15 May 2019 [Geertjan Wielenga / Daniel]

Apache NetBeans is a development environment, tooling platform, and
application framework.

The project entered the incubator in October 2016 and in April 2019 graduated
to become a top level Apache project. Three releases have been completed in
the incubator, the most recent release having been at the end of March 2019,
and the first release outside the incubator is aimed to be released in June
2019. The current aim is to attempt to release 4 times per year, as time-based
rather than feature-based releases.

The Apache top level infrastructure has been set up with thanks to the Apache
Infra team: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-18261

The last committers and PMC members have been voted in during April 2019,
Vikas Prabhakar and Sarvesh Kesharwani. In the incubator, everyone voted on
was automatically both a committer and committee member; now that we're a top
level project we are going to separate those two, as guided by our mentors, so
that we'll first vote on committers and then in time evaluate whether they are
suitable as PMC members.

Currently, 691 are signed up to the user mailing list, and 452 to the
developer mailing list, both of which is a slight increase over the numbers in
the last incubator report of April 2019.

A main task coming up is the rerouting of netbeans.org to netbeans.apache.org,
a first attempt was made, there were several unexpected side effects, and we
rolled back, hoping to try again soon. Another task in progress is the
completion of the donation of NetBeans from Oracle to Apache, which will still
take some time: though the main features have been donated, several ancillary
features, in particular support for C/C++ development, is still in progress,
being audited, scrubbed, etc. A rough estimate is that it should take at least
another year before all the source code of NetBeans at Oracle is donated to
Apache.

Humbedooh: Seeing good progress in the podling moving towards graduation.
There are still issues to address, and ways to teach, but the project
community seem very willing to learn and adapt.

NetBeans is a development environment, tooling platform and application
framework.

NetBeans has been incubating since 2016-10-01.

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

 1. DNS handover, e.g., for netbeans.org and planetnetbeans.org, needs to
 be finalized on the Apache side, Oracle having handed everything related
 to domains over now.
 2. 3rd donation, focused on tutorials and images, and related ancillary
 items.
 3. 4th donation, focused on C/C++ features.

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?

 - Three virtual meetups have taken place to connect community members and
 discuss activities, all recorded and published on
 blogs.apache.org/netbeans.
 Around 20 in attendance at these, at the last one there were reps from
 Oracle, Apache infra, and Apache NetBeans, discussing the way forward
 with the domain handovers.
 - Currently 622 (588 in last report) on Apache NetBeans users mailing
 list and 438 (422 in last report) on Apache NetBeans dev mailing list.
 - Ken Fogel to represent Apache NetBeans at ACNA 2018:
 https://apachecon.dukecon.org/acna/2018/#/scheduledEvent/7e6b57d36ccd834f2
 - Several community members to be present and present at Oracle Code One
 2018:

+Roadmap
 - Current focus is on Apache NetBeans 10:
 https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/NETBEANS/Apache+NetBeans+10
 - Successfully completed cleaning up the root directory of GitHub repo:
 [[https://github.com/apache/incubator-netbeans (done together as a
 community, see
https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/NETBEANS/Per-cluster+repository+
layout).
 - The legal title to the trademarks has passed in full to Apache, by the
 signing of the Trademark and Domain Assignment agreement.
 - i.e., brand and domain handover have been completed on the Oracle and
 Apache sides, aside from the DNS reassignment, see above.
 - Removed single point of failure of non-Apache released binaries from
 Oracle to Oregon State University Open Source Lab:

NetBeans is a development environment, tooling platform and application
framework.

NetBeans has been incubating since 2016-10-01.

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

 1. Donating remaining NetBeans code from Oracle to Apache. 2. Moving
 netbeans.org to Apache. 3. Voting in new committers.

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?

 - Voting process for new committers has been documented for the first time,
   with mentors:
   https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/NETBEANS/Becoming+a+committer
 - The start has been made in voting on new committers, though because the
   process wasn't clear, we stopped and put together the document above
   before continuing.
 - All NetBeans.org mailing lists have been contacted and everyone has been
   encouraged to move to Apache NetBeans mailing lists.
 - NetBeans.org mailing lists scheduled to be deleted (they're backed up on
   MarkMail) in the first week of 2018.
 - A new Apache NetBeans announce mailing list has been created for those who
   want high level occasional announcements only, not day to day NetBeans
   e-mails.
 - GitHub commits and notifications are now sent to new dedicated mailing
   lists to reduce the noise in the Apache NetBeans dev mailing list.
 - Standard footers have been added to mails with info about how to
   unsubscribe and where to get all the mailing list info
   (https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/NETBEANS/Mailing+lists).
 - Currently over 550 on Apache NetBeans users mailing list and over 350 on
   Apache NetBeans dev mailing lists
 - Continual activity on mailing lists, new pull requests coming in and being
   integrated, i.e., continually active community.
 - Status report done live with several Apache NetBeans community members,
   plus one Apache NetBeans mentor, at Devoxx Belgium December 2017:
   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EkfX-W0tgNo

How has the project developed since the last report?

 - Audit of 2nd code donation from Oracle is complete and is being processed
   for donation, see end of this page:
   https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/NETBEANS/Apache+Transition
 - Alpha of Apache NetBeans (incubating) has been released:
http    s://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/NETBEANS/Apache+NetBeans+9.0+Alpha
 - Beta of Apache NetBeans (incubating) is nearing completion and ready for
   vote threads:
htt    ps://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/NETBEANS/Apache+NetBeans+9.0+Beta
 - A special aspect of Apache NetBeans (incubating) 9.0 Beta is the ability
   for the user to need to specify whether they want to use the GPL-ed
   nb-javac (which is an Apache requirement, i.e., the user needs to take the
   onus of using binaries that are not compliant with Apache licensing
   requirements) or javac directly from JDK 9 (which thus complies with
   Apache licenses, though has less solid integration with NetBeans):
https:    //cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/NETBEANS/Java+Editor+Using+JDK+javac
   - see also https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-279
 - Plan was to work on Beta release during last week of the year, but holiday
   season got in the way.
 - Repo created for cleaning up netbeans.org website, with content and
   instructions included:
   https://github.com/apache/incubator-netbeans-website-cleanup
 - New Apache NetBeans wiki-export tool has been added to
   apache-netbeans-incubator-tools:
   https://github.com/apache/incubator-netbeans-tools

NetBeans is a development environment, tooling platform and application
framework.

NetBeans has been incubating since 2016-10-01.

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

 1. Legal process to hand over code. Still pending and frustrating to all concerned.
 2. Possibility that NetBeans 1st donation will not be done in time to release together with JDK 9.
 3. Slowness/thoroughness of the process of handing over code from Oracle.

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

The process will take time.
