--------------------
Drill

Description:

Apache Drill is a distributed system for interactive analysis of large-scale
datasets that is based on Google's Dremel. Its goal is to efficiently
process nested data, scale to 10,000 servers or more and to be able to
process petabyes of data and trillions of records in seconds.

Drill has been incubating since 2012-08-11.

Three Issues to Address in Move to Graduation:
Complete the 1.0 feature set (team targets next release and graduation
in the month of July)
Continue to attract new developers/contributors with a variety of
skills and viewpoints
Continue the outreach activities to build the early user community for
the technology


Issues to Call to Attention of PMC or ASF Board:

  None

How community has developed since last report:

  Community awareness and outreach were strengthened in multiple forums as below

First Apache Drill Hackathon was organized on 4/24. Over 40
participants including members from Visa, Linkedin, Cisco, Hortonworks
worked to harden/enhance Drill project. Several new features have been
added to Drill product Array reference functions, enhanced Optiq
support, Kafka storage plugin, robust testing framework etc

--------------------
Falcon

Falcon is a data processing and management solution for Hadoop designed for
data motion, coordination of data pipelines, lifecycle management, and data
discovery. Falcon enables end consumers to quickly onboard their data and
its associated processing and management tasks on Hadoop clusters.

Falcon has been incubating since 2013-03-27.


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

  1. Continue to build a broader community
  2. Add more committers to the project


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?

   * More users & contributors have joined the falcon project and the
community continues to grow rapidly
   * We have had 2 Birds of Feather for Falcon at Hadoop Summit,
Europe and USA. There were quite a few registered users


How has the project developed since the last report?

   * 0.5-incubating release candidate is available for vote
   * Project now has diverse user & contributor base
   * It appears to be time for the community to start thinking about graduation


Date of last release:

   * 2014-02-03 (0.4-incubating)

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

   * Two new committers have joined the project on 2014-03-07

--------------------
Flink

Flink is an open source system for expressive, declarative, fast, and
efficient data analysis. Flink combines the scalability and programming
flexibility of distributed MapReduce-like platforms with the efficiency, out-
of-core execution, and query optimization capabilities found in parallel
databases.

Flink has been incubating since 2014-04-14.

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

  1. Infrastructure setup (git, JIRA, mailing list renaming)
  2. Release
  3. Build an ASF community

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 still "lives" outside the ASF since the infrastructure
is not ready.
  Two new contributors opened pull requests since the last report.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  The community has voted for a new name, so the project is moving
away from its old name
  "Stratosphere" to the new one: "Flink".
  We are still waiting for Infra to rename the mailing list, to create
a JIRA (blocked by the mailing list)
  and create a Git repository (blocked by the SGA (which we already provided) ).
  We released a new major release (0.5) outside the ASF.

Date of last release:

  2014-05-31 (no incubator release yet)

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

  Only initial committers.

Shepherd/Mentor notes:
  Project dev@ list has healthy traffic.
  Some of the mentors are active on the list and helping community. No
visible issues.

--------------------
Kalumet

No report submitted this month.
--------------------
log4cxx2

Logging for C++

log4cxx2 has been incubating since 2013-12-09.

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

  1. We probably need to decide what's an acceptable platform/compiler
list, sort out any
     remaining hiccups, and then move towards a release.
  2. We need to release 0.11.0 as maintenance release.
  3. We need to make a broader use of the ASF infrastructure
     (notably the CI, as well as improved management of the Jira
     site - notably with triaging), and establish a roadmap for
     the next releases.

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

  N/A

How has the community developed since the last report?

  No changes in team.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  We are actively supporting the project. Mails suggest that there's work going
  on in the background by some committers especially regarding the
build process,
  but there hasn't been any notable commit in the last weeks. The current trunk
  now fixes most of the important outstanding bugs.

Date of last release:

  2008-04-03 was the official, pre-incubation 0.10.0

  Many post-0.10.0 commits exist on trunk which we intend to get out as 0.11.x.

MRQL

MRQL is a query processing and optimization system for large-scale,
distributed data analysis, built on top of Apache Hadoop, Hama, and Spark.

MRQL has been incubating since 2013-03-13.

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

  1. increase adoption, expand user community, and increase user list activity
  2. have at least one more incubator 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?

A new PMC member was elected, Moon Soo Lee. The company DataSayer and
the project Zeppelin (zeppelin-project.org) are now using MRQL.

How has the project developed since the last report?

--------------------
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. Podling name search
  2. Growing user community
  3. Growing and increasing diversity of developer community

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're only getting started, and do not have any diversity yet. Our first
goal will be to get users, bug reporters and developers. The dev list
is up and running -and we do not have any separate user list, so we hope
to pull users into coding.

The initial release will help to gain awareness, and should bring in users.

How has the project developed since the last report?

Our main activity has been setting up the incubator-hosted project, JIRA,
site, mailing list. etc. The Infra team have been very helpful here.

-Making and publishing our site has educated us on site publishing

-The initial release has taught us of the release process for incubating
projects, and where we need to improve it.

We're still trying to get Jenkins building, but that's a matter of
handling protobuf-versions on the build machines, rather than infra
involvement.

We have made our first ASF-hosted release on June 2. This was a source
only release; some of the reviewers have made suggestions which will need
to be incorporated into the next. We plan to do another release in a few
weeks time, and so evolve the project rapidly.

Date of last release:

  2014-06-02

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

We have only just set up and so the committer and PMC membership is
as covered in the incubator proposal.

  3. Documentation improvements

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 have added on additional committer and community activity in the mailing
 lists continues to grow.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 We have held a logo contest and completed the first of two rounds of voting.
 Final logo selection will take place shortly. We have also established a
 feature branch for incorporating all the security work done by the engineering
 team at Yahoo!. Having the option for secure Storm deployments will play a big
 role in increasing enterprise adoption.

 We plan on initiating our next release next week in addition to completing the
 logo contest. Once these two tasks are complete we would like to consider
 beginning the graduation process.
