No issue

    Comments: We don't have lot of interaction with BlueMarlin team. I
    will ping them a new time. Update: I have been pinged by BlueMarling
guys, I will move forward with them.

    Comments: I couldn't receive the team any feedback which was a little
disappointing. I have ping team again and like to see does the team still
needs help?

BlueMarlin will develop a web service to add intelligence functionality to a
plain ad system.

BlueMarlin has been incubating since 2020-06-09.

### Three most important unfinished issues to address before graduating:

 1. DL-based performance forecasting
 2. DL-based spend recommendation
 3. DL-based Inventory allocation

### Are there any issues that the IPMC or ASF Board need to be aware of?

### How has the community developed since the last report?

### How has the project developed since the last report?
 The following features were added to predictor_dl_model:
 1. We added new features of user residency and user IPL (IP location).

 2. We added pipeline and product tags to config file. Config file has
 placeholders to resolve the names of intermediate tables instead of
 having user to fill them up.

 3. We pushed model-stats into Hive instead of Elasticsearch. This makes
 the pipeline to create one set of coherent tables that are associates
 with a pipeline run instead of having the artifacts into different
 types of data storage.

### Date of last release:
 Plan to have a release in Jan, 2021

### When were the last committers or PPMC members elected?

### Have your mentors been helpful and responsive?
 Are things falling through the cracks? If so, please list any
 open issues that need to be addressed.

### Is the PPMC managing the podling's brand / trademarks?
 Are 3rd parties respecting and correctly using the podlings
 name and brand? If not what actions has the PPMC taken to
 correct this? Has the VP, Brand approved the project name?

    Comments: The podling has not yet done anything on list.
    The SGA was filed late October 2020 so they are just starting.
    They do not have a repository or a web page.
    They claim in this report to have done a release but there
    is no evidence of this.

### IPMC/Shepherd notes:
 Dave Fisher - I resigned from mentoring this podling. They refuse
 to discuss activity on the mailing list. They do not communicate.
 They claim to make a release. This report is the first time we've
 heard of it.

 Justin Mclean - The issues to be resolved before graduation need
 to be ones related to the community and how Apache operates not
 functionality. I'm concerned about the release and comments by
 other mentors. There are also section in this report that are
 unanswered.
 What can be done to get this project back on track?

 Dave Fisher - There is no back. This podling has never been on
 track.
