committing log4php PHP5 base code, not much going on this month.
No users has sent contributions and the mailing lists have low
activity. Hope to get some user contributions in the next month or


Lucene.Net continues to progressing. Recently Lucene.Net 1.9 RC1 build
4 Beta was released and it's on its way to become "final" by the end
of the month. Folks are beginning to discover Lucene.Net and
activities on the project from posting questions and code fixes are
beginning to show some signs of life however, things are still slow in
terms of participation. Lucene.Net can use some publicity and exposure
which I intend to start doing.


Code from both BPE and PXE has been checked into the project's
subversion repository with appropriate headers, and the group is
prototyping and discussing approaches for integrating the engine with
an external runtime (e.g., a "plain old JVM", a J2EE application
server, or a JBI container) and for deployment.

PXE developers are also documenting the codebase (and especially the
engine core) to get all contributors to the same level of


In summary, things are progressing well. No major issues at this time.

The gathering of iCLAs is mostly completed:

  total number of our contributors with iCLAs on file: 62

  there are 15 iCLAs that has been sent but not still filed at Apache;
  we hope to see them in soon

  there are 4 contributors whom we have been unable to contact: we have
  reviewed their contributions (that are fairly small) and we have asked
  to the Incubator PMC for help with this

removed and replaced all the jar files licensed under not-allowed
licenses (mostly LGPL)

completed the migration to the new issue tracking system: now we are
using the Apache's Jira server

completed the migration to the new mailing lists

asked for a new committer's account for our new committer Jacques Le
Roux; we are waiting for it to be created
