Subject RE: Incubator PMC/Board report for Nov 2014 ([ppmc])
Date Wed, 29 Oct 2014 21:32:32 GMT

I did not see any reports, so I tried my hand are creating my first one. Please provide feedback,
and we can submit it. 


Ripple is a browser based mobile phone emulator designed to aid in
the development of HTML5 based mobile applications. Ripple is a
cross platform and cross runtime testing/debugging tool. It
currently supports such runtimes as Cordova, WebWorks aand the
Mobile Web.

Ripple has been incubating since 2012-10-16.

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

The community recently discussed the lack of growth in the project. Some members felt that
retirement of the podling was appropriate. Others have stepped up to take over essential tasks
and attempt to build a community. We have agreed with mentors to review this situation in
6 months. 
It is possible that Ripple is no longer important as its functionality is potentiall being
replaced by Cordova-browser.  
Our original champion, Ross Gardler has also up to help evaluate the situation.  

How has the community developed since the last report?

No new committers since last June 2014. 

How has the project developed since the last report?

Minor user contributions.

Date of last release:

No release made as yet, this will be the first item to recieve attention. 

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

June, 2014.

Thanks Parashu, best thing to do is draft something and share it here for comment. Most important
thing is to summarize the recent community health discussion. We will need to include a couple
of sentences in how we plan to move from the current state to something more acceptable in
six months.

I can help with that part of you struggle, community building is not an easy task.

Dear podling,

This email was sent by an automated system on behalf of the Apache Incubator PMC.
It is an initial reminder to give you plenty of time to prepare your quarterly board report.

The board meeting is scheduled for Wed, 19 November 2014, 10:30 am PST. The report for your
podling will form a part of the Incubator PMC report. The Incubator PMC requires your report
to be submitted 2 weeks before the board meeting, to allow sufficient time for review and
submission (Wed, Nov 5th).

Please submit your report with sufficient time to allow the incubator PMC, and subsequently
board members to review and digest. Again, the very latest you should submit your report is
2 weeks prior to the board meeting.


The Apache Incubator PMC

Submitting your Report

Your report should contain the following:

 * Your project name
 * A brief description of your project, which assumes no knowledge of the project
   or necessarily of its field
 * A list of the three most important issues to address in the move towards
 * Any issues that the Incubator PMC or ASF Board might wish/need to be aware of
 * How has the community developed since the last report
 * How has the project developed since the last report.

This should be appended to the Incubator Wiki page at:

Note: This is manually populated. You may need to wait a little before this page
      is created from a template.

Mentors should review reports for their project(s) and sign them off on the Incubator wiki
page. Signing off reports shows that you are following the project - projects that are not
signed may raise alarms for the Incubator PMC.
