Any23

15 Mar 2017 [Lewis John McGibbney / Isabel]

## Description:

Anything To Triples (Any23) is a library, a web service and a
command line tool that extracts structured data in RDF format from a variety
of Web documents.

## Issues:

There are no issues requiring board attention at this time.

## Activity:

Activity has been good. Any23 has seen quite a bit of activity recently with
new community members VOTE'ing on the very recent 2.0 release.

## Health report:

Existing commitership and PMC is pretty quiet however there is certainly a
healthy interested in the Any23 project. The 2.0 release was announced
extensively through relevant project communication channels e.g.  W3C,
DBPedia, WebDataCommons, etc.

## PMC changes:

- Currently 14 PMC members.
- No new PMC members added in the last 3 months
- Last PMC addition was William L. Anderson on Sun Aug 28 2016

## Committer base changes:

- Currently 14 committers.
- No new committers added in the last 3 months
- Last committer addition was Bill Anderson at Tue Aug 30 2016

## Releases:

- 2.0 was released on Thu Feb 16 2017

## Mailing list activity:

Due to a slight increase in development prior to the 2.0 release, dev@ has
been busy. user@ remains pretty quiet with mostly announcements threads.

- dev@any23.apache.org:
- 35 subscribers (up 0 in the last 3 months):
- 178 emails sent to list (47 in previous quarter)

- user@any23.apache.org:
- 51 subscribers (up 0 in the last 3 months):
- 14 emails sent to list (2 in previous quarter)

## JIRA activity:

## Description:
Apache Any23 is a library, a web service and a command line tool that extracts
structured data in RDF format from a variety of Web documents.

## Issues:
there are no issues requiring board attention at this time

## Activity:
Any23 is very quiet. Very very quiet. We have brought on one new PMC
member based upon a documentation contribution which is great. However
Any23 remains (as is always has) very quiet.

## Health report:
The health report reflects the above activity. We are actually waiting on
a critical dependency release which will enable us to stabalize out test
suite and push for a 1.2. release. Any23 is very quiet as always.

## PMC changes:

 - Currently 14 PMC members.
 - No new PMC members added in the last 3 months
 - Last PMC addition was William L. Anderson on Sun Aug 28 2016

## Committer base changes:

 - Currently 14 committers.
 - No new committers added in the last 3 months
 - Last committer addition was Bill Anderson at Tue Aug 30 2016

## Releases:

 - Last release was 1.1 on Mon Oct 27 2014

## Mailing list activity:

It would appear that without any release coming out of Any23 our
community is not growinf much... if anything it is possibly stagnating
and even diminishing. As PMC Chair I am optimistic that if we can
stabalize tests and release, then this outcome will change as we
typically announce out releases to the W3C and other Web-based forums.

documents.

## Issues:

There are no issues requiring board attention at this time.

## Activity:

Activity is pretty slow. Any23 would really benefit from a release.
We have a blocking issue which needs to be addressed
cf. https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ANY23-280

## Health report:

Any23 remains a quiet community. We are however growing the community
with recent additions to our PMC. The general project health is good,
with activity remaining low.

## PMC changes:

 - Currently 14 PMC members.
 - William L. Anderson was added to the PMC on Sun Aug 28 2016

## Committer base changes:

 - Currently 14 committers.
 - Bill Anderson was added as a committer on Tue Aug 30 2016

## Releases:

 - Last release was 1.1 on Mon Oct 27 2014

## Mailing list activity:

The figures below echo the sentiment above... we are quiet and working
towards our 1.2 release.

# Description:
Anything To Triples (Any23) is a library, a web service and a command
line tool that extracts structured data in RDF format from a variety
of Web documents.

## Issues:
There are no issues requiring board attention at this time

## Activity:
Unfortunately the proposed GSoC project did not go ahead.
Lessons have been learned from the application period and
next year we will better engage with target communities.
Activity has been pretty low as usual with at least one
blocking issue which needs t be addressed before we can make
our next release.

## Health report:
Any23 continues to be a quiet but useful project for its user base.
The main issue which will increase project health is for us to make
a 1.2 release. We also need to grow the community and hopefully
add a new committer or PMC member.

## PMC changes:

 - Currently 13 PMC members.
 - No new PMC members added in the last 3 months
 - Last PMC addition was Stephane Corlosquet on Sun Sep 07 2014

## Committer base changes:

## Mailing list activity:

Both dev@ and user@ have increased which is excellent.

## Description:
Anything To Triples (Any23) is a library, a web service and a command
line tool that extracts structured data in RDF format from a variety
of Web documents.

## Issues:
The community continues to remian quiet with few bugs logged and few fixed.

## Activity:
We have had a handful of users registering bugs some of which have been
fixed but some remain open. The project really needs to move towards another
release to keep some momentum going. We are planning on another GSoC project
this year so fingers crossed that this works out.

## Health report:
Any23 is a very quiet project. The mailing lists are typically very quiet.
The project is still alive as PMC and Committers use the Jira instance
to discuss fixing bugs and improving issues. There is no hiding the fact
however that the community is not really growing much at all.

## PMC changes:

 - Currently 13 PMC members.
 - No new PMC members added in the last 3 months

## Mailing list activity:

On a positive note, we have more people subscribed to both
user@ and dev@. We would like to see more contributions
however.

   Description:
   Anything To Triples (Any23) is a library, a web service and a command
   line tool that extracts structured data in RDF format from a variety of Web
   documents.

Issues:
 - There are no issues requiring board attention at this time

Activity:
 - Any23 activity for the quarter has been typically slow. The community
   has not really been able to ride off of a successful GSoC project however
   we are currently disucssing the release of the 1.2 codebase as 12 issues
   have been fixed since 1.1.

Health report:
 - Any23 is a small community with out primary consumers being communties
  outside of TheASF. To this end we aim to keep our parsing and extraction
  implementations up-to-date with Standards... we are doing well on this front.
  Mailing lists are always quiet so it is clear that we are not doing a great
  job at growing community.

PMC changes:

 - Currently 13 PMC members.
 - No new PMC members added in the last 3 months

## Description:
   Anything To Triples (Any23) is a library, a web service and a command
   line tool that extracts structured data in RDF format from a variety of Web
   documents.

## Activity:
 - Project activity has primarily revolved around the GSoC project which
   involved implementation of Microformats2 within Any23. We are very close to
   merging this work into Any23 master branch. We will nearly be ready for a
   1.2 release once this has been committed.

## Health report:
 - Any23 is a small and reasonably quiet community. We would hope that our
   GSoC student will continue to contribute to the project but will also be
   reaching out to the Microformats community again very soon to introduce the
   availability of Microformats2 support within Any23. Mailing list activity
   is typical for Any23.

## Issues:
 - There are no issues requiring board attention at this time.

## LDAP committee group/Committership changes:

 - Currently 13 committers and 13 LDAP committee group members.

## Description:
   Anything To Triples (Any23) is a library, a web service and a command
   line tool that extracts structured data in RDF format from a variety of Web
   documents.

## Activity:
   Progress has been slow and typical of Any23 generally. We have one Google
   Summer of Code project currently ongoing with Nisala Mendis as student
   and Lewis John McGibbney and Micehele Mostarda as co mentors. This is
   Any23's first GSoC effort and is going well so far.

## Issues:
   There are no issues requiring board attention at this time
   however we are aware that Any23 community is not growing much.
   Hopefully GSoC will provide an opportunity for us to further engage
   and recruit more PMC members.

 - Activity has been low as usual. A handful of issues have been addressed
   since last reporting period. The most exciting activity is the creation of
   https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ANY23-249
   The issue is marked as a GSoC 2015 summer project and we are really looking

Anything To Triples (Any23) is a library, a web service and a command line
tool that extracts structured data in RDF format from a variety of Web
documents.

Project Releases

The last release of Any23 (1.1) was on 16-Oct-2014.

Overall Project Activity since last report

Project activity has been reasonably slow however this is nothing new
for Any23 generally.
Work is nearly complete on the Any23 plugin for Apache Nutch trunk codebase
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/NUTCH-1129
Additionally Any23 has featured in a number of recent presentations at
NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory where the software is being evaluated
for use within the Systems Engineering domain.

How has the community developed since the last report?

Since the Any23 1.0 release the release management process has included
emailing the announcement to a number of very active W3C lists. The
intention here is to interest other developers and build the Any23 community
further. This strategy is gathering traction, usually with activity immediately
after the last two Any23 releases.
http://any23.apache.org/release-howto.html#Announce_the_Release
Any23 received contributions in the form of the donation of both
any23.org and any23.com domain names. We thank Richard Cyganiak for the
contributions and also Infra for accepting them.

Project Releases

The last release of Any23 (1.0) was on 13-May-2014.

Overall Project Activity since last report

Project activity has been reasonably slow however this is nothing new
for Any23 generally.
Any23 is being used within the Eurosentiment [0] project for extracting
structured reviews from websites. These review are then used to build
topical lexicon on a website-by-website domain-by-domain basis.

There is currently a thread out discussing if a project release should
take place.

How has the community developed since the last report?

Lewis John McGibbney is actively pushing for Any23 to become a well
recognised software component within the W3C Data on the Web Best Practices
Working Group. Since then our new PMC member Stephane has also been active.
It is our underatanding that Any23 will not be represented at ApacheCon EU.

Project Releases

The last release of Any23 (1.0) was on 13-May-2014. This was a major release
for the project and marks a new direction for the community.

Overall Project Activity since last report

We are pursuing the initiative to build a Any23-based Firefox extension which
we intend to submit to Mozilla for review once finished. It should be noted
that we have made recently made progress by engaging with several W3C
communities related to Semantic Web initiatives as well as Open Data. The
Any23 service located at any23-vm.apache.org (which exposes the Any23 REST
API) has been actively evaluated against the test suite residing at
http://rdfa.info/test-suite/ and the results openly discussed
on a number of mailing lists. It turns our that based on the
improvements made to Any23 during the 1.0 development drive
we are running at 99.2% compliance, which is pretty awesome.

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

How has the community developed since the last report?

We accepted and merged a Github pull request from a contributor who has not
featured on the mailing lists before. Lewis John McGibbney is exploring the
possibility of engaging individuals within NASA JPL and W3C Data on the Web
Best Practice WG in Any23. These are
early initiatives.

Project Releases

The last release of Any23 (0.9.0) was on 3rd November 2013.

Overall Project Activity since last report

Project activity has been very quiet again. There has been one
proposed fix for a new RDFa compliant parser and some community
members have been trying this out very recently.
Some other issues have been fixed and the process of proposing parts
of the codebase to the Apache Tika community is the main focus.
One issue which is currently being worked on (and nearly complete)
is to migrate the 'mime' module over to Apache Tika. Please see
the below Jira ticket.
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-1208.
Due to interest/committer resources from within Any23 progress
on this issue is slower than preferred HOWEVER it is NOT dead
in the water.

Project Releases

The last release of Any23 (0.9.0) was on 3rd November 2013.

Overall Project Activity since last report

Project activity has been very quiet indeed. No issues have been fixed
and the community has just initiated the process of proposing parts
of the codebase which will be of value to the Apache Tika community.
A parent issue [0] has been created and a draft proposal attached,
the aim of which is to act as a working document as the migration
gathers momentum. Additionally the initial aspect of the Any23
codebase, which we intend to imgrate, has been identified and an
issue opened on the Tika Jira. We will monitor progress and work
with the Tika PMC to propose patches.

Project Releases

The last release of Any23 (0.9.0) was on 3rd November 2013.

Overall Project Activity since last report

Project activity has actually picked up since last month.
We were able to engage more members of the community in
VOTE'ing for the 0.9.0 release candidate which subsequently
enabled us to make the release.
We have had positive feedback from both within the Any23 community
and over on dev@tika for possibly branching Tika and gradually merging
in the aspects of the Any23 codebase from which Tika could benefit.

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

Chris Mattmann was added back to the PMC on Wed, 15th May 2013.

How has the community developed since the last report?

We have had some users on the list but lists are far from busy.
We remain positive that the 0.9.0 release and the initiative to
take Any23 over to Tika will help to reinvigorate the project
for the benefit of a wider audience.

Changes to PMC & Committers

Nothing to report.

PMC and Committer diversity

We currently have committers from a wide variety of Apache projects
including, Nutch, Tika, OODT, Gora, Jena and Maven
(this is not an exhaustive list).

16 Oct 2013 [Michele Mostarda / Bertrand]

Having missed last months report, this months report is rather
peculiar in the sense that we are at crossroad within the very few
(active) members of the community as to where to take the project.


Progress has been very very slow. There have been a couple of new
users of the software but the community, for all intent and means,
has been unable to help them on mailing list. It is therefore sad
that new users questions have gone virtually unanswered...  which
is a real pity.


This email I suppose serves to act as a direct line of communicating
the current community position within Apache Any23. This is not the
first time that the attic has been mentioned.

It is also important to say that we intend to approach the Apache
Tika community in an attempt to invoke motivation behind merging
some/all of the Any23 codebase into Apache Tika as there are numerous
areas which one could define as being of common interest to both
projects. I am kicking off this discussion on dev@tika.a.o
<mailto:dev@tika.a.o> after I close this thread.


If a formal report in the usual structure is required then I will
be more than happy to post it here, however in all honesty there
is literally zilch to report.

AI: Chris: follow up on future of the project

18 Sep 2013 [Michele Mostarda / Jim]

No report was submitted.

19 Jun 2013 [Michele Mostarda / Shane]

Anything the board should be aware of?
---------------------------------------
There is a concern that the Any23 community isn't really actively
participating in Apache. Lewis John McGibbney brought this to ComDev,
and since then a few actions have been taken including pushing towards
an RC for 0.8.0, and some discussions that included adding the former
Champion of the project (Chris Mattmann) back to the PMC at his request.
We should monitor progress here and hopefully we can get the project going
forward here at the ASF. All should feel welcome to chime in.

Releases / Development
----------------------
Lewis John McGibbney and Andy Seaborne and others are prepping for an
0.8.0.

Project Releases

The Any23 team was happy to announce the first release of Any23
0.7.0-incubating around September 2012.  No releases have been made since.

Overall Project Activity since last report

Since January reporting, community traffic has remained relatively low both on the
user and dev lists. The community decided to move the source
code repository to Git as this was seen to be more convenient
for the committer base. We are currently in that transition,
and plan to release Any23 0.8.0 shortly afterwards this job is complete.

How has the community developed since the last report?

Mood reflects the previous admission that the Any23 community could
benefit from more traffic. For the time being the 0.8.0 release is
top of the agenda. It is also hoped that the move to Git will
attract more Any23 users to the codebase.

Anything To Triples (Any23) is a library, a web service and a command
line tool that extracts structured data in RDF format from a variety
of Web documents.

Project Releases

The Any23 team was happy to announce the first release of Any23
0.7.0-incubating around September 2012.  Since then Simone Tripodi
developed documentation which now means release candidates (and
subsequent releases) can be made by any Any23 committer in an
efficient and streamlined manner.

Overall Project Activity since last report

The last Any23 board report was in produced at the end of July 2012.
Since then community traffic has remained relatively low both on the
user and dev lists. The Any23 code base has however witnessed a
significant restructuring effort in an attempt to create a more modular
(OSGi-inspired) code base. Currently there are no immediate efforts
aimed towards the next release.

How has the community developed since the last report?

Once in a while the community receives traffic from new Any23 users,
one such example is a newly improved RDFa compliant parser proposal
which has been logged and is being tracked through Jira. It is
recognized that the community could benefit from more traffic. One
method for building out the community would be better collaboration
with developers behind the OpenRDF community. Peter Ansell (one of our
PMC members) is a committer on the OpenRDF Sesame project so we look
forward to increased collaboration in an attempt to build out the
Any23 community.

Changes to PMC & Committers

Since adding Peter Ansell, there have been no new additions to the PMC.

Anything To Triples (any23) is a library, a web service and a command line
tool that extracts structured data in RDF format from a variety of Web
documents.

Any23 was voted into the Incubator by the IPMC on October 1, 2011.

Three most important steps moving towards graduation

 - Grow the Any23 PPMC and community
 - Ensure at least one Any23 release
 - Identify and liaise with other semantic web/linked data projects within
   the ASF to establish common goals and objectives.

The Any23 PPMC was delighted to extend an invitation to Peter Ansell during
June. The invitation was subsequently accepted and we are happy to say that
Peter is now on board.

During June/July the community has focused on constructing the 0.7.0-incubating
release candidate. We have experienced several problems along the way which
have delayed this significantly, however as of writing the community is now
VOTE'ing on the 0.7.0-incubating (release candidate #2) release thanks to
Simone Tripodi, we anticipate a release shortly. Since last reporting we have
integrated a number of commits to the project from a range of people. The
total number of commits sitting at >1174 since Any23 entered the Apache
Incubator.

The website at http://incubator.apache.org/any23/ is also up and functioning,
and appears to be in line with the Apache branding requirements.

Lewis John McGibbney worked with ASF infrastructure to get a zone VM up and
running to host the Any23 web service.

The community has again been in touch with members from Stanbol, Jena and
Clerezza and we have already discussed a committer meetup and liaison with
the aforementioned sister projects at the forthcoming ApacheCon Europe.

Any23 is defined as a Java library, a Web service and a set of command line
tools to extract and validate structured data in RDF format from a variety
of Web documents and markup formats. Any23 is what it is informally named
an RDF Distiller.

A list of the three most important issues to address in the move towards
graduation

 1. Port Any23 code to ASF infrastructure and update license headers

 2. Develop a strong community with organizational diversity and with
    strong connections to other relevant ASF communities.

 3. At least one Any23 incubating release

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

 Good news -- Michele Mostarda and Simone Tripodi and Lewis John McGibbney
 and others stepped it up and got the code migrated from Google Code over
 here to Apache. Thanks guys!

How has the community developed since the last report?

 Since the code move from Google Code here to Apache, development traffic
 has picked up. No new committers yet though, so we'll need to watch this
 going forward.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 Any23 was voted into the Incubator by the IPMC on October 1, 2011.

 We still need to discuss Paolo Castagna's points regarding the integration
 of more of the 'semantic web' projects which exist at Apache. Also, a
 number of uses of the project are being realized as Lewis John McGibbney is
 trying to figure out a Nutch plugin. Simone Tripodi did a great job of getting
 our website up and running. So now we have an Incubator website! And the rest
 of the team is starting to discuss on list more. *very* happy about that!
 All in all, everything is going well.

Yes, all of the code has been ported from Google Code to the ASF. Thanks to
Daniel Shahaf and Michele Mostarda for leading the charge here.

How has the community developed since the last report?

All ASF karma has been granted on the repository, and we've received a few
JIRA issues, but not from outside the core set of PPMC members as of yet. The
team needs to respond to Paolo Castagna's points regarding RDF frameworks and
collaboration, and will hopefully do so this month.

How has the project developed since the last report?

Any23 was voted into the Incubator by the IPMC on October 1, 2011.

We have Jenkins CI builds going thanks to Lewis John McGibbney, code up and
running at the ASF thanks to Michele and to Daniel, so we're all set to really
get kicking!

Everyone has their ASF account set up, except for Giovanni Tumarello (ICLA filed
and Chris working on getting account set up). We've already moved our
discussions onto the public mailing lists now that they are set up.

How has the project developed since the last report?

Any23 was voted into the Incubator by the IPMC on October 1, 2011.

Software grants from DERI and from FBK have been filed and accepted thanks to
Michele Mostarda. There has already been discussion of how to move over JIRA
issues and Wiki issues from the Google Code site and the full issues transition
was completed on 12/10/2011. Code imports will likely begin soon, and a pointer
on the existing Google Code site will point to the ASF Incubator as the new
home. Simone has created us a podling status page. Chris filed INFRA-3978 to
track JIRA, Wiki and mailing list creation for podling set up.  It's all taken
care of (thanks Gav).
