The Apache Way Contribute ASF Sponsors

Formal board meeting minutes from 2010 through present. Please Note: The board typically approves minutes from one meeting during the next board meeting, so minutes will be published roughly one month later than the scheduled date. Other corporate records are published, as is an alternate categorized view of all board meeting minutes.

 2. Achieve active development cadence
 3. Improve project description and clarify purpose on the web site

aware of?

 Code contributions at Apache have not yet begun, although the community is
 coalescing.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 One (1) new contributor has expressed interest on the mailing list.

How has the project developed since the last report?

Annotator provides annotation enabling code for browsers, servers, and
humans.

Annotator has been incubating since 2016-08-30.

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

 1. Achieving active development cadence
 2. Attracting new contributors
 3. Establishing presence (web, repo, activity)

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

 Beginning work within the ASF has been slow (and rather
 confusing). Mailing list activity has improved, but still low
 volume. Development priorities are still being discussed. We do now
 have repositories for code and the website, but are blocked by needing
 access to them--the request as been made to the general@incubator
 list. However, we have successfully gotten Jira and Confluence setup
 for the project and have a promotional web page ready and waiting once
 access has been granted. Making the incubation process clearer (and
 ideally more automated) would have saved a lot of time and confusion.
 That said, our Champion (Daniel Gruno), has been most helpful in
 helping us navigate.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 Discussions have begun on development priorities. Infrastructure
 helped us resolve some outstanding project setup needs (Jira,
 Confluence, and git for the web site and code). Once the site is
 online, we intend to promote the community more and make concrete
 plans out of the proposals made on the mailing list so far.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 Same as above. Mostly discussion and infrastructure/access setup--some
 still in progress.

Date of last release:

 None.

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

 None since start of incubation.

Shepherd/Mentor notes:

Drew Farris (shepherd):

 One mentor active on mailing lists and another's assistance is referenced
 in the board report. Annotator is still getting off the ground. Observed
 recent mailing list activity seeking to set a path forward for the project.

The community has established support for incubation and initial committers
and mentors have been added to project email lists.

How has the project developed since the last report?

Project code identified in our Proposal remains under active development with
some components having achieved new version milestones in the last month.
