Livy

17 Apr 2024

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. Revitalization of the Community
 2. Dependable Release Cadence
 3. Focus on Contributors rather than primarily on Users (Docs for
 processes)

### 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?
 There have been a number of PRs from the community and some activity on
 the mailing lists. The overall activity is still rather low as to be
 expected with a mature project even if a podling. Activity should pick up
 again as we begin to plan our next release.

### How has the project developed since the last report?
 There have been minor improvements and bug fixes. Most activity would be
 considered maintenance during this period. Again, once we start the plan
 for the next release, I believe activity will pick up.

 A number of new mentors and committers have been added to the Livy
 podling.

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

 An initial strategic direction was part of the proposal and details the
 steps toward the iniital from the new community and the migration of
 innovations from the external forks back into the project.

 A set of JIRAs have been identified for the next release (0.8.0) which
 consist of low hanging fruit from previously stranded pull requests, meta
 tasks for empowering contributors and CVE remediation process and tasks.

16 Nov 2022

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. Reinvigorate project with new committers and PPMC
 2. Update support to latest Spark
 3. Revitalize the community

### Are there any issues that the IPMC or ASF Board need to be aware of?
 There is a proposal on the incubator email lists to revitalize the Livy
 project around an updated set of goals with the addition of new mentors,
 PPMCs, and committers.

 As the PPMC has seemed to have moved on, Jean-Baptiste Onofre and
 Alex Bozarth are the only members "active" on the private list and Alex
 has stated he does not have bandwidth to work on Livy currently, there
 is not a quorum available to vote on the proposal. As such we would like
 the IPMC to aid in passing the proposal to revitalize the project.

### How has the community developed since the last report?
 The community has been stagnant outside of the above proposal

### How has the project developed since the last report?
 There has been no development due to a lack of active PPMC/committers

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

 1. Cut a new release
 2. Fill maturity matrix
 3. Discuss about graduation

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

 No real issue, the podling is mature, and I think we can discuss about
 graduation.

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

 Several messages have been seen showing an interest for the podling.

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

 Not a lot of activity as the podling is mature.

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

 1. Decision to graduate or retire
 2.
 3.

### Are there any issues that the IPMC or ASF Board need to be aware of?
 The project is stable and being used for its desired purpose by a many
 organizations and users.
 Without any pressing need for new features there is no active development
 happening.
 If the project retires then its unclear how users would be able to get
 security fixes like the one that got release in Feb 21.
 Seeking the boards guidance on this situation.

### How has the community developed since the last report?
 Community is quiet with some user activity.

### How has the project developed since the last report?
 We have new users, but the dev community activity is pretty low.

### IPMC/Shepherd notes:
 Justin Mclean: I'm not sure why that question is directed at the board
 and I'm not sure they could answer it. IMO It would depend on if the
 project continues development or not outside of Apache and how that group
 of people handle security.

 3.

### Are there any issues that the IPMC or ASF Board need to be aware of?
 Apache Livy is a stable project that is used widely in conjuction with
 Apache Spark.
 It seems to have met its project goals and there is not much active
 development going on as a result. 2020 may definitely not be the best
 year for community activity and Livy certainly seems to have taken a hit
 on this aspect. Seeking guidance from the IPMC/Board on what could be next
 steps for the project. Its not very active but at the same time its not a
 defunct/unused project.

 Justin Mclean: As long as there is an active PPMC with at last 3 PPMC
 members providing oversight the project should be fine. Is anything else
 needed to graduate the project? Have you looked at the ASF maturity
 model? I am concerned that users questions are going unanswered on the
 dev list.

 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

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.

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

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 requires fine grained interaction with
many
Spark contexts.

Livy has been incubating since 2017-06-05.

Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:

 1. Grow the community to have more activities.
 2. Grow more contributors and committers.
 3. Regular release.

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

 None

How has the community developed since the last report?

 Activity has waned a little bit since the last report. Most of new
 activity has been to stabilize a new feature (Hive-compatible Thrift
 server). Committer activity remains a bit low.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 Mainly small bug fixes and stabilization of new code.

How would you assess the podling's maturity?
Please feel free to add your own commentary.

 A new feature (Hive-compatible Thrift server) is being implemented, and
 some code to support legacy releases of Java, Scala and Spark have been
