## Description:

   Apache CloudStack (ACS) is an IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) cloud
   orchestration platform.  ACS manages many types of hypervisors, storage
   and networking devices.

## Issues:

 - Project is still waiting to participate in the 'Github as Master' Beta
   to provide the project access to Github features (CI, labels) without
   being an anomaly in what Apache is supporting.

## Activity:

 - Project is preparing for a good presence at ApacheCon USA in Miami
 - Working hard on getting stable releases out
 - Still figuring out how to further automate testing of CloudStack
 - In both the 4.8 and 4.9 series releases were made in the last few months
   and the first VOTE round for 4.10 failed, but RC2 will be voted on next
   week

21 Dec 2016 [Will Stevens / Marvin]

## Description:
   Apache CloudStack (ACS) is an IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) cloud
   orchestration platform.  ACS manages many types of hypervisors, storage
   and networking devices.

## Issues:
 - The outstanding JIRA issue [1] has been closed in favor of a different
   resolution.  Instead of moving `apache/cloudstack` to
   `apachecloudstack/cloudstack`, we will likely be participating in the Beta
   of the new Github As Master initiative which Apache is working on.  This
   will give us access to the Github features we are looking for without
   being an anomaly in what Apache is supporting.
 - We are working with the ASF Infra team to finally get access to the racked
   servers which were donated by Citrix to Apache CloudStack for testing.  It
   has been a slow process, but Greg is working with us to finally make these
   resources available to us.

## Activity:
 - ACS is continuing its focus on testing and release tooling.  Our release
   cadence has intentionally slowed in favor of improving test coverage and
   stability of the large number of different deployment scenarios.  The
   developers at ShapeBlue have built and open sourced a tool called Trillian
   which allows us to automate and more accurately test the ACS features in
   many different deployment scenarios.  We have been integrating this tool
   into our development workflow to better validate the impact of proposed
   pull requests and to verify the functionality.
 - We currently have 3 releases which are in the final RC process; 4.10.0,
   4.9.1 and 4.8.2.  Since we have slowed the release cycle a bit in order to
   improve the test coverage and deployment scenarios, these releases are
   quite large.
 - The intentional slowdown in the release cycle is not a reflection of
   inactivity, but instead, more focus on the quality of the releases for all
   the different deployment scenarios ACS is used in.  You will notice that
   the activity on the dev@ list has actually more than doubled since the
   previous quarter.
 - We continue to rely heavily on the features of Github for managing and
   and merging changes into our source tree.  The majority of our
   communication around the code is actually done inline in the proposed pull
   requests as well as in the comments of the pull requests.  We look forward
   to being able to use additional Github features such as `Status` and
   `Labels`, once the new Github As Master program is available, to improve
   our workflow even more.

## Health report:
   The ACS project is very healthy.  We have a lot of activity and recently
   we have been able to focus on some of the challenges facing a project of
   our complexity.  The slowing of the release cycle so we could focus on
   improving the testability and test automation will produce a better
   experience for our users.

## PMC changes:

 - Currently 42 PMC members.

 - Last PMC addition was Rafael Weingärtner on Sun Apr 24 2016

## Committer base changes:

 - Currently 112 committers.

## Releases:

 - Last releases were 4.9.0 and 4.8.1 around Aug 15 2016

## Mailing list activity:
   We have had a lot of activity on our mailing lists recently.  You will
   notice that our dev@ list has doubled in activity from our previous
   quarter.  That is partly because the previous quarter was down a bit
   because of an extended code freeze, but in general, the mailing lists have
   been very active.

21 Sep 2016 [Will Stevens / Greg]

## Description:
   Apache CloudStack (ACS) is an IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) cloud
   orchestration platform.  ACS manages many types of hypervisors, storage
   and networking devices.

## Issues:
 - The PMC currently has a Jira ticket open [1] with Infra to have the Github
   mirror `apache/cloudstack` moved to `apachecloudstack/cloudstack`.
   This initiative was approved in May 2016 and all my attempts to move
   this activity forward have been unsuccessful.  This is a priority
   issue for our project and we need it addressed ASAP with a clear path
   forward.

## Activity:
 - The 4.9.0 and 4.8.1 versions have been released after a bit of a slow
   spring.
 - The release schedule has had quite a bit of work and we have a proposal
   for the release schedule in the works right now [2].  We hope to have a
   more predictable release schedule going forward, so this is a good first
   step.
 - The community/users have been requesting a project feature roadmap, so we
   have started work on it [3].

## Health report:
   The project is healthy.  The mailing list has been active other than a
   small lull while the branches were frozen for stabilizing and releasing
   4.9.0.  In addition to the normal continued development of the project, we
   have been looking into better support the users of the project and
   increase adoption.  Two items which users / potential users have brought
   up as deficiencies is the lack of an LTS release and the lack of a project
   feature roadmap.  We are working to address both of these issues to better
   position the project to potential users.

## PMC changes:

## Releases:

 - 4.9.0 was released on Fri Aug 12 2016
 - 4.8.1 was released on Mon Aug 15 2016

## Mailing list activity:

 - We had a drop in mailing list participation due to the master branch being
   frozen for an extended period as we got the details of the massive 4.9.0
   release stabilized and shipped.  The mailing list activity picked up to
   its normal rate as soon as the branches were unfrozen.

There is concern that approving the Cloudstack PMC request for getting the 'apache/cloudstack' repository moved to 'apachecloudstack/cloudstack' will set a precedent that we don't necessarily want.

@Greg follow up to make sure infra understand exactly what will be done and whether we want to use this as an example of services that infra can support

## Description:
   Apache CloudStack (ACS) is an IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) cloud
   orchestration platform.  ACS manages many types of hypervisors, storage
   and networking devices.


## Issues:

 - The PMC currently has a Jira ticket open with Infra to have the Github
   mirror `apache/cloudstack` moved to `apachecloudstack/cloudstack`.
 - Once the move described by the above Jira ticket is done, the ACS project
   will be able to better manage the implementation of our CI initiative.


## Activity:

 - We had a slow down in releases in the first half of this year due to not
   having a Release Manager.  We have resolved this and we are actively
   working to get back to a consistent release schedule.
 - A CloudStack Collaboration Conference was held in Montreal from June 1-3.
   The event went very well and the community was engaged and supportive.
   Videos from the event will be published soon so the broader community who
   where not able to attend are able to take advantage of the content.
 - A CloudStack Collaboration Conference is scheduled to be hosted in Brazil
   on Sept 29-30, we are not aware of any ASF conflicts at this time.
 - We are actively reviewing some community contributed artwork for "powered
   by apache cloudstack".  The current "powered by apache" trademark
   templates do not represent our brand very well, so we are reviewing some
   alternatives.  The artwork in question is currently available here:
   [http://poweredbycloudstack.bitcloud.cloud/](http://poweredbycloudstack.bitcloud.cloud/)
 - It still remains to be seen if the Accelerite purchase of CloudPlatform
   from Citrix will impact the ACS community in any way.  We are hopeful that
   the change will enable the CloudPlatform developers to more actively
   collaborate with the ACS project.  We will remain diligent to make sure
   there are no conflicts of interest for the ACS project.
 - The Schuberg Philis fork of Apache CloudStack does not seem to be
   negatively affecting the ACS project in a substantial way.  Their
   developers were very active in our community and the development process,
   so we definitely miss their direct contribution.  They have remained
   relatively active in the community and have been periodically backporting
   bug fixes for our project.
 - We continue to focus on improving the CI workflow and tools available for
   testing the ACS software.  This activity is expected to continue getting a
   lot of focus over the remainder of the year.
 - We are working to make the release cycle less dependant on a single person
   as release manager and are working to add more structure around the
   release process.
 - We are in the early stages of introducing an LTS release of the ACS
   software every 6 months to better address the enterprise use case for our
   software.
 - We are in the early stages of working out how to best publish a roadmap
   for the project and who is working on what.  The lack of a roadmap and
   inconsistency in our release schedule have been hightlighted as a
   potential barriers for adoption of our software, so we are actively
   working to address these areas.


## Health report:

 - Committee Health score: 10.00 (Super Healthy) from reporter.apache.org
 - The community, in general, seems to be in concensus on the different
   topics we need to be focusing on as a project.  Primarily testability and
   CI workflows, and consistency in our release schedule.  The move of our
   `apache/cloudstack` github repository to the `apachecloudstack` github org
   will help us better address these areas, so we are eager for that to take
   place.


## PMC changes:

 Special Order 7D, Change the Apache CloudStack Project Chair,
 was approved by Unanimous Vote of the directors present.

18 May 2016 [Sebastien Goasguen / Brett]

## Objective:
 The purpose of this report is to expedite the process of moving the GitHub
 mirror from `apache/cloudstack` to `apachecloudstack/cloudstack` as per the
 details outlined in this report.  We would like to request that the ASF Board
 consider this report and approve the move.  We would also request that the
 ASF Infra team engage with us and do the actual transfer.

## Description:
 Apache CloudStack (ACS) is an IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) cloud
 orchestration platform.  ACS manages many types of hypervisors, storage and
 networking devices. Due to the infrastructure complexity, testing and
 validating ACS is a time consuming and costly endeavor.  Our community is
 willing to share the labor and costs associated with building distributed and
 automated testing environments, but we are facing many challenges with the
 available automation integration points.

## Issue:
 Apache CloudStack has been making extensive use of GitHub pull requests and
 they have become integral in the development workflow in our community.  The
 ACS GitHub repository is a mirror of the ASF repository, which is used as the
 source of truth for the project code and only committers can contribute to
 the ASF repository.  Currently the ACS GitHub repository is under the
 `apache` GitHub organization.  Unfortunately, due to the lack of permissions
 on specific repositories inside a GitHub organization, no changes can be made
 to a single repository without being applied to all repositories under that
 organization.  This has become a problem for our project because we do not
 have access to features such as being able to Label pull requests or add
 post commit hooks in order to kick off Continuous Integration runs when a
 branch changes, to give a couple examples.

 The ACS PMC has proposed and voted on a resolution to move the ACS GitHub
 mirror out of the `apache` GitHub organization and into the
 `apachecloudstack` GitHub organization.  The commit workflow will not change
 and the ASF git repository will remain the source of truth for the project.
 Both the ASF Infra team and members of the ACS PMC will have ownership rights
 on the `apachecloudstack` GitHub organization.

 There are many motivating factors for this change, a few of which are briefly
 outlined in the following list:
 - The Release Management of the ACS project has been a daunting task due to
   a highly manual process, with very few hooks for support from the greater
   community or through automation.  The RM task is currently a full time job,
   making it difficult to find individuals willing to step up to the RM role.
   This has had a negative impact on our project because periods of time
   without a RM gives the impression that the project is stagnant.
 - The ability to use GitHub Labels will make a huge difference for our
   project by enabling the greater community to help manage the status of
   different pull requests and let the release manager focus more on the PRs
   that are ready.
 - Being able to use the GitHub Status features on pull requests will help us
   better integrate the results from distributed CI runs into the workflow.
 - Being able to setup GitHub Hooks such as the `post-commit-hook` will enable
   us to better automate the distributed hardware CI integrations provided by
   different community members, ensuring the code quality is maintained.
 - The ability to close PRs that are no longer relevant without having to
   track down the author to have them do it will help a lot in making sure the
   PRs that are open are valid.

 This is not an exhaustive list, but a few items which will make a huge impact
 on the sustainability of our project.

 In addition to the details outlined above, moving the GitHub `cloudstack`
 repository to the `apachecloudstack` GitHub organization, enables us to
 consolidate all of the different cloudstack related projects into a single
 organization.  This will enable the community to better organize itself and
 the maintain the other projects or documentation directly related to ACS.

 Here is an incomplete list of projects currently being maintained
 independently which we would like to move into the `apachecloudstack` GitHub
 organization once we have moved the `cloudstack` repository:
 - cloudstack-cloudmonkey
 - cloudstack-www
 - cloudstack-docs
 - cloudstack-docs-install
 - cloudstack-docs-rn
 - cloudstack-docs-admin
 - cloudstack-ec2stack
 - cloudstack-gcsstack

## Progress:
 This initiative has been slowly moving forward over the past few months.
 Here is a breakdown of our current status:
 - All parties are in agreement with the decision to make the move [1][2][3].
 - I have talked to GitHub support about getting the `mirror` setup after the
   move.  They said that a user who has admin access to both organizations can
   email them after the transfer and they will setup the mirror for us.
 - I have setup the `apachecloudstack` GitHub organization.
 - I have added Sam Ruby, Chris Mattmann and David Nalley (as well as some PMC
   members) as owners of the `apachecloudstack` GitHub organization.

## Next Steps:
 We are now at the final steps to get this done.  Here are the remaining tasks
 in order to move this forward.
 - Get a list of the ASF Infra members who should be added to the
   `apachecloudstack` GitHub organization as owners.
 - Do the transfer of the `cloudstack` GitHub repository from the `apache`
   GitHub organization to the `apachecloudstack` GitHub organization.
 - Contact GitHub support to update the mirror so the repository at
   `apachecloudstack/cloudstack` is a mirror of the source of truth ASF git
   repository.

Please feel free to reach out to us on the private@ mailing list if you have any
questions or to work out any other final logistics.

## Description:
Apache CloudStack is an IaaS (“Infrastracture as a Service”) cloud
orchestration platform.


## Issues:
- CloudStack community wants to experiment with a pure GitHub approach to our
 version control and CI.
- We took control of https://github.com/cloudstack which we did not own before
 (Github transferred ownership to members of the PMC).
- The PMC seeks guidance from the board on GitHub integration and would like
 to know what the plan and timeline is (if there is one) on operating an ASF
 project out of GitHub.
- The Whimsy experiment on Github appears totally opaque to us and we don’t
 know what the status or plan is.

## Activity:
- Large increase of releases with 4 since December due to a new commit workflow
- CloudStack conference Brazil announced for Sept 29-30, no ASF conflicts as
 we know it.
- Citrix CloudPlatform business was sold to Accelerite, this may impact
 CloudStack
- Schuberg Philis as forked CloudStack (interim report sent to board on
 February 16th) (Annex A).
- Increased focus on CI and investigation of solutions outside of ASF infra.

## Health report:
- Committee Health score: 9.60 (Super Healthy) from reporter.apache.org
- Slight increase of registered participants in all mailing lists
- Slight decrease in number of emails sent on MLs.
- Significant decrease in commits while we searched for a new RM
- Increase in speed of releases as we adopted new workflow

Annex A
——————

This interim report was sent to the board on February 16th with no response:

Dear Board,

The CloudStack report is not due until next round of reports, but I wanted to
report two partially related items:

1.  Schuberg-Philis a company where a significant number of CloudStack
committers happens to work has forked CloudStack. The fork has received media
attention [3], hence this interim report to let the board know that we are
indeed well aware of the situation.

A detail account of the company’s reasoning is described in [1].  Their fork
is available on Github at [2].

A fork by a company of an ASF software is a non-issue (there are other
cloudstack forks) and our community is very thankful to Schuberg Philis for
many years of strong support, either through community events (organizing and
sponsoring) or through their indirect commitment via committers who happens to
have a $dayjob at Schuberg.

2.  Through private discussions with committers who happen to have a $dayjob
at SBP, our lack of privileges/control on our github mirror has played *some*
role in this fork and created frustration. ( It is not to say that better
github control would have prevented the fork, but it might have allowed us to
resolve short term issues giving us time to work on longer term ones).

There is a risk that similar frustration grows within our community and that
developers accustomed to working on github decide to work directly on the SBP
fork or their own, thereby fragmenting our community.


Actionable items for the board:

We have not heard any reports on the status of Whimsy’s testing of github but
we would welcome being allowed to join any testing phase or if the boards
sides in favor of operating an ASF project directly on Github, we would
quickly vote in our community to decide on such a move.

Best,

@Sam: Get more (actionable) information on github fork

16 Dec 2015 [Sebastien Goasguen / Chris]

## Description:
   Apache CloudStack is an IaaS (“Infrastracture as a Service”) cloud
   orchestration platform.

## Issues:
- Looking closely at the results of the GitHub experiment as CloudStack is
  using github heavily for its contribution including from committers.
- The github discussion is totally opaque to non ASF members
- Still looking for Docker hub integration
- The community will most likely start thinking about releasing official
  binaries
- The community will soon face an issue that we will be able to cut releases
  faster than we can vote, hence a discussion on continuous release will be
  needed.
- There are no other issues requiring board attention at this time

## Activity:
- CloudStack conference was held in Dublin in October collocated with
  Linuxcon/Mesoscon. Event was a success and showed stable community 150
  attendees, great content, solid sponsors.
- CloudStack conference 2016 will be in Sao-Paulo organized by the University
  of Sao Paulo one of the leading users of CloudStack. The community is
  thriving there hence the fous on latin-america.
- New commit workflow is showing its results. 4.6.0 was released in Nov 14
  2015 , 4.6.1 and 4.6.2 (under vote) shortly thereafter. And 4.7.0 is out for
  VOTE with 4 new key features such as Nuage SDN enhancements and quota
  plugin.

## Health report:
 -
- Committee Health score: 10.00 (Super Healthy) from reporter.apache.org

## Description:
 Apache CloudStack is an IaaS (“Infrastracture as a Service”) cloud
 orchestration platform.

## Activity:
- The CloudStack project continues to release new software at a steady pace.
- We have adopted a new commit workflow for our master branch.  Trying to
 stabilize master and make it the releasable branch.  All commits to master
 must now be reviewed and given two LGTM + green Travis tests before being
 merged. While this slows down development, our hope is that it increases
 stability and reduces time between releases.
- EC2stack which went through IP clearance is now going through its first
 release VOTE
- We have added Docker images for our main components
 (simulator, management server, marvin, ec2stack, cloudmonkey)
- We have held two CloudStack day events collocated with Linuxcon, attendance
 has been poor.  CloudStack conference Europe is scheduled for Oct 8-9 in
 Dublin, this is a multi-day event.  It seems that the collocation with
 linuxcon is not providing the cross-pollination hoped for and despite the
 good number of registrations there is a significant number of no shows.

## Health report:
- Committee Health score: 9.60 (Super Healthy) from reporter.apache.org
- Participation on mailing lists is stable
- Participation in CloudStack day events has been poor so far this year
- Cycle of releases is healthy

## Issues:
- A slight note that ASF infra should make sure to pay attention to Docker Hub
 integration and the use of it to house ASF software images.
- The CloudStack “marketing alliance” effort which had been discussed
 at length has stalled with no further discussions.
- There are no other issues requiring board attention at this time

## LDAP committee group/Committership changes:

- Currently 106 committers and 39 LDAP committee group members.

DESCRIPTION
Apache CloudStack is open source software designed to deploy and manage
large networks of virtual machines, as a highly available, highly scalable
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud computing platform.

ISSUES

CVE-2014-7807: Apache CloudStack unauthenticated LDAP binds, Dec 8 2014

CURRENT ACTIVITY
* The community is working on the next major release (4.5.0) of Apache CloudStack.
The first release candidate is available already.
* Ongoing efforts in fixing bugs and findings from static code analysis
resulted in a number of bug fixes to existing branches.
* Apache CloudStack CloudMonkey 5.3.0 was released on Nov 11 2014. Apache
CloudStack CloudMonkey is a CLI tool for interacting with Apache
CloudStack and is distributed separate from Apache CloudStack
* Apache CloudStack 4.4.1 was released Oct 23 2014. This maintenance release
is followed by a second maintenance release numbered 4.4.2 at Dec 10 2014. Release
4.4.2 fixes the vulnerability reported in CVE-2014-7807
* The community enjoyed a very successful European CloudStack
Collaboration Conference (CCCEU). CCCEU in Budapest. The new format including
a full day single room track and poster sessions seemed to work out well.
* The community is still struggling with way to improve quality and prevent master
from breaking. Multiple efforts including improved automated testing and work flow
enhancements are being executed and/or proposed. There is no clear consensus other
than the generic agreement that the current situation leaves ample room for
improvement.

DESCRIPTION
Apache CloudStack is open source software designed to deploy and manage
large networks of virtual machines, as a highly available, highly scalable
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud computing platform.

ISSUES

None

CURRENT ACTIVITY
* The community is working on maintenance releases for both the 4.3.0 and
 the 4.4.0 releases.
* The agreed release schedule is not met at the moment as we regularly identify
 quality issues in pending releases. This is an ongoing process, but slowly
 we are improving our QA processes and introducing more testing capabilities.
* Apache CloudStack CloudMonkey 5.2.0 was released on Aug 28 2014. Apache
 CloudStack CloudMonkey is a CLI tool for interacting with Apache
 CloudStack and is distributed separate from Apache CloudStack
* Apache CloudStack 4.4.0 was released July 26 2014. Some issues were
 identified with this release after the release. The community decided
 not to market this release to a big audience and work on a maintenance
 release immediately.
* The community is working with The Linux Foundation to prepare
 the second European CloudStack Collaboration Conference
 (CCCEU). CCCEU will planned following ApacheCon in
 Budapest from November 19 till 21. It will have a new format
 which will hopefully engage more users and developers.
* The CloudStack PMC was approached with a request to approve an outside
 organization being formed in order for companies to pool resources together
 to help promote Apache CloudStack. This included a specific request to use
 the term CloudStack within the name of the organization. The PMC voted to
 approve that request, but also consulted trademarks@ to get advice on how to
 handle the situation.
 The response led us to the decision to not formally approve the use of our
 mark, but to point the requester to the ASF's domain name policy.
 As a followup action, the PMC was asked to communicate its general agreement
 to the concept of a trade organization being independently formed to help
 promote our project. The PMC did that via an email to the "parent"
 organization that is currently being considered by these companies as the
 home for the CloudStack Alliance.

DESCRIPTION
Apache CloudStack is open source software designed to deploy and manage

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud computing platform.

ISSUES

None

CURRENT ACTIVITY
* The community is working on the CloudStack 4.4.0 release. In the original
 planning the release should have been pushed out already. The delay is
 caused by testers identifying multiple blocking issues.
* Apache CloudStack CloudMonkey 5.1.0 was released on May 16 2014. Apache
 CloudStack CloudMonkey is a CLI tool for interacting with Apache
 CloudStack and is distributed separate from Apache CloudStack
* The community is working with The Linux Foundation to setup
 the second European CloudStack Collaboration Conference
 (CCCEU). CCCEU will planned following ApacheCon in
 Budapest from November 19 till 21.
* The Japanese user group is sending activity reports to the
 mailing-list. This gives the non-Japanese part of the community an
 insight on what they are doing and promotes cooperation worldwide
 across language barriers.
* Our change in documentation format seems to have significantly
 improved the workflow for contributions, and we are now seeing an
 increase in the overall diversity and amount of doc contributions.
* The Apache CloudStack PMC has voted in favor of licensing
 our marks to an external organization dedicated to promoting the
 Apache CloudStack project and ecosystem. We have forwarded the request
 for legal support in the drafting of a licensing agreement to VP Brand
 Management.
* The decision above is meant as a complement to foundation and
 project-level awareness efforts. Several members of the PMC had a call
 with Sally on Thursday, May 1st, to ensure that she had the necessary
 background to help with a marketing strategy for the project. We are
 looking forward to the next steps with Sally on this front.
* During ApacheCon, the project had engaged with the Infra team regarding
 our infrastructure needs for a build environment independent from a
 single vendor. Since that time, several members of the PMC has been
 working to pull together a specific proposal to share with Infra. At
 this point in time, we are still collating quotes and designs into a
 meaningful proposal.

CURRENT ACTIVITY

As this is an out of cycle report, and we just reported last month,
this report does not include all of the typical elements.

The CloudStack community has just held its Collaboration Conference
in Denver, and would like to report that the event was a success. The
fact that it was co-located with ApacheCon for the first time was a
significant improvement on past events. Primarily, this is because it
offered an opportunity for the CloudStack community to better
integrate into the larger ASF family (and for ASF community members to
learn more about CloudStack). We would like to thank the board, the
executive officers and specifically Rich for his support.

DESCRIPTION
Apache CloudStack is open source software designed to deploy and manage
large networks of virtual machines, as a highly available, highly scalable
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud computing platform.

ISSUES

The board has a resolution on it's agenda for this meeting to change
the Apache CloudStack PMC chair (special order B).

CURRENT ACTIVITY
* The community is finalizing our Apache CloudStack 4.3.0 release. This
 release was delayed from the community's initial target for a release date,
 due to an issue with how we were treating a specific dependency during the
 default build of the software. This issue was identified by the PMC and has
 been resolved. We are actively testing our latest RC now.
* The project was informed that the Citrix-hosted realhostip.com DNS resolver
 service will be going offline this summer. It is currently used by
 CloudStack installations as a default installation configuration option.
 Best practice for production installations include changing this to a
 local solution, however we are aware that many installations do not make
 this change. We will be informing our user community of this news during
 our 4.3.0 release announcement, and have already committed a patch that
 removes the need for this external service from 4.3.0 onward.
* The project is about to go into feature freeze for Apache CloudStack 4.4.0.
* The documentation has made the proposed transition from the publican
 docbook format to .rst format. It is too early to tell if this had the
 desired effect on lowering the barriers for user contributions.
* The community is working with TLF to organize the upcoming CCC14NA
 conference in Denver, with the event obviously being co-located with
 ApacheCon NA.

* A large number of new features, integrations and bug fixes continue to be
 committed to the repository, so we remain a healthy and growing project.

* The community participated actively in the CloudStack Collaboration Conference
 EU in Amsterdam in early November. The event was quite successful, both in terms
 of drawing in new members to our community, as well as providing an opportunity
 for the Apache CloudStack community to work with a number of other projects
 (notably Apache Libcloud and Gluster). Close to 400 people attended the event.

* We have broken out our CLI tool, CloudMonkey, from the main CloudStack git
 repository, and we have made our first release of that software in September.

* We have broken the product documentation out from the main source code repository,
 with the specific intent of being able to have the documentation release /
 publishing process be faster and easier than the code itself.  There is also
 a proposal being discussed to change from the publican docbook format to .rst
 format in the hope that this will lower the barriers for user contributions.

RELEASES
* Apache CloudStack CloudMonkey 5.0.0 was released on September 24, 2013
* Apache CloudStack 4.2.0 was released on October 1, 2013.

DESCRIPTION

Apache CloudStack is open source software designed to deploy and manage
large networks of virtual machines, as a highly available, highly
scalable Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud computing platform.

ISSUES

CURRENT ACTIVITY

* The community continues to work on new features, continued architectural
 improvements and bug fixes. Most focus has been on our 4.2.0 release.

* Due to the high volume of emails on both dev@ and users@, Daan (dahn) has
 been providing the dev@ list with a responsiveness report listing questions
 that are unanswered (helping get them answered).

* The community participated actively in the CloudStack Collaboration Conference
 in Santa Clara in June. A second collaboration conference is scheduled for Nov
 in Amsterdam (this has been shared with trademarks@), and the planning includes
 many PMC members, committers and community members.

* Our community goal of having "time-based" feature releases continues to be
 challenging, due to the level of testing required to ensure that we are not
 introducing regressions into the software. Automated testing has continued to
 improve, but the community is also discussing how infrastructure changes could
 help manage the code quality with such a high rate of change.

* We have broken out our CLI tool, CloudMonkey, from the main CloudStack git
 repository, and will be working toward independent releases of that software.

* We are discussing breaking the product's documentation out into it's own
 repository, as well as potentially changing the format of the documentation
 source as a potential way to reduce the learning curve for new documentation
 contributors.

RELEASES
* 4.1.1 was released on August 6, 2013.
* 4.2.0 has passed the vote, and will be announced shortly.

Apache CloudStack is open source software designed to deploy and manage
large networks of virtual machines, as a highly available, highly
scalable Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud computing platform.

RELEASES

* The last release of Apache CloudStack was 4.0.1-incubating (Feb 12, 2013)
* The community is currently finalizing two new releases: 4.0.2 and 4.1.0

CURRENT ACTIVITY

Our graduation checklist is mostly complete, pending some final resource
transfers from Citrix to the ASF. We had positive press coverage of the
graduation announcement (examples: [http://s.apache.org/csgradpress]).
Special thanks to infra@ for their rapid response to our graduation
related change requests and press@ for the release announcement
support.

* New features continuing to merge into master for our 4.2.0 release.

* Post 4.1.0, the community plans to begin outreach to various Linux
distros for official packaging.

* Improved automated unit and integration test coverage is a major area
of community focus.

* Lots of marketing related activity is in progress this month (website
redesign, CloudStack University initiative, community member talk
submissions)

COMMUNITY

Five new committers were added to the project since graduating:

* Hiroaki Kawai
* Ahmad Emneina

CloudStack is an IaaS (“Infrastructure as a Service”) cloud orchestration
platform.

CloudStack has been incubating since 2012-04-16.

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

 1. Continuing to build the community and increase diversity, while
    effectively managing the overall scale of the project.
 2. Ensuring all deliberation, decision-making, and development is
    happening openly and collaboratively.
 3. Transfer trademark, etc. to Apache

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

 No issues at this time

How has the community developed since the last report?

 We have noticed a trend of features for CloudStack being developed
 outside of the Apache CloudStack community and "thrown over the
 wall." We are identifying features that may not have been developed
 appropriately and requiring contributors to either demonstrate that
 they have been discussed and developed in the open, or requiring IP
 clearance for those features. We have also opened discussion about
 this on the -dev mailing list and ensuring that committers
 understand the obligations to development in the open.

 The project has continuted to grow and has added several new PPMC
 members and committers since October:

 - Edison Su, Alex Huang, Hugo Trippaers, Chiradeep Vittal, and
   Joe Brockmeier have joined the PPMC since October.

 - Rohit Yadav, Marcus Sorensen, Gavin Lee, Sudha Ponnaganti, Kelcey
   Damage, Min Chen, and Sebastien Goasguen have become committers.

 Members of the CloudStack community have been active in promoting the
 project since the last report, with members giving talks about Apache
 CloudStack at USENIX LISA, CPOSC, ApacheCon EU, LinuxCon EU, and other
 events.

 The CloudStack Collaboration Conference (sponsored primarily by
 Citrix) was a fairly successful first conference. More than 300
 people attended the event, held November 30 - December 2 in Las
 Vegas at The Venetian.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 The first release, 4.0.0-incubating, was announced on November 6th.

 The CloudStack.org domain now points to Apache infrastructure.

 4.0.1 and 4.1.0 are currently in development. The community has
 decided to work on a time-based release cycle for feature releases,
 with 4.1.0 expected at the beginning of April. Feature releases will
 follow a four-month cycle thereafter.

 2. Shipping a release
 3. Transfer trademark, etc. to Apache

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

 No issues at this time

How has the community developed since the last report?

 The project has continued to improve its diversity, adding
 Chip Childers, John Kinsella, and Wido den Hollander to the PPMC
 and 3 new committers since the month of August. (Mice Xia, Jason
 Bausewein, and Joe Brockmeier.) We have also taken on a new mentor,
 Noah Slater.

 Contributors and committers have been active in promoting CloudStack
 at events, such as LinuxCon, Ohio LinuxFest, PuppetConf, a get-together
 at Schuberg Philis, and a number of other events.

 The community is participation at LinuxCon EU and ApacheCon EU and
 a number of other events through the remainder of 2012.

 Citrix is acting as primary sponsor of a CloudStack Collaboration
 Conference for November 30 through December 2 in Las Vegas. The
 conference is open to the community, and programming for the event
 will be chosen by a committee that includes members of the CloudStack
 community outside Citrix.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 The pending 4.0 release has been branched. The project has made a great
 deal of progress towards the 4.0 release, handling a number of technical
 issues (such as a move to Maven) and resolving almost all known legal
 issues that would pose an obstacle to a release. The sole remaining
 blocker is under discussion and should be resolved shortly.

 The Jira instance for CloudStack was stood up in early September. License
 checks have been automated to ensure that we remain compliant with Apache
 guidelines going forward.

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

 1. Licensing work
 2. Finishing up the move of CloudStack infrastructure resources to the ASF.
 3. Shipping a release.

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

 No issues at this time

How has the community developed since the last report?

 CloudStack has added 6 new committers in the month of July.

 We had BOF and hackathon time at OSCON, which was a positive benefit for
 those committers who attended, particularly in being able to delve into
 issues around incubation, branding, and licensing. Additionally two
 committers presented tutorials at OSCON one focused on end users deploying
 CloudStack and the other focused on developers hacking on CloudStack, both
 had great attendance.

 We have also had some offers of contribution from people at Bitergia who are
 interested in contributing the work that they have done around metrics.
 which was a very encouraging start to growing the community.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 Lots of modularization has been injected into CloudStack, which makes some
 of our licensing issues far less of a problem as we can merely turn the
 affected code off by default.

 The wiki has begun migration to an ASF hosted wiki instance.

 One of the CloudStack committers provided a dramatically easier way to be
 able to test and develop for CloudStack in the form a completely contained
 CloudStack environment that can be run as a VirtualBox VM. Much additional
 enhancement has been contributed to this making the process easier and
 easier to update.

 We also saw the movement of documentation from binary .docx files to
 DocBook XML; while this effort isn't complete it does permit folks to far
 more easily collaborate, as well as providing a far better interface
 for l10n.

CloudStack is an IaaS (“Infrastracture as a Service”) cloud orchestration
platform. CloudStack has been in incubation since 2012-04-16

The top 3 issues to address to move towards graduation:

 - CloudStack's source still contains works that are prohibited for release
   under ASF guidelines
 - Performing a release
 - Migration of infrastructure (bug tracker, CI, websites, etc)

How has the community developed since the last report:

 As of the time of this report at least one new committer has been added.
 Additionally, a number of previously unknown developers have begun making
 substantial quantities of bug fixes and even working on new functionality.

How has the project developed since the last report:

 The project itself continues to deal with process questions as well as
 learning how to operate in the new environment. A good deal of work has
 been happening on resolving the problems in the code base around licensing,
 though not currently close to finishing.

CloudStack is an IaaS (“Infrastracture as a Service”) cloud orchestration
platform. CloudStack has been in incubation since 2012-04-16

CloudStack has been in the incubator for approximately 1.5 months. Mailing
lists have migrated, accounts for the initial committers have been set up,
and the initial code drop/git repo has been setup. Many new names are now
participating in conversations on the mailing lists, with several of them
volunteering to help move things along. The number of submitted patches from
'new names' in the month of May is in the double digits, and range from
trivial one line fixes to two major patches with over 1,000 changed lines
each. The community is beginning to exercise some of its decision making
power by deciding about release tempo, future version schemes and numbers,
and a number of other internal plumbing issues. Much remains to be done in
preparation for the initial release, and those tasks are being identified.
We also have a number of external resources (bug tracker, wiki, CI) that
are still awaiting migration.

Top 3 Issues to address in move towards graduation

 - The project is using source and binaries with a number of
   non-ASF-approved licenses. This needs remediation.

 - Diversity of the contributor base still needs to be expanded.

 - While we are making progress, there still remains a number of large
   pieces (bug tracker, wiki, test infra) that still need to be migrated
   to ASF infrastructure.

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

 No issues that we are aware of at this point.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 See the above narration, but generally speaking the community is beginning
 to exercise its decision making powers, largely around internal plumbing
 issues at the moment. We are also seeing a number of new developers
 submitting patches.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 The project continues to have many issues to tackle for its first release
 and is identifying and moving forward on those issues. Work continues on
 solutions to remove the need to massive (or any) amount of additional
 hardware to test/develop with in an effort to lower the barrier to
 participate.

CloudStack is an IaaS (“Infrastracture as a Service”) cloud orchestration
platform. CloudStack has been in incubation since 2012-04-16

Overview:

 Cloudstack just entered the incubator a couple of weeks ago. Since then,
 the mailing list has been setup  and discussions have started to migrate
 from the existing list to the ASF-hosted list, with several 'new names'
 participating including one of those 'new names' submitting a patch.
 Currently, the code repository and bulk of existing infrastructure is still
 hosted by Citrix, but the community is looking forward to getting that
 moved to Apache as soon as possible.

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

 1. The base level of infrastructure migration has begun but still has far
    to be finished. At present the mailing lists exist, but wiki, project
    website, source repository, bug tracker, etc still need to be brought
    up and migrated. In many ways we are blocked on further progress by
    lack of account creation for initial committers.

 2. Diversity of the contributor base still needs to be expanded - this was
    identified as an issue in the proposal, and remains one, though we are
    encouraged by a seeming uptick (we've been in incubation for less than
    a week, so trends are indeed difficult to identify at this point) in
    interest on the mailing lists from previously uninvolved individuals.

 3. The project needs a working process definition.  What is the review
    process for contributions, recommendations for engaging before writing
    large amounts of code, etc.

 4. The project is using source and binaries with a number of
    non-ASF-approved licenses.  This needs remediation.

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

 No issues that we are aware of at this point.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 There has been no previous report - so nothing to report here.
