OGNL

17 Aug 2011

Apache OGNL is a Java development framework for Object-Graph
Navigation Language, plus other extras such as list projection and
selection and lambda expressions.

The project joined the Incubator on April 26, 2011.

There are no other important issues open before a possible graduation.
Actually the project is discussing its graduation into Apache Commons.

* Any issues that the Incubator PMC or ASF Board might wish/need to be
aware of

- due to OpenSymphony dismissing, we need importing old issues to ASF
jira. We finally contacted someone from OpenSymphony and obtained the huge
Issue dump/XML backup, there is someone that is working on it, but due to
security policy (the dump contains also users and password hashes), before
importing it, an open-heart surgery is needed.
- The software grant has been received

* How has the community developed since the last report

- Community activity decreased since codebase has been imported and
polished.
- Luc Blanchard has joined the committers lists (one of original authors
of OGNL)

* How has the project developed since the last report.

- Codebase has been imported & polished, we are in the middle of a big
refactoring stripping off generated code by JavaCC that was versioned in the
SCM and modified.

**** DID NOT REPORT

15 Jun 2011

Apache OGNL is a Java development framework for Object-Graph
Navigation Language, plus other extras such as list projection and
selection and lambda expressions.

The project just joined the Incubator on April 26, 2011.

* A list of the three most important issues to address in the move
towards graduation.

- make at least a big release that shows to Commons PMC the
compliancy level of OGNL to Commons policies;
- attract more users, at the moment only Apache Struts people are
interested because they heavily use OGNL;
- attract more new committers, the only external contribution we got
was about the new OGNL logo.

* Any issues that the Incubator PMC or ASF Board might wish/need to be
aware of

- no news about Marc Andrew Davidson's even if was requested twice;
- not every PPMC member joined the private ML yet;
- due to OpenSymphony dismissing, we need importing old issues to ASF jira.
We've been trying to contact someone from OpenSymphony to obtain an OGNL
Issue dump/XML backup

* How has the community developed since the last report

Community is healthy and people participate to discussions, getting a
lot of suggestions from Commons PMCs, few members are very active, no
new committers yet

* How has the project developed since the last report.

Codebase has been imported and committers started updating it
according to Apache Commons policies. Site is online and we got a new
logo.

We also have Jenkins and Sonar jobs.
