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. Add new PPMCs

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

  1. Graduation discussions have started. There seems to be some disagreement on graduation readiness which led to a broad discussion on general@. Seems like most of it is resolved but still need mentors agreement.

How has the community developed since the last report? 

We had ~260 messages on dev list in the past two months. (Got number from http://markmail.org/list/org.apache.sentry.dev)
