Incubator PMC report for August 2019

The Apache Incubator is the entry path into the ASF for projects and codebases wishing to become part of the Foundation's efforts.

This monthly report is in markdown so that it's easier to read. If you are not viewing this in that format, it can be seen here:
https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/INCUBATOR/August2019

There are presently 47 podlings incubating. In July, podlings executed 9 distinct releases. We added five IPMC members and no IPMC members retired. We have no new podlings this month, but there have been a couple of enquires about new projects, and some proposals are being worked on. A couple of podlings are heading towards graduation in the next few months, including Druid.

Some podlings Amaterasu, SDAP, Tamaya, Toree didn't submit a report and have been asked to do so next month.

Two podlings that failed to report last month reported this month. However, Amaterasu didn't report for a second time. A couple of podlings had trouble getting previous months reports signed off have attracted new mentors.

TVM also gained a new mentor. Some podlings are reporting on or after the deadline and not allowing time to discussing the content on list. The quality of those reports may suffer as a result.

There were three IP clearances.

Apache Druid has brought up it graduation and may have an issue with its name being the same as a project by another company. The problem is being dealt with, but this may delay graduation depending on the outcome of those discussions.

The Incubator made a podling release (MXNet) that contained stock photos of unknown origin and licensing. Another release (from Tuweini) included Category X (GPL) licensed software.

The incubator policy page has been cleaned up and updated to be easier to understand. Anything that was guidelines and not policy has been removed. This material was included elsewhere in the incubator and ASF websites, and there was no need for the duplication. Podlings can always request to do things in a different way as long as it is in line with the Apache Way.

Further work was done on a page outlining some of the issues are that podlings might encounter during incubation and on the Incubator cookbook. The incubator homepage was also updated to be more friendly and service orientated.

There were several lengthy discussions of the role of the Incubator, and its purpose, and while they were a little heated in a few places, they were constructive.

There seems to be consensus on how the Incubator should handle podling releases (see proposal below). It's thought that education of mentors and podlings on the Apache Way is lacking. The Incubator will discuss what can be done about that.

A couple of podlings have not been able to attract IPMC votes on their releases in the usual 72 hours.

The missing incubator report wiki pages have been transferred to the new wiki.

Based on several months discussion, the Incubator has a proposal for the Board to consider.

Summary

The Incubator PMC has been discussing allowing podlings to make releases which are not fully compliant with the ASF release policies.

Such releases would include a DISCLAIMER-WIP statement of being a "work in progress", pointing to the specific issues that make them non-compliant.

The IPMC is seeking approval from the Board to proceed based on the details of this proposal, below.

Some Background

The IPMC requires clarity from the Board if podlings need to follow ASF's release policy and distribution policy while in incubation. This question has been asked before, and the answer was unclear or strongly suggested that podling releases must follow ASF policy. What is happening in practice is that the IPMC allows releases with minor issues to go ahead and assumes they will be fixed in a later release (before graduation) and stops releases with any serious problem from going ahead (with an IPMC member or two voting -1). A -1 vote is not a veto but usually stops a release, there's only been a handful of successful releases with -1 votes. We have consensus among IPMC members that allowing podling releases with minor issues is a correct approach even it doesn't follow ASF policy. Serious problems, such as; including GPL licensed software, including compiled code, or copyright violations, in a release are currently seen as a reason to vote -1 on a release. Podlings do try and do the right thing but about 1 in 5 podling releases has a problem like this. Historically there's been a few releases with serious issues that have got legal and Incubator VP approval to make a release on a one by one, once-off basis. The Incubator wants to allow podling to make non compliant releases to ease their progress through the incubating process. We've come up with an alternate disclaimer that clearly states that the release may not be compliant with ASF release or distribution policy and lists known issues. The legal committee have confirmed that the the Incubator as a TLP needs to follow release policy and can only make releases with issues if it considered to be special in some way.

Proposal

The IPMC can allow non-compliant releases to be distributed without IPMC VP or legal VP approval, based on a documented list of issues which are acceptable for such non-compliant incubating releases. Such releases will include an alternative "work in progress" DISCLAIMER-WIP to make users aware of the issues . When this occurs, podlings document the issues as blocking graduation and carry on incubating. They will not be allowed to graduate until all such release issues have been fixed.

Notes

The IPMC and legal committee have come up with a well-defined list of those issues. See https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-469

This list will be distributed to mentors, IPMC members and podlings so that everyone's expectations are clear. This proposal does not change the need for an IPMC vote on podling releases, which will be considered separately.

The new DISPLACMER-WIP disclaimer can be found here: https://incubator.apache.org/policy/incubation.html#disclaimers

DataSketches

DataSketches is an open source, high-performance library of stochastic streaming algorithms commonly called "sketches" in the data sciences. Sketches are small, stateful programs that process massive data as a stream and can provide approximate answers, with mathematical guarantees, to computationally difficult queries orders-of-magnitude faster than traditional, exact methods.

DataSketches has been incubating since 2019-03-30.

Three most important unfinished issues to address before graduating:

  1. Our vote letter on general@ had no responses from anyone (not just IPMC members) for the first 73 hours. After sending a pleading reminder email I finally got 3 +1 binding votes. I'm trying to be polite and not needle folks, but I need guidance on how to get IPMC members' attention. I realize the vote must stay open for at least 72 hours, but having to wait until the last minute get any response is very aggravating. Would it be fair to send out reminder notices on 24 hour intervals?
  2. Continue to perfect the release process.
  3. After we get this first release, we need to finish migrating the remaining repos.

Are there any issues that the IPMC or ASF Board need to be aware of?

  1. Yes. In addition to #1 above, not all of our Mentors have been involved. Why do Mentors sign up if they do not or cannot mentor?

How has the community developed since the last report?

Not too much at the committer level. We have drawn the interest of a few new scientists in our work, but they did not learn of our work from Apache. It is still very early. I am speaking at ApacheCon In September, hopefully we can attract some interest there. I am hoping to attract some committers.

How has the project developed since the last report?

We continue to evolve the project and make commits to the code base. We are also heavily integrated into the Druid platform.

IPMC/Shepherd notes:

Justin Mclean: 72 hours is a minimum and a podling may not attract all needed votes in that time. I understand it may be frustrating but remember IPMC member are volunteers and mostly do this work unpaid in their spare time. If you need more Mentors just ask on the incubator general list.

Edgent

Apache Edgent is a programming SDK and micro-kernel style runtime that can be embedded in gateways and small footprint edge devices enabling local, real-time, analytics on the continuous streams of data coming from equipment, vehicles, systems, appliances, devices and sensors of all kinds (for example, Raspberry Pis or smart phones). Working in conjunction with centralized analytic systems, Apache Edgent provides efficient and timely analytics across the whole IoT ecosystem: from the center to the edge.

Edgent has been incubating since 2016-02-29.

Three most important unfinished issues to address before graduating:

  1. Re-creating a working community
  2. Re-populating the PPMC
  3. Replenishing the group of mentors

Are there any issues that the IPMC or ASF Board need to be aware of?

For the past months, there has been very few activity in the project There have been a hand full of Emails from external peoples in the last 3 months but the activity in the project has been solely by me (Julian).

Julian started an Approach for „Edgent Next“. This is a suggestion to re-activate activities in the edgent community and integrate it as a middle layer between several other IoT or Edge relared Projects.

This was also announced on the new iot@apache.orgmailto:iot@apache.org Mailing list but on both lists no feedbackl was responded yet.

The main problem we have is that the only active people in the project came in Late and are not that firm with the codebase. Currently, we have a codebase for which we have a detailed understanding of the build, but almost none of the code itself. Furthermore, there has been a lot of activity in other projects and generally edge processing has developed further in the recent years.

Thus, there is some discussion going on about the core or the aim of the project to keep its significance and uniqueness.

How has the community developed since the last report?

  • Total, we have 82 subscribers to our mailing list, an increase of 5 since the last report.
  • There have been four questions asked by users and little discussions about these issues on the list
  • On April, 4th, Julian Feinauer has Talked about Edgent on the building iot 2019
  • On July 16th Julian Feinauer started a discussion About „Edgent Next“ on the edgent and iot Mailing lists

How has the project developed since the last report?

According to JIRA, 0 new issue were added and none were resolved in the last 90 days

How would you assess the podling's maturity?

After the withdrawal of most of the active committers and PPCM members currently a new committer, PPMC and mentor-base has to be built. Currently we try to re-gain the focus of edgent to Start to rebuild the community and resume development.

  • In November 2018, we added Julian Feinauer as a new committer and PPMC member.

Have your mentors been helpful and responsive?

I just double checked, but it seems our mentors are not existent there had been one or two issues where feedback was explicitly asked for, but both the PPMC as well as all mentors remained silent. Except Justin mentioning the absence of mentors. Christofer Dutz joined as new Mentor and is active in the project.
