## Description:

- Apache MADlib is a scalable, big data, SQL-driven machine learning framework for data scientists.


## Issues:

- There are no issues requiring board attention at this time.


## Activity:

- Community is working on defining the scope of the 1.15 release in JIRA and mailing lists.
- Community has been building and posting data science notebooks as a quick start guide to using MADlib.  There are currently more than 25 notebooks available at 
https://github.com/apache/madlib-site/tree/asf-site/community-artifacts 


## Health report:

The community is relatively small but very engaged with robust mailing list traffic, interest in doing frequent releases and new functionality being developed by contributors. 
The number of developers actively contributing to the code/documentation is approximately 9 in the first quarter of the calendar year, which is about the same as the last report.
We will constantly be on a lookout for new community members to be invited either as committers or PMC.
