Subject Re: Draft Report February 2015 - please review
Date Wed, 11 Feb 2015 11:56:08 GMT
Not sure if this is too late..

I added the Taverna's completed Name Search under the Legal /
Trademarks summary.


I didn't add Taverna under IP Clearance - although it's been sent to
secretary@, it's not been confirmed by the secretary - probably
something fell over with email + attachments + interweb. :-/

>   We've done a source-only release in November, 0.60.0-incubating, in sync
>   with features in Hadoop 2.6, with a binary packing version,
>   0.61.0-incubating has just been voted for release (3-feb 2015); the
>   incubator vote is now pending. It was nice to see tests and a vote on the
>   release from an external user & patch submitter -community engagement
>   includes things like this.
>
>   A new release, 0.70 is being created with the release planned
>   mid-February. This will include improved features and fixes —especially
>   those reported by users of the 0.60 release. For example, one group wanted
>   short-lived applications on secure clusters, instances where Slider does
>   not need to worry about keytab expiry. Another need of people writing
>   slider-deployed applications was for a placement policy of "only ever ask
>   for component placement where instances were before"; this is needed for
>   Kafka.
>
>   Some of the feature requests are quite "ambitious", especially those
>   related to deployed components providing information back to the Web/REST
>   GUIs, and extending the configuration model to include: more
>   on-target-machine configuration, per-instance configuration and better
>   strategies for placing components within the YARN cluster. These requests
>   do represent real needs; even if they are long term features we need to
>   think about how to get there.
>
>   We're discussing supplementing the dev@ mailing list with issues@ and
>   user@ lists; the issues list for all JIRA updates -creation and completion
>   would still go to the developer list. This is to separate the noise of
>   JIRA-centric development from a developer list focused on broader
>   application features and building a community. We don't want to scare
>   people off from too much JIRA, or worse: lose what they have to say in the
>   emails. Similarly, the user@ list is where we want to encourage users. The
>   original rationale for a single list was "one single community
>   discussion", but it's not clear its worked out that way.
