Sentry

           Sentry is a highly modular system for providing fine grained role

based authorization to both data and metadata stored on an Apache Hadoop

cluster. 

Sentry has been incubating since 2013-08-08.

Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:

  1. Make project direction more visible
    1. Encourage more feature and direction discussions on the dev list rather than jira.
    2. Create a roadmap page on wiki, so that there is one place every one can see what is community working on or aspiring to work on.
  2. Continue reporting on time 
  3. Improve release schedules
  4. Increase diversity on the PMC

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be aware of?

  1. Community has released Sentry 1.5.1 after fixing the earlier release issues. Community has fixed all the issues raised except for the ongoing efforts mentioned in the previous section.
  2. Project is now doing monthly reporting

How has the community developed since the last report? 

  1. We had <> messages on dev list last month. (Got number from http://markmail.org/list/org.apache.sentry.dev)

How has the project developed since the last report? 

About <> issues were created and about <> resolved(Numbers from jira). 

Date of last release:

  2015-07-14

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

 Colin Ma, Dapeng Sun, Guoquan Shen and Xiaomeng Huang were added as committers on 12/24/2014. No new PPMC members have been added since the project has entered the incubator.
