NiFi

19 Jul 2017 [Joe Witt / Rich]

## Description:
 - Apache NiFi is an easy to use, powerful, and reliable system to
   process and distribute data.
 - Apache NiFi MiNiFi is an edge data collection agent built to seamlessly
   integrate with and leverage the command and control of NiFi. There are
   both Java and C++ implementations.
 - Apache NiFi Registry is a centralized registry for key configuration items
   including flow versions, assets, and extensions for Apache NiFi
   and Apache MiNiFi.
 - Apache NiFi Nar Maven Plugin is a release artifact used for supporting
   the NiFi classloader isolation model.

## Issues:
 - There are no issues requiring board attention at this time.

## Activity:
 - Based on board feedback in last report the descriptions above have been
   simplified to avoid confusing child/subproject terminology.  We have
   successfully conducted and completed name searches for the MiNiFi and
   Registry efforts.
 - Conducted numerous releases as listed below.  The 0.7.x releases focused
   on providing simple bug fixes and resolving reported CVEs.  The 1.x
   releases brought about stability, performance improvements, and addressed
   reported CVEs.  Further, in the 1.x releases numerous substantive features
   were introduced including the ability to run multiple versions of the same
   components and support for both format and schema aware record processors
   to easily handle cases like acquisition, SQL based routing, enrichment,
   conversion, and delivery of record oriented data.  These make many common
   record oriented use cases far more performant, intuitive, and retain the
   full power of NiFi's provenance features.

## Health report:
 - Health of the community is strong and indicators of strength continue
   trending in the right direction. Mailing list and JIRA activity is strong.
   ASF Hipchat is serving as an on-ramp for new users to our mailing list and
   JIRA systems. We continue to see new users and contributors. The PMC and
   committer ranks grew again during this reporting cycle and the pipeline
   is encouraging. We're generating many releases with new release managers
   stepping up often. The team handles security reports swiftly and follows
   ASF security team published processes effectively.

20 Jul 2016 [Joe Witt / Bertrand]

## Description:
 - Apache NiFi is an easy to use, powerful, and reliable system to process
 and distribute data.

## Issues:
 - There are no issues requiring board attention at this time.

## Activity:
 - First RC for MiNiFi which is a subproject of Apache NiFi is being
 reviewed and voted upon.  It will be Apache MiNiFi 0.0.1.
 - Second RC for Apache NiFi 0.7.0 is being prepared for a vote.
 The first RC was cancelled due to licensing concerns and a couple blockers
 found by community members during testing.
 - Apache NiFi 1.0.0 is nearing RC stage.  Looks like it could happen in a
 couple of weeks but significant effort remains to pull that release
 together.
 - Numerous meetups and conference presentations featuring Apache NiFi and
 its collaborative role with other Apache technologies have occurred in the
 past few months. Social media commentary and Q&A for NiFi on various
 channels (twitter, stackoverflow) has increased considerably.
 - We have created a new issues mailing list for automated updates from
 Github and JIRA so that we can keep the signal to noise level on the dev
 list higher.

## Health report:
 - Activity on mailing lists, JIRA, Git remains strong.
 - During the last review cycle we have new committers and PMC progression.
 - The pipeline of committers working toward PMC status remains strong and
 the community documented how to progress to PMC https://s.apache.org/Ogm7
 - However, we are not without risk. Supporting both the 0.x and 1.x lines
 is taxing. We've documented the support plan https://s.apache.org/I9Rf but
 as it is early we need to closely review this to ensure it is working.
 - The rate of PR production to PR review and disposition means we have a
 growing trail of PRs.  We need to focus on this in the coming quarter.
 - The rate of JIRA creation to JIRA disposition means we have a growing
 number of JIRAs.  We need to focus on this in the coming quarter.

NiFi is a dataflow system based on the concepts of flow-based programming.

NiFi has been incubating since 2014-11-24.

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

 1. Continue to grow the community and support the new user base
 2. Establish rhythm for releases and improve documentation and procedures
 3. Provide a clear and expedient process for code contribution and review

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?

 - We have a new PPMC member - Aldrin Piri.
 - We completed our second release on March 17 2015.
 - Two talks were given at ApacheCon NA 2015 featuring Apache NiFi
   (incubating)
 - The first Apache NiFi meetup was held in the Baltimore/Washington area.
 - The project has code contributions from more than 25 people.
 - The mailing lists are quite active with developer questions and an
   increasing amount of user focused questions.  The dev list has 118
   registered addresses.  Commits has 30 and our brand new 'users' list
   established in mid April has 20.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 - We have produced our second release within the Apache Incubator.
 - We are in the closing stages of our third release and includes bug
   fixes, new features, and improved documentation with significant
   representation of contribution outside of the PPMC.

   Mentors engaged. Podling seems to be doing well with no issues requiring
   mentor assistance.

NiFi is a dataflow system based on the concepts of flow-based programming.

NiFi has been incubating since 2014-11-24.

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

 1. Grow our community.
 2. Establish rhythm for releases, review processes, and document how to
    most effectively bring on new committers.
 3. Update our release process with items learned from initial release.

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

 Nothing we wish to raise at this time.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 We have a new PPMC member - Jenn Barnabee.

 We continue to receive patches, code ideas, and bug reports from the
 community.  Notable contributions during this reporting period outside the
 PPMC and committer base include a new website design, code which will
 automate much of the documentation production, and refactoring to improve
 code reuse.

 The dev mailing list has grown from 62 to 80 in the last report (commits
 has grown to 29).

How has the project developed since the last report?

 We have successfully produced our first release within the Apache
 Incubator!

Shepherd/Mentor notes:

 Drew Farris (drew):

   Great report. Congratulations on the first release of NiFi at
   Apache. Excellent job honing the release process and keeping
   up the momentum with the Release Candidates.

 P. Taylor Goetz (ptgoetz):

   The podling looks healthy, with active participation from 6
   out of 7 mentors. Mentors were particularly helpful in
   guiding the community through a first release.

NiFi is a dataflow system based on the concepts of flow-based programming.

NiFi has been incubating since 2014-11-24.

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

 1. Produce an initial release.
 2. Grow our community beyond the initial set of committers.
 3. Establish rhythm for releases, review processes, and document how to
    most effectively bring on new committers.

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

 Nothing we wish to raise at this time.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 The dev mailing list has picked up 20 new e-mails since the last report
 and is now at 62 (commits has grown to 25).

 At the suggestion of the community we've adopted a review-then-commit
 strategy which is designed to among other things help with community
 development.

 We've received several patches from members outside the initial committer
 list including changes which dramatically improved our build process and
 provide new extensions.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 All of our current infrastructure needs are setup and things are working
 really well.  Our focus now is on working towards our first release which
 is 0.0.1 and presently comprised of 85 JIRA issues the vast majority of
 which are resolved.  We've conducted a thorough review of all source files
 to ensure proper license headers/notices/disclaimers are present.  We've
 completed a thorough review and modification of the overall LICENSE and
 NOTICE files in preparation for release.  We've conducted the initial
 podling name search and submitted the ticket for that analysis to be
 verified and confirmed.

Date of last release:

 N/A

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

 We have not grown the official committer list beyond the initial committer
 list.  Though there are a couple of folks who are committing fairly
 consistently now and a new member to join the dev mailing list that is
 very promising.

Shepherd notes (Tim Chen):

Project is still setting up and in the early phase. Mailing list and commits
are fairly active.

NiFi is a dataflow system based on the concepts of flow-based programming.

NiFi has been incubating since 2014-11-24.

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

 1. Establishment of Apache Infrastructure.  Git establishment is
    outstanding with INFRA-8707
 2. Produce an initial release.
 3. Grow the community beyond those involved in the incubator proposal.

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

 None at this time.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 Since podling initiation our dev mailing list has 42 subscribers and the
 commits mailing list has 19.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 Since podling initiation the team has mailing lists, website, and Jira
 setup.  Awaiting INFRA action for Git.  We should then be able to better
 communicate and grow.  We fully understand though that Infra has been
 very busy addressing the SVN server issues.

Date of last release:

 N/A

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

 Entered incubation 2014-11-24.  There have been comments/messages/
 subscriptions on the mailing lists from folks not on the initial
 contributors list.  We believe there is a good opportunity to bring on
 more folks from a more diverse base fairly quickly.
