Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation: 1. Continue to grow the Sentry community 2. Initiate graduation discussion with community and address any potential concerns raised 3. Update project status page, website etc Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be aware of? None How has the community developed since the last report? Several new members have started actively contributing to the project. In recognition to their great contribution, four contributors were added as committers in the project. Bay Area user group meetup was organised on 20th Jan and was well attended. How has the project developed since the last report? A number of new features implemented since the last report. Community is actively working on extending Apache Sentry framework integration with other Apache projects like Apache Hadoop and Apache Sqoop. The sentry community is making progress towards removing some of the non Apache dependencies in order to avoid any potential concerns for the graduation processes.
