Incubator PMC report for November 2020

The Apache Incubator is the entry path into the ASF for projects and codebases wishing to become part of the Foundation's efforts.

There are presently 46 podlings incubating. In October, podlings executed 8 distinct releases. We added 3 IPMC members and none retired. There was one IP clearance in September. We have one new project Hop, and no projects graduated last month. Superset was up for graduation last month, but it was submitted just before the board meeting, and there wasn't time to review it.

This month we were missing reports from Annotator, BlueMarlin, Livy, S2Graph, Toree and Warble. Livy, S2Graph, and Warble failed to report last month and Annotator didn't get sign off from its mentors.

BlueMarlin has bootstrapped after a long delay, but still didn't report. A role call for S2Graph got no response and the IPMC will consider retiring the project. SDAP and Weex reported after missing several reports. Weex is considering retirement and Warble will be retired.

A new proposal Alita-validator is being discussed.

Progress on MXNet issues is still slow, with most problems being on hold waiting for NVIDIA or legal JIRA's to be resolved. More branding and trademark issues have been found, and their latest release didn't pass an IPMC vote, and a new release is currently up for a vote. They needed a lot of help with branding issues for an upcoming conference and were late in asking for help. NVIDIA has changed their licensing terms, but the terms are still incompatible with the Apache license. It's likely that the legal JIRA will be resolved as Category X and that will mean that the project will need to remove some of it own non-compliant releases from Apache infrastructure and ask 3rd parties to rename releases. The IPMC has had further discussions on what to do about the project.

There was a discussion on what criteria should be used to remove a podling from the IPMC.

Some minor changes were made to the distribution guidelines based on feedback from various people.

We had a slightly odd request from an ASF sponsor about IP governance, which seems to have been satisfactorily resolved.

Most discussions on the mailing list were around releases and graduations. There were graduation discussions around ECharts, Flagon, Superset and TVM.

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 added one last quarter and we have a few more individuals that we have been considering.
  2. We have created a draft Maturity model, which is undergoing review.
  3. Prepare for Graduation. We have a Graduation checklist that we are going through

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

No.

How has the community developed since the last report?

Public presentations since last report:

  • ACM-KDD conference in August.
  • DataCon2020 in Taiwan in September.
  • ApacheCon 2020 in September.

We are seeing increased interest from scientific communities that work with big data and platforms that want to use our code (e.g. Apache Impala).

How has the project developed since the last report?

We released a new minor release of C++: 2.1.0.

Based on feedback from our community, we are developing a Docker deployable version of our library, which hopefully will be released soon.

We are working on a brand new sketch as part of the Quantiles family.

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.

We are continuing to respond to new user's requests for help.

Have your mentors been helpful and responsive?

Generally our mentors have been very helpful. However, a little more help from our mentors on timely approval of our releases would be appreciated. Our last release took 18 days to get 3 IPMC members to vote. We don't know what is typical, but this seems a bit long. Please advise.

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.

  3. Improve/create user guide documentation

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?

Thomas Huang delivered a (virtual) keynote address at the 2020 ApacheCon @Home on 9/29 and discussed our creation of the Apache Science Data Analytics Platform (SDAP) as a professional open source Analytics Center Framework (ACF) and its growing list of NASA and international applications.

The COVERAGE (CEOS Ocean Variables Enabling Research and Applications for GEO, https://coverage.ceos.org/technology/#software) development team at JPL completed an initial deployment of SDAP on European cloud platform, WEkEO (https://wekeo.eu/). Paired with a previously deployed SDAP on Amazon Web Services (AWS), an objective of COVERAGE is to enable joint analytics leveraging geographically distributed SDAP installations that host distinct yet compatible American and European satellite-based and in situ ocean-related datasets.

Additional deployments of SDAP that are currently being maintained:

How has the project developed since the last report?

Three new features:

  • SDAP-292 Add Cassandra authentication support to delete_by_query.py script
  • SDAP-278 Cassandra authentication for webapp
  • SDAP-258 Update Deseason Algorithm to Use Precomputed Climatologies

Two improvements:

  • SDAP-284 Collection Manager to support recursive directory structures
  • SDAP-285 Solr not indexing lat/lon

Eight bug fixes:

  • SDAP-282 Support configuring dimension names and projection during ingestion
  • SDAP-291 netcdf parsing error with GMPE dataset in Granule Ingester
  • SDAP-280 Collection Manager should not block when checking ingestion history

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?

The Training Project has opened up the commit permissions to all the committers of Apache project to make is easy for experts in each area contribute to Apache Training presentations. This was announced in the last week of September 2020. This will open up the project for contributions from other Apache projects.

How has the community developed since the last report?

Activity has increased since the last report. There were 144 posts in last 3 months. We have received queries for contributions from individual contributors.

How has the project developed since the last report?

New training slides were added on three topics:

  • Apache Pulsar
  • Apache Samza
  • Apache Flink

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.

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.
