Terminate the Apache Lenya Project

 WHEREAS, the Board of Directors deems it no longer in the best
 interest of the Foundation to continue the Apache Lenya project
 due to inactivity

 NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Apache Lenya
 project is hereby terminated; and be it further

 RESOLVED, that the Attic PMC be and hereby is tasked with
 oversight over the software developed by the Apache Lenya
 Project; and be it further

 RESOLVED, that the office of "Vice President, Apache Lenya" is
 hereby terminated; and be it further

 RESOLVED, that the Apache Lenya PMC is hereby terminated.

 Special Order 7F, Terminate the Apache Lenya Project, was
 approved by Unanimous Vote of the directors present.

18 Feb 2015 [Richard Frovarp / Rich]

The Apache Lenya CMS is a Cocoon based XML/XHTML content management
system.

Issues:

The board submitted several questions to the PMC after the last report.

1) No commits
 - It appears that there are few places using Lenya yet. Most of the
   previous committers have moved their development efforts on to new
   places
2) No releases
 - There haven't been any releases as there haven't been any commits
   that have warrented a new release. So while there are the PMC numbers
   to vote on a release, no one has fealt that unreleased changes are
   worth a release.
3) Questions on the list
 - Questions aren't being asked, so they aren't being answered. Queries
   to the list aren't being ignored.

The board follow up sparked conversation on list about options. It seems
that the community feels that it is a good time to move to the attic.

A formal vote on the resolution will be held. The voting time as per the
Lenya guidelines would call for a one week voting period. That means
that the resolution, if passed, would appear on next months agenda.

No new releases this quarter.
Last release: 2.0.4 on 2011-03-14

Development:

Last release: 2.0.4 on 2011-03-14

Community:

Last change to community was PMC addition in October 2011.

Activity:

The main question from the board was project activity.

The project has experienced a downturn in activity over the past 12-18
months. Activity has dropped to near zero.

Casual observation of participation indicates that there are enough active
PMC members to act on the needs of the project. However, an inquiry as to
those that were willing to participate actively in the project on votes if
necessary only resulted in two PMC members showing interest. This means that
there may not be enough PMC votes to take action on the project. The last
vote required of the PMC was October 2011.

If interest in PMC members does not pick up before the next reporting
quarter, the Attic may be the best course of action. There currently are no
committers or contributors that could be promoted to PMC status.

The board expressed question and concern over Lenya's mention of a large number of "emeritus" PMC members. It was noted that the board (and bylaws) do not recognize the concept of an emeritus PMC member. However, if this is simply internal bookkeeping that allows the PMC to honor past contributions while keeping the PMC to active members, the board had no concern.

There was concern over the large number, and the board was curious on what could be happening to cause so many PMC members to "leave" the PMC. Sander was to investigate.

Approved by General Consent.

21 Feb 2007 [Gregor J. Rothfuss / Sam]

Things in Lenya land are kinda quiet lately, although the community
keeps chugging along on the code base. One thing were we have been
dropping the ball on have been maintenance releases, but we addressed
that this quarter: a vote for it just passed.

I am personally concerned about the long-term health of the project. A
few committers have either changed jobs or otherwise moved on, which has
reduced the ranks of active committers considerably. It remains to be
seen if we as a community can attract enough new blood to make up for
this decline. Definitely something for the next quarter to talk about on
the dev mailing list.

Work on the 1.4 code base continues, with a new RC imminent. The stable
1.2 branch receives the occasional fix, but no new development.

There are no new committers this quarter, and no isssues requiring board
attention at this time.

Justin and Jim indicated their desire that a Director keep an eye on the project, due to the concern noted in the report about the long-term health of it. Sam volunteered to start watching it.

Approved by General Consent.

15 Nov 2006 [Gregor J. Rothfuss / Cliff]

The Lenya project added two new committers in the last period, Joern
Nettingsmeier and Renaud Richardet.

There were no new releases in the period. A maintenance release 1.2.5
has been proposed though for the next week.

The codebase saw some nice enhancements in the period:

* unified resource handling
* flowscript integration simplified
* continued switching to UUID for content

No legal issues at this time.

Approved by General Consent.

16 Aug 2006 [Gregor J. Rothfuss / Greg]

The last three months have been a busy time at Lenya. A lot of code
was written, and major progress made on trunk. A short list of
enhancements:

* almost all content is now referenced by UUID
* built-in Lucene index gets updated every time a document changes
* more code moved to modules
* arbitrary, configurable meta data introduced
* unit tests are run nightly again

The PMC discussed, voted on and published its guidelines at
http://lenya.apache.org/guidelines.html

No new committers have been added in the period, but some users show
promise for the next period.

Henri asked if we care about the sporadic labelling projects have for Bylaws, Guidelines, Charter? It was agreed that the resolutions that create the projects will specify the legal name, but the concept for all of them are the same.

No new releases this quarter, which towards the end of the quarter led
to the election of a new RM (Antonio Gallardo) and a discussion about
the best way to handle release duties, and several people volunteered
to do releases in the future until Antonio stepped up as a new RM. We
also added one new commiter, Felix Roethenbacher. Several new users
are standing out with their contributions to the Wiki and code
discussions.

Code
A lot of work went into better integration of Jackrabbitt and breaking
up the trunk code base into modules. We also added support for
OpenDocument, improved WebDAV support, added a Wiki module and added
another editor option, FckEditor. Our zone also received a fair amount
of attention and now has nightly documentation drafts and nightly
updated demo sites for both trunk and the 1.2x branch.

Legal

Approved by General Consent.

16 Nov 2005 [Gregor J. Rothfuss / Justin]

Community:
- No new release this quarter. Our regularly scheduled maintenance
releases haven't been done in the last quarter because the RM (me)
didn't get around to it. The long-awaited 1.4 release was further
delayed due to scope creep. Getting releases out again will be a
priority for the next period.

- Our experience with Summer of Code was a mixed bag. We had 2
students working on projects. One of them unfortunately failed the
project (he didn't submit code and was generally unresponsive during
the project duration). The other student, Robert Goene, contributed
good work on Lucene / Nutch integration. The code review of his
contribution sparked a number of new ideas for the future, and the
project is currently working on integrating his changes.

- We voted in 2 new committers, Josias Thoeny and Paul Ercolino. Both
have been contributing code for quite a while, and had been 'under
investigation' as potential committers for quite some time. The Lenya
PMC had a discussion about the optimal length of time before someone
ought to be proposed as a committer, trying to balance community
dynamics and 'committer inflation'.

General status
---------------------------------
* For Lenya 1.4 it is planned to use a DB backed (JCR...) content
 repository.  Unfortunately we didn't made big progress towards that
 for several reasons; much time was spent with the TLP move, the
 1.2.1 release, and release guidelines/plans.  Beside that, the
 repo. integration requires some major detail changes and thus will
 bind a lot of resources, which the community couldn't afford yet.

* The content repo. integration needs more active discussion.
 This is a high priority topic for Lenya's future and acceptance.

* TLP move complete including source files and infrastructure
 resources


Progress
---------------------------------

* The Lenya community set up a general release plan and a release how
 to. See
  - http://wiki.apache.org/lenya/ReleaseHowTo
  - http://wiki.apache.org/lenya/ReleasePlan
 It is planed to make small releases every 2-3 months

* Lenya 1.2.1 was released at the end of December along the above
 schedule.  This is the first TLP release.

* Lenya 1.2.2 will be released at the end of February

* Lenya 1.4 branch is under active development.
 At the moment this branch mainly contains minor architectural
 changes and most bug fixes from the 1.2.x branch.

 A lot of progress has been made on the 1.4 branch to remove
 deprecated Cocoon technologies, such as Actions and XSP.

 A major problem is to stabilize new medium features and to keep the
 1.2.x branch in sync with the trunk. Due to the instability of the
 trunk, some patches can not be ported and tested easily from 1.2.x
 branch.

 We need to set up a feature list for 1.4.

* Lenya now has Gump integration, although currently against the
 Cocoon trunk. Efforts to enable a Cocoon 2.1 Gump run have so far
 received no interest from the Cocoon community.

Issues needing Board attention
---------------------------------
* Make sure Lenya PMC chair has access to necessary files in
 /foundation and /board to do his PMC job (?)

New commiters and new PMC members
---------------------------------
* We voted 3 new commiters

        - Andreas Kuckartz
        - Wolfgang Kaltz
        - Torsten Schlabach

* We welcomed Antonio Gallardo as a new Lenya PMC member

General status
---------------------------------
* Switched from CVS to SVN

* Lenya was graduated from an incubator project to an Apache TLP.

* TLP move is almost complete. SVN, mailinglists and web space moved
 from incubator space to Lenya's own TLP resources. Wiki still needs
 to be moved.

* Website is currently being updated

* New commiters sent their CLAs and accounts are almost setup. CLAs
 sometimes seem to get lost. Andreas and Torsten are still trying to
 get their CLAs on file.

Progress
---------------------------------
* The Lenya community is preparing the 1.2.1 release. This release
 contains a lot of bug fixes since 1.2 and a refactored build
 process, which lowers the entry barrier for new users.  After we
 cleaned up the website and the docs we will release maybe in a few
 weeks

* Users actively support the 1.2.1 release with testing and filing
 bugzilla reports

* Lenya 1.4 branch was created. We plan to integrate a JCR repository
 (JackRabbit). After the 1.2.1 release we will concentrate on the
 repo integration.

* External WYSIWYG editor (Kupu, BXE) integration has been improved.
 We use svn:externals to circumvent separate checkouts for users.

Apache Lenya Project approved by General Consent.
