Board Report, Oltu PMC
Oltu PMC Chair: Antonio Sanso (email@example.com)
Date: July 2017
Oltu is a project to develop a Java library which provides an API specification for, and an unconditionally compliant implementation of the OAuth v2.0 specifications.
OAuth is a mechanism that allows users to authenticate and authorize access by another party to resources they control while avoiding the need to share their username and password credentials.
Apache Oltu 1.0 was released on March 3rd 2014.
Release Apache Oltu Auth2 JWT 1.0.3 on 13/02/2017
The activity of the project is really really low. One of the reason is also due the fact OAuth is a protocol that is pretty stable. The other reason is that the team members that are active are busy/demotivated.
Said that lately we had an issue with the Jenkins build that have been sorted out after few days. We release last module in February 2017.
In the last report in February some problem has been highlighted:
The last few months it has been awfully quiet (this might also be due the fact the OAuth spec is stable). But not only, since we have some patches laying around for a while
The release has not been finished. It seems some of the artifacts are not synched correctly in https://www.apache.org/dist/oltu
The builds keep failing
As far as I know 2. and 3. are resolved now. But 1. still persists.
I proposed to bring new blood in the PMC by rotating the Chair position but no one seemed to be interested.
Last new addition tot the team are 2 PMC members: Stein Welberg and Jasha Joachimsthal in June 2016 (13/06/2016)
There are no issues requiring board attention at this time.
