Apache Hama(TM) is a framework for Big Data analytics which uses the
Bulk Synchronous Parallel (BSP) computing model, which was established
in 2012 as a Top-Level Project of The Apache Software Foundation.

## Issues:

- There are no issues requiring board attention at this time

Top 2 or 3 things to resolve prior to graduation

 - Grow the community size.
 - Making a ready-to-use release.

Issues for the Incubator PMC or ASF Board

 - None.

Community development

 - Increased contributions from new people interested in Hama.
   Apurv Verma and Suraj Menon did contributed great efforts to our project.
 - Looking forward to participate in GSOC 2012 and invite new committers.

Project development

 - Prepared Hama 0.4.0-incubating and benchmarked its performance
   (The concept is proofed).
 - This release includes a lot of new features and improvements and
   is currently being voted.
   - Stabilized barrier synchronization.
   - Support Muli-tasks.
   - Input/Output Formatter like MapReduce.

Description:

Hama was accepted into Incubator on 20 May 2008. Hama is a distributed
computing framework based on BSP (Bulk Synchronous Parallel) computing
techniques for massive scientific computations.

Top 2 or 3 things to resolve prior to graduation:

 * Complete first release
 * Invite new active committers
 * Recruit more mentors

Issues for the Incubator PMC or ASF Board:

None.

Community development:

 * Mailing list shows increased usage from previous report
 * Filipe Manana has contributed a great part in the development of BSP
computing engine
 * A number of new individuals have expressed an interest in contributing in
various areas
 * Hama workshop accepted at IEEE CloudCom 2010

Project development:

 * Our plan is now much more detailed
 * Work on creating the initial release
 * Maven building support added

22 Sep 2010

Hama was accepted into Incubator on 20 May 2008. Hama is a distributed
scientific package on Hadoop for massive matrix and graph data.

Recent Activity:

* We designed the User-Interface primarily for BSP programming.
* We made a Job Client, Job Manage System for BSP computing framework.
 Currently, it works on local system, but we're working hard for distributed
 system.
* We made an BSP examples, e.g., Pi Estimator, Serialize Printing

The following is planned for next reporting period:

* We'll freeze the features and release a beta when all issues for 0.2
 version are fixed.

Before this project can graduate we need to encourage more participation in
the project and grow the community.

16 Jun 2010

Hama was accepted into Incubator on 20 May 2008. Hama is a distributed
scientific package on Hadoop for massive matrix and graph data.

We're trying to implement the M/R alternative, a new computation framework
for matrix/graphs based on BSP. We are doing this because the Hadoop M/R
model isn't suitable for the complex numerical/relational data processing
since it requires heavy communications among computing nodes.

Recently we made a progress in the design of the overall architecture, and
the development of the BSP cluster with programming interfaces. And, HAMA
project has drawn many interests from Hadoopers.

We are now focusing on the very first release of Hama to graduate from
incubator.

17 Mar 2010

Hama has been incubating since 19 May, 2008. It is a distributed scientific
computational package based on Hadoop Map/Reduce and BSP.

Recent Activity:

* We'd implemented, introduced the BSP (Bulk Synchronous Parallel) package
* Added a new committer, Hyunsik Choi

The following is planned for next reporting period:

* More documentations
* Re-factoring for improving the design of existing code

Before this project can graduate we need to encourage more participation in
the project and grow the community.

16 Dec 2009

Hama has been incubating since 19 May, 2008. It is a parallel matrix
computational package based on Hadoop Map/Reduce.

Recent developments:

* We implemented BSP(Bulk Synchronous Parallel) library on top of the
Hadoop.
* We were re-architecting the computing engine based on BSP to solve a
problem of performance and locality of sub-blocks in distributed system.

Required before graduation:

* Recently, the community and patch contribution is increasing. However, we
need more committer/reviewers who are capable of proofing algorithm.
* We need more documentation (We are preparing to submit a paper to the
USENIX) and education about linear algebra and graph algorithm.

Hama has been incubating since 19 May, 2008. It is a parallel matrix
computational package based on Hadoop Map/Reduce.

Recent developments:

* We implemented EigenValue Decomposition, based on Map/Reduce computing
model
* We start considering about another computing model based Bulk Synchronous
 Parallel on Hadoop
* We start preparing a paper of this project

Required before graduation:

* More practical examples of matrix manipulation
* Increase community size and activity
* First Apache release

Kato
Kato was accepted into the Incubator on 6 November 2008.

Kato is a project to develop the Specification, Reference Implementation,
and TCK for JSR 326: the JVM Post-mortem Diagnostics API

Recent Activity:

* A JVMTI agent has been contributed by Paul Sobek along with an
 implementation of the API.
* The JSR specification document has been written and is building.
* The JSR specification has been submitted to the JCP as an EDR.
* The project is being built on the ASF's hudson server.

The following is planned for next reporting period:

* Our first release of the RI, demos and TCK.

Before this project can be graduated we need to produce a usable
implementation of the API and more useful tools to encourage adoption and
participation of a much needed community.

Hama has been incubating since 19 May, 2008. It is a parallel matrix
computational package based on Hadoop Map/Reduce.

Development activity is medium from mainly two developer, we focus on
proofing/benchmarking current code/algorithm recently. A number of inactive
initial contributors stepped down from the project. And, 'Saumel Guo' joined
to hama project as a new committer.

 * We are looking for more mathmathicians/committers
 * We will plan for our first release

17 Sep 2008

Hama is a parallel matrix computational package based on Hadoop.

Incubating since: 19 May 2008

* The Hama website was published.
* The automated CI server for Hama integration builds was installed.
* The users were beginning to evaluate/report the function and perfomance
of the Hama.

We need to make a guide for the users and developers.


=== Empire-db ===

Apache Empire-db is an Open Source relational data persistence component
which allows database vendor independent dynamic query definition as well as
safe and simple data retrieval and updating. Empire-db entered the incubator
on July 8th, 2008

- we've finalized migration from sf.net to apache
- commits are coming in
- issue tracker is being used
- first release tries to go through the incubator
- no new additions to the committer roster or ppmc

20 Aug 2008

Hama is a parallel matrix computational package based on Hadoop. The project
entered incubation on May 19th, 2008.

We are currently working to prepare the first release of Apache Hama in the
Apache Incubator. The first release Roadmap is planned. The number of dev
subscribers has increased. We should have a page about becoming
contributors. We will likely be adding a new project member soon. CCLA sent
for KRIBB and NHN's contribution.

16 Jul 2008

Incubating since: 19 May 2008

The intial donation of Hama from the google project was done, but we should
firstly discuss and define the architecture before collaboration.

IPMC comments: "Before collaboration"? Shouldn't that be done
collaboratively?

* Hama has been approved by technical commitee at NHN.
 * But, Some people (Joosun, Changhee) are still waiting for make entries
in a CCLA.
 * The 128-node Hama test cluster was configured at the Korean Research
Institute of Bioscience and Biotechnology (KRIBB).
* We (see http://wiki.apache.org/hama/ScaLAPACK) met Prof. Choi J., who is
a member of the ScaLAPACK team.
 * The Hama is also good fit with block algorithms using two-dimensional
grids.

25 Jun 2008

Incubating since: 19 May 2008

Mailing lists, subversion repository, and JIRA setup was completed.

Software Grant Agreement (Initial code owners are chanwit and me) was sended
for the intial donation of Hama code from the google project.

ICLAs were sent, But We are still waiting for the arrival of CCLAs.
