Terminate the Apache C++ Standard Library Project

 WHEREAS, the Board of Directors deems it no longer in the best
 interest of the Foundation to continue the Apache C++ Standard
 Library project due to inactivity

 NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Apache C++ Standard Library
 project is hereby terminated; and be it further

 RESOLVED, that the Attic PMC be and hereby is tasked with
 oversight over the software currently maintained by the Apache
 C++ Standard Library Project; and be it further

 RESOLVED, that the office of "Vice President, Apache C++ Standard
 Library" is hereby terminated; and be it further

 RESOLVED, that the Apache C++ Standard Library PMC is hereby
 terminated.

 Special Order 7A, Terminate the Apache C++ Standard Library
 Project, was approved by Unanimous Vote of the directors
 present.

19 Jun 2013 [Jim Jagielski]

No report was submitted.

There was talk of moving this project to the Attic, but this was premature and Jim was appointed PMC chair by the board. At end of May, Jim announced he would step down. Christopher Bergstrom was nominated to be the new PMC chair. Christopher Bergstrom was elected PMC and committer, but never got an Apache id. He has his own fork elsewhere. So it's strange to elect him PMC chair. It doesn't seem like the project is viable. AI: Jim prepare a resolution to move the project to the Attic.

C++ will report next month

20 Feb 2013 [Jim Jagielski]

The Apache C++ Standard Library Project aims to provide an ALv2-licensed
system standard C++ library suite.

Releases:

 None.

Development:

 Since last report, activity has slowed down quite a bit. I expect partly
 this is due to simple timing (around the end-of-year holidays), and
 I plan to try to encourage a ramp-up of development with some emails.

Community:

 No changes.

We have no issues that require board attention.

21 Nov 2012 [Jim Jagielski]

DESCRIPTION

Apache C++ Standard Library Project is a collection of functions
designed to implement a standard C++ library.

RELEASES

* No releases yet.

CURRENT ACTIVITY

* Activity has really ramped up over the last several months.
 We are seeing renewed development and interest in the project
 and at the present time, I see no reason not to allow the
 project to continue.

COMMUNITY

* No new committers or PMC members

ISSUES

* There are no issues requiring board attention at this time.

19 Sep 2012 [Jim Jagielski]

DESCRIPTION

Apache STDCXX is a collection of algorithms, containers, iterators,
and other fundamental components of every piece of software, implemented
as C++ classes, templates, and functions essential for writing C++ programs.

RELEASES

* There has not been a release of stdcxx since 2008. Renewed work is
 being done on the 4.2.x and 4.3.x branches.

CURRENT ACTIVITY

* After a "gentle" nudge by the current chair, we've seen renewed activity
 on the mailing list. In particular, a specific BUGZ entry (STDCXX-1056)
 has seen a lot of discussion.

* There was some licensing FUD discussed on the list, mostly to promote
 a "rationale" for moving the project elsewhere and/or releasing
 stdcxx under a different license. This has (hopefully) been clarified.

* Branching and development policies are being discussed on the
 mailing list.

* Moving to git, as a way to draw in more potential developers
 was suggested, but as of yet there is no decision on whether
 to follow through with it.

COMMUNITY

* Stefan Teleman (steleman@apache.org) was added to the PMC in July

ISSUES

* There are no issues requiring board attention at this time.

15 Aug 2012 [Jim Jagielski]

No report was submitted.

20 Jun 2012 [Jim Jagielski]

No report was submitted.

There is minor work being done. The project does not have the energy that the board expected when the decision was taken to keep it in place. Recommend to keep the status quo, normal status reporting. But if nothing else changes, reconsider moving this project to the Attic.

16 May 2012 [Jim Jagielski]

Jim to provide verbal report at meeting.

Jim provided a verbal report: No activity on dev mailing list; nothing substantial on the private mailing list. Some folks expressed interest in continuing the project but are unwilling to submit ICLAs. The project is headed for the attic if nothing changes.

18 Apr 2012

Change the Apache C++ Standard Library Project Chair

 WHEREAS, the Board of Directors heretofore appointed Martin Sebor
 to the office of Vice President, Apache C++ Standard Library, and

 WHEREAS, the Board of Directors is of the opinion that a new chair
 is required;

 NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that Martin Sebor is relieved and
 discharged from the duties and responsibilities of the office
 of Vice President, Apache C++ Standard Library, and

 BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that Jim Jagielski be and hereby is
 appointed to the office of Vice President, Apache C++ Standard Library,
 to serve in accordance with and subject to the direction of the
 Board of Directors and the Bylaws of the Foundation until
 death, resignation, retirement, removal or disqualification, or
 until a successor is appointed.

 Special Order 7I, Change the Apache C++ Standard Library
 Project Chair, was approved by Unanimous Vote of the directors
 present.

18 Apr 2012 [Martin Sebor / Greg]

No report was submitted.

Martin seems to be unwilling to perform the duties of PMC chair. While the PMC is reforming, the chair needs to be responsive to the board.

21 Mar 2012 [Martin Sebor / Doug]

Last month, stdcxx added three committers/PMC members. One sent in his
CLA and and an account for him was created. The other two are in the
process of getting their CLAs signed by their employers.  Beyond that,
we have nothing to report.  All stdcxx committers are busy with our
day jobs and have only limited time to spend on the project. Requiring
reports on a monthly basis won't help increase the activity of the
project. On the contrary, since it takes away from the little time we
have to contribute it is likely to decrease it.

approved, and expect a report next month.

15 Feb 2012 [Martin Sebor / Larry]

Notable changes since previous report (October 2011):

A vote to move stdcxx to the Attic failed. The majority of stdcxx
contributors voted in favor of continuing to maintain the project.
Several inactive committers stepped up to help with the project.

A new build and test infrastructure has been set up to verify
the correctness and portability of code changes:

* gcc/Ubuntu Linux:
 https://builds.apache.org/job/stdcxx-4.2.2-12d-ubuntu/

* Sun C++/Solaris:
 https://builds.apache.org/job/stdcxx-4.2.2-15s-solaris/

A stdcxx contributor submitted a large number of issues and patches
addressing a number of known and new defects.

The stdcxx PMC voted to grant three contributors commit permissions
to the stdcxx code repository and add them to the PMC.

Bill Rowe reports that the PMC voted to close the project but that doesn't reflect the will of the community. There are still several people who want to continue the project. Bill volunteered to help reinvigorate the project.

24 Jan 2012 [Martin Sebor / Sam]

No report was submitted. Attic resolution expected next month.

21 Dec 2011 [Martin Sebor / Greg]

No report was submitted. The C++ Standard Library is destined for the Attic by general consensus of the PMC members who responded to an inquiry.

16 Nov 2011 [Martin Sebor / Sam]

No report received.

Jim's Action Item to assist project's move into the attic was reinstated from the August meeting.

17 Aug 2011 [Martin Sebor / Jim]

Notable changes since previous report (May 2011):

There have been no changes to Apache stdcxx. An interested contributor
seems to have opted to set up a fork of stdcxx at www.spi-inc.org (or
is in the process of doing so).

It appears that this project is dormant and should move to the attic.

AI Jim: assist the project in the transition.

19 May 2011 [Martin Sebor / Greg]

 Notable changes since previous report (February 2011):

 No changes. Stdcxx continues to be dormant. There was a flurry of emails
 on the stdcxx-dev list suggesting continued interest from the same two
 parties (ARM and Sun) but no new work.

16 Feb 2011 [Martin Sebor / Noirin]

 Notable changes since previous report (November 2010):

 Stdcxx continues to be dormant. All but one committer have moved on
 to other projects. The only remaining committer (the VP of the
 project) is too busy with his day job to make even small changes,
 or to put out the long-awaited patch release, stdcxx 4.2.2.

 A number of users and organizations have been using the project
 and expressed interest in contributing to it. Several submitted
 patches, others have offered help with the project build and test
 infrastructure. Unfortunately, since no committer is available to
 review patches and guide the contributors through the ASF process
 to enable them to gain commit privileges there seems to be little
 hope of reviving stdcxx.

 A possible solution that would allow contributions to resume is
 to grant commit privileges to the handful of contributors who have
 already submitted some patches or expressed serious interest in
 contributing going forward.

 Another alternative is to move stdcxx to a repository outside
 of ASF such as SPI (http://www.spi-inc.org/) where interested
 developers could start committing changes on their own right away,
 without going through the "training" process. This seems to the
 preferred solution among at least some of the interested users.

 Are there any other options?

Future plans:

 Unless the issue with contributions can be resolved in the next
 quarter I suggest to retire the project.

The project looks like it's not able to manage itself as an Apache project. No releases, no patches being reviewed, no assistance to prospective committers in the community.

Action item: Doug follow up with the project.

17 Nov 2010 [Martin Sebor / Jim]

 Notable changes since previous report (September 2010):

 No project activity since the last report.

Future plans:

 I'm considering stepping down as chair of stdcxx. I haven't had
 time to spend on the project or to help interested contributors
 become committers. Unless another committer steps up willing to
 take on the responsibility stdcxx might need to be retired.

22 Sep 2010 [Martin Sebor / Henri]

This is a delayed report (by 1 month).

Notable changes since previous report (May 2010):

 Very little project activity since the last report. No significant
 issues were reported, some some discussion took place on the dev
 list. An external contributor has submitted a patch of moderate
 size for review.

 No new committers or PMC members have been added.

 Sun C++ has started shipping last stable release of stdcxx, 4.2.1.

Future plans:

 Release the stdcxx 4.2.2 bugfix update. Attempt to increase project
 activity and find and set up an alternate build and test infrastructure.

18 Aug 2010 [Martin Sebor / Jim]

Report postponed to next meeting.

19 May 2010 [Martin Sebor / Doug]

 Notable changes since previous report (February 2010):

 There has been virtually no project activity since the last report.
 Only a handful issues were reported, some privately to the VP of
 the project. No existing issues have been resolved.

 No new committers or PMC members have been added.

 The Sun KDE project uses and ships (or plans to ship) the last stable
 release of stdcxx, 4.2.1, with KDE as the default implementation of
 the C++ Standard Library. There is interest in continuing to do so
 but no KDE volunteers have stepped up so far to help with stdcxx.

Future plans:

 Release the stdcxx 4.2.2 bugfix update. Attempt to increase project
 activity and find and set up an alternate build and test infrastructure.

Doug reported back that Martin clarified some things in this report: while he encourages users to post publicly, he helps them even when they do not. He mentioned the private exchange so that the lack of traffic on the public list would not be misinterpreted as a lack of users. He also clarified that the original sponsor of the project had provided build servers and other resources for continuous testing. These services have since been discontinued, and they are looking for alternate ways to address this need.

17 Feb 2010 [Martin Sebor / Jim]

 Notable changes since previous report (November 2009):

 Stdcxx continues to be very quiet to the point of dormancy.

 No new committers or PMC members have been added.

 Rogue Wave has discontinued running nightly builds which has made
 portability testing exceedingly difficult. Since most 4.2.2 changes
 were tested before the shutdown, this maintenance update can be
 released without much further testing. Unless an alternate multi-
 platform build and infrastructure is set up future releases might
 need to focus on a much more limited set of platforms (such FreeBSD,
 Linux, Solaris, and Windows).

Future plans:

 Release the stdcxx 4.2.2 bugfix update. Attempt to increase project
 activity and find and set up an alternate build and test infrastructure.

18 Nov 2009 [Martin Sebor / Geir]

 Notable changes since previous report (August 2009):

 All stdcxx activity, including mailing list traffic and source code
 repository commits, continues to be very low.

Future plans:

 Release the stdcxx 4.2.2 bugfix update. Attempt to increase project
 activity to get help with providing experimental support for C++ 0x
 in stdcxx 4.3.0, and complete support in 5.0. Migrate nightly build
 and test infrastructure away from Rogue Wave based resources.

19 Aug 2009 [Martin Sebor / Brett]

 Notable changes since previous report (May 2009):

 Stdcxx continues to be very quiet with only a handful of minor bug
 fixes having been committed in this period.

Future plans:

 Put out the delayed stdcxx 4.2.2 release and resume work on adding
 experimental support for C++ 0x in stdcxx 4.3.0, with complete support
 expected in 5.0. Change nightly testing infrastructure to avoid relying
 on Rogue Wave resources.

20 May 2009 [Martin Sebor / Bertrand]

 Notable changes since previous report (February 2009):

 Project activity is still very low.  Only a handful of minor issues
 have been reported and resolved.

 Due to budgetary/resource constraints, Rogue Wave has abandoned all
 its support for the project and either laid off or reassigned stdcxx
 engineers.  This will have implications for testing the code on non
 mainstream platforms.  Nightly testing infrastructure will need to
 be reimplemented so as to avoid relying on Rogue Wave resources.

Future plans:

 Continue to work toward the bug fix stdcxx 4.2.2 release and on adding
 experimental support for C++ 0x in stdcxx 4.3.0 and complete support in
 5.0.  Change nightly testing infrastructure to avoid relying on Rogue
 Wave resources.

Looks like the infrastructure-hosted build schema may arrive just in time

18 Feb 2009 [Martin Sebor / Bill]

 Notable changes since the last report (November 2008):

 Project activity continues to be very low. A handful of minor
 issues have been reported by users and resolved by the team.

Future plans:

 Continue to work toward the release of stdcxx 4.2.2 and on
 implementing C++ 0x. The plan is to enable experimental
 support for a subset of C++ 0x in 4.3.0, and full support
 in 5.0,0.

19 Nov 2008 [Martin Sebor / Greg]

 Notable changes since the last report (August 2008):

 Project activity has been low over the last three months due
 to several committers having been busy with other work. The
 team has mostly been fixing bugs; little progress has been
 made on new C++ 0x features. In September, the C++ committee
 voted to publish the C++ 0x draft standard for international
 ballot. The final C++ Standard can be expected to be published
 withing a year to two of the completion of the ballot, with
 only bug fixes but no other significant changes.

20 Aug 2008 [Martin Sebor / Jim]

 Notable changes since the last report (May 2008):

 The release schedule for the next C++ standard, informally known
 as C++ 0x, has changed. The new standard is now expected to be
 ratified sometime in 2011 rather than by the end of this decade
 as originally planned. The team's progress on the implementation
 of the new C++ standard features has been slow in part due to
 ongoing changes to the specification and in part due to the limited
 availability of the new core C++ features in existing compilers,
 or their instability.

 of 23 small enhancements and fixes 110 bugs. In March, we attended
 the interesting Microsoft Open Source Software Labs meeting in
 Redmond.

This is the third stdcxx Board report since graduating on 11/15.
Starting with next report we will be reporting on a quarterly
schedule.

Notable changes since the last report (2008/1):

 The project activity has picked up quite a bit since the January
 report, both in terms of the number of commits as well as on the
 mailing lists. Migration out of Incubator and into TLP (INFRA-1421)
 has been completed. Some progress has been made on redesigning and
 reimplementing the project site using Apache Forrest (STDCXX-686).

BIS Export Control Classification:

 Apache C++ Standard Library contains no encryption source code nor
 does it make use of any third party encryption software.

Future plans:

 We are making progress, albeit slowly, toward the 4.2.1 release.
 The expected timeframe for this maintenance release is February to
 March 2008. Next week we look forward to attending the Microsoft
 Open Source Software Labs meeting in Redmond.

Community:

 The active community remains small and dominated by contributors
 from Rogue Wave, despite efforts to reach out to other developers.

16 Jan 2008 [Martin Sebor / Jim]

This is the second stdcxx Board report since graduating on 11/15.

Notable changes since the last report (2007/12):

 Owing to the holidays the project activity has been on the low side
 since the last report. Development list activity was down by about
 37% in comparison to November, Subversion commits by 43%.

 While little progress has been made so far on INFRA-1421 to move
 stdcxx out of the incubator and to its TLP destination a move of
 the Subversion repository is being planned for Saturday 1/12 (see
 INFRA-1423). The remaining subtasks are still waiting to be picked
 up by volunteers with sufficient permissions.

Future plans:

 Continuing to work toward a maintenance release for 4.2.0 expected
 in the February to March 2008 timeframe. A discussion has begun on
 reimplementing the stdcxx web site to use Apache Forrest or some
 similar authoring tool (STDCXX-686).

This is the first stdcxx Board report since graduating on 11/15.

Notable changes since exiting the Incubator:

 11/29 voted in new committer, Travis Vitek
 11/30 requested INFRA to migrate stdcxx to TLP:
       http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-1421

Future plans:

  Currently working toward a maintenance release for 4.2.0 expected
  in the February to March 2008 timeframe. This will be the first
  release to formally follow the new release process and version
  policy, a document that's currently being finalized on stdcxx-dev.
  Development of a large number of new features specified by the
  upcoming C++ 0x standard (expected to be ratified by the end of
  the decade) is being planned for 4.3 (compatible enhancements)
  and 5.0 (breaking changes), and is expected to commence shortly.

''iPMC Comments:''
 * jukka: I'm qurious about http://incubator.apache.org/stdcxx/#committers.
Why some people are following CTR and others RTC? Also, the comment
"committers in italics do not have a signed Contributor License Agreement on
file" doesn't make sense. You can't be a committer without a CLA on file.

16 Aug 2006

Stdcxx status report for the calendar quarter ending in 8/2006:

This is the fourth quarterly report for stdcxx.

The stdcxx community is currently in the process of voting in a new
committer, Farid Zaripov. Farid has contributed several important
pieces of the test driver and recently has has been enhancing the test
suite in the area of containers with focus on exception safety. In
addition we are hoping to put Farid's extensive Windows experience to
good use when enhancing our Windows build infrastructure.

The team continues to make progress migrating the Rogue Wave C++
Standard Library test harness and test suite to the Apache stdcxx test
driver: a total of 117 of the 329 tests have been migrated so far.

The plan for the next three months is to continue migrating the test
suite, extend our support to include additional platforms such as IBM
z/OS, Cray UNICOS, and others, and to enhance our implementation with
the C++ Standard Library extensions described in the Technical Report
on C++ Library Extensions. Recently we have also been in discussions
with Tuscany developers about their adoption of stdcxx.  We look
forward to working with the team to make this as smooth as possible.

Finally, we plan to continue increase the visibility of the project
and attract more developers to the project and to further increase the
diversity of the community.

18 Jan 2006

Stdcxx status report for the calendar quarter ending in 12/2005:

This is the second quarterly report for stdcxx.

The stdcxx community has spent the last three months working toward version
4.1.3 of the project. The major accomplishments thus far include the
completion of the test suite driver (STDCXX-4), the migration of a large
number (but not all) of stdcxx tests from the Rogue C++ Standard Library
test suite to this driver and to the ASF Subversion repository (STDCXX-4),
and the creation of a Windows configuration and build infrastructure
(STDCXX-5, STDCXX-13).

The successful completion of these objectives marks an important milestone
for the stdcxx project. To facilitate the migration of existing users of the
Rogue Wave C++ Standard Library to stdcxx, the stdcxx community is currently
in the process of releasing version 4.1.3 of the project. This release has
been scheduled to coincide with the release of the Rogue Wave C++ Standard
Library 4.1.3 on which stdcxx is based. A vote to release stdcxx 4.1.3 is
under way on stdcxx-dev.

In other news, the stdcxx PPMC recently voted to extend an offer of
committership to Anton Pevtsov. Anton is the author of the Windows build
infrastructure and his help with porting the test suite over the last few
months has been essential. In addition, in preparation for graduation and
the forming of a PMC, the stdcxx PPMC has started to discuss expanding its
membership from the current 5 (including 3 mentors) to involve other active
committers.

Going forward, the most important goals of the growing stdcxx community
continue to be to increase the visibility of the project and further
increase the number as well as diversity of its users, contributors, and
committers, finish porting the stdcxx test suite, and implement a complete
test harness for the project to facilitate automated nightly testing. Other
goals include expanding the set of platforms to Apple Darwin and other
BSD-based operating systems, enhancing support for the C++ Standard Library
extensions described in the (Draft) Technical Report on C++ Library
Extensions.

Stdcxx status report for the calendar quarter ending in 9/2005:

This is the first quarterly report for stdcxx.

Since the  inception of  the stdcxx podling  the stdcxx  community has
substantially completed  the migration of  the project from  the Rogue
Wave infrastructure to the  Apache infrastructure. Notably, the source
code   of  the   library,   the  accompanying   utility  programs,   a
comprehensive set of example programs, as well as the complete project
documentation in HTML have been transferred to Subversion.  All source
files  have  been modified  to  reflect  the  Apache license.   A  bug
tracking database has  been created in Jira and  is being actively and
extensively used  to track issues  and tasks. The  appropriate mailing
lists  have been  created. All  new stdcxx  committers  have submitted
their Contributor License Agreements.

In September the stdcxx development community with the approval of the
Incubator PMC published the first  and final snapshot of the initially
contributed sources, labeled version 4.1.2.

At this time  the stdcxx community is working  toward version 4.1.3 of
the project. The goals of this  effort are to migrate the project test
suite from the Rogue Wave test  harness to the new stdcxx test driver,
to complete the transfer of the  tests from the Rogue Wave source code
repository to  Subversion, and to  complete the implementation  of the
configuration  and build  infrastructure for  Microsoft  Windows.  The
estimated time-frame  for reaching  these goals is  the first  half of
2006.

The objective of the stdcxx community  for the next quarter is to work
on  further  increasing  the  visibility of  the  project,  attracting
additional   contributors,  and  growing   the  active   community  of
developers around it.

28 Jul 2005

stdcxx: Mailing lists have been created, initial accounts have been created
for the stdcxx committers (where CLAs have been received), and Subversion
directories have been created.  Roy has just sent the 'welcome' email to
stdcxx-dev@.  In other words, real progress can be made now.

There was an issue regarding a RogueWave press release regarding STDCXX that
had an unapproved ASF quote in it.  The PRC is following up on this and is
educating folks to ensure that it does not happen again.
