Crunch

19 Jul 2017 [Josh Wills / Phil]

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

19 Apr 2017 [Josh Wills / Mark]

## Description:
 Apache Crunch is a Java library for writing, testing, and running MapReduce
 and Apache Spark pipelines on Apache Hadoop.

## Issues:
 There are no issues requiring board attention at this time.

## Activity:
 Activity since the most recent release (February 2017) has been focused
 on upgrading the versions of major dependencies (especially HBase and Spark)
 in preparation for a 1.0 release, which will be synced with the latest
 and greatest from downstream projects and will allow us to clean up some
 deprecated parts of the API.

## Health report:
 Although the current focus of the project is good and useful, the question
 now is what to do after the 1.0 release is complete, which brings us back
 to broader questions about the future of Crunch and how it should relate
 to similar top-level projects like Apache Beam. We'll begin this conversation
 in earnest on the dev mailing list once the 1.0 release is finished.

18 Jan 2017 [Josh Wills / Brett]

Apache Crunch is a Java library for writing, testing, and running MapReduce
and Apache Spark pipelines on Apache Hadoop.

## Issues:

There are no issues requiring board attention at this time.

## Activity:

The JIRAs for the past few months have focused on core bug fixes and
iteration/fixes on the Apache Kafka support that we started on after our last
release in May.

## Health report:

The Crunch code does what it does well, and it has for at least a few
releases. Beyond bug fixes and supporting upgrades to new Hadoop/Spark
releases, there isn't an obvious new direction to take the project in that
would stay true to its original mission while remaining useful to developers.
In terms of project goals, API design, and even a subset of committers, Crunch
has a lot in common with the newly top-level Apache Beam project, which is
focused on the next generation of data processing engines that unify batch and
streaming use cases into a single API. Finding a way to join forces with Beam
is one available way forward for the project, but figuring out what that move
would look like would require some extensive discussions on the mailing lists,
both about the future of data pipelines in general as well as the role that
the Crunch community most wants to play.

19 Oct 2016 [Josh Wills / Isabel]

## Description:
   Apache Crunch is a Java library for writing, testing, and running
   MapReduce and Apache Spark pipelines on Apache Hadoop.

## Issues:
   We had a report this quarter that a file that was used in some of our
   tests contained content that had an unclear copyright status outside
   of the US (maugham.txt, containing a sampling of work from W. Somerset
   Maugham.) We removed this file from our source repo and updated the
   tests that made use of it, as discussed in this JIRA issue:
   https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CRUNCH-616 If the board feels
   that any additional action is required here, please let the PMC know
   and we will take it.

## Activity:
   We had a normal amount of activity this month, primarily focused on
   performance and debugging for very large MapReduce pipelines executed by
   Crunch and improvements to the new Kafka Streams-based pipeline executor.

## Health report:
   Work proceeds apace to improve what Crunch does well (executing large and
   complex MapReduce pipelines), but as MapReduce gradually declines in
   use and is replaced by Apache Spark as the execution engine of choice, we
   expect that patches will come in more slowly and be primarily focused on
   fixing bugs as opposed to adding new functionality.

## PMC changes:

 - Currently 12 PMC members.

## Description:
   Apache Crunch is a Java library for writing, testing, and running
   MapReduce and Apache Spark pipelines on Apache Hadoop.

## Issues:
   There are no issues requiring board attention at this time.

## Activity:
   There has been the normal bug fixing work after our most recent release
   in May, along with some new work to explore using Apache Kafka as a data
   source in Crunch pipelines that should make a good foundation for our
   next major release.

## Health report:
   Things are generally good: the core library does what it was designed to
   reasonably well, bugs are reported and addressed in a timely manner, and
   we have some new and interesting development avenues to explore in leveraging
   Crunch as a way of doing simplified stream processing without requiring the
   deployment of more heavyweight frameworks like Apache Storm or Apache Spark's
   streaming engine.

report there have been 32 new issues logged in Jira, with 27 of them being
closed in that time.

Similar to the previous board report, the majority of recent work has been
focused on minor improvements and bug fixes.

There was a minor hiccup in releasing version 0.11.0, when the released maven
artifacts were correctly pushed to Nexus, but not synced to Maven Central. This
was noticed by a user (reported on the user mailing list), and turned out to
be an infrastructure issue resolved in INFRA-8333.

16 Apr 2014 [Josh Wills / Roy]

Apache Crunch is a Java library for writing, testing, and running
MapReduce pipelines on Apache Hadoop.

General:
The Crunch community has been steadily fixing issues for the last
quarter, with 48 issues filed and fixed since the last release in December
2013, which means it's just about time for a new release. Since our
last report we dramatically improved the quality and depth of the user
guide [1] and getting started information [2] for the project on our website,
and we have a proposal for the board to approve a new PMC chair for the
project. We have also added one new PMC member since our last report.

15 Jan 2014 [Josh Wills / Greg]

Apache Crunch is a Java library for writing, testing, and running
MapReduce pipelines on Apache Hadoop.

General:
The Crunch community had a large number of releases in the last
quarter, primarily focused on updating the libraries to work
against the major releases of Apache Hadoop (2.2.0) and Apache HBase
(0.96) that came out in the past quarter. 42 issues were created and
40 issues were resolved over this period, including bug fixes,
new features, and support for a new Hadoop-based execution engine
that is currently in the incubator, Apache Spark (incubating).

Releases:
The 0.9.0 release was made on December 17th, 2013.
The 0.8.2 release was made on December 17th, 2013.
The 0.8.1 release was made on November 20th, 2013.

16 Oct 2013 [Josh Wills / Shane]

Apache Crunch is a Java library for writing, testing, and running
MapReduce pipelines on Apache Hadoop.

General:
The Crunch community continues to develop features and fix bugs
at a healthy pace: there are currently 28 JIRA issues that have been
resolved since the 0.7.0 release, with input from 10 different contributors.
Given our current rate of issue resolution, I believe that the community
will vote to create a new release within the next few weeks.

Releases:
The 0.7.0 release was made on July 25, 2013.
The 0.6.0 release was made on May 13th, 2013.

Community:
Chao Shi was added to the PMC on August 20th, 2013, our first new
PMC member since leaving the Incubator.
Micah Whitacre was added as a committer on July 11th, 2013.

17 Jul 2013 [Josh Wills / Greg]

Apache Crunch is a Java library for writing, testing, and running
MapReduce pipelines on Apache Hadoop.

Issues:
There are no issues requiring board attention at this time.

Releases:
We made one release last quarter, version 0.6.0 on May 13th, 2013.
Work is currently underway on version 0.7.0.

Community:
The Crunch PMC voted to add Micah Whitacre as a committer on the
project and he has accepted. There have been no changes to the PMC
since becoming a TLP in February 2013.

Activity on the development list has been at a steady cadence for the last
quarter, with new issues and patches being submitted by a diverse set of
new and veteran contributors almost every day.

Eli Collins gave a talk about using the Crunch libraries with Apache Avro
to build applications on top of Apache Hadoop at QCon in June 2013. [1]

15 May 2013 [Josh Wills / Jim]

Apache Crunch is a Java library for writing, testing, and running
MapReduce pipelines on Apache Hadoop.

Issues:
There are no issues requiring board attention at this time.

Releases:
We are currently holding a vote for our 0.6.0 release, our first
release since leaving the incubator at the end of February. We have
received three +1 votes for the current release candidate from PMC members
and expect the vote to pass when voting closes in a couple of days.

Community & Development:
No new PMC members or committers have been added since our report last
month, when we added two new committers.

We had a tough month on the dev list, primarily due to a strange and
somewhat random Java compiler error that caused Crunch builds to
fail consistently in some environments but not others, which was
frustrating to debug and caused lots of Jenkins failures. We believe
that we have resolved these issues with the latest release candidate
and are looking forward to our next release and getting back to working
on new features and bug fixes for our next release.

17 Apr 2013 [Josh Wills / Ross]

Apache Crunch is a Java library for writing, testing, and running
MapReduce pipelines on Apache Hadoop.

ISSUES
* There are no issues to raise with the board.

COMMUNITY
* We added two new committers to the Crunch project since our last board
 report. These are our first new committers since graduation.
* Activity on the dev mailing list is stable and healthy. The user mailing
 list saw some questions from new users and roughly the same number of
 threads, but the overall volume of messages fell by about half.
* We completed an overhaul of the Crunch website and added an About page.
* Two Crunch PMC members are working on third-party projects that build on
 Crunch. Cloudera ML [1] integrates Apache Hive, Apache Mahout, and Crunch
 to perform data preparation and model evaluation tasks on Apache Hadoop.
 Also, work began to integrate Crunch with ElasticSearch's Hadoop
 libraries. [2]

RELEASES
* No new releases since our February 2013 release just before graduation.
 We expect to perform our first TLP release within the next few weeks.

Apache Crunch is a Java library for writing, testing, and running
MapReduce pipelines on Apache Hadoop.

MILESTONES
We completed our most recent release (0.5.0-incubating) on 2/19/13,
just before we left the Incubator.

ACTIVITY
* Most of the Incubator transfer procedures have been completed.
 We still have our old release directory at the Incubator, but
 we plan to update that upon our next release.
* The PMC is currently voting on a set of bylaws for the project
 modeled after the bylaws of the Apache Zookeeper project with
 some small tweaks based on the bylaws of the Apache Pig project.
* Nine JIRAs have been resolved since our most recent release,
 primarily small bug fixes. One major feature was adding the
 ability to start and monitor a MapReduce pipeline
 asynchronously, which was contributed by a new developer on
 the project.

COMMUNITY
* 50 subscribers to the dev mailing list, 62 subscribers to the
 user mailing list.
* There have been no changes to the PMC or committer composition
 since our recent graduation, although the PMC is currently
 holding a vote on adding two new committers.
* The user mailing list has seen small but steady traffic in the
 form of questions and requests from Crunch users.

INFRASTRUCTURE
* The major TLP creation tasks are completed, but we have one
 outstanding issue from the move from the Incubator: our
 github mirror hasn't been updated to reflect the new repo
 name. This is tracked in INFRA-5933.
* The website has been updated to reflect the project's new
 status as a TLP.

LEGAL
No known issues.

BRANDING
No known issues.

Crunch is a Java library for writing, testing, and running pipelines of MapReduce
jobs on Apache Hadoop.

Crunch has been incubating since 2012-05-26.

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

  * None


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

  * Nothing that currently requires IPMC attention.


How has the community developed since the last report?

The Apache Crunch development team has released version 0.4.0-incubating
in November, the second release at the Apache Incubator. We have worked
with the Apache BigTop project and our release is now part of Apache
BigTop 0.5.0. For our next release, we have discussed and agreed on some
large-scale API cleanup and implemented the necessary changes.

We have performed the podling name search - the name Apache Crunch has
been approved by the trademarks team. This has been our last blocker for
graduation, we have already started a vote on a graduation resolution
within the community and expect to start the vote on incubator-general in
February.

Development activity around Christmas has been a bit lower than usual but
is now picking up again. There has been a significant increase in traffic
on crunch-user; it is great to see that more and more users show up, file
bug reports and contribute patches or test cases.


How has the project developed since the last report?

 - 53 issues were created on the Crunch JIRA in November
   to January, 39 issues have been resolved
 - crunch-dev has seen 615 emails in the reporting period,
   while 126 emails were posted to crunch-user

Crunch is a Java library for writing, testing, and running pipelines
of MapReduce jobs on Apache Hadoop.

Crunch entered incubation on 2012-05-29.

The most important steps towards graduation:

 - Create another release or two
 - Perform the name search

Nothing that currently requires IPMC attention.

Community:

 The Crunch community has been very active and continues to
 grow. Two new committers have been voted in and one existing
 committer has joined the PPMC. As a result, Crunch now has 10
 committers from 7 different organizations.

 We have created our first release in September and have published
 a website using the Apache CMS a few days later. Our second
 release will follow in November.

Development:

 - 76 issues were created on the Crunch JIRA in August to October,
   70 of those were resolved.
 - crunch-dev has been active: 922 emails in the reporting period
 - Apache CMS and ReviewBoard for Crunch are up and running
 - All ICLAs are in place, including those for the new committers

Crunch is a Java library for writing, testing, and running pipelines of
MapReduce jobs on Apache Hadoop.

Crunch entered incubation on 2012-05-29.

The most important steps towards graduation:

 - Infrastructure setup (CMS for the Crunch website)
 - Add new committers
 - Create a release

Nothing that currently requires IPMC attention.

Community:

 The Crunch developer community continue to grow. The project
 received code submissions from six new developers representing
 five distinct organizations in the month of July. One of the new
 developers made such substantial contributions to the design
 and testability of the Crunch code base that the PPMC voted
 to add him as a committer, increasing the number of distinct
 organizations on the committer list from four to five. We look
 forward to adding new committers from our pool contributors, and
 also added documentation to the wiki to explain to new contributors
 how to get started with the project.

Development:

 - 29 issues were created on the Crunch JIRA in the month of July,
   23 of those were resolved.
 - All ICLAs are in place, including the one for the committer the project
   just added.
 - Cloudera submitted the software grant documents to the Apache
   Secretary on 2012-07-11, and the Secretary registered the grant
   the same day.
 - crunch-dev has been active: 308 emails on the list in July.

Crunch is a Java library for writing, testing, and running pipelines of
MapReduce jobs on Apache Hadoop.

Crunch entered incubation on May 27, 2012.

The most important steps towards graduation:

 - Infrastructure setup (JIRA, Confluence, etc.)
 - CCLA licensing of the existing Crunch code
 - Adding new contributors
 - Creating a release

Nothing that currently requires IPMC attention.

Community:

 The developer mailing list has been very active with bug fixes, new
 features, and discussions of infrastructure setup and project policies,
 both from the existing committers and other developers with an interest in
 the project. The first patch from a non-committer is currently being
 prepared for submission: the code is written, but we were blocking on
 getting JIRA setup so that the copyright on the code could cleanly be
 assigned to the ASF. The JIRA issues were resolved earlier this week.

 All ICLAs are in place. Cloudera has gathered all of the copyright
 assignments for the existing Crunch code from non-Cloudera developers
 and is preparing the CCLA to assign the copyrights on the existing Crunch
 code to the ASF.

Development:

 The 15 commits on the project this month were primarily for documentation
 and bug fixes, although we are evaluating two larger patches that bring
 additional functionality to the library: 1) adding map-side joins and
 2) supporting interactive pipeline creation and execution via the Scala REPL.
