Livy

19 Aug 2020

Livy is web service that exposes a REST interface for managing long running
Apache Spark contexts in your cluster. With Livy, new applications can be
built on top of Apache Spark that require fine grained interaction with many
Spark contexts.

Livy has been incubating since 2017-06-05.

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

 1. Start preparing towards graduation
 2.
 3.

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

 None

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

 Moderate activity on mailing lists and code as well

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

 Currently the community is working on HA
 feature and support for Spark on Kubernetes.
 Spark 3.0 support was added recently and a new release
 will be started once it has been more thought tested

Livy has been incubating since 2017-06-05.

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

 1. Grow the community to get more reviews and content.

 However, at this point, the community might want to consider that it
 is a stable project that has met its initial functional goals. With
 multiple public releases under its belt, it might be worth discussing a
 time to graduate. A substantial increase in community activity in terms of
 code contribution and related community growth might occur after a new set
 of functionality/scope is identified for the project. But to date, the
 existing community and code are following the Apache way.

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

 Livy thrift JDBC part is GA now. Currently the community is working on HA
 feature. And 0.7.0 release is ongoing.

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be

 None

How has the community developed since the last report?
 The user email list has kept a consistent flow of discussion around the project.

How has the project developed since the last report?
 Version 0.6 was released

How would you assess the podling's maturity?
 Mailing lists and project development follow the Apache way.
 The user community is active but lately the rate of change in the project
 code is lower.
 This may not be a cause for concern since it might indicate relative
 maturity in achieving the desired functionality of the project.
