The Metron report, pasted below, was filed late (partly due to wiki
permission issues), but I see from the dev@metron archives that it was
prepared last week.

I also see that Billie Rinaldi approved the report in an email, so
I've taken the liberty of signing off on her behalf.

I'm happy to help out a new podling but please get in the habit of
filing your reports on time. :)

Metron integrates a variety of open source big data technologies in order to
offer a centralized tool for security monitoring and analysis. Metron
provides capabilities for log aggregation, full packet capture indexing,
storage, advanced behavioral analytics and data enrichment, while applying
the most current threat-intelligence information to security telemetry
within a single platform.

Metron has been incubating since 12-08-2015

Three most important issues to address in the move towards

  - Building a diverse community of developers for Metron
  - Getting security practitioners to provide feedback on requirements
  - Make an Apache release

Any issues that the Incubator PMC or ASF Board might wish/need to be aware

  - We are currently trying to produce the first Apache release of Metron
  - We would like to request Apache infrastructure (a Jenkins server) for CI

How has the community developed since the last report

  - We started working on implementing a variety of new features on Metron
  - We did a Meetup in the DC area jointly with Capital One.  We had over 75
    people in attendance with many expressing interest in joining the Metron

How has the project developed since the last report

  - This month we have closed 7 key Jiras and built up scripts for standing
    up an integration and test environment for Metron that anyone in the
    community can take advantage of
