jclouds continues to accumulate bug fixes but little feature work.  Notably we are struggling with Java 8/newer Guava compatibility which vexes our users.  We continue to work with the Karaf community on one of these issues.  This blocks release of jclouds 2.2.0.

We have migrated the repos our source repositories to Gitbox, and will be deprecating and archiving the legacy jcloud jclouds GitHub org in such a way that allows as to allow contributors to move without painmigrate easily.

We've also migrated moved our CI infrastructure from CloudBees DEV@cloud to the ASF Jenkins and installation. One consequence of that is that we have been able to make results of our live test builds tests public, which will be valuable to the community.


Outside the existing PMC and committers, we had 12 contributors this quarter , (including several new ones, ) and more activity on our issue tracker. Notably, one potential contributor sent a pull request for a new Aliyun OSS provider, but this will require significant rework to merge. It is important to note that this kind these kinds of huge large pull requests are difficult to review, and it may take more time than desired to review guide and educate the contributors, since most of the PMC and Committers committers are now on a "pure" volunteer status volunteers (their with $dayjob is no longer related to jclouds).


== Community Objectives ==

  • Release Unblock the release of jclouds 2.2.0 with , which will provide Java 8 support.
  • Keep engaging the slack contributors on Slack, and propose them as new committers as appropriate.
  • Monitor the PMC and ensure we have enough resources to properly manage the project.
