Sentry is a highly modular system for providing fine grained role based authorization to both data and metadata stored on an Apache Hadoop cluster.

Sentry has been incubating since 2013-08-08.

Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:

1. Grow the Sentry community
2. Add new committers that diversify the project
3. Continue to release at regular intervals

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be aware of?


How has the community developed since the last report?

The community is growing. A number of new members have started actively contributing to the project.

How has the project developed since the last report?

The project did its 2nd release from incubation. Thanks to lot of hard work from the release manage Karthik Ramchandran and other community members, version 1.3 was released earlier this month. The db backed policy store feature branch is merged into master. The community is working towards improving that functionality and stabilization.

Date of last release:


When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

Vamsee Yarlagadda has been added as a committer as announced on Feb 28, 2014. No new PPMC members have been added since the project has entered the incubator.
