Board meeting on 16 Jan 2019; report to be submitted by 9 Jan
A cloud agnostic library that enables developers to access a variety of cloud providers using one API.
== Project Status ==
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 our source repositories to Gitbox, and will be deprecating and archiving the legacy jclouds GitHub org in such a way as to allow contributors to migrate easily.
We've also moved our CI infrastructure from CloudBees DEV@cloud to the ASF Jenkins installation. One consequence of that is that we have been able to results of our live tests public, which will be valuable to the community.
== 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 these kinds of large pull requests are difficult to review, and it may take more time than desired to guide and educate the contributors, since most of the PMC and committers are now "pure" volunteers (with $dayjob no longer related to jclouds).

== Community Objectives ==
- Unblock the release of jclouds 2.2.0, which will provide Java 8 support.
- Keep engaging 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.
== Releases ==
The last jclouds release, 2.1.1, took place on 2018-08-16.
