 with different names. Process of approving of the new name
 for the suite of the products is undergoing an internal
 review and approval process.

DLab is a platform for creating self-service, exploratory data science
environments in the cloud using best-of-breed data science tools.

DLab has been incubating since 2018-08-20.

### Three most important unfinished issues to address before graduating:

 1. Come up with a new name for DLab
 2. Extend the amount of committers. The plan here is to participate in
 a number of conferences, starting with ApacheConf in Berlin on October 23,
 EPAM SEC conference in Gansk on SolutionsHub area
 3. After release 2.2 is made, the team will have to do major refactoring
 of the code, updating of product documentation, which might potentially
 slow down the process of releasing version 2.3

### Are there any issues that the IPMC or ASF Board need to be aware of?

 No issues.

### How has the community developed since the last report?

 A new committer is added:
 - Adams Disturber (Andrii Dumych)
 Also awaiting for committer Mykola Bodnar, pending account creation. ICLA
 files are signed off and submitted, waiting for Apache ID to be created.

### How has the project developed since the last report?

 Team is actively working on release 2.2 features.
 There will be many new features and conceptual changes introduced in
 upcoming release. We are introducing the concept of projects within DLab,
 which will allow to control permissions for groups of DLab users,
 improve collaboration capabilities.
 Major improvements will be made in terms of GCP platform deployment.
 GCP will support the majority of the features, currently available in
 DLab for AWS and Azure Clouds.
 One of the conceptual features implemented is the ability to provision
 DLab's self-service noe in k8s and being able to integrate with many
 identity providers, supporting OAuth2 and SAML2.0 via Keycloak.

IPMC/Shepherd notes:
 Dave Fisher: DLAB is yet another podling that does not understand that the
            top 3 items to address question is forward looking. The IPMC
            needs to refine the question - English language tenses can be
            subtle. Since MOIN Wiki is going away there is an opportunity
            to do this.

DLab is a platform for creating self-service, exploratory data science
environments in the cloud using best-of-breed data science tools.

DLab has been incubating since 2018-08-20.

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

  1. Execute the SGA between EPAM and the ASF so code can be imported.
  2. Move bug tracking system including project backlog to Apache issue
  tracking system.
  3. Work toward an initial Apache release.

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

  Nothing at this point of time.

How has the community developed since the last report?

  We are not at the stage of building community so far.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 Initial committers have submitted their Apache ICLA, subscribed to all
 mailing lists and created Jira accounts. Functionality added:
  - Administrative Web UI for roles management
  - Fixed libraries installation for RStudio
  - Restrict usage of EC2 instances of certain shapes to different groups
  of users
  - Fixed a bug on MS Azure when instance creation failed because of same
  IP allocation to different instances
  - Added support of Dex authentication
  - Work in progress towards deployment into two VPC’s (SSN and Edge Node
  into one VPC, notebooks and computational resources into separate VPC)
  - Work in progress implementing Java libraries support from WebUI

  Mentors were very responsive and provided a good overview of incubation
  process in general. Helped a lot providing detailed instructions on how
  to get subscribed, submit ICLA application and certainly provided a
  vector for next steps. The team has immediate support and can ask for
  any questions.

     Comments: To give some context regarding the mentor question above,
               I'm employed by the same company as the initial committers
               and have working with them since before the proposal to
               prep them for Apache.

               Currently we're waiting on the SGA (I'm working on pushing it
               through) which is blocking code import. Meanwhile the podling
               is starting to use the mailing list and populating JIRA.
