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

 1. Expanding the community to include contributors and committers outside of
   Pivotal.
 2. Establish a steady release cadence.
 3. Discuss graduation on the geode dev list.

  graduation

 - There is Agile Dashboard tracking the release progress:
   http://s.apache.org/s0v
 - Builds now runs Apache RAT for license audit thanks to a Gradle plugin.
   (GEODE-608)
 - Jenkins nightly build now produces source and binary artifacts. Namely
   apache-geode-src-1.0.0-incubating-SNAPSHOT.tar.gz and
   apache-geode-1.0.0-incubating-SNAPSHOT.tar.gz
 - The code for HTTP session replication and Hibernate modules are now
   being merged into develop. (GEODE-14)
 - The community did a squashathon (GEODE-409 branch) focusing to fix
   intermitent failures on the CI with great results, increasing the number
   of Unit and Integration tests. Current numbers are the following, by
   category:

 UnitTest: 1,572 tests

Shepherd/Mentor notes:

 Konstantin Boudnik (cos):

   For the next report: for me as a mentor (and perhaps for others on IPMC)
   it is not very insightful to see the number of pull requests or JIRAs
   opened. It isn't what "project development" constitutes in my mind. I
   would like to see more info about how project is getting into Apache Way,
   what important discussions are held, what decisions are made through
   community consensus, etc.

Geode is a data management platform that provides real-time, consistent
access to data-intensive applications throughout widely distributed butt
architectures.

Geode has been incubating since 2015-04-27.

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

 1. Have our first Apache (incubating) release (currently blocked on us
    solving JGroups licensing issues) GEODE-77.
 2. Expanding the community to include contributors and committers outside
    of Pivotal.
 3. Execute and manage the project according to governance model required by
    the "Apache Way"

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

 None

 The issue of publishing the nightly build to DockerHub was brought up so
 we solicited IPMC feedback. There was a great discussion thread and we're
 now taking care of actionable feedback with an ETA within a week or so.

Shepherd/Mentor notes:

 John D. Ament:

   The JGroups licensing issue caught me off guard.  Based on what I read
   about it, it's purely a technical issue and not licensing related
   (though triggered by licensing).  Based on the documentation heavy
   approach I'm concerned that this could be an issue for potential
   contributors (needing to create designs up front for issues).  Code
   changes seem to be going slow, but the fact that they already have a
   great website and nice logo is a good sign for the podling.

Geode is a data management platform that provides real-time, consistent access
to data-intensive applications throughout widely distributed cloud
architectures.

Geode has been incubating since 2015-04-27.

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

 1. Expanding the community to include contributors and committers
    outside of Pivotal
 2. Execute and manage the project according to governance model
    required by the "Apache Way"
 3. Have our first Apache (incubating) release (currently blocked
    on us solving JGroups licensing issues)


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?

 The project had around 350 messages and around a 100 different people
 joined the discussions on the mailing lists, covering all sorts of
 topics, from development model to new features.

 ICLAs for initial committers are filled and processed.

 The wiki has been kept up to date based on mailing list discussions,
 with processes for:
  - Code Review and submissions
  - Branching and versioning
  - Code of Conduct
  - Social Media guidelines and accounts
     - Twitter account (https://twitter.com/apachegeode)
     - Slideshare account (http://www.slideshare.net/ApacheGeode)
     - Gravatar/Wordpress (https://en.gravatar.com/apachegeode)

  There are 46 open issues on JIRA, 5 resolved.

  Several external pull requests. Review process is in place and has
  been done using ASF ReviewBoard.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  - Initial SGA from Pivotal has been received and processed including the
    initial code drop.
  - Source code packages will also be renamed from com.gemstone to
    org.apache.geode in order to allow an easier path to become a TLP.
  - Pivotal is going to deliver the final code drop by end of June
    adding important features to the project such as:
     - Off Heap support
     - HDFS Integration
     - Command line utilities
     - JVSD - Statistic visualization tool
  - The main command line interface will be renamed from GFSH (GemFire
    Shell) to GEODE, as per community voting.
  - The project decided (mailing lists) to follow the RTC
    (Review-Then-Commit) policy initially and re-evaluate after some
    iterations.
  - Jenkins nightly builds are setup
  - DockerHub account with a nightly build
    - https://registry.hub.docker.com/repos/apachegeode/
  - ASF Infrastructure setup:
     - Wiki
     - JIRA
     - Jenkins
     - GitHub integration

Date of last release:

  N/A - Just nightly builds.

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?
