Apache Turbine Project Board Report, May 2019


- Apache Turbine is a servlet based framework that allows experienced Java developers to quickly build web applications. Turbine allows you to personalize the web sites and to use user logins to restrict access to parts of your application.

- Turbine is a matured and well established framework that is used as the base of many other projects.


- No board-level issues at this time.


- Finalizing component upgrades/releases before Turbine 5.0 release and site updates
- Migrated MoinWiki to Confluence

Health report

- The Turbine project's quarter activity mainly referred to release / organizational / community collaboration issues in the dev mailing list  and ongoing code changes across many components on low/medium level.
- Turbine characterizes as a light-weight and robust, but not very easy  to use framework, especially for newcomers. Providing a ready-to-use
development environment is still highly desired and already in preparation. Yet, the upcoming main release and accompanying site updates will be of still higher demand.
