21 Dec 2016 [Jordan Zimmerman / Chris]

## Description:

- The Apache Curator Java libraries make using Apache ZooKeeper much easier
 and more reliable.

## Issues:

- Curator participated in the "help wanted" project. To date, we've not
 gotten any real help. People don't even bother to subscribe to the mailing
 list. It appears they are just fishing to see if they can pad their CVs.
 So, this isn't a Curator "issue" per se, but I thought I'd take this
 opportunity to report about it.

## Activity:

- Curator activity is normal for this period
- We continue to produce releases, field questions, etc.
- We continue to track releases of Apache ZooKeeper and try to stay current
 with it

## Health report:

- Curator is a healthy, active project. We have consistent, quality input
 from the community and Curator usage continues to grow.
- I've learned that Facebook will be standardizing on Apache Curator as its
 primary ZooKeeper client - good news!
- Curator's health is intimately tied to Apache ZooKeeper and, from our
 perspective, Apache ZooKeeper is a very healthy project
- Curator could use 1 or 2 more active committers. A few individuals have
 been identified and, assuming they continue to contribute, votes can take
 place

## PMC changes:

- Currently 11 PMC members.
- No new PMC members added in the last 3 months

No report was submitted.

21 Jan 2015 [Jordan Zimmerman / Ross]

Please accept my apology for the tardiness of this report.

The Apache Curator Java libraries make using Apache ZooKeeper much easier and
more reliable.

Community
=========
The Curator community is active and healthy. We have regular and active
participation on the mailing list, Jira and github.

Adoption continues to grow. Notably: Apache Hive and Apache Yarn
are now using Curator.

Development
===========
Since our last report Curator has had two successful releases by different
build managers.

Issues for board consideration
==============================
None currently

17 Dec 2014 [Jordan Zimmerman / Rich]

No report was submitted.

17 Sep 2014 [Jordan Zimmerman / Jim]

The Apache Curator Java libraries make using Apache ZooKeeper much easier and
more reliable.

Community
=========
* Since our last report Curator has added two new committers, Cameron MacKenzie
and Scott Blum. They have both been very active and the project has benefited
greatly from them.

* Numerous online articles that mention Curator have been written:
https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/CURATOR/Third+Party+Articles

Development
===========
* Several successful releases have occurred since the last report

* Curator's adoption continues to grow:

18 Jun 2014 [Jordan Zimmerman / Rich]

The Apache Curator Java libraries make using Apache ZooKeeper much
easier and more reliable.

Project Status
===========
Since the last report, there have been several successful releases.
2.5.0 is the latest release.

Community
========
The Curator community continues to grow. This is a good time to report
on how Curator has been integrated in the larger ZooKeeper community.

* Curator is a component in other open source projects including
Apache Storm, Metamarkets Druid, Apache Drill, Apache Oozie, Apache
Spark, Spring SD, and many, many more.

* There have been dozens of articles written either about or
mentioning Apache Curator.

* According to Ohloh, there have been 11 contributors to the project

Issues
=====
In the last report, it was mentioned that Curator only has 1 active
committer. I think this was a bit misleading. Curator has had no
problems getting votes for releases. Many people contribute to the
development of Curator. The main issue is that stewardship of Curator
falls mainly on me (Jordan Zimmerman). The good news is that I've been
mentoring others and am very close to getting at least one and
possibly two more committers who will be active stewards of Curator. I
hope to have this by the next report.

19 Mar 2014 [Jordan Zimmerman / Shane]

Project Status
==============
* 2.4.1 maintenance released currently being voted on

Community
=========
* In the past 5 weeks 10 issues were resolved
* Last release: 2.4.0 on Feb 8, 2014
* Curator switched to a Github mirror and will now take Pull
Requests instead of patches

Issues for board consideration
==============================
* Curator continues to have only 1 active committer however
patches/PRs are coming from a good number of unique active users

AI Shane: is there a plan to attract new committers/PMC members?
