IoTDB

15 Sep 2021 [Xiangdong Huang / Sheng]

Report was filed, but display is awaiting the approval of the Board minutes.

16 Jun 2021 [Xiangdong Huang / Sharan]

## Description:
The mission of Apache IoTDB is the creation and maintenance of software related
to an IoT native database with high performance for data management and analysis

## Issues:
There are no issues requiring board attention.

## Membership Data:
Apache IoTDB was founded 2020-09-16 (9 months ago)
There are currently 40 committers and 24 PMC members in this project.
The Committer-to-PMC ratio is 5:3.

Community changes, past quarter:
- Chao Wang was added to the PMC on 2021-06-02
- Steve Yurong Su was added as committer on 2021-05-12

## Project Activity:

Release:
- IoTDB-0.11.3 was released on 2021-04-11.
- IoTDB-0.12.0 was released on 2021-04-11.

Release Candidate:
- IoTDB-0.11.4 RC1 was proposed on 2021-06-06
- IoTDB-0.12.1 RC1 was proposed on 2021-06-06

Recently, the project introduced E2E tests for guarantee the
cluster module works well.

Besides, we are developing a new feature, called aligned time series,
which is very common in many applications.
The design document (Chinese)is on IoTDB's confluence.

## Community Health:

The good news is we have more and more contributors.
It is benefited from GSoC 2021 (though IoTDB has no tasks
that are selected finally) and Chinese Summer 2021 of
Open Source Promotion Plan.

The bad news is the dev@ mailing list traffic decreases,
which is a serious signal.
The PMC group will keep eye on it and try to improve the
public discussion in next quarter.

## Membership Data:
Apache IoTDB was founded 2020-09-16 (6 months ago)
There are currently 39 committers and 23 PMC members in this project.
The Committer-to-PMC ratio is roughly 5:3.

Community changes, past quarter:
- No new PMC members. Last addition was Gaofei Cao on 2020-09-16.

 - We are working on developing 0.12.0.
 - Some interesting features are merged into the main branch,
e.g., the UDF (User Define Function), Cluster module, Integration with
Apache Zeppelin.

## Community Health:

According to Github's statistics, the number of IoTDB's code contributors
reaches to 100!

The number of discussions on the dev@ mailing list, the number of PRs
decreases, the Chinese New Year holiday is one of the reasons.

However, we can see the number of emails in the review@ mailing list
increases, it is good because it indicates more discussions happen.

The number of opened issues also increases, which indicates more and
more user requirements are received.

 - A meetup was held in Beijing China on Nov 29th,
   for the local Foo User Group. A PMC (in Germany) and
   a Committer were invited to share some technology details of IoTDB.
   Two Chinese users shared their use experiences of Using IoTDB.

## Community Health:
Overall community health is good.
We have been performing extensive outreach to related projects,
in order to attract new contributors.

However, we need more contributors to update our website,
maintain our CI and news or other articles.

18 Nov 2020 [Xiangdong Huang / Roy]

## Description:
The mission of Apache IoTDB is the creation and maintenance of software related
to an IoT native database with high performance for data management and analysis

## Issues:

no issue.

## Membership Data:
Apache IoTDB was founded 2020-09-16 (2 months ago)
There are currently 35 committers and 23 PMC members in this project.
The Committer-to-PMC ratio is roughly 3:2.

Community changes, past quarter:
- No new PMC members (project graduated recently).
- No new committers were added.

## Project Activity:

- We are releasing the first major version of IoTDB after its graduation,
v0.11.0. A vote for the version has begun.

- In the version, 16 new features are introduced, include:
 - new compression method
 - enhanced deletion and query SQLs
 - data compaction in the backend

 etc..

- There are two talks about IoTDB on Apache RoadShow in China,
 one is for the project and the other is for the community.

## Community Health:

- 141 emails sent in Sep while 127 mails sent in Oct. Both the number of
participators are 33.
But, indeed we saw many new participators in Oct.  Besides, we think
the number of the email is reasonable as in Sep we have many votes
for graduation.

- 79 PRs are merged in Sep while 177 PRs are merged in Oct.

- Another good thing is some non-developers join the community,
for modifying the documents, etc..

21 Oct 2020 [Xiangdong Huang / Sam]

## Description:

The Apache IoTDB is an IoT native database with high performance
for data management and analysis on both the edge and the cloud.

## Issues:

There are no new issues requiring board attention at this time.

## Membership Data:
Apache IoTDB was founded 2020-09-16 (a month ago)
There are currently 35 committers and 23 PMC members in this project.
The Committer-to-PMC ratio is roughly 3:2.

Community changes, past quarter:
- No new PMC members (project graduated recently).
- No new committers were added.

- Chao Wang was added as a committer on 2020-09-03 before IoTDB graduated.

## Project Activity:

Software development activity:

 - 0.10.1 was released on 2020-08-23.
- We are organizing the design documents on IoTDB's cwiki space
- We are working for v0.11
- Two proposals are submitted and accepted for Outreachy Intern

Meetups and Conferences:

- We had two public talks about IoTDB, one is "Use cases and
optimizations of IoTDB" on ApacheCon 2020, and another is
"IoTDB and Hadoop: Connecting the edge and the cloud open source
ecosystem for IIoT" on Hadoop meetup in Shanghai, China.


## Community Health:

As IoTDB graduated less than 30 days, the statistics provided by
the Board Report Wizard seems incorrect. I count the metrics manually.
As IoTDB has report in Sep, I just count the data in one month:

- Commit activity:
  - 434 commits in the last month
- GitHub PR activity:
  - 136 PRs opened on GitHub, last month
  - 108 PRs closed on GitHub, last month
- JIRA activity:
  - 81 issues opened in JIRA, last month
- Mailing list (dev@):
  - 196 mails were sent (down 35) and there are 35 participants (down 6)
    We think the data fluctuation is reasonable as (1) there are some
    participants from China and they have 8 days National Holiday,
    (2) there are some Chinese graduate students in the community and they
    have summar holiday and are busy at the beginning of a new semester.

IoTDB is a data store for managing large amounts of time series data such as
timestamped data from IoT sensors in industrial applications.

IoTDB has been incubating since 2018-11-18.

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

 1. Learn to discuss things on the mailing list, rather than just post an
 ISSUE created or closed message, or discuss on Github.
 2. More committers should know how to release a version. And more PPMC
 should join to vote.
 3. Write more documentation to help new contributors.

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

 No

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

 1. New contributors appears, e.g., HT Hou for PR527, liutaohua for PR578,

### IPMC/Shepherd notes:

18 Sep 2019

 IoTDB is a data store for managing large amounts of time series data such
 as timestamped data from IoT sensors in industrial applications.

 IoTDB has been incubating since 2018-11-18.

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

 1. Make the community (both the contributors and committers/PPMCs)
 more diverse  and learn to discuss things on the mailing list.
 2. More committers should know how to release a version.
 3. Write more documentation to help new contributors.

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

 No.

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

 1. Some new contributors joined the community.  E.g., PR#339 comes
 from a new contributor and it is really an interesting feature.
 2. Some contributors (who are not committers yet) are more active
 than before. E.g., Boris Zhu and Jack Tsai.
 3. More users began to report their issues. E.g.,  issue #171, #184
 and #186.

 As all the above contributions and contributors are not from the
 institutions/companies where initial committers are, we think it is a
 good signal that indicates more guys noticing the community.

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

 1. IoTDB releases its first Apache version: v0.8.0 !
 2. IoTDB is more stable and the performance is far better than
 before. However, the version is incompatible with previous version (which
 are released before IoTDB is denoted to ASF).
 3. In v0.8.0, many issues are resolved (see release notes:
 http://iotdb.apache.org/#/Materials/Release%20Notes)

    Comments:  Good to see your first release out, but more active
    involvement by the PPMC is needed in veting releases. While it improved,
    still more discussion needs to happen on the mailing list.
 - [X] (iotdb) Christofer Dutz
    Comments:  I really would like to see more mailing list usage, cause
    the number of commit messages is in strong contrast to the discussions.
    I as a mentor some time don't have a clue what the project is working
    on.

### IPMC/Shepherd notes:

19 Jun 2019

IoTDB is a data store for managing large amounts of time series data such as
timestamped data from IoT sensors in industrial applications.

IoTDB has been incubating since 2018-11-18.

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

 1. Learn to how to release a formal version;
 2. Declare a clear release roadmap;
 3. Attract more contributors joining the community.

### 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?

 We can find that IoTDB is becoming a new choice when users need a time
 series database. New users from UCI (IoTDB-104), Sangfor Inc., University
 of Liverpool (IoTDB-94) etc. are testing and proposing issues for IoTDB.

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

 1. IoTDB is more stable than before. Now it works well on a VM provided
 by Apache (iotdb-vm.apache.org).
 2. A distributed version is almost done (in the 'cluster branch').

 3. In the last 3 months, we opened 78 JIRA issues and resolved/closed 40
 JIRA issues.

    Comments: I agree that there is almost no communication on the list. I
    have mentioned this quite a number of times before, communication
    tends to increase for a few days but drops to almost 0 a few days later.
    Also I would have liked to read about how the COMMUNITY has developed,
    not the project.

    through the mailing list.

    Comments: Would like to see more discussion on the lists and people
    suggesting bug fixes being asked to join the community.  Like the list
    of the issues preventing release.

### IPMC/Shepherd notes:

20 Mar 2019

IoTDB is a data store for managing large amounts of time series data such as
timestamped data from IoT sensors in industrial applications.

IoTDB has been incubating since 2018-11-18.

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

  1. Release the first version;
  2. refactor codes which are hard to understand for new developers, and
     supply more design documents to help new developers.
  3. Attract more contributors;

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?

  - 4 new contributors joined the community: review and modify the English
  documents, add Apache Calcite adaptor demo, and discuss in the mailing
  list.
  - Mailing list:
   -- dev@mailing list: 59 emails are sent, and can be divided into 18
   threads (Apache Jenkins Pipeline notifications are exclude)
   -- reviews@mailing list: more than 420 mails are sent, for code review
   and new branch creation notifications.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  - 48 PR are proposed totally, and 42 PR are merged.
  - 16 authors have pushed 50 commits to master and 110 commits to all
  branches.
  - 31 issues (bugs, and feature requests) are logged on JIRA, 15 of them
  are resolved.
  - Dockerfile is created, which can attract more users to try IoTDB.

How would you assess the podling's maturity?

 - The project is growing.

  Christofer Dutz: Allmost no discussions on list, requested the podling to
  move discussions to the dev list.
  Dave Fisher: It looks like Christofer's request is successful so far. No
  discussion yet if any contributors are looking like good committers/PPMC
  members.
