Three most important unfinished issues to address before graduating:

  2. Finishing the software grant
  3. Release

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

No

How has the community developed since the last report?

It has been a slow quarter for us. Red Hat had a round of layoffs this quarter which affected their legal team, and the ones working on the Software Grant for Apache. It has pushed us back quite a ways as we've had to redo a bunch of the work. We're now targeting the end of June to have all the legal issues finished and the software grant completed.

How has the project developed since the last report?

See the above question.

IPMC/Shepherd notes:

[Calvin Kirs]2 mentors and multiple PPMCs are not subscribed to the private mailing list, also, it seems that more than half of the PPMC members are not active, which is normal, but I am curious about what happened.


Wayang

Wayang is a cross-platform data processing system that aims at decoupling the business logic of data analytics applications from concrete data processing platforms, such as Apache Flink or Apache Spark. Hence, it tames the complexity that arises from the "Cambrian explosion" of novel data processing platforms that we currently witness.

Wayang has been incubating since 2020-12-16.

Three most important unfinished issues to address before graduating:

  1. Release 1.0 (in progress)
  2. Update Website (we have issues to get the pipeline running, its messed a bit and INFRA could not help)

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

No, everything works!

How has the community developed since the last report?

We got significant traction, received commits from multiple individuals and organizations.

How has the project developed since the last report?

Activity increasing, commits and dev activity climbing.

  1. Added Kvrocks as a proposed graduated project. The vote has passed about one month ago just about the last Board meeting. cc Justin Mclean 

    1. One of your mentors should have fixed the podlings XML file to reflect that. I'll correct that for you.

    2. I don't find a discussion on the board about Kvrocks becoming TLP. I think you missed some steps
