Subject Re: Podling Report Reminder - July 2016
Date Mon, 04 Jul 2016 21:07:03 GMT
The following report will be uploaded.  Give me a -1 if you disagree, otherwise will upload
by COB today.



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 2015-12-06.

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 of

  - We are currently trying to produce our second Apache release of Metron

* How has the community developed since the last report

  - In the process of adding one additional committer, Michael Miklavcic 
  - We accepted numerous contributions from non-committers interested
    in Metron, including additional parsers and sample telemetries 
  - We host a weekly UI working session and were able to source requirements for a new UI
   - We hosted a Metron meetup, which received a lot of interest from the community
  - We saw an uptick in interest from the community on the dev boards which
    corresponds to people trying the product prior to an official release,
    which is a good sign.
   - We are receiving community JIRAs for bug reports and security issues 

* How has the project developed since the last report

  - We closed over 100 Jiras and are in the latest stages of releasing
    our second Apache release.
  - We added additional installation automation and documentation
  - We added additional features around parsing and a rules engine through a DSL called Stellar
  - We are adding infrastructure called "Model as a Service" to uptake ML models 

Date of last release:

  April 2016

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

  David Lyle on 22 March 2016
