Subject DRAFT: ASF HAWQ Incubator PMC report for April 2017
Date Fri, 31 Mar 2017 18:04:49 GMT
Team HAWQ,

Below is the draft ASF HAWQ Incubator PMC report for April 2017, covering
Q1 2017 activity.

It is posted at http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/April2017

Please let me know if you have any comments or suggestions and I will update
the report.


*Ed Espino*


Apache HAWQ is a Hadoop native SQL query engine that combines the key
technological advantages of MPP database with the scalability and
of Hadoop. HAWQ reads data from and writes data to HDFS natively.  HAWQ
delivers industry-leading performance and linear scalability. It provides
users the tools to confidently and successfully interact with petabyte range
data sets. HAWQ provides users with a complete, standards compliant SQL

HAWQ has been incubating since 2015-09-04.

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

  1. Continue to improve the project's release cadence. To this end we
     plan on expanding automation services to support increased
     developer participation.

  2. Continue to expand the community, by adding new contributors and
     focusing on making sure that there's a much more robust level of
     conversations and discussions happening around roadmaps and
     feature development on the public dev mailing list.

  3. Expand release artifacts to include the delivery of binary
     artifacts. We expect the project to significantly refine the
     binary release process in several key areas.

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

  1. Nothing urgent at this time.

How has the community developed since the last report?

  1. Two Meetups took place in Beijing, China:

     * HAWQ Meetup (January 123, 2017)

       - HAWQ2.X New Features - Yanqing Wen, Pivotal HAWQ Senior
       - HAWQ Elasticity - Huan Zhang, Pivotal HAWQ Senior Engineer
       - Data Lake and HAWQ Integration - Wenbin Lu, EMC Big Data
         Senior Engineer

     * HAWQ Meetup (March 23, 2017)

       - Apache HAWQ Exploration Step by Step - Configuration, Build,
         Deployment and Debug by Xiang Sheng, Pivotal Software
       - Transaction Management in Apache HAWQ by Ming Li, Pivotal
         Senior Software Engineer
       - Max Compute - A SQL engine based on Apache HAWQ by Chen Xia,
         Database Expert in Alibaba Cloud

  2. A significant push by the dev community has been made to review
     and merge the project's Pull Requests (PR). As of March 30, 2017,
     eight of the nine open PRs have been opened in the last ten
     days. The PR opened on Sep 2016 is targeted to be merged after
     the Apache release.

  3. Recent porting efforts:

     - Persistent Systems Engineers are actively engaging the dev
       community on their HAWQ porting efforts to RHEL 7.1 on S390

     - Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS (Xenial Xerus) porting notes have been
       published on dev list.

  4. Ruilong Huo has volunteered to be the Release Manager (RM) for
     the upcoming release

How has the project developed since the last report?

  1. Apache HAWQ (source code only) has been released.

  2. Apache HAWQ release proposed (source code and first
     binary release).  This is the 3rd release as an incubating
