Corinthia

16 Dec 2015

Corinthia is a toolkit/application for converting between and editing common
office file formats, with an initial focus on word processing. It is
designed to cater for multiple classes of platforms - desktop, web, and
mobile - and relies heavily on web technologies such as HTML, CSS, and
JavaScript for representing and manipulating documents. The toolkit is
small, portable, and flexible, with minimal dependencies. The target
audience is developers wishing to include office viewing, conversion, and
editing functionality into their applications.

Corinthia has been incubating since 2014-12-08.

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

 [none]  The IPMC Vote to retire Corinthia was approved on 2015-11-19

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?

 The community effectively disbanded by withdrawal of the primary
 developers on 2015-09-05.  The community crisis mentioned on the
 2015-09-02 report was not resolved.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 Development ceased at the time of the last report.

 1. Solve the community crisis and avoid a break
 2.
 3.

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

 The community is experiencing a major breakdown. The mentors have accessed
 the situation including several attempts to stop the breakdown without
 success. IPMC have been informed with a suggestion which are being
 considered.

 It is to be expected that several core developers will leave the project
 in a very short term unless a solution is found.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 We are proud that we have managed to make our first release.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 Added support for 32/64bit windows.

 Made the setup of a build environment a lot easier, a PPMC provide all
 third party libraries prebuilt.

 A long discussion about licenses lead to major difficulties in deciding
 whether and how to proceed with one of the project’s two main
 components, an end-user editing app. As a result this development is
 being redirected.

 Our buildbot setup is slowly taking shape, this is important since it will
 allow a nightly build as well as a nightly test.

 Discussion are now taking place between more people, signalling that
 the knowledge on the code base is being distributed.

 The period has in general been a bit quit, where people have developed
 more than discussing.

 John D. Ament (johndament):

   Still a new podling, growing pretty well though.  Small number of
   participants that may need further growth to be viable long term.
