Subject Re: [DRAFT] Incubator PMC Board Report - August 2016
Date Thu, 11 Aug 2016 22:45:27 GMT
We're still missing sign off from Slider and TrafficControl.
TrafficControl's MLs don't seem to work yet, as a result this email
includes the mentors directly.

>
>  The Apache Hadoop YARN community/PMC and Apache Slider community/PPMC has
>  decided to move portions of Slider into YARN, to make fast and significant
>  progress on: YARN-4692 - [Umbrella] Simplified and first-class support for
>  services in YARN. As a result, portions like Slider Core, Application
>  Master, Client and Tests will roll into Apache Hadoop YARN as module(s).
>  This effort is being captured in: YARN-5079 : Native YARN framework layer
>  for services. At this point, a branch has been created in the Hadoop
>  codebase, and Slider has been selectively migrated. As a result of this,
>  we are already seeing interest in the Hadoop committers/PMC, who have
>  started to contribute and submit patches to Slider.
>
>  In order to support existing users of Slider, and to provide seamless
>  migration, there will be sufficient overlap between the time when a stable
>  state of long running services support is available in some future version
>  of YARN and the time till an independent Slider release is available. The
>  community/PPMC will also determine the future state of Slider as we

> Unomi
>
> Unomi is a reference implementation of the OASIS Context Server
> specification

> Unomi has been incubating since 2015-10-05.

> Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
>
>  1. Continued releases, and updated dependencies
>  2. Grow up user and contributor communities, seeing more contribution/PR
>
> Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be aware
> of?

>  None

> How has the community developed since the last report?
>
>  The activity of the dev mailing list smoothly increased, discussing key
>  enhancements in the project.
>
>  We are now targeting the development of the user community.  For that, we
>  discussed about improving and polishing the website. Today, it's obvious
>  that it's not easy to understand what Unomi can do and actually does.  The
>  purpose is to give more use cases and introduction on the mailing list.

> How has the project developed since the last report?
