Community changes, past quarter:
- No new PMC members. Last addition was Carl Harris on 2017-11-19.
- No new committers. Last addition was Luke on 2020-02-07.

## Project Activity:
Project development is focused on finalizing the 1.2.0 release. The 1.2.0
release is planned to include several major improvements, like support for
SAML and Wake-on-LAN, and addresses a number of regressions resulting from the
migration to FreeRDP 2.0.0.

Recent releases:
- 1.1.0 was released on 2020-01-29.
- 1.0.0 was released on 2019-01-08.
- 0.9.14 was released on 2018-01-18.

## Community Health:
The community is active and healthy. Project website traffic more than doubled
at the end of March due to COVID-19 and the widespread need to work from home.

The increased traffic has subsided somewhat since then, but is still at least
50% more than normal. Activity on the user@ mailing list is also substantially
higher.

- Luke was added as committer on 2020-02-07
- Sean Reid was added as committer on 2020-02-07

## Project Activity:
With 1.1.0 having been released, focus has shifted to the next release (1.2.0)
and to producing more frequent releases in general. Scope of the 1.2.0 release
has been settled, though flexibility in scope is being allowed for regressions
related to the two major migrations that were part of 1.1.0 (FreeRDP 2.0.0 and
the Apache Directory API).

Recent releases:
- 1.1.0 was released on 2020-01-29.
- 1.0.0 was released on 2019-01-08.
- 0.9.14 was released on 2018-01-18.

## Community Health:
The community is active and healthy. The decrease in community activity noted
last quarter has vanished, with all metrics now showing major increases.

Community changes, past quarter:
- No new PMC members. Last addition was Carl Harris on 2017-11-19.
- No new committers. Last addition was Joel Best on 2019-01-30.

## Project Activity:
Contributions from the community covering improvements to LDAP integration,
RDP keymap support, and the SSH/telnet terminal emulator have been merged.
Contributions covering REST API documentation and improvements to CAS support
are now under review. Core RDP support finally builds against the 2.0.0
version of the FreeRDP library. Support for non-core RDP channels remains to
be ported to the new library.

## Community Health:
The community is active and healthy, however there has been a decrease in
activity relative to last quarter across most metrics. The reason for the
decrease is unclear.

- No new committers. Last addition was Joel Best on 2019-01-30.

## Project Activity:
Project activity is centered around finalizing the outstanding tasks blocking
release of 1.1.0. The main obstacle to releasing 1.1.0 is still GUACAMOLE-249,
as noted in last quarter's report. Significant progress has been made outside
of that issue, as most other issues within 1.1.0 scope have been resolved over
the course of the last quarter.

## Community Health:
The community continues to be involved and healthy. Overall commit activity
has increased, reflecting the accelerating effort to release 1.1.0. The number
of code contributors and pull requests opened/closed has also almost doubled
relative to last quarter.

## Description:
 - Apache Guacamole is a clientless remote desktop gateway which supports
   standard protocols like VNC, RDP, and SSH. We call it "clientless" because
   no plugins or client software are required. Once Guacamole is installed on
   a server, all you need to access your desktops is a web browser.

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

## Activity:
 - Progress toward 1.1.0 continues. Development toward release slowed down at
   the end of last quarter but has recently picked back up.
 - GUACAMOLE-249 (adding support for the 2.0.0 RCs of FreeRDP's library)
   remains both a priority of 1.1.0 and a major obstacle.

 Special Order 7G, Establish the Apache Guacamole Project, was
 approved by Unanimous Vote of the directors present.

15 Nov 2017

Guacamole is an enterprise-grade, protocol-agnostic, remote desktop gateway.
Combined with cloud hosting, Guacamole provides an excellent alternative to
traditional desktops. Guacamole aims to make cloud-hosted desktop access
preferable to traditional, local access.

Guacamole has been incubating since 2016-02-10.

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

 1. Reach consensus on graduation resolution DISCUSS thread (general@)
 2. Call IPMC graduation vote
 3.

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 community has discussed, voted upon, and approved a resolution to
 graduate to TLP. This resolution is now being discussed on the general@
 list, prior to calling the IPMC graduation vote.

 Community activity on the mailing lists continues to be productive  and
 increasing, with the user@ list now receiving an average of 201 posts per
 month.

Guacamole is an enterprise-grade, protocol-agnostic, remote desktop gateway.
Combined with cloud hosting, Guacamole provides an excellent alternative to
traditional desktops. Guacamole aims to make cloud-hosted desktop access
preferable to traditional, local access.

Guacamole has been incubating since 2016-02-10.

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

 1. Call community graduation VOTE
 2.
 3.

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?

 Community activity on the mailing lists is still strong and increasing, with
 the user@ list now receiving an average of 171 posts per month.

 development-related discussions on the mailing lists, and in assisting
 others.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 All items on the podling status page have been completed, the podling name
 search has been resolved (name approved), and another release has gone out
 smoothly. We will be moving forward with the community graduation VOTE.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 The project has fallen into a nice rhythm with respect to releases and has
 gone through two additional releases since last report: 0.9.11-incubating
 and 0.9.12-incubating.

 The project website has been updated with documentation covering release
 procedures, the acceptance of new committers, and handling of code review
 via pull requests. Links to relevant ASF resources for PPMC members and
 committers have also been added.

 The development community continues to be engaged on the mailing lists, and
 a new committer, Nick Couchman, has been brought onto the project as of
 2017-02-09.

 Recent discussion on the mailing lists regarding graduation readiness has
 been positive. The podling status page for Guacamole has been brought
 up to date, and the suitable name search issue has been created:

Guacamole has been incubating since 2016-02-10.

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

 1. Identifying contributors with merit warranting committership
 2. Engaging mentors to assess podling status and provide guidance
 3. Ensuring mentors are subscribed to the lists and are generally aware of
    podling status/activities

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

 Not at present.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 Frequency and complexity of contributions seem to be increasing. Community
 presence and activity on the mailing lists has also increased due to the
 use of Nabble to provide a forum-like interface.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 The project has succeeded in producing its first release under the
 Incubator, 0.9.10-incubating, and the process is already underway for
 producing the next, with the IPMC vote for release having been started on
 2017-01-26.

 With the first release out of the way, development is finally moving
 smoothly again. We have adopted a branching workflow which allows
 development to continue unhindered, with only the release scope being
 frozen.

Date of last release:

 2016-12-29 (0.9.10-incubating)

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

 The most recent committer, Frode Langelo, was accepted into the
 project by VOTE on 2016-04-03, with the required ICLA received on
 2016-04-05.

 Greg Trasuk:

   Watching the dev list, I've seen good discussions of features and
   engagement of users and potential developers.  Community seems to be
   operating well and making decisions on-list.

Guacamole is an enterprise-grade, protocol-agnostic, remote desktop gateway.
Combined with cloud hosting, Guacamole provides an excellent alternative to
traditional desktops. Guacamole aims to make cloud-hosted desktop access
preferable to traditional, local access.

Guacamole has been incubating since 2016-02-10.

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

 1. **Making the first Guacamole release under the Apache Incubator**
 2. Encouraging community participation and contribution
 3. Accepting additional committers

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

 It is clear that the continuing lack of a release is a major obstacle to
 community development, especially given outstanding pull requests which
 cannot be merged due to pre-release code freeze.

 We believe that the source and documentation are finally up-to-date with
 respect to Apache and the Incubator, and that we are ready to move forward
 with the procedures surrounding the release. Any assistance in navigating
 our first release would be greatly appreciated.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 Community participation has remained roughly the same as last report. Mailing
 list participation is active but unchanged. Since last report, we have
 received an additional 3 pull requests, and have engaged the contributors for
 code review. Code looks good, and response to feedback has been professional,
 but merge is blocked until we can get the first release out of the way.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 All outstanding issues which were aimed at the project's first release
 (0.9.10-incubating) have been completed, as have all bugs discovered during
 testing. We have made preparatory changes to the project website with the
 release in mind.

 The project's old SourceForge forums have finally been closed, replaced by
 the mailing lists. The forums have been left in read-only mode for the sake
 of reference, with a stickied announcement notifying users of the move.

Date of last release:

 2015-12-18 (0.9.9, prior to Apache Incubator)

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

 The most recent committer, Frode Langelo, was accepted into the
 project by VOTE on 2016-04-03, with the required ICLA received on
 2016-04-05.

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?

 Activity on the mailing lists has increased now that the new project
 website is up. At the time of the last report, the @user list was unused.
 Since then, the number of emails has increased each month, with 52 in May,
 95 in June, and 123 in July. Users do still occasionally post to the old
 SourceForge forums, but are then gently redirected to the mailing lists.

 Excluding project committers, the community has opened 5 pull requests, 2
 of which have been merged.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 The project has finished migrating to Apache infrastructure, including the
 project website. There is one major outstanding task, screen sharing,
 which has been blocking the release but is finally nearing completion.

 Since last report, the project has had roughly 250 commits, about 60% of
 which were directly related to the outstanding task mentioned above.

traditional desktops. Guacamole aims to make cloud-hosted desktop access
preferable to traditional, local access.

Guacamole has been incubating since 2016-02-10.

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

 1. Finalizing the move to Apache infrastructure
 2. Making the first Guacamole release under the Apache Incubator
 3. Accepting additional committers

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

 The PPMC has had difficulty fully engaging mentors to finish the
 migration of Apache Guacamole to Apache infrastructure and processes.
 Though the project has successfully moved to Apache-hosted git
 repositories, the processes for importing our existing JIRA issues and
 adding our first non-founding committer (Frode Langelo) were stagnated
 until very recently.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 While our community of users continues to grow, this is mainly the
 established pattern of growth that existed prior to acceptance in the
 Apache Incubator. We are expecting this to change once the Apache
 Guacamole website is up, public announcement of the move to the
 Incubator is made, and users of the old SourceForge forums are
 directed to the mailing lists.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 The project has accepted its first committer outside the original
 founding developers, Frode Langelo, and development has moved onto
 Apache-hosted git repositories. Development of new Apache Guacamole
 website is nearing completion.

Date of last release:

 2015-12-18 (0.9.9, prior to Apache Incubator)

Shepherd/Mentor notes:

 Jean-Baptiste Onofre (jbonofre):

   Frode's account should be OK now. For the Jira, the difficulty was that
   the project wanted to import existing Jira content. Not sure it's a good
   idea as bunch of users don't exist in the Apache Jira and there's lot of
   "noise". I would recommend to start by creating the highest priority
   tasks and issues in the Apache Jira.
