*HornetQ IP clearance has been completed 100%
**HornetQ code base migrated to ActiveMQ Artemis
***Eliminated all HornetQ references
***The code base is now 100% an ActiveMQ project
*Discussion around development methodology differences between the 5.x code
 base and the ActiveMQ Artemis
**Garnered fairly active participation from many committers
**It did result in a good description of the commit then review process that
  was agreed upon on the mailing list which was then documented at
  http://s.apache.org/zD7
**There were also good discussions around code formatting setups to make
  working on the various codebases within ActiveMQ more consistent and easier to
  pull ideas and code back and forth
*ActiveMQ Artemis code base is now receiving contributions from a wider scope
 of people (beyond just the original HornetQ contributors)
**Long standing committers from the 5.x project are starting to contribute to
  ActiveMQ Artemis
*Active collaboration between 5.x development and ActiveMQ Artemis development
 is now taking place
**ActiveMQ 5.x features actively being migrated to Artemis
***Test framework from 5.x migrated ActiveMQ Artemis
***Migration of the MQTT protocol from 5.x to ActiveMQ Artemis
**Also discussion is taking place to improve the the 5.x code base with regard
  multi-protocol detection on a single socket based on ideas from Artemis and
  Apollo
*PMC is actively working toward diversifying the community by inviting more
 committers to the project
**Christopher Shannon was added this month
**Three others added since May 2015
*Artemis 1.0 was successfully released
**Work is on-going for the 1.0.1 release
*Back in the April report, one PMC member voiced the following concern:
*"At least one member of the PMC, as well as several members of the community,
 feels strongly that disagreements and concerns are not getting addressed in a
 manner that will move the community toward consensus."
**While this comment is true, the community member who was raising these
  concerns has gone silent
* Initiated discussion to address past issues from some community members as
  instructed by the board
** Result so far is zero replies

There seem to be some issues in the PMC but not a lot of specifics have been surfaced. Hadrian Z, who had some issues with governance, has resigned from the PMC. Bruce Snyder is trying to get more details on the issues. The situation appears to be improving.

server. Apache ActiveMQ is fast, supports many Cross Language Clients
and Protocols, comes with easy to use Enterprise Integration Patterns
and many advanced features while fully supporting JMS 1.1 and J2EE
1.4.

Community:
* The development and user lists continue to stay active.
* Several ActiveMQ based presentation were given at Apachecon NA.
* The ActiveMQ community has voted to name the HortnetQ code donation
ActiveMQ Artemis.
* Apache board members requested a special report to address what the
plan is of the hornetq code donation.  There were some specific
question what were directed at the PMC:

 Q. Red Hat has a product, called HornetQ, which includes a website;
      branding, etc.  http://hornetq.jboss.org/

 A. ActiveMQ PMC does not intend to use the HornetQ branding in any code,
     docs or website. The code donation has been updated to remove such
     references. The HornetQ open source project is now considered a legacy
     project and the code is no longer maintained as the open source project
     HornetQ. The ActiveMQ community is beginning to work together to
     develop a plan to take the donated code base forward and to develop
     community around this code base.

 Q. The ActiveMQ PMC needs to deliver a plan for:
 A.  Apache ActiveMQ has multiple products with multiple versions:
          a.  ActiveMQ - (version 5.x.x)
          b.  ActiveMQ Artemis - (version 1.x.x)

        This means that we are not yet ready to declare that
        ActiveMQ Artemis is the successor to ActiveMQ 5.x.  We will wait until
        the product matures to make that decision.

 Q. The current chair has been the chair for *many* years and based on the
      current status and issues in the community, I would strongly
      suggest having a plan for potentially replacing the chair of the project.

 A. The PMC agrees.

* The PMC has voted to give the code donation a code name so that it
is not referred to as HornetQ anymore within ActiveMQ.
* IP clearance for the code donation is almost complete:
http://incubator.apache.org/ip-clearance/hornetq.html
* At least one member of the PMC, as well as several members of the
community, feels strongly that disagreements and concerns are not
getting addressed.  They would rather have Artemis go through the
incubator.
* PMC is in discussions looking for ways to increase community diversity
* PMC has voted to appoint Bruce Snyder as the ActiveMQ PMC chair.
The PMC requests that the board approve the the following resolution:

----------------------------------------------------------

WHEREAS, the Board of Directors heretofore appointed Hiram Chirino to
the office of Vice President, Apache ActiveMQ, and

WHEREAS, the Board of Directors is in receipt of the resignation
of Hiram Chirino from the office of Vice President, Apache
ActiveMQ, and

WHEREAS, the Project Management Committee of the Apache ActiveMQ
project has chosen by vote to recommend Bruce Snyder as the Successor
to the post;

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that Hiram Chirino is
relieved and discharged from the duties and responsibilities of
the office of Vice President, Apache ActiveMQ, and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that Bruce Snyder be and hereby
is appointed to the office of Vice President, Apache ActiveMQ, to
serve in accordance with and subject to the direction of the
Board of Directors and the Bylaws of the Foundation until
death, resignation, retirement, removal or disqualification, or
until a successor is appointed.

Change the Apache ActiveMQ Project Chair

 WHEREAS, the Board of Directors heretofore appointed Brian McCallister
 to the office of Vice President, Apache ActiveMQ, and

 WHEREAS, the Board of Directors is in receipt of the resignation
 of Brian McCallister from the office of Vice President, Apache ActiveMQ;

 NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that Brian McCallister is relieved
 and discharged from the duties and responsibilities of the office
 of Vice President, Apache ActiveMQ, and

 BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that Hiram Chirino be and hereby is
 appointed to the office of Vice President, Apache ActiveMQ, to serve
 in accordance with and subject to the direction of the Board of
 Directors and the Bylaws of the Foundation until death,
 resignation, retirement, removal or disqualification, or until a
 successor is appointed.

 Special order 7C, Change the Apache ActiveMQ Project Chair, was
 approved by Unanimous Vote.

18 Jul 2007 [Brian McCallister / Will]

No report. August reminder sent.

16 May 2007 [Brian McCallister / Greg]

ActiveMQ has made two releases in the past month:

* The ActiveMQ C++ Client (ActiveMQ CPP) has released version 2.0.1,
a bugfix release.

* The ActiveMQ CMS API 1.0 has been released. CMS is an
implementation-independent API for messaging for C++, analogous to
JMS for Java. The ActiveMQ CPP client implements this API for ActiveMQ.

In addition to these releases, the Camel component, used for routing
messages, has been moved out of the primary ActiveMQ server code tree
into its own sub-project as it looks like it will have a release
cycle independent of the the ActiveMQ server.

The user and development lists remain very active, and things are
going well.

Approved by General Consent.

25 Apr 2007 [Brian McCallister / Henri]

ActiveMQ has had an active month: voting in a new committer, John
Heitmann, and making two releases, ActiveMQ 4.1.1 - a bug fix release
of the Java server and clients, and the  ActiveMQ CPP Client 2.0.0 -
a major release of the C++ client.

A new component, Camel, has been initiated. Camel is a routing and
mediation engine which allows for describing message routing rules
for ActiveMQ, CXF, ServiceMix, and MINA.

The developer and user communities remain very active.

On a side note, a company, LogicBlaze, employing about a third of the
ActiveMQ committers has been acquired by IONA. It is not expected
that this will impact ActiveMQ directly, but as it affects a
significant percentage of the contributors, bears mentioning.

Approved by General Consent.

28 Mar 2007 [Brian McCallister / Cliff]

In the last month ActiveMQ has prepared a bugfix release candidate
for version 4.1.1. This release will primarily backport a number of
fixes from trunk. We hope to complete a vote on the release shortly.

There has been some discussion about creating separate areas in the
site for the various non-Java clients. This would be something like
sub-projects, but not really as the mailing lists and resources are
still all shared. How to proceed with this has not yet been determined.

Hiram Chirino completed a very nice site redesign, which has been
deployed.

Approved by General Consent.

21 Feb 2007 [Brian McCallister / Dirk]

* Apache ActiveMQ graduated from the Incubator to a top level project
in January.

* The website, mailing lists, and subversion have all been moved to
their new homes. Thank you very much to Joe Schaefer and Henri
Yandell for their help with movig resources around!

* We released version 1.1 of the ActiveMQ C++ client (ActiveMQ-CPP)
in February. This release included API improvements and several
important bugfixes.

* We moved the ActiveMQ wiki onto ASF infrastructure.

* Both the user and developer community continue to be very active.

25 Oct 2006

The ActiveMQ community continues to grow as evidenced by the mailing
list volumes. Each month mailing list volumes continues to grow. Last
month we had 574 emails sent to the developer list and 905 email sent
to the user list! We have also seen a big increase in the amount of
patches and contributions submitted from non ActiveMQ committers.

A large amount of development work and community interest has been
around the Native clients used to access the Messaging broker. Tim
Bish's excellent work on the STOMP c++ client has earned him an
invitation to become an ActiveMQ committer. Amazon did a in house c++
client to ActiveMQ and that source code donation was accepted and
committed to the source tree.

All the source headers in the 2 active branches have be update to
comply with the new policies outline at:
http://www.apache.org/legal/src-headers.html.

The Apache ActiveMQ 4.0.1 has successfully been released. For more
information about the release, see:
http://incubator.apache.org/activemq/activemq-401-release.html
Development continues on the next 4.1 release. In tandem, the 4.0
branch has continued to stabilize and a 4.0.2 release should be ready
shortly.

The project has discussed graduating and feels that ActiveMQ is ready
and would prefer to become a TLP. Once the 4.0.2 release is completed
expect more serious discussions regarding graduation to pop up on the
incubator mailing lists.

15 Mar 2006

We have successfully released the 4.0-M4 milestone release of ActiveMQ and
are actively seeking feedback on if ActiveMQ can leave the incubator.

18 Jan 2006

The full status of incubation is at
http://wiki.apache.org/geronimo/ActiveMQ_Incubation. In summary we're most
of the way through incubation now, things have been progressing very well;
the code is clean and using only Apache-compliant libraries, it has the
correct copyright notices and is in the org.apache.activemq namespace and is
generally working well now. We've got the software grants sorted and most
developers have their CLAs on file and accounts created (we've a few more to
do once we know the CLAs are on file).

We've voted on a milestone release which should go out soon once we've
figured out the practicalities of doing an incuabtor milestone release. Our
main outstanding issue now is creating the full website at Apache - which
should be done in the next week or two - for now there is a simple home
page.
