## Description:
- Apache Brooklyn Project is a software framework for modeling,
 monitoring and managing cloud applications through autonomic
 blueprints.

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

## Activity:
- We have completed our first release as a top-level project.
- We have taken on our first GSoC student.
- Development continues with a regular turnover of pull requests
 submitted and merged.

## Health report:
- The project continues with a similar level of activity that we have
 seen recently.
- An unsolicited volunteer for a GSoC project has been an exciting
 advance.
- Unfortunately we do not have any talks at ApacheCon NA, owing to
 the majority of our active community being Europe-based. This would
 have been a good opportunity to spread awareness of the project
 which we were unfortunately unable to take advantage of. However we
 have had representation at ApacheCon Europe for the last two years
 and expect this to continue this year.

  Description:
  Apache Brooklyn Project is a software framework for modeling,
  monitoring and managing cloud applications through autonomic
  blueprints.

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

Activity:
 - Our source code repository reorganisation is complete and we are
   now using multiple repositories for different modules of our project.
   This means that our incubator repository is no longer in use.
 - This means that the bulk of the graduation tasks are completed. We
   will conduct a final review of our graduation tasks and tie up any
   loose ends as soon as possible.
 - Having completed the repository reorganisation, we aim to release a
   new version (0.9.0) as soon as possible.

Health report:
 - With regular code contributions and merges, new users on mailing
   lists, and turnover of JIRA tickets, we are satisfied with the
   health of the project.

PMC changes:

 - Currently 11 PMC members.
 - No new PMC members since our last report.

Releases:

 - No release since last report.
 - Last release was 0.8.0-incubating on 14th September 2015.

  Description:
  Apache Brooklyn Project is a software framework for modeling,
  monitoring and managing cloud applications through autonomic
  blueprints.

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

Activity:
 - The holiday season saw a slow-down in activity, but development has
   picked up again. Code is being contributed and merged at a regular
   pace, and new users continue to appear on the mailing lists.
 - We are moving through the post-graduation task list. Our main focus
   is on migrating our source code repository; we are using the move
   from incubator to TLP as an opportunity to reorganise our source code
   from a single monolithic repository to a small number of repositories
   focussed on distinct modules of the project. The new structure has
   been collectively decided and is now in place in the single
   repository; what remains is the physical split and move to the
   multiple new repositories.
 - As soon as the graduation tasks are complete, we aim to release a new
   version (0.9.0) as soon as possible.

Health report:
 - With regular code contributions and merges, new users on mailing
   lists, and turnover of JIRA tickets, we are satisfied with the
   health of the project (aside from the earlier observation about the
   holiday season).

   migrating our source code repository; we are using the move from incubator
   to TLP as an opportunity to reorganise our source code from a single

   distinct modules of the project. This work is almost done.
 - As soon as the graduation tasks are complete, we aim to release a new
   version (0.9.0) as soon as possible.

16 Sep 2015

Brooklyn is a framework for modelling, monitoring, and managing applications
through autonomic blueprints.

Brooklyn has been incubating since 2014-05-01.

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

 1. One more release (under way)
 2. Podling Name Search (under way)
 3.

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

 The Brooklyn community is active, growing, increasingly diverse and doing
 very well. Chip (champion) suggested a couple of weeks back that the
 community should start discussing graduation.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 The 0.7.0 release got out with only minor comments about a month ago.  A
 0.8.0 version is being prepared that addresses the comments and should be
 out shortly.

 There are 2 new committers and PPMC members that joined, plus a 3rd one
 currently under vote.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 Very active, growing community.
 A couple of presentations at LinuxCon in Seattle in Aug.
 Talks scheduled for ApacheCon, Budapest in Oct.

Date of last release:

 2015-07-27 (0.7.0)

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

Brooklyn is a framework for modelling, monitoring, and managing applications
through autonomic blueprints.

Brooklyn has been incubating since 2014-05-01.

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

 1. Grow the community
 2. More diversity of the committers/PPMC (currently biased towards
    employees of a single organization)
 3. Following up our first release with further, regular, releases

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

 None.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 Our community continues to grow slowly but surely, and every month
 receives interest and contributions from new community members. In
 particular, Brooklyn's recent integrations with Cloud Foundry have
 brought some interest from that community into ours.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 Code continues to be proposed and merged at a high rate. We are
 satisfied with our technical velocity.

 We plan to follow up our December release with a further release
 as soon as we can, and following this up with regular releases.
 We plan to add binary convenience bundles to our next release and
 have been working on complying with the appropriate licensing
 documentation for this purpose.

Date of last release:

 2014-12-23 (apache-brooklyn-0.7.0-M2-incubating)

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

Shepherd/Mentor notes:

 Chip Childers (chipchilders):

   The Brooklyn community is doing very well in learning the rules /
   policies / nuances of working at the ASF. It still needs a bit more time
   to build up a diverse community IMO, but things are looking good.

 David Nalley (ke4qqq):

   The Brooklyn folks kicked out their first release during this reporting
   cycle, which is an important milestone. Work still remains in terms of
   building a diverse community.

Brooklyn is a framework for modeling, monitoring, and managing applications
through autonomic blueprints.

Brooklyn has been incubating since 2014-05-01.

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

 1. Performing our first release under Apache
 2. Grow the community
 3. More diversity of the committers/PPMC (currently biased towards
    employees of a single organization)

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

 None.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 Our community continues to grow slowly but surely, and has received
 contributions from new community members that are significant and
 highly interesting to our project.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 No major changes from the last report; we are well-settled into our
 new home and commits are being made at a regular rate. Preparation for
 our first release continues.

 We neglected to mention in last month's report about the completion of
 a code grant for the "camp-server" component. This is a crucial
 component of Brooklyn, and deserves its place in Brooklyn, rather than
 an external dependency where we would have no control over release
 schedules and bug fixing. So we are grateful to the donor, Cloudsoft,
 for passing this component to Apache Brooklyn.

Date of last release:

 No releases under Apache yet.

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

 No change since 2014-07-02.

Shepherd/Mentor notes:

(rvs) a very strong community, the only thing missing to make it exemplary
     would be a release ;-)

Brooklyn is a framework for modelling, monitoring, and managing
applications through autonomic blueprints.

Brooklyn has been incubating since 2014-05-01.

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

 1. Performing our first release under Apache
 2. Grow the community
 3. More diversity of the committers/PPMC (currently biased towards
    employees of a single organisation)

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

 No

How has the community developed since the last report?

 No major changes - the community is still small, but is attracting a
 new names on the mailing list and IRC channel, including some code
 contributions.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 Development is in full progress and we have settled in to our new
 home at the Incubator, and are preparing to make our first release.

Date of last release:

 No releases under Apache yet.

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

 No change since last report, when two new committers/PPMC members
 joined (2014-07-02)

Shepherd/Mentor notes:

(cc) As the report notes, Brooklyn is slowly (but surely) converting over
to the ASF infrastructure and processes. They are making good progress at
this time.
