- 4. Executive Officer Reports
-
-    A. Chairman [Brett]
-
-       The main topic of discussion on the board list over the last month has
-       been release practices. As it progressed, it was good to see that
-       ongoing operational concerns were handled separately from discussion
-       about how to do more frequent releases within the bounds of current
-       ASF policy. Releasing open source software to the public is one of the
-       most fundamental things we do, so it is important that it is handled
-       diligently.
-
-       We're getting closer to the time where we need to prepare for the
-       Annual Members Meeting, so I've started to canvas dates. Currently the
-       first week of June seems the most feasible, but I've included a
-       discussion item in the agenda to decide.
-
-       The ASF received an invitation to participate in the "2014 Future of
-       Open Source Survey", which Sally has taken forward with the PMCs.
-
-    B. President [Ross]
-
-      An extremely busy month for me personally which has kept me away from
-      many of my ASF duties.
-   
-      The EA contract was renewed as previously agreed. A new renewal date has
-      been entered into the calendar. With Melissa's help we are in the
-      processes of updating our Director records with CSC. Please note that
-      Melissa is now providing an approximate breakdown of her time. As is
-      appropriate Melissa is in full control of her time allocation, this new
-      reporting is intended only to inform the board for budget monitoring as
-      requested.
-
-      ApacheCon proceeds thanks to continuing significant effort from Rich.
-      Due to my personal issues this month I have not been as helpful as I had
-      hoped but it seems Rich has, as always, taken it in his stride. See the
-      EVP report for more detail.
-   
-      I am yet to make significant progress on reporting budget vs actuals.
-      The treasurer has provided some initial data exports but I have been
-      unable to find the time to process it. Since I need to create a new
-      budget for the following year I propose to build this reporting into a
-      new spreadsheet that I develop during the preparation of this budget.
-   
-      Trademarks remains very busy and Shane has indicated that he is falling
-      behind a little. I have encouraged Shane to continue to work with
-      Melissa to identify areas in which she can help. I also note that an
-      Member has also offered to help.
-   
-      Fundraising is also progressing well though it is notable that this is
-      taking up a reasonable chunk of both Sally's and Melissa's time. Like
-      trademarks we need to acknowledge this role is not one that a volunteer
-      can be expected to fill. Unlike Trademarks though VP Fundraising appears
-      to have been able to find sufficient tasks that can be handled by
-      contractors. I believe this is mainly due to the less legally sensitive
-      domain. However, I grow increasingly concerned that more support from
-      Officers in managing key sponsor relations is necessary.

-   
-      Marketing progresses with its usual rhythm. No exceptional items to
-      reports.
-   
-      Infra also reports nothing exceptional this month. I do note the ongoing
-      improvement of GitHub integration at the specific request of committers.
-   
-      I engaged with the Cordova PMC with respect to their release process.
-      Initially this engagement was only as a member attempting to help them
-      understand the lay of the land. However at the request of a number of
-      Directors and Infra I subsequently made a formal request (cc board@ and
-      infra-private@) to ensure releases after 2.8.1 are formally voted upon.
-      Joe has been working with the PMC to define a suitable process which
-      does not introduce unnecessary work. I will conduct any necessary sanity
-      checks with the board to ensure the final solution is acceptable. For
-      now the PMC has acknowledged the need to address this issue (see Cordova
-      report) and Joe reports that he is satisfied with progress to date.
-   
-      TAC has, once again, failed to submit a report (and due to my own
-      lateness they have not had a prompt from me). However, Melissa reports
-      progress has been made towards planning for ApacheCon.
-   
-      Additionally, please see Attachments 1 through 6.

-    C. Treasurer [Chris]
-
-       The Treasurer's Office processed repayment for some items related 
-       to the Dublin Meetup and also processed payment to NASDAQ Global
-       Newswire in coordination with VP Press, Marketing and the President.
-
-       The Treasurer and the President identified how a statement of actuals could 
-       be provided to the President quarterly.
-
-       Over the past month, the office has periodically provided information 
-       to the EA on sponsors and their incoming payments.
-
-       We have processed a payment to the EA and set up her new payment 
-       amount to reflect her updated contract and raise.
-
-       The Office dealt with an inquiry from the Apache OOo PMC regarding 
-       reimbursements for FOSDEM 2014.
-
-       We are actively coordinating with Virtual, Inc. to obtain a quote 
-       for their financial services.
-
-       We are working with EA and Nick Burch to handle wire transfer for 
-       initial payments for TAC flights for ACNA 2014.

-
-       January was an average month after the December doldrums.  There 
-       were 60 iclas and three cclas received and filed. 
-
-       The board subscription list received some overdue maintenance. 
-       LDAP subscriptions to pmc-chairs have been synchronized with PMC 
-       chairs in committee-info.txt. All but three PMC chairs are 
-       subscribed to board.

-    E. Executive Vice President [Rich]
-
-        ApacheCon North America 2014 will be held in Denver Colorado,
-        April 7-9, with tutorials and a co-located Cloudstack event to
-        follow on the 10th and 11th.
-
-        Since the last meeting, the ApacheCon call for papers has come
-        and gone, and we have, as of Monday, February 17th, selected a
-        schedule of talks for the event, and notified the selected
-        speakers. We are still receiving answers back from those
-        speakers and adjusting the schedule for the people who have
-        declined, or want their talks moved to avoid other conflicts.
-
-        Members of the Apache community were amazingly helpful in the
-        process of selecting the content, and I think we have a really
-        solid schedule for this event.
-
-        As compared to years past, the conference will have much more
-        content, with 10 tracks on Monday and Tuesday, and 9 on
-        Wednesday, and the Cloudstack Collaboration Conference on
-        Thursday and Friday. Additionally we have a day and a half
-        of tutorials, and numerous evening events.
-
-        It is now LF's responsibility to market the event and draw in
-        the registrations. I expect to have a report on registrations
-        for the next board meeting. The lead time is very short, and
-        they have their work cut out for them. Any way that we can help
-        promote the event will be important to augment their effort.
-
-        Meanwhile, we are looking at venues in Europe for November, with
-        Budapest and Rome being considered. And we are also very
-        tentatively looking at the possibility of doing an event in
-        Brazil, although that is unlikely to be in this calendar year.

-Attachment 2: Report from the VP of Brand Management  [Shane Curcuru]
-
-This was a very busy month on trademarks@, and there are a number of 
-open questions still being worked on.  There have also been a number of 
-good discussions about clarifying our policies - both for PMCs as well 
-as for third parties - and about improving the Project Independence 
-guidelines.
-
-Incubator PMC and trademarks@ was contacted by a third party about our 
-use of the Apache Sentry name for our security-related product.  
-Discussions are continuing.
-
-My two talks on Brand Management were accepted for ApacheCon Denver, and 
-also one brand talk at the following CloudStack Collab that week. Phew!
-
-The Apache Hadoop PMC created trademarks@hadoop.a.o privately archived 
-mailing list; plans are to use it for better coordination of various

-
-Met with counsel for the CLOUDSTACK matter, and met with a representative 
-from UKFast to work on a settlement to ensure our registration in the EU 
-can continue and to ensure that UKFast recognizes our marks.

-Attachment 3: Report from the VP of Fundraising  [Upayavira]
-
-At the request of Upayavira, this month’s report is being written by Melissa.
-
-Melissa has been continuing to follow-up on the renewals that have been sent
-out.  As a result of her persistence, some that we thought were “dead”, she
-has revived.
-
-We have received a Bronze payment from Cerner.  
-
-As of the writing of this, we’re awaiting an update from the Treasurer’s
-office on any new payments.
-
-Melissa has reached out to Sam to request the Tax#/EIN# be added to the quotes
-and invoices.
-
-Facebook has sent a Supplier ACH Enrollment Form, which Melissa has completed
-and sent off to them.
-
-In the process of adding “thank yous” to individual donors on the “Thanks”
-page of the website.

-
-The renewals for Yahoo! and Citrix will be going out soon, as they are up for
-renewal the first week of April.
-
-Although we’ve been making great progress, it’s clear that we still have a lot
-of work ahead of us.   I’ve (me, Melissa) actually been contemplating a better
-invoicing/accounting system to keep track of this.  I think it would be in our
-best interest if we purchase an invoicing/accounting system.  We might have to
-pay for a program, but it would be totally worth it in the long run.

-Attachment 4: Report from the VP of Marketing and Publicity  [Sally Khudairi]
-
-I. Budget: we remain on schedule and under budget. All vendor payments have

-Attachment 5: Report from the VP of Infrastructure  [Sam Ruby]
-
-
-New Karma:
-==========
-
-
-Finances:
-==========
-
-
-Board Action Items:
-===================
-
-
-Short Term Priorities:
-======================
-
-* Look into mac build slaves.
-
-
-* Converge on git.apache.org migration to eris. (Step 1 is merge git ->
-  git-wip on tyr) (opinions?)
-
-* Investigate / negotiate external code-signing capability, currently in talks
-  under NDA. INFRA-3991 is tracking the status, and a Webex call has taken
-  place.
-
-* Complete nagios-to-circonus migration for monitoring.
-
-* Continue to experiment with weekly team meetings via google hangout.
-
-* Explore the possibility of revamping the infra documents to have a more 
-  intuitive feel about them, improve readability.
-
-* Confluence Upgrade. Upgrade from 5.0.3 to latest. Hopefully will be less
-  painful this time around.  (Support case closed, nothing useful came from it
-  other than check the logs.)
-
-* Port tlp creation scripts over to new json-based design on whimsy.
-
-* Ensure all contractors are participating in on-call situations, minimally by
-  requiring cell-phone notification (via SMS, twitter, etc) for all circonus
-  alarms.
-
-* Explore better integration with GitHub that allows us to retain the same
-  information on the mailing list, so that vital discussions are recorded as
-  having taken place in the right places (if it didn't happen on the ML...).
-
-Long Range Priorities:
-======================
-
-* Choose a suitable technology for continued buildout of our virtual
-  hosting infra.  Right now we are on VMWare but it no longer is gratis
-  software for the ASF.
-
-* Continue gradually replacing gear we no longer have any hardware warranty
-  support for.
-
-* Formulate an effective process and surrounding policy documentation for
-  fulfilling the DMCA safe harbor provisions as they relate to Apache services.
-
-* Institute egress filtering on all mission-critical service hosts.

-
-
-General Activity:
-=================
-
-* Migrated dist.apache.org from backups of thor to eris.  Unfortunately a
-  dozen commits were naturally lost in the process.  Thanks to TRACI.NET for
-  providing additional bandwidth for this purpose.
-  <private>
-  qaStaH nuq?
-  </private>
-
-* Jira: Jira is now runnning on Apache Tomcat 8.0.0 (rather than 7.0.x). While
-  running on 8.0.x is unsupported by Atlassian, this is providing valuable
-  feedback to the Tomcat community. To mitigate the risk of running an
-  unsupported configuration, Jira is being monitored more closely than usual for
-  any problems and there is a plan in place to rollback to 7.0.x if necessary.
-
-* At the behest of committers, we have started working on a stronger
-  implementation of GitHub services, including 'vanity plates' for all Apache
-  committers on GitHub.  A method of interacting with GitHub Pull Requests and
-  comments has been completed, that both interacts with the GitHub interface
-  and retains all messages on the local mailing lists and JIRA instances for
-  record keeping. At the time of writing, we have 367 committers on the Apache
-  team on GitHub. We have made a blog entry about this at
-  http://s.apache.org/asfgithub which seems to have reached many projects
-  already.  Furthermore, the Incubator has been involved in the development of
-  this, and are thus also aware of its existence and use cases.
-
-* The new SSL wildcard was obtained from Thawte earlier this month, and will
-  be rolled out to services very soon. Thanks to jimjag this got the business
-  end of the deal done so we could actually get the cert in before the incumbent
-  expires.
-
-* All remaining SVN repos have now been upgraded to 1.8.
-
-* Resurrected thor (mail-search) after soliciting help from SMS for on-site
-  repairs.
-
-* Amended release policy to provide rationale and spent time explaining the new
-  section to members@.  See http://www.apache.org/dev/release#why
-
-* Work with Cordova on processing their historical releases to comport with
-  policy.

------------------------------------------
-Attachment 6: Report from the Apache Travel Assistance Committee  [Gavin McDonald]
-
-We had 26 applications submitted this time. Of those, based on the judges
-recommendations, the committee chose to accept 15 of these. Considering the
-tight timescales we've been compressed into, those numbers are actually
-pretty good.
-
-All 15 sucessful applicants have accepted, and we now have an almost
-complete set of flight / hotel / conference / dates / etc requirements from
-everyone. We're working with the travel agent to find the cheapest sensible
-flights for everyone, probably about half have been finalised now, rest
-expected soon. As with past conferences, we're booking non-refundable and
-non-changable tickets, and we're self-insuring for the event of someone not
-getting a visa or similar. We're ensuring everyone has their own travel
-insurance to cover medical costs especially, but also ideally cancellations
-in case they're ill or similar.
-
-We've 5 applicants who need to apply for visas, so these are our top
-priority.
-
-We have however hit a snag with getting the wire transfer to the Travel
-Agent, so she can ticket the flights we're happy with. We think we'll
-probably be fine to wait until early next week to ticket most flights, but
-for next time it'd be good if more people were able to approve transfers
-with the bank. If the delay looks set to increase, we'll just put more (or
-perhaps even all) on credit cards.
-
-On a related money note, only Gav and Melissa have access to
-/repos/private/financials/Bills/ to submit or track invoices. It would be
-good if all of the Travel Assisstance Committee could be given access too,
-since we do generate a fair number each year.

-Attachment 7: Report from the VP of W3C Relations  [Andy Seaborne]
-
-Nothing to report this month.
-
------------------------------------------
-Attachment 8: Report from the Apache Legal Affairs Committee  [Jim Jagielski]
-
-Relatively slow but steady month. No progress yet on Creative Commons
-(CC-BY 4.0) issue. Geir has offered to help regarding conversations
-with Oracle related to TCK access (renewals as well as new ones).
-We are operating under the understanding that we still can test against
-expired TCKs in the meantime.
-
-
------------------------------------------
-Attachment 9: Report from the Apache Security Team Project  [Mark Cox]
-
-There continues to be a steady stream of reports of various kinds
-arriving at security@ in Jan. These continue to be dealt with by
-the security team.
-
-Some effort was made this month to start to chase some old issues
-which we forwarded to projects but were there was no visible progress.
-One of these was escalated to the board after the reporter had no
-response for 6 months (the discussion was ongoing at the time of this
-report, but in general the difficulty is where a PMC does not have
-complete technical coverage of the project, in these cases we should
-make sure the PMC build a separate security team of the folks who can
-handle issues.  This is in no way an ASF-only issue, we see exactly
-the same problems with other upstreams including Linux kernel etc.)

-Attachment H: Report from the Apache Cocoon Project  [Thorsten Scherler]
-
-Apache Cocoon 3 is a major rewrite of Cocoon 2.2. Like Cocoon 2 it
-is based around the concept of pipelines and sitemaps and it is
-very similar to Cocoon 2.2 in many respects but is slimmed down and
-designed to be easily used with Java code (= no frameworks required!).

-not subscribed to the board mailing which I fixed. Further I updated
-irs-disclosures.txt to my best knowledge however Simone had not been in this
-doc so I used a approx. date.

-  Most recent addition: 2009-06-09
-
-General status:
-  The most recent release is 0.9 on 2011-02-07.
-
-  No activity on the user mail list.
-
-  The only activity on the dev mail list was me doing a few issue tracker
-  comments to show people some easy things that they could do to help the
-  project to move forward.
-
-  We received a request from a maintainer endeavouring to enable the Homebrew
-  package manager to handle Forrest, beyond their current workaround. I did
-  explain to our project what needs to happen. There has been no response.
-
-  The project was asked to review our situation regarding the recently
-  revised branding guidelines. No-one commented that they have done so.
-
-  At this quarter, eight PMC members responded to my draft report. This
-  confirms that there are sufficient people hanging around for us to
-  potentially be able to make a decision or encourage new contributors.
-
-  The draft report did re-start a small discussion on private@ list about the
-  state of the project. People were reminded about the outcome of the last
-  time that this arose, i.e. it is okay for the project to be quiet, as long
-  as it is still able to make decisions. People were asked to make effort on
-  the dev mail list, and to assist with project tasks, and reminded about the
-  need for a release.
-
-Security issues reported:
-  None.
-
-Progress of the project:
-  Enabled per-project configuration of Cocoon error handling.
-
-  Updated our JSch supporting product.

-    for Apache HBase, a NoSQL data store. It is accessed as a JDBC driver
-    and enables querying and managing HBase tables using SQL. 
-
-* Miscellaneous
-
-  * The issue of how best to integrate with GitHub is a recurring topic of
-    discussion.  Infra added a new feature -- forwarding of comments on pull
-    requests to dev lists -- which was well received.  However, as GitHub's
-    interface is an external commercial service rather than something we run
-    on our own hardware, it is difficult to ensure that communications
-    will be archived, requiring additional vigilance from PMCs.
-
-  * A proposal for Hoya, an application to deploy and manage existing
-    distributed applications in a YARN cluster, was discussed at length but
-    has not yet been voted on.

-Shepherd/Mentor notes:
-
-  John Ament (johndament):
-
-    Droids is a long standing podling, with a robust code base but without
-    much need for frequent releases.  I think graduating into an existing
-    TLP (not their own TLP) would be a good resolution, it helps avoid some
-    of the over head of many binding votes to carry on while still
-    maintaining an area to work in.  The people working on droids were fast
-    to respond and give feedback on what's happening, but like is mentioned
-    the list is not very active (in the past 6 months, the main
-    conversations going on were around status of the project).

-log4cxx2
-
-Logging for C++
-
-log4cxx2 has been incubating since 2013-12-09.
-
-Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
-
-  1. We probably need to decide what's an acceptable platform/compiler
-     list, sort out any remaining hiccups, and then move towards a
-     release.
-  2. We need to publish the project site with updated content to
-     reflect the new status and fix documentation bugs.
-  3. We need to make a broader use of the ASF infrastructure
-     (notably the CI, as well as improved management of the Jira
-     site - notably with triaging), and establish a roadmap for
-     the next releases.
-
-Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
-aware of?
-
-  We are stuck on INFRA-7209 and how to properly publish the project
-  site.
-
-How has the community developed since the last report?
-
-  The committers are still getting acquainted with each other and the
-  foundation. There have been some discussions about how to develop
-  within the team of committers already, like using a CI, how
-  to deal with issues regarding a changelog, which fixes should be
-  covered by our first incubation release etc.
-  Moderation of the list seems to work, there were some support
-  requests which were answered and problems introduced by commits on
-  trunk discussed.
-
-How has the project developed since the last report?
-
-  Some known bugs were fixed already and available patches applied,
-  which is work in progress for the new release. It has been suggested
-  to schedule most of the remaining available patches for an upcoming
-  release of 0.11.0 to include as much content which has been provided
-  over the years as possible.
-
-Date of last release:
-
-  2008-04-03 was the official, pre-incubation 0.10.0

-store.  It is accessed as a JDBC driver and enables querying and managing
-HBase tables using SQL.
-
-Phoenix has been incubating since 12/11/2013.
-
-Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
-
-  1) Perform initial release out of apache incubator followed up quickly
-     by two new releases
-  2) Make our customers successful and prove value of Phoenix+HBase over
-     other alternatives
-  3) Attract new committers to the project
-
-Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
-aware of?
-
-The below is informational for the IPMC (no need to forward the board):
-
-  We've been waiting for our Github issues to be imported into our Apache
-  JIRA but it is taking a while. We're considering doing the import
-  ourselves, as we're starting to see duplicate JIRAs and continue to have
-  to point users back to our old Github issues.

-Attachment AF: Report from the Apache ManifoldCF Project  [Karl Wright]
-
-Project description
-==============
-
-ManifoldCF is an effort to provide an open source framework for connecting
-source content repositories like Microsoft Sharepoint and EMC Documentum, to
-target repositories or indexes, such as Apache Solr, OpenSearchServer or
-ElasticSearch. ManifoldCF also defines a security model for target
-repositories that permits them to enforce source-repository security
-policies.
-
-Releases
-========
-
-ManifoldCF graduated from the Apache Incubator on May 16, 2012.  Since then,
-there have been five major releases, including a 1.4 release on October 28,
-2013, and a point release 1.4.1 on November 16, 2014.  A new major release
-(1.5) is being voted on at this time.
-
-Committers and PMC membership
-========================
-
-The last committer and PMC member we signed up was Minoru Osuka (minoru), on
-January 10, 2013.  We voted in a new committer and PMC member in May, but he
-declined to accept the committership due to his company's policies.  Other
-contributors have been approached, but have also declined to accept
-consideration for possible committership. The most recent of these
-encounters took place in September.
-
-We are still not entirely sure why people who are obviously interested and to
-some degree committed to the project seem unwilling to become full committers.
-I suspect that corporate restrictions make this a challenge in some cases.
-Also, we seem to be interacting more with contractors than with employees
-recently, and it may well be that contractors have less interest in a
-long-standing relationship with our project.  Nevertheless, we have rumors of
-significant contributions being prepared by at least three individuals; if any
-of these contributions are made, then we will likely offer the individuals
-involved committerships.
-
-Mailing list activity
-==============
-
-Mailing list has been active, with a wide range of topics.  Most of our
-connectors now have significant use cases and constituencies.  Dev list
-comments centered around voting, extensions to the SharePoint connector,
-people looking for integration advice, etc.  ManifoldCF also participated in
-Google Summer of Code, and MCF committers mentored one student developer
-through end of September 2013.
-
-External contributions and even committer contributions have been significant
-this quarter, despite heavy workload among most of the committer community.
-
-I am unaware of any mailing-list question that has gone unanswered.
-
-Outstanding issues
-==================
-
-None.
-
-Branding
-========
-
-We have reviewed the site branding guidelines and believe we are now
-compliant with these, with the possible exception of (TM) signs in logos
-from other Apache products that don't have any such marks.  We have
-not yet scheduled time to address this issue.

-Attachment AO: Report from the Apache Qpid Project  [Gordon Sim]
-
-Apache Qpid™ is a project focused on creating software based on the
-Advanced Message Queuing Protocol (AMQP), currently providing a
-protocol engine library, message brokers written in C++ and Java, and
-client libraries for C++, Java (including JMS), .Net, Python, Perl and
-Ruby.
-
-* Releases:
-
-Qpid Proton 0.6 was released on 16th January.
-
-Qpid Dispatch Router 0.1 was released on 17th January.
-
-The Qpid 0.26 release vote has concluded (we have changed the
-publishing process we useand publication is currently waiting on
-infra-7201, but should be complete soon). The previous Qpid release
-(0.24) was in 7th Sep, 2013.
-
-* Community:
-
-The main developer and user lists continue to be active. JIRAs are
-being raised and addressed.
-
-No new committers were added since last report (November 2013). The
-last committer added was Pavel Moravec on 30th Aug, 2013. The last PMC
-members to be added were Andrew Stitcher, Chuck Rolke, Justin Ross and
-Keith Wall, who were originally voted in during September 2011. It was
-brought to our attention however that there was no record of
-notification to - or acknowledgement from, as at that time required -
-the board at that time. This was rectified by a vote in Dec 2013 and
-an acknowledgement was received from Jim Jagielski.
-
-* Development Highlights:
-
-AMQP 1.0 continues to be an area of activity as issues are reported
-(often in conjunction with other AMQP 1.0 implementations) and fixed.
-
-Development is underway on a new AMQP 1.0 based JMS client, in line
-with the JMS Mapping being developed at OASIS.
-
-The existing JMS over 1.0 client and the java broker now support
-WebSockets, tracking the specification for that being developed at
-OASIS.
-
-Though not part of Qpid per se, an AMQP based NMS implementation
-(using qpid::messaging under the covers) has been developed in
-conjunction with the ActiveMQ project, increasing options for
-interoperability between the two projects.
-
-Dispatch Router added support for both competing and non-competing
-patterns, based on patterns specified in the configuration file. (Will
-be part of 0.2 release). The Dispatch Router is tracking the
-specification development for AMQP management.
-
-Proton Messenger added support for dynamic nodes. (Included in 0.6
-release). Some ideas have also been discussed to simplify using the
-Proton engine API, namely adding an event-oriented interface and some
-generic container support.
-
-* Issues:
-
-There are no items requiring board attention at this time.

- 4. Executive Officer Reports
-
-    A. Chairman [Brett]
-
-       At the last board meeting, we agreed on May 27 and 29 as the dates for
-       the Annual Members Meeting. I will send out the formal notice to
-       members and call for nominations of new members and the board in the
-       next couple of weeks, once we're inside the required 60 day period.
-
-       ApacheCon is coming up soon. Unfortunately, I'm not able to attend
-       this year, though I'm interested to hear which other directors will be
-       present. Given the timing, I don't expect there's a need for the board
-       to formally meet face to face.
-
-    B. President [Ross]
-       
-       ApacheCon is progressing well, see EVP report for details. Given
-       the extremely short timeline on this event
-       I think we can consider this a success. It looks to me like 
-       we will have an event that is at least as good as, if not better,
-       than most previous events. When we add to this the lack of drama
-       created by the producer I would like to think this is the start
-       of a healthy relationship that will, over time, develop a
-       valuable conference model that brings value to all parties.
-       
-       Our EA has been (mostly) consumed by ApacheCon items this month.
-       We did discuss a difficulty Melissa has with respect to visibility
-       into sponsor payments. It is difficult for Melissa to establish
-       whether a payment has been made or not and thus to establish
-       whether she ought to send a nag mail. On occasion this has been 
-       held up when our volunteers with access to this information are
-       otherwise engaged. With the excellent work VP Fundraising and 
-       Melissa have put into creating a process for managing sponsorships
-       this is now the most common bottleneck. I believe our treasurer is 
-       looking into options with respect to providing Melissa with timely 
-       access without adding additional overhead to the role of Treasurer. 
-       I look forward to a solution in the future.
-       
-       The Audit has not progressed significantly. As this was (once again)
-       a priority for this year I'm disappointed with the progress since
-       I personally undertook to see this through. I intend to explore 
-       the blocker over the next month since I have
-       finally landed in my own home now, so no more moves for many
-       years (I hope). 
-       
-       Trademarks continues to increase its demands on Shane whist
-       Shane continues to look for ways to streamline the process. 
-       Our EA has indicated that she is keen to help out with the 
-       process but still feels a little unclear as to where the
-       boundaries lie around what she can safely do to help. I 
-       hope to discuss this with Shane at ApacheCon in April. From
-       my perspective if we can free up even an hour a month of
-       Shane's time this will be productive as Shane is doing such
-       a superb job of refining out policies and practices in the
-       little time available.
-       
-       There is no report from VP Fundraising at the time of writing.
-       However Upayavira and I did touch base earlier this month and
-       discussed the state of Fundraising. Whilst Upayavira himself is
-       mostly engaged elsewhere it seems all sponsorship renewals are
-       under control thanks to the support of (mostly) Melissa and 
-       Sally. Upayavira's role seems to be one of oversight at present.
-       
-       Infra report no significant surprises this month but note that
-       the new Git features have been well received. 28 projects have 
-       adopted them in the first month, which has resulted in a tenfold
-       increase in git related traffic on various apache.org email 
-       lists. As we enter budget planning season I have specifically
-       asked infra to consider whether they ought to make a one-off
-       investment in some specialist support that will allow them to
-       better scale resources as the foundation continues to grow. This
-       suggestion was well received as some members of the infra team
-       feel there is an element of fire-fighting that can sometimes
-       slow longer term projects.
-       
-       TAC reports 26 applications, of which 15 were funded at an
-       estimated cost of $32k. This is both more applications and
-       approvals in the past. The process was quicker than in the past
-       though not without it's hiccups. Especially with respect to 
-       paying for flights. Thanks to Nick Burch who stepped in to
-       solve the problem by offering his personal card (which was the
-       reported fall-back position last month). I can confirm that
-       Nick was promptly reimbursed for this expense. Melissa reports
-       that she will seek to make recommendations for streamlining the
-       process for future events now that she has been a core part of
-       the TAC team.     
-

-    C. Treasurer [Chris]
-
-       The Treasurer's Office worked with Phil Steitz to get Amazon Payment
-       account data in the purview of the monthly data collection process.
-       This is the first month that will include a tag for Amazon payments.
-
-       Remittance to a TAC committee member for fronting the payments for
-       ACNA 2014 flights was completed.
-
-       Chris has been in touch with the contractor company for treasurer
-       services referred by Jim. Treasurer's Office has requested feedback
-       from the board and will arrive at a decision soon. Jim is awaiting
-       the decision from an audit perspective as this will affect the way
-       he proceeds with the audit.
-
-       The President's Office inquired to see the difficulty in providing
-       account access for WFS and other financials necessary for sponsorship
-       in-transit payment inquiries.  The Treasurer's Office is considering
-       how best to respond to the request.
-
-       Finally, the last request for transfer out of PayPal is in transit,
-       completing an activity desired years ago, to completely move the
-       bulk of ASF money out of PayPal and into WFS. Thanks to Upayavira
-       and Sam and others for their help in making this happen.

-    D. Secretary [Craig]
-
-       February was a short and relatively light month for incoming 
-       documents. 42 iclas, two cclas, and four grants were received 
-       and filed.
-
-
-    E. Executive Vice President [Rich]
-
-        With ApacheCon now less than a month away, registrations are
-        progressing well, but rather behind my hopes. We were coming up
-        on 300 registrations when the Early Bird price expired. (I'll
-        hopefully update numbers prior to the meeting.) This is ahead
-        of where we were at this point last year, but still
-        disappointing given the expanded scope of the event. More
-        importantly, however, the producer is happy with the numbers,
-        and I view this event as an investment in the next event, so if
-        they're happy, I'm happy.
-
-        Everyone has been very helpful, with everyone I've asked for
-        assistance immediately stepping up and helping out. I'm looking
-        forward to doing this again, but with more lead time.
-
-        Meanwhile, we're still looking at venues in Europe, the
-        difficulty being that the OpenStack Summit in Paris hasn't
-        announced dates yet, and so we have to avoid both options that
-        they have announced, which greatly reduces our available venues.
-        Dates we are currently looking at are December 7 in Prague or
-        November 16 in Rome. Each of these have drawbacks, and we hope
-        to have something decided by the end of this month.

-Attachment 1: Report from the Executive Assistant  [Melissa Warnkin]
-
-Daily monitoring of all email activity (ea@, fundraising@, trademarks@,
-treasurer@, comdev@, and board@) and following-up with appropriate personnel
-
-    ApacheCon:  90% (includes TAC)
-        Very busy month; progressing well - Rich will provide more information
-        Researched items for this year's giveaways (to be used for ACNA,
-          OSCON, ACEU and community events throughout the year) and awaiting
-          shipment.
-        Assisted Rich with helping "spread the word".  Please forgive the
-          inundation of emails received on March 5th - I misunderstood Rich's
-          instructions and sent an email for each Project and Track to comdev@
-          rather than to dev@PROJECT.  Well, on the plus side, ya can't say we
-          haven't gotten the word out!! ;)
-        Currently working on the booth logistics
-
-    TAC:
-
-        Sent all rejection and acceptance letters out
-        All flights and hotel reservations have been made and sent to the
-          successful applicants
-        All documentation required for the applicants needing a visa have been
-          sent.  4 out of the 5 needing a visa have successfully received it;
-          the 5th has a visa appointment the week of March 10th.
-        I've submitted a direct bill application to the Westin for the TAC'ers
-          and staff lodging (rather than doing a wire transfer) - awaiting
-          approval on that from the Westin.
-        Fielded a very large amount of inquiries from the TAC'ers.  A handful
-          of folks were full of questions and uncertainty on what to do and
-          how to proceed; with a little TLC, I was able to guide them through
-          the entire process and ease their nerves.
-
-    Fundraising:  10%
-
-        Continuing to follow-up on renewals sent out
-            Working with the Treasurer's Office for a solution for me to gain
-              visibility into payments.  This will alleviate some of the
-              workload on their end, as well as enable me to gain the
-              information needed in a more timely manner for following up on
-              the past-due invoices.
-            Sam has fixed the info in svn so it is now readable.  Sam and
-              Chris will determine what is needed from WF in order for me to
-              gain read access into the account so that I can have "real-time"
-              info (the info in svn is only posted after Chris writes his
-              board report).
-        Sent out invoices for the sponsors due for renewal
-        A great big thank you to Sally, who has been in communications with
-          our Platinums.  As a result, we've obtained a PO# for Google's
-          Platinum renewal, and I've submitted the invoice through their
-          online portal (invoice is showing as approved; just awaiting
-          payment), and I've sent out the Yahoo! renewal.  She is awaiting
-          responses from Microsoft (they just came off of vacation, so she's
-          giving them adequate time to catch up) and Facebook.

-Attachment 2: Report from the VP of Brand Management  [Shane Curcuru]
-
-trademarks@ traffic continues to grow and bring up new issues.  It's 
-been very helpful to have a couple of members really step up to help 
-and thoughtfully answer various questions; David Nalley has been 
-especially helpful in this regard.
-
-Started a discussion on ways to improve services that trademarks@ 
-and the ASF offers to our projects, although there's limited feedback 
-so far there on some new ideas.
-
-I updated the Project Independence requirements in response to issues 
-raised recently with the focus of the page:
-
-  http://community.apache.org/projectIndependence.html
-
-Had a brief but productive call at DLAPiper request; they have a number 
-of specific documents almost ready to offer to help improve and simplify 
-our brand policing and education activities that I'm looking forward to.
-
-DLAPiper submitted a US registration for LUCENE.
-
-DLAPiper is submitting an international registration for HADOOP covering 
-EU and several key first-to-file countries.

-Attachment 3: Report from the VP of Fundraising  [Upayavira]
-
-As noted by Ross in his President report, I am glad to report that the 
-VP Fundraising role has become an oversight one. Melissa is handling most
-of the renewal work, and Sally is handling the higher value sponsors.
-Phil is handling thanking our PayPal/Amazon donors.
-
-The work required for the VP Fundraising appears to have dropped to a 
-much more manageable level for a volunteer, thanks to the work of the
-above named.
-

-Attachment 5: Report from the VP of Infrastructure  [Sam Ruby]
-
-New Karma:
-==========
-mdrob added to infra-interest.
-
-
-Finances:
-==========
-
-
-Operations Action Items:
-========================
-
-
-Short Term Priorities:
-======================
-
-* Look into mac build slaves.
-
-
-* Converge on git.apache.org migration to eris. (Step 1 is merge git -> git-wip on tyr)
-  (opinions?)
-
-* Investigate / negotiate external code-signing capability, currently in talks
-  under NDA. INFRA-3991 is tracking the status, and a Webex call has taken place.
-
-* Complete nagios-to-circonus migration for monitoring.
-
-* Continue to experiment with weekly team meetings via google hangout.
-
-* Explore the possibility of revamping the infra documents to have a more 
-  intuitive feel about them, improve readability.
-
-* Confluence Upgrade. Upgrade from 5.0.3 to latest. Hopefully will be less
-  painful this time around. 
-  (Support case closed, nothing useful came from it other than check the logs.)
-
-* Port tlp creation scripts over to new json-based design on whimsy.
-
-
-Long Range Priorities:
-======================
-
-* Choose a suitable technology for continued buildout of our virtual
-  hosting infra.  Right now we are on VMWare but it no longer is gratis
-  software for the ASF.
-
-* Continue gradually replacing gear we no longer have any hardware warranty
-  support for.
-
-* Formulate an effective process and surrounding policy documentation for
-  fulfilling the DMCA safe harbor provisions as they relate to Apache services.
-
-* Institute egress filtering on all mission-critical service hosts.

-
-
-General Activity:
-=================
-
-* The new GitHub features have been well received, with 28 projects already
-  onboard with the new features in February alone. As a result, the number of
-  github related messages on the public ASF mailing lists have risen from 304
-  in January to 3,616 in February, with expectations to exceed 5,000 in
-  March. There has been a discussion on whether to transition from opt-in to
-  opt-out on these features, but for the time being, it remains opt-in. 
-
-* Instituted a weekly cron to inform private@cordova about the current list of
-  committers not on the PMC, which should be the empty set.  Currently about a
-  third of the pmc is impacted with no indication that this will ever be
-  addressed by the chair- the requisite notices have already been sent to
-  board@.
-
-* Discussed the current state of affairs with our build farms as they relate to
-  TrafficServer's needs.  We intend to address this with increased funding in
-  next year's budget.
-
-* Received a report about several compromised webpages hosted by VM's
-  associated with OfBiz.  In the process of working with the PMC to correct
-  this situation.

-Attachment 6: Report from the Apache Travel Assistance Committee  [Gavin McDonald]
-
-The Travel Assistance Committee exists to help those that would like to
-attend ApacheCon events, but are unable to do so for financial reasons.
-
-Overall Activity since last report
-
-With ApacheCon NA 2014 quickly approaching things have been in full swing.
-Announcements regarding TAC funding opportunities were disseminated around
-16th January 2014. Announcements were sent to pmcs@, committers@, the TAC
-website and the Linux Foundation in an attempt to reach a wider audience.
-Announcements were also made on social media channels.
-From the above, TAC received some 26 applications which is a noticeably
-larger figure than received in recent times. Based on judging by various
-TAC members and a subsequent judges call, an estimation was made that
-applicant reported flight costs, hotels, subsistence and conference fees
-we're likely to total ~$32k for 15 successful applicants.
-Further to the dissemination of acceptance and rejection letters, work has
-been focused around the booking of flights, accommodation and Visa
-referrals for successful TAC applicants.
-
-How has the community developed since the last report?
-
-No new members have joined TAC since last reporting.
-
-Other content:
-
-Based on feedback we received from ApacheCon 2013 in Portland, we have
-arranged a 'Welcome Dinner' (as oppose to Breakfast) for TAC'ers. This way
-we can ensure everyone is comfortable with the accommodation as well as the
-ApacheCon experience prior to the first day of the conference.
-
-N.B. We would also advise board@ to see the TAC section of the Post
-Executive Assistant's Report. This contains a substantial amount of
-information based on work undertaken by EA.

-Attachment A: Report from the Apache Abdera Project  [Ant Elder]
-
-Apache Abdera provides Java implementations of the IETF Atom Syndication
-Format and Publishing Protocol specifications.
-
-Abdera is very quiet, almost dormant. There was one bug report recently, 
-no one has had a chance to investigate it yet, other than that there has 
-been little activity in the project. It might be worth thinking about 
-moving to the attic but while there are still a few PMC members watching
-the lists I think its probably ok to keep the project alive for now.
-
-The last release was one year ago, the last committer / PMC member 
-addition was Nov 2011.
-
-No board issues.

-Some other issues have been fixed and the process of proposing parts
-of the codebase to the Apache Tika community is the main focus.
-One issue which is currently being worked on (and nearly complete)
-is to migrate the 'mime' module over to Apache Tika. Please see
-the below Jira ticket.
-https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-1208.
-Due to interest/committer resources from within Any23 progress
-on this issue is slower than preferred HOWEVER it is NOT dead

-RELEASES
-* The last release of Apache Bigtop was version 0.7.0, released on Nov 5, 2013
-* Bigtop 0.8.0 is the next release scheduled for Q2 of 2014, based on Hadoop 2.3
-  - release is delayed from originally planned Q1 of 2014 because of the scope
-    of the changes
-
-CURRENT ACTIVITY
-* Development activity continues as can be seen from the following report:
-     https://issues.apache.org/jira/issues/?filter=12326778
-  (since last board report, Dec 2013)
-* Bigtop 0.8.0 is the next release the community is working on
-* Groovy language runtime environment has been added to Bigtop
-* Latest version of Hadoop 2.3 is being added to Bigtop
-
-COMMUNITY

-- Total of 115 subscribers to the developer list
-- Total of 132 subscribers to the user list
-- Total of 24 subscribers to the announce list
-- Total of 25 committers
-- Total of 20 PMC members
-
-ISSUES
-
-* The Apache Bigtop PMC has voted to recommend 
-     Konstantin Boudnik <cos@apache.org> 
-  be appointed to the office of Vice President, Apache Bigtop
-* PMC has voted on and approved establishing term limits for
-  the position of PMC Chair. Adopted: a position of an Apache Bigtop Chair
-  gets elected for a year. After a year passes it is expected of the active
-  Chair to start a [DISCUSS] email thread on private@bigtop.apache.org asking
-  PMC members to nominate themselves for the next year. It is perfectly
-  acceptable for the active chair to nominate him or herself. There is no
-  limit on the number of terms that one person can server as an Apache Bigtop
-  Chair. Each term, however is limited to one year.

-Community & Development
-=======================
-
-Two new committee members have been added this quarter:
-
-* SaintGermain (1st January 2014)
-* Antony Semonella (9th January 2014)
-
-Bloodhound is once again looking to become involved with GSoC this year and
-the community has prepared a number of sample projects for students interest.
-This has already seen six students discussing projects on the dev mailing
-list who all seem to have been engaged with promptly in order to hold their
-interest. We have three PMC members who have put themselves forward for
-mentorship. This has also being used as an informal opportunity for those
-mentors to discuss GSoC with local students which may benefit projects beyond
-Bloodhound with potential students.
-
-Development effort has increased again after a slow January but the mailing
-list traffic has remained healthy with new contributors appearing fairly
-regularly. This activity has obviously been boosted significantly by the GSoC
-related discussions.

-Attachment H: Report from the Apache Buildr Project  [Alex Boisvert]
-
-Apache Buildr is a Ruby-based build system for Java-based applications,
-including support for Scala, Groovy and a growing number of JVM languages and
-tools.
-
-Our last release (1.4.15) happened in November. Development and community
-activity (mailing lists, bug reports, etc.) has been low since then. Our last
-committer/PMC changes happened in October.
-
-In February, we discussed and agreed to move to git as our primary
-version-control system, as well as "turning on" the improved GitHub integration
-(https://blogs.apache.org/infra/entry/improved_integration_between_apache_and).
-
-We have no issues that require board attention.

-Attachment I: Report from the Apache BVal Project  [Matt Benson]
-
-The Apache BVal project implements the Java EE Bean Validation specification(s)
-and related extensions, and became a top-level project of the foundation on
-February 15, 2012.
-
-### Releases ###
-No new releases.
-
-### Activity ###
-Development has proceeded at what can charitably be termed a crawl for the past
-year while BVal's team have been expending their volunteer energies elsewhere.
-A large obstacle has just been removed, however, in the form of the Apache
-Commons Weaver component, which has just seen its 1.0 release. This project had
-been one of the aforementioned time/energy sinks and was developed for the
-express purpose of solving one of BVal's long-standing design problems; speaking
-on behalf of the PMC I am hopeful that we can now resume a respectable
-development velocity and finally make our 1.0 and 1.1 (implementing,
-respectively, the same versions of the Java Bean Validation specification)
-releases in the near future.
-
-### Community  ###
-No changes in community. Romain Manni-Bucau was added to the PMC during the
-previous quarter after having been elected a committer the quarter before that.
-
-### Branding ###
-Nothing to report.
-
-### Legal ###
-No concerns at present.
-
-### Infrastructure ###
-Nothing needed at the moment.

-Attachment N: Report from the Apache CloudStack Project  [Chip Childers]
-
-DESCRIPTION
-Apache CloudStack is open source software designed to deploy and manage 
-large networks of virtual machines, as a highly available, highly scalable 
-Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud computing platform.
-
-ISSUES
-
-The board has a resolution on it's agenda for this meeting to change
-the Apache CloudStack PMC chair (special order B).
-
-CURRENT ACTIVITY
-* The community is finalizing our Apache CloudStack 4.3.0 release. This 
-  release was delayed from the community's initial target for a release date, 
-  due to an issue with how we were treating a specific dependency during the 
-  default build of the software. This issue was identified by the PMC and has 
-  been resolved. We are actively testing our latest RC now.
-* The project was informed that the Citrix-hosted realhostip.com DNS resolver
-  service will be going offline this summer. It is currently used by 
-  CloudStack installations as a default installation configuration option. 
-  Best practice for production installations include changing this to a 
-  local solution, however we are aware that many installations do not make
-  this change. We will be informing our user community of this news during 
-  our 4.3.0 release announcement, and have already committed a patch that 
-  removes the need for this external service from 4.3.0 onward.
-* The project is about to go into feature freeze for Apache CloudStack 4.4.0.
-* The documentation has made the proposed transition from the publican 
-  docbook format to .rst format. It is too early to tell if this had the 
-  desired effect on lowering the barriers for user contributions.
-* The community is working with TLF to organize the upcoming CCC14NA 
-  conference in Denver, with the event obviously being co-located with 
-  ApacheCon NA.
-

-Apache Continuum is an enterprise-ready continuous integration server with
-features such as automated builds, release management, role-based security,
-and integration with popular build tools and source control management
-systems.
-
-The heightened activity cited in the last report resulted in a temporarily

-Apache Flex is an application framework for easily building Flash-based
-applications for mobile devices, the browser and desktop.
-
-RELEASES
--Apache Flex SDK 4.11.0 was released on 10/28/13.
--Voting is in progress for SDK 4.12.0
--Apache Flex Installer 2.7.0 was also released on 10/28/13.
--Voting is also in progress for Installer 3.0.0 which has the new
- capability to use Ant script syntax to drive the install process.
-
-ACTIVITY
-Activity in Apache Flex continues to be in two main areas:  improvements
-to the existing Adobe Flash Platform-dependent code base, including the
-releases listed above, and prototyping ways to create a version of Flex
-that is independent from the Adobe Flash Platform.  There is another group
-working on Maven-related tools for the existing code base.
-
-In the past three months we've seen:
-- Continued JIRA activity (more bugs raised than resolved however)
-- More committers becoming active again.
-- Fewer new folks contributing and eventually becoming committers.
-
-Other highlights:
--Over 70 bugs have been fixed in 4.12.0.
--Three committers will be giving presentations on Flex at ApacheCon 2014.
-
-Code Donation Update
--FlexUnit was donated but has yet to be formulated into a release.
--Swiz donation is still pending.  The donator has not filed the paperwork.
--BlazeDS donation paperwork was submitted but the code is not yet in the
- repo because it was discovered that some pieces were missing.  We hope to
- get the missing pieces soon.  The missing pieces are stuck in IP review at
- Adobe.
-
-COMMUNITY
--One person who has been helpful on the mailing list and in JIRA was
- invited as a committer and declined.
--No other candidates for new committer or promotions of committers to PMC
- in this reporting period.
--A non-committer claims to be starting on a book about Apache Flex.
--Latest analytics include over 3000 hits per day on the website during the
- work week (less on weekends).
--There were more than 14,000 installs of 4.11.0 since its release.
--It feels like there is more interest from users based on activity on
- users@.
--Slight decrease in activity-level and number of committers working on SDK
- repo but more activity and committers working on FlexJS.
--Several Apache Flex committers will be presenting at the 360 Flex
- conference in May
-
-TRADEMARKS
--The new version of Flex is going to be called FlexJS.  We have begun
- associating the TM symbol with FlexJS per advice from trademarks@

-Attachment Z: Report from the Apache Gump Project  [Stefan Bodewig]
-
-Apache Gump is a cross-project continuous integration server.  Gump's
-intention isn't so much to be a CI server but rather a vehicle that
-makes people look beyond their project's boundaries and helps the
-projects to collaborate.
-
-Gump is written in Python and supports several build tools and version
-control systems.  The Apache installation of Gump builds ASF as well
-as non-ASF projects and their dependencies.  It started in the Java
-part of the foundation but also builds projects like APR, HTTPd and
-XMLUnit.NET.
-
-== Summary ==
-
-Gump seems to create useful results for the few projects that use it.
-Activity spiked when JUnit dropped Ant build support, very little
-activity apart from that.
-
-== Releases ==
-
-Gump has never done any releases.  One reason for this is that the ASF
-installations of Gump work on the latest code base almost all of the
-time following its "integrate everything continuously" philosophy.
-
-== Activity ==
-
-The JUnit team decided to drop the Ant build and switch to "Maven
-only".  Gump used Ant to build JUnit and the migration caused a few
-hiccups along the way.  Three different people modified a few
-descriptors over a period of several days until things were back to
-normal.  No other activity.
-
-== Changes to the Roster ==
-
-All ASF committers have write access to the metadata that configure
-the ASF installations.
-
-No new committers to the code base, no changes to the PMC.  The most
-recent addition to the PMC was in December 2006 when we added Sander
-Temme.

---------------------
-BatchEE
-
-BatchEE projects aims to provide a JBatch implementation (aka JSR352) and a
-set of useful extensions for this specification.
-
-BatchEE has been incubating since 2013-10-03.
-
-Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
-
-  1. Build a Community
-     We really need to work on this. Mark Struberg will hold a talk 
-     about BatchEE on JAX in early May 2014 in Mainz
-
-  2. Ship stable releases
-     This looks good so far. We are pretty close on getting 
-     a first release out.
-
-  3. Establish an ASF culture. 
-     We also need to work on this front. The committer circle does fine
-     on the technical side but we really need to raise attention about 
-     the importance of structural things like not pulling in too many
-     foreign dependencies and shipping board reports in time.
-
-
-Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
-aware of?
-
-  None yet. We still have to work on a few things but nothing critical.  I
-  will make sure we raise issues if we cannot solve them.
-
-
-How has the community developed since the last report?
-
-  The community does not yet grow much in terms of committers.  There are
-  quite a few interested users though and the project gets used in
-  production projects already.
-
-How has the project developed since the last report?
-
-  We have missed reporting for 2 consecutive months due to time constraints
-  of the involved leaders. We will report the next 3 month to show our
-  commitment
-
-Date of last release: 
-
-  none yet. We are preparing to release 0.1-incubating within 
-  the next 2 month.
-
-When were the last committers or PMC members elected?
-  
-  We still have the initial set of committers.

-DataFu
-
-DataFu provides a collection of Hadoop MapReduce jobs and functions in
-higher level languages based on it to perform data analysis. It provides
-functions for common statistics tasks (e.g. quantiles, sampling), PageRank,
-stream sessionization, and set and bag operations. DataFu also provides
-Hadoop jobs for incremental data processing in MapReduce.
-
-DataFu has been incubating since 2014-01-05.
-
-Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
-
-  1. Building ASF community
-  2. Release
-  3. Remaining incubator paperwork
-
-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?
-
-  More contributions have been received from Jian Wang, who has also 
-  been voted in as the newest committer and PPMC member.  A talk
-  is planned at the Apache Pig meetup to be held on March 14th.
-
-How has the project developed since the last report?
-
-  Three JIRAs have been opened, four have been closed.  The project has 
-  migrated from Ant to the Gradle build system, which will make it easier 
-  to add libraries for Hive, Crunch, etc.
-
-Date of last release: 
-
-  None. Second month of incubation.

-DeviceMap
-
-Apache DeviceMap is a data repository containing device information, images
-and other relevant information for all sorts of mobile devices, e.g.
-smartphones and tablets. While the focus is initially on that data, APIs
-will also be created to use and manage it.
-
-DeviceMap has been incubating since 2012-01-03.
-
-Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
-
-  1. Make a release 
-  2. Get more contributors 
-  3. Grow the community
-
-Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be aware
-of?
-
-  DeviceMap's activity is very low and has actually gone down in the last
-  few months.
-
-  The next step is probably for the podling to consider whether it can
-  reasonably expect to grow a community and get more active, or whether it's
-  not active enough to graduate as an Apache project.
-
-How has the community developed since the last report?
-
-  No changes.
-
-How has the project developed since the last report?
-
-  Minimal changes only.

-Shepherd/Mentor notes:
-
-  Roman Shaposhnik (rvs):
-
-    I will agree that the community activity is very low and the trend is
-    not positive. I would encourage mentors to probe around the question of
-    potential retirement.

-Kalumet
-
-Kalumet a complete environment manager and deployer including J2EE
-environments (application servers, applications, etc), softwares, and
-resources.
-
-Kalumet has been incubating since 2011-09-20.
-
-Community Development:
-
-  Apache Kalumet 0.6-incubating version has been released.
-
-  We are in the way of promoting the documentation on the website.
-
-Project Development:
-
-  We are preparing the 0.7-incubating release.
-
-  Local branches have been created containing:
-
-  - new model and REST API
-  - new webconsole (remove of Echo framework)
-
-Before Graduation (most important issues to address in the move towards
-graduation):
-
-  - The documentation has been updated and aligned with the 0.6-incubating
-    release. The documentation will be promoted on the website and "linked"
-    in announcement e-mails.
-  - The 0.7-incubating release will fix the graduation issue, especially in
-    term of license (removal of Echo2 framework for the UI).
-
-Post Graduation:
-
-  - Kalumet scripts. It's the extension of the "software" concept globally
-    to all Kalumet resources. It will allow users to create custom
-    deployment/update plan, with a set of fine-grained steps.
-
-Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
-aware of:
-
-  None so far.

-log4cxx2
-
-Logging for C++
-
-log4cxx2 has been incubating since 2013-12-09.
-
-Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
-
-  1. We probably need to decide what's an acceptable platform/compiler list,
-     sort out any remaining hiccups, and then move towards a release.
-  2. We need to release 0.11.0 as maintenance release.
-  3. We need to make a broader use of the ASF infrastructure (notably the
-     CI, as well as improved management of the Jira site - notably with
-     triaging), and establish a roadmap for the next releases.
-
-Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
-aware of?
-
-  N/A
-
-How has the community developed since the last report?
-
-  The committers are still getting acquainted with each other and the
-  foundation. There's only little need for support currently, but
-  from time to time it looks like "old users" notify about themselves.
-
-How has the project developed since the last report?
-
-  We have applied a lot of bug fixes which were collected in the last
-  years in JIRA and fit to a maintenance release, tested on different
-  platforms and started to discuss about changes in the used build
-  system because of different problems.
-
-Date of last release:
-
-  2008-04-03 was the official, pre-incubation 0.10.0
-
-  Many post-0.10.0 commits exist on trunk which we intend to get out as
-  0.11.x.

-MRQL
-
-MRQL is a query processing and optimization system for large-scale,
-distributed data analysis, built on top of Apache Hadoop, Hama, and Spark.
-
-MRQL has been incubating since 2013-03-13.
-
-Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
-
-  1. increase adoption, expand user community, and increase user list
-     activity
-  2. recruit more developers, committers, and PMCers
-  3. have at least one more incubator release
-
-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?
-
-  Nothing to report. No new developers. No new committers.
-
-How has the project developed since the last report?
-
-  Ported MRQL to Yarn. Added support for Spark 0.9.0.
-  Improved the MRQL build process in many ways.
-  Changed the run scripts to construct assembly jars at runtime.

-Shepherd/Mentor notes:
-
-  Roman Shaposhnik (rvs):
-
-    A reasonably sized community. Given that it has been incubating for
-    about a year now, I'd encourage graduation activity. A few more releases
-    would be a good first step.

-Phoenix
-
-Phoenix is an open source SQL query engine for Apache HBase, a NoSQL data
-store. It is accessed as a JDBC driver and enables querying and managing
-HBase tables using SQL.
-
-Phoenix has been incubating since 12/11/2013.
-
-Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
-
-  1) Perform initial release out of apache incubator followed up quickly by
-     two new releases
-  2) Make our customers successful and prove value of Phoenix+HBase over
-     other alternatives
-  3) Attract new committers to the project
-
-Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
-aware of?
-
-  We've been waiting more than two months for our Github issues to be
-  imported into our Apache JIRA.
-
-How has the community developed since the last report?
-
-  Lots of user/dev traffic on email list and general interest. Received a
-  nice patch from an external contributor to replace our CSV loader with the
-  Apache Commons CSV loader that's under development.

-Attachment AJ: Report from the Apache MRUnit Project  [Brock Noland]
-
-MRUnit is a Java library that helps developers unit test Apache Hadoop
-MapReduce jobs. Unit testing is a technique for improving project quality
-and reducing overall costs by writing a small amount of code that can
-automatically verify the software you write performs as intended. This is
-considered a best practice in software development since it helps identify
-defects early, before they're deployed to a production system.
-
-RELEASES

-Attachment AK: Report from the Apache OFBiz Project  [Jacopo Cappellato]
-
-Apache OFBiz (The Apache Open For Business Project) is an open source
-enterprise automation software project. By enterprise automation we mean:
-ERP, CRM, E-Business / E-Commerce, MRP, SCM, CMMS/EAM, and so on.
-
-We have no issues that require Board assistance at this time.
-
-*Releases*
-* "Apache OFBiz 11.04.04" has been released in February 18, 2014: this is
- a bug fix release of the 11.04 branch
-* the stabilization of the latest release branch 13.07 is mostly complete
- and we are preparing to issue the first release out of it (13.07.01)
-* we are also backporting bug fixes to the other active release
- branch 12.04: soon we will probably issue one release for it
-
-*Community and Project*
-* no new committers or PMC members have been added in this quarter; the
- last committer was Paul Foxworthy (paulfoxworthy), invited in
- November 2012; the last PMC member was Erwan de Ferrieres (erwan),
- invited in December 2009
-* mailing list traffic and commits are lower than in the past years but they
-  are still relevant
-* ApacheCon 2014: OFBiz will be represented by a presentation by me 
-  ("Development of a Groovy based DSL for Apache OFBiz") and by a tutorial by
-  another member of the PMC, Anil Patel ("Introduction to Developing
-  Application for Apache OFBiz Framework")
-* there is an ongoing discussion, within the PMC/committers group and in the
-  community, about the current status of the OFBiz project; over-simplifying
-  the two positions are the following:
-1) the ones that are worried by the fact that the project's progress is slower
-    than in the past (several historical committers are indeed less active) and
-    push to get more committers and PMC members onboard
-2) the ones that believe that slowing down is natural in a project that is
-    reaching a stability phase and, considering the great complexity of the
-    OFBiz codebase, it is important to only invite contributors that 
-    clearly demonstrate a deep knowledge of the framework in order to maintain
-    and improve its quality and stability over time
-** it is my personal belief that addressing the concerns of both groups is
-    important and I will try to encourage and facilitate a constructive
-    discussion about these topics; hopefully, the project will establish
-    the right rules and mechanisms to enlarge the committers base and 
-    maintain a high quality code
-
-*Infra/Legal*
-We have no issues.

-Attachment AQ: Report from the Apache Pivot Project  [Roger Whitcomb]
-
-Apache Pivot is a platform for building installable Internet
-applications (IIAs). It combines the enhanced productivity and
-usability features of a modern user interface toolkit with the
-robustness of the Java platform.
-
-Status:
-Still slow but pretty steady traffic these last three months.  It appears
-there were several new people starting Pivot projects, so there were spikes
-in the User list traffic.  There have definitely been some things brought
-up that could use some development attention in the coming months, as well
-as some ideas for future development (integration with Piccolo2D among them).
-
-There is still development going on for the 2.1 version, although I think
-the 2.0.4 (maintenance) version is probably stable.  There have been only
-four new issues opened in JIRA since the last report, and three were
-resolved.  So, basically the product seems to be pretty stable and the
-PMC are busy with other things at the moment.
-
-Issues:
-None that I know of.
-
-Releases:
-Last release was 2.0.3, published 01 Aug 2013.
-
-Branding/Naming issues:
-None.
-
-Legal issues:
-None.
-
-Infrastructure Issues/Needs:
-We have been trying to figure out what's happening with the Apache Extras
-site (hosted on Google Code).  ComDev was looking into things as of October
-and Luciano said in early January that they were still waiting on Google
-contacts for an answer.  I can't follow the email discussion which is on
-a "members-only" mailing list.

-Attachment AS: Report from the Apache ServiceMix Project  [Gert Vanthienen]
-
-Apache ServiceMix is a flexible, open-source integration container that
-unifies the features and functionality of Apache ActiveMQ, Camel, CXF and
-Karaf to provide a complete, enterprise-ready ESB powered by OSGi.
-
-Project Status
-
-We have lost a lot of our momentum now that major parts of the functionality
-are being maintained in related projects like Apache Karaf and Apache Camel.
-
-In the past month, we've had a discussion on the users@ mailing list about
-the status of the project and whether or not ServiceMix is offering any added
-value over directly using the related projects. We did get quite a bit of
-positive feedback and as a result, we now have more activity again in JIRA 
-as well as on the mailing lists.
-
-There are no outstanding issues requiring board attention.
-
-Community
-
-Since our last board report, we added 3 new people to the PMC: Dan Kulp,
-Jonathan Anstey and Willem Jiang. The last committer was added in November 
-2011.
-
-Community Objectives
-
-The main goal at the moment is getting the Apache ServiceMix 5.0.0 release
-out, in which we will drop support for a few features considered obsolete to
-ensure it's easier to keep a steady release schedule in the future.
-
-Releases
-
-- Apache ServiceMix Specs 2.4.0 in January
-- A set of 22 OSGi bundles in January
-- A set of 67 OSGi bundles in February
-- A set of 59 OSGi bundles in March

-Attachment AT: Report from the Apache Shiro Project  [Les Hazlewood]
-
-Apache Shiro is a powerful and flexible open-source application security
-framework that cleanly handles authentication, authorization, enterprise
-session management and cryptography.
-
-We have no issues that require Board assistance at this time.
-
-Releases:
-
-- We published a 1.2.3 bugfix release on 25 February 2014, 7 days ago.  A 1.3
-  release is still on the horizon as an interim before 2.0.
-
-Community & Project:
-
-- Brian Demers graciously fixed the user-reported CVE-2014-0074 and pushed out
-  the 1.2.3 hotfix.
-
-- A new Shiro plugin for Apache ActiveMQ has been contributed to (and accepted
-  by) the Apache ActiveMQ team.  This allows all aspects of ActiveMQ to be
-  secured by Shiro - a nice addition! The plugin is scheduled to be available
-  in the upcoming ActiveMQ 5.10 release.
-
-- Efforts towards a 2.0 distribution have picked up on a new dev branch.  We
-  will still likely need a 1.3 interim release, but that has been slow-going
-  as of late.  Hopefully we can release 1.3 next month.
-
-- User mailing list continues to be quite active.

-Attachment AV: Report from the Apache SpamAssassin Project  [Kevin A. McGrail]
-
-Description
------------
-SpamAssassin is a mail filter to identify spam. It is an intelligent email
-filter which uses a diverse range of tests to identify unsolicited bulk email,
-more commonly known as Spam. These tests are applied to email headers and
-content to classify email using advanced statistical methods. In addition,
-SpamAssassin has a modular architecture that allows other technologies to be
-quickly wielded against spam and is designed for easy integration into
-virtually any email system.
-
-Releases
---------
-3.4.0-rc6 was released on 2/5/14.
-
-3.4.0 was a big release introducing 2+ years of fixes and features. It was
-released on 2/11/14.  Thanks to Sally Khudairi and the press team for their
-help in announcing this to the world (http://s.apache.org/G6b).
-
-Our rules releases have been fairly consistent with hiccups caused by both the
-new 3.4.0 release and a need for more masscheckers.
-
-The release of 3.4.1 is imminent.
-
-No other releases for this quarter.

-Project Branding Requirements
------------------------------
-James Thompson at cPanel, Inc. drew and donated a new logo for the project.  
-
-The website was revised considerably with the new logo and the new release of
-3.4.0.  Therefore, here is a report on Project Branding Report Checklist:
-
-    DONE - Project Website Basics : homepage is project.apache.org
-
-    DONE - Project Naming And Descriptions : use proper Apache forms, describe
-product, etc.
-
-    DONE - Website Navigation Links : navbar links included, link to
-www.apache.org included
-
-    DONE - Trademark Attributions : attribution for all ASF marks included in
-footers, etc.
-
-    IN PROCESS - Logos and Graphics : include TM, use consistent product logo
-on your site - NOTE: Pending TM being added to one version of the logo to make
-the announcement for the new logo.
-
-    DONE - Project Metadata : DOAP file checked in and up to date
-
-    DONE - added Read PMC Branding Responsibilities
-
-
-Issues
-------
-
-As the project continues to battle spam, we find we are working quite often on
-rules and related anti-spam resources that are not code such as real-time
-blacklists (RBLs).  I believe there is considerable value to the project, the
-foundation and the anti-spam community if we were to spearhead these resources
-under the ASF umbrella.  I have begun the framework at
-https://raptor.pccc.com/raptor.cgim?template=RBL with the intention to run
-this under the project if permitted.  I would like feedback if this is
-possible or if it needs to be run outside of ASF.
-
-No other issues requiring board attention.

-Attachment AZ: Report from the Apache Tiles Project  [Greg Reddin]
-
-Apache Tiles is a templating framework for modern Java applications.
-
-General:
-
-This has been a very slow quarter for Apache Tiles. There have not been any
-software releases or PMC changes in this quarter. There have been a few threads
-on the user@ mailing list, but even that traffic seems to have slowed down for
-the time being. The ongoing slow pace of the project continues to be something
-to keep an eye on, but I don't believe it is a cause for concern at the moment.

------------------------------------------
-Attachment BA: Report from the Apache Tomcat Project  [Mladen Turk]
-
-General:
-  Continued healthy activity across multiple components and
-  responsiveness on both dev and user lists.
-
-Issues:
-  There are no issues requiring Board attention at this time.
-
-Releases:
-  * Apache Tomcat 8.0.0-RC10 - alpha, 2013-12-26
-  * Apache Tomcat 8.0.1 - beta, 2014-02-02
-  * Apache Tomcat 8.0.2 (not released)
-  * Apache Tomcat 8.0.3 - beta, 2014-02-11
-  * Apache Tomcat 7.0.48 (not released)
-  * Apache Tomcat 7.0.49 (not released)
-  * Apache Tomcat 7.0.50 - 2014-01-08
-  * Apache Tomcat 7.0.51 (not released)
-  * Apache Tomcat 7.0.52 - 2014-02-17
-  * Apache Tomcat 6.0.38 (not released)
-  * Apache Tomcat 6.0.39 - 2014-01-31
-  * Apache Tomcat Connectors 1.2.38 (not released)
-  * Apache Tomcat Connectors 1.2.39 - 2014-03-11
-  * Apache Standard Taglib 1.2.0 (not released)
-  * Apache Standard Taglib 1.2.1 - 2014-01-02
-
-Development:
-  There was lots of development activity on Apache Tomcat 7
-  and Apache Tomcat 8. Recently some work has been done on
-  new NIO2 connector.
-  There was the first release of Apache Standard Taglib 1.2, an
-  implementation of JSTL 1.2 (JSR 052). It is the first release
-  of a tag library, after migrating Apache Taglibs project from
-  Apache Jakarta to Apache Tomcat several years ago. It is the
-  first release that implements JSTL 1.2 specification.
-
-Community:
-  There were no changes in community since the last report.
-  We have organised a day long Tomcat Summit for ApacheCon.
-  Topics for discussion are currently based around future development
-  direction but any attendee is welcome to add their own topic(s).
-
-Security:
- * CVE-2013-2067 - Important: Session fixation
-   FORM authentication associates the most recent request
-   requiring authentication with the current session.
-   By repeatedly sending a request for an authenticated
-   resource while the victim is completing the login form,
-   an attacker could inject a request that would be executed
-   using the victim's credentials.
- * CVE-2013-2071 - Moderate: Information disclosure
-   Bug 54178 described a scenario where elements of a previous
-   request may be exposed to a current request. This was very
-   difficult to exploit deliberately but fairly likely to happen
-   unexpectedly if an application used AsyncListeners that
-   threw RuntimeExceptions.
- * CVE-2013-4590 - Low: Information disclosure
-   Application provided XML files such as web.xml, context.xml,
-   .tld, .tagx and .jspx allowed XXE which could be used to
-   expose Tomcat internals to an attacker. This vulnerability
-   only occurs when Tomcat is running web applications from untrusted
-   sources such as in a shared hosting environment.
- * CVE-2013-4322 - Important: Denial of service
-   The fix for CVE-2012-3544 was not complete.
-   It did not cover the following cases:
-   chunk extensions were not limited
-   whitespace after the : in a trailing header was not limited
- * CVE-2014-0050 - Important: Denial of Service
-   It was possible to craft a malformed Content-Type header for
-   a multipart request that caused Apache Tomcat to enter an
-   infinite loop. A malicious user could, therefore, craft a
-   malformed request that triggered a denial of service.

-Trademark:
-  Detailed status:
-  https://svn.apache.org/repos/private/pmc/tomcat/trademark-status.txt
-  We have received a request from Canonical to use the Tomcat logo to
-  identify their Tomcat installation bundle for JuJu, their virtualised
-  platform. We intend to grant them permission to do so (with some
-  constraints).

-Whirr is a library for running services like Hadoop or ZooKeeper in the cloud.
-
-Releases:
-No new releases this quarter. Last release was 0.8.2, April 2013.
-
-Community:

-Attachment BF: Report from the Apache Wicket Project  [Martijn Dashorst]
-
-Apache Wicket is a Java framework for creating highly dynamic,
-component oriented web applications.
-
-Things worthy of note:
-
-- Wicket is 10 years old
-- Wicket 7 is moving along
-- Promoted experimental modules to non-experimental
-- Released Wicket 6.13.0, 6.14.0, 1.5.11, 1.4.23
-- Fixed CVE-2013-2055, CVE-2014-0043
-- No new committers or members were added in this period
-
-Date last committer added: 12 July 2013
-
-10 year anniversary
-
-From what we could gather from our archives, long time committers'
-memories and creator Jonathan Locke, Wicket was conceived somewhere in
-april 2004. It was not called that but when it was open sourced in
-august 2004 the project was named Wicket. The project tried a start at
-codehaus, but moved to sourceforge quickly when it took very long to
-get resources allocated. The next couple of years Wicket grew into a
-nice community and after a rather short courtship moved to Apache and
-is still a healthy, if mature community. 
-
-Most first timers are still listed on the PMC and still have their
-commit bits, even if their involvement has grown silent over the years.
-
-While Wicket was grown by an exceptional community of developers, I'd
-like to thank especially Jonathan Locke, for his creation of Wicket and
-his foresight to invite a community to take over the project and take
-Wicket further than we all could have imagined.

-Our development branch is still being worked on but reaches the point
-where we can release betas. One thing worthy of note is the addition of
-a new feature that loosens some of our strict rules of matching markup
-hierarchy with a Java component hierarchy. This solves one of the most
-hated 'features' since 1.0.
-
-Experimental modules
-
-We added some experimental modules in the beginning of the Wicket 6
-timeframe, promising to graduate them when reaching maturity. The time
-came for several modules to graduate from experimental to core module:
-
- - Bean validation support
- - CDI 1.1 support
- - Native websocket support
-
-Other experimental modules will remain either experimental or will be
-'sunsetted'.
-
-Releases and CVEs
-
-Several maintenance and security releases have been performed, solving
-two CVE's across our full range of releasable code: 1.4, 1.5 and 6.x.
-
-CVE-2013-2055 allowed access to web templates stored with a Wicket
-application. This is fixed in 1.4.23, 1.5.11 and 6.8.
-
-CVE-2014-0043 allowed querying for the existence of particular classes
-in the classpath by issuing requests to special urls handled by Wicket.
-This only affects applications using 1.5 or 6.x and users are advised
-to upgrade to 1.5.11 or 6.14.0

-Attachment BH: Report from the Apache ZooKeeper Project  [Flavio Junqueira]
-
-ZooKeeper is a reliable coordination service for distributed systems.
- 
-Bug-fix release 3.4.6 has been voted this week and we are in the process
-of publishing it.
-
-Trunk is still under development for an eventual 3.5.0 release. A couple
-of important improvements on the way for 3.5.0:
- 
-- One important new feature in 3.5.0 will be the ability to reconfigure
-a ZooKeeper ensemble. This feature was discussed a long time in
-ZOOKEEPER-107 and we have converged and committed it;
-- We are also focusing on a number of improvements over the code that
-performs recovery. In particular, we are targeting an implementation that
-avoids sending and taking unnecessary snapshots, which reduces time to
-recover in the presence of crashes.
- 
-Also, the release is supposed to address scalability, jdk7 and openjdk support,
-maven build/rel, testing and audit logging. There are other various patches
-we are working on related code cleanup and refactoring.
- 
-Note that the status of releases hasn't changed since the last board report.
-3.5.0 release date is not defined yet. 
- 
-No infrastructure issues.
- 
-Community:
- 
-Mailing list activity is moderate and the number of patch reviews and
-commits has dropped significantly. 
- 
-* 10 active committers representing 8 unique organizations. No change to
-the list of committers.
-*  9 active PMC members representing 7 unique organizations. No change to
-the list of PMC members.
-* 421 subscribers on dev (up from 408 since December 2013).
-* 927 subscribers on user (up from 891 last quarter).
-* 1891 jira issues have been created to date (58 more since December
-2013)

-service. The project also includes Hedwig which is a highly scalable
-Pub/Sub service built on top of ZooKeeper and Bookkeeper with strong
-durability guarantees.
-
-We are currently working towards the 4.3.0 release, which is in its
-final phase now. We project that it will be released early in April.
-This release includes a lot of improvements to the bookie on-disk
-performance, a new statistics framework, and protobuffer protocol
-support along with numerous bugfixes.

-Attachment BI: Report from the Apache Lenya Project  [Richard Frovarp]
-
-The Apache Lenya CMS is a Cocoon based XML/XHTML content management
-system.
-
-Development:
-
-Last release: 2.0.4 on 2011-03-14
-
-Community:
-
-Last change to community was PMC addition in October 2011.
-
-Activity:
-
-The main question from the board was project activity.
-
-The project has experienced a downturn in activity over the past 12-18
-months. Activity has dropped to near zero.
-
-Casual observation of participation indicates that there are enough active
-PMC members to act on the needs of the project. However, an inquiry as to
-those that were willing to participate actively in the project on votes if
-necessary only resulted in two PMC members showing interest. This means that
-there may not be enough PMC votes to take action on the project. The last
-vote required of the PMC was October 2011.
-
-If interest in PMC members does not pick up before the next reporting
-quarter, the Attic may be the best course of action. There currently are no
-committers or contributors that could be promoted to PMC status.

+
+ 4. Executive Officer Reports
+
+    A. Chairman [Brett]
+
+       Happy New Year!
+
+       Following on from the discussion about budget timing, an early Annual
+       Members Meeting has been suggested. This would require starting the
+       process in the next week or two. We will also need to work through the
+       questions about quorum raised at the 2014 meeting.
+
+       Several other discussions have started among the board this month, but
+       have been pushed out to committees such as Community Development and
+       the Incubator.
+
+       We have a higher than normal number of reports missing this month,
+       likely due to the missing reminder emails and the holiday period.
+
+    B. President [Ross]
+
+       It's budget planning season. All officers should send their request to me
+       ASAP. The current timeline is:
+
+         - Jan: Deliver a draft budget based on 2014 budget actuals (Virtual)
+         - Feb: Deliver a draft budget adjusted based on Officer input
+             (President) 
+         - March: Deliver a draft budget for comment by the outgoing board
+             (President)
+         - April: Deliver final budget for approval by the incoming
+             board (President) 
+
+       In the March and April deliverables I plan to also provide a 5 year budget
+       proposal. This will be used for planning purposes only and will not be voted
+       on by the board (though comments will be incorporated wherever appropriate).
+
+       EA contract has been renewed. This again brought the issue of contractor vs
+       employee to the fore. From a management perspective we are in good shape
+       (though I'm working with Virtual to change the contract to reflect this). 
+       However, since Melissa is working 40 hours per week and has no other job it is
+       hard to argue that, under IRS rules, she would be considered a contractor.
+
+       My previous recommendation was to use Virtual services to resolve this issue. 
+       This was not supported by the board, however the problem still exists today. 
+       Furthermore, VP Infrastructure has a couple of similar contracts due for
+       renewal. Greg is looking at a proposal to address this and will hopefully be
+       able to provide an update today. In the interim I again recommend that we use
+       virtual to resolve this problem, even is this is a short term solution while a
+       long term one is identified and implemented.
+
+       Brand manage report is missing at the time of writing. I am not aware of any
+       significant issues. The move to allowing PMCs to manage requests clearly
+       within the policies identified by VP Brand Management seems to be taking
+       effect, with less trivial requests reaching the brand mailing list and thus a
+       seemingly more rapid response to more complex issues.
+
+       The fundraising report is missing at the time of writing. The new VPs are
+       getting up to speed and communications with sponsors are being managed well. 
+       With Hadrian's engagement our EA is pushing forward to formalize a proposal
+       for an OfBiz based CRM solution for the fundraising team. At the same time a
+       member of the OfBiz community has expressed interest on the ComDev list in
+       helping the foundation. I've made everyone aware of the interest and
+       encouraged discussion on the fundraising lists. in the meantime we are
+       continuing to spec and cost a service.
+
+       Sally (VP Marketing) has provided some mock-ups for an alternative to the
+       "fork me on GitHub" banners in response to discussions on the board@ list. 
+       These are intended to progress the discussion and will be shared with the
+       Wicket PMC for feedback first. Sally is also finalizing the first draft of the
+       quarterly report. This is due for publication before the next board meeting. 
+       Other Marketing items are "business as usual".
+
+       Infrastructure report is missing at the time of writing. There are two items
+       I'm aware of, the first is the contract status for renewals (discussed above),
+       the second is the budgeting process. David (VP Infrastructure) and I are
+       working on classifying services and budgeting according to their importance
+       and the expected growth of the foundation.
+
+       Travel Assistance Committee report is missing at the time of writing. EA
+       reports that TAC applications are underway for ApacheCon NA (close Feb 6th)
+
+
+       Directed Sponsorship
+       -----------------------------
+
+       As discussed on the board@ list I would like to proceed with a limited
+       experiment allowing directed sponsorship, that is sponsorship that is only
+       used to support a specific project.  My motivation is that a PMC has claimed
+       they were unaware of the willingness of the board to entertain the concept of
+       directed sponsorships. This has, arguably, resulted in a lost opportunity to
+       empower a PMC through directed sponsorships. My goal here is to remove all
+       doubt about the willingness of the ASF Board to conduct a controlled
+       experiment in order to inform a future policy for all PMCs. I do not intend
+       for this experiment to set a precedent, only to provide valuable data. Note,
+       there is currently no PMC in a position to take advantage of this. If this
+       remains the case that will be valuable data in itself.
+
+       I have consulted with Virtual and have been informed that there are no
+       concerns relating to our 501c(3) status (although we would still need to
+       ensure a projects use of directed sponsorship is appropriate). Virtual have
+       also confirmed that they can support this proposed experiment with no
+       additional cost.
+
+       One important item to note is that this proposal does not enable a PMC to have
+       a "donate" button for small contributions. The overhead in dealing with small
+       donations is too high.
+
+       Proposal:
+
+       - The ASF will continue to provide essential services for core funding using
+       the existing sponsorship model, this proposal does not change that arrangement
+
+       - During this experiment a maximum of two PMCs will be given permission to
+       solicit directed sponsorships with a minimum donation level of $50,000.
+
+       - Projects are free to use directed funds to deliver additional services
+       not provided from core ASF funds if, and only if, VPs Fundraising have
+       approved this use 
+
+       - Any directed sponsorships will have a total of 15% contributed to ASF
+       central funds to pay for essential maintenance of core services
+
+       - Where the sponsor is already a foundation sponsor the 15% core
+       contribution will be reduced by the total of the existing sponsorship amount
+
+       - Existing sponsorship of the foundation cannot be reclassified as a
+       directed sponsorship
+
+       - Directed sponsorships will (optionally) receive credit on the “thanks” page
+       at the level of their 15% core donation with a note that they are also a
+       project sponsor
+
+       - Receiving projects may choose to manage their own thanks page under
+       guidelines drawn up by VP Fundraising and VP Brand Management
+
+       - Sponsorships will be assumed to be for 12 months, any unspent funds at the
+       end of 12 months will become ASF foundation funds if the ASF chooses. Sponsors
+       will agree to this in writing.
+
+       - Sponsorships are not refundable if the project leaves the ASF, retires
+       to the Attic or fails to use the funds. All unspent funds will be transferred
+       to core ASF funds.
+
+       - Sponsors can dictate which PMC the money is directed towards but not what
+       the money is to be used for, it is the PMC that decide what it is used for.
+
+       - Any requested use by the PMC must be in conformance with the policies and
+       practices of the ASF, where policy is not clearly defined VPs Fundraising
+       approval will be required (for example, directed sponsorships cannot be used
+       to develop code).
+
+       - The President, VPs Fundraising and PMC Chair will work directly with
+       potential sponsors to ensure they are fully aware of what is and is not
+       possible with their donated funds (for example, code development is explicitly
+       prohibited )
+
+       - Any service that adds to the workload of the ASF contractors or VPs will
+       require an appropriate contribution to ASF funds to cover these costs
+
+       - No use of the funds that would put the ASF 501c(3) status at risk will be
+       permitted
+
+       Additionally, please see Attachments 1 through 6.

+       Secretary is running well. An issue with submissions of modified license

+
+    E. Executive Vice President [Rich]
+
+        This month I've been working on finding keynotes for
+        ApacheCon, and trying to get various project communities to
+        promote the CFP and seek speakers. Thus far, we have less than
+        50 talks proposed, however, we've traditionally seen half to
+        two thirds of proposals come in during the last week.
+
+        The CFP closes on Feb 1, so the coming month will be spent in
+        the selection process and other logistics around planning the
+        event.
+
+        I've also been working with the people at OpenSource.com (as
+        has Sally) to identify people within the Apache community to
+        write for the 'Apache Quill' series that they'll be running
+        for as long as we cam provide content.
+
+    F. Vice Chairman [Greg]
+
+       Options for handling our service provider contracts have been gathered from
+       discussions and placed into version control. Refinement is now occurring, and
+       expansion on the best options.
+
+       At the moment, the two best options are to use Virtual's PEO (Professional
+       Employment Organization) or to contract with a (corporate) third-party for our
+       services.

+Attachment 2: Report from the VP of Brand Management  [Shane Curcuru]
+
+The Apache CloudStack PMC is working with the Linux Foundation (LF) directly
+with the aim of setting up a CloudStack Marketing Alliance, outside of the
+ASF, to help promote the use and development of CloudStack.  The PMC and LF
+representatives are working within our published brand policy, and are working
+with relevant ASF officers when needed. This looks to be a very productive
+start to this PMC's long-running broader work around showcasing CloudStack to
+the public, and should provide good experiences and models for other PMCs
+wishing to broaden their outreach.
+
+Several other PMCs have begun directly issuing permissions for small/mid scale
+events using their marks, so the process of PMC permissions is starting to be
+used, although more education and clearer documentation is still very much
+needed.
+
+Submitted a USPTO registration for FLINK at the request of the newly graduated
+PMC.
+
+The ASF received the formal trademark registration paperwork for our HADOOP
+registration in Japan.
+
+With assistance of counsel and many other ASF'ers, updated and signed an event
+MOU with Cloudera for their ongoing Hadoop World conference.  
+
+trademarks@ lost Jukka as a moderator.  While Henri volunteered to fill in,
+the lack of any other volunteers is concerning for the long term with the
+relatively small number of Members who regularly step up to help productively
+work on trademarks@ matters.

+-----------------------------------------
+Attachment 3: Report from the VP of Fundraising  [Jim Jagielski]
+
+Much of what happened in the Fundraising realm is captured on Melissa's report.
+
+* We had a few discussions about the CRM issue with Melissa and Rob. I am
+  waiting on the HotWax Media response, but it's very likely that I will
+  reach out to the Ofbiz community for a pilot project.
+* We started a conversation about improving the Thanks page. Daniel came up
+  with a nice proposal. Looks like we'll soon declare lazy consensus and go
+  with his rendering.
+* We are continuing the renewal process normally.
+* We identified new potential sponsors (a CRM, again, would help)
+* We are looking into ways to conduct fundraising campaigns in ways
+  compatible with ASF's values.
+* Hadrian asked to be associated with the ASF on GuideStar (don't know yet if
+  their GS Exchange is an appropriate avenue).

+Attachment 4: Report from the VP of Marketing and Publicity  [Sally Khudairi]
+
+I. Budget: Sally Khudairi submitted two NASDAQ GlobeNewswire invoices to the
+ASF/Virtual accounting team for payment for press releases that fell out of
+the pre-paid contract timeframe (two week period between contract termination
+and renewal). She has also been working with Melissa Warnkin on production of
+several promotional projects (such as stickers for FOSDEM and SCALE
+conferences), for which Melissa has forwarded the credit card receipts for
+ASF/Virtual's deduction from the M&P budget.
+
+II. Fundraising/Branding/Marketing liaison: no new formal projects or
+developments at this time. Sally continues to liaise with Trademarks & Brand
+Management with usage requests. She is also working on the first of the ASF's
+quarter annual reports, which is scheduled to be published at the end of
+January.
+
+III. Press Releases: the following formal announcements were issued via the
+newswire service, ASF Foundation Blog, and announce@apache.org during this
+timeframe:

+http://s.apache.org/dGR and the addition of Apache sub-projects being added to
+the Foundation's official activity count http://s.apache.org/fs5 . An
+additional 13 items were tweeted on @TheASF. Six Apache News Round-ups were
+issued, with a total of 18 weekly summaries published thus far. 
+
+V. Future Announcements: two announcements are in development, one for a new
+TLP and the other for Apache PDFBox. Sally is working on new promotional
+guidelines for podlings both entering as well as those ready to graduate from
+the Incubator, and will be coordinating with Roman Shaposhnik on publishing
+them when ready. Those PMCs wishing to announce major project news are welcome
+to contact Sally at <press@apache.org> for more information. Kindly provide at
+least 2-weeks' notice for proper planning and execution.
+
+
+VI. Media Relations: we responded to 7 media requests. The ASF received 696
+press clips over this time period, vs. last month's clip count of 2,271.
+
+VII. Analyst Relations: we responded to 4 analyst queries. Apache was
+mentioned in 26 write-ups by Gartner, 3 reports by Forrester, 3 write-up by
+GigaOM, 3 reports by 451 Research/Yankee Group, and 6 reports by IDC. Sally is
+working with Forrester on a new report on Apache Spark. 
+
+VIII. ApacheCon liaison: Sally continues to work with Ross Gardler on creating
+an ASF-wide marketing campaign that can be mapped against the tracks at
+ApacheCon. They are also working with Rich Bowen with targeting possible

+Attachment 5: Report from the VP of Infrastructure  [David Nalley]
+
+New Karma:
+==========
+
+
+Finances:
+==========
+1429.14 - Amazon Web Services
+3969.00 - Carbonite/Zmanda
+
+As a side note, the new cards have arrived, which provide a much
+better level of insight into spending; many thanks to the office 
+of Treasurer and EA for chasing this.  
+ 
+Operations Action Items:
+========================
+
+N/A
+
+Short Term Priorities:
+======================
+
+Codesigning
+-----------
+Another project has requested code signing functionality. (UIMA
+INFRA-9002). 
+Four signing events occurred in the month. Two events each for Tomcat
+8.0.16 and 8.0.17. 
+
+Machine deprecation
+-------------------
+Work continues (and was slightly hindered by the holidays) on
+deprecating the host the runs the writable git service and bugzilla.
+
+Backups
+-------
+Over the past several months we've found a number of services where
+backups were either failing or not happening at all. We've spent a
+good deal of time focusing on auditing backups and looking for a new
+solution that gives us better visibility into the success or failure
+of backup jobs. To that end we've selected Zmanda as our platform
+of choice and have begun deploying it. 
+
+LDAP
+----
+
+LDAP has emerged as a priority during this month. The loss of the
+machine that served as the svn master last month reduced the number of
+LDAP servers in our Oregon Colo to 1, and that instance is
+consistently under heavy load, and logins to most services are taking
+significantly longer as a result. We've had a lot of work in process, 
+and only recently began tackling the issue. 
+
+Long Range Priorities:
+======================
+
+Monitoring
+----------
+
+Work is continuing on monitoring, with a good leap forward this month.
+We are taking advantage of (and contrbuting to) a project by the name
+of dsnmp that queries the Dell OpenManage SNMP/WBEM frameworks as well
+as the overall operating system health for machine. This provides
+status checking to alert us to issues that have frequently resulted in
+outages or service degradation. This month we were alerted to multiple
+issues that we were able to address before they resulted in outages.
+This is not a panacea, nor are we done with monitoring efforts, but we
+are in a much better position now. 
+
+Automation
+----------
+Automation progress continued, though slowed somewhat by the holidays.
+The writable git service is now handled by configuration management. 
+ 
+Currently the following services are in progress or in final stages of
+testing: 
+blogs.a.o
+Bugzilla
+
+Resilience
+----------
+
+We haven't made much progress on this front in the past month, aside
+from th ongoing automation efforts. 
+
+Technical Debt
+--------------
+
+As part of our automation efforts, we've been able to generate
+recreatable Debian packages for our customized version of Bugzilla.
+The long term plan is for us to have a private build job that builds
+new packages anytime the source code in our tree for Bugzilla is
+modified. 
+
+General Activity:
+=================
+
+We continue to explore the package repository service and have folks
+from Cassandra currently working on moving their existing deb
+repository from www.a.o/dist to this service as a pilot. Traffic about
+the pilot has generated interest from other projects. 
+
+Addressing a long standing todo that came out of the Heartbleed
+vulnerability, we now have an enterprise account with Symantec
+that will allow us to provision certs on demand with no interaction
+required for apache.org and openoffice.org. 
+
+We've migrated a traffic intensive service from one provider to
+another to minimize our cloud hosting expenses. (Currently 3/4 of our
+cloud infrastructure expense is from egress traffic). The new provider
+has a different fee structure that should result in noticeably lower 
+service charges. 
+
+Maven has requested, and we've agreed to host, an ASF copy of the
+Maven Central repository from Sonatype. Work is starting around that,
+but is still early. This is expected to cost in the range of $600 per
+annum.   
+
+We began discussing deprecating translate.apache.org as the service is
+provided for only 4 projects, and has only one volunteer doing the work
+of administering the service. Additionally, a number of l10n services 
+advertise free l10n hosting for OSS projects. Many of our projects are 
+already making use of those free offerings.  
+
+Uptime Statistics:
+==================
+We have revamped our uptime charts a bit, added some services and removed some
+deprecated ones. Our current overall target is 98.59% for these samples. This
+month, the overall uptime was 99.61% with critical services achieving 99.81%.
+All of the downtime here was due to moving the writeable git repos to a new
+machine.
+
+
+Type:                   Target:   Reality:   Target Met:
+---------------------------------------------------------
+Critical services:      99.50%    99.81%        Yes
+Core services:          99.00%    99.66%        Yes
+Standard services:      95.00%    99.18%        Yes
+---------------------------------------------------------
+Overall:                98.59%    99.57%        Yes

+
+There was some discussion regarding cleaning-up our external documentation,

+Attachment 9: Report from the Apache Security Team Project  [Mark Cox]
+
+We see a number of confused messages come to security@ every week
+where people say they have been hacked, or they never installed our
+software.  These were different to what happened in previous years
+when people saw "powered by Apache" on a web page that was in outage
+and thought we'd hacked them.  
+
+In December we emailed a number of these people (we usually ignore
+them) to try to figure out what they were seeing.  Only one responsed
+to me, and we figured out that what they saw was a license page for
+"Guava" on their Android mobile.  The Guava license mentions it's
+under the Apache License.  The user didn't know what Guava was, didn't
+remember installing it (they didn't), and assumed that whatever other
+things were happening on their handset was the result of this
+software.
+
+Aside from these; there continues to be a steady stream of reports of
+various kinds arriving at security@. These continue to be dealt with
+by the security team.
+
+December 2014
+
+2 Support questions
+5 Phishing/spam/proxy/attacks point to site "powered by Apache" or Android

+
+Apache Abdera provides Java implementations of the IETF Atom
+Syndication Format and Publishing Protocol specifications.
+
+Abdera is very very quiet with no activity for months, and I've been

+someone else would volunteer to be chair but had no offers, I've asked
+again now and if no one steps up again by the next report i'll propose
+the project is moved to the Attic.
+
+No board issues.

+Attachment B: Report from the Apache Accumulo Project  [Billie Rinaldi]
+
+The Apache Accumulo sorted, distributed key/value store is a robust,
+scalable, high performance data storage system that features cell-based
+access control and customizable server-side processing.  It is based on
+Google's BigTable design and is built on top of Apache Hadoop,
+Zookeeper, and Thrift.
+
+Releases
+Version 1.6.1 was released on 9/24/2014.
+No releases have been made since the last report.
+
+Activity
+For the first time, the numbers of subscribers to both the dev and user
+lists have decreased slightly.  The dev and commits lists are
+maintaining steady activity, while the user list activity has decreased.
+The average number of messages per month for August - December 2014 is 
+roughly half that of the preceding six months.  Most months, we are
+still seeing upwards of 70 messages per month to the user list.
+
+We are planning to release 1.6.2 very soon and 1.7.0 moderately soon.
+
+Community
+Sean Busbey was added as a committer and PMC member on 1/09/2014.
+No new committers have been added since the last report, but we are
+actively discussing how to grow our community.
+
+The second annual Accumulo conference has been scheduled for April [1].
+
+In late November into December we experienced what might have been our
+first vehement disagreement over a code change.  The issue was
+ultimately resolved amicably.  One notable outcome of the process was a
+decision by our community to adopt semantic versioning 2.0 for our
+releases.

+logging service. The project also includes Hedwig which is
+a highly scalable Pub/Sub service built on top of ZooKeeper
+and BookKeeper with strong durability guarantees.
+
+= Project Status =
+Development activity has been low over the last month due to the holiday
+season. We have been having discussions on how to improve the project
+visibility and attract new contributors. One angle we will take is to improve
+our documentation to flatten the learning curve for new comers to the
+project. We also intend to do more public talks and blog posts, publicizing
+the production usecases that already exist.
+
+We plan to submit one talk to ApacheCon NA. We have also been working with
+press@a.o to create a press release announcing the BookKeeper TLP. All that
+is required now for this, is approval from the relevant press offices in the
+companies mentioned, and it's ready to go.
+
+= Releases =
+Our last release was 4.3.0, released on 2014-10-14. 
+
+Release 4.2.4 is currently being voted on, so we expect it to be released in

+
+Project Status
+--------------
+
+The project has been moving at a slightly slower pace than in past quarters.
+Since the last board report there have been 15 new issues logged in Jira, with
+8 of them being closed in that time. Similar to the previous couple of board
+reports, the majority of recent work has been focused on minor improvements
+and bug fixes.
+
+A particularly interesting recent jira ticket was the donation of a number of
+Crunch utilities from Spotify (CRUNCH-484). Spotify also posted an interesting
+blog post about how they currently use Crunch for analytics pipelines [1].
+
+There are no board-level issues at this time.
+
+Community
+---------
+
+Community activity has been similar, although slightly lower, in comparison

+Attachment Q: Report from the Apache DB Project  [Myrna van Lunteren]
+
+The Apache DB TLP consists of the following subprojects:
+ o DdlUtils : a small, easy-to-use component for working with
+                      Database Definition (DDL) files.
+ o Derby     : an open source relational database implemented entirely in Java.
+ o JDO        : focused on building the API and the TCK for compatibility
+                      testing of Java Data Object implementations providing data
+                      persistence.
+ o Torque   : an object-relational mapper for Java.
+
+== Status ==
+There are no issues requiring board attention at this time.
+
+Activities over the last quarter
+a) The Derby community is adding features and fixes and working towards a
+  10.12 release
+b) Rick Hillegas of the Derby community created a 'Powered by Apache' Logo for
+  Derby. The other sub-projects have not created such logos.
+c) Activity review; the overall DB project is healthy and alive. Various
+  projects do seem to show a slowing down compared to a few years ago:
+  - an attempt a few years ago to move DdlUtils to the attic was called off by
+    its user community, but not much further activity has ensued. 
+  - Derby user-list activity is still lively, but activity on the developer
+    list has recently appeared slower (e.g. 175 posts in Nov, vs. 524 posts in
+    Nov last year).
+  - Overall JDO postings have gone down, but development activity is ongoing. 
+  - Torque list postings are down from a few years ago, but still show regular
+    activity.

+
+Description: Apache Drill is a distributed query layer that supports querying
+JSON, NoSQL and Hadoop using SQL.
+
+Current Activity: Drill continues to see positive energy and discussion on the
+mailing lists.  One of the great things we are now seeing is a broader set of
+users answering new user queries on the mailing list.  This is a positive sign
+towards further diversification and health of the community. The website also
+has moved to be being based on Jekyll and markdown, which has reduced the
+burden for update and thus increased the number of updates and freshness of
+the content.
+
+Releases:
+* The 0.7 release of Drill was released on 12/23/2014.  This was Drill's first
+TLP release and included more than 230 closed JIRAs.

+for becoming a top-level project has been set up, the renaming of the mailing
+lists is partially done (as of the time of writing this report).
+
+The Apache press team announced the graduation on January 12th. There is a
+decent media echo.
+
+
+COMMUNITY
+---------
+* Last committer was voted in November 20th, 2014 (Timo Walther)
+
+* When graduating to a TLP (December 17, 2014), all committers and
+  a subset of the mentors formed the project Flink PMC
+
+* The project community is active and growing
+ (January 1st to 11th: 25 messages in user mailing list,
+  180 messages in dev mailing list, 126 messages in commits list,
+  314 messages in issues mailing list)
+
+* Community is actively developing the software.
+  JIRA reports 72 new issues and 54 solved issues in the last 30 days
+
+* The issue of trademarking Flink is still ongoing. The process has started.

+
+The Apache Incubator is the entry path into the ASF for projects and
+codebases wishing to become part of the Foundation's efforts.
+
+There are currently 36 podlings undergoing incubation.  One podling 
+joined us this month (Corinthia). One member joined and two members
+left the IPMC.
+
+IPMC has recognized the need for tightening up mentorship requirements
+and overall structure of the incubation process. Active discussions
+on how to this in the best possible way are on going and the recommendation
+is expected to be available in a few weeks.

+* Infrastructure
+
+
+
+* Miscellaneous
+
+  * NPanday community seems to be in agreement that retirement is the best
+    option at this point. The only outstanding issue before formally
+    recommending graduation VOTE is to decide whether there's enough cycles
+    available for one last release before retirement.

+
+--------------------
+Brooklyn
+
+Brooklyn is a framework for modelling, monitoring, and managing applications
+through autonomic blueprints.
+
+Brooklyn has been incubating since 2014-05-01.
+
+Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
+
+  1. Grow the community
+  2. More diversity of the committers/PPMC (currently biased towards
+     employees of a single organization)
+  3. Following up our first release with further, regular, releases
+
+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?
+
+  Our community continues to grow slowly but surely, and has received
+  interest and contributions from new community members.
+
+  We had the opportunity to talk about our project at ApacheCon Europe
+  recently, which has introduced Brooklyn to a wider audience within
+  Apache.
+
+How has the project developed since the last report?
+
+  Code continues to be proposed and merged at a high rate. We are
+  satisfied with our technical velocity.
+
+  We recently completed our first release as an Apache project, and
+  look forward to following this up with regular releases from now on.
+
+Date of last release:
+
+  2014-12-23 (apache-brooklyn-0.7.0-M2-incubating)
+
+When were the last committers or PMC members elected?
+
+  No change since 2014-07-02.

+Shepherd/Mentor notes:
+
+  Chip Childers (chipchilders):
+  
+    The Brooklyn community is doing very well in learning the rules /
+    policies / nuances of working at the ASF. It still needs a bit more time
+    to build up a diverse community IMO, but things are looking good.
+
+  David Nalley (ke4qqq):
+  
+    The Brooklyn folks kicked out their first release during this reporting
+    cycle, which is an important milestone. Work still remains in terms of
+    building a diverse community.
+
+--------------------
+Calcite
+
+Calcite is a highly customizable engine for parsing and planning queries on
+data in a wide variety of formats. It allows database-like access, and in
+particular a SQL interface and advanced query optimization, for data not
+residing in a traditional database. (Renamed from Optiq on 2014-09-30.)
+
+Calcite has been incubating since 2014-05-19.
+
+Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
+
+  1. Continue to build community
+  2. Add more committers and PPMC members
+  3. Demonstrate community robustness by rotating project tasks among
+     multiple project members
+
+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?
+
+  In December, there were 84 messages on dev@, 45 commits, 50 issues

+Shepherd/Mentor notes:
+
+  Alan Cabrera (adc):
+
+    This podling is off to a great start.  Mentors are extremely active
+    participants with most of the non-Jira chatter being between Dmitriy
+    Setrakyan and the mentors; look to the Jira issue to see the rest of the
+    community "getting it done".  The "issues to be addressed" section seems
+    reasonable.
+
+  Branko Čibej (brane):
+
+    I agree with Alan's assessment, but I'd really like to see more
+    activity on the dev@ list; especially more of the initial committers
+    getting involved in discussions there. Whilst Jira notifications are
+    nice, I have a nagging feeling that most of the discussions within
+    the community are happening off-line, which leaves a rather large
+    hole in the community's collective memory (i.e., mail archives).
+    This will have to be addressed before graduation.

+Kalumet
+
+Kalumet a complete environment manager and deployer including J2EE
+environments (application servers, applications, etc), softwares, and
+resources.
+
+Kalumet has been incubating since 2011-09-20.
+
+Community Developement:
+
+  Apache Kalumet 0.6-incubating version has been released.  However, due to
+  some misunderstanding, the release vote has not been completed by 3 IPMC.
+  Especially, some legal files issues have been raised.
+  
+  We are preparing a 0.6.1-incubating release to fix the legal files and
+  submit to IPMC vote.
+
+  We are in the way of promoting the documentation on the website.
+
+Project Development:
+
+  We are preparing the 0.6.1-incubating (plan for December, 27) to fix the
+  legal files issues raised on 0.6-incubating release and have a complete
+  IPMC vote.
+
+  We are preparing the 0.7-incubating release with the development changes.
+
+  A new contributor has been identified and started to work on some issues
+  and refactoring of the webconsole (mockup provided using Vaadin).
+
+  Local branches have been created containing:
+  
+  - new model and REST API
+  - new webconsole (remove of Echo framework)
+
+  These local branches will be merged on the 0.7-incubating branch (master).
+
+  Before Graduation:
+
+  - The documentation has been updated and aligned with the 0.6-incubating
+    release. The documentation will be promoted on the website and "linked"
+    in announcement e-mails as soon as the 0.6.1-incubating release has been
+    voted.
+  - The 0.7-incubating release will fix the graduation issue, especially in
+    term of license (removal of Echo2 framework for the UI).
+
+  Post Graduation:
+
+  - Kalumet scripts. It's the extension of the "software" concept globally
+    to all Kalumet resources. It will allow users to create custom
+    deployment/update plan, with a set of fine-grained steps.

+Kylin
+
+Kylin is a distributed and scalable OLAP engine built on Hadoop to support
+extremely large datasets.
+
+Kylin has been incubating since 2014-11-25.
+
+Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
+
+  1. Migrate source code and issue tracking from github.com to Apache Git
+     and JIRA
+  2. Make the first release from apache
+  3. Make project website available on apache
+
+Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be

+
+  * Nothing
+
+How has the community developed since the last report?
+
+  The community is growing. Several new members have started actively
+  contributing to the project. New contributors made a significant
+  contribution in develop new feature, fix bugs, refine web experience.  The
+  Kylin meetups at Bay Area and Beijing was well attended.  Apache Kylin has
+  been presented at Big Data Technology Conference 2014, Beijing which is
+  one of biggest Big Data conference in China.  Interest of people during
+  that event was great and engaged a lots of organizations and individuals,
+  many of them started to evaluate and joined Kylin community.
+
+How has the project developed since the last report?
+
+  1. The project setup is going quite well. Initial committers are
+     onboarding, JIRA, mailing list were successfully done, Web content has
+     been migrated to Apache Git but need tuning. Main source code migration
+     will be done in January 2015.
+  2. Bug fixing, enhancement are happing on current branch which

+NiFi
+
+NiFi is a dataflow system based on the concepts of flow-based programming.

+
+Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
+
+  1. Produce an initial release.
+  2. Grow our community beyond the initial set of committers.
+  3. Establish rhythm for releases, review processes, and document how to
+     most effectively bring on new committers.
+
+Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
+aware of?
+
+  Nothing we wish to raise at this time.
+
+How has the community developed since the last report?
+
+  The dev mailing list has picked up 20 new e-mails since the last report
+  and is now at 62 (commits has grown to 25).
+
+  At the suggestion of the community we've adopted a review-then-commit
+  strategy which is designed to among other things help with community
+  development.
+
+  We've received several patches from members outside the initial committer
+  list including changes which dramatically improved our build process and
+  provide new extensions.
+
+How has the project developed since the last report?
+
+  All of our current infrastructure needs are setup and things are working
+  really well.  Our focus now is on working towards our first release which
+  is 0.0.1 and presently comprised of 85 JIRA issues the vast majority of
+  which are resolved.  We've conducted a thorough review of all source files
+  to ensure proper license headers/notices/disclaimers are present.  We've
+  completed a thorough review and modification of the overall LICENSE and
+  NOTICE files in preparation for release.  We've conducted the initial

+NPanday
+
+NPanday allows projects using the .NET framework to be built with Apache
+Maven.
+
+NPanday has been incubating since 2010-08-13.
+
+Shepherd/Mentor notes:
+
+  P. Taylor Goetz (ptgoetz):
+
+    NPanday has missed the last two reports (last report August 2014). One
+    of two mentors are engaged and encouraging the podling to make a final
+    release before retiring (last release was on 2011-05-17). However, there
+    is little PPMC/Committer involvement with only 2 PPMC members showing
+    involvement on the dev@ list in the past year. Also confirmed that a
+    report reminder email was received by the dev@ list for each of the last
+    missed reporting periods as well at the current period.
+
+    It's clear that mentors past and present have attempted to help the
+    NPanday project grow to a viable size -- at least enough to approve a
+    release, new Committer/PPMC Member, or even decide to retire -- without
+    success.
+
+    The main warning signs appear to be:
+
+    * Inability to reach community consensus (barely 2 acive Committer/PPMC
+      Members, making 3 +1s for any vote very difficult)
+    * Inability to perform releases
+    * Inability to grow the community to a viable size
+
+    The issues listed above do not indicate a lack of mentor involvement,
+    but rather a community in decline.

+OpenDocument Format (ISO/IEC 26300 == ODF) documents
+
+ODF Toolkit has been incubating since 2011-08-01.
+
+Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
+
+  1. Grow the community in terms of committers
+  2. Have regular releases
+  3. Decide if we would like to be a top level project or join an existing
+     project, or move to the attic.
+
+Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
+aware of?
+
+  No new.
+
+How has the community developed since the last report?
+
+  We have made a release but there has been little activity since then.
+  
+  We still need to attract more members and publicizing the project in the

+
+    Ranger suffered a bit from a renaming issue that came up.  Activity on
+    the lists is a little bit lighter since, but I'm sure will bounce back.
+    I'm concerned over inability to access the wiki though, sent a note to
+    the podling to request proper access.

+Attachment AC: Report from the Apache Isis Project  [Dan Haywood]
+
+Apache Isis is a framework to enable the creation of software using
+domain-driven design principles, being an implementation of the naked
+objects architectural pattern
+
+
+== Activity ==
+
+Mailing list activity has been steady; user mailing list subscriptions 
+are unchanged (some turnover) but the number of mailing list messages is 
+increasing with some good contributions from the user community.
+
+We have also started to get more code contributions from the community, one of 
+which has been quite substantial.
+
+In the last report we described how we are have created a new "Isis Addons"
+website [1] and have moved some components out of the framework's codebase.  To
+clarify the relationship, these are external to the framework for several
+reasons:
+* they tend to be code that either runs on top of Isis (reusable domain logic
+  entities) or implementations of optional hooks that Isis exposes (services
+  such as auditing, security).
+* as such, they have a different cadence to the framework "proper"
+* we wanted less formality, leveraging github collaboration capabilities
+* also, to allow for contributions that would not be compliant with ASF 
+  license restrictions, eg if dependent on LGPL.
+* (as noted previously) to reduce the size of the Isis codebase so that it
+  can be more clearly focussed on its core responsibilities.
+  
+== Development and Releases ==
+
+Isis rate of development has increased this quarter.  As noted in the previous
+report,  Eurocommercial Properties NV are sponsoring the development of Isis
+for two Isis committers, Martin Grigorov (also a Wicket committer), and myself.
+
+In addition, there is another small client that is now sponsoring our time to
+implement some additional capabilities of the framework.  This client was
+introduced to us by Oscar Bou, another Isis committer.
+
+This quarter we made one new release, v1.7.0 on 18 Oct 2014 [2].
+
+
+== Committers and PMC ==
+
+There has been one new committer added and change to the PMC this quarter
+* last committer added: Martin Grigorov, 4 Dec 2014 [3]
+* last PMC change: Martin Grigorov, 13 Dec 2014
+
+

+advanced enterprise mail server.
+
+ISSUES
+
+There are no issue requiring board attention at this time.
+
+RELEASES
+
+No new release (last release done on 19 March 2013).
+
+OVERALL ACTIVITY
+
+Some code has been committed on the mime4j module related to refactoring
+and patch submission by user.
+
+The mailing list activity and patch submission for the server component
+has been mainly generated by the users.
+
+Activity on server code commits remains too low. The discussion at PMC level
+on this point has not yet been started.
+
+We received on 16. October 2014 a vulnerability report followed by a mail from
+CERT to track the open VU#988628. We will now handle this in an urgent way.

+Attachment AE: Report from the Apache jclouds Project  [Andrew Phillips]
+
+A cloud agnostic library that enables developers to access a variety of
+supported cloud providers using one API.
+
+Project Status
+--------------
+jclouds has carried out one successful release (1.8.1) in the last quarter and
+is currently discussing the planning of the next major (1.9.0) release.
+
+The developer and user community remains active, with a welcome increase in
+involvement by new contributors. The PMC is trying to streamline the project
+structure and process for contributions in order to make best possible use of 
+limited core team time and in order to encourage continued interest and
+involvement from cloud developers.
+
+Community
+---------
+Last committer: 2014-07-30 (Andrea Turli)
+Last PMC member: 2014-11-30 (Chris Custine)
+
+As resolved at the October 2014 board meeting, the PMC chair is currently
+Andrew Phillips.
+
+The jclouds PMC would like to express its sincere thanks to Adrian Cole, who
+recently left the PMC, for his years of work in building jclouds and growing
+the jclouds community.
+
+Community Objectives
+--------------------
+What are the projects main plans and expectations for the community in the
+next period?
+
+* Establish consensus on the core purpose and functionality of the project
+moving forward and focus on ensuring this continues to be delivered
+* Establish clear guidance on the expectations around new contributions
+(technical and in terms of the type of contributions likely to be accepted)
+* Provide example code demonstrating current best coding and design practices
+* Create a more predictable "graduation path" for new contributions
+* Reduce overhead of the project setup to simplify releases and maintenance of
+core functionality

+
+* General Information
+
+  * Work on plugin releases to define common 2.2.1 minimum Maven version
+    and Java 5 requirements continues: we created an automated report [1]
+    that shows 33 plugins are ready from 49. Once finished, we expect to
+    start 3.x line of plugins with Maven 3 and Java 6 minimum requirements.
+
+  * There was a contest to create a new Maven logo and create a mascot: 
+    the winning logo is [2] and the winning mascot (officially christened) 
+    "The Maven Owl" [3]. Work is now in progress to integrate it to the Maven
+    site.
+
+  * We're studying Jira migration from Codehaus to Apache for better end-users
+    consistency, since we've got feedback about users lost when requiring to
+    create a Jira account at Codehaus.
+
+  * Compliance with ASF source header policy
+
+    We enabled rat check on every build in maven-parent POM 25 to ensure full

+Attachment AW: Report from the Apache OpenOffice Project  [Andrea Pescetti]
+
+Apache OpenOffice is an open-source, office-document productivity
+suite providing six productivity applications based around the
+OpenDocument Format (ODF). OpenOffice is released on multiple
+platforms and in dozens of languages.
+
+### Issues for Board Awareness
+1) Andrea Pescetti, the current PMC Chair, gave his availability
+to resign as soon as a successor can be elected: after 2 years it's
+time for a rotation. Discussions are still ongoing, so the
+resolution won't arrive in time for the January Board meeting.
+
+2) The Apache OpenOffice community is still struggling in
+involving new volunteers who can independently work on big
+developments. Lack of appropriate mentors is still the main issue.
+
+3) Following the many discussions we had in 2014, OpenOffice now
+needs a replacement for Apache Extras. SourceForge provided a
+proof of concept that could work for us, but we prefer that the new
+location for Apache Extras is decided at an ASF-wide level (i.e.,
+that, as it used to be the case, all Apache projects put their
+"Extras" in a common space).
+
+### Community Development/Outreach Progress
+Since the last report, the project added two PMC members:
+Michael and Mechtilde Stehmann (mikeadvo, mechtilde) in
+December 2014. The latest committer addition is from May 2014 (tal).
+
+We continue to see new volunteers who would like to be involved,
+but we are able to use them for relatively easy tasks only, since we
+are still witnessing a reduced level of activity (in terms of both
+contributed lines of code and e-mails to the dev list) from more
+experienced developers.
+
+The OpenOffice custom infrastructure (wiki, forum) is now out of the
+"minimal maintenance" mode and is assigned to Jan Iversen.
+
+A new documentation effort for an end-users manual under the ALv2
+licence is stalled, even though new volunteers show up regularly.
+The problem is still the lack of appropriate coordinators/mentors.
+
+The localization community is growing, with new volunteers and new
+languages.
+
+A survey run just before ApacheCon EU showed that we have a lot
+on unexpressed potential in our volunteers, especially for
+non-development tasks. The challenge is now to implement the "better
+tools" and "better guidance" that these volunteers asked for, in
+several fields, from documentation to marketing to QA.
+
+OpenOffice had a dedicated track at ApacheCon Budapest, with
+talks spanning all the main project areas except core development.
+OpenOffice will have a dedicated booth and a devroom (shared
+with other OpenDocument Editors) at FOSDEM 2015, 31 January in
+Brussels.
+
+The mailing lists for user support, localization, development are
+quite active, the marketing, documentation, QA lists are moderately
+active. Activity in social media is still good. Community support
+forums remain popular with users, with an average of over 100 posts
+per day.
+
+### Product/Project Development Progress
+Apache OpenOffice 4.1.2 is currently in the plans. It will be a
+bugfix release, but it will contain a major new feature in terms of
+packaging, with digitally signed installers and executables that
+will be accepted by modern Windows systems without warnings.
+Considering the many counterfeited sites offering variants of
+OpenOffice and the number of our users, this will be a significant
+milestone for the project.
+
+Activities that are still foreseen, but mostly stalled at the
+moment, include: actions for an easier installation and availability
+on mainstream Linux distributions; a new localization process, now
+progressing in the l10n40 branch; a rewritten OOXML filter,
+allowing import and (later) export.
+
+The download trend remains very strong: Apache OpenOffice passed the
+130 million downloads at the end of 2014.

+
+The Apache PDFBox library is an open source Java tool for working with PDF
+documents.
+
+General Comments
+----------------
+
+There are no issues that require Board attention.
+
+
+Community
+---------
+
+There is a steady stream of contributions and bug reports from the community.
+
+John Hewson and Tilman Hausherr were added as committers and PMC members to
+our ranks in February 2014.
+
+493 (481 last report) subscribers on the user@ list 
+149 (155 last report) subscribers on the dev@ list
+
+170 JIRA tickets were created and 233 were resolved in the past 3 months.
+
+Releases
+--------
+
+Version 1.8.8 was released on 13nd of December 2014. It is an incremental
+bugfix release based on PDFBox 1.8.x.
+
+Development:
+------------
+
+The work on our next major release is an ongoing effort. The main topics are:
+
+- switch to java 1.6
+- enhance the parser
+- code cleanup
+- enhance rendering
+- enhance font handling
+- add unicode support
+- reduce memory footprint
+
+The long-awaited new major release is still under construction and there is
+still a lot to do. Most of the bigger parts are done so that we see the light
+at the end of the tunnel.
+
+Software Quality
+----------------
+
+There is an ongoing effort to improve PDFBox based on the analysis of
+different tools such as SonarQube, FindBugs and others. Only last month we
+reduced the number of issues as reported SonarQube by 20%.
+
+We joined our forces with the Tika project. Tim Allison ran some tests on
+their huge pool of test files pdfs (> 50.000 pdfs) to
+- avoid regressions when preparing the PDFBox 1.8.8 bugfix release
+- get clearance for updating Tika to use PDFBox 1.8.8
+- find differences/areas for improvements comparing the new major release 2.0 
+to the current released version 1.8.x
+- avoid regressions when switching the parser
+- find areas for improvements/unsupported features and corner case pdfs not
+exactly following the pdf specs

+Attachment BC: Report from the Apache Struts Project  [Rene Gielen]
+
+The Apache Struts MVC framework is a solution stack for creating elegant
+and modern action-based Java web applications. It favors convention over
+configuration, is extensible using a plugin architecture, and ships with
+plugins to support technologies such as REST, AJAX and JSON.
+
+The Struts team made one release in the last quarter:
+* Struts 2.3.21 - feature, bug fix and security fix release (2014-12-08)
+
+The last quarter was dominated by stabilizing and releasing Struts
+2.3.20, which is a major feature and bug fix release with more than 140
+issues addressed. It also addresses a security issue known as
+CVE-2014-7809 / JVN#88408929 [1]
+
+We have made no progress in releasing a security fix version of the
+already EOLed Struts 1 framework. However, a workaround now exists which
+was developed and is provisioned externally. [2]
+
+In the last quarter we released a fully reworked web site, including a
+brand new Struts logo [1]. The design was kindly provided by
+SoftwareMill, a polish software development shop our fellow PMC member
+Łukasz Lenart is working for.
+
+Within the reporting period we saw a significant rise in discussion and
+planning efforts regarding a major new framework development line to be
+released as Struts 3.
+
+No new committers or PMC members have been added in the last quarter.
+Last PMC member addition was on 2013-05-11, last committer addition on
+2014-01-06.
+
+We have no issues that require board assistance at this time.

+growing a list over 1200 different file types including most of the major
+types in existence (MS Office, Adobe, Text, Images, Video, Code, and science
+data) as recognised by IANA and other standards bodies.
+
+Issues
+=========================
+There are no issues that need the boards attention.
+
+Releases
+=========================
+The last release (1.7) was made in January 2015[1], with many new features
+including an OCR Parser based on Tesseract, improvements to the Tika JAXRS
+Server and a number of parser fixes & enhancements.
+
+Discussions have now started on the dev@ list to outline a roadmap[2] for what
+a new 2.X stream could look like for the evolution of Tika.
+
+Community
+=========================
+The Tika PMC added Konstantin Gribov as a committer and PMC Member in January
+2015.
+
+Mailing list activity on dev@ was at 389, 253 and 289 messages in November,
+December and January 2014, respectively. user@ was at 10, 28 and 29 messages,

+
+Apache Tiles is a free open-sourced templating framework for modern Java
+applications. Based upon the Composite pattern it is built to simplify
+the development of user interfaces.
+
+This report is almost a carbon copy of the last one. There have been a couple of
+releases and some discussion of progress, but no real change in the pace of the
+project. I am submitting with this report a resolution to change the project
+chair. I am finding that I have less and less time to fulfill the duties and
+I don't want the project to suffer from my lack of time. I intend to remain on
+the PMC and provide help to the new chair and oversight of releases, etc.
+
+The Tiles project continues to move at a slow pace, but work is ongoing.
+In the last quarter the project has produced two releases:
+
+ * Tiles Request 1.0.6 GA
+ * Tiles 3.0.5 GA
+
+The community to Tiles remains the same, a largely stable project.
+The same one or two people have been continuing to do much of the
+development for Tiles. There remains a little traffic in the users list
+and in the issue tracker and these are responded to and/or fixed usually
+within the week. The Spring community, and stackexchange.com, reamain the
+most active inputs to the community.

+- A discussion thread was started on Aug 16 on both user and dev lists to
+request community input on new development plans. One response from a PMC
+member suggesting a new release to pick up updated dependencies.
+
+- The PMC chair indicated on Aug 21 on the private list his intention to step
+out of the PMC and asked for volunteers to replace him as he is too busy with
+other work. Given the absence of response from any other PMC members, he is
+continuing for now with the little spare time he has left.
+
+- Another discussion thread was started on Sep 17 on the private list asking
+if there were enough PMC members to get the project going. Three responses,
+one too busy to continue, another still following the mailing list without
+seeing a realistic prospect to get involved in a release or commit activity,

+Attachment BP: Report from the Apache Whirr Project  [Andrew Bayer]
+
+Apache Whirr is a library for running services like Hadoop or ZooKeeper in the
+cloud.
+
+Releases:
+No new releases this quarter. Last release was 0.8.2, April 2013.
+
+Community:
+The PMC composition did not change, and we had no new committers since
+the last report. The last PMC change was the addition of Andrew Bayer
+in November of 2012, and the last new committer was Graham Gear, also
+in November of 2012.
+
+Issues:
+No news - we need to start the process of going to the Attic.

+Attachment BQ: Report from the Apache Wink Project  [Luciano Resende]
+
+Apache Wink is a project that enables development and consumption of
+REST style web services. The core server runtime is based on the
+JAX-RS (JSR 311) standard. The project also introduces a client
+runtime which can leverage certain components of the server-side
+runtime. Apache Wink delivers component technology that can be easily
+integrated into a variety of environments.
+
+There are no issues that require Board attention at the moment.
+
+Community:
+The Wink project has a small community which is not very active. We have
+had discussions on how to increase community activity, but no concrete
+activity has actually been executed. Having said that, I believe Wink is 
+a mature project with active users and we should not consider any retirement
+actions at the moment. 
+Last svn activity shows couple patches being applied towards wink website 
+in August, but actually no code change since december 2013.
+Mailing lists are also slow as usual in the past year.
+
+Releases:
+* Last release was Apache Wink 1.4.0 which was released on September 15, 2013
+
+Committers or PMC changes:
+* Voted Gerhard Petracek was added as a Wink committer in August 2013.
+
+Trademark/Branding:
+* No known issues.
+
+Legal Issues:
+* None

+
+ 4. Executive Officer Reports
+
+    A. Chairman [Brett]
+
+       I've started to pull together the resources for the Annual meeting in
+       late March (after the next and final meeting of the current board).
+       I plan to set the record date and send out formal notices in the
+       next week.
+
+       I hope to encourage people unable to attend the meeting to submit
+       non-voting proxies well in advance of the meeting, and will see what
+       we can do to make that process easier. I also expect to perform the
+       Omnibus resolution using the voter tool again, so that we do not need
+       to pass any resolutions during the meeting itself.
+
+    B. President [Ross]
+
+       Branding: Shane has requested that Mark Radcliffe join the board meeting
+       during the discussion items to help us understand the role of trademarks
+       within the ASF. He will join at 11AM PT. I hope that we can make time for
+       this.
+
+       EA: Usual support work. Shane has requested that our EA help more with
+       branding items. This is something we have been offering for a long
+       time. We are working on identifying concrete ways in which we can
+       empower Melissa to take action. I intend to move Melissa too a PEO
+       organization (Virtual) assuming no surprises in the cost of doing so or
+       objections from Melissa (we do not expect it to increase ASF costs
+       significantly, if at al). This may be a temporary measure but as
+       previously reported we need to take action and this point a PEO is the
+       only viable option. See the vice Chairman report for more detail.
+
+       Branding: VP Brand Management expresses concern about management of our
+       brands in projects where the brand is highly valuable. Our policies
+       appear to be working to date. Delegating to the PMCs has spread the
+       workload sufficiently that increased vigilance on complex cases is not
+       posing a significant problem.  However, Shane warns that the recent
+       interest in external related foundations will only serve to increase
+       the brand management workload. shane has invites Mark Radcliff of
+       DLAPiper to speak to the board today, though this is not related to the
+       concerns raised. The discussion item is the importance of brand
+       management tot he ASF in preparation for budget planning.
+
+       Fundraising: We continue to iron out wrinkles in the Fundraising
+       process. Each month it seems to be running more smoothly. Processes are
+       sufficiently well defined for Hadrian to participate in the exploration
+       of a CRM for managing sponsor relations (something Melissa had
+       previously been driving in her own time), No decision has been made at
+       this point.
+
+       Marketing and Publicity: Sally produced our first quarterly report.
+       This is a good start though not quite what I had envisioned. We will
+       continue to work on and improve this in the coming quarters. Sally
+       helped with the CRM discussions and provided feedback to Hadrian. It is
+       not felt that VP Marketing requires a CRM, however, if possible I would
+       like to see us doing a better job of capturing knowledge from this
+       office. That being said, fundraising support remains the priority.
+       Sally has revisited the home page (not site) redesign discussions based
+       on extensive feedback from the membership.
+
+       Infrastructure: An excellent, productive month for Infra - well done
+       team!  Hardware budget is expected to be reduced thanks to a
+       combination of credit with multiple cloud providers. My thanks go to VP
+       Infra for making this happen. Whimsy was identified as a critical
+       service that infra need to manage.  This resulted in some discussion
+       about how best to manage the service. Sam Ruby has been working with
+       the infra team on this topic. There has been excellent progress on
+       automating machine builds and retiring old machines. In the case of
+       LDAP this introduced a few problems which are being addressed in order
+       of priority. We had some initial discussion about the CMS used by many
+       Apache projects. This system is very much hacked together and is
+       largely unmaintainable without significant expense. No decisions has
+       been made on how to proced, future reports will update. Some project
+       specific services  (Maven and Cassandra) are progressing nicely. 
+
+       No report from Travel Assistance. Plans for ApacheCon NA are in progress. 
+
+       Budget:; Budget planning is a little behind schedule but I do have
+       complete numbers from Virtual now. We are progressing with one office
+       having submitted their budget numbers already. Expect an early draft
+       within the week.
+
+       Additionally, please see Attachments 1 through 6.

+    C. Treasurer [Chris]
+
+        The 2013 990 Net Assets and other items have been clarified on our
+        tax preparation for FY2013. Everything seems in order and Chris and
+        Tom had a call to discuss on 1/23/15.
+        
+        The Treasurer’s Office initiated a series of wires to fully transfer
+        all of the remaining funds in WFS to Citizen’s Bank leaving a small
+        amount in WFS (less than 10K) to cover any incoming expenses. We
+        expect to finalize the remaining funds transfer and decommission
+        WFS in the next month.
+        
+        1099s for contractors have been issued by Virtual.
+        
+        Virtual has been working with VP, Press and Marketing for the year
+        in review reports and quarterly reports, providing financial data
+        and other information to assist in the report preparation.

+    D. Secretary [Craig]
+
+       Secretary continues to operate smoothly. In January, 65 iclas, three cclas,
+       and five grants were received and filed.
+
+    E. Executive Vice President [Rich]
+
+       I will be late to the meeting by about 30 minutes. I will be there to answer
+       questions, if any, by the end of the meeting.
+
+       I am scrambling to get the schedule for ApacheCon NA put together, and while
+       I've received a LOT of help from various people, the current CFP tools are
+       woefully inadequate for the task. However, we should have a schedule, and
+       keynotes, announced early next week.
+
+       Meanwhile, I have delegated most of the work for ApacheCon EU to Jan Iversen,
+       so that I'm not trying to do manage two events, and I am looking around for
+       someone that might be interested in stepping up to rotate ApacheCon NA events
+       with me.
+
+    F. Vice Chairman [Greg]
+    
+       Apologies for the short report, yet upon substative matter:
+       after speaking with Ross (President) and David (VP Infra), we
+       have decided to move one contractor to an employee status via
+       the PEO framework provided by Virtual as an experiment for the
+       next two months. At the May Board meeting, a complete solution
+       for all US-based contractors will be provided for Board review
+       and consideration.
+       
+       Background: there are two options remaining open: PEO-based
+       employment, and a third-party whole-option contract. Moving one
+       contractor to the PEO solution will provide us needed detail.

+Attachment 2: Report from the VP of Brand Management  [Shane Curcuru]
+
+Worked on clearing podling name search entries; however not all PPMCs are
+performing the needed steps before submitting.
+
+Submitted two educational talks on branding plus a potential barcamp/PMC
+tutorial at ApacheCon Austin.
+
+Denied a services branding request using a derivative of a registered Apache
+mark that would highly likely be infringing if used. While it is positive this
+third party requested permission first, it is puzzling why they would request
+permissions for something so clearly inappropriate.
+
+Requested branding updates related to improper use of our HADOOP mark on the
+new opendataplatform.org website.  As many popular Apache projects grow in
+widespread use and broad commercial interest, it will become more important
+than ever to ensure that our PMCs understand the importance of their
+trademarks in managing an independent project, and ensuring that they have the
+tools - education, access to counsel when needed, and the ability to register
+their marks - to do so.
+
+As a new website, the specific legal trademark issues on opendataplatform.org
+are limited (so far) and it's not clear how the relevant companies will
+present branding going forward.  However third party projects like this that
+blur the lines between their software product offerings and the underlying
+Apache software products are likely to cause other issues about end user
+confusion as to the true source of software, as well as concern with many
+developers who may be interested in contributing to Apache projects.

+Attachment 3: Report from the VP of Fundraising  [Jim Jagielski]
+
+Fundraising continues steadily. There are a number of sponsors who indicated
+that will renew, but are late to respond. I hope that more communication will
+improve things in time.  We did receive payments from Bloomberg, Hortonworks,
+Winwork, and Samsung.
+
+We are putting more effort in deciding on the CRM tool to manage the process.
+Hadrian got actively involved had a couple of chats with HotWax Media. It is
+very hard to find a solution that will make everybody happy. Hadrian did
+research open source alternatives and is now researching commercial, hosted
+alternatives. Hadrian is close to making a formal proposal, very likely using
+a hosted solution. The proposal and hopefully a decision should be done before
+the next board meeting.
+
+We made a recommendation to update the Thanks page and Daniel Gruno provided a
+concrete layout proposal. The proposal was accepted and Hadrian is working
+with Daniel to update the Thanks page.
+
+Hadrian had a couple of phone calls with sponsors. The goal is to improve the
+dialogue with the sponsors and find out what sponsors see as valuable and
+expect from the foundation.  We anticipate this to lead to ideas and proposals
+for improvements, discuss on the fundraising@ lists and report back to the
+board.
+
+Cloudera upgraded its sponsorship to Platinum level. Yay, thanks Cloudera!

+Attachment 5: Report from the VP of Infrastructure  [David Nalley]
+
+New Karma:
+==========
+none
+
+Finances:
+==========
+17.49  - Domain name renewals
+979.12 - Amazon Web Services
+
+As a side note, we expect to spend dramatically less on hardwware than
+we originally budgeted. This difference is coming about due to a number
+of issues: Our build farm has been dramatically subsidized thanks to
+Yahoo who have provided ~30 physical machines (a long with hosting the
+hardware and providing smarthands support). We also now have multiple
+cloud providers giving us extensive credits, and we are moving a number
+of services to public cloud providers. This does mean a slight change
+from capital expenses to operational expenses, though I don't think that
+from our perspective that it matters much. 
+
+Operations Action Items:
+========================
+n/a
+
+Short Term Priorities:
+======================
+
+Codesigning
+-----------
+Tomcat generated two signing events this month, both for Tomcat 8.0.18
+
+Machine deprecation
+-------------------
+We've made significant progress in moving services off of some of our oldest hosts.
+In doing so we've also have spent a good chunk of time automating these
+services and making our deployment more robust. See more on this issue
+in the section on Automation in Long Range Priorities. 
+
+Backups
+-------
+We are just now beginning the deployment of a new centralized backup service. 
+The client installation as well as the server has been autoamted, expect
+to see more in this space in the coming months. 
+
+LDAP
+----
+The LDAP service has largely been rebuilt from the ground up. For
+background, the old machine that formerly served as our svn master was
+also one of our LDAP machines, and when it failed, we were down to one
+very poorly performing instance in the US. Subsequently, we've rebuilt
+the entire service using configuration management, we again have two
+LDAP hosts in OSUOSL, that are easily handling the load. This has sped
+up many of the authn/authz actions that were slow last month. We've also
+deployed new LDAP instances to several of our cloud zones. While the
+services seems to be working well at this point, we did have a few
+hiccups, where the old LDAP servers were removing newly created
+accounts. The older LDAP servers were left in place after we repeatedly
+found a number of services that had either minotaur or harmonia
+hardcoded as LDAP servers. Because of these problems we removed the
+legacy instances, and are dealing with the problems caused as we find
+them. 
+
+Bugzilla
+--------
+Our three Bugzilla instances were still running on a 6 year old machine
+but have since been successfully puppetized and migrated to VMs in one of
+our cloud accounts. In the process we've worked fastidiously on improving
+the software deployment mechanism (software is now deployed as an
+OS-native package). 
+
+Long Range Priorities:
+======================
+
+Automation
+----------
+Significant progress to report this month. As indicated above, LDAP
+machines are all under configuration management. Additionally, we migrated
+all three of the Bugzilla instances and the git repositories to being
+completely managed by configuration management. After finding some
+problems with some of our CM-managed instances, we've adopted a process of
+destroying and recreating a service as a verification step prior to
+pressing a service into production status. 
+Naturally the new services we are bringing online, like the backup service
+are all managed under CM. 
+
+Technical Debt
+--------------
+The move of LDAP has uncovered a lot of hardcoded values and we've been
+working to pay that off. (referring to service names rather than
+specific machine identities, putting configuration in configuration
+management where possible. 
+
+General Activity:
+=================
+
+Bintray
+-------
+As of January 30th, we enabled Cassandra's debian repository on bintray
+and have been monitoring it closely. The service seems to be working
+well and appears to have fulfilled the needs of reducing our overall
+webserver traffic and has the bonus of giving more insight into the
+downlaods. You can see some of the statistics on the dashboard here:
+https://s.apache.org/bintray1
+https://s.apache.org/bintray2
+
+Maven
+-----
+
+A lot has been happening around Maven this period. 
+We've successfully been able to sync a copy of the Maven central
+repository, and are working to provide access to that store for the Maven
+PMC. 
+Additionally, Mark Thomas along with folks from the Maven PMC have been
+working on migrating the Maven contents of the Codehaus Jira instance to
+the ASF instance. Good progress has been made here, but much remains to be
+done.  
+
+
+Uptime Statistics:
+==================
+
+We experienced an issue where status.apache.org was reporting erroneous uptime
+statistics due to two unused LDAP checks, which unfortunately made it into the
+weekly ASF blog posts. Other than that, services have been running fairly
+smoothly aside from the Moin Moin Wiki which has experienced high load times
+for a couple of weeks. We are discussing what to do to remedy this. Overall,
+the total uptime for this year grew by 0.03%:
+
+
+Type:                Target:   Reality, total:  Reality, month:  Target Met:
+----------------------------------------------------------------------------
+Critical services:   99.50%             99.78%           99.82%      Yes
+Core services:       99.00%             99.83%           99.92%      Yes
+Standard services:   95.00%             99.02%           98.93%      Yes
+----------------------------------------------------------------------------
+Overall:             98.59%             99.60%           99.63%      Yes

+
+Tony Stevenson: 
+  - A lot of my time has been spent on 3 major tasks: 
+    - The rebuild of the LDAP service due to the poorly performing incumbent
+      instances. This combined with the retirement of eris (old svn-master) 
+      following a terminal hardware fault, we were limited to 1 LDAP instance
+      in the US and proved too much for minotaur to cope with. It appears that
+      the version of slapd on FreeBSD on minotaur leaked memory at a phenomonal
+      rate.  The new LDAP service has been moved to the latest slapd available
+      in Ubuntu 14.04, it has been fully built using puppet, and configured so
+      that new LDAP hosts can be added with ease.
+    - Continue preparation and understanding for a rebuild the email
+      infrastructure. This has mostly taken a back seat but has been brought up
+      to the top of my todo list now following the completion of the LDAP task
+      above, and the CMS task below.
+    - In line with our current policy of retiring hardware that is over 4 years
+      old, and trying to make all services pupept managed; David asked me to
+      review the CMS zone on baldr (which is now >7 years old) to ensure we can
+      move the service and have it managed with puppet. However upon
+      investigation it quickly became apparent moving the service was far from
+      trivial given the requirement for ZFS alone.  Further reading of the code
+      highlighted some areas of concern for me that I felt needed highlighting
+      as they would likely carry over technical debt into the future and that
+      is something we are working extremely hard to remove.  On the back of
+      these findings and my inherited knowledge of the service I presented
+      David with 3 options of how I thought we could manage the service going
+      forward along with the estimated costs, and the pro's and con's of each
+      option. There were: 
+      1 - Move CMS to another FreeBSD host - undesireable given our current
+          trajectory of moving away from FreeBSD, it meant entirely replicating
+          the FreeBSD 9 jail too. This was the path of least change, but 
+          perhaps most difficult.
+      2 - Move the service to Ubuntu and fully puppet controlled the beginning.
+          This might have been the ideal scenario, but the underlying hardcoded
+          FreeBSD aspects, the need for ZFS (which is present in Ubuntu), and 
+          the very specific perl that is in place I felt this would take a long
+          time to complete and would be significantly error prone. We would 
+          very likely miss something and this would need to fixed on demand. My
+          confidence level was low that we could execute a clean migration. 
+          This would be the most time consuming option, but if retention of the
+          CMS was important the best option.
+      3 - Deprecate the CMS, and allow projects to determine their own
+          publishing/transformations options. We would still require use of 
+          pubsub technology, but projects can commit into that their HTML, 
+          either directly edited or dervied from markdown whcih they can keep
+          in their project repo (some of the finer details will need to be 
+          worked out later. This would essentially be the cheapest option,
+          remove technical debt, and while the timeline would be many months
+          contractor/volunteer time could be kept to a minimum.

+Attachment I: Report from the Apache BookKeeper Project  [Ivan Kelly]
+
+BookKeeper is a distributed, reliable, and high performance
+logging service. The project also includes Hedwig which is
+a highly scalable Pub/Sub service built on top of ZooKeeper
+and BookKeeper with strong durability guarantees.
+
+= Project Status =
+
+We made a press release, announcing our move to TLP, through the
+foundation on 2015-01-27. This triggered Yahoo to publish a blog post
+about their internal usage of BookKeeper in their cloud messaging
+service.
+
+Development activity has been low this month, due to the committers
+being occupied with other projects in their jobs. The two committers
+who had been working for Yahoo, left the company in the January. As
+Yahoo is one of the primary users of BookKeeper, it is bad that they
+lack anyone internally to commit on the Apache project. We are
+currently working on trying to find someone else to become a committer
+from Yahoo.
+
+= Releases =
+Our last release was 4.2.4, released on 2015-01-22.
+
+We are in the process of cutting a release for 4.3.1, which we expect
+to release before the end of February
+
+= Community Status =
+There have been no committers added since we became TLP (2014-11-19).

+Apache Cocoon 3 is a major rewrite of Cocoon 2.2. Like Cocoon 2 it is based

+PMC changes
+-----------
+
+Daniel Gruno has been voted into the Community Development PMC on 2015-01-08.
+
+Since artifacts produced by ComDev are usually documentation on our website
+which is writable for all Apache committers, we usually do not add committers
+to the ComDev project.

+
+GSoC applications are open for organizations and the ASF will submit an
+application again this year. A call for project ideas has been issued to
+projects. Initial responses were low in numbers but in the meantime we have
+gathered 88 project ideas at http://s.apache.org/gsoc2015ideas which should be
+enough for getting started.

+revolve around ApacheCon 2015 in Austin with feedback and contributions coming
+from all corners of the foundation.

+Attachment Z: Report from the Apache Empire-db Project  [Francis De Brabandere]
+
+Apache Empire-db is a relational database abstraction layer that allows 
+developers to take a more SQL-centric approach in application development 
+than traditional ORM frameworks. Its focus is to allow highly efficient 
+database operations in combination with a maximum of compile-time-safety 
+and DBMS independence.
+
+Progress of the project
+
+With our latest stable release there has been little demand for changes of 
+the codebase during the past three months. However the documentation on the 
+web page has been extended describing how to generate code from an existing 
+database.

+Attachment AB: Report from the Apache Falcon Project  [Srikanth Sundarrajan]
+
+ABOUT
+-----
+Falcon is a data processing and management solution for Hadoop
+designed for data motion, coordination of data pipelines,
+lifecycle management, and data discovery. Falcon enables end
+consumers to quickly onboard their data and its associated
+processing and management tasks on Hadoop clusters.
+
+
+ISSUES
+------
+There are no issues that require board's attention at this time.
+
+
+STATUS
+------
+Falcon was accepted as a TLP in December 2014. During the last 30
+days 33 new issues were created in the issue tracking system and
+30 were closed during the same period. During the last month we
+have witnessed good progress on the UI front for Falcon (FALCON-790).
+With UI, we expect users to find it more easier to work with the
+Falcon system. The community has been having regular bi-weekly
+sync ups. These sync ups are being very helpful in steering the
+project. Recipes (FALCON-634) and Lifecycle functions (FALCON-965)
+would open up Falcon system for easy extensions and are being
+actively worked upon besides other bug fixes. Community is also
+discussing on mailing list on the way forward with respect to usage
+of Apache Oozie for orchestration. The outcome will decide how
+pipeline and lifecycle function orchestration will happen in
+Falcon going forward. We also announced Falcon as a TLP in ASF
+blog (http://s.apache.org/GT2)

+  Most recent addition: 2009-06-09
+
+New committers:
+  None.
+  Most recent addition: 2009-06-09
+
+General status:
+  The most recent release is 0.9 on 2011-02-07.
+
+  No activity on the user mail list.
+
+  There was more activity on the dev mail list.
+  Two PMC members discussed a potential improvement and the originator
+  did follow through. They also assisted each other with strange erroneous
+  messages from Buildbot. An emeritus PMC member returned to make some
+  changes as a committer, was welcomed, and two separate PMC members did
+  followup queries.
+
+  Just prior to report submission a discussion commenced about a potential
+  new skin based on Bootstrap. 
+
+  The Chair reminded the dev list that the project needs to make releases.
+
+  The Chair replied to some obscure comment regarding the previous Board
+  report, but there was no further followup (see 2014-11-25).
+
+  At this quarter, 5 additional PMC members responded to my draft report.
+  This confirms that there are sufficient people hanging around for us to
+  potentially be able to make a decision or encourage new contributors.
+
+Project status:
+  Activity: Low.
+  3+ people have indicated presence, so has sufficient oversight.
+
+Security issues reported:
+  None.
+
+Progress of the project:
+  Some improvements to i18n for the search box and the font size button.
+  Minor tweaks to the i18n documentation.
+
+  Some improvements to Javascript handling.
+
+  Infra advised us that the machine hosting the Forrest project's build and
+  demo server is being decommissioned. One of our PMC members asked for a
+  new VM via the issue INFRA-9093.

+Corinthia
+
+Corinthia is a toolkit/application for converting between and editing common
+office file formats, with an initial focus on word processing. It is
+designed to cater for multiple classes of platforms - desktop, web, and
+mobile - and relies heavily on web technologies such as HTML, CSS, and
+JavaScript for representing and manipulating documents. The toolkit is
+small, portable, and flexible, with minimal dependencies. The target
+audience is developers wishing to include office viewing, conversion, and
+editing functionality into their applications.
+
+Corinthia has been incubating since 2014-12-08.
+
+Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:

+HTrace
+
+HTrace is a tracing framework intended for use with distributed systems
+written in java.
+
+HTrace has been incubating since 2014-11.
+
+Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
+
+  1. Continue to grow the HTrace community
+  2. Continue to develop and release stable HTrace incubating artifacts
+  3. Continue to explore the integration of the HTrace framework into other
+     Apache products
+
+Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
+aware of?
+
+  Around January 20th HTrace successfully made the first release whilst in
+  the Apache Incubator.  This was the outcomes of no-less than 10 release
+  candidates and as many VOTE's.  In all every release candidate was very
+  well managed with HTrace community providing excellent feedback to the
+  release manager. Rather than then entire 10 release candidate exercise
+  being a pain point for the community, it appears to have strengthened all
+  involved. Well done HTrace.
+
+How has the community developed since the last report?
+
+  It is early incubating days for HTrace. The community has attracted in
+  particular a new member who is doing a sterling job on a new UI for
+  HTrace. Additionally it should be noted that the entire
+  htrace-3.1.0-incubating release effort has certainly brought the existing
+  community on leaps and bounds.
+
+How has the project developed since the last report?
+
+  The project has progressed significantly. In fact, it was highlighted on
+  at least one occasion that documentation supporting a release candidate
+  should be further clarified/improved due to the dynamic progressive nature
+  of the HTrace codebase. As an early incubating project this is accepted as
+  a positive move.

+Slider
+
+Slider is a collection of tools and technologies to package, deploy, and
+manage long running applications on Apache Hadoop YARN clusters.
+
+Slider has been incubating since 2014-04-29.
+
+Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
+
+  1. Building a diverse developer and user community
+  2. Achieving broader adoption of the existing code and slider-deployable
+     applications (examples: HBase, Accumulo)
+  3. Making slider better at deploying other applications, so improving
+     takeup.
+
+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?
+
+  We're getting more people on the mailing list asking for improvements;
+  anyone with a patch is being helped to get it in. That builds up the
+  developer base and is intended to move it from a single team to one
+  distributed community development.  As we grow, we're proposing moving
+  from a single slider developer list to:a separate user mailing list, and a
+  third list for the JIRA/svn/git events. This will focus the developer list
+  around discussion, with a user list to help build that user community. We
+  do of course expect developers to also subscribe to the user list.
+
+How has the project developed since the last report?
+
+  We've done a source-only release in November, 0.60.0-incubating, in sync
+  with features in Hadoop 2.6, with a binary packing version,
+  0.61.0-incubating has just been voted for release (3-feb 2015); the
+  incubator vote is now pending. It was nice to see tests and a vote on the
+  release from an external user & patch submitter -community engagement
+  includes things like this.
+
+  A new release, 0.70 is being created with the release planned
+  mid-February. This will include improved features and fixes —especially
+  those reported by users of the 0.60 release. For example, one group wanted
+  short-lived applications on secure clusters, instances where Slider does
+  not need to worry about keytab expiry. Another need of people writing
+  slider-deployed applications was for a placement policy of "only ever ask
+  for component placement where instances were before"; this is needed for
+  Kafka.
+
+  Some of the feature requests are quite "ambitious", especially those
+  related to deployed components providing information back to the Web/REST
+  GUIs, and extending the configuration model to include: more
+  on-target-machine configuration, per-instance configuration and better
+  strategies for placing components within the YARN cluster. These requests
+  do represent real needs; even if they are long term features we need to
+  think about how to get there.
+
+  We're discussing supplementing the dev@ mailing list with issues@ and
+  user@ lists; the issues list for all JIRA updates -creation and completion
+  would still go to the developer list. This is to separate the noise of
+  JIRA-centric development from a developer list focused on broader
+  application features and building a community. We don't want to scare
+  people off from too much JIRA, or worse: lose what they have to say in the
+  emails. Similarly, the user@ list is where we want to encourage users. The
+  original rationale for a single list was "one single community
+  discussion", but it's not clear its worked out that way.

+Attachment AS: Report from the Apache Lenya Project  [Richard Frovarp]
+
+The Apache Lenya CMS is a Cocoon based XML/XHTML content management
+system.
+
+Issues:
+
+The board submitted several questions to the PMC after the last report.
+
+1) No commits
+  - It appears that there are few places using Lenya yet. Most of the
+    previous committers have moved their development efforts on to new
+    places
+2) No releases
+  - There haven't been any releases as there haven't been any commits
+    that have warrented a new release. So while there are the PMC numbers
+    to vote on a release, no one has fealt that unreleased changes are
+    worth a release.
+3) Questions on the list
+  - Questions aren't being asked, so they aren't being answered. Queries
+    to the list aren't being ignored.
+
+The board follow up sparked conversation on list about options. It seems
+that the community feels that it is a good time to move to the attic.
+
+A formal vote on the resolution will be held. The voting time as per the
+Lenya guidelines would call for a one week voting period. That means
+that the resolution, if passed, would appear on next months agenda.
+
+Development:
+
+No new releases this quarter.
+Last release: 2.0.4 on 2011-03-14

+Community:
+
+Last change to community was PMC addition in October 2011.

+Apache Mahout has implementations of a wide range of machine learning and
+data mining algorithms: clustering, classification, collaborative filtering
+and frequent pattern mining
+
+Project Status
+--------------
+
+The project continues to have a large and active user base.  Development
+continues by a small number of dedicated individuals.  The PMC is reviewing
+how we can improve contributions as well as exploring other options to make
+sure the project remains viable to the user base.
+
+
+Community
+---------
+
+* As per the status, the main issue is we have only 2-3 committers who are
+contributing on a regular basis.  While they are doing good work, it is
+concerning from a sustainment issue.  We are discussing as a PMC how
+to rectify this situation.  The main issue is that developing machine learning
+libraries is involved process that is hard to do on a part time basis and
+we have yet to find anyone that can be dedicated full time to the project.
+
+
+
+Community Objectives
+--------------------
+
+Identify next steps for either growing the list of active committers or
+finding an appropriate home for the code that exists (attic or elsewhere).

+Attachment AW: Report from the Apache ManifoldCF Project  [Karl Wright]
+
+ManifoldCF PMC Chair: Karl Wright (kwright@apache.org)
+Date: February 2015
+
+Project description
+==============
+
+ManifoldCF is an effort to provide an open source framework for connecting
+source content repositories like Microsoft Sharepoint and EMC Documentum, to
+target repositories or indexes, such as Apache Solr, OpenSearchServer or
+ElasticSearch. ManifoldCF also defines a security model for target
+repositories that permits them to enforce source-repository security policies.
+
+Releases
+========
+
+ManifoldCF graduated from the Apache Incubator on May 16, 2012.  Since then,
+there have been ten major releases, including a 1.8 and 2.0 release on
+December 26, 2014, and a corresponding pair of point releases on February 3,
+2015.  The next major release is scheduled for April 30, 2015.
+
+ManifoldCF is now in the position of supporting both a legacy set of releases
+(1.x), and a non-backwards-compatible set of releases (2.x).  We plan to
+continue this dual support for a period of roughly one year.
+
+Committers and PMC membership
+=============================
+
+The last committer we signed up was Alessandro Benedetti (abenedetti), on
+October 10, 2014.
+
+Mailing list activity
+=====================
+
+Mailing list has been somewhat less active than last quarter, but still
+robust.  Most of our connectors now have significant use cases and
+constituencies.  Dev list comments for this period centered around the
+ManifoldCF 2.0 release.  There were plenty of people looking for integration
+advice as well.  I am unaware of any mailing-list question that has gone
+unanswered.
+
+Outstanding issues
+==================
+
+Release upload to the dist.apache.org svn repository is quite slow, and takes
+well over an hour for a single ManifoldCF release candidate.  We raised this
+issue with Infra but did not manage to resolve it.
+
+Branding
+========
+
+We have reviewed the site branding guidelines and believe we are now compliant
+with these, with the possible exception of (TM) signs in logos from other
+Apache products that don't have any such marks.  Hopefully we will be able to
+correct this issue soon.

+
+The Apache Santuario project is aimed at providing implementation of

+
+The PMC continues to actively manage the project, and there are no issues or
+concerns to report to the board at this time.
+
+There were two new bug-fix releases of the Apache XML Security for Java
+project over the last quarter, 2.0.3 and 1.5.8. There were 25 commits to the

+Attachment BR: Report from the Apache SIS Project  [Adam Estrada]
+
+Apache SIS is a spatial framework that enables better representation of
+coordinates for searching, data clustering, archiving, or any other
+relevant spatial needs.
+
+Development:
+ Started the port of the framework to be used for map projections.
+
+ Work by newly added committer (Marc Le Bihan in November) on Shapefile
+format.
+
+Community:
+Following on the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) meeting in December, OGC
+would like to start a discussion with a larger community about geospatial
+API. One reason is the fact that many projects take the XSD published by OGC
+(e.g. [1]) as a starting point, then translate them to Java API using JAXB or
+Eclipse. The result is a hardly usable API, but those projects continue to
+use this approach. Apache SIS is one of the few projects trying to push for
+standardization by OGC of a clean Java API. Consequently we are invited to
+speak again about this issue in the next OGC meeting (March), to a wider
+audience than previous meeting.
+
+Branding:
+Community board report drafts are now on Google Docs and available to those
+who have the URL [2]
+
+Issues:
+New PMC member (Marc Le Bihan) still not added to the LDAP. Attempts by
+Martin Desruisseaux and Adam Estrada to execute “modify_committee.pl sis
+-add=mlebihan” resulted in following error message:
+
+Insufficient access at /usr/local/bin/modify_group_members.pl line 102
+modify_group_members.pl failed: 255
+
+The Maven snapshot repositories [3] is polluted with old releases. A JIRA
+task has been filled to INFRA for this issue [4], but the task has been
+closed without being actually fixed. We apparently do not have the karma to
+reopen the task. But the issue is not SIS-specific anyway. More generally:
+how do we cleanup the snapshot repository after a release? We mean, how to
+delete all “0.5-SNAPSHOT” artifacts after the version number has been
+increased to “0.6-SNAPSHOT”?
+
+Releases:
+SIS 0.5 release this week (around February 11th). We are late on the
+schedule, both on the release time (it was initially planned for December)
+and on the release content (it contains only a fraction of what we said would
+be in Apache SIS 0.5). Consequently this release is more like a milestone
+than a full-featured release.

+offers high-level APIs in Java, Scala, and Python as well as a rich set of
+libraries including stream processing, machine learning, and graph analytics. 
+
+Project status: 
+
+- We posted our 1.2.0 release in December, with contributions from 172
+developers. Major features included stable APIs for Spark's graph
+processing module (GraphX), a high-level pipeline API for machine
+learning, an external data source API, better H/A for streaming, and
+networking performance optimizations.
+
+- We posted the Spark 1.2.1 maintenance release on February 9th, with
+contributions from 69 developers.
+
+- We cut a release branch and started QA for Spark 1.3.0, which should
+be released sometime in March. Some features coming there include a
+data frame API similar to R and Python, write support for external data
+sources, and quite a few new machine learning algorithms.
+
+- We had a discussion about adding a committer role to the project that
+is separate from PMC (before, Spark had PMC = C) to bring in people
+sooner, and decided to do that from this point on.

+
+Apache Subversion exists to be universally recognized and adopted as
+an open-source, centralized version control system characterized by
+its reliability as a safe haven for valuable data; the simplicity of
+its model and usage; and its ability to support the needs of a wide
+variety of users and projects, from individuals to large-scale
+enterprise operations.
+
+* Board Issues
+
+  There are no Board-level issues of concern.
+
+* Community
+
+  The community is getting ready to branch 1.9.x as part of our
+  release process. Assuming the branch occurs in the next week or two,
+  then the release should appear late March or early April.
+  
+  There is some planning in-process for a Subversion hackathon to
+  occur around the same time as ApacheCon (Austin).
+  
+  Mailing list activity:
+  
+    users@ (779 subscribers): 390 messages across Nov/Dec/Jan.
+    dev@ (330 subscribers): 583 messages across Nov/Dec/Jan.
+
+  Our last PMC addition was February 2014, and our last (non-PMC)
+  committer was added in July 2013.
+
+* Releases
+
+  The project made two releases to resolve CVE-2014-3580 and
+  CVE-2014-8108:

+
+
+Community
+
+The mailing lists' traffic has returned quite stable, the number of subscribers
+to user@ and dev@ has again slightly increased if compared to last quarter.
+
+New and coming users are asking for support and reporting bugs; in some cases
+patches are also provided, fact that can constitute ground for discussion about
+inviting new committers.
+
+Besides bugfixing of current stable release from the 1_2_X branch, we have
+started a deep code re-organization towards next stable release, which will
+also include a consistent contribution we received lately about integration
+with Camel.
+
+The PMC has briefly discussed in January about the opportunity to rotate the
+PMC chair; such discussion brought anyway to confirmation of the current chair.

+Attachment BY: Report from the Apache TomEE Project  [David Blevins]
+
+Apache TomEE delivers enterprise application containers and services
+based on, but not limited to the Enterprise JavaBeans Specification
+and Java Enterprise Edition Specifications.
+
+Work on TomEE 2.0 has slowed.  The 2.x branch now passes the Java EE 6
+Web Profile TCK, however work towards Java EE 7 compliance is
+understandably difficult.  The 2.x branch now passes the CDI 1.2 TCK,
+which is openly available from RedHat.  Some work has been done to
+integrate ActiveMQ 6 into TomEE 2.x.  The community is running out of
+threads to pull on Java EE 7 without a TCK.
+
+Meanwhile the TomEE 1.7.x branch remains the center of the day-to-day.
+A version 1.7.2 is likely to come out in the next quarter.  This will
+be the first release since the project switched from SVN to Git.  The
+change in SCM went fairly smooth despite the kind of "the rails are
+off" discussions that arise from being now largely unrestricted.  The
+community is trying out various Git flows.  This will probably
+continue for quite a while before the dust truly settles.
+
+Website traffic still slowly increasing and at an overall high of
+around 72k visits/month.  User list traffic stable compared to the
+last 6 months, but down from last year.  This would seem to be
+indicative of a community in stabilizing/maintenance mode, but growing
+popularity.
+
+Last release was 1.7.1 on 2014-09-15.  Last committer was added
+November 2013.  Last PMC addition was 2010-08-26.

+Attachment CD: Report from the Apache Xalan Project  [Steven J. Hathaway]
+
+The Apache Xalan Project develops and maintains libraries and programs 
+that transform XML documents using XSLT standard stylesheets. Our subprojects 
+use the Java and C++ programing languages to implement the XSLT libraries. 
+
+Xalan is a mature project, but we are hoping to acquire more committers
+who can upgrade the project to address the newer XPath and XSLT standards.
+
+ISSUES FOR THE BOARD
+  None.
+
+CURRENT ACTIVITY
+
+Xalan is a mature product.  There is little development activity other
+than patch maintenance.  Most of the activity is in the Xalan-J subproject.
+
+The Incubator Corinthia project since ApacheCon EU 2014 has been soliciting
+expertise from Xalan.  We are providing what we can with limited resources.
+
+We are planning an appearance at ApacheCon NA 2015.

+49 separate commits to SVN. This breaks down into some feature development
+for Complex Script support, and some bug fixing in preparation for the
+release. There were some discussions about starting the release, but the
+Complex Script development is still in progress. The decision is to wait
+for this to be completed. The mailing lists are fairly quiet, with only 8
+e-mails to the users list this quarter.
+
+There was an e-mail received on January 23, 2015 Entitled: Vulnerability in
+Apache Batik Framework (Responsible Disclosure). The team has discussed
+this vulnerability, and we’ve contacted our primary Batik developer. One
+committer has agreed to review & commit a PATCH as soon as one has been
+submitted. We hope to have this issue resolved as quickly as possible.
+
+There were no releases this quarter.
+
+The latest version is 1.7 (6 January 2008)

-
- 4. Executive Officer Reports
-
-    A. Chairman [Brett]
-
-       The main topic of discussion on the board list over the last month has
-       been release practices. As it progressed, it was good to see that
-       ongoing operational concerns were handled separately from discussion
-       about how to do more frequent releases within the bounds of current
-       ASF policy. Releasing open source software to the public is one of the
-       most fundamental things we do, so it is important that it is handled
-       diligently.
-
-       We're getting closer to the time where we need to prepare for the
-       Annual Members Meeting, so I've started to canvas dates. Currently the
-       first week of June seems the most feasible, but I've included a
-       discussion item in the agenda to decide.
-
-       The ASF received an invitation to participate in the "2014 Future of
-       Open Source Survey", which Sally has taken forward with the PMCs.
-
-    B. President [Ross]
-
-      An extremely busy month for me personally which has kept me away from
-      many of my ASF duties.
-   
-      The EA contract was renewed as previously agreed. A new renewal date has
-      been entered into the calendar. With Melissa's help we are in the
-      processes of updating our Director records with CSC. Please note that
-      Melissa is now providing an approximate breakdown of her time. As is
-      appropriate Melissa is in full control of her time allocation, this new
-      reporting is intended only to inform the board for budget monitoring as
-      requested.
-
-      ApacheCon proceeds thanks to continuing significant effort from Rich.
-      Due to my personal issues this month I have not been as helpful as I had
-      hoped but it seems Rich has, as always, taken it in his stride. See the
-      EVP report for more detail.
-   
-      I am yet to make significant progress on reporting budget vs actuals.
-      The treasurer has provided some initial data exports but I have been
-      unable to find the time to process it. Since I need to create a new
-      budget for the following year I propose to build this reporting into a
-      new spreadsheet that I develop during the preparation of this budget.
-   
-      Trademarks remains very busy and Shane has indicated that he is falling
-      behind a little. I have encouraged Shane to continue to work with
-      Melissa to identify areas in which she can help. I also note that an
-      Member has also offered to help.
-   
-      Fundraising is also progressing well though it is notable that this is
-      taking up a reasonable chunk of both Sally's and Melissa's time. Like
-      trademarks we need to acknowledge this role is not one that a volunteer
-      can be expected to fill. Unlike Trademarks though VP Fundraising appears
-      to have been able to find sufficient tasks that can be handled by
-      contractors. I believe this is mainly due to the less legally sensitive
-      domain. However, I grow increasingly concerned that more support from
-      Officers in managing key sponsor relations is necessary.
-   
-      Marketing progresses with its usual rhythm. No exceptional items to
-      reports.
-   
-      Infra also reports nothing exceptional this month. I do note the ongoing
-      improvement of GitHub integration at the specific request of committers.
-   
-      I engaged with the Cordova PMC with respect to their release process.
-      Initially this engagement was only as a member attempting to help them
-      understand the lay of the land. However at the request of a number of
-      Directors and Infra I subsequently made a formal request (cc board@ and
-      infra-private@) to ensure releases after 2.8.1 are formally voted upon.
-      Joe has been working with the PMC to define a suitable process which
-      does not introduce unnecessary work. I will conduct any necessary sanity
-      checks with the board to ensure the final solution is acceptable. For
-      now the PMC has acknowledged the need to address this issue (see Cordova
-      report) and Joe reports that he is satisfied with progress to date.
-   
-      TAC has, once again, failed to submit a report (and due to my own
-      lateness they have not had a prompt from me). However, Melissa reports
-      progress has been made towards planning for ApacheCon.
-   
-      Additionally, please see Attachments 1 through 6.
-
-
-    C. Treasurer [Chris]
-
-       The Treasurer's Office processed repayment for some items related 
-       to the Dublin Meetup and also processed payment to NASDAQ Global
-       Newswire in coordination with VP Press, Marketing and the President.
-
-       The Treasurer and the President identified how a statement of actuals could 
-       be provided to the President quarterly.
-
-       Over the past month, the office has periodically provided information 
-       to the EA on sponsors and their incoming payments.
-
-       We have processed a payment to the EA and set up her new payment 
-       amount to reflect her updated contract and raise.
-
-       The Office dealt with an inquiry from the Apache OOo PMC regarding 
-       reimbursements for FOSDEM 2014.
-
-       We are actively coordinating with Virtual, Inc. to obtain a quote 
-       for their financial services.
-
-       We are working with EA and Nick Burch to handle wire transfer for 
-       initial payments for TAC flights for ACNA 2014.

-    D. Secretary [Craig]
-
-       January was an average month after the December doldrums.  There 
-       were 60 iclas and three cclas received and filed. 
-
-       The board subscription list received some overdue maintenance. 
-       LDAP subscriptions to pmc-chairs have been synchronized with PMC 
-       chairs in committee-info.txt. All but three PMC chairs are 
-       subscribed to board.

-    E. Executive Vice President [Rich]
-
-        ApacheCon North America 2014 will be held in Denver Colorado,
-        April 7-9, with tutorials and a co-located Cloudstack event to
-        follow on the 10th and 11th.
-
-        Since the last meeting, the ApacheCon call for papers has come
-        and gone, and we have, as of Monday, February 17th, selected a
-        schedule of talks for the event, and notified the selected
-        speakers. We are still receiving answers back from those
-        speakers and adjusting the schedule for the people who have
-        declined, or want their talks moved to avoid other conflicts.
-
-        Members of the Apache community were amazingly helpful in the
-        process of selecting the content, and I think we have a really
-        solid schedule for this event.
-
-        As compared to years past, the conference will have much more
-        content, with 10 tracks on Monday and Tuesday, and 9 on
-        Wednesday, and the Cloudstack Collaboration Conference on
-        Thursday and Friday. Additionally we have a day and a half
-        of tutorials, and numerous evening events.
-
-        It is now LF's responsibility to market the event and draw in
-        the registrations. I expect to have a report on registrations
-        for the next board meeting. The lead time is very short, and
-        they have their work cut out for them. Any way that we can help
-        promote the event will be important to augment their effort.
-
-        Meanwhile, we are looking at venues in Europe for November, with
-        Budapest and Rome being considered. And we are also very
-        tentatively looking at the possibility of doing an event in
-        Brazil, although that is unlikely to be in this calendar year.

-Attachment 2: Report from the VP of Brand Management  [Shane Curcuru]
-
-This was a very busy month on trademarks@, and there are a number of 
-open questions still being worked on.  There have also been a number of 
-good discussions about clarifying our policies - both for PMCs as well 
-as for third parties - and about improving the Project Independence 
-guidelines.
-
-Incubator PMC and trademarks@ was contacted by a third party about our 
-use of the Apache Sentry name for our security-related product.  
-Discussions are continuing.
-
-My two talks on Brand Management were accepted for ApacheCon Denver, and 
-also one brand talk at the following CloudStack Collab that week. Phew!
-
-The Apache Hadoop PMC created trademarks@hadoop.a.o privately archived 
-mailing list; plans are to use it for better coordination of various 
-Hadoop-related brand policing.
-
-Met with counsel for the CLOUDSTACK matter, and met with a representative 
-from UKFast to work on a settlement to ensure our registration in the EU 
-can continue and to ensure that UKFast recognizes our marks.

------------------------------------------
-Attachment 3: Report from the VP of Fundraising  [Upayavira]
-
-At the request of Upayavira, this month’s report is being written by Melissa.
-
-Melissa has been continuing to follow-up on the renewals that have been sent
-out.  As a result of her persistence, some that we thought were “dead”, she
-has revived.
-
-We have received a Bronze payment from Cerner.  
-
-As of the writing of this, we’re awaiting an update from the Treasurer’s
-office on any new payments.
-
-Melissa has reached out to Sam to request the Tax#/EIN# be added to the quotes
-and invoices.
-
-Facebook has sent a Supplier ACH Enrollment Form, which Melissa has completed
-and sent off to them.
-
-In the process of adding “thank yous” to individual donors on the “Thanks”
-page of the website.
-
-The renewals for Yahoo! and Citrix will be going out soon, as they are up for
-renewal the first week of April.
-
-Although we’ve been making great progress, it’s clear that we still have a lot
-of work ahead of us.   I’ve (me, Melissa) actually been contemplating a better
-invoicing/accounting system to keep track of this.  I think it would be in our
-best interest if we purchase an invoicing/accounting system.  We might have to
-pay for a program, but it would be totally worth it in the long run.
-
-

-Attachment 5: Report from the VP of Infrastructure  [Sam Ruby]
-
-
-New Karma:
-==========
-
-
-Finances:
-==========
-
-
-Board Action Items:
-===================
-
-
-Short Term Priorities:
-======================
-
-* Look into mac build slaves.
-
-
-* Converge on git.apache.org migration to eris. (Step 1 is merge git ->
-  git-wip on tyr) (opinions?)
-
-* Investigate / negotiate external code-signing capability, currently in talks
-  under NDA. INFRA-3991 is tracking the status, and a Webex call has taken
-  place.
-
-* Complete nagios-to-circonus migration for monitoring.
-
-* Continue to experiment with weekly team meetings via google hangout.
-
-* Explore the possibility of revamping the infra documents to have a more 
-  intuitive feel about them, improve readability.
-
-* Confluence Upgrade. Upgrade from 5.0.3 to latest. Hopefully will be less
-  painful this time around.  (Support case closed, nothing useful came from it
-  other than check the logs.)
-
-* Port tlp creation scripts over to new json-based design on whimsy.
-
-* Ensure all contractors are participating in on-call situations, minimally by
-  requiring cell-phone notification (via SMS, twitter, etc) for all circonus
-  alarms.
-
-* Explore better integration with GitHub that allows us to retain the same
-  information on the mailing list, so that vital discussions are recorded as
-  having taken place in the right places (if it didn't happen on the ML...).
-
-Long Range Priorities:
-======================
-
-* Choose a suitable technology for continued buildout of our virtual
-  hosting infra.  Right now we are on VMWare but it no longer is gratis
-  software for the ASF.
-
-* Continue gradually replacing gear we no longer have any hardware warranty
-  support for.
-
-* Formulate an effective process and surrounding policy documentation for
-  fulfilling the DMCA safe harbor provisions as they relate to Apache services.
-
-* Institute egress filtering on all mission-critical service hosts.
-
-
-General Activity:
-=================
-
-* Migrated dist.apache.org from backups of thor to eris.  Unfortunately a
-  dozen commits were naturally lost in the process.  Thanks to TRACI.NET for
-  providing additional bandwidth for this purpose.
-
-* Jira: Jira is now runnning on Apache Tomcat 8.0.0 (rather than 7.0.x). While
-  running on 8.0.x is unsupported by Atlassian, this is providing valuable
-  feedback to the Tomcat community. To mitigate the risk of running an
-  unsupported configuration, Jira is being monitored more closely than usual for
-  any problems and there is a plan in place to rollback to 7.0.x if necessary.
-
-* At the behest of committers, we have started working on a stronger
-  implementation of GitHub services, including 'vanity plates' for all Apache
-  committers on GitHub.  A method of interacting with GitHub Pull Requests and
-  comments has been completed, that both interacts with the GitHub interface
-  and retains all messages on the local mailing lists and JIRA instances for
-  record keeping. At the time of writing, we have 367 committers on the Apache
-  team on GitHub. We have made a blog entry about this at
-  http://s.apache.org/asfgithub which seems to have reached many projects
-  already.  Furthermore, the Incubator has been involved in the development of
-  this, and are thus also aware of its existence and use cases.
-
-* The new SSL wildcard was obtained from Thawte earlier this month, and will
-  be rolled out to services very soon. Thanks to jimjag this got the business
-  end of the deal done so we could actually get the cert in before the incumbent
-  expires.
-
-* All remaining SVN repos have now been upgraded to 1.8.
-
-* Resurrected thor (mail-search) after soliciting help from SMS for on-site
-  repairs.
-
-* Amended release policy to provide rationale and spent time explaining the new
-  section to members@.  See http://www.apache.org/dev/release#why
-
-* Work with Cordova on processing their historical releases to comport with
-  policy.

-Attachment 6: Report from the Apache Travel Assistance Committee  [Gavin McDonald]
-
-We had 26 applications submitted this time. Of those, based on the judges
-recommendations, the committee chose to accept 15 of these. Considering the
-tight timescales we've been compressed into, those numbers are actually
-pretty good.
-
-All 15 successful applicants have accepted, and we now have an almost
-complete set of flight / hotel / conference / dates / etc requirements from
-everyone. We're working with the travel agent to find the cheapest sensible
-flights for everyone, probably about half have been finalised now, rest
-expected soon. As with past conferences, we're booking non-refundable and
-non-changeable tickets, and we're self-insuring for the event of someone not
-getting a visa or similar. We're ensuring everyone has their own travel
-insurance to cover medical costs especially, but also ideally cancellations
-in case they're ill or similar.
-
-We've 5 applicants who need to apply for visas, so these are our top
-priority.
-
-We have however hit a snag with getting the wire transfer to the Travel
-Agent, so she can ticket the flights we're happy with. We think we'll
-probably be fine to wait until early next week to ticket most flights, but
-for next time it'd be good if more people were able to approve transfers
-with the bank. If the delay looks set to increase, we'll just put more (or
-perhaps even all) on credit cards.
-
-On a related money note, only Gav and Melissa have access to
-/repos/private/financials/Bills/ to submit or track invoices. It would be
-good if all of the Travel Assistance Committee could be given access too,
-since we do generate a fair number each year.

-
-Relatively slow but steady month. No progress yet on Creative Commons
-(CC-BY 4.0) issue. Geir has offered to help regarding conversations
-with Oracle related to TCK access (renewals as well as new ones).
-We are operating under the understanding that we still can test against
-expired TCKs in the meantime.

-Attachment 9: Report from the Apache Security Team Project  [Mark Cox]
-
-There continues to be a steady stream of reports of various kinds
-arriving at security@ in Jan. These continue to be dealt with by
-the security team.
-
-Some effort was made this month to start to chase some old issues
-which we forwarded to projects but were there was no visible progress.
-One of these was escalated to the board after the reporter had no
-response for 6 months (the discussion was ongoing at the time of this
-report, but in general the difficulty is where a PMC does not have
-complete technical coverage of the project, in these cases we should
-make sure the PMC build a separate security team of the folks who can
-handle issues.  This is in no way an ASF-only issue, we see exactly
-the same problems with other upstreams including Linux kernel etc.)

-  Most recent addition: 2009-06-09
-
-General status:
-  The most recent release is 0.9 on 2011-02-07.
-
-  No activity on the user mail list.
-
-  The only activity on the dev mail list was me doing a few issue tracker
-  comments to show people some easy things that they could do to help the
-  project to move forward.
-
-  We received a request from a maintainer endeavouring to enable the Homebrew
-  package manager to handle Forrest, beyond their current workaround. I did
-  explain to our project what needs to happen. There has been no response.
-
-  The project was asked to review our situation regarding the recently
-  revised branding guidelines. No-one commented that they have done so.
-
-  At this quarter, eight PMC members responded to my draft report. This
-  confirms that there are sufficient people hanging around for us to
-  potentially be able to make a decision or encourage new contributors.
-
-  The draft report did re-start a small discussion on private@ list about the
-  state of the project. People were reminded about the outcome of the last
-  time that this arose, i.e. it is okay for the project to be quiet, as long
-  as it is still able to make decisions. People were asked to make effort on
-  the dev mail list, and to assist with project tasks, and reminded about the
-  need for a release.
-
-Security issues reported:
-  None.
-
-Progress of the project:
-  Enabled per-project configuration of Cocoon error handling.
-
-  Updated our JSch supporting product.

-    for Apache HBase, a NoSQL data store. It is accessed as a JDBC driver
-    and enables querying and managing HBase tables using SQL. 
-
-* Miscellaneous
-
-  * The issue of how best to integrate with GitHub is a recurring topic of
-    discussion.  Infra added a new feature -- forwarding of comments on pull
-    requests to dev lists -- which was well received.  However, as GitHub's
-    interface is an external commercial service rather than something we run
-    on our own hardware, it is difficult to ensure that communications
-    will be archived, requiring additional vigilance from PMCs.
-
-  * A proposal for Hoya, an application to deploy and manage existing
-    distributed applications in a YARN cluster, was discussed at length but
-    has not yet been voted on.

-Shepherd/Mentor notes:
-
-  Dave Fisher (wave):
-
-    New community to the incubator just getting started. Good guidance from
-    Mentors. Needs Apache trademark attribution on site. Should have links
-    to Mailing lists on the site.

-Shepherd/Mentor notes:
-
-  John Ament (johndament):
-
-    Droids is a long standing podling, with a robust code base but without
-    much need for frequent releases.  I think graduating into an existing
-    TLP (not their own TLP) would be a good resolution, it helps avoid some
-    of the over head of many binding votes to carry on while still
-    maintaining an area to work in.  The people working on droids were fast
-    to respond and give feedback on what's happening, but like is mentioned
-    the list is not very active (in the past 6 months, the main
-    conversations going on were around status of the project).
-
---------------------

-log4cxx2
-
-Logging for C++
-
-log4cxx2 has been incubating since 2013-12-09.
-
-Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
-
-  1. We probably need to decide what's an acceptable platform/compiler
-     list, sort out any remaining hiccups, and then move towards a
-     release.
-  2. We need to publish the project site with updated content to
-     reflect the new status and fix documentation bugs.
-  3. We need to make a broader use of the ASF infrastructure
-     (notably the CI, as well as improved management of the Jira
-     site - notably with triaging), and establish a roadmap for
-     the next releases.
-
-Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
-aware of?
-
-  We are stuck on INFRA-7209 and how to properly publish the project
-  site.
-
-How has the community developed since the last report?
-
-  The committers are still getting acquainted with each other and the
-  foundation. There have been some discussions about how to develop
-  within the team of committers already, like using a CI, how
-  to deal with issues regarding a changelog, which fixes should be
-  covered by our first incubation release etc.
-  Moderation of the list seems to work, there were some support
-  requests which were answered and problems introduced by commits on
-  trunk discussed.
-
-How has the project developed since the last report?
-
-  Some known bugs were fixed already and available patches applied,
-  which is work in progress for the new release. It has been suggested
-  to schedule most of the remaining available patches for an upcoming
-  release of 0.11.0 to include as much content which has been provided
-  over the years as possible.
-
-Date of last release:
-
-  2008-04-03 was the official, pre-incubation 0.10.0
-
-  Many post-0.10.0 commits exist on trunk which we intend to get out

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

-
-Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
-aware of?
-
-The below is informational for the IPMC (no need to forward the board):
-
-  We've been waiting for our Github issues to be imported into our Apache
-  JIRA but it is taking a while. We're considering doing the import
-  ourselves, as we're starting to see duplicate JIRAs and continue to have

-Attachment AF: Report from the Apache ManifoldCF Project  [Karl Wright]
-
-Project description
-==============
-
-ManifoldCF is an effort to provide an open source framework for connecting
-source content repositories like Microsoft Sharepoint and EMC Documentum, to
-target repositories or indexes, such as Apache Solr, OpenSearchServer or
-ElasticSearch. ManifoldCF also defines a security model for target
-repositories that permits them to enforce source-repository security
-policies.
-
-Releases
-========
-
-ManifoldCF graduated from the Apache Incubator on May 16, 2012.  Since then,
-there have been five major releases, including a 1.4 release on October 28,
-2013, and a point release 1.4.1 on November 16, 2014.  A new major release
-(1.5) is being voted on at this time.
-
-Committers and PMC membership
-========================
-
-The last committer and PMC member we signed up was Minoru Osuka (minoru), on
-January 10, 2013.  We voted in a new committer and PMC member in May, but he
-declined to accept the committership due to his company's policies.  Other
-contributors have been approached, but have also declined to accept
-consideration for possible committership. The most recent of these
-encounters took place in September.
-
-We are still not entirely sure why people who are obviously interested and to
-some degree committed to the project seem unwilling to become full committers.
-I suspect that corporate restrictions make this a challenge in some cases.
-Also, we seem to be interacting more with contractors than with employees
-recently, and it may well be that contractors have less interest in a
-long-standing relationship with our project.  Nevertheless, we have rumors of
-significant contributions being prepared by at least three individuals; if any
-of these contributions are made, then we will likely offer the individuals
-involved committerships.
-
-Mailing list activity
-==============
-
-Mailing list has been active, with a wide range of topics.  Most of our
-connectors now have significant use cases and constituencies.  Dev list
-comments centered around voting, extensions to the SharePoint connector,
-people looking for integration advice, etc.  ManifoldCF also participated in
-Google Summer of Code, and MCF committers mentored one student developer
-through end of September 2013.
-
-External contributions and even committer contributions have been significant
-this quarter, despite heavy workload among most of the committer community.
-
-I am unaware of any mailing-list question that has gone unanswered.
-
-Outstanding issues
-==================
-
-None.
-
-Branding
-========
-
-We have reviewed the site branding guidelines and believe we are now
-compliant with these, with the possible exception of (TM) signs in logos
-from other Apache products that don't have any such marks.  We have
-not yet scheduled time to address this issue.

-Attachment AO: Report from the Apache Qpid Project  [Gordon Sim]
-
-Apache Qpid™ is a project focused on creating software based on the
-Advanced Message Queuing Protocol (AMQP), currently providing a
-protocol engine library, message brokers written in C++ and Java, and
-client libraries for C++, Java (including JMS), .Net, Python, Perl and
-Ruby.
-
-* Releases:
-
-Qpid Proton 0.6 was released on 16th January.
-
-Qpid Dispatch Router 0.1 was released on 17th January.
-
-The Qpid 0.26 release vote has concluded (we have changed the
-publishing process we use and publication is currently waiting on
-infra-7201, but should be complete soon). The previous Qpid release
-(0.24) was in 7th Sep, 2013.
-
-* Community:
-
-The main developer and user lists continue to be active. JIRAs are
-being raised and addressed.
-
-No new committers were added since last report (November 2013). The
-last committer added was Pavel Moravec on 30th Aug, 2013. The last PMC
-members to be added were Andrew Stitcher, Chuck Rolke, Justin Ross and
-Keith Wall, who were originally voted in during September 2011. It was
-brought to our attention however that there was no record of
-notification to - or acknowledgement from, as at that time required -
-the board at that time. This was rectified by a vote in Dec 2013 and
-an acknowledgement was received from Jim Jagielski.
-
-* Development Highlights:
-
-AMQP 1.0 continues to be an area of activity as issues are reported
-(often in conjunction with other AMQP 1.0 implementations) and fixed.
-
-Development is underway on a new AMQP 1.0 based JMS client, in line
-with the JMS Mapping being developed at OASIS.
-
-The existing JMS over 1.0 client and the java broker now support
-WebSockets, tracking the specification for that being developed at
-OASIS.
-
-Though not part of Qpid per se, an AMQP based NMS implementation
-(using qpid::messaging under the covers) has been developed in
-conjunction with the ActiveMQ project, increasing options for
-interoperability between the two projects.
-
-Dispatch Router added support for both competing and non-competing
-patterns, based on patterns specified in the configuration file. (Will
-be part of 0.2 release). The Dispatch Router is tracking the
-specification development for AMQP management.
-
-Proton Messenger added support for dynamic nodes. (Included in 0.6
-release). Some ideas have also been discussed to simplify using the
-Proton engine API, namely adding an event-oriented interface and some
-generic container support.

-* Issues:
-
-There are no items requiring board attention at this time.

+
+ 4. Executive Officer Reports
+
+    A. Chairman [Brett]
+
+       Happy New Year!
+
+       Following on from the discussion about budget timing, an early Annual
+       Members Meeting has been suggested. This would require starting the
+       process in the next week or two. We will also need to work through the
+       questions about quorum raised at the 2014 meeting.
+
+       Several other discussions have started among the board this month, but
+       have been pushed out to committees such as Community Development and
+       the Incubator.
+
+       We have a higher than normal number of reports missing this month,
+       likely due to the missing reminder emails and the holiday period.
+
+    B. President [Ross]
+
+       It's budget planning season. All officers should send their request to me
+       ASAP. The current timeline is:
+
+         - Jan: Deliver a draft budget based on 2014 budget actuals (Virtual)
+         - Feb: Deliver a draft budget adjusted based on Officer input
+             (President) 
+         - March: Deliver a draft budget for comment by the outgoing board
+             (President)
+         - April: Deliver final budget for approval by the incoming
+             board (President) 
+
+       In the March and April deliverables I plan to also provide a 5 year budget
+       proposal. This will be used for planning purposes only and will not be voted
+       on by the board (though comments will be incorporated wherever appropriate).
+
+       EA contract has been renewed. This again brought the issue of contractor vs
+       employee to the fore. From a management perspective we are in good shape
+       (though I'm working with Virtual to change the contract to reflect this). 
+       However, since Melissa is working 40 hours per week and has no other job it is
+       hard to argue that, under IRS rules, she would be considered a contractor.
+
+       My previous recommendation was to use Virtual services to resolve this issue. 
+       This was not supported by the board, however the problem still exists today. 
+       Furthermore, VP Infrastructure has a couple of similar contracts due for
+       renewal. Greg is looking at a proposal to address this and will hopefully be
+       able to provide an update today. In the interim I again recommend that we use
+       virtual to resolve this problem, even is this is a short term solution while a
+       long term one is identified and implemented.
+
+       Brand manage report is missing at the time of writing. I am not aware of any
+       significant issues. The move to allowing PMCs to manage requests clearly
+       within the policies identified by VP Brand Management seems to be taking
+       effect, with less trivial requests reaching the brand mailing list and thus a
+       seemingly more rapid response to more complex issues.
+
+       The fundraising report is missing at the time of writing. The new VPs are
+       getting up to speed and communications with sponsors are being managed well. 
+       With Hadrian's engagement our EA is pushing forward to formalize a proposal
+       for an OfBiz based CRM solution for the fundraising team. At the same time a
+       member of the OfBiz community has expressed interest on the ComDev list in
+       helping the foundation. I've made everyone aware of the interest and
+       encouraged discussion on the fundraising lists. in the meantime we are
+       continuing to spec and cost a service.
+
+       Sally (VP Marketing) has provided some mock-ups for an alternative to the
+       "fork me on GitHub" banners in response to discussions on the board@ list. 
+       These are intended to progress the discussion and will be shared with the
+       Wicket PMC for feedback first. Sally is also finalizing the first draft of the
+       quarterly report. This is due for publication before the next board meeting. 
+       Other Marketing items are "business as usual".
+
+       Infrastructure report is missing at the time of writing. There are two items
+       I'm aware of, the first is the contract status for renewals (discussed above),
+       the second is the budgeting process. David (VP Infrastructure) and I are
+       working on classifying services and budgeting according to their importance
+       and the expected growth of the foundation.
+
+       Travel Assistance Committee report is missing at the time of writing. EA
+       reports that TAC applications are underway for ApacheCon NA (close Feb 6th)
+
+
+       Directed Sponsorship
+       -----------------------------
+
+       As discussed on the board@ list I would like to proceed with a limited
+       experiment allowing directed sponsorship, that is sponsorship that is only
+       used to support a specific project.  My motivation is that a PMC has claimed
+       they were unaware of the willingness of the board to entertain the concept of
+       directed sponsorships. This has, arguably, resulted in a lost opportunity to
+       empower a PMC through directed sponsorships. My goal here is to remove all
+       doubt about the willingness of the ASF Board to conduct a controlled
+       experiment in order to inform a future policy for all PMCs. I do not intend
+       for this experiment to set a precedent, only to provide valuable data. Note,
+       there is currently no PMC in a position to take advantage of this. If this
+       remains the case that will be valuable data in itself.
+
+       I have consulted with Virtual and have been informed that there are no
+       concerns relating to our 501c(3) status (although we would still need to
+       ensure a projects use of directed sponsorship is appropriate). Virtual have
+       also confirmed that they can support this proposed experiment with no
+       additional cost.
+
+       One important item to note is that this proposal does not enable a PMC to have
+       a "donate" button for small contributions. The overhead in dealing with small
+       donations is too high.
+
+       Proposal:
+
+       - The ASF will continue to provide essential services for core funding using
+       the existing sponsorship model, this proposal does not change that arrangement
+
+       - During this experiment a maximum of two PMCs will be given permission to
+       solicit directed sponsorships with a minimum donation level of $50,000.
+
+       - Projects are free to use directed funds to deliver additional services
+       not provided from core ASF funds if, and only if, VPs Fundraising have
+       approved this use 
+
+       - Any directed sponsorships will have a total of 15% contributed to ASF
+       central funds to pay for essential maintenance of core services
+
+       - Where the sponsor is already a foundation sponsor the 15% core
+       contribution will be reduced by the total of the existing sponsorship amount
+
+       - Existing sponsorship of the foundation cannot be reclassified as a
+       directed sponsorship
+
+       - Directed sponsorships will (optionally) receive credit on the “thanks” page
+       at the level of their 15% core donation with a note that they are also a
+       project sponsor
+
+       - Receiving projects may choose to manage their own thanks page under
+       guidelines drawn up by VP Fundraising and VP Brand Management
+
+       - Sponsorships will be assumed to be for 12 months, any unspent funds at the
+       end of 12 months will become ASF foundation funds if the ASF chooses. Sponsors
+       will agree to this in writing.
+
+       - Sponsorships are not refundable if the project leaves the ASF, retires
+       to the Attic or fails to use the funds. All unspent funds will be transferred
+       to core ASF funds.
+
+       - Sponsors can dictate which PMC the money is directed towards but not what
+       the money is to be used for, it is the PMC that decide what it is used for.
+
+       - Any requested use by the PMC must be in conformance with the policies and
+       practices of the ASF, where policy is not clearly defined VPs Fundraising
+       approval will be required (for example, directed sponsorships cannot be used
+       to develop code).
+
+       - The President, VPs Fundraising and PMC Chair will work directly with
+       potential sponsors to ensure they are fully aware of what is and is not
+       possible with their donated funds (for example, code development is explicitly
+       prohibited )
+
+       - Any service that adds to the workload of the ASF contractors or VPs will
+       require an appropriate contribution to ASF funds to cover these costs
+
+       - No use of the funds that would put the ASF 501c(3) status at risk will be
+       permitted
+
+       Additionally, please see Attachments 1 through 6.
+
+
+    C. Treasurer [Chris]
+    
+        The Treasurer’s Office worked with Virtual to get the Apache 990
+        and Client Organizer submitted and Taxes filed.
+        
+        New Credit Cards from Citizen’s Bank have been received by the
+        Treasurer, VP Infrastructure, the President, the EVP, the EA and
+        the ASF Secretary.
+        
+        There are a few outstanding actions, including closing down the WF
+        accounts. Chris and Tom from Virtual will meet in the coming month
+        and report back.
+        
+        VP, Press and Marketing has asked for Quarterly Financial Reports
+        - Virtual is picking up this action and coordinating with Sally on
+        this front.

+    D. Secretary [Craig]
+
+       Secretary is running well. An issue with submissions of modified license
+       agreements was resolved to everyone’s satisfaction, with no changes to license
+       agreements necessary.
+
+       In December, 57 iclas, eight cclas, and one nda were received and filed.
+
+    E. Executive Vice President [Rich]
+
+        This month I've been working on finding keynotes for
+        ApacheCon, and trying to get various project communities to
+        promote the CFP and seek speakers. Thus far, we have less than
+        50 talks proposed, however, we've traditionally seen half to
+        two thirds of proposals come in during the last week.
+
+        The CFP closes on Feb 1, so the coming month will be spent in
+        the selection process and other logistics around planning the
+        event.
+
+        I've also been working with the people at OpenSource.com (as
+        has Sally) to identify people within the Apache community to
+        write for the 'Apache Quill' series that they'll be running
+        for as long as we cam provide content.
+
+    F. Vice Chairman [Greg]
+
+       Options for handling our service provider contracts have been gathered from
+       discussions and placed into version control. Refinement is now occurring, and
+       expansion on the best options.
+
+       At the moment, the two best options are to use Virtual's PEO (Professional
+       Employment Organization) or to contract with a (corporate) third-party for our
+       services.

+
+The Apache CloudStack PMC is working with the Linux Foundation (LF) directly
+with the aim of setting up a CloudStack Marketing Alliance, outside of the
+ASF, to help promote the use and development of CloudStack.  The PMC and LF
+representatives are working within our published brand policy, and are working
+with relevant ASF officers when needed. This looks to be a very productive
+start to this PMC's long-running broader work around showcasing CloudStack to
+the public, and should provide good experiences and models for other PMCs
+wishing to broaden their outreach.
+
+Several other PMCs have begun directly issuing permissions for small/mid scale
+events using their marks, so the process of PMC permissions is starting to be
+used, although more education and clearer documentation is still very much
+needed.
+
+Submitted a USPTO registration for FLINK at the request of the newly graduated
+PMC.
+
+The ASF received the formal trademark registration paperwork for our HADOOP
+registration in Japan.
+
+With assistance of counsel and many other ASF'ers, updated and signed an event
+MOU with Cloudera for their ongoing Hadoop World conference.  
+
+trademarks@ lost Jukka as a moderator.  While Henri volunteered to fill in,
+the lack of any other volunteers is concerning for the long term with the
+relatively small number of Members who regularly step up to help productively
+work on trademarks@ matters.

+Attachment 3: Report from the VP of Fundraising  [Jim Jagielski]
+
+Much of what happened in the Fundraising realm is captured on Melissa's report.
+
+* We had a few discussions about the CRM issue with Melissa and Rob. I am
+  waiting on the HotWax Media response, but it's very likely that I will
+  reach out to the Ofbiz community for a pilot project.
+* We started a conversation about improving the Thanks page. Daniel came up
+  with a nice proposal. Looks like we'll soon declare lazy consensus and go
+  with his rendering.
+* We are continuing the renewal process normally.
+* We identified new potential sponsors (a CRM, again, would help)
+* We are looking into ways to conduct fundraising campaigns in ways
+  compatible with ASF's values.
+* Hadrian asked to be associated with the ASF on GuideStar (don't know yet if
+  their GS Exchange is an appropriate avenue).

+Attachment 4: Report from the VP of Marketing and Publicity  [Sally Khudairi]
+
+I. Budget: Sally Khudairi submitted two NASDAQ GlobeNewswire invoices to the
+ASF/Virtual accounting team for payment for press releases that fell out of
+the pre-paid contract timeframe (two week period between contract termination
+and renewal). She has also been working with Melissa Warnkin on production of
+several promotional projects (such as stickers for FOSDEM and SCALE
+conferences), for which Melissa has forwarded the credit card receipts for
+ASF/Virtual's deduction from the M&P budget.
+
+II. Fundraising/Branding/Marketing liaison: no new formal projects or
+developments at this time. Sally continues to liaise with Trademarks & Brand
+Management with usage requests. She is also working on the first of the ASF's
+quarter annual reports, which is scheduled to be published at the end of
+January.
+
+III. Press Releases: the following formal announcements were issued via the
+newswire service, ASF Foundation Blog, and announce@apache.org during this
+timeframe: 
+
+ - 19 January 2015 --The Apache Software Foundation Announces Apache™ Falcon™
+   as a Top-Level Project
+ - 12 January 2015 --The Apache Software Foundation Announces Apache™ Flink™
+   as a Top-Level Project
+
+ 
+IV. Informal Announcements: 10 items were published on the ASF "Foundation"
+Blog and tweeted on @TheASF, including the ASF's new Code of Conduct
+http://s.apache.org/dGR and the addition of Apache sub-projects being added to
+the Foundation's official activity count http://s.apache.org/fs5 . An
+additional 13 items were tweeted on @TheASF. Six Apache News Round-ups were
+issued, with a total of 18 weekly summaries published thus far. 
+
+V. Future Announcements: two announcements are in development, one for a new
+TLP and the other for Apache PDFBox. Sally is working on new promotional
+guidelines for podlings both entering as well as those ready to graduate from
+the Incubator, and will be coordinating with Roman Shaposhnik on publishing
+them when ready. Those PMCs wishing to announce major project news are welcome
+to contact Sally at <press@apache.org> for more information. Kindly provide at
+least 2-weeks' notice for proper planning and execution.
+
+
+VI. Media Relations: we responded to 7 media requests. The ASF received 696
+press clips over this time period, vs. last month's clip count of 2,271.
+
+VII. Analyst Relations: we responded to 4 analyst queries. Apache was
+mentioned in 26 write-ups by Gartner, 3 reports by Forrester, 3 write-up by
+GigaOM, 3 reports by 451 Research/Yankee Group, and 6 reports by IDC. Sally is
+working with Forrester on a new report on Apache Spark. 
+
+VIII. ApacheCon liaison: Sally continues to work with Ross Gardler on creating
+an ASF-wide marketing campaign that can be mapped against the tracks at
+ApacheCon. They are also working with Rich Bowen with targeting possible
+keynote themes and speakers.
+
+IX. (Non-ASF) Industry Events and Outreach liaison: no formal activities at
+this time. 
+
+X. Newswire accounts: we have 29 pre-paid press releases with NASDAQ
+GlobeNewswire through the end of 2016, and continue to receive gratis news
+release distribution in the UK by Pressat.

+
+New Karma:
+==========
+
+
+Finances:
+==========
+1429.14 - Amazon Web Services
+3969.00 - Carbonite/Zmanda
+
+As a side note, the new cards have arrived, which provide a much
+better level of insight into spending; many thanks to the office 
+of Treasurer and EA for chasing this.  
+ 
+Operations Action Items:
+========================
+
+N/A
+
+Short Term Priorities:
+======================
+
+Codesigning
+-----------
+Another project has requested code signing functionality. (UIMA
+INFRA-9002). 
+Four signing events occurred in the month. Two events each for Tomcat
+8.0.16 and 8.0.17. 
+
+Machine deprecation
+-------------------
+Work continues (and was slightly hindered by the holidays) on
+deprecating the host the runs the writable git service and bugzilla.
+
+Backups
+-------
+Over the past several months we've found a number of services where
+backups were either failing or not happening at all. We've spent a
+good deal of time focusing on auditing backups and looking for a new
+solution that gives us better visibility into the success or failure
+of backup jobs. To that end we've selected Zmanda as our platform
+of choice and have begun deploying it. 
+
+LDAP
+----
+
+LDAP has emerged as a priority during this month. The loss of the
+machine that served as the svn master last month reduced the number of
+LDAP servers in our Oregon Colo to 1, and that instance is
+consistently under heavy load, and logins to most services are taking
+significantly longer as a result. We've had a lot of work in process, 
+and only recently began tackling the issue. 
+
+Long Range Priorities:
+======================
+
+Monitoring
+----------
+
+Work is continuing on monitoring, with a good leap forward this month.
+We are taking advantage of (and contrbuting to) a project by the name
+of dsnmp that queries the Dell OpenManage SNMP/WBEM frameworks as well
+as the overall operating system health for machine. This provides
+status checking to alert us to issues that have frequently resulted in
+outages or service degradation. This month we were alerted to multiple
+issues that we were able to address before they resulted in outages.
+This is not a panacea, nor are we done with monitoring efforts, but we
+are in a much better position now. 
+
+Automation
+----------
+Automation progress continued, though slowed somewhat by the holidays.
+The writable git service is now handled by configuration management. 
+ 
+Currently the following services are in progress or in final stages of
+testing: 
+blogs.a.o
+Bugzilla
+
+Resilience
+----------
+
+We haven't made much progress on this front in the past month, aside
+from th ongoing automation efforts. 
+
+Technical Debt
+--------------
+
+As part of our automation efforts, we've been able to generate
+recreatable Debian packages for our customized version of Bugzilla.
+The long term plan is for us to have a private build job that builds
+new packages anytime the source code in our tree for Bugzilla is
+modified. 
+
+General Activity:
+=================
+
+We continue to explore the package repository service and have folks
+from Cassandra currently working on moving their existing deb
+repository from www.a.o/dist to this service as a pilot. Traffic about
+the pilot has generated interest from other projects. 
+
+Addressing a long standing todo that came out of the Heartbleed
+vulnerability, we now have an enterprise account with Symantec
+that will allow us to provision certs on demand with no interaction
+required for apache.org and openoffice.org. 
+
+We've migrated a traffic intensive service from one provider to
+another to minimize our cloud hosting expenses. (Currently 3/4 of our
+cloud infrastructure expense is from egress traffic). The new provider
+has a different fee structure that should result in noticeably lower 
+service charges. 
+
+Maven has requested, and we've agreed to host, an ASF copy of the
+Maven Central repository from Sonatype. Work is starting around that,
+but is still early. This is expected to cost in the range of $600 per
+annum.   
+
+We began discussing deprecating translate.apache.org as the service is
+provided for only 4 projects, and has only one volunteer doing the work
+of administering the service. Additionally, a number of l10n services 
+advertise free l10n hosting for OSS projects. Many of our projects are 
+already making use of those free offerings.  
+
+Uptime Statistics:
+==================
+We have revamped our uptime charts a bit, added some services and removed some
+deprecated ones. Our current overall target is 98.59% for these samples. This
+month, the overall uptime was 99.61% with critical services achieving 99.81%.
+All of the downtime here was due to moving the writeable git repos to a new
+machine.

+Attachment 8: Report from the Apache Legal Affairs Committee  [Jim Jagielski]
+
+There was some discussion regarding cleaning-up our external documentation,
+regarding 3rd party license capability and ensuring that people are directed

+
+JIRA-based issues are being handled as required.

+Attachment 9: Report from the Apache Security Team Project  [Mark Cox]
+
+We see a number of confused messages come to security@ every week
+where people say they have been hacked, or they never installed our
+software.  These were different to what happened in previous years
+when people saw "powered by Apache" on a web page that was in outage
+and thought we'd hacked them.  
+
+In December we emailed a number of these people (we usually ignore
+them) to try to figure out what they were seeing.  Only one responsed
+to me, and we figured out that what they saw was a license page for
+"Guava" on their Android mobile.  The Guava license mentions it's
+under the Apache License.  The user didn't know what Guava was, didn't
+remember installing it (they didn't), and assumed that whatever other
+things were happening on their handset was the result of this
+software.
+
+Aside from these; there continues to be a steady stream of reports of
+various kinds arriving at security@. These continue to be dealt with
+by the security team.
+
+December 2014

+Attachment A: Report from the Apache Abdera Project  [Ant Elder]
+
+Apache Abdera provides Java implementations of the IETF Atom
+Syndication Format and Publishing Protocol specifications.
+
+Abdera is very very quiet with no activity for months, and I've been
+missing doing the board reports for it. A few months ago i asked if
+someone else would volunteer to be chair but had no offers, I've asked
+again now and if no one steps up again by the next report i'll propose
+the project is moved to the Attic.
+
+No board issues.

+Attachment B: Report from the Apache Accumulo Project  [Billie Rinaldi]
+
+The Apache Accumulo sorted, distributed key/value store is a robust,
+scalable, high performance data storage system that features cell-based
+access control and customizable server-side processing.  It is based on
+Google's BigTable design and is built on top of Apache Hadoop,
+Zookeeper, and Thrift.
+
+Releases
+Version 1.6.1 was released on 9/24/2014.
+No releases have been made since the last report.
+
+Activity
+For the first time, the numbers of subscribers to both the dev and user
+lists have decreased slightly.  The dev and commits lists are
+maintaining steady activity, while the user list activity has decreased.
+The average number of messages per month for August - December 2014 is 
+roughly half that of the preceding six months.  Most months, we are
+still seeing upwards of 70 messages per month to the user list.
+
+We are planning to release 1.6.2 very soon and 1.7.0 moderately soon.
+
+Community
+Sean Busbey was added as a committer and PMC member on 1/09/2014.
+No new committers have been added since the last report, but we are
+actively discussing how to grow our community.
+
+The second annual Accumulo conference has been scheduled for April [1].
+
+In late November into December we experienced what might have been our
+first vehement disagreement over a code change.  The issue was
+ultimately resolved amicably.  One notable outcome of the process was a
+decision by our community to adopt semantic versioning 2.0 for our
+releases.

+and BookKeeper with strong durability guarantees.
+
+= Project Status =
+Development activity has been low over the last month due to the holiday
+season. We have been having discussions on how to improve the project
+visibility and attract new contributors. One angle we will take is to improve
+our documentation to flatten the learning curve for new comers to the
+project. We also intend to do more public talks and blog posts, publicizing
+the production usecases that already exist.
+
+We plan to submit one talk to ApacheCon NA. We have also been working with
+press@a.o to create a press release announcing the BookKeeper TLP. All that
+is required now for this, is approval from the relevant press offices in the
+companies mentioned, and it's ready to go.
+
+= Releases =
+Our last release was 4.3.0, released on 2014-10-14. 
+
+Release 4.2.4 is currently being voted on, so we expect it to be released in

+Attachment Q: Report from the Apache DB Project  [Myrna van Lunteren]
+
+The Apache DB TLP consists of the following subprojects:
+ o DdlUtils : a small, easy-to-use component for working with
+                      Database Definition (DDL) files.
+ o Derby     : an open source relational database implemented entirely in Java.
+ o JDO        : focused on building the API and the TCK for compatibility
+                      testing of Java Data Object implementations providing data
+                      persistence.
+ o Torque   : an object-relational mapper for Java.
+
+== Status ==
+There are no issues requiring board attention at this time.
+
+Activities over the last quarter
+a) The Derby community is adding features and fixes and working towards a
+  10.12 release
+b) Rick Hillegas of the Derby community created a 'Powered by Apache' Logo for
+  Derby. The other sub-projects have not created such logos.
+c) Activity review; the overall DB project is healthy and alive. Various
+  projects do seem to show a slowing down compared to a few years ago:
+  - an attempt a few years ago to move DdlUtils to the attic was called off by
+    its user community, but not much further activity has ensued. 
+  - Derby user-list activity is still lively, but activity on the developer
+    list has recently appeared slower (e.g. 175 posts in Nov, vs. 524 posts in
+    Nov last year).
+  - Overall JDO postings have gone down, but development activity is ongoing. 
+  - Torque list postings are down from a few years ago, but still show regular
+    activity.

+
+Current Activity: Drill continues to see positive energy and discussion on the

+users answering new user queries on the mailing list.  This is a positive sign
+towards further diversification and health of the community. The website also
+has moved to be being based on Jekyll and markdown, which has reduced the
+burden for update and thus increased the number of updates and freshness of
+the content.

+for becoming a top-level project has been set up, the renaming of the mailing
+lists is partially done (as of the time of writing this report).
+
+The Apache press team announced the graduation on January 12th. There is a
+decent media echo.
+
+
+COMMUNITY
+---------
+* Last committer was voted in November 20th, 2014 (Timo Walther)
+
+* When graduating to a TLP (December 17, 2014), all committers and

+ - January 28 – Bay Area Tez User Group
+ - January 28th – Berlin Flink User Group
+
+
+COMMUNITY OBJECTIVES
+--------------------
+* Defining and agreeing upon a new 6-12 months roadmap (currently discussed
+  on the mailing lists)
+
+* Growing the user community further
+
+* As a special case of the community growth, Flink would like to interact

+
+The Apache Incubator is the entry path into the ASF for projects and
+codebases wishing to become part of the Foundation's efforts.
+
+There are currently 36 podlings undergoing incubation.  One podling 
+joined us this month (Corinthia). One member joined and two members
+left the IPMC.
+
+IPMC has recognized the need for tightening up mentorship requirements

+--------------------
+Brooklyn
+
+Brooklyn is a framework for modelling, monitoring, and managing applications
+through autonomic blueprints.
+
+Brooklyn has been incubating since 2014-05-01.
+
+Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
+
+  1. Grow the community
+  2. More diversity of the committers/PPMC (currently biased towards
+     employees of a single organization)
+  3. Following up our first release with further, regular, releases
+
+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?
+
+  Our community continues to grow slowly but surely, and has received
+  interest and contributions from new community members.
+
+  We had the opportunity to talk about our project at ApacheCon Europe
+  recently, which has introduced Brooklyn to a wider audience within
+  Apache.
+
+How has the project developed since the last report?
+
+  Code continues to be proposed and merged at a high rate. We are
+  satisfied with our technical velocity.
+
+  We recently completed our first release as an Apache project, and
+  look forward to following this up with regular releases from now on.
+
+Date of last release:
+
+  2014-12-23 (apache-brooklyn-0.7.0-M2-incubating)

+Shepherd/Mentor notes:
+
+  Chip Childers (chipchilders):
+  
+    The Brooklyn community is doing very well in learning the rules /
+    policies / nuances of working at the ASF. It still needs a bit more time
+    to build up a diverse community IMO, but things are looking good.
+
+  David Nalley (ke4qqq):
+  
+    The Brooklyn folks kicked out their first release during this reporting
+    cycle, which is an important milestone. Work still remains in terms of
+    building a diverse community.
+
+--------------------
+Calcite
+
+Calcite is a highly customizable engine for parsing and planning queries on
+data in a wide variety of formats. It allows database-like access, and in
+particular a SQL interface and advanced query optimization, for data not
+residing in a traditional database. (Renamed from Optiq on 2014-09-30.)
+
+Calcite has been incubating since 2014-05-19.
+
+Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
+
+  1. Continue to build community
+  2. Add more committers and PPMC members
+  3. Demonstrate community robustness by rotating project tasks among
+     multiple project members
+
+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?
+
+  In December, there were 84 messages on dev@, 45 commits, 50 issues
+  created, 27 issues resolved by 7 contributors.
+
+  Julian Hyde gave a talk "SQL on everything, in memory" about Calcite
+  at the Strata + Hadoop World conference in October, and held an
+  "office hour" with interested community members. He also spoke at
+  a Hive meet-up in New York and a Kylin meet-up in San Jose about
+  how those projects integrate with Calcite.
+
+  Collaborations are under way with other Apache projects: with Drill
+  to make implementation convention more neutral; with Hive for join
+  algorithm selection, and leveraging sorted data; and with Phoenix
+  to create a Calcite adapter for Phoenix.
+
+How has the project developed since the last report?
+
+  We have completed the rename from Optiq to Calcite. We have also
+  re-organized the code into the org.apache.calcite namespace. We are
+  planning to make a 1.0 release in January with the re-organized
+  code.
+
+Date of last release:
+
+  2014-11-05 (0.9.2)
+
+When were the last committers or PMC members elected?
+
+  PPMC member elected in December (but has not yet accepted).

+Shepherd/Mentor notes:
+
+  Alan Cabrera (adc):
+
+    This podling is off to a great start.  Mentors are extremely active
+    participants with most of the non-Jira chatter being between Dmitriy
+    Setrakyan and the mentors; look to the Jira issue to see the rest of the
+    community "getting it done".  The "issues to be addressed" section seems
+    reasonable.
+
+  Branko Čibej (brane):
+
+    I agree with Alan's assessment, but I'd really like to see more
+    activity on the dev@ list; especially more of the initial committers
+    getting involved in discussions there. Whilst Jira notifications are
+    nice, I have a nagging feeling that most of the discussions within
+    the community are happening off-line, which leaves a rather large
+    hole in the community's collective memory (i.e., mail archives).
+    This will have to be addressed before graduation.

+
+Kalumet
+
+Kalumet a complete environment manager and deployer including J2EE
+environments (application servers, applications, etc), softwares, and
+resources.
+
+Kalumet has been incubating since 2011-09-20.
+
+Community Developement:
+
+  Apache Kalumet 0.6-incubating version has been released.  However, due to
+  some misunderstanding, the release vote has not been completed by 3 IPMC.
+  Especially, some legal files issues have been raised.
+  
+  We are preparing a 0.6.1-incubating release to fix the legal files and
+  submit to IPMC vote.
+
+  We are in the way of promoting the documentation on the website.
+
+Project Development:
+
+  We are preparing the 0.6.1-incubating (plan for December, 27) to fix the
+  legal files issues raised on 0.6-incubating release and have a complete
+  IPMC vote.
+
+  We are preparing the 0.7-incubating release with the development changes.
+
+  A new contributor has been identified and started to work on some issues
+  and refactoring of the webconsole (mockup provided using Vaadin).
+
+  Local branches have been created containing:
+  
+  - new model and REST API
+  - new webconsole (remove of Echo framework)
+
+  These local branches will be merged on the 0.7-incubating branch (master).
+
+  Before Graduation:
+
+  - The documentation has been updated and aligned with the 0.6-incubating
+    release. The documentation will be promoted on the website and "linked"
+    in announcement e-mails as soon as the 0.6.1-incubating release has been
+    voted.
+  - The 0.7-incubating release will fix the graduation issue, especially in
+    term of license (removal of Echo2 framework for the UI).
+
+  Post Graduation:
+
+  - Kalumet scripts. It's the extension of the "software" concept globally
+    to all Kalumet resources. It will allow users to create custom
+    deployment/update plan, with a set of fine-grained steps.

+
+Kylin is a distributed and scalable OLAP engine built on Hadoop to support
+extremely large datasets.
+
+Kylin has been incubating since 2014-11-25.
+
+Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:

+
+  * Nothing
+
+How has the community developed since the last report?
+
+  The community is growing. Several new members have started actively
+  contributing to the project. New contributors made a significant
+  contribution in develop new feature, fix bugs, refine web experience.  The
+  Kylin meetups at Bay Area and Beijing was well attended.  Apache Kylin has
+  been presented at Big Data Technology Conference 2014, Beijing which is
+  one of biggest Big Data conference in China.  Interest of people during
+  that event was great and engaged a lots of organizations and individuals,
+  many of them started to evaluate and joined Kylin community.
+
+How has the project developed since the last report?
+
+  1. The project setup is going quite well. Initial committers are
+     onboarding, JIRA, mailing list were successfully done, Web content has
+     been migrated to Apache Git but need tuning. Main source code migration
+     will be done in January 2015.
+  2. Bug fixing, enhancement are happing on current branch which
+     will be the target v1.0 release.
+  3. Work toward next gen version (supports inverted-index) is
+     progressing substantially.

+NiFi
+
+NiFi is a dataflow system based on the concepts of flow-based programming.

+
+Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
+
+  1. Produce an initial release.
+  2. Grow our community beyond the initial set of committers.
+  3. Establish rhythm for releases, review processes, and document how to
+     most effectively bring on new committers.
+
+Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
+aware of?
+
+  Nothing we wish to raise at this time.
+
+How has the community developed since the last report?
+
+  The dev mailing list has picked up 20 new e-mails since the last report
+  and is now at 62 (commits has grown to 25).
+
+  At the suggestion of the community we've adopted a review-then-commit
+  strategy which is designed to among other things help with community
+  development.
+
+  We've received several patches from members outside the initial committer
+  list including changes which dramatically improved our build process and
+  provide new extensions.
+
+How has the project developed since the last report?
+
+  All of our current infrastructure needs are setup and things are working
+  really well.  Our focus now is on working towards our first release which
+  is 0.0.1 and presently comprised of 85 JIRA issues the vast majority of
+  which are resolved.  We've conducted a thorough review of all source files
+  to ensure proper license headers/notices/disclaimers are present.  We've
+  completed a thorough review and modification of the overall LICENSE and
+  NOTICE files in preparation for release.  We've conducted the initial

+
+Project is still setting up and in the early phase. Mailing list and commits
+are fairly active.
+
+--------------------
+NPanday
+
+NPanday allows projects using the .NET framework to be built with Apache
+Maven.
+
+NPanday has been incubating since 2010-08-13.
+
+Shepherd/Mentor notes:
+
+  P. Taylor Goetz (ptgoetz):
+
+    NPanday has missed the last two reports (last report August 2014). One
+    of two mentors are engaged and encouraging the podling to make a final
+    release before retiring (last release was on 2011-05-17). However, there
+    is little PPMC/Committer involvement with only 2 PPMC members showing
+    involvement on the dev@ list in the past year. Also confirmed that a
+    report reminder email was received by the dev@ list for each of the last
+    missed reporting periods as well at the current period.
+
+    It's clear that mentors past and present have attempted to help the
+    NPanday project grow to a viable size -- at least enough to approve a
+    release, new Committer/PPMC Member, or even decide to retire -- without
+    success.
+
+    The main warning signs appear to be:
+
+    * Inability to reach community consensus (barely 2 acive Committer/PPMC
+      Members, making 3 +1s for any vote very difficult)
+    * Inability to perform releases
+    * Inability to grow the community to a viable size
+
+    The issues listed above do not indicate a lack of mentor involvement,
+    but rather a community in decline.
+
+--------------------
+ODF Toolkit
+
+Java modules that allow programmatic creation, scanning and manipulation of
+OpenDocument Format (ISO/IEC 26300 == ODF) documents
+
+ODF Toolkit has been incubating since 2011-08-01.
+
+Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
+
+  1. Grow the community in terms of committers
+  2. Have regular releases
+  3. Decide if we would like to be a top level project or join an existing
+     project, or move to the attic.
+
+Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
+aware of?
+
+  No new.
+
+How has the community developed since the last report?
+
+  We have made a release but there has been little activity since then.
+  
+  We still need to attract more members and publicizing the project in the
+  ODF.
+
+  Our validator was used on the ODF Plugfest, ahead a patch was provided by
+  a new contributor.
+
+How has the project developed since the last report?
+
+  Update of ODF validator before the ODF Plugfest (London).
+
+  There have been some user issues reported and responded to.

+--------------------
+Parquet
+
+Parquet is a columnar storage format for Hadoop.
+
+Parquet has been incubating since 2014-05-20 .

+
+    Ranger suffered a bit from a renaming issue that came up.  Activity on

+Attachment AC: Report from the Apache Isis Project  [Dan Haywood]
+
+Apache Isis is a framework to enable the creation of software using
+domain-driven design principles, being an implementation of the naked
+objects architectural pattern
+
+
+== Activity ==
+
+Mailing list activity has been steady; user mailing list subscriptions 
+are unchanged (some turnover) but the number of mailing list messages is 
+increasing with some good contributions from the user community.
+
+We have also started to get more code contributions from the community, one of 
+which has been quite substantial.
+
+In the last report we described how we are have created a new "Isis Addons"
+website [1] and have moved some components out of the framework's codebase.  To
+clarify the relationship, these are external to the framework for several
+reasons:
+* they tend to be code that either runs on top of Isis (reusable domain logic
+  entities) or implementations of optional hooks that Isis exposes (services
+  such as auditing, security).
+* as such, they have a different cadence to the framework "proper"
+* we wanted less formality, leveraging github collaboration capabilities
+* also, to allow for contributions that would not be compliant with ASF 
+  license restrictions, eg if dependent on LGPL.
+* (as noted previously) to reduce the size of the Isis codebase so that it
+  can be more clearly focussed on its core responsibilities.
+  
+== Development and Releases ==
+
+Isis rate of development has increased this quarter.  As noted in the previous
+report,  Eurocommercial Properties NV are sponsoring the development of Isis
+for two Isis committers, Martin Grigorov (also a Wicket committer), and myself.
+
+In addition, there is another small client that is now sponsoring our time to
+implement some additional capabilities of the framework.  This client was
+introduced to us by Oscar Bou, another Isis committer.
+
+This quarter we made one new release, v1.7.0 on 18 Oct 2014 [2].
+
+
+== Committers and PMC ==
+
+There has been one new committer added and change to the PMC this quarter
+* last committer added: Martin Grigorov, 4 Dec 2014 [3]
+* last PMC change: Martin Grigorov, 13 Dec 2014

+
+Project Status
+--------------
+jclouds has carried out one successful release (1.8.1) in the last quarter and
+is currently discussing the planning of the next major (1.9.0) release.
+
+The developer and user community remains active, with a welcome increase in
+involvement by new contributors. The PMC is trying to streamline the project
+structure and process for contributions in order to make best possible use of 
+limited core team time and in order to encourage continued interest and
+involvement from cloud developers.
+
+Community
+---------
+Last committer: 2014-07-30 (Andrea Turli)
+Last PMC member: 2014-11-30 (Chris Custine)
+
+As resolved at the October 2014 board meeting, the PMC chair is currently
+Andrew Phillips.
+
+The jclouds PMC would like to express its sincere thanks to Adrian Cole, who
+recently left the PMC, for his years of work in building jclouds and growing
+the jclouds community.
+
+Community Objectives
+--------------------
+What are the projects main plans and expectations for the community in the
+next period?
+
+* Establish consensus on the core purpose and functionality of the project
+moving forward and focus on ensuring this continues to be delivered
+* Establish clear guidance on the expectations around new contributions
+(technical and in terms of the type of contributions likely to be accepted)
+* Provide example code demonstrating current best coding and design practices
+* Create a more predictable "graduation path" for new contributions
+* Reduce overhead of the project setup to simplify releases and maintenance of
+core functionality

+lifecycle.
+
+* General Information
+
+  * Work on plugin releases to define common 2.2.1 minimum Maven version
+    and Java 5 requirements continues: we created an automated report [1]
+    that shows 33 plugins are ready from 49. Once finished, we expect to
+    start 3.x line of plugins with Maven 3 and Java 6 minimum requirements.
+
+  * There was a contest to create a new Maven logo and create a mascot: 
+    the winning logo is [2] and the winning mascot (officially christened) 
+    "The Maven Owl" [3]. Work is now in progress to integrate it to the Maven
+    site.
+
+  * We're studying Jira migration from Codehaus to Apache for better end-users
+    consistency, since we've got feedback about users lost when requiring to
+    create a Jira account at Codehaus.
+
+  * Compliance with ASF source header policy
+

+Attachment AW: Report from the Apache OpenOffice Project  [Andrea Pescetti]
+
+Apache OpenOffice is an open-source, office-document productivity
+suite providing six productivity applications based around the
+OpenDocument Format (ODF). OpenOffice is released on multiple
+platforms and in dozens of languages.
+
+### Issues for Board Awareness
+1) Andrea Pescetti, the current PMC Chair, gave his availability
+to resign as soon as a successor can be elected: after 2 years it's
+time for a rotation. Discussions are still ongoing, so the
+resolution won't arrive in time for the January Board meeting.
+
+2) The Apache OpenOffice community is still struggling in
+involving new volunteers who can independently work on big
+developments. Lack of appropriate mentors is still the main issue.
+
+3) Following the many discussions we had in 2014, OpenOffice now
+needs a replacement for Apache Extras. SourceForge provided a
+proof of concept that could work for us, but we prefer that the new
+location for Apache Extras is decided at an ASF-wide level (i.e.,
+that, as it used to be the case, all Apache projects put their
+"Extras" in a common space).
+
+### Community Development/Outreach Progress
+Since the last report, the project added two PMC members:
+Michael and Mechtilde Stehmann (mikeadvo, mechtilde) in
+December 2014. The latest committer addition is from May 2014 (tal).
+
+We continue to see new volunteers who would like to be involved,
+but we are able to use them for relatively easy tasks only, since we
+are still witnessing a reduced level of activity (in terms of both
+contributed lines of code and e-mails to the dev list) from more
+experienced developers.
+
+The OpenOffice custom infrastructure (wiki, forum) is now out of the
+"minimal maintenance" mode and is assigned to Jan Iversen.
+
+A new documentation effort for an end-users manual under the ALv2
+licence is stalled, even though new volunteers show up regularly.
+The problem is still the lack of appropriate coordinators/mentors.
+
+The localization community is growing, with new volunteers and new
+languages.
+
+A survey run just before ApacheCon EU showed that we have a lot
+on unexpressed potential in our volunteers, especially for
+non-development tasks. The challenge is now to implement the "better
+tools" and "better guidance" that these volunteers asked for, in
+several fields, from documentation to marketing to QA.
+
+OpenOffice had a dedicated track at ApacheCon Budapest, with
+talks spanning all the main project areas except core development.
+OpenOffice will have a dedicated booth and a devroom (shared
+with other OpenDocument Editors) at FOSDEM 2015, 31 January in
+Brussels.
+
+The mailing lists for user support, localization, development are
+quite active, the marketing, documentation, QA lists are moderately
+active. Activity in social media is still good. Community support
+forums remain popular with users, with an average of over 100 posts
+per day.
+
+### Product/Project Development Progress
+Apache OpenOffice 4.1.2 is currently in the plans. It will be a
+bugfix release, but it will contain a major new feature in terms of
+packaging, with digitally signed installers and executables that
+will be accepted by modern Windows systems without warnings.
+Considering the many counterfeited sites offering variants of
+OpenOffice and the number of our users, this will be a significant
+milestone for the project.
+
+Activities that are still foreseen, but mostly stalled at the
+moment, include: actions for an easier installation and availability
+on mainstream Linux distributions; a new localization process, now
+progressing in the l10n40 branch; a rewritten OOXML filter,
+allowing import and (later) export.
+
+The download trend remains very strong: Apache OpenOffice passed the
+130 million downloads at the end of 2014.

+
+The Apache PDFBox library is an open source Java tool for working with PDF
+documents.
+
+General Comments
+----------------
+
+There are no issues that require Board attention.
+
+Community
+---------
+
+There is a steady stream of contributions and bug reports from the community.
+
+John Hewson and Tilman Hausherr were added as committers and PMC members to
+our ranks in February 2014.
+
+493 (481 last report) subscribers on the user@ list 
+149 (155 last report) subscribers on the dev@ list
+
+170 JIRA tickets were created and 233 were resolved in the past 3 months.
+
+Releases
+--------
+
+Version 1.8.8 was released on 13nd of December 2014. It is an incremental
+bugfix release based on PDFBox 1.8.x.
+
+Development:
+------------
+
+The work on our next major release is an ongoing effort. The main topics are:
+
+- switch to java 1.6
+- enhance the parser
+- code cleanup
+- enhance rendering
+- enhance font handling
+- add unicode support
+- reduce memory footprint
+
+The long-awaited new major release is still under construction and there is
+still a lot to do. Most of the bigger parts are done so that we see the light
+at the end of the tunnel.
+
+Software Quality
+----------------
+
+There is an ongoing effort to improve PDFBox based on the analysis of
+different tools such as SonarQube, FindBugs and others. Only last month we
+reduced the number of issues as reported SonarQube by 20%.
+
+We joined our forces with the Tika project. Tim Allison ran some tests on
+their huge pool of test files pdfs (> 50.000 pdfs) to
+- avoid regressions when preparing the PDFBox 1.8.8 bugfix release
+- get clearance for updating Tika to use PDFBox 1.8.8
+- find differences/areas for improvements comparing the new major release 2.0 
+to the current released version 1.8.x
+- avoid regressions when switching the parser
+- find areas for improvements/unsupported features and corner case pdfs not
+exactly following the pdf specs

+Attachment BC: Report from the Apache Struts Project  [Rene Gielen]
+
+The Apache Struts MVC framework is a solution stack for creating elegant
+and modern action-based Java web applications. It favors convention over
+configuration, is extensible using a plugin architecture, and ships with
+plugins to support technologies such as REST, AJAX and JSON.
+
+The Struts team made one release in the last quarter:
+* Struts 2.3.21 - feature, bug fix and security fix release (2014-12-08)
+
+The last quarter was dominated by stabilizing and releasing Struts
+2.3.20, which is a major feature and bug fix release with more than 140
+issues addressed. It also addresses a security issue known as
+CVE-2014-7809 / JVN#88408929 [1]
+
+We have made no progress in releasing a security fix version of the
+already EOLed Struts 1 framework. However, a workaround now exists which
+was developed and is provisioned externally. [2]
+
+In the last quarter we released a fully reworked web site, including a
+brand new Struts logo [1]. The design was kindly provided by
+SoftwareMill, a polish software development shop our fellow PMC member
+Łukasz Lenart is working for.
+
+Within the reporting period we saw a significant rise in discussion and
+planning efforts regarding a major new framework development line to be
+released as Struts 3.
+
+No new committers or PMC members have been added in the last quarter.
+Last PMC member addition was on 2013-05-11, last committer addition on
+2014-01-06.
+
+We have no issues that require board assistance at this time.

+This report is almost a carbon copy of the last one. There have been a couple of
+releases and some discussion of progress, but no real change in the pace of the
+project. I am submitting with this report a resolution to change the project
+chair. I am finding that I have less and less time to fulfill the duties and
+I don't want the project to suffer from my lack of time. I intend to remain on
+the PMC and provide help to the new chair and oversight of releases, etc.
+
+The Tiles project continues to move at a slow pace, but work is ongoing.
+In the last quarter the project has produced two releases:
+
+ * Tiles Request 1.0.6 GA
+ * Tiles 3.0.5 GA
+
+The community to Tiles remains the same, a largely stable project.
+The same one or two people have been continuing to do much of the
+development for Tiles. There remains a little traffic in the users list
+and in the issue tracker and these are responded to and/or fixed usually
+within the week. The Spring community, and stackexchange.com, reamain the
+most active inputs to the community.

+
+There are no issues that needs the board's attention.
+
+
+Community
+=========

+One new committer was added since last report, leaving us with a total of 40
+committers.  Our last committer and PMC member was added on 12/16/2014.
+Activity on mailing list is normal, growth in subscriber list is almost
+identical to the previous quarter:
+
+    users@ - 457 subscribers (up 3% since last report)
+    dev@ - 298 subscribers (up 3% since last report)
+
+In Jira, 168 new tickets were opened and 258 were resolved or closed since
+the last board report, which had 202 and 103 respectively. 786 changes were
+committed to our git repository from 31 contributors. Last report had 624

+
+
+Events
+======
+
+The Fall 2014 ATS Summit was held at LinkedIn's offices in Sunnyvale. It was
+well received, with participants from committers, developers and users. Slides
+from most of the topics are available at
+
+     https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/TS/Presentations+-+2014
+
+A Bug Scrub event was held in the Chicago area, going through a large number
+of issues.
+
+We are planning for our next Summit event adjacent to the 2015 ApacheCon
+NA. In addition to that, we plan on holding "Hackathon" sessions before,
+during and after the conference.
+
+
+Releases
+========
+
+Three new releases were made since last report:
+
+    Apache Traffic Server v5.2.0 (released 1/14/2015)
+    Apache Traffic Server v5.1.2 (released 12/16/2014)
+    Apache Traffic Server v5.1.1 (released 10/31/2014)
+
+The v4.2.x version will be supported until Q3 2015, this is extended by an
+additional 6 month from the initial plan. We have decided to avoid making
+releases during the holidays around Thanksgiving and in December, and adjusted
+our release schedules accordingly. The 5.2.0 release was delayed for a full
+month as well. Learning from this, we expect release schedules to be further
+adjusted in the 2015-2016 plans.
+
+Planned releases include:
+
+   * 5.3.0: April 2015
+   * 6.0.0: July 2015

+Attachment BM: Report from the Apache Tuscany Project  [Jean-Sebastien Delfino]
+
+Apache Tuscany is an SOA framework based on OASIS OpenCSA and SCA.
+
+ISSUES
+- Community activity is very low.
+
+RELEASES
+- Last release was Tuscany SCA 2.0.1, 10/3/2013.
+
+COMMUNITY ACTIVITY
+- Last committer addition was Sebastian Millies, 12/4/2012.
+
+- Mailing list traffic is low with 18 messages on the user list and 12
+messages on the dev list in 2014, and one JIRA notification on the dev list
+in 2015.
+
+- There were no commits from the Tuscany committers in 2014, only one commit
+from Infra adding the Web site to SVN for svnpubsub. There was one commit from
+a Tuscany committer in 2015 adding a DOAP file to the project.
+
+- A discussion thread was started on Aug 16 on both user and dev lists to
+request community input on new development plans. One response from a PMC
+member suggesting a new release to pick up updated dependencies.
+
+- The PMC chair indicated on Aug 21 on the private list his intention to step
+out of the PMC and asked for volunteers to replace him as he is too busy with
+other work. Given the absence of response from any other PMC members, he is
+continuing for now with the little spare time he has left.
+
+- Another discussion thread was started on Sep 17 on the private list asking
+if there were enough PMC members to get the project going. Three responses,
+one too busy to continue, another still following the mailing list without
+seeing a realistic prospect to get involved in a release or commit activity,
+a third stating that we need enough PMC members willing to review and vote on
+releases or new committers/PMCs but volunteering to do that.
+
+BRANDING
+- The project needs to update logos with ™.

+Attachment BN: Report from the Apache VXQuery Project  [Till Westmann]
+
+Apache VXQuery implements a parallel XML Query processor.
+
+ISSUES
+
+There are no issues that require the board's attention at this time.
+
+STATUS
+
+Apache VXQuery graduated from the incubator in July 2014. Feature development in
+the last 3 month was slow. Most work went into the paper on performance
+evaluation (and comparison with other systems).
+
+COMMUNITY
+
+All PMC members came in through graduation, all committers are PMC members.
+The community is still small. Last committer (Steven Jacobs) was added in
+September 2013.
+
+COMMUNITY OBJECTIVES
+
+- Continued focus on completing the engine and on growing the community. The
+  paper that will hopefully increase the visibility of the project should be 
+  finished in January.
+- Focus on bringing off-list communication back to the mailing list (a number
+  of discussions happened off-list and were not brought back).
+
+RELEASES
+
+Apache VXQuery 0.4 was released on Sep 7, 2014

+Attachment BP: Report from the Apache Whirr Project  [Andrew Bayer]
+
+Apache Whirr is a library for running services like Hadoop or ZooKeeper in the
+cloud.
+
+Releases:
+No new releases this quarter. Last release was 0.8.2, April 2013.
+
+Community:
+The PMC composition did not change, and we had no new committers since
+the last report. The last PMC change was the addition of Andrew Bayer
+in November of 2012, and the last new committer was Graham Gear, also
+in November of 2012.
+
+Issues:
+No news - we need to start the process of going to the Attic.

+-----------------------------------------
+Attachment BQ: Report from the Apache Wink Project  [Luciano Resende]
+
+Apache Wink is a project that enables development and consumption of
+REST style web services. The core server runtime is based on the
+JAX-RS (JSR 311) standard. The project also introduces a client
+runtime which can leverage certain components of the server-side
+runtime. Apache Wink delivers component technology that can be easily
+integrated into a variety of environments.
+
+There are no issues that require Board attention at the moment.
+
+Community:
+The Wink project has a small community which is not very active. We have
+had discussions on how to increase community activity, but no concrete
+activity has actually been executed. Having said that, I believe Wink is 
+a mature project with active users and we should not consider any retirement
+actions at the moment. 
+Last svn activity shows couple patches being applied towards wink website 
+in August, but actually no code change since december 2013.
+Mailing lists are also slow as usual in the past year.
+
+Releases:
+* Last release was Apache Wink 1.4.0 which was released on September 15, 2013
+
+Committers or PMC changes:
+* Voted Gerhard Petracek was added as a Wink committer in August 2013.
+
+Trademark/Branding:
+* No known issues.
+
+Legal Issues:
+* None

+
+    A. The meeting of January 21, 2015
+
+       See: board_minutes_2015_01_21.txt
+
+       Tabled.
+
+ 4. Executive Officer Reports
+
+    A. Chairman [Brett]
+
+       I've started to pull together the resources for the Annual meeting in
+       late March (after the next and final meeting of the current board).
+       I plan to set the record date and send out formal notices in the
+       next week.
+
+       I hope to encourage people unable to attend the meeting to submit
+       non-voting proxies well in advance of the meeting, and will see what
+       we can do to make that process easier. I also expect to perform the
+       Omnibus resolution using the voter tool again, so that we do not need
+       to pass any resolutions during the meeting itself.
+
+    B. President [Ross]
+
+       Branding: Shane has requested that Mark Radcliffe join the board meeting
+       during the discussion items to help us understand the role of trademarks
+       within the ASF. He will join at 11AM PT. I hope that we can make time for
+       this.
+
+       EA: Usual support work. Shane has requested that our EA help more with
+       branding items. This is something we have been offering for a long
+       time. We are working on identifying concrete ways in which we can
+       empower Melissa to take action. I intend to move Melissa too a PEO
+       organization (Virtual) assuming no surprises in the cost of doing so or
+       objections from Melissa (we do not expect it to increase ASF costs
+       significantly, if at al). This may be a temporary measure but as
+       previously reported we need to take action and this point a PEO is the
+       only viable option. See the vice Chairman report for more detail.
+
+       Branding: VP Brand Management expresses concern about management of our
+       brands in projects where the brand is highly valuable. Our policies
+       appear to be working to date. Delegating to the PMCs has spread the
+       workload sufficiently that increased vigilance on complex cases is not
+       posing a significant problem.  However, Shane warns that the recent
+       interest in external related foundations will only serve to increase
+       the brand management workload. Shane has invited Mark Radcliffe of
+       DLAPiper to speak to the board today, though this is not related to the
+       concerns raised. The discussion item is the importance of brand
+       management tot he ASF in preparation for budget planning.
+
+       Fundraising: We continue to iron out wrinkles in the Fundraising
+       process. Each month it seems to be running more smoothly. Processes are
+       sufficiently well defined for Hadrian to participate in the exploration
+       of a CRM for managing sponsor relations (something Melissa had
+       previously been driving in her own time), No decision has been made at
+       this point.
+
+       Marketing and Publicity: Sally produced our first quarterly report.
+       This is a good start though not quite what I had envisioned. We will
+       continue to work on and improve this in the coming quarters. Sally
+       helped with the CRM discussions and provided feedback to Hadrian. It is
+       not felt that VP Marketing requires a CRM, however, if possible I would
+       like to see us doing a better job of capturing knowledge from this
+       office. That being said, fundraising support remains the priority.
+       Sally has revisited the home page (not site) redesign discussions based
+       on extensive feedback from the membership.
+
+       Infrastructure: An excellent, productive month for Infra - well done
+       team!  Hardware budget is expected to be reduced thanks to a
+       combination of credit with multiple cloud providers. My thanks go to VP
+       Infra for making this happen. Whimsy was identified as a critical
+       service that infra need to manage.  This resulted in some discussion
+       about how best to manage the service. Sam Ruby has been working with
+       the infra team on this topic. There has been excellent progress on
+       automating machine builds and retiring old machines. In the case of
+       LDAP this introduced a few problems which are being addressed in order
+       of priority. We had some initial discussion about the CMS used by many
+       Apache projects. This system is very much hacked together and is
+       largely unmaintainable without significant expense. No decisions has
+       been made on how to proceed, future reports will update. Some project
+       specific services  (Maven and Cassandra) are progressing nicely. 
+
+       No report from Travel Assistance. Plans for ApacheCon NA are in progress. 
+
+       Budget: Budget planning is a little behind schedule but I do have
+       complete numbers from Virtual now. We are progressing with one office
+       having submitted their budget numbers already. Expect an early draft
+       within the week.
+
+       Additionally, please see Attachments 1 through 6.
+
+
+    C. Treasurer [Chris]
+
+        The 2013 990 Net Assets and other items have been clarified on our
+        tax preparation for FY2013. Everything seems in order and Chris and
+        Tom had a call to discuss on 1/23/15.
+        
+        The Treasurer’s Office initiated a series of wires to fully transfer
+        all of the remaining funds in WFS to Citizen’s Bank leaving a small
+        amount in WFS (less than 10K) to cover any incoming expenses. We
+        expect to finalize the remaining funds transfer and decommission
+        WFS in the next month.
+        
+        1099s for contractors have been issued by Virtual.
+        
+        Virtual has been working with VP, Press and Marketing for the year
+        in review reports and quarterly reports, providing financial data
+        and other information to assist in the report preparation.

+
+
+    D. Secretary [Craig]
+
+       Secretary continues to operate smoothly. In January, 65 iclas, three cclas,
+       and five grants were received and filed.
+
+    E. Executive Vice President [Rich]
+
+       I will be late to the meeting by about 30 minutes. I will be there to answer
+       questions, if any, by the end of the meeting.
+
+       I am scrambling to get the schedule for ApacheCon NA put together, and while
+       I've received a LOT of help from various people, the current CFP tools are
+       woefully inadequate for the task. However, we should have a schedule, and
+       keynotes, announced early next week.
+
+       Meanwhile, I have delegated most of the work for ApacheCon EU to Jan Iversen,
+       so that I'm not trying to do manage two events, and I am looking around for
+       someone that might be interested in stepping up to rotate ApacheCon NA events
+       with me.
+
+       Rich needs help with ApacheCon planning; Sam volunteered to
+       help.
+
+    F. Vice Chairman [Greg]
+    
+       Apologies for the short report, yet upon substantive matter:
+       after speaking with Ross (President) and David (VP Infra), we
+       have decided to move one contractor to an employee status via
+       the PEO (professional employer organization) framework provided
+       by Virtual as an experiment for the next two months. At the May
+       Board meeting, a complete solution for all US-based contractors
+       will be provided for Board review and consideration.
+       
+       Background: there are two options remaining open: PEO-based
+       employment, and a third-party whole-option contract. Moving one
+       contractor to the PEO solution will provide us needed detail.
+
+       The goal for resolution of the contractor issue is to have a
+       recommendation for the incoming board.

+
+ 8. Discussion Items
+    Mark: Trademarks are a valuable asset for ASF. Trademark rules vary 
+    by country. Virtually all countries protect rights only through registration. 
+    Many unsavory people register other peoples' trademarks as a
+    business. Risks are most often on ASF users, not ASF per se. 
+    As a practical matter, projects need to select brands that are available. 
+    Open source has "won the war" and is now ubiquitous. Now there are 
+    lawsuits based on GPL interpretation by people who are just trying to 
+    make money from the legal process, not community policing as we 
+    have seen in the past. 
+    
+    Jim: Need to balance the cost versus benefit of registration.
+    
+    Shane: Looks like the "sweet spot" of registration is somewhat more 
+    than we are doing now. But consider that a third party has registered 
+    our Hadoop trademark in China. This will not hurt Apache but may 
+    very well hurt our downstream users. And eventually this may hurt Apache 
+    if projects lose support from these users.
+    
+    Jim: Once a trademark is registered, are we then required to police it?
+    
+    Mark: ASF is required to police brands regardless of registration (or not).
+    If ASF doesn't have the money, users may well contribute to registration costs. 
+    
+    Ross: Users are represented by PMCs. We need to make sure that 
+    PMCs step up, with foundation support.

+Attachment 2: Report from the VP of Brand Management  [Shane Curcuru]
+
+Worked on clearing podling name search entries; however not all PPMCs are
+performing the needed steps before submitting.
+
+Submitted two educational talks on branding plus a potential barcamp/PMC
+tutorial at ApacheCon Austin.
+
+Denied a services branding request using a derivative of a registered Apache
+mark that would highly likely be infringing if used. While it is positive this
+third party requested permission first, it is puzzling why they would request
+permissions for something so clearly inappropriate.
+
+Requested branding updates related to improper use of our HADOOP mark on the
+new opendataplatform.org website.  As many popular Apache projects grow in
+widespread use and broad commercial interest, it will become more important
+than ever to ensure that our PMCs understand the importance of their
+trademarks in managing an independent project, and ensuring that they have the
+tools - education, access to counsel when needed, and the ability to register
+their marks - to do so.
+
+As a new website, the specific legal trademark issues on opendataplatform.org
+are limited (so far) and it's not clear how the relevant companies will
+present branding going forward.  However third party projects like this that
+blur the lines between their software product offerings and the underlying
+Apache software products are likely to cause other issues about end user
+confusion as to the true source of software, as well as concern with many
+developers who may be interested in contributing to Apache projects.

+Attachment 3: Report from the VP of Fundraising  [Jim Jagielski]
+
+Fundraising continues steadily. There are a number of sponsors who indicated
+that will renew, but are late to respond. I hope that more communication will
+improve things in time.  We did receive payments from Bloomberg, Hortonworks,
+Winwork, and Samsung.
+
+We are putting more effort in deciding on the CRM tool to manage the process.
+Hadrian got actively involved had a couple of chats with HotWax Media. It is
+very hard to find a solution that will make everybody happy. Hadrian did
+research open source alternatives and is now researching commercial, hosted
+alternatives. Hadrian is close to making a formal proposal, very likely using
+a hosted solution. The proposal and hopefully a decision should be done before
+the next board meeting.
+
+We made a recommendation to update the Thanks page and Daniel Gruno provided a
+concrete layout proposal. The proposal was accepted and Hadrian is working
+with Daniel to update the Thanks page.
+
+Hadrian had a couple of phone calls with sponsors. The goal is to improve the
+dialogue with the sponsors and find out what sponsors see as valuable and
+expect from the foundation.  We anticipate this to lead to ideas and proposals
+for improvements, discuss on the fundraising@ lists and report back to the
+board.
+
+Cloudera upgraded its sponsorship to Platinum level. Yay, thanks Cloudera!

+requirements for their CRM solution, and producing the first ASF quarter
+annual report. The next report in this cycle is the ASF FY2014 Annual Report,

+Attachment 5: Report from the VP of Infrastructure  [David Nalley]
+
+New Karma:
+==========
+none
+
+Finances:
+==========
+17.49  - Domain name renewals
+979.12 - Amazon Web Services
+
+As a side note, we expect to spend dramatically less on hardwware than
+we originally budgeted. This difference is coming about due to a number
+of issues: Our build farm has been dramatically subsidized thanks to
+Yahoo who have provided ~30 physical machines (a long with hosting the
+hardware and providing smarthands support). We also now have multiple
+cloud providers giving us extensive credits, and we are moving a number
+of services to public cloud providers. This does mean a slight change
+from capital expenses to operational expenses, though I don't think that
+from our perspective that it matters much. 
+
+Operations Action Items:
+========================
+n/a
+
+Short Term Priorities:
+======================
+
+Codesigning
+-----------
+Tomcat generated two signing events this month, both for Tomcat 8.0.18
+
+Machine deprecation
+-------------------
+We've made significant progress in moving services off of some of our oldest hosts.
+In doing so we've also have spent a good chunk of time automating these
+services and making our deployment more robust. See more on this issue
+in the section on Automation in Long Range Priorities. 
+
+Backups
+-------
+We are just now beginning the deployment of a new centralized backup service. 
+The client installation as well as the server has been autoamted, expect
+to see more in this space in the coming months. 
+
+LDAP
+----
+The LDAP service has largely been rebuilt from the ground up. For
+background, the old machine that formerly served as our svn master was
+also one of our LDAP machines, and when it failed, we were down to one
+very poorly performing instance in the US. Subsequently, we've rebuilt
+the entire service using configuration management, we again have two
+LDAP hosts in OSUOSL, that are easily handling the load. This has sped
+up many of the authn/authz actions that were slow last month. We've also
+deployed new LDAP instances to several of our cloud zones. While the
+services seems to be working well at this point, we did have a few
+hiccups, where the old LDAP servers were removing newly created
+accounts. The older LDAP servers were left in place after we repeatedly
+found a number of services that had either minotaur or harmonia
+hardcoded as LDAP servers. Because of these problems we removed the
+legacy instances, and are dealing with the problems caused as we find
+them. 
+
+Bugzilla
+--------
+Our three Bugzilla instances were still running on a 6 year old machine
+but have since been successfully puppetized and migrated to VMs in one of
+our cloud accounts. In the process we've worked fastidiously on improving
+the software deployment mechanism (software is now deployed as an
+OS-native package). 
+
+Long Range Priorities:
+======================
+
+Automation
+----------
+Significant progress to report this month. As indicated above, LDAP
+machines are all under configuration management. Additionally, we migrated
+all three of the Bugzilla instances and the git repositories to being
+completely managed by configuration management. After finding some
+problems with some of our CM-managed instances, we've adopted a process of
+destroying and recreating a service as a verification step prior to
+pressing a service into production status. 
+Naturally the new services we are bringing online, like the backup service
+are all managed under CM. 
+
+Technical Debt
+--------------
+The move of LDAP has uncovered a lot of hardcoded values and we've been
+working to pay that off. (referring to service names rather than
+specific machine identities, putting configuration in configuration
+management where possible. 
+
+General Activity:
+=================
+
+Bintray
+-------
+As of January 30th, we enabled Cassandra's debian repository on bintray
+and have been monitoring it closely. The service seems to be working
+well and appears to have fulfilled the needs of reducing our overall
+webserver traffic and has the bonus of giving more insight into the
+downlaods. You can see some of the statistics on the dashboard here:
+https://s.apache.org/bintray1
+https://s.apache.org/bintray2
+
+Maven
+-----
+
+A lot has been happening around Maven this period. 
+We've successfully been able to sync a copy of the Maven central
+repository, and are working to provide access to that store for the Maven
+PMC. 
+Additionally, Mark Thomas along with folks from the Maven PMC have been
+working on migrating the Maven contents of the Codehaus Jira instance to
+the ASF instance. Good progress has been made here, but much remains to be
+done.  
+
+
+Uptime Statistics:
+==================
+
+We experienced an issue where status.apache.org was reporting erroneous uptime
+statistics due to two unused LDAP checks, which unfortunately made it into the
+weekly ASF blog posts. Other than that, services have been running fairly
+smoothly aside from the Moin Moin Wiki which has experienced high load times
+for a couple of weeks. We are discussing what to do to remedy this. Overall,
+the total uptime for this year grew by 0.03%:
+
+
+Type:                Target:   Reality, total:  Reality, month:  Target Met:
+----------------------------------------------------------------------------
+Critical services:   99.50%             99.78%           99.82%      Yes
+Core services:       99.00%             99.83%           99.92%      Yes
+Standard services:   95.00%             99.02%           98.93%      Yes
+----------------------------------------------------------------------------
+Overall:             98.59%             99.60%           99.63%      Yes

+
+Tony Stevenson: 
+  - A lot of my time has been spent on 3 major tasks: 
+    - The rebuild of the LDAP service due to the poorly performing incumbent
+      instances. This combined with the retirement of eris (old svn-master) 
+      following a terminal hardware fault, we were limited to 1 LDAP instance
+      in the US and proved too much for minotaur to cope with. It appears that
+      the version of slapd on FreeBSD on minotaur leaked memory at a phenomonal
+      rate.  The new LDAP service has been moved to the latest slapd available
+      in Ubuntu 14.04, it has been fully built using puppet, and configured so
+      that new LDAP hosts can be added with ease.
+    - Continue preparation and understanding for a rebuild the email
+      infrastructure. This has mostly taken a back seat but has been brought up
+      to the top of my todo list now following the completion of the LDAP task
+      above, and the CMS task below.
+    - In line with our current policy of retiring hardware that is over 4 years
+      old, and trying to make all services pupept managed; David asked me to
+      review the CMS zone on baldr (which is now >7 years old) to ensure we can
+      move the service and have it managed with puppet. However upon
+      investigation it quickly became apparent moving the service was far from
+      trivial given the requirement for ZFS alone.  Further reading of the code
+      highlighted some areas of concern for me that I felt needed highlighting
+      as they would likely carry over technical debt into the future and that
+      is something we are working extremely hard to remove.  On the back of
+      these findings and my inherited knowledge of the service I presented
+      David with 3 options of how I thought we could manage the service going
+      forward along with the estimated costs, and the pro's and con's of each
+      option. There were: 
+      1 - Move CMS to another FreeBSD host - undesireable given our current
+          trajectory of moving away from FreeBSD, it meant entirely replicating
+          the FreeBSD 9 jail too. This was the path of least change, but 
+          perhaps most difficult.
+      2 - Move the service to Ubuntu and fully puppet controlled the beginning.
+          This might have been the ideal scenario, but the underlying hardcoded
+          FreeBSD aspects, the need for ZFS (which is present in Ubuntu), and 
+          the very specific perl that is in place I felt this would take a long
+          time to complete and would be significantly error prone. We would 
+          very likely miss something and this would need to fixed on demand. My
+          confidence level was low that we could execute a clean migration. 
+          This would be the most time consuming option, but if retention of the
+          CMS was important the best option.
+      3 - Deprecate the CMS, and allow projects to determine their own
+          publishing/transformations options. We would still require use of 
+          pubsub technology, but projects can commit into that their HTML, 
+          either directly edited or dervied from markdown whcih they can keep
+          in their project repo (some of the finer details will need to be 
+          worked out later. This would essentially be the cheapest option,
+          remove technical debt, and while the timeline would be many months
+          contractor/volunteer time could be kept to a minimum.

+Attachment I: Report from the Apache BookKeeper Project  [Ivan Kelly]
+
+BookKeeper is a distributed, reliable, and high performance
+logging service. The project also includes Hedwig which is
+a highly scalable Pub/Sub service built on top of ZooKeeper
+and BookKeeper with strong durability guarantees.
+
+= Project Status =
+
+We made a press release, announcing our move to TLP, through the
+foundation on 2015-01-27. This triggered Yahoo to publish a blog post
+about their internal usage of BookKeeper in their cloud messaging
+service.
+
+Development activity has been low this month, due to the committers
+being occupied with other projects in their jobs. The two committers
+who had been working for Yahoo, left the company in the January. As
+Yahoo is one of the primary users of BookKeeper, it is bad that they
+lack anyone internally to commit on the Apache project. We are
+currently working on trying to find someone else to become a committer
+from Yahoo.
+
+= Releases =
+Our last release was 4.2.4, released on 2015-01-22.
+
+We are in the process of cutting a release for 4.3.1, which we expect
+to release before the end of February
+
+= Community Status =
+There have been no committers added since we became TLP (2014-11-19).

+Attachment O: Report from the Apache Cocoon Project  [Thorsten Scherler]
+
+Apache Cocoon 3 is a major rewrite of Cocoon 2.2. Like Cocoon 2 it is based
+around the concept of pipelines and sitemaps and it is very similar to Cocoon
+2.2 in many respects but is slimmed down and designed to be easily used with
+Java code (= no frameworks required!).
+
+On top of this, Cocoon 3 has the goal of becoming the best available platform
+for RESTful webservices and web applications.
+
+Issues needing board attention:

+Attachment P: Report from the Apache Community Development Project  [Ulrich Stärk]
+
+The Community Development PMC is responsible for helping people become
+involved with Apache projects
+
+
+Project Status
+--------------
+
+No issues require board attention at this time.
+
+PMC changes
+-----------
+
+Daniel Gruno has been voted into the Community Development PMC on 2015-01-08.
+
+Since artifacts produced by ComDev are usually documentation on our website
+which is writable for all Apache committers, we usually do not add committers
+to the ComDev project.
+
+Google Summer of Code
+---------------------
+
+GSoC applications are open for organizations and the ASF will submit an
+application again this year. A call for project ideas has been issued to
+projects. Initial responses were low in numbers but in the meantime we have
+gathered 88 project ideas at http://s.apache.org/gsoc2015ideas which should be
+enough for getting started.
+
+ComDev & Events
+---------------
+
+Most of the discussions on the dev@community.apache.org mailing list currently
+revolve around ApacheCon 2015 in Austin with feedback and contributions coming
+from all corners of the foundation.
+
+Other
+-----
+
+Daniel Gruno is spearheading an overhaul of projects.apache.org. The current
+work in progress is at https://projects-new.apache.org/.
+
+Bertrand has initiated a discussion about a maturity model for our projects
+that describes - on a high level - how our projects operate. A first version
+can be found at

+Attachment AB: Report from the Apache Falcon Project  [Srikanth Sundarrajan]
+
+ABOUT
+-----
+Falcon is a data processing and management solution for Hadoop
+designed for data motion, coordination of data pipelines,
+lifecycle management, and data discovery. Falcon enables end
+consumers to quickly onboard their data and its associated
+processing and management tasks on Hadoop clusters.
+
+
+ISSUES
+------
+There are no issues that require board's attention at this time.
+
+
+STATUS
+------
+Falcon was accepted as a TLP in December 2014. During the last 30
+days 33 new issues were created in the issue tracking system and
+30 were closed during the same period. During the last month we
+have witnessed good progress on the UI front for Falcon (FALCON-790).
+With UI, we expect users to find it more easier to work with the
+Falcon system. The community has been having regular bi-weekly
+sync ups. These sync ups are being very helpful in steering the
+project. Recipes (FALCON-634) and Lifecycle functions (FALCON-965)
+would open up Falcon system for easy extensions and are being
+actively worked upon besides other bug fixes. Community is also
+discussing on mailing list on the way forward with respect to usage
+of Apache Oozie for orchestration. The outcome will decide how
+pipeline and lifecycle function orchestration will happen in
+Falcon going forward. We also announced Falcon as a TLP in ASF
+blog (http://s.apache.org/GT2)

+
+  No activity on the user mail list.
+
+  There was more activity on the dev mail list.
+  Two PMC members discussed a potential improvement and the originator

+  followup queries.
+
+  Just prior to report submission a discussion commenced about a potential
+  new skin based on Bootstrap. 
+
+  The Chair reminded the dev list that the project needs to make releases.
+
+  The Chair replied to some obscure comment regarding the previous Board
+  report, but there was no further followup (see 2014-11-25).
+
+  At this quarter, 5 additional PMC members responded to my draft report.
+  This confirms that there are sufficient people hanging around for us to

+Project Releases
+
+The last release of Gora (0.5) was on 20th September, 2014.
+
+Overall Project Activity since last report
+
+Consistent and encouraging. We see most activity happening
+on the dev@ list which is normal. There has been a consistent
+level of contribution to the codebase and community lists
+since the last reporting period. Recent activity includes
+work on utilising ASF Infra's Rackspace resources to run
+our GoraCI testing suite, an excellent effort to provide
+a suite of extension bridges to Gora from other langauges
+and upgrades of key module dependencies. The PMC are currently
+VOTE'ing on the release of Gora 0.6. It looks like 0.6 will 
+be released by the February board meeting.
+
+When were the last committers or PMC members elected?
+
+Talat Uyarer was elected as PMC member and committer
+on 2015-01-26 (yyyy-mm-dd).

+Hadoop is a set of related tools and frameworks for creating and managing
+distributed applications running on clusters of commodity computers.
+
+The 2.6 release added a large set of features and made many improvements,
+including transparent encryption, heterogeneous/tiered storage, support for
+Docker containers, reservation-based scheduling, node labels, S3a support,
+key management server (KMS), service registry, and rolling upgrades in YARN.
+
+Ongoing development in YARN includes a new round of improvements to the
+timeline server (YARN-2928), nodemanager decommission and work-preserving
+restart (YARN-914, YARN-1336, YARN-556), improved locking in the RM
+(YARN-3091), shared cache (YARN-1492), and disk as a resource (YARN-2139).
+
+Ongoing development in HDFS includes erasure coding (HDFS-7285), support for
+truncate (HDFS-3107), namenode synchronization (HDFS-7396), and a native
+client (HDFS-6994).
+
+MapReduce received a healthy set of bug fixes and stability improvements.

+Corinthia
+
+Corinthia is a toolkit/application for converting between and editing common
+office file formats, with an initial focus on word processing. It is
+designed to cater for multiple classes of platforms - desktop, web, and
+mobile - and relies heavily on web technologies such as HTML, CSS, and
+JavaScript for representing and manipulating documents. The toolkit is
+small, portable, and flexible, with minimal dependencies. The target
+audience is developers wishing to include office viewing, conversion, and
+editing functionality into their applications.
+
+Corinthia has been incubating since 2014-12-08.
+
+Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
+
+  1. Discuss and decide on a medium-term roadmap
+  2. Grow the community
+  3. Finalize source structure change (easy access for new developers)

+Droids
+
+Droids aims to be an intelligent standalone robot framework that allows to
+create and extend existing droids (robots).
+
+Droids has been incubating since 2008-10-09.
+
+Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
+
+  1. Activity
+  2. Name Search
+
+Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be

+HTrace
+
+HTrace is a tracing framework intended for use with distributed systems
+written in java.
+
+HTrace has been incubating since 2014-11.
+
+Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
+
+  1. Continue to grow the HTrace community
+  2. Continue to develop and release stable HTrace incubating artifacts
+  3. Continue to explore the integration of the HTrace framework into other
+     Apache products
+
+Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
+aware of?
+
+  Around January 20th HTrace successfully made the first release whilst in
+  the Apache Incubator.  This was the outcomes of no-less than 10 release
+  candidates and as many VOTE's.  In all every release candidate was very
+  well managed with HTrace community providing excellent feedback to the
+  release manager. Rather than then entire 10 release candidate exercise
+  being a pain point for the community, it appears to have strengthened all
+  involved. Well done HTrace.
+
+How has the community developed since the last report?
+
+  It is early incubating days for HTrace. The community has attracted in
+  particular a new member who is doing a sterling job on a new UI for
+  HTrace. Additionally it should be noted that the entire
+  htrace-3.1.0-incubating release effort has certainly brought the existing
+  community on leaps and bounds.
+
+How has the project developed since the last report?
+
+  The project has progressed significantly. In fact, it was highlighted on
+  at least one occasion that documentation supporting a release candidate
+  should be further clarified/improved due to the dynamic progressive nature
+  of the HTrace codebase. As an early incubating project this is accepted as
+  a positive move.

+SAMOA
+
+SAMOA provides a collection of distributed streaming algorithms for the most
+common data mining and machine learning tasks such as classification,
+clustering, and regression, as well as programming abstractions to develop
+new algorithms that run on top of distributed stream processing engines
+(DSPEs).  It features a pluggable architecture that allows it to run on
+several DSPEs such as Apache Storm, Apache S4, and Apache Samza.
+
+SAMOA has been incubating since 2014-12-15.
+
+Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
+
+  1. Create bylaws for the project
+  2. Migrate documentation from the old website
+  3. Start committing patches
+
+Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be

+
+  None
+
+How has the community developed since the last report?
+
+  We have started using the official Apache channels to discuss about SAMOA.
+  A couple of new people have showed up on the mailing lists.  We have one
+  new contributor submitting patches.
+
+  Mailing list activity (since January 2015):
+
+  * @dev      101 messages
+
+  Jira issues backlog (since January 2015):
+
+  * Created:  13
+  * Resolved: 2
+
+How has the project developed since the last report?
+
+  The project setup is going on nicely.  We got the SGA from Yahoo and
+  migrated the code to the Apache git repository, enabled GitHub integration
+  (https://github.com/apache/incubator-samoa), migrated the website to the
+  Apache infrastructure and added the Incubator branding
+  (http://samoa.incubator.apache.org), enabled testing via Travis CI.

+
+Shepherd/Mentor notes:
+
+  Matthew B. Franklin (mfranklin):
+
+    Lot's of code is being committed to the project, but mostly by a couple of
+    developers.  There also does not appear to be much discussion on the list
+    in last period, likely  due to the low number of developers.
+
+    I recommend the podling focus on increasing the size and participation of
+    the community as one of the issues to address prior to graduation.
+
+--------------------
+Slider
+
+Slider is a collection of tools and technologies to package, deploy, and
+manage long running applications on Apache Hadoop YARN clusters.
+
+Slider has been incubating since 2014-04-29.
+
+Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
+
+  1. Building a diverse developer and user community
+  2. Achieving broader adoption of the existing code and slider-deployable
+     applications (examples: HBase, Accumulo)
+  3. Making slider better at deploying other applications, so improving
+     takeup.
+
+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?
+
+  We're getting more people on the mailing list asking for improvements;
+  anyone with a patch is being helped to get it in. That builds up the
+  developer base and is intended to move it from a single team to one
+  distributed community development.  As we grow, we're proposing moving
+  from a single slider developer list to:a separate user mailing list, and a
+  third list for the JIRA/svn/git events. This will focus the developer list
+  around discussion, with a user list to help build that user community. We
+  do of course expect developers to also subscribe to the user list.
+
+How has the project developed since the last report?
+
+  We've done a source-only release in November, 0.60.0-incubating, in sync
+  with features in Hadoop 2.6, with a binary packing version,
+  0.61.0-incubating has just been voted for release (3-feb 2015); the
+  incubator vote is now pending. It was nice to see tests and a vote on the
+  release from an external user & patch submitter -community engagement
+  includes things like this.
+
+  A new release, 0.70 is being created with the release planned
+  mid-February. This will include improved features and fixes —especially
+  those reported by users of the 0.60 release. For example, one group wanted
+  short-lived applications on secure clusters, instances where Slider does
+  not need to worry about keytab expiry. Another need of people writing
+  slider-deployed applications was for a placement policy of "only ever ask
+  for component placement where instances were before"; this is needed for
+  Kafka.
+
+  Some of the feature requests are quite "ambitious", especially those
+  related to deployed components providing information back to the Web/REST
+  GUIs, and extending the configuration model to include: more
+  on-target-machine configuration, per-instance configuration and better
+  strategies for placing components within the YARN cluster. These requests
+  do represent real needs; even if they are long term features we need to
+  think about how to get there.
+
+  We're discussing supplementing the dev@ mailing list with issues@ and
+  user@ lists; the issues list for all JIRA updates -creation and completion
+  would still go to the developer list. This is to separate the noise of
+  JIRA-centric development from a developer list focused on broader
+  application features and building a community. We don't want to scare
+  people off from too much JIRA, or worse: lose what they have to say in the
+  emails. Similarly, the user@ list is where we want to encourage users. The
+  original rationale for a single list was "one single community
+  discussion", but it's not clear its worked out that way.
+
+Date of last release:
+
+  2014-11: Slider 0.60 (source, against Hadoop 2.6)

+Tamaya
+
+Tamaya is a highly flexible configuration solution based on an modular,
+extensible and injectable key/value based design, which should provide a
+minimal but extendible modern and functional API leveraging SE, ME and EE
+environments.
+
+Tamaya has been incubating since 2014-11-14.
+
+Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
+
+  1. Publish a first release soon.
+  2. Keep focus for a reasonable functionality and way forward.
+  3. Keep up/increase community engagement.
+
+Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be

+
+  No.
+
+How has the community developed since the last report?
+
+  Reinhard Sandtner was successfully elected to join as a new committer,

+
+How has the project developed since the last report?
+
+  We identified a minimalistic but extendible API. Basic implementation work
+  for Java 8 and Java 7 is ongoing, but makes overall good progress.
