> Attachment L: Report from the Apache Calcite Project  [Julian Hyde]
>
> ## Description:
>
> Apache Calcite is a highly customizable framework for parsing and
> planning queries on data in a wide variety of formats. It allows
> database-like access, and in particular a SQL interface and advanced
> query optimization, for data not residing in a traditional database.
>
> Avatica is a sub-module within Calcite, and provides a framework for
> building local and remote JDBC and ODBC database drivers. Since March
> 2016, Avatica has an independent release schedule, but resides in the
> same git repository.
>
> ## Issues:
>
> - There are no issues requiring board attention at this time.
>
> ## Activity:
>
> Calcite became a top-level project exactly one year ago. On
> graduation, the community decided not to adopt bylaws, but to have a
> "state of the project" discussion each year, and to rotate the PMC
> chair yearly if possible. We have been having this discussion, and
> there seems to be consensus on a candidate for PMC chair.
>
> Feedback during the discussion included:
> * Satisfaction with the pace of the project, and its ablity to "fan
>   out" to cover diverse areas of interest (some of practical use to
>   production systems, some of them more experimental);
> * A sense that Avatica is still doing OK as a sub-project (that is, it
>   is not yet time to consider TLP status), but needs to be factored
>   into its own git repo;
> * A thirst for documentation to make it easier for casual users to use
>   Calcite.
>
> Development and mailing list activity is steady for both Calcite and
> its Avatica sub-project. There has been one release of Calcite, with
> another currently under vote, and no releases of Avatica.
>
> Julian Hyde gave a talk at FlinkForward (Berlin).
>
> ## Health report:
>
> Activity levels on mailing lists, git and JIRA are normal for both
> Calcite and Avatica.
