Subject Re: Incubator PMC/Board report for Jul 2013 ([ppmc])
Date Sat, 06 Jul 2013 20:48:09 GMT
Hey Chris, unfortunately I don't have permission to edit the wiki page (on my MateiZaharia
account), but here is the update in plain text:



Spark is an open source system for fast and flexible large-scale data analysis. Spark provides
a general purpose runtime that supports low-latency execution in several forms.

Spark has been incubating since 2013-06-19.

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

  1. Finish bringing up infrastructure on Apache (JIRA, "user" mailing list, SVN repo for
  2. Migrate mailing lists and development to Apache
  3. Make a Spark 0.8 under the Apache Incubator

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

While most of our infrastructure is now up, it has taken a while to get a JIRA, a SVN repo
for our website (so we can use the CMS), and a mailing list
(so we can move our existing user list, which is large).

How has the community developed since the last report?

We only entered the Apache Incubator at the end of June, but in the existing developer community
keeps expanding and we are seeing many new features from new contributors.

How has the project developed since the last report?

In terms of the Apache incubation process, we filed our IP papers and got a decent part of
the infrastructure set up (Git, dev list, wiki, Jenkins group).

Date of last release: 

Please check this [ ] when you have filled in the report for Spark.
