Incubator PMC report for July 2022

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 presently 35 podlings incubating. Podlings made 4 distinct releases. The Crail project retired, Doris and InLong graduated last month, and Uniffle has joined the Incubator.

HiveMall started a retirement vote.

This month we were missing reports from Annotator, Livy, Marvin-AI, Pegasus, Spot, and Teaclave. Spot, MarvinAI and Livy have missed more than one report in a row and roll calls will be held. DataLab, EventMesh, Flagon, Milagro and PonyMail don't have mentors' signoff and will also be asked to report next month. Shenyu also missed a report but is up for graduation. PonyMail has only one mentor and had twice missed signoff.

MXNet is working on some branding issues.

We discussed last year whether Livy was graduating or retiring, and the community has shown some interest in continuing, but there continues to be no activity. There was a discussion about a retired project Ambari coming back to the Incubator. As several ASF members were involved, it wasn't seen as being needed, and it could go straight to being a top level project with the approval of the board.

During the graduation discussion on Shenyu, several minor branding issues were identified and corrected.

Several podlings have had talks accepted for both ApacheCon Asia and NA, and we also have the Incubator track at ApachCon NA.
