Report was filed, but display is awaiting the approval of the Board minutes.

Apache Amaterasu is a framework providing configuration management and
deployment for Big Data Pipelines.

It provides the following capabilities:
Continuous integration tools to package pipelines and run tests.
A repository to store those packaged applications: the applications
repository.
A repository to store the pipelines, and engine configuration (for
instance, the location of the Spark master, etc.): per environment - the
configuration repository.
A dashboard to monitor the pipelines.
A DSL and integration hooks allowing third parties to easily integrate.

Amaterasu has been incubating since 2017-09.

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

 1. Grow up user and contributor communities
 2. Prepare documentation

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

 There is still concern regarding the progress of the project, a
 discussion was re-initiated by one of the mentors recently and is currently
 ongoing.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 One new contributor have contributed code that have been merged. In
 addition, we are actively looking for more use cases and organizations to
 use Amaterasu.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 * 4 pull requests have been opened since the last report and 4 have been
 merged
 * Since last report 9 more issues have been created and 4 out of them
 have been assigned

Date of the last release:

 12 July 2018

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

Have your mentors been helpful and responsive or are things falling through

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

 A concern was raised by a mentor that the community is too small and not
 active enough and that Amaterasu should consider retiring. We did a roll
 call, and identified a total of 5 individuals willing to contribute as
 volunteers.
 We'll keep tracking the activity and reassess whether to retire within a
 few months.

    Comments: Activity has picked up recently, and the first release is
coming. That said, I think the community is not developing fast enough to
suggest a good fit for the Foundation. I have general concerns whether the
project can graduate and how quickly.
