Knox

15 Aug 2018 [Larry McCay / Bertrand]

## Description:
 - The Apache Knox Gateway is a REST API Gateway for interacting with Apache
   Hadoop clusters. The Knox Gateway provides a single access point for all
   REST/HTTP interactions with Apache Hadoop clusters.

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

## Activity:
 - In July Apache Knox 1.1.0 was released. This marked the largest release so
   far in terms of resolved JIRAs at around 175.
 - We identified cloud usecases as an important feature set via our KIP-11
   wiki one pager. Though we have had to defer much of this to later releases
   due to concentration on other useability and management features.
 - We have identified the need for a quick 1.2.0 release to focus on some
   previously planned cloud usecases as well as a few from the community that
   were discussed during 1.1.0 release close down.

## Health report:
 - Activity on the email lists, JIRAs and commits appear to continue to grow
   and seem rather healthy.  Community Health Score 7.15.

## Description:
 - The Apache Knox Gateway is a REST API Gateway for interacting with Apache
Hadoop clusters. The Knox Gateway provides a single access point for all
REST/HTTP interactions with Apache Hadoop clusters.

## Issues:
 - None

## Activity:
 - In February Apache Knox 1.0.0 was released. While Knox has been maintaining
backward compatibility and a commitment to previous releases for the community
for some time, we did need to repackage our classes to remove the name 'hadoop'.
In order to ensure compatibility, we also released an 0.14.0 version with the old
package names as well.
 - In April we added a new committer and PMC member.
 - We identified cloud usecases as an important feature set via our KIP-11 wiki
one pager.
 - We are in the process of closing down on our 1.1.0 release and target its release
within the next couple weeks.

## Health report:
 - Activity on the email lists, JIRAs and commits appear to continue to grow and seem
rather healthy.

21 Feb 2018 [Larry McCay / Brett]

## Description:
 - The Apache Knox Gateway is an Application Gateway for interacting with the
   REST APIs and UIs of Apache Hadoop deployments. The Knox Gateway provides a
   single access point for all REST and HTTP interactions with Apache Hadoop
   clusters. Knox delivers three groups of user facing services: Proxying,
   Authentication and Client Services

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

## Activity:
 - The Apache Knox team completed the release of Apache Knox 0.14.0 and
   followed up with our 1.0.0 release which was largely the same as 0.14.0 but
   it included a repackaging of all of our class package names to remove
"hadoop" from the name. This allows downstream consumers to take on new
 features in 0.14.0 without being forced to move to new package names in case
 of incompatibilities. We have a backlog of JIRAs for 1.1.0 but will also
 begin our feature planning through the use of KIP-# wiki pages to identify
 larger features and themes for the release.

## Health report:
 - We have continued to use the KIP-# pages to drive the primary focus of each
   release and feel it is working well. The 0.14.0 release was primarily
   focused on the addition of the service discovery and simplified descriptors
(KIP-8) to improve and simplify management of topologies. It also includes
 many improvements and bug fixes. It took a bit longer than anticipated due to
 issues found during the VOTE with community testing. The Dec 14 2017 release
 date allowed for the primary focus for 0.14.0 to be more rounded out and a
 better quality release to roll into our 1.0.0 milestone in early Feb 2018.
 - Community contributions continue to show growth and growing interest and is
   encouraging.

REST/HTTP interactions with Apache Hadoop clusters.

## Issues

There are no issues requiring board attention at this time

## Activity

The Apache Knox team is in the process of an active VOTE for our 0.13.0 release.
While we were going to also try and make this our 1.0.0 release there were a
couple reasons to delay this milestone. We discovered a couple issues
that required a good bit of investigation and will require rigorous testing from
the community before they can be considered properly complete and ready. We also
took a good bit of time to try and pull in contributions from the community that
many users have been looking for. Most notably in the service definitions for proxying UIs.

## Health report:

We have continued to use the KIP-# pages to drive the primary focus of each
release and feel it is working well. The 0.13.0 release was primarily
focused on the addition of the port-mapping feature and extending UI proxying
capabilities. It also fixes a number of bugs.

The current level of collaboration is healthy and encouraging within the
community on both mailing lists and JIRAs.

## Releases

  - Last release was 0.12.0: 2017-03-20 Added support for new APIs and UIs, KnoxToken API,
release module for KnoxShell, and fixed a number of bugs - through
~35 commits.

# Description
The Apache Knox Gateway is a REST API Gateway for interacting with Apache
Hadoop clusters. The Knox Gateway provides a single access point for all
REST/HTTP interactions with Apache Hadoop clusters.

# Issues
None

# Status
The Apache Knox team released 0.12.0 was release on Mar 20th with some great
 enhancements and new features, some of the highlights are:
 * Proxy support for Solr UI and API
 * Proxy support for Gremlin REST API
 * KnoxToken API for acquiring a Knox Access Token
 * Proxy support for Zeppelin UI through Knox
 * New release module for KnoxShell
 * YARN RM HA implementation for REST API and UI
 * Support for pluggable validator for Header pre authentication provider

We have continued to use the KIP-# pages to drive the primary focus of each
release and feel it is working well. The 0.12.0 release was primarily
focused on the client library and programming model for consuming REST APIs
through Knox. There had been an increasing uptake of this library and it had
become clear that it needed to mature.

We have begun discussing what needs to land in 0.13.0 and what the strategy
is for a 1.0.0 release in this timeframe. KIPs have been created for security
improvements, port-mapping for simplified URLs and refactoring for package
renaming.

The current level of collaboration is healthy and encouraging within the
community on both mailing lists and JIRAs.

# Releases

# Status

The Apache Knox team released 0.11.0 was release on Dec 28th with some great
enhancements and new features, some of the highlights are:

- Metrics collection capabilities for the gateway server
- Basic administrator UI
- New REST API support for Druid, SOLR, Avatica
- Hadoop group mapping support.

We have continued to use the KIP-# pages to drive the primary focus of each

clear that it needed to mature.  We are discussing what really needs to land
in 0.12.0 as the number JIRAs has pushed the date out beyond our target and we
want to be able to maintain our release cadence but not at the expense of
addressing our goals. The current level of collaboration is healthy and
encouraging within the community on both mailing lists and JIRAs.

The Apache Knox Gateway is a REST API Gateway for interacting with Apache
Hadoop clusters. The Knox Gateway provides a single access point for all
REST/HTTP interactions with Apache Hadoop clusters.

# Issues
None

# Status
The Apache Knox team has just wrapped up the 0.10.0 release with a number of
contributions from the community. We missed our target for the release by over
a month. This was due to activity in the community, discussion in how to go
about testing certain contributions to determine whether goals were actually
met, etc. We've begun using wiki as a means to describe Knox Improvement
Proposals (KIPs). These are "one-pagers" that capture a particular vision for
improvement in certain areas. They should help illustrate the roadmap for the
related feature areas and map those visions to JIRAs. This helps give focus to
the releases and should also help contributors see how active JIRAs map into
the roadmap and vision.

# Releases
* 0.10.0: 2016-11-07 Added PAM support, LDAP paging, Websocket support and
 fixed a number of bugs - through ~25 commits.

 a couple contributors that are emerging as candidates to be invited as
 committers and PMC members.

# Issues
None

# Status
Actively working on maintaining a release cadence to deliver bug fixes as well
as new features in as timely a manner as possible. Most recent release missed
our target of middle June due to community testing efforts and filed JIRAs
which was great to see. Three new contributors provided patches, testing and
JIRAs. We have a number of new JIRAs already targeted for the 0.10.0 release
around LDAP improvements which will likely be a central theme to that release.

The community has voted to change PMC chair as has been communicated separately
via email of the resolution.

# Description
The Knox Gateway is a REST API gateway for securing Hadoop REST APIs at the
perimeter.  We are starting to move into the UI proxy and UI SSO space as well.

# Issues
* This quarter has seen discusson on dev@knox from a single individual
expressing concern reguarding the project's development practices.  See:
http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/knox-dev/201512.mbox/%3CCAD-Ua_ibfetwjD2Mx1rOhXzc1y0h6b4PaXZThuByuRKp9oh29g@mail.gmail.com%3E

These issues were discussed and as a result the communities existing
CTR vs RTC practices were refined, clarified and the site contribution process
documentation updated.  I believe this was a beneficial discussion.

# Status
* We did two releases this quarter which is a first.
* More importantly the 0.8.0 release is the first hilighting a non-committer
contributed feature as its primary release driver.
* The 0.7.0 release also however did include a significantly increased
amount of non-committer contributed content over prior releases.
* Starting work for a 0.9.0 release.  We may consider this for our 1.0 release.

Shepherd notes:

 acabrera: Nice active podling.  It's already done a release.  I'm not sure
 why they haven't started discussing graduation but I would support such a
 move.

 There seems to be a few security oriented software named Knox.  There may be
 a naming problem here, unless the product was consistently named Knox
 Gateway and not Knox; just my opinion.
