Subject [VOTE] Apache Sirona as an incubated project
Date Wed, 09 Oct 2013 01:29:41 GMT
Since discussion about the Sirona seems done, I'd like to call a vote
for Sirona to become an incubated project.

The proposal is pasted below, and also available at:

Let's keep this vote open for three business days.

[ ] +1 Accept Sirona into the Incubator
[ ] +0 Don't care.
[ ] -1 Don't accept Sirona because...

== Abstract ==

Apache Sirona aims to provide a simple but extensible monitoring
solution for Java applications.

Apache Sirona provides two kind of components :

  * Apache Sirona Core to provide a base framework for
monitoring/recording a Java application.

  * Default based plugins

  * Apache Sirona base reporting web application (provide a basic
reporting on recorded figures).

== Background ==

Currently, Apache Sirona source is hosted in Apache Commons Sandbox
scm. The development has begun few years ago but goes to dormant

== Rationale ==

Currently users who need some monitoring need to use some non Open
Source solutions or GPL solutions. The goal is to provide a solution
based on the Apache License.

== Initial Goals ==

Apache Sirona doesn't have any release currently. The initial goal of
this project will be to build community in the spirit of the "Apache
Way", and to address new features and bug-fixes of the first releases.

=== Current Status ===

Intent of the proposal is to build a diverse community of developers
around Sirona. Sirona started in the Apache Commons Sandbox, driven in
the spirit of open source and we would like to continue in this spirit
by, for example, encouraging contributors from a variety of

=== Community ===

Apache Sirona stakeholders desire to expand the user and developer
base of Apache Sirona further in the future

== Known Risks ==

=== Orphaned Products ===

Sirona is a new product. So without community adoption the risks of it
being orphaned exist.

=== Inexperience with Open Source ===

The code has been developed in Apache Commons Sandbox mostly by Romain
Manni-Bucau and Olivier Lamy who intimately familiar with the Apache
model for open-source development and is experienced with working with
new contributors.

=== Homogeneous Developers ===

The initial set of committers is from a small set of organizations.
However, we expect that once approved for incubation, the project will
attract new contributors from diverse organizations and will thus grow
organically. The participation of developers from several different
organizations in the mailing list is a strong indication for this

=== Reliance on Salaried Developers ===

It is expected that Apache Sirona will be developed on salaried and
volunteer time.

=== Relationships with Other Apache Products ===

Apache Sirona depends upon other Apache Projects: Velocity and various
Apache Commons components and build systems like Maven.

=== A Fascination with the Apache Brand ===

The reason for joining Apache is to foster a healthy community of
contributors and consumers around the project. This is facilitated by
ASF and that is the primary reason we would like Apache Sirona to
become an Apache project.

== Documentation ==


== Initial Source ==

== Source and Intellectual Property Submission Plan ==

The initial source is already Apache 2.0 licensed.

== External Dependencies ==

The required external dependencies are all Apache License or
compatible licenses. Following components with non-Apache licenses are
enumerated :

== Cryptography ==

Apache Sirona does not depend upon any cryptography tools or libraries.

== Required Resources ==

=== Mailing lists ===

* sirona-private (with moderated subscriptions)

* sirona-dev

* sirona-commits

* sirona-user

== Subversion Directory ==

== Issue Tracking ==

JIRA Sirona (key: SIRONA)

== Other Resources ==

The existing code already has unit and integration tests so we would
like to use Jenkins instance to run them whenever a new patch is
submitted. This can be added after project creation.

== Initial Committer ==

* Romain Manni-Bucau (

* Jean-Louis Monteiro (

* Fred Zhang (no ASF account)

* Fabrice Bacchella (no ASF account)

* Christian Grobmeier (
