Crail

20 Jun 2018

Report was filed, but display is awaiting the approval of the Board minutes.

21 Mar 2018

Crail is a storage platform for sharing performance critical
data in distributed data processing jobs at very high speed.

Crail has been incubating since 2017-11-01.

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

1  Community building
2. Improve project visibility
3. Create a first release

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?

* We got one new active committer.
  After moving the code base under apache/incubator-crail,
  we are re-gaining frequency on downloads and followers
* To advertise the project, we are preparing for the
  SF Spark Summit presentation on Crail.
  We got a presentation on Crail's non-volatile data
  management accepted at OpenFabrics workshop in April.

How has the project developed since the last report?

* Podling name search done and approved by Legal.
* Applied fixes resolving two major bugs within Crail code.
* New project front end website.


How would you assess the podling's maturity?

       Well done getting the web site up and the source code into
       ASF git. It feels like the project is really up and running.
       Next steps are a release and podling name search.
