Lokahi

19 Aug 2009

The Lokahi project has been retired.

20 May 2009

Did not report, and will most likely be suspended this month.

18 Feb 2009

** DID NOT REPORT **

19 Nov 2008

Lokahi did not report, and has had no activity since March.  The PMC will
investigate whether or not this project should go into a dormant status.

20 Aug 2008

Very little community development is hampering this otherwise worthwhile
server (as in httpd, tomcat, geronimo, etc.) management project.

21 May 2008

Lokahi is a configuration and management console for Apache httpd, tomcat
and other web server infrastructure.

Incubating since: 2006-01-07

Testing on the MySQL port is continuing.  A Fast Feather presentation on
Lokahi was given at Apachecon in Atlanta.  Recently talk (and some code) has
begun around templating of configuration files, specifically for Apache
Httpd at this time.  And the need to extend Lokahi to manage Geronimo has
been mentioned.

Obstacles to graduation:

 *  community - now includes authors outside of the original dev community,
but additional committers are sought.

 * licensing - oracle-only backend is now 95% of the way to an alternate
MySQL backend, and soon to be enhanced with license agnostic interfaces

Lokahi is a configuration and management console for Apache httpd, tomcat
and other web server infrastructure.

Incubating since: 2006-01-07

Significant contributions have been made towards finishing the MySQL port
that was begun earlier this year.  A Fast Feather presentation on Lokahi has
been scheduled for Apachecon in Atlanta.


Obstacles to graduation:
 * community - now includes authors outside of the original dev community,
but additional committers are sought. Recent distractions, and the
temperature of discussions taking place across projects on general@i.a.o
reinforced the fact that a larger committer base is needed to graduate.
 * licensing - oracle-only backend is now 95% of the way to an alternate
MySQL backend, and soon to be enhanced with license agnostic interfaces

19 Sep 2007

The last word of discussion some 3 months ago was about infra, the creation
of the lokahi wiki site.  It has since been unused.  Some banter on the tail
end of ApacheCon EU/07 included ideas about docs and deployment help, and
some ideas about DB backends.

The last commit activity in the same timeframe were the beginnings of a
jackrabbit connector, no other activity for commits@ since then.

There has been no activity on private.

The Incubator is expressing concern over the dormant state of Lokahi, and
what can be done to revive it, since there seems to be more user interest
than developer interest at this time.

Lokahi is a configuration and management console for Apache httpd, tomcat
and other web server infrastructure.

Incubating since:  2006-01-07

Several members of the Lokahi community attended Apachecon EU in an effort
to grow the community.  A FastFeather track on what Lokahi does and what it
currently supports (slides are available
here:http://people.apache.org/~toback/presentations/Lokahi-fast-feather-05-0
4-2007.pdf ).  Specific outreach was made to the Geronimo community to help
us get a sense of what it would take to have Lokahi control the Geronimo
stack.  A significant number of committers from other projects have
subscribed to lokahi-dev over ApacheCon after discovering how this project
could solve their own infrastructure headaches or how it could be enhanced
to support their project's configuration and management. An initial roadmap
of features has been planned, and development will be moving in the
direction of the new roadmap.  An initial draft of Lokahi's data model for
the proposed switch to a Jackrabbit back-end was worked out with input from
Jackrabbit community.

The conversion to JCR takes first priority because it will mitigate existing
difficulties that hinder community-growing, namely:

(a) Oracle as db requirement, which reduces the potential user "market";
(b) inability to run Lokahi on a standalone machine, due to (a);
(c) complicated build process, partially due to (a);

JCR will provide the following benefits:
(a) database independence (run Lokahi with a file system backend to
try it out, or use a more robust storage platform for production) + embedded
Derby db
(b) lower barrier to contribution, see (a)
(c) versioned objects -- the basis for storing versioned configuration files
& foundation for a future "undo" feature requested by users.  Great for
real-world use in regulated environments which require detailed audit trails
of who-changed-what-and-when.

Obstacles to graduation:

 * community - now includes authors outside of the original dev community,
but additional committers are sought.  Recent distractions reinforced the
fact that a larger committer base is needed to graduate.

 * licensing - oracle-only backend is now 90% of the way to an alternate
MySQL backend, and soon to be enhanced with license agnostic interfaces

iPMC Reviewers:

Missing Report, pinged 2/9, 2/14

iPMC questions / comments:
* jukka: The mailing list are silent and there are no recent commits. Is
 all hope lost?
* wrowe: I have pinged; the last bundle works quite well, but there was
 integration (already started) for much more commonly available OSS DB
 backends.  The last effort on this activity was 1/5.  Will apprise as I
 learn more.  There was activity since their November Report, I'm not
 terribly worried.  (yet).
* wrowe: One thing that the podling is ready for are some participants from
 other framework and infrastructure projects who want their services
 better-integrated to step forward to help :)  A post to community w.r.t.
 suggestion might be useful.

== mod_ftp (final i.a.o report) ==

iPMC Reviewers:

The Apache HTTPD mod_ftp Project is a protocol module for Apache 2.x which
implements
RFCs: 959, 1123, 2228, 238, regarding the FTP specifications

Entered incubation: 2005-08-06;  Exited incubation for httpd TLP: 2007-02-15

The mod_ftp podling, httpd TLP and incubator PMC have voted to graduate
mod_ftp to httpd's
domain as its subproject:

Final tally;

+1; wrowe, yoavs, rdonkin, jerenkrantz, bdelacretaz, jim, leosimons
-1; none


In light of this; I declare the vote passed by all three committees,
and will begin the transfer of mod_ftp assets into the httpd project
per their consensus and further discussion to come, and [xxx] submit
this as the final mod_ftp subproject report under the incubator's
umbrella.

Lokahi is a management console for Apache httpd and Apache Tomcat.
Lokahi entered incubation in January 2006.

Top items to resolve before graduation:
 * Grow the community.  It's currently diverse, but fairly small.
 * Go through the release process at least once, issuing Apache-approved
   release and making sure all requirements, e.g. LICENSE and NOTICE
   files, are met.

The Lokahi project has kept on chugging along, incorporating numerous
contributed patches and focusing on code quality, improved MySQL
support, and and enhanced support for late version Tomcat 5.5
containers.

16 Aug 2006

Lokahi is quietly chugging along towards a 0.1 milestone release: the
vote is currently under way.

We believe there are no issues requiring the attention of the Board.
