Formal board meeting minutes from 2010 through present. Please Note: The board typically approves minutes from one meeting during the next board meeting, so minutes will be published roughly one month later than the scheduled date. Other corporate records are published, as is an alternate categorized view of all board meeting minutes.

Edgent

27 Feb 2017

Edgent is a stream processing programming model and lightweight runtime to
execute analytics at devices on the edge or at the gateway.

Edgent has been incubating since 2016-02-29.

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

 1. Create and expand a diverse community of contributors and committers
    around the Edgent project
 2. Checking of all items in the project's Maturity Model
    https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/EDGENT/Apache+Maturity+Model+For+Edgent
 3. Create a second release of Apache Edgent with additional features and
    fixes.

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

 No

How has the community developed since the last report?

 * A well attended meetup in San Francisco, CA about Apache Edgent was held
   on January 18th. It covered introductory concepts of datastreaming, the
   positioning of Edgent in the datastreaming universe, and examples and
   use cases of Edgent. The meetup was attended by roughly 40 developers.
   "Apache Edgent: Datastreaming and Analytics for IoT Devices "
   https://www.meetup.com/SF-Data-Science/events/236682354/
 * There has been at least one question both asked and answered on
   Stackoverflow by a non-committer non-PPMC member of the community.
   http://stackoverflow.com/questions/41280097/joining-streams-of-different-types-in-apache-edgent
 * Since the last report, at least 5 individuals have subscribed to the
   Apache Edgent dev mailing list.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 * The first release of Edgent as part of the Apache incubator was created
   on 2016-12-15. This represents a large amount of work, including
   numerous improvements to connectors, the console, and a complete
   overhaul of the build system to use Gradle.
 * According to JIRA, the project has added the following:
   * November 2016: 6 new issues; 18 issues resolved.
   * December: 18 new issues; 29 issues resolved.
   * January: 15 new issues; 12 issues resolved

Date of last release:

 * The most recent release of Apache Edgent was 2016-12-15.

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

 * In May 2016, we added two new committers and PPMC members, Kathy
   Saunders and Queenie Ma.

Shepherd/Mentor notes:

 Katherine Marsden:

   Checking of the Maturity model is not yet complete and is just being
   used as an aid to help assess our progress.  Hopefully now that we have
   a release and with the meetup we will have more people get interested
   and involved. The active development community, while still small seems
   to be communicating well on the list and it was great to see the
   release.

 Justin Mclean:

   Great work on the release, project progressing along well.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 * A well attended meetup in Plano, TX about Apache Edgent was held on
   September 9th "Sensor Data Analytics Acceleration with Apache Edgent"
   http://www.meetup.com/DFW-Sensor-Technology/events/233150402/
 * A presentation about Apache Edgent was presented on October 21st @ Open
   Source India 2016. Approximately 400 attendees were present.
 * A presentation about Apache Edgent, Streaming Analytics and Weather
   Company Data was presented at World of Watson in Las Vegas on October
   26th.
 * A demo about Apache Edgent was presented at World of Watson in Las Vegas
   on October 24th.  "IoT Device Events to Streaming Analytics in 15 Minutes
   with Bluemix"
 * For the months of September and October four new community members either
   subscribed to the edgent-dev mailing list, or opened JIRAs.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 * A new build system was created using Gradle. The initial contribution for
   this work came from two community contributors.  The follow up work was
   done by committers.

 According to JIRA, the project has added the following:

 * September: 11 new issues; 15 issues resolved.
 * October: 46 new issues; 23 issues resolved.
 * October activity was almost exclusively due to readying for the first
   Edgent release.

Date of last release:

 Apache Edgent is a programming model and micro-kernel style runtime that
 can be embedded in gateways and small footprint edge devices enabling
 local, real-time, analytics on the continuous streams of data coming from
 equipment, vehicles, systems, appliances, devices and sensors of all kinds
 (for example, Raspberry Pis or smart phones). Working in conjunction with
 centralized analytic systems, Apache Edgent provides efficient and timely
 analytics across the whole IoT ecosystem: from the center to the edge.

 Edgent has been incubating since 2016-02-29.

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

 1. Create and expand a diverse community of contributors and committers
    around Edgent project
 2. Set up new build system, allowing us to remove code dependencies from
    our repository
 3. Create the first Apache release of Edgent

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

 No

How has the community developed since the last report?

 Significant progress has been made on a new build system, using  Gradle.
 One of the goals is to remove third party code, so we can work toward a
 release.

 The community has been active and participating in voting.  Heavy commit
 activity, but light Jira activity, recently as the name change was
 implemented in the code, documentation and web site.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 According to JIRA, the project has added the following:

 * June: 29 new issues; 22 issues resolved.
 * July: 20 new issues; 15 issues resolved.
 * August: 7 new issues; 7 issues resolved.

 August activity was largely build and renaming activities, tracked under a
 few Jira issues.

 The name for the project was changed from Apache Quarks to Apache Edgent.
 The new name went through a suitable name search and was approved.  The
 infrastructure, code and documentation changes have been completed.

 A logo was voted on and chosen, and a wiki was set up for the Edgent
 community.

Date of last release:

 We have not created an Apache release as of yet.  We need to complete build
 changes and licensing work to create a release.

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

 In May, we added two new committers and PPMC members, Kathy Saunders and
 Queenie Ma.
