Cotton is an Apache Mesos framework for running MySQL instances.

Cotton has been incubating since 2015-06.

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

 1. Increase project communication on mailing lists, JIRA
 2. Attract new project contributors and committers
 3. Establish a first release at Apache

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

 Development of Cotton has largely been inactive for the last two months,
 due to limited time from the original developer and community engagements
 including MesosCon Seattle and MesosCon Europe.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 There has been limited participation on the mailing lists and JIRA,
 however a discussion on the private@ list was established about this issue
 and there's a desire to keep the project in the incubator and be more
 proactive in building community in the coming months.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 * Apache Cotton was presented at MesosCon, available for viewing on
 * Limited development has occurred since the last report.

 Several JIRA issues outline some of the earliest outstanding work,
 including setting up a project website and renaming portions of the
 codebase to reflect the new Apache Cotton name (formerly Mysos).

Date of last release:


When were the last committers or PMC members elected?
