We should publish our self-assessed Maturity Model, as described here;

All the requirements below have been satisfied.


CD10 - YES
The project produces Open Source software, for distribution to the public at no charge.

CD20 - YES
The project's code is easily discoverable and publicly accessible. 

CD30 - YES
The code can be built in a reproducible way using widely available standard tools. 

CD40 - YES
The full history of the project's code is available via a source code control system, in a way that allows any released version to be recreated. 

CD50 - YES
The provenance of each line of code is established via the source code control system, in a reliable way based on strong authentication of the committer. When third-party contributions are committed, commit messages provide reliable information about the code provenance.

LC10 - YES
The code is released under the Apache License, version 2.0. 

LC20 - YES
Libraries that are mandatory dependencies of the project's code do not create more restrictions than the Apache License does. 

LC30 - YES
The libraries mentioned in LC20 are available as Open Source software. 

LC40 - YES
Committers are bound by an Individual Contributor Agreement (the "Apache iCLA") that defines which code they are allowed to commit and how they need to identify code that is not their own. 

LC50 - YES
The copyright ownership of everything that the project produces is clearly defined and documented.

RE10 - YES
Releases consist of source code, distributed using standard and open archive formats that are expected to stay readable in the long term.

RE20 - YES
Releases are approved by the project's PMC (see CS10), in order to make them an act of the Foundation. 

RE30 - YES
Releases are signed and/or distributed along with digests that can be reliably used to validate the downloaded archives. 

RE40 - YES
Convenience binaries can be distributed alongside source code but they are not Apache Releases – they are just a convenience provided with no guarantee.

QU10 - YES
The project is open and honest about the quality of its code. Various levels of quality and maturity for various modules are natural and acceptable as long as they are clearly communicated. 

QU20 - YES
The project puts a very high priority on producing secure software.

QU30 - YES (Isn't JIRA a good venue for this? Also, Apache provides security@ mailing list)
The project provides a well-documented channel to report security issues, along with a documented way of responding to them. 8 

QU40 - YES (all Ignite APIs are backward compatible with previous releases)
The project puts a high priority on backwards compatibility and aims to document any incompatible changes and provide tools and documentation to help users transition to new features. 

QU50 - YES
The project strives to respond to documented bug reports in a timely manner.

CO10 - YES
The project has a well-known homepage that points to all the information required to operate according to this maturity model. 

CO20 - YES
The community welcomes contributions from anyone who acts in good faith and in a respectful manner and adds value to the project. 

CO30 - YES
Contributions include not only source code, but also documentation, constructive bug reports, constructive discussions, marketing and generally anything that adds value to the project. 

CO40 - YES
The community is meritocratic and over time aims to give more rights and responsibilities to contributors who add value to the project. 

CO50 - YES
The way in which contributors can be granted more rights such as commit access or decision power is clearly documented and is the same for all contributors. 

CO60 - YES
The community operates based on consensus of its members (see CS10) who have decision power. Dictators, benevolent or not, are not welcome in Apache projects. 

CO70 - YES
The project strives to answer user questions in a timely manner.

CS10 - YES
The project maintains a public list of its contributors who have decision power – the project's PMC (Project Management Committee) consists of those contributors.

CS20 - YES
Decisions are made by consensus among PMC members and are documented on the project's main communications channel. Community opinions are taken into account but the PMC has the final word if needed.

CS30 - YES
Documented voting rules are used to build consensus when discussion is not sufficient.

CS40 - YES
In Apache projects, vetoes are only valid for code commits and are justified by a technical explanation, as per the Apache voting rules defined in CS30.

CS50 - YES
All "important" discussions happen asynchronously in written form on the project's main communications channel. Offline, face-to-face or private discussions that affect the project are also documented on that channel.

IN10 - YES
The project is independent from any corporate or organizational influence.

IN20 - YES
Contributors act as themselves as opposed to representatives of a corporation or organization.
