Subject Re: Incubator PMC/Board report for Nov 2015 ([ppmc])
Date Tue, 03 Nov 2015 05:21:55 GMT
Hi all,

I drafted the following Incubator report for Apache Cotton, pasted below, and updated the
wiki just now. Please share any comments, revisions, or suggestions — your participation
is encouraged.



Cotton is an Apache Mesos framework for running MySQL instances.

Cotton has been incubating since 2015-06.

Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:

 1. Increase project communication on mailing lists
 2. Attract new project contributors and committers
 3. Establish a first release at Apache

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be aware of?

Development of Cotton has largely been inactive for the last two months, due to limited time
from the original developer and community engagements including MesosCon Seattle and MesosCon

How has the community developed since the last report?

There has been limited participation on the mailing lists and JIRA, however a discussion on
the private@ list was established about this issue and there's a desire to keep the project
in the incubator and be more proactive in building community in the coming months.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 * Apache Cotton was presented at MesosCon, available for viewing on YouTube:
 * Limited development has occurred since the last report.

Several JIRA issues outline some of the earliest outstanding work, including setting up a
project website and renaming portions of the codebase to reflect the new Apache Cotton name
(formerly Mysos).

Date of last release:


When were the last committers or PMC members elected?
