DataSketches

DataSketches is an open source, high-performance library of stochastic streaming algorithms commonly called "sketches" in the data sciences. Sketches are small, stateful programs that process massive data as a stream and can provide approximate answers, with mathematical guarantees, to computationally difficult queries orders-of-magnitude faster than traditional, exact methods.

DataSketches has been incubating since 2019-03-30.

Three most important unfinished issues to address before graduating:

  1. Adding more committers. We have just added our first new committer since incubation! We have a few more individuals that have been consistent contributors to the project that we will soon want to go through the new committer election process. This is a big change from our last report where we had no candidates at all.
  2. Fill out the Maturity Model
  3. Prepare for Graduation.

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

We could use some help in finding people who would find working in the sketching algorithms area really interesting and would want to work with us to become committers.

How has the community developed since the last report?

The word is getting out! We presented talks at the USPTO 2020 tech conference and the Spark & AI 2020 conference, mentioned in the last report, with lots of good feedback.

We will be co-authors in a tutorial on sketching technology at the upcoming ACM-KDD conference in August with one of the world's leading scientists in streaming algorithms and sketching.

We have been invited to give a keynote talk at the upcoming DataCon2020 in Taiwan in early September.

We have been accepted for a talk at ApacheCon again this year.

We also are seeing a big increase in the number of single PRs coming from a number of different people, especially for our C++ components, which is very good news. This proves that there is growing interest in the project and there are folks out there that want to contribute to the project.

How has the project developed since the last report?

See the releases since the last report below.

In addition we have made significant improvements to our website thanks to some external contributors!

To the best of our knowledge all of our licensing and website issues have been addressed and have been implemented in formal releases or are in master-branch staging, awaiting the next release.

  • 2020-05-07 incubating-datasketches-java 1.3.0

When were the last committers or PPMC members elected?

August, 2020

Have your mentors been helpful and responsive?

Yes, in general. However, we do have to prod them with reminders to check-off our releases. Our releases have been taking longer and longer to get through the voting process especially when it is in the 2nd IPMC phase. A little help here would be appreciated.

Is the PPMC managing the podling's brand / trademarks?

To the best of our knowledge, yes.

  • Are 3rd parties respecting and correctly using the podlings name and brand?

    As far as we know, yes.

  • If not what actions has the PPMC taken to correct this?

    We have not had to face this issue yet.

  • Has the VP, Brand approved the project name?

    Yes, and it is clearly stated as such on http://incubator.apache.org/projects/datasketches.html

PageSpeed

PageSpeed represents a series of open source technologies to help make the web faster by rewriting web pages to reduce latency and bandwidth.

PageSpeed has been incubating since 2017-09-30.

Three most important unfinished issues to address before graduating:

  1. Grow the number of active developers
  2. Enhance the release process: switch to github tagged release to simplify.

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

How has the community developed since the last report?

Mailing lists and git issues are active. The number of active developers is unchanged.

How has the project developed since the last report?

The first incubator release has been announced after field-testing. Furthermore, small enhancements are being contributed from people outside of the initial committer group. Major changes have landed on master: the build system has been refreshed to leverage bazel, c++17, abseil and Envoy. All dependencies have been refreshed and sanitized where possible. As a side-effect, some of the remaining issues from the WIP-DISCLAIMER have been addressed.

  • MPL licensed source code for http date parsing replaced with our own version which leans on abseil. That part is all Apache licensed now.
  • The no longer contains compiled code pulled in from dependencies.

A simple PoC port to Envoy has landed, as a first step towards running PageSpeed as a stand-alone sidecar service (where traffic of arbitrary servers can be routed through it via transparent proxying or L7 routing).

  • It's not known if the VP, brand has explicitly approved, so that is something we need to make sure about and resolve.

Toree

Toree provides applications with a mechanism to interactively and remotely access Apache Spark.

Toree has been incubating since 2015-12-02.

Three most important unfinished issues to address before graduating:

In my opinion, I believe Toree is one of those small but useful projects that, except for being very active, would be ready to graduate. Having said that, where there is an important issue or for voting new members and releases the PPMC show up and participate (see example of last committer/release thread).

I have started updating the podling related artifacts such as project page, etc and will try to start graduation discussions before the next report.

1.Increase active contributors 2. 3.

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

None

How has the community developed since the last report?

Similar pattern with a few Q&A on both Gitter and mailing list. We also saw increased flow of questions related to Spark 3.0.

How has the project developed since the last report?

The project has worked on the 0.4.0-incubating release, and is adding support for Spark 3.0 which will be available on the 0.5.0-incubating release.

How would you assess the podling's maturity?

Training

The Training project aims to develop resources which can be used for training purposes in various media formats, languages and for various Apache and non-Apache target projects.

Training has been incubating since 2019-02-21.

Three most important unfinished issues to address before graduating:

  1. Promote the information about Apache Training Project with increased participation from community
  2. Create a tutorial on how the tools provided by this project can be used to create own content
  3. Review current policies around contribution review and releases to find a pragmatic compromise

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

Due to recent changes in work being done remote has led to change of format for many conferences and trainings. The Training project can be very valuable in dissemination of knowledge in this situation. We hope to adapt to new format of learning in this situation.

How has the community developed since the last report?

Activity has increased since the last report. There were 71 posts in last 3 months. We have received contributions from other Apache projects like COMDEV and other individual contributors.

How has the project developed since the last report?

New training slides were added on three topics:

  • Apache Hadoop
  • Apache Hive
  • Apache COMDEV

PR activity has picked up momentum since the last report.

How would you assess the podling's maturity?

There are currently some issues with this podling that we are working to address, we believe that the issues are not yet critical and can be turned around from within the community but want to make the board aware of this early on.

Have your mentors been helpful and responsive?

Mentors have been responsive and helpful when reached out to.

Is the PPMC managing the podling's brand / trademarks?

The name search process has not yet been started, as there is still time to do that if and when graduation draws nearer. The PPMC is actively monitoring usage of the Podlings current name on other sites. The Podling is not directly affiliating with any sponsors donating content and presenting an independent image on the webpage.

IPMC/Shepherd notes:

Dave Fisher: I see no relevant email from the dev team on dev@ or private@ since March. There is activity on commits@ from git activity which means work is being done. I think that there should be discussion about the trademark issues on private@ along with a Podling Suitable Name Search.
