iPMC Reviewers: rdonkin, jukka Project name - Ivy Description - Ivy is a dependencies management tool mostly used in combination with Apache Ant Date of entry - October 23rd, 2006 Top three items to resolve: 1. Growth of commiters - We are still only two commiters, which is not enough to ensure the future of Ivy 2. Release - We haven't made any release in the incubator yet, so we still don't know if we are able to release. 3. Growth of community - We have a pretty active user community, seeing more with more involvement in the project would help. Community aspects: * We have had contributions in patches from 7 contributors since our entry in the Incubator. * Some contributors are actively discussing design discussions in the dev mailing list, and replying to other users questions * We have setup our build in Gump * Xavier will give a talk at ApacheCon EU Code aspects: * The refactoring to help new developers to catch up with the code base is mostly finished. * We are currently preparing a first release, the release process is documented, and we are almost ready to submit the release to the vote of the IPMC * We have greatly improved our compatibility with Apache Maven 2 metadata * Some changes to make Ivy more simple to use and more flexible are still in development
iPMC Reviewers: jerenkrantz, yoavs, jukka, twl, noel Ivy is a dependencies management tool mostly used in combination with Apache Ant. Incubating since: 2006-10-23 Items to resolve before graduation * to be detailed Status: XH: update on 02/15, hope it isn't too late: Since the last report, the svn repository has been imported to Apache Incubator from its previous location. The JIRA issues have been imported too, the web site has been migrated to http://incubator.apache.org/ivy/. Ivy is now built by gump, but there are still problems with some tests failure in gump environment which should be resolved soon. People get familiar with the mailing lists, we see more and more people interested both on the ivy-user and ivy-dev mailing lists. Development is proceeding. The package names have been changed to org.apache.ivy from fr.jayasoft.ivy, and a refactoring to help new developers better understand the source code is currently under development. Plans: * to be detailed iPMC questions / comments: * JE: Please follow the report template next time. * noel: "to be detailed" should *be* detailed. Are you saying that the project doesn't know what to say? ----
Ivy is a new incubator podling. Functionally, Ivy is a tool for managing (recording, tracking, resolving and reporting) project dependencies. It is characterized by the following: 1. flexibility and configurability 2. tight integration with Apache Ant Xavier Hanin, the main author of Ivy, sent the proposal to join the incubator on October 23d 2006. The proposal is sponsored by the Ant PMC which voted to sponsor the entry of Ivy at the Apache Incubator. Since the proposal, the main actions which have been achieved have been: * creation of the web page http://incubator.apache.org/projects/ivy.html * creation of ivy specific mailing lists * the CLA of Xavier Hanin has been received by the ASF * the CLA of Maarten Coene and the License Grant have not been received or processed yet. The receipt and processing of the License Grant is now the limiting factor for the next steps, which are the import of the codebase in Subversion and the import of the bug reports in JIRA. The people involved with Ivy at present are : == Mentors== * Antoine Levy-Lambert * Stephane Bailliez * Steve Loughran * Stefan Bodewig == Committers== * Xavier Hanin * Maarten Coene
