Sentry is a highly modular system for providing fine grained role
based authorization to both data and metadata stored on an Apache Hadoop
Sentry has been incubating since 2013-08-08.
Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
1. Add new PPMCs
Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be aware of?
Graduation discussions have started. There seems to be some disagreement on graduation readiness which led to a broad discussion on general@. Seems like most of it is resolved but still need mentors agreement. The Sentry community did a number of things since last report to address the concerns/suggestions around the open communication.
1. Community monthly hangout, IRC channel that's just been setup.
2. Community members presented Sentry at the ApacheCon
3. Sentry meetup at NY during HadoopWorld
How has the community developed since the last report?
We had ~260 messages on dev list in the past two months. (Got number from http://markmail.org/list/org.apache.sentry.dev)
How has the project developed since the last report?
About 71 issues were created and about 58 resolved in the past 2 months(Numbers from jira).
Date of last release:
