Druid

15 Jul 2020 [Gian Merlino / Sam]

## Description

Apache Druid is a high performance real-time analytics database. It is
designed for workflows where low-latency query and ingest are the main
requirements. It implements ingestion, storage, and querying subsystems. Users
interface with Druid through built-in SQL and JSON APIs, as well as
third-party applications.

Druid has an extensive web of connections with other Apache projects: Calcite
for SQL planning, Curator and ZooKeeper for coordination, Kafka and Hadoop as
data sources, Avro, ORC, or Parquet as supported data input formats, and
DataSketches for scalable approximate algorithms. Druid can also be used as a
data source by Superset.

## Issues

There are no issues requiring board attention at this time.

## Activity

We are currently finishing up our third major post-graduation release, 0.19.0,
which we hope to have wrapped up and ready for release in July. Additionally,
we made our second major post-graduation release 0.18.0 on April 20, followed
by a bug fix release, 0.18.1, on May 14.

To update on community happenings, since our last board report we have had 4
successful virtual meetups, with 3 more scheduled in July. In-person events
are still on hold due to COVID-19 related concerns around nonessential
gatherings.

Mailing list activity is healthy with 104 emails on the dev list
(dev@druid.apache.org) over the last quarter. Our ASF Slack channel,

To update on community happenings, since our last board report we have had 1
virtual meetup which was a success, with an additional virtual meetup
scheduled for April 8th. Due to COVID-19, all in-person meetups have been put
on hold, in favor of virtual meetups. Likewise, the Druid Summit event has

## Activity

We are currently hard at work preparing to create a branch for our 2nd
post-graduation release, 0.18.0, expected to be done within the next week,
targeting a release by the end of the month. 0.18.0 is currently weighing in
at over 200 commits from 41 contributors since our last release on Jan 26
2020.

In-person meetups and events have always been an important part of the Druid
community, but given the current global COVID-19 situation, they have become
untenable. Druid Summit, a larger event, was originally planned for April
13-15 and has recently been postponed to November 2-4. We are also
investigating alternatives to the smaller local meetups (typically 20-50
people) that we had been planning for New York City, Orange County, and San
Diego over the next two months.

We have done our first post-graduation release, Druid 0.17.0, containing
over 250 new features, performance enhancements, bug fixes, and major
documentation improvements from 52 contributors. Major improvements
include improved native batch indexing, performance improvements, LDAP
support, improved compliance with SQL standards, and much more. Work
on the upcoming 0.18.0 release is underway and on track for a likely
end of March release date.

Community activity continues to be strong, with a healthy rate of commits,
issues filed on GitHub, user mailing list posts, and ever increasing
activity in our ASF Slack channel #druid, which now has over 600 members.

Keeping boots on the ground to improve adoption, over the last month we
have had Druid meetups in New Delhi, London, Athens, and Tel Aviv, with
an additional meetup in Sydney scheduled in March. Planning for the
Druid Summit event is progressing with over 80 proposed talks currently
being evaluated, and half of the 40 scheduled speaking slots filled with
a diverse set of both PMC members and passionate users. The event will
take place April 13 - 15 in the San Francisco Bay Area.

## Issues

There are no issues requiring board attention at this time.

## Activity

This is Druid's first report as a top-level project.

Since graduating, we have added 9 PMC members and 2 committers.

Community activity has been strong since graduation, with a constant flow
of mailing list posts, issues being filed, and pull requests. We make an
effort to respond to a high percentage of user questions to encourage
adoption. Most of these questions come in through GitHub issues, or our
user group mailing list, or the ASF Slack channel #druid (where we recently
passed the 500 member mark).

We are working towards our first post-graduation release, which is expected
to be Druid 0.17.0 and is expected to be released in the coming weeks. The
major initiatives in this release include an improved batch ingestion
interface, substantial new work on our built-in parallel batch ingestion
feature, performance improvements, and LDAP integration.

We believe in-person events are an important part of community development.
In December, there were Druid meetups in Bangalore and Denver. This upcoming
month, there are meetups planned in New Delhi, London, Athens, and Tel Aviv.
Additionally, a Druid Summit event is planned for April 13 - 15 in the San
Francisco Bay Area. It is being organized by a third party (Imply) in
coordination with the Druid PMC. The models we are using for this are
similar events like Kafka Summit, Spark + AI Summit, and Flink Forward.

## Recent PMC changes

 - Currently 27 PMC members.
 - Immediately after graduation, on Dec 20 2019, we added the following
   committers to the PMC: Benedict Jin, Clint Wylie, Dylan Wylie, Fokko
   Driesprong, Furkan Kamaci, Mingming Qiu, Niketh Sabbineni, Surekha
   Saharan, and Vadim Ogievetsky.

## Recent committer changes

 - Currently 34 committers.
 - New commmitters since graduation (Dec 20 2019):
    - Samarth Jain (Jan 2 2020)
    - Alexander Saydakov (Jan 7 2020)

18 Dec 2019

Druid is a high-performance, column-oriented, distributed data store.

Druid has been incubating since 2018-02-28.

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

 1. The project is not aware of any issues blocking graduation. Druid
 previously shelved a resolution to graduate due to a potential brand
 issue, which the project has since been working on with VP Brand. It is
 now no longer a concern so the project is proceeding towards graduation
 once again.

### Are there any issues that the IPMC or ASF Board need to be aware of?
 None

### How has the community developed since the last report?
 - 2 new committers have been added
 - A healthy, constant flow of bug fixes, quality improvements and new
 features are still ongoing at https://github.com/apache/incubator-druid.
 - Several community meetups have been held.

### How has the project developed since the last report?
 - Since the last report, we have had a total of 187 commits from 34
 contributors.
 - We have released 1 version, 0.16.0.
 - We currently have a vote open for 0.16.1, second release candidate

### When were the last committers or PPMC members elected?

 The Druid PPMC elected 2 new committers to the project on September 22,
 2019.

 The previous Sep 2019 report was incorrect here, as the two committers
 were not yet officially elected then.

### Have your mentors been helpful and responsive?

 As always, Julian has been quite helpful.

### Is the PPMC managing the podling's brand / trademarks?

 The PPMC has from time to time reached out to have naming corrected on
 third party sites. VP Brand has approved graduating as Apache Druid.

      been very helpful"; for the record, the other two mentors have been

    Comments: It's taken a few iterations, but the first release looks like
      it's just about to pass the vote. This was their biggest hurdle. They
      mastered Apache governance a long while ago, and have built
      community.
      I'm not concerned about the weekly sync up meetings as long as they
      continue to send out minutes and make decisions on the dev list.
      After one more release this project should consider graduation.

      three releases prior to graduation.

     Comments: The first release will be an important milestone. (During
       incubation the project has made non-ASF releases, with permission.)
       All other aspects of the project are functioning well; the project
       has built a vibrant community and lets the community drive its
       decision-making. I think it is not far from graduating.

  without making a first release or adding committers.

of?

- None.

How has the community developed since the last report?

- A healthy, constant flow of bug fixes, quality improvements and new
features are still ongoing at https://github.com/apache/incubator-druid.
- Our next community meetup has been scheduled for August 8.

Druid is a high-performance, column-oriented, distributed data store.

Druid has been incubating since 2018-02-28.

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

 1. Complete SGA for current sources and ICLAs for current committers.
 2. Move the source code and website to Apache infrastructure.
 3. Plan and execute our first Apache release.

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

- None.

How has the community developed since the last report?

- We have disabled posting on our pre-Apache development list.
- We have updated our pre-Apache community page (http://druid.io/community/) to
  include information about incubation.
- We have set up a placeholder site on https://druid.apache.org/.
- A healthy, constant flow of bug fixes, quality improvements and new features
  are still ongoing on https://github.com/druid-io/druid.

How has the project developed since the last report?

- Since the last report there have been 69 commits from 23 individuals.
- We have conducted a vote to put out a release candidate 0.12.1-rc1. This
  release candidate is being done outside the Incubator. We also anticipate the
  0.12.1 release to be done outside the Incubator.

     Comments: The "Initial setup" status is accurate because the SGA has
       not been completed yet. This is frustrating to all. Code is in github
       rather than ASF git, and Apache releases are not possible.
       Druid is functioning according to the Apache Way as much as they
       can, given these limitations.
       Druid has made its 2nd non-ASF patch release, with permission.

     Comments: SGA finally received. Hopefully druid will be able to do an Apache
       release soon.

Druid is a high-performance, column-oriented, distributed data store.

Druid has been incubating since 2018-02-28.

Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
 1. Migrate existing contributors and users to apache mailing lists.
 2. Move the source code and website to apache infrastructure.
 3. Plan and execute our first Apache release.

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be aware
of?
* The team is working on the items on the Incubation Checklist.
* We’re working on moving the existing mailing lists, source code, github
  issues and website to Apache Infrastructure.
* In order to keep the project momentum up until the migration is complete we
  are continuing the development on existing druid repository.
* We are considering doing the 0.12.0 release before migrating source code to
  apache, since the IPMC has already voted for it and migrating infra to
  apache might take a while, and we don't want to block 0.12.0 on this
  migration.

How has the community developed since the last report?
* This is our first board report.
* Current Status of our Github contributors (212), forks (1,516), watchers
 (524) and stars (6,157)

How has the project developed since the last report?
* Creation of Domain name for Druid - DONE
* Creation of Mailing lists - DONE.
* A healthy, constant flow of bug fixes, quality improvements and new
  Features are still ongoing on https://github.com/druid-io/druid.

      Druid has only been in the incubator for a week, but
      the PPMC have already checked off quite a few of the
      initial tasks. This momentum is encouraging.

    Comments: Druid is off to a good start. They were not
      required to report this soon, but voluntarily did so.
