HugeGraph

18 Oct 2023

A large-scale and easy-to-use graph database

HugeGraph has been incubating since 2022-01-23.

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

 1. Release distributed storage module (include PD/store) & make graph
 computer easy to use
 2. Overall easier to use, more stable and reliable & more communication
 with other Graph Community(Like Tinkerpop/JanusGraph etc)
 3. At least 2 new PPMC & 5 committers selected and take deep part in the
 community

### 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?
 1. We have taken part in 2 activities to let more students participate in
 the construction of HugeGraph.
 2. We took part in CommunityOverCode Asia 2023, and shared experiences and
 insights from building the open source community, as well as the use of
 HugeGraph in enterprises and its optimizations.
 3. 10+ new contributors with 80+ Pull Requests

### How has the project developed since the last report?
 1. hugegraph-toolchain has introduced Kafka source and
 hugegraph-spark-connector.
 2. A new HTTP client solution has been introduced to resolve the dependency
 issues in hugegraph-common and improve compatibility with Spring Boot 2.
 3. Dockerfile and CI processes for all hugegraph sub projects have been
 optimized.
 4. The hugegraph-computer module has added a snapshot feature.
 5. A distributed development version of hugegraph-server is under
 development.
 6. Documents have been improved and some bugs have been fixed.

HugeGraph has been incubating since 2022-01-23.

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

 1. Increase diversity contributors.
 2. Publish spec-compliant release version.
 3. Enhance core product functionality as mentioned in the initial goals.

### Are there any issues that the IPMC or ASF Board need to be aware of?

 No issues so far.

### How has the community developed since the last report?

 This is the first report.

 All HugeGraph sub-projects have more than 50 contributors, and we are
 attracting more contributors to the development.

### How has the project developed since the last report?

 This is the first report.

 We have completed the SGA signing, now we are discussing the trademark
 donation, and are going through the approval process.

 The donated 5 repositories have been migrated from hugegraph org to apache
 org, 7 committers have completed the github account association, they are
 granted codebase write permissions, 5 of them have been initialized as PPMC
 members.

 We solved a series of ci workflow problems for repositories migration. The
 official website is currently under construction.

 The next step is to make an official announcement, and prepare for the
 release version.
