DRAT

16 May 2018 [Chris Mattmann / Roman]

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

21 Mar 2018 [Chris Mattmann]

## Description:
- Apache DRAT is a distributed, parallelized (Map Reduce) wrapper around
 Apache RAT™ and other code auditing tools to allow it to complete on large
 code repositories of multiple file types.

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

## Activity:
- Philipp Ottlinger was elected to the DRAT PMC and as a committer
- The new DRAT website is up and going! http://drat.apache.org thanks to
 Nipurn, Shivika, Wayne, and Philipp for all the hard work
- there is increasing activity surrounding people trying to use DRAT with a
 lot of comments and potential bugs and issues to fix in various
 environments.
- Chris Mattmann registered for GSoC 2018 as a mentor and posted several
 issues in the DRAT Github and tagged them with gsoc and gsoc2018 labels
- one of the issues https://github.com/apache/drat/issues/113 already has
 interest


## Health report:
- Still want to turn our attention to getting a full ASF scan of DRAT over the
 Github/Gitbox repositories for ASF projects as a start.
- GSOC 2018 will help with attracting more contributors (already doing so in
 #113)

## PMC changes:

- Currently 11 PMC members.
- Philipp Ottlinger was added to the DRAT PMC and as a committer on
 2018-02-27

## Committer base changes:

- Currently 11 committers.
- Philipp Ottlinger was added to the DRAT PMC and as a committer on
 2018-02-27

## Releases:

- Working towards a 1.0 release still. Hopefully in the next quarter.

## Mailing list activity:

- Mailing list subscriptions remain stable. There hasn't been as much mail
 sent (about half as much). I think folks just were focused on getting the
 website going, and I think the next step of running DRAT over all the ASF
 repos weekly will generate a lot of traffic. Also I think making a first
 release will also do that. Finally GSOC 2018 will likely generate more
 mailing list traffic as well.

## Description:
 - Apache DRAT is a distributed, parallelized (Map Reduce) wrapper around
   Apache RAT™ and other code auditing tools to allow it to complete on large
   code repositories of multiple file types.

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

## Activity:
 - Phil Otilinger put together a draft web site for us up at
   http://drat.apache.org/
 - Nipurn Doshi and Shivika Thapur put together another draft at
   PR #110 here https://s.apache.org/bQss
   - currently working on getting this to be the main DRAT website, by
     updating content


## Health report:
 - We have had bug reports from a community member who may be a good candidate
   for the PMC.
 - We’ve had website development from two community members who are not yet
   PMC or committers and they may also be good candidates.
  - Now that we have our demo VM up, we will turn our attention to getting the
    weekly Apache reports out there for all of ASF Github. We just need to
    write some scripts to get this done. Hopefully by next quarter and its
    report.

## PMC changes:

 - Currently 10 PMC members.
 - No new PMC members added in the last 3 months

## Committer base changes:

 - Currently 10 committers.
 - No new changes to the committer base since last report.

## Releases:

 - None as of yet, but hopefully will release a 1.0 soon once the ASF weekly
   report is up.

## Mailing list activity:

 - Mailing list subscriptions remain stable. Increasing amount of mail coming
   for discussions surrounding The website, setting up the VM and working with
   infra, and various bug fixes related to DRAT and OODT that came out of
   standing up the demo.

## Description:
 - Apache DRAT is a distributed, parallelized (Map Reduce) wrapper
 around Apache RAT™ and other code auditing tools to allow it to
 complete on large code repositories of multiple file types.

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

## Activity:
 1. Working on design of DRAT website, can be seen here in drat #98 [1]
 2. Stood up DRAT VM (see INFRA-15304 [2]) and demo service of DRAT proteus,
    here: https://drat.apache.org/demo/ (evaluate one repo at a time), and
    here: https://drat.apache.org/asfgit/ (generated weekly, full DRAT runs
          and statistics for ALL of the ASF git repositories. Thanks to Chris
          Lambertus and infra for helping us get going there.
 3. In standing up DRAT on Ubuntu, we ran into some Apache OODT bugs in the
    recent 1.2 release, and are working with Apache OODT to roll a 1.2.1 that
    fixes these bugs. In addition we were able to harden DRAT a bit more as
    described in DRAT #100 [3] and #101 [4].

## Health report:
 - We've had some engagement from Wayne Burke who started a thread to figure
   out whether or not we wanted to create a #drat channel in ASF slack.
   Mattmann went ahead and created it after the thread on dev@drat.
 - Shivika Thapar and Nipurn Doshi are working on the website design as
   described in DRAT #98 [1].
 - Thejan Wijesinghe from Apache Tika's GSOC 2017 project has began testing
   DRAT and is filing tickets (e.g., DRAT #104 [5].
 - Phil Ottlinger of the Creadur community is checking out DRAT and wants to
   help with the website.
 - The project's activity is ramping up, but still remains a small set of
   folks working on it.

## PMC changes:

 - Currently 10 PMC members.
 - No new PMC members added in the last 3 months

## Committer base changes:

 - Currently 10 committers.
 - No changes (the PMC was established in the last 3 months)

## Releases:

 - None yet

## Mailing list activity:

 - More emails being sent to the dev list, including commits, and issue
   activity from Github. A thread was started to discuss website development
   that linked to several Github issues. Now that we have our Proteus demo
   up at https://drat.apache.org/demo/, we expect more folks to check out
   and try DRAT. We also will begin shortly publishing weekly runs of Apache
   DRAT against all ASF Git repos at https://drat.apache.org/asfgit/. Both of
   these will likely generate more mailing list activity.
