Maven

19 Jul 2017 [Robert Scholte / Jim]

Apache Maven is a widely-used project build tool, targeting mainly Java
development. Apache Maven promotes the use of dependencies via a
standardized coordinate system, binary plugins, and a standard build
lifecycle.

* Issues

  <<There are no issues requiring board attention at this time.>>

* Activity

  Maven 3.5.0 was been released. Only a few bug/regressions have been
  registered, which makes this a successful release. Merging the branches
  for Maven 3.5.1 has started.

  We're in the middle of discussions regarding disaster recovery and backup
  of Central. The current 1:1 files based has exceded the acceptable size.
  Per July 1 2017 the backup server has been shut down. We're working on
  identifying different scenarios, with their infrastructure requirements
  over time, and we'll come back to ask for resources once we have better
  visibility.

  We've been informed on CVE-2012-6153, a bug in Apache Commons HttpClient.
  Maven itself uses a more recent version, so that project isn't affected.
  However, the wagon-webdav-jackrabbit was still using quite an old version,
  so currently we're rewriting the code and will push a new version ASAP.

  Java 9 has reached a new phase. We notice that the community is starting
  to experiment with it and some new issues are exposed is a couple of
  maven-plugins. In general they are easy to fix, but it also implies that
  we have to do quite some "just for java 9"-releases of plugins.

 Maven is moving forward again! Stephen Connolly did a great job as
 the release manager and succeeded in releasing 2 pre-releases of
 Maven-3.5.0 and improved the CI part a lot. To get there we had to
 take quite some hurdles, so Stephen did a retrospective on
 Maven 3.5.0-alpha-1.

 [SUMMARY] [DISCUSS] Retrospective on Maven 3.5.0-alpha-1, March 19 2017
 ---
 * What is working well

 Seems we have some consensus here:

 * CI is working better (not perfect)
 * We are discussing changes before pushing them to master
 * Getting a release out the door

 * What is not working well

 Slightly harder to consolidate here, but there are some themes that I can
 identify:
 * we need a better way to work with branches. There are traceability
 issues when looking at branches on the CI server. There are issues with
 continuous rebasing. There are questions about what is in flight for the
 next release vs what is in flight for a future release. (I suspect this is
 all intermingled and I'll start a thread to debate potential solutions
 shortly)
 * we need a better process to scope changes for different target releases.
 (The chaotic process for 3.5.0 was a one time attempt to deal with the
 reality of the reset, so I never expected us to repeat it... but we still
 need to come up with a process to plan what will be in each release)
 (I'll start a thread shortly to see if we can come up with a process to
 use as an experiment for 3.5.1)
 * we need to agree on some common terminology. What is a bug, what is a
 rfe, what is a breaking change. What is the severity of these things. What
 severity issues affect different release types (alpha, beta, etc) How are
 we versioning Maven and how does severity affect versioning. (I'll start a
 thread on this shortly)
 * discussion threads that go on forever without coming to a conclusion.
 (We just need to have to remember to post a [SUMMARY] or call a [VOTE] to
 close them out... I shall lead by example here)
 * ubuntu and Windows are not enough OSes to test on (the PMC needs to
 decide if we want to ask for budget to get such extra nodes... otherwise
 this is out of our hands... Michael-O should start a discussion to see if:
 1. This is what the committers want and 2. To find out how much what we
 want would cost and see about requesting off the board in our next budget)
 * how do we grow our community (I think we just have to get momentum going
 and the contributions will come... the project has looked dead, who's
 going to contribute to a dead project... if anyone disagrees please start
 up a discussion thread)
 ---

 Plans are made for the next minor and major version of Maven, now that the
 train is moving again.

 Oracle expects to have Java 9 released in the period we publish our next
 board-report. Regarding JSR-376 there is no consensus between the Jigsaw
 team and the expert group regarding the latest proposals. It is still
 uncertain what the effects will be and in which way Maven (as most
 dominant buildtool) can or must take its responsibility to save Java.
 Robert is taking part in several discussions with other large
 organizations sharing the same concerns.
 Once it is clear what Java 9 will offer and in case this collides with
 the fundaments of Maven, the Maven PMC will be informed and might need to
 vote on what to do with the new situation.

development. Apache Maven promotes the use of dependencies via a
standardized coordinate system, binary plugins, and a standard build
lifecycle.

* Issues

* Activity

  It has been quite a while since we did our latest release of Maven
  (3.3.9, 2015-11-15). The number of fixed issues for 3.4.0 is over 100 and
  there are enough good improvements which deserve a new release. Now that
  we control the codebase of Maven Artifact Resolver (formally known as
  Aether), quite some changes/bugfixes have been applied regarding managed
  dependencies. The intention is good, but the results are that the behavior
  and resolution has changed. This has led to reverts, recommits and a lot
  discussions about what is right. There's still no consensus, but we need a
  solution since this is blocking a new release.
  There has been a vote to reset 3 git repositories to a previous revision,
  i.e maven.git, maven-integration-testing.git and maven-resolver.git. The
  vote has passed and actions are in progress.
  We'll drop Maven 3.4.0 and rearrange all issues marked as fixed for 3.4.0,
  starting with a subset for 3.5.0. To prevent the same situation we must
  change our commit/push-style and work more with branches.

  Jason van Zyl has resigned as member of the JSR-376 Expert Group. Robert
  Scholte has replaced his seat on behalf of the Apache Maven team.

  Regarding the Jigsaw project Robert Scholte and Brian Fox have shared
  concerns regarding the naming strategy for automodules(jars without a
  module-info; names are based on the filename). The majority of the Maven
  PMC agrees and recognizes the issue from other systems. Robert and Brian
  are working on a paper with proposals.

  Migration of Maven's EC2 instance + S3 bucket (INFRA-12729) has been
  successfully completed with great help of infrastructure: in addition to
  expected lower cost, the new service gives better performance, which
  permitted work on content analysis. Sadly, growth of data is bigger than
  expected: we've already hit a full disk (INFRA-13213) even if provisionned
  capacity looked sufficient initially. We need to work again with infra to
  find a sustainable solution.

Maven Board Report - October 2016
---------------------------

Apache Maven is a widely-used project build tool, targeting mainly Java
development. Apache Maven promotes the use of dependencies via a
standardized coordinate system, binary plugins, and a standard build
lifecycle.

* Issues

 There are no issues requiring board attention at this time.

* Activity

 Some new required changed have been identified to improve the Maven
 ecosystem.
 One proposal handles the support for identifying the platform as part of
 the Maven Artifact coordinate.
 Another proposal will introduce a new metadatafile besides the pom.xml we
 now call Project Dependency Trees Schema: The Project Dependency Trees
 artifact defines all the side artifacts of a project as well as each
 artifacts tree of dependencies. This can be used by consumers to decide
 what the consumers effective tree of dependencies is as well as allowing
 consumers to perform intelligent substitutions in the tree. By providing
 the entire tree we can reduce the number of requests a consumer needs to
 make in order to resolve all the artifacts the consumer requires.
 Others can already join to improve these proposals. Once all details are
 clear, we'll search for contact with third parties related to artifact
 management.
 https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/MAVEN/Requests+for+Comment

 While the specs of Java 9 are still being adjusted, the work to support
 these new features are still in progress. First result are already there
 and have been shared at JavaOne.

 IP Clearance for Aether, renamed to Apache Maven Artifact Resolver, has
 been finalized:
 http://incubator.apache.org/ip-clearance/maven-aether.html

 During an audit of expenses, Maven's EC2 instance + S3 bucket were found
 expensive and under-utilized: we studied both issues with infra and
 a new hosting solution was found that will be less expensive and easier to
 use for the PMC. Migration is under way (INFRA-12729).

  * As announced previously, we are starting to release 3.x.x line of plugins
    with Maven 3 and Java 6 minimum requirements (no more compatible with
    Maven 2.2.1 and Java 5).

    To fulfill this, we needed to release several shared components with the
    same requirements which will be used within the plugins.

  * We did a yearly Jira issues cleanup, following the same process as the
    cleanup done in september: with the same "3-years without update" limit,
    this time we closed ~120 issues (600 in september), and got feedback only
    on a few issues. Then these issues were worked on with reporter's help and
    fixed. This makes us think that the process gives us what we expected:
    ability to efficiently close orphan issues and detect issues that still
    have users active interest.

  * On behalf of the Apache Maven team, Jason van Zyl has become a member of
    the Java Platform Module System (JSR 376) expert group: see
    http://openjdk.java.net/projects/jigsaw/spec/

  * Prepations for adopting JDK9 Jigsaw have started.

* Health Report

  We have a few new committers and PMC members, replacing people becoming less
  active over time: the team is slowly rotating at every level.

  Even if Maven is stable, we have many Jira issues opened against our many
  sub-projects (Maven core, 46 plugins and their dependencies), more than what
  the current team can triage and fix, with or without active help from initial
  reporters: that's why yearly Jira cleanups, if not perfect, is the best
  solution we have found to focus our work. We expect to do such cleanup each
  year unless stats show that it's not useful any more (which is unlikely since
  some users tend to report issues but not give reproducible test cases or
  required explanations when asking for more details).

Apache Maven is a widely-used project build tool, targeting mainly Java
development. Apache Maven promotes the use of dependencies via a
standardized coordinate system, binary plugins, and a standard build
lifecycle.

* Issues
 There are no issues requiring board attention at this time.

* General Information

 * As announced previously, we are starting to release 3.x.x line of plugins
   with Maven 3 and Java 6 minimum requirements (no more compatible with
   Maven 2.2.1 and Java 5).

 * We did an automatic Jira cleanup, closing isues that did not have any
   activity for 3 years with a message proposing to reopen if necessary.
   On 600 issues closed, approx 15 issues were reopened, often with complaints
   about our attitude. We understand and are not completely happy with this
   way of handling issues reported by users but did not find better way to
   purge old history that was de-facto closed (and often without user feedback
   when trying to work on it, but not always as reopenings prove).

 * This year, we had one talk about Maven during ApacheCon: CORE Europe,
   and a few Maven developers were present to discuss and work/party together.

 * The PMC is working on revitalizing: change habits (invite active
   committers, resign when not active), discuss if more formal changes are
   useful, rephrase "binding/non-binding" in votes summary that
   gives the wrong impression that some votes don't count (when they are in
   fact only "non-legally binding").

Apache Maven is a widely-used project build tool, targeting mainly Java
development. Apache Maven promotes the use of dependencies via a
standardized coordinate system, binary plugins, and a standard build
lifecycle.

* General Information

  * The main Maven site has been reworked: it has been updated to use the
    fluido skin and content has been streamlined.

  * All plugins are now at minimum of Maven 2.2.1 version requirement[1].
    The plan is now to start 3.x.x line of plugins with Maven 3 and Java 6
    minimum requirements

  * The largest non-apache maven community, mojo@codehuas.org was
    affected by the codehaus shutdown. The community made a succesful
    move to google groups and https://github.com/mojohaus

Apache Maven is a widely-used project build tool, targeting mainly Java
development. Apache Maven promotes the use of dependencies via a
standardized coordinate system, binary plugins, and a standard build
lifecycle.

* General Information

  * Work on plugin releases to define common 2.2.1 minimum Maven version
    and Java 5 requirements is near done: automated report [1] shows 48 plugins
    are ready from 49. The plan to start 3.x.x line of plugins with Maven 3 and
    Java 6 minimum requirements has been announced [2]: implementation will
    start shortly.

  * JIRA migration from Codehaus to Apache was done on April 5th: 60 Maven
    projects were migrated [3].
    The PMC thanks Codehaus for the support during this migration and more
    generally for the great service given to us for many years.
    The PMC thanks Mark Thomas, volunteer at Infra, for the huge work done on
    import.

  * There was a major Maven 3.3.1 release with new requirements:
    - Support for Win9x has been dropped
      -> mvn.bat has been renamed to mvn.cmd, as well as for mvnDebug
    - Java *Runtime* Environment 1.7 required
      -> Improved toolchains support, so plugins can still use older JDKs
         (e.g. maven-compiler-plugin)


* Community

  * Currently 54 committers and 27 PMC members in the project.

  * No new PMC members added in the last 3 months

* General Information

 * Work on plugin releases to define common 2.2.1 minimum Maven version
   and Java 5 requirements continues: we created an automated report [1]
   that shows 33 plugins are ready from 49. Once finished, we expect to
   start 3.x line of plugins with Maven 3 and Java 6 minimum requirements.

 * There was a contest to create a new Maven logo and create a mascot:
   the winning logo is [2] and the winning mascot (officially christened)
   "The Maven Owl" [3]. Work is now in progress to integrate it to the Maven
   site.

 * We're studying Jira migration from Codehaus to Apache for better end-users
   consistency, since we've got feedback about users lost when requiring to
   create a Jira account at Codehaus.

 * Compliance with ASF source header policy

   We enabled rat check on every build in maven-parent POM 25 to ensure full
   compliance from now on.

Apache Maven is a widely-used project build tool, targeting mainly Java
development. Apache Maven promotes the use of dependencies via a
standardized coordinate system, binary plugins, and a standard build
lifecycle.

* General Information

 * SSL was enabled for central during August and Maven 3.2.3 was released
   to use https by default in super POM [1].

 * Description of central repository position in Maven ecosystem has been
   updated to match latest evolutions [2].

 * A lot of plugin releases are done to define common 2.2.1 minimum Maven
   version requirement. We expect in the near future to update the minimum
   requirement to Maven 3.0 (JRE 5), which will permit to make some cleanup
   in plugins code, then Maven core.

 * JDK8 compatibility status: latest informations available in our wiki [3].

   [MCOMPILER-228] identified as JDK 8 bug, fixed in JDK1.8.0_40

 * Compliance with ASF source header policy

   8 plugins have been fixed this quarter.
   Only maven-eclipse-plugin, wagon, surefire and a few components are not yet
   compliant (on 106 release roots).
   We're preparing to enable rat check on every build in next maven-parent
   POM, to ensure full compliance from now on.

 * Update requirements of LICENSE and NOTICE files in source control

   Currently no change cause there is no real guide line nor a definitive
   decision made by the ASF.

 * Source download link requirement

   The site.xml descriptor for all plugins has been changed accordingly to
   reflect the requirements based on MNGSITE-152 [4].
   This means that every new release contains appropriate download link [5]
   and an Apache License link [6].

   Every release which has been reported this quarter contains already those
   links.

   Issue closed: this report is the last one with status on this topic.

* Community

 * Karl Heinz Marbaise joined the PMC (2014-08-25)

 * No new committer this quarter (last added on 2014-03-17)

 * ApacheCon Europe: we don't have any talk, but a few developers said they
   were attending, then expect to meet and discuss about Maven future plans.

 * Mailing List activity

   Users mailing list activity has reduced a little bit over the last six
   month in comparison to 2013 whereas the developer list activity is more or
   less constant within the same time period.

@Brett: Please update report with PMC and committers. Also is there a plan for reaching compliance?

16 Apr 2014 [Stephen Connolly / Roy]

Apache Maven is a widely-used project build tool, targeting mainly Java
development. Apache Maven promotes the use of dependencies via a
standardized coordinate system, binary plugins, and a standard build
lifecycle.

* General Information

 We have been making slow but steady progress on our compliance with
 the ASF source header policy. Of our current 105 release roots, we now
 have only 23 release roots that still report issues using the Apache Rat
 tooling. This is down 3 and 7 respectively compared to the last board
 report. One of the measures that we have been using for voting on
 releases is that the Rat report is either better or no worse than
 the previous release. Once we get more release roots compliant, we
 will configure Rat to fail those builds if they are no longer compliant.

 There has been no update to the LEGAL JIRAs concerning the confusion over
 the the requirements of LICENSE and NOTICE files in source control:
 LEGAL-26[4], LEGAL-27[5], LEGAL-31[6] and LEGAL-136[7].

 * JDK8

 The team has started to verify if Apache Maven and all underlying projects
 are JDK8 ready. We've checked more than 50% of all the release roots. All
 issues, either to be fixed by Oracle or by the Apache Maven Team, have been
 gathered under MNG-5551[1] with extra info on the wiki[2]

 We've spotted 2 blocking issues in the JDK which have already been fixed
 by Oracle.

 There's still 1 regression which is planned to be fixed for JDK9.[3]

 We have been making slow but steady progress on our compliance with

 We are starting to see some traction from others with respect to
 resolving the confusion over the requirements of LICENSE and

 Packt Publishing contacted the PMC with respect to the distribution
 of royalties. We informed Packt that the royalties are required to
 be added to the ASF account and our understanding is that this has
 been done.

Apache Maven is a widely-used project build tool, targeting mainly Java
development. Apache Maven promotes the use of dependencies via a
standardized coordinate system, binary plugins, and a standard build
lifecycle.

* General Information

 We have begun reviewing our compliance with the ASF source header policy.
 Counting the number of release roots we ended up at the number 108, after
 retiring 3 components. Using Apache Rat we then determined that 72 of our
 release roots did not fully comply with the source header policy. At the
 time of writing we have pushed that number down to 31. Most of the
 offending files so far have been in integration tests.

 We are currently in discussion with the legal-discuss@a.o list to clarify
 whether our understanding of the requirements for NOTICE and LICENSE files
 in source control are aligned with legal's thinking. If our current
 understanding proves to be at odds with legal's thinking then we may
 have to ensure that there are NOTICE and LICENSE files checked in for
 each and every module (i.e. not just the 108 release roots, but also each
 sub-module of those release roots)

17 Jul 2013 [Olivier Lamy / Brett]

Apache Maven is a widely-used project build tool, targeting mainly Java
development. Apache Maven promotes the use of dependencies via a
standardized coordinate system, binary plugins, and a standard build
lifecycle.

* General Information

 Olivier Lamy resigned as PMC Chair.
 Stephen Connolly has been elected by the PMC to act as PMC Chair.

 There have been a number of discussions on the project mailing lists with regard to the foundations
 requirements for releases and the exact content of source release zip files. The areas of concern to
 the Maven project are:

   * Ensuring that all releases have a corresponding source release zip in the dist area

   * Ensuring that the NOTICE and LICENSE files in source release zip files are correct
     (a number of small typographic errors have been identified in some files and are in the process
     of being corrected)

   * Ensuring that the appropriate compliance with the foundations requirements on source headers
     has been achieved. The majority of issues in this regard is with "test resources", these are
     data files which are used as resources for the integration tests used when releasing Maven and
     Maven plugins.

     There is the potential that some very small fraction of tests will only identify
     the bugs they are designed to catch if there is no header comment in the file. Adding headers
     to these test resources runs the risk of invalidating the test suite, so the current position
     of the PMC is as follows:

       - No releases will be permitted by the PMC where source files are violating the foundation
         policy on license headers.
       - A temporary exception will be made for legacy test resources, i.e. those test resources which
         were encorporated in previous releases of the component
       - An exception will otherwise be allowed for test resources where it can be clearly shown that
         the test cannot function correctly when the test resource includes a license header.
       - New test resources will only be excempt in those cases where it can be clearly shown
         that the license header is interferring with the sensitivity of the test.

     Once we have identified the scope of the issue, we intend to see whether we need to put a
     plan in place to resolve the issue, or whether it is an issue that can be resolved relatively
     quickly.

 We are currently working on a tool to have a list of missing sources release zip in dist area and
 setting up additional tooling to have a list of files with missing license header.

* General Information

 Maven 1 has been declared officialy EOL.
 (http://maven.apache.org/maven-1.x-eol.html).

 A security fix core version has been release due to the security issue
 CVE-2013-0253.

 Maven core is moving from Sonatype Aether to Eclipse Aether for its 3.1
 version: it has the downside of implying some non backward compatible changes
 for a few plugins. The plan is to first fix those plugins to have them working
 with the future new core release.

 We have a usual release numbers of components and plugins (see below).

AI: Sam discuss reason for rejecting the report

16 Jan 2013 [Olivier Lamy / Brett]

Apache Maven is a widely-used project build tool, targeting mainly Java
development. Apache Maven promotes the use of dependencies via a
standardized coordinate system, binary plugins, and a standard build
lifecycle.

* General Information

The PMC noticed that it had not, historically, been placing releases
for plugins and components into the Apache dist area. All the current
releases have been published on dist, all the historical releases have
been handed off to the infrastructure team to be published on the
dist archive, and the release procedure documentation has been
updated to ensure that new releases end up on /dist.

Main website has been moved to CMS/svnpubsub and components
documentation to svnpubsub (without CMS). Tweaks have been found to
limit the content in main site's extpaths.txt to make main site
publish efficient. We still suffer from severe performance issues with
component documentation publication and we are working on workarounds
in our publication process to improve.

* General Information

 A vote has decided moving sources to git
 (http://markmail.org/message/il5mpcyn2lscxrwn).  4 people are volunteer to
 help on INFRA tasks.  All the svn tree won't be migrated immediately as we
 have some sub projects which need to be discussed on the final git migration
 format (plugins, shared paths) A wiki page is available for ETA on the
 migration: https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/MAVEN/Git+Migration.
 3 sub projects has been migrated to git: surefire, wagon and scm.  We are
 discussing on moving others subprojects.

 The distribution has been moved to use svnpubsub.

 We have started discussion on moving web site too as we now have a plugin
 to deploy Maven web sites to svn.

* General Information

 * Vote to use aether 1.13 and sisu 2.3.0 as dependencies of Apache Maven

 * Progress on the Memorandum of Understanding with Sonatype continues, though
   it has been slowed by the availability of John Casey and others to continue
   hammering out the language. It seems that we're down to the point where
   we're fine-tuning legal definitions and such in the MOU as it's written.

   John hopes this effort will be completed in the next month, though it
   depends on the extent to which we need to renegotiate the terms with
   Sonatype after we're done pinning down the legal ramifications.

 * Recently, Jason van Zyl has offered to donate some changes Sonatype
   has made to Maven in a private set of branches. It appears they have
   lost interest in the idea of releasing the divergent changes under the
   new name of Tesla, and Jason has asked whether we would be interested
   in re-integrating the new work to the Maven project.

   It appears that some of the changes are fairly extensive, and that
   several new features have been implemented. The Maven PMC is discussing
   this situation cautiously, trying to secure a code grant, so that we may
   bring in the changes to a branch and then start work to integrate them
   feature-by-feature, for features that are championed by one or more PMC
   members.

   We are still too early in the discussion to determine what the eventual
   outcome is likely to be.

 Sonatype has updated their site to acknowledge both the
 Maven and Apache Maven marks as ASF marks.

 The PMC is working on a MOU between the ASF and Sonatype
 regarding acceptable usage of the maven.org domain. A draft
 copy has been provided to Wayne for feedback and review. Shane
 has also seen the draft MOU and provided some initial comments
 (on July 5th). John Casey has indicated his resolve in following
 up on this effort.

Larry requested that Legal review precede sending drafts out, as opposed to being something that is done afterwards. Noirin suggests that an alternative (for future consideration) is to ask the other party to produce the first draft.

15 Jun 2011 [Jim Jagielski]

As anticipated, the board's action of removing Sonatype employees from the
Maven PMC, and assigning myself as Chair, resulted in quite a bit of
discussion, debate, concern and (quite frankly) FUD within the PMC. Email
posts from various board members were very influential in clarifying the
concerns and the rationale. After the hub-bub about the action, the PMC
is recovering nicely and returning to a more functional status-quo.

I met with Wayne Jackson, CEO of Sonatype for lunch, and we discussed
the trademark situation. Sonatype's main concern is regarding the usage
of the maven.org domain. The PMC, especially John Casey, are working to
define what usages of maven.org would be allowed and what timetable
for transition would be invisioned. I plan to, this week, contact Wayne,
and determine the status of the attribution on their end.

AI Jim: Send Sonatype a letter regarding the brand name issue.

16 Feb 2011 [Brian Fox / Roy]

Maven Board Report - February 2011
---------------------------

* General Information

 This month was another active month on the PMC list:

 1) Nothing new has happened wrt Jim and/or Shane talking to Sonatype
    about the Maven mark.  I believe this is key to resolving many of
    the remaining issues.

 2) Ralph Vetoed a commit that introduced updated Sisu dependencies
    into Maven core because the license had recently changed to
    EPL. This caused some heated but mostly rational discussion on
    the PMC list and a few outbursts on the dev list. Ultimately some
    positive came from this in the form of a new policy on core
    dependencies[1] and in the dual licensing of two key dependencies
    as ASL/EPL (Aether and Sisu).

 3) As requested, the PMC produced a trademarks-watchlist.txt file[2]
    to track trademark related issues. There are a number of todos in
    this file that need follow up, but the majority of these are not
    new issues/products.

 4) Sonatype launched a new Maven Central search engine[3] which
    prompted another round of discussions about the mark and central
    itself.

 5) Several members of the PMC have expressed frustration with
    interference by some directors and other members outside of the
    PMC. This caused at least one email thread to be taken completely
    off any lists between PMC members directly. Note that no
    decisions are/have taken place externally, but I think this is
    still definitely an area to take notice of.

 6) Some discussion took place around accepted uses of "maven" in the
    names of plugins. This was covered in the policy the PMC was
    drafting that was derailed so we have not voted on an official
    position. I believe so far no conclusion has been reached on this
    as Shane's questions to legal were answered with more
    questions. These types of uses of a mark and whether they are
    potentially infringing would be known best to the related PMC but
    it's unclear how that gets reflected in the official policy as
    published.

 7) There is a vote pending to clarify the PMC expectations around
    Maven Central

* under a category a license
or
* under a category b license and approved by a majority vote of the pmc"

Action item: Shane draft a formal letter for the PMC to approve.

19 Jan 2011 [Brian Fox / Roy]

* General Information
 Work continues both on Maven 3.x and various plugins and shared
 components as seen in the list below. Maven 3.x is continuing to
 follow a fairly regular 6 week release cycle.

 Last month, the board asked the PMC several questions:
 1) is the "Maven" name for the project important to the PMC (as a
 whole), or not?
 2) we need the PMC to take point on addressing third party uses of
 the Maven mark
 3) Maven Central needs clarification: what the heck is it, who
 technically runs it and how it fits into the Maven community's
 ecosystem.

 The answer to #1 is yes.

 In response to #2, The PMC has recently been discussing a trademark
 policy to cover the use of Maven and MVN in products and services
 related to our project and community. This work is still ongoing,
 but the intent is to finalize and publish the initial version of
 our policy soon.

 In response to #3, Maven Central is a repository of Open Source
 artifacts stored in the Maven 2 layout. This is the default
 repository used by Maven to retrieve dependencies at build
 time. Think of it along the same lines of an RPM repository for
 Linux.

 We have been discussing ownership and management of Maven Central.
 I had done some digging and reviewing of the project charter and
 initial discussions around the time of the Maven project creation.
 I came to the conclusion that the repository was never specifically
 in the scope of the PMC, although historically members of the PMC
 were managing it. There is some disagreement with my position at
 this time and we will continue to work through it.

 We also had various discussions about dependencies and their
 projects moving from Codehaus to Sonatype and/or Eclipse.
 Specifically the projects of concern are Modello, Plexus and
 Aether. The first two have historically been developed primarily by
 Maven Developers and consumed by Maven.

 What happens inside external projects is not within the scope of
 this PMC, although it is appropriate for us to monitor key
 dependencies in case they are no longer appropriate for us to use
 or otherwise become unavailable to us. No specific action has been
 undertaken by the PMC for any of these projects at this time.

 Most significant news this period is the final release of Maven 3.0 was
 released on October 8th.
 In the week since the release, no major issues have been reported against the
 release, likely due
 to the focus on ITs and the many betas and RC's we released previously. The
 draft press release announcing 3.0 has been sent to PRC.

Maven Board Report - July 2010
---------------------------

* General Information
This quarter we had many plugin and shared module releases in addition to
one Beta of Maven 3. Several committers have put in a lot of effort to
introduce some new parallel build modes and this involved updating many
components to become thread-safe or to mark them explicitly not
thread-safe. A new beta of M3 is likely going to be staged in the next
week and this will hopefully be one of the last before we move to an
official release and on to exciting things in 3.1.

Maven Board Report - January, 2010
---------------------------

* General Information

Since the last report, we've had 4 more Maven 3.x Alpha releases and are
close to calling it Beta. There was also a large effort to review and
clean the Jiras. This resulted in many duplicates being closed, and issues
validated against 3.x and closed. We have a total of 500 open Jiras across
all versions, but this is probably half of what we had prior to the
cleanup.

Sonatype has offered to donate the Nexus Indexer code to the Maven
project. You can read more about the indexer here[1]. The PMC has voted to
accept the code and the 3 new committers to maintain it. We are just
beginning the process of preparing the code for IP clearance and subsequent
import.

The development community has started to become more active again as the
3.x releases gain popularity and some parallel efforts to produce parallel
builds have started.

On the repository front, http://repository.apache.org has been upgraded
and Apache branding applied. We have also enabled automatic pgp validation
for all releases being staged on the repo. This checks that the artifacts
are properly signed and the key is publicly available for validation. We
have 32 projects in total using the new repo.

separate cover.

* General Information
   Maven 2.2.1 is a bugfix release aimed at resolving the regressions
that surfaced in the 2.2.0 release. These regressions mainly centered on the
switch from a HttpURLConnection-based wagon to one driven by HttpClient.
Since HttpClient doesn't support NTLMv2, many users experienced proxy
problems where Maven had previously worked fine. Additionally, since neither
HttpClient nor its wrapping Wagon implementation supports a
cached-authentication strategy, the default Wagon setting disabling
preemptive authentication caused corruption of artifact checksums and
network timeouts, as artifacts were each transferred twice (once
unauthenticated, and again after the challenge with accompanying
credentials). Beyond this, Maven 2.2.1 makes two important improvements: the
ability to select a Wagon provider to be used for a particular protocol, and
resolution of some long-standing quirks in the extension-loading mechanisms
that made custom lifecycle mappings very difficult to implement.

   As far as almost 500 ITs and testing on some bigger OSS projects
shows, the trunk of Maven 3.x has reached the desired compatibility with
Maven 2.x. Recent development efforts have been focusing on further
refactoring to provide a better integration with IDEs and build extensions.
Parallel to the development on the new Maven core, a new version of the
Maven Site Plugin is being developed to account for the revised reporting
approach in Maven 3.x.

19 Aug 2009 [Jason van Zyl / Greg]

* General Information

The major news this period revolves around the two active releases of Maven
and updates to conform with Apache release process: Maven 2.2 was released
as a bug fix release building upon Maven 2.1.0. The version was incremented
as there was a decision to use JDK 1.5 functionality in 2.1, but it wasn't
actually implemented. We didn't feel this to be appropriate for 2.1.1 so we
used the next version instead. Maven 2.x+ will be JDK 1.5 from this point
forward.

Work is still ongoing for Maven 3.x but it has been progressing rapidly
lately. Although there are no further alphas at this point, most of the
work has gone into Integration tests and getting the testing automated on
the build grid at http://grid.sonatype.com/ci. Most of the ITs are now
passing with just a few known things left to implement. The 3.0 release of
Maven will mostly be focused on the backwards compatibility with Maven 2.x
after the refactoring. This should provide a good base to improve upon in
future releases.

Work is ongoing to update the Maven and later Apache parent poms to support
proper source bundles for all Maven releases. These bundles will include
the full code required to perform the release and will be signed by the
release manager. This is in addition to the traditional source jars already
produced by Maven for IDE integration. The Assembly Plugin release listed
below was the first step in this process as it introduced some
functionality required to produce the source bundle in a generic way that
will hopefully make it easy for all Maven based Apache projects to get the
proper release criteria out of the box.

   (Tuesday, December 23rd, 2008)

 * The previous report discussed the load on Central. Since
   then, several tools were found to have bugs that caused
   repeated downloads of the index, causing nearly all of the
   load seen. These tools were blocked (and later corrected)
   and the load on Central is back to normal (~10mbps down from
   100mbps). Additionally, the index has been moved to S3 to
   provide faster downloads for index users and improve
   performance for the rest of Central.

Maven Board Report - October 2008
---------------------------

* General Information

 * Maven PMC Call

   This call covered two topics. The discussion topic was the policy
   of the Maven PMC enforcing third party policy, and the second was
   how to manage the central repository.  The full audio of the call
   can be found here:

   https://svn.apache.org/repos/private/pmc/maven/private/calls

   1) The maven.org domain transfer to ASF discussed previously has
      been cancelled due to concerns raised by a number of PMC
      members. A cal was held for the PMC to discuss alternatives,
      and the agreed upon plan going forward is to setup a non-profit
      that will manage the central repository.  The non-profit will
      be established as something that is not Maven specific given
      every build tool centered around Java is using the central
      repository as a resource. I have been put in touch with Evan
      and Rosen in San Francisco (referred by Fenwick & West) who
      specialize in the formation of non-profits and I will be having
      a call with them next week to discuss how we might proceed with
      this.

   2) The gist of our discussion concluded that if an artifact can be
      distributed by the say so of its license then that is really
      the only condition the Maven PMC will adhere to. If the license
      says it can be redistributed then it's fair game to place that
      artifact directly in the central repository. For the incubator
      this now seems moot as the vote put up by Jukka has passed an
      Incubator artifacts can now go directly to central. The policy
      as we have initially drafted it is as follows:

   Maven PMC Artifact Redistribution Policy

   This document outlines the Maven PMC's position on the
   redistribution of artifacts to Maven's Central Repository.
   Maven's Central Repository is a hub through which Maven users can
   access many Open Source artifacts that is intended to be a
   convenience for Maven users as it requires no configuration to use
   with a standard Maven distribution. It is highly desirable for
   projects to get their artifacts into Maven's Central Repository
   because it provides the easiest way for users of Maven to consume
   those artifacts making the process of building software
   easier. Maven may move to a more distributed model of making
   artifacts available to users, but to date the primary distribution
   channel is the Maven Central Repository.

   The Maven PMC will adhere to the redistribution rights set forth
   by the license under which a particular artifact is made available
   and will not enforce any policies set forth by third parties. If
   the license for a particular artifact allows for redistribution,
   then the Maven PMC will not hinder its placement in Maven's
   Central Repository.  The only recommendation that the Maven PMC
   will make is that projects desiring to place their artifacts in
   Maven's Central Repository make a best effort to ensure any
   addition requirements of their project be available in Maven's
   Central Repository.

   The Maven PMC will make a best attempt to verify that artifacts
   being synced or submitted to JIRA are official releases. If the
   releases are official and submitted from a project participant
   then the project's standard group id will be used for placement in
   the central repository.

 * The central repository has been taking a bashing lately and so a
   load balancer is being installed and Contegix has been actively
   banning the IPs of folks who have been abusing their connections
   to the central repository. We are actively trying to setup more
   mirrors around the world and we will likely have 4-5 new mirrors
   setup this month.

 * The general health of the community is good. We are now moving the
   bulk of the work over to a 2.1.x branch and trying to keep the
   2.0.x in maintenance mode while the trunk has been renamed
   3.0.x. The 3.0.x branch is largely a removal of all maven-artifact
   related code with a new project called Mercury and a refactoring
   of all the major components.

 * A new sub-project called Mercury has been promoted and it is a new
   HTTP/HTTPS/DAV transport layer with integrated support for
   artifact repositories. Mercury will be of interest as Maven
   finally has complete, well tested support for PGP. With Mercury it
   will be possible for users to enable signature validation. This
   was easy to do given the architecture of Mercury and supercedes
   all previous efforts.

 * An open-invite in-person Maven Day was held at Intuit in Mountain
   View on October 9th. The beginning of the day was primarily a
   demonstration of m2eclipse, Nexus, and Maven with some time spent
   helping Google get a repository synchronization setup. The
   afternoon was spent talking about Maven architecture and some
   release plans for Maven 3.0.x and the state of NMaven in the
   incubator.

 * Several Maven developers have indicated that they will be present
   at ApacheCon US in November. On the schedule is a Maven training,
   a Maven presentation. Sonatype will be providing free Maven
   training to pilot its new set of courses and will be hosting an
   event the night of November 5th at the Marriot (across the street
   from ApacheCon) to do some demos and provide an additional forum
   (and beer :-)) to discuss Maven development with a focus on the
   3.0.x line and NMaven.

 * Sonatype and O'Reilly have published their book 'Maven: The
   Definitive Guide'.

Maven Board Report - April 2008
---------------------------

* General Information

 * A new release process was trialed with the Maven 2.0.9 release. This
   process focused on quality by introducing Release Candidate builds
   first to the dev team and then to the wider user community. We identified
   many regressions from 2.0.8 to 2.0.9 during this and were able to fix
   them all over 8 RC builds. We feel that this is a positive step forward
   to improving the quality of the core releases. This is significant and
   will be integrated into our standard process for major releases of Maven.
 * Jason has talked with Joe and Justin about transferring the maven.org
   domain over to Apache. Justin just needs to initiate the transfer from
   the Apache side and that should be that.
 * Continuum has completed the process of transferring resources out of
   Maven into the new top level project established in February
 * Archiva has begun the process of transferring resources out of Maven
   into the new top level project established in March

19 Sep 2007 [Jason van Zyl / Henri]

1) New central repository machine

We have a new machine hosted at Contegix for the Maven Central
Repository. It is purely a machine for hosting the central repository
and no other services are running their like blogs, or mailing lists.
Henri Yandell was still going to talk to the folks on the board about
using the maven.org, but again this is not important. The name can
change and no one sees the domain anymore apart from my email address
and the main repository URL. Everything is running well, and the
machine pretty much has 100% uptime.

2) Creation of a repository maintainers mailing list, was moved here
from maven.org

All the lists were moved from the maven.org machine to Apache.

3) Monitoring of the central repository by Gomez using Webperform

Gomez has provided some repository monitoring, and the alters get sent
to the repository-maintainers list but nothing has gone wrong so we
haven't really had to make use of this. But it's up and running and we
will be alerted in the event something happens.

4) New Maven Development Dashboard for Community Visibility

I have tried to put more information about the project in one place as
people generally have no idea what's going on with the project. Folk
can now take a gander at the link below to find out about work in
progress, design, development process, our taxonomy (essentially a set
of categories for Maven), release schedule, recent releases, and
documentation. You can find it all:

http://docs.codehaus.org/display/MAVEN/Home

5) Adding Repository Maintainers

A few people have asked for access to help with the repository and the
first person to hassle me enough to get access is Mauro Talevi. He's
an Apache committer, and will help take care of JIRA requests and is
generally interested in improving the quality of the repository.

6) Allow Project Repository Staging on Maven Central

We are now allowing projects to stage their repositories on central
which means they push to central on their schedule and then we pull on
ours. Hamcrest is the first project that is doing this, and JBoss, and
a few projects at Sun are ready to do the same setup.

7) Moved maven-antlr-plugin to mojo.codehaus.org

8) Discussion about project scope

In the last month, there have been discussions on the private list
about whether the scope of the Maven project is too large. There seems
to be some consensus that at least two subprojects would be better
suited as standalone projects, and may seek to become top level
projects in the future. Both are currently in the middle of releases,
so while there will be no rush, the next step is to take that
discussion public on the individual project lists.

9) Continuum installation and vmbuild

Several Continuum contributors (and some other volunteers) have
recently volunteered to help maintain installations of Continuum as
part of the ASF infrastructure. This has been set up for various ASF
projects that wanted to use Continuum. Currently, there are two
installations maintained by the group: vmbuild1.apache.org and
maven.zones.apache.org.

10) The Apache Forrest Team gives to the Apache Maven Team the
Forrestdoc project [1] [2]. The Maven Team is now the main maintainer
of this project.

[2] http://www.nabble.com/Forrestdoc-and-Maven-JXR-tf3864888s177.html

11) Imported projects
The shade-maven-plugin and archetypeNG code have had ip clearance
filed and have been imported into the sandbox where work continues.

12) Official call for 2.1 Proposals
An official request for 2.1 proposals was made on the dev and user
lists. [add details about what we ultimately do with them here]

http://www.nabble.com/Gathering-proposals-for-2.1-tf4374871s177.html#a12470180
http://www.nabble.com/Call-for-2.1-Proposals-tf4381308s177.html#a12489582

13) Transfer of Maven Clover Plugin to Atlassian
Atlassian has acquired Cenqua, the provider of the clover plugin. They
have thus requested to fork the source over to their systems and
continue to maintain it on an Apache license.

The source in Maven's SVN was moved to /retired for future reference.

http://www.nabble.com/Atlassian-to-bring-Maven-Clover-plugin-development-in-house-tf4345201s177.html

14) Maven Site Linkchecked
Lukas ran a link checker to validate and fix our site.
http://www.nabble.com/maven-site-linkchecked-tf4363612s177.html

15) Maven Artifact
The Maven Artifact code has been removed from the core of 2.1 and made
a new top level Maven project. The new version is 3.0 to indicate the
history. This new code will be shared in common between 2.0.x and 2.1
possibly starting with the 2.0.9 release.

Goings on
---------------------------

There were meetups at both ApacheCon EU and JavaOne. At JavaOne we
primarily did planning for Maven 2.1. At ApacheCon we did ...

There is a reworking of Maven Archetype which is our prototyping
mechanism and is being carried out by Raphael Pieroni.

A new project is being prototyped in the sandbox to create a new
Maven distribution for the Enterprise. Aptly named Maven Enterprise.
The majority of the work done here by Andrew Williams.

Two new projects were donated to our sister Eclipse project at
Codehaus for dealing with OSGi/Eclipse plugin builds. One donated by
AGFA and one by Princeton Softech.

The .net Maven work is still being worked on by Shane Isbell in the
Incubator under the name NMaven.

Reworking of the TestNG support is happening in the Maven sandbox
Jesse Kuhnert and Alex Popescu.

We had user training at ApacheCon. We also had user training and
manager training at JavaOne.

We had presentations at ApacheCon and JavaOne. Brett presented for me
as I was grounded at the airport and wasn't allowed to fly.

Worked has progressed on all the IDE integration. All integration
projects are now using the same strain of code and we now have
mediocre to decent support in Eclipse, Netbeans and IntelliJ. A most
pleasant surprise has been IntelliJ putting one of their employees on
the integration work. Vladislav who is one of their best developers.

We have two SoC students who are working with us. Both graphing
related. I'm mentoring one and Carlos is mentoring the other.

The maven.org proposal has been withdrawn and we are just going to
continue doing what we are doing with Contegix for Maven's central
repository. According to OSU OSL there is no space to house the Maven
repository so it's just easier to continue with what works well for
us. So pretty much the status quo aside from removing the violation
of the trademark pointed out by Jim on the PRC.

17 Jan 2007 [Jason van Zyl / Sander]

The two outstanding proposals to the board have been sent 1) a
proposal to allow the use and existence of "maven" in maven.org and
2) a proposal to officially make Contegix part of the Apache
infrastructure team.

We have been doing a lot in the area of release management lately.
We're pretty close to have all legal requirements, PGP signing, and
release staging worked out for all project using Maven at Apache.
This is actually pretty exciting as it means that all these legal
requirements will be handled safely and transparently for any project
alleviating the extreme annoyance of dealing with this stuff. We know
that it's vitally important that it be done correctly but is really
not much fun to track.

We have also had a number of discussions about the structure of the
community, which led to two proposals that were accepted:
- establish a list of emeritus committers from those that haven't
been active in the last year (though they are all welcome back at any
time and one committer requested they remain active)
- collapse the 13 permissions groups within the project to a single ACL

We had a little spat about commerical interests in the Maven project
itself which started about 5 employees of Mergere being nominated at
once. We are sorting this out internally, but if anyone on the board
wants any clarification on the details please let us know.

Otherwise things are going well in the project and we plan to tell
people about it at ApacheCon!

Justin asked if the board should let PRC and Infrastructure teams handle items #1 and #2 from the Maven report. Jim indicated that they should, and he would follow up.

Approved by General Consent.

15 Nov 2006 [Jason van Zyl / Ken]

Things are going well with the Maven project, but we have noticed that
we are have noticed that it is becoming increasingly difficult to
absorb user submitted patches. As a result we have opened up a part of
the Maven SVN for all Apache committers where they can contribute in a
more effective way. Managing patches has become overwhelming so we are
encouraging people to work in the Maven sandbox where it is easier for
us to integrate contributor works.

Over the last quarter we have moved Maven's central repository from
Ibibilio to a machine hosted by Contegix. As part of this move two
proposals are outstanding for the board and I hope to get to them
before the end of the month so that they can be voted on during the
next board meeting. They are:

- A proposal is still pending for the board on the use of the Maven
 trademark at maven.org
- A proposal is still pending for the inclusion of Contegix as part
 of the official Apache infrastructure

We are currently voting for a logo for the Archiva subproject, which
is of a similar style to the existing logos.

New Projects
----------------------

No new projects have been started or imported, but we have recently
started a discussion about bringing the NMaven project from
SourceForge over to the Maven project. NMaven deals with the specifics
of Maven and .NET.

be out shortly.

Justin noted that we don't have any resolutions yet on the 2 issues the Maven PMC wishes to bring to board attention. It was noted that regarding the trademark issue, the PMC should contact the PRC directly. Jim took the action item to facilitate that.

Things are going well within the Maven project. We have a lot of

 * How to improve repository metadata and we're working toward
getting the Maven Repository Manager online to help with repository
and metadata issues. Often times projects that don't use Maven can
create metadata that is not entirely correct and can have a severly
bad impact on the user base.

 * We had some discussions about creating an abstraction for
dealing with issue management systems like JIRA as well. Mik Kersten
who is the author of the Mylar plugin for Eclipse has joined the
discussion as he's got an existing library for manipulating issue
management systems that would be useful to leverage.

 * How to improve the plugin documentation. We ended up creating
a plugin that checks the consistency of plugin documentation, so we
basically have a lint type system for plugin documentation so we can
ship consistent plugin documentation for releases.

 * Something in the periphery that might be of interest is that
the Phoenix/Loom container which separated from Apache and went to
Codehaus is now merging with Plexus, the container that Maven uses.
Phoenix has some amazing code but sort of fell to the wayside once it
left Apache. So Plexus benefits by getting some great code and
possibly a little bit of time from Phoenix devs, but more importantly
people who have used Phoenix/Loom in the past will now be part of
very active community.

 * A new DOAP plugin for Maven is being developed that would
allow any project using Maven at Apache to easily create DOAP files
for use with projects.apache.org. Try and get the information about
projects dispersed easier.

 Goings on

 * ApacheCon was a good experience for many of the Maven
   developers. We chatted with OSGi folks about how Maven might be
   used utilzed by OSGi developers. We chatted with Jeff McAffer of
   the Eclipse PDE team and discussed how some Maven technologies
   might be integrated into Eclipse in particular their Update
   Manager. We also chatted with some Cocoon developers about
   trying to help them convert their build over to Maven 2.x.

 * Activity in the community has been steadily increasing. We have
   one of the most active mailing lists (if not the most right now:
   would be cool to link in Ken's page here) and we are attempting
   to answer users questions by capturing them in a FAQ document
   which we want to process and turn into static
   documentation. We're experimenting with parsing content right
   now of Confluence i.e. making static sites from a Wiki.

 * We have been working on a new Development Process for the Maven
   project which we hope to flesh out over the next release, create
   some automated tools for, and share with other projects that use
   Maven to try and help with a process of development, documenting
   and releasing.

 * We have been experimenting with some automation tools for issue
   management and documentation creation. We have created a little
   Jira Ruby Gem for automating some aspects of our issue
   management. We're also working on a patch server and submission
   tools which will take patches and documentation from users
   directly from the Maven 2.x CLI and create JIRA issues and stow
   the patch somewhere we can easily process it.

 * We are also working on trying to setup a structure where all our
   Maven plug-ins get some sort of review for the time of the Board
   report because that gives some visilbility to outside observers
   like the Board but it also helps us keep track of plug-in
   status. We don't have a clear way of dealing with this right now
   but we hope to automate something by the next board report.

 mailing lists are going ballistic and we have more involvement from
 volunteers then we've ever had in the history of the project. In
 doing the documentation for the release, for example, five different
 people contributed significant amounts of documentation and we
 simply can't keep up with the number of patches coming in. Our JIRA
 issues for Maven 2.x has pretty much caught up to our issue count
 for Maven 1.x which is well over 1200. We've closed out several
 hundred issues over the last couple months.

 New projects

 Continuum finally landed in Maven's SVN. It was originally slated as
 one of projects which would arrive with Maven itself when TLP was
 found but we only got around to getting it into SVN two months ago.

 RepoClean is our application for cleaning up and converting Maven
 project metadata (POMs) in preparation for the final release of Maven
 2.0. Much of the metadata in m1 is faulty because of our lax
 policies. We are working hard to rectify this.

 Maven Artifact Tasks for Ant have been released and is the start of
 some collaboration between the Maven and Ant projects. Steve has
 started integrating the artifact tasks into Ant and they will be used
 in the 1.7 release of Ant.

Goings on

 Things have been moving rapidy as we are very much trying to release
 the versions of Maven 2.0 and Continuum 1.0 sometime in August. So
 almost all our effort is focused on that. We're starting to get a lot
 of user interest in Maven 2.0 and a lot of it is positive. In fact
 most of it is positive.

 We just noticed JSR 277 and it is a JSR that we would like to be the
 Apache representative for. With our experience in versioning,
 packaging, repositories and metadata we think we think someone from
 the Maven project would be ideal.

Jim volunteered for the Action Item of "hooking" Geir up with the Maven project, regarding their interest in JSR 277.

We finally managed to release the 1.0 of Maven and now we're forging

1.0 was released before doing the alpha-1 of Maven 2. Brett Porter
forged on to complete the release while myself, Michal, Emmanuel, Trygve
and John Casey worked on Maven 2. Maven 2 has the distinct difference of
originally entirely written by myself. So in terms of developer
involvement there is a stark difference between maven 1 and maven 2.
With Maven 1 users are essentially at the mercy of what Brett and I know
about Maven 1 whereas off the hop with Maven 2 we've got 5 people in
maven land in addition to a half dozen other folks who could manage
their way around Maven as it's a plexus application (a container akin to
phoenix and merlin but made specifically for embeddability and Maven 2).

I am also preparing to release Continuum which is a continuous
integration tool for Maven projects. I hired one of the committers, who
is a student, for the summer to finish the first release of Maven and
it's now finished and will be released the alpha-1 of Maven 2.

We are also planning on doing a release soon of Maven Wagon and Maven
SCM. Maven Wagon is used extensively in Maven 2 and Maven SCM is used

o Goings on

The release of the 1.0 rc2 happened and we are in the throws of
releasing an 1.0 rc3. Shortly after this the 1.0 final will be released.

In tandem with the 1.0 release a 2.0 alpha-1 will be released around May
1st which will become what is essentially a fact finding mission. The
maven2 alpha is functional but in the months of planned alpha before the
first beta all the use cases we have set forth will be discussed with
users and surveys will be released for feedback. I am hoping that this
will be an example of something that typically does not occur with open
source projects which is an entirely user driven alpha cycle which will
help to form the first beta of Maven2.

---

We are currently trying to setup the Maven plugins as a separate project
with separate committers in an attempt to open the gates, so to speak,
to more developers who have contributed to plugins but yet do not have
access the the Maven plugins repository. We are also thinking of
creating a little sandbox for plugin development.

---

The book is still chugging along and I have been working with the
Geronimo fellows to try help them get setup with Maven and would like
Geronimo to be one of the first projects to adopt Maven 2 and they seem
to be willing to work together to achieve this. David Blevins, the
author of OpenEJB, is writing the Geronimo book for O'Reilly so we are
working together on the Maven side of things for Geronimo. I expect the
adoption of Maven 2 by Geronimo will provide some impetus for users to
move forward once they see what can be done with a project the size of
Geronimo with Maven 2.

18 Feb 2004 [Jason van Zyl]

o New projects

MBoot:
A few Java classes and some bash functions which can build a Maven
project using a Maven POM without actually using Maven itself. This was
created in order to create a coherent bootstrap process for Maven2, but
it is generally useful but only works where bash is available. Using
MBoot would in fact allow projects like Gump to build Maven projects
without having to build Maven. For projects that don't use any plugins
as part of the build process MBoot works just fine.

Mevenide:
Some arrangements have been made to bring the Mevenide project from SF
under the Maven umbrella. Mevenide is an Eclipse extension that allows
Maven and Eclipse to interoperate. The members of the Mevenide team have
sent in their CLAs and I've drafted the proposal for the incubator.
Passed by the Maven PMC.

Javasrc:
I was approached by Dims about bring the Javasrc project from Jakarta
Alexandria into Maven. The code would be used to replace the current JXR
code for source cross referencing. Passed by the Maven PMC. Dims has
taken care of things on the Jakarta Alexandria end.

o PMC Changes

No new additions to the PMC.

Dion Gillard stepped down from the PMC.

o New Committers

No new committers.

o Goings on

We're just about to release rc2 (probably today actually) and there
aren't really many more changes to make so we're hoping that 1.0 will be
released within the month as well. Once this is done daily builds of
Maven2 will start to hit the streets.

Work on the Maven book for O'Reilly is progressing, there has been some
user feedback and a quick list of articles that will be present in the
book can be found here:

http://wiki.codehaus.org/maven/BookArticles

---

I have submitted a proposal to OSCON

http://conferences.oreillynet.com/os2004/

on Maven for the Java Track so I imagine that will go through so Brett,
Michal, Emmanuel and myself are going to try and hook up there if
possible.

---

Work on Maven2 is progressing, Emmanuel and I have been working out some
kinks in the last week but the new code bootstraps and performs the
basic functions of Maven1. It is entirely component-based and the entire
base distribution rings in at under 500k, is deadly fast and does not
require Ant or Jelly for its basic operations of building, compiling,
testing or packaging.

Now that the basic core of Maven2 functions, the four core folks
involved (myself, Brett, Michal, Emmanuel) are trying to work out the
nitty gritty details before releasing a pre-alpha for public
consumption.

I have also been in contact with Carsten Ziegler, of Cocoon, who is
working on a tool which is akin to Jelly but undoubtedly will work
better. So hopefully that will pan out, the code looks good at any rate:

Plexus and Surefire:

http://cvs.codehaus.org/viewcvs.cgi/surefire/?root=codehaus

the free stuff I have acquired an OSS license for the JIDESoft
components which are used primarily for creating IDE like tools:

21 Jan 2004 [Jason van Zyl]

o New projects

We launched the Wagon sub-project and the SCM sub-project and introduced
a series of components which will be integrated into the Maven 1.x
family and will be the foundation of future versions of Maven.

Wagon:
A general artifact handling library which is an amalgum of code taken
from the first versions of Maven, the Artifact plugin which has been
around for some time and some additions added by Michal Maczka. This
library is usable outside the confines of Maven and is not bound to
Maven. So it can be integrated in IDEs and it would be trivial to create
Ant tasks with the code.

http://cvs.apache.org/viewcvs.cgi/maven-wagon/

SCM:
A general SCM facade for many of the popular SCM packages. Currently
there is support for CVS, SVN, Perforce, Clearcase, Starteam. Again,
this library is not dependent on Maven and not bound to Maven. In fact I
am currently integrating it into a small IDE I'm writing

http://cvs.apache.org/viewcvs.cgi/maven-scm/

Components:
These are basically some common notions of Maven manifest in component
form. In the 1.x things are a static hairball, highly coupled and
resistent to change. The new components are all very small, are very
focused on their concern and all of them are very close if not at 100%
coverage.

o Goings on

I registered an launched mavenblogs as a place where developers and
users of Maven could push their notions, anecdotes and recipes for
Maven:

http://www.mavenblogs.org

We also launched this with some Google Adsense stuff and along with
other adsensed pages on the codehaus box it looks like we will pull in
~500US this month. This pays for the codehaus box and we hope to raise
enough money to buy machines for a build cluster which will run
Continuum in order to provide a real-time, live graph of any OSS java
project that wishes to participate.

---

We are approaching the rc2 release as Brett Porter has been working hard
to integrate code in several branches to get rid of the show stopping
memory leak we had. This has been fixed, we are doing some nips and
tucks and the release will most likely happen before the next board
report.

---

I got a blanket license from IDEA for Maven developers wishing to work
on the Maven IDEA integration which I've started as part of my little
IDE project and a couple of us have been chatting with the Mevenide
folks who are doing the Maven integration for Eclipse.

---

As per usual Sun has been little or no help with getting JARs placed in
the repository. Wow, big surprise. I'm hoping that Geir will pursue this
but I honestly have no hope left that anything will ever come of this. I
just feel like we keep getting glad handed as no one can actually do
anything inside Sun to help even if someone wanted to.

There was discussion regarding mavenblogs and that the site and service itself, in addition to the Adsense "stuff" was not fully "ASF approved." This will be brought to the attention of the PMC and addressed.

22 Oct 2003 [Dion Gillard]

Maven 1.0 RC1 was released 30 September. This was another quiet
release mostly fixing problems with plugins and adding functionality
that allows the automated download and installation of plugins. There
is also a Windows installer available.

Maven plugins are now being released on their own cycle, and many have
moved into the maven-plugins cvs module. This has allowed critical
bugfixes and improvements to get to the users much more quickly.

We are now working on RC2 which will focus on some impressive
performance and memory usage improvements, as well as fixing the
remaining known bugs.  The distributions of maven releases were
consolidated from jakarta, ibiblio and maven.apache.org and are all
now available via the mirrors and www.apache.org/dist/maven. All
releases were pgp signed.

Brett Porter was voted as a new committer.

Our release schedule is available at
http://jira.codehaus.org/secure/BrowseProject.jspa?id=10030&report=roadmap

. Also discussed at this time was Maven's use/non-use of ASF infrastructure. Jim volunteered to work with Infrastructure to obtain a "wish list" of infrastructure requirements from all PMCs (eg: Wiki's, jar repositories, etc..).
