Formal board meeting minutes from 2010 through present. Please Note: The board typically approves minutes from one meeting during the next board meeting, so minutes will be published roughly one month later than the scheduled date. Other corporate records are published, as is an alternate categorized view of all board meeting minutes.

NetBeans

18 Jan 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. 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?

 Our first vote for the new logo, still ongoing.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 The 1st (out of 12) repository has been cleared by Oracle legal / technical
 review for donation.

 Dependencies optionally downloaded from Maven Central instead of the
 project's own public dependencies server.

 Converted Git repositories pushed to GitHub by a community contributor.
 These are not canonical since we are waiting for the Code Grant to be
 signed.

 First community member pull request on the GitHub repository.

 Ticket created for a new website.

Date of last release:

 No releases yet.

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

 No one has been elected so far.

 CCLA and SGA still in the process of being approved and signed by
 Oracle, which will also apply the copyright headers as instructed on
 the dev mailing list.

 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.

 None.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 Mailing lists and Wiki set up.

 Discussions about voting, the CCLA/SGA, are taking place in the private
 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:
 https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/NETBEANS/Apache+Transition

 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.

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

 No one has been elected so far.
