Subject Re: [DRAFT] Board Report for December 2014 - please review
Date Mon, 08 Dec 2014 00:46:27 GMT
John, as usual thanks a ton for all of your hard work.

I'll add few of my comments directly to the wiki, but all
in all it looks good and ready to be submitted.

One thing that I'm really concerned about is, to your
point, the # of missing reports. In some cases, I'm
sure this is just a function of an oversight, but in
cases like NPanday I think we need to get to
some kind of a closure of what to do with
poddling.

I'll restart a few threads.

Thanks,
Roman.

> Tamaya is a highly flexible configuration solution based on an modular,

> Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
>   1. Project web site must be setup (ongoing).

>   3. Improve code base for being ready for a first release around Q1 2015.

>
> How has the community developed since the last report?
>   Many of the committers have successfully filed the ICLA and also started
>   to contribute, some of them already by doing first patches. Feedback in
>   the community was overwhelming. We could also successfully place the
>   topic at conferences as well as in the German Java Magazin and other
>   events. Also interest of people during the Zurich Hackergarten in
>   November was great and will definitely lead to additional committers
>   early 2015.
>
> How has the project developed since the last report?
>   The project setup is going quite well. Initial committers are onboarding,
>   the initial code donation was successfully moved and other preconditions
>   like the project name, IP clearance, Jenkins etc. were successfully done.
>   Thanks to INFRA for their incredible support!
>
> Date of last release: Still getting started.

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

> Most of the proposed initial committers have sorted CLAs

>
> Many of the remaining initial committers have not been active in the recent
> years. We're following up these (and others) through private conversations.
> There's been some confusion with regards to the term "committer" - some

> the source code!
>
>
> Not much further development - worried that dev@taverna are scared away by

>
> How has the project developed since the last report?
>
> Source code is being restructured at https://github.com/taverna-incubator
> before being staged to import into git.apache.org
>
> Normal development continues at https://github.com/taverna/ - due to
> prepare the final 2.5.1 non-Apache release.
>
> Stian Soiland-Reyes was at ApacheCon in Budapest, fruitful discussions with
> mentor Andy Seaborne and Gavin McDonald from INFRA with regards to the
> transitioning of Taverna's existing source code repository, wiki and issue
> tracker (luckily git->git, confluence->confluence and jira->jira).
>
>
> Date of last release:
>
>   No release since incubation.

>
> When were the last committers or PMC members elected?
