contributions enhancing the existing extensions for both
Apache Spark and Apache Flink.

The extensions to Apache Flink has seen higher activity compared to
the extensions to Apache Spark, but hopefully the bringup of the
extensions to support Apache Spark 3.0 will bring the activity level
back to normal.

## Project Activity:

As reported previously, there is a need to produce a new release
of the Flink extensions but work has not started by the community.
I hope that with the new PMC member that is focusing on this area
we can see more progress here.

As Apache Spark has released it's 3.0 release, the Bahir community
needs to identify any areas that need to be adjusted to support the
new Spark release.

the existing extensions for both Apache Spark and Apache Flink.

A new SQS stream connector is being proposed/reviewed as a new extension
for the Spark platform.

For the Bahir Flink extensions, multiple bugfixes and dependency updates
have been provided and is now available in master. A release of the Flink
extensions are still pending.

## Community Health:
Overall community activity has decreased in the last quarter, with lower
mailing list traffic, hopefully this will pickup again on the next year.

Also, there was a question related to committer:pmc ratio, and tha is a side
effect that we offered committer access to all Apache Spark committers when
the project was created, and a not all of them became very active, and thus
didn't become PMC members.
