Kibble

15 Aug 2018 [Rich Bowen]

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

16 May 2018 [Rich Bowen]

Apache Kibble is a suite of tools for collecting, aggregating and visualizing
activity in software projects. http://kibble.apache.org/

## Issues:

There are no issues requiring board attention at this time.

## Activity and health

This quarter has, again, been very quiet. We had some interesting discussions
(at FOSDEM, in February) with organizations and open source projects that
expressed an interest both in using, and participating in, Kibble, however
there has been no followup from them. We intend to proactively reach back out
to them in the coming month to see what their plans are.

## PMC changes:

 - Currently 12 PMC members.
 - No new PMC members added in the last 3 months
 - Last PMC addition was Rafael Weingärtner on Fri Dec 08 2017

## Committer base changes:

 - Currently 12 committers.
 - No new committers added in the last 3 months
 - Last committer addition was Rafael Weingärtner at Sat Dec 09 2017

## Releases:

We have not yet made a release.

## Mailing list activity:

All of our lists have been silent in the last month, and moderately quiet for
the duration of the quarter. We suspect that this is because many of our
community members have had other thing pressing on their attention the last
few months, and that we will see a resurgence when those things abate.

## Description:

Apache Kibble is a suite of tools for collecting, aggregating and
visualizing activity in software projects. http://kibble.apache.org/

## Issues:

There are no issues requiring board attention at this time.

## Health and Activity:

The last month has been very slow on the project development side.

Kibble participated in the Apache presence at FOSDEM, giving demos of
the project. This was extremely popular, with people standing 3-deep
to watch the demo and ask questions. This included several
organizations who indicated interest not only in using the project,
but contributing to it.

In the coming month, there's a focus on improving the documentation
to ease the user onboarding.

The ASF issued a press release about the establishment of Kibble -
https://s.apache.org/wMMa - which we hope will bring us some
additional attention.


## PMC changes:

 - Currently 12 PMC members.
 - We voted Rafael Weingärtner in to our PMC on December 6th, 2017

## Committer base changes:

 - Currently 11 committers.
 - No new committers since project establishment (October, 2017)

## Releases:

 - No releases yet. We tentatively plan to have our first release within
   the next six months.

## Mailing list and bug tracker activity:

The mailing lists have been very quiet for the last few weeks, as we
all were focused on FOSDEM. We anticipate renewed activity in the
coming month.

 Apache Kibble is a suite of tools for collecting, aggregating and
 visualizing activity in software projects.

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

## Activity:

The past month has been quiet, between various holidays, vacations,
and illnesses. I'm sure we'll spring back into life in the coming
weeks.

We continue to hear from various ASF projects that want to participate
in the data/metric gathering part of the project.

## Health report:

 The project has sufficient (3+ PMC members) oversight.

 We remain healthy as a project, although a significant number of our
 members have been not so healthy in the past weeks.

## PMC changes:

 - Currently 12 PMC members.
 - We voted Rafael Weingärtner in to our PMC on December 6th, 2017

## Committer base changes:

 - Currently 11 committers.
 - No new committers since graduation (October, 2017)

## Releases:

 - No releases yet. We tentatively plan to have our first release within
   the next six months.

## Mailing list and bug tracker activity:

  Activity was down over the past month, but we expect a resurgance in
  the coming weeks, particularly once FOSDEM is over.

## Description:
 Apache Kibble is a suite of tools for collecting, aggregating and
 visualizing activity in software projects.

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

## Activity:

 There are many voices on the dev list. In particular, we're seeing
 people from other projects who are interested in being part of our
 effort to spin up a demo instance of Kibble with live projects
 participating. We've reached out to all ASF projects, and have heard
 back from many of them. You can see these projects, and their
 metrics, at https://demo.kibble.apache.org/

## Health report:

 The project has sufficient (3+ PMC members) oversight.

 We're particularly excited about this participation from a wide
 cross-section of ASF projects, as we believe that it will result in
 steering our feature set towards functionality that is useful to
 actual projects, rather than us trying to figure that out in a
 vacuum, or based on our own academic interests. We also believe that
 this will, eventually, grow our user and developer communities as
 projects observe the benefits of the functionality we provide.

## PMC changes:

 - Currently 12 PMC members.
 - We voted Rafael Weingärtner in to our PMC on December 6th, 2017

## Committer base changes:

 - Currently 11 committers.
 - No new committers since graduation (October, 2017)

## Releases:

 - No releases yet. We tentatively plan to have our first release within
   the next six months.

## Mailing list and bug tracker activity:

  As mentioned above, mailing list activity is encouraging for this
  point in our project's development. We are very encouraged by the
  level of conversation, and by projects jumping into our demo
  instance.

## Description:
 Apache Kibble is a suite of tools for collecting, aggregating and
 visualizing activity in software projects.

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

## Activity:

 The project is starting up as a TLP within the Apache family. October
 was a month which saw many community members doing a ton of travel,
 which hampered the project somewhat. Nonetheless, the project has
 managed to set up its initial web site, code repositories, and a demo
 instance of the Kibble software suite. The community will be working
 towards defining goals and contacting interested parties (such as
 other PMCs at Apache interested in taking part in our community
 analyses). One of the many benefits of being part of the Apache family
 is ready access to a lot of interesting projects from both a technical
 and - equally important - community aspect, and we'll be working with
 the ASF projects to determine what projects would like to see emerge
 from Kibble in terms of trends, breakdowns, aggregations etc that can
 help shed some light on how projects and their communities are doing.

 There has also been discussion of what metrics are useful, or at
 least potentially useful, and how we might engage with projects to
 get their input on what metrics they consider important measures of
 project health, as this will vary from one project to another, and
 may be very different for projects outside of the ASF.

## Health report:

 The project has sufficient (3+ PMC members) oversight.
 It is too early to contemplate progression of community health,
 but we will of course keep the board apprised of any changes.

## PMC changes:

 - Currently 11 PMC members.
 - All PMC members added in the last 3 months

## Committer base changes:

 - Currently 11 committers.
 - No changes (the PMC was established in the last 3 months)

## Releases:

 - No releases yet. We tentatively plan to have our first release within
   the next six months.

## Mailing list and bug tracker activity:
 As we have just started, it makes little sense to discuss these stats yet.
