Subject Re: Preparing for the October reports
Date Sun, 30 Sep 2012 18:39:59 GMT
I updated the report, and the community needs to have a volunteer to
be release manager for
release Chukwa 0.6.  Grace has fixed a lot of bugs, and agent to
collector compression can be a good feature for 0.6 release.

Here is the report for the community to review:


Chukwa is an open source data collection system for monitoring large
distributed systems. Chukwa is built on top of the Hadoop Distributed
File System (HDFS), HBase and Map/Reduce framework and inherits Hadoop’s
scalability and robustness. Chukwa also includes a flexible and powerful
toolkit for displaying, monitoring and analyzing results to make the best
use of the collected data.

  - Mailing lists have some activities.
  - 2 new committers since July.
  - 3 new contributors submitted patches since last report in July.

Most important issues to address:

  Growing the community, especially a new release manager

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

  None at this time.

How has the community developed since the last report:

  Plan to release version 0.6 to fix some of the major bugs in version 0.5.

How has the project developed since the last report:

  More patches are received from new committer and contributors.  The
new patches
  are better quality to polish Chukwa code base for 0.6 release.
Chukwa community
  need to train new release manager to release Chukwa 0.6 to ensure
the community
  can continue to flourish.  The previous concern of inactive
development is less
  concerning than during January to July time frame.
