The development of the Apache Click project has effectively stalled as the

I recommend that the project is moved to the Attic.

This is the inaugural Click board report.

We have recently submitted
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-2425 to migrate Apache
Click from the incubator to a TLP.  Once the project has been migrated
we will release Apache Click 2.1.

There has been an up kick of activity of late with new community
members, bug fixes and ideas. There has also been a book published
"Getting Started with Apache Click"
http://www.fdaoud.com/clickbook/.

I think 2010 is going to be a very good year for Apache Click.

Shane ask the project to include description in report.

= Empire-db =

This is an out of schedule board report, that the Incubator PMC asked us to
provide due to the following incident:

=== The situation ===

A committer "C" of Empire-db had the idea to create and provide an example
application that demonstrates how to use Apache Empire-db together with
Apache CXF. Initially he intended to write the code himself, but then he
found himself too busy and never really got around doing it. So he decided
to ask a student S instead to write the code for him using his templates and
ideas. S then wrote the code with a little aid of C and he got paid for it.
The work contract S had with C said that all rights over the code would
exclusively belong to C.

When the coding was finished, C asked S to submit the code using his Apache
SVN account. For that C temporarily logged S in from within Eclipse to SVN
on one of C's computers (Please note: the login was performed by C the
password itself was not given to S). C then also asked S subscribe and write
to the Empire-db-dev mailing list to resolve problems he had with the Maven
project layout. C believed that all actions taken were legitimate and in the
best interest of the project and the ASF.

=== The issues ===

When a Mentor of the Empire-db project became aware of this transaction, he
raised strong concerns regarding the following two issues:
1. Legal concerns that an ICLA from S would be required for the code that
was contributed.
2. Security concerns, whether access to the SVN could have been abused by S
or the password for the SVN account for C could have been revealed by S.
Furthermore he pointed out, that sharing an account - even temporarily - is
not approved by the community and hence must under no circumstances be
repeated.

These concerns were also forwarded to the Incubator private mailing list,
where the actions taken by C also upset many people. There was a clear
verdict, that the mentor's concerns and disapproval were shared by everyone
else.

C was surprised by the reaction of the Incubator PMC and defended himself
with the following arguments:
1. Since C is the exclusive legal owner of all rights over the code that
was submitted, only he could contribute it to the ASF anyway. Hence an ICLA
for S is from a legal point of view not required, even though he might be
the originator.
2. It is very unlikely and there is absolutely no reason to believe that
the account has been abused or compromised by S in any way, since the login
was only valid for the actual Eclipse session. For people of the same
company, working in the same LAN, there might be technically easier ways of
compromising an account. Even so he takes full responsibility for everything
that is or was done under his account.

C posted his statements on the Empire-db private mailing list and it is
unclear whether all people interested in this subject had the opportunity to
read these arguments.

The respondents were not all convinced by these arguments and the legal
issue still has not been fully resolved. However, still there is a strong
common agreement on the disapproval of account sharing.

=== The resolve ===

C acknowledges and respects the opinion of the community. As far as the
sharing of this account is concerned, he publicly assures not to repeat it
with any of this Apache accounts.

In order to resolve any remaining concerns the following actions were taken
by C and S as requested from the Incubator board:
1. S has signed and submitted an ICLA to the ASF.
2. C has changed this SVN password
