NetBeans

16 Aug 2017

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.

How has the community developed since the last report?

Various discussions about specific plugins, etc, and about the logo and website.

How has the project developed since the last report?

Progress is being made on the Oracle side, the progress is continual, but slow.

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

    Comments: Latest news is that Oracle is now at the final stage,
              reviewing the AL2.0 and CCLA itself, needed for the 1st code donation.
              So hopefully we finally can import and validate the 1st donation soon.

framework.

NetBeans has been incubating since 2016-10-01.

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

 1. Licensing, i.e., identifying and solving GPL-related code.
 2. Coming up with a process of contributing code that makes sense to
    everyone.
 3. Working on roadmaps, features, and plans together as a community.

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?

 - Several new entries added to Who's Who page:
   https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/NETBEANS/Who%27s+Who
 - Ongoing discussions on the Apache NetBeans mailing list.
 - Several updates to http://incubator.apache.org/projects/netbeans.html
   have been done.
 - Meetups planned in April: Athens, Bangalore, London

How has the project developed since the last report?

 - All repos relating to Java SE NetBeans IDE have been audited on Oracle's
   side (https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/NETBEANS/Apache+Transition).
 - Only the code that has been written since the audit started needs to be
   reviewed, of the Java SE NetBeans IDE.
 - Regular updates on process to Apache NetBeans mailing list.

How would you assess the podling's maturity?

 No releases yet, though active discussions and community enthusiasm.

 CCLA and SGA still in the process of being approved and signed by

 Started initial code cleanup analysis
 https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/NETBEANS/Overview%3A+NetBeans+Structure

 Oracle has already agreed to relicense the Graal.js parser under the
 Apache license.  Resolved in LEGAL-279 the nb-javac dependency
 license.

 Almost finished new static website for Apache NetBeans.

 Experimented Mercurial to Git repository migration with a focus on
 repository size. Solution found, size not an issue anymore.

 mailing list, all other discussions in dev mailing list.

 We want as many discussions as possible in dev mailing list, i.e., as
 public as possible.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 Apache NetBeans Proposal has been published and accepted into incubation.

 Apache Transition plan, listing everything needing to be done, including
 proposed milestones, is being worked on:

 CCLA and SGA have been provided in draft form by Oracle and have been
 approved by ASF. Currently they're in the process of being approved and
 signed by Oracle.

 Once that's done, experiments with migrating hg.netbeans.org/releases to
 Apache Git can proceed.

Date of last release:

 No releases yet.
