Subject DRAFT Apache MADlib (incubating) monthly report for
Date Thu, 07 Jan 2016 05:31:57 GMT
Here is the draft report for Jan 2016.

It will be posted at

Please let me know if you have any additions/comments/suggestions.  Roman
maybe you can add # mailing list subscribers if you get a chance.  Sorry
for not providing more time for review on this mailing list, but I think we
have a day or 2 of grace if anyone has changes to suggest.




Big Data Machine Learning in SQL for Data Scientists.

MADlib has been incubating since 2015-09-15.

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

  1. Produce a first Apache (incubating) release.
  2. Expand the community, increase dev list activity and add new
committers/pmc members.
  3. Execute and manage the project according to governance model required
by the "Apache Way”.

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


How has the community developed since the last report?

  1. Second community call held 12/18/15.  On the call Roman suggested that
the MADlib community do a 1.9 alpha release in the near term.  There was
general agreement and this is planned for January.  A Release Manager has
not yet been identified.
  2. Material technical conversations on dev mailing lists and in the
appropriate JIRAs.  E.g., 51 emails on dev in Dec.
  3. One new committer has been proposed and voting is under way on the
private mailing list.
  4. Two comprehensive proposals were posted to the dev mailing list from
community members.  One relates to the addition of geographically weighted
regression (GWR) algorithms.  The second involves Bayesian analysis of
binomial response models for MPP databases, which makes extensive use of
MADlib’s new matrix operations.  Both proposals are under active discussion
on the mailing list currently.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  1. 5 JIRAs created and 4 resolved in last 30 days.
  2. A SQL API guide has been added to the the MADlib wiki

Date of last release:

  No release yet.

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

  One new committer has been proposed and voting is under way on the
private mailing list.
