Subject Contents of Podling Status Tracking
Date Tue, 06 Jun 2017 03:22:33 GMT
As a follow up to my prior question, (
https://lists.apache.org/thread.html/31119aafbc4260720d222666f3efd01f2fe2975e424039ea539c9cb6@%3Cgeneral.incubator.apache.org%3E
).
Looking at our current tracking file for podlings, I wonder how much of the
information is useful.  Let's use Traffic Control as a for instance here:
http://incubator.apache.org/projects/trafficcontrol.html (its nothing
they're doing bad, I just happened to grab them)

- The committer list is fully replaced by the Whimsy Roster Tool
- Do we care about News? Shouldn't this be captured in the quarterly
reports?
- I see a lot of usefulness in tracking the Podling Name Search request
- The first few questions have to do with the actual vote.  I think these
can best be captured by two fields - "Sponsor" and "Date Accepted into
Incubator"
- Infra section - I think all of these are important, we may want to expand
some of the options to include gitbox and other tools that are managed
outside our hosted infrastructure.
- Mentor section - I'm not sure how useful this is, but I want to get
others opinions.  Mentors being on the IPMC is a pre-req for votes, so this
is hopefully less of an issue.
- Copyright - I believe this can be replaced by a single field "Date SGA
Received".  Copyright headers are subjective.
- Add a new field "Date of IP Clearance" for projects using IP Clearance
instead of SGA (e.g. already Apache v2)
- Verify Distribution Rights - I think this can be rewritten to instead say
"Date of Release with no Source Licensing Issues" (listing out the bullet
points mentioned here) and a new field "Date of Release with no Binary
Licensing Issues" (indicating some of the Cat-B/Optional Cat-X stuff)
- I don't think we need the committers section at the bottom, since the
roster would be controlled from Whimsy itself.

Is there more information that we could leverage to make this easier to
watch?  I figure that once a podling has filled out all of these (except
for one of SGA/IP Clearance) we can tell them they're close to graduation.

John
