ORC

19 Jul 2017 [Owen O'Malley / Bertrand]

## Description:
 - A high-performance columnar file format for Hadoop workloads.

## Issues:
 - There are no issues requiring the board's attention.

## Activity:
 - A presentation on "ORC File - Optimizing Your Big Data" was given
   at the Dataworks Summit in San Jose.
 - Alibaba is contributing a C++ ORC file writer, which is a very
   welcome contribution.

## Health report:
 - Unfortunately, the C++ code reviews have been going slower than we
   would like.  The combination of summer vacations, the small pool of
   ORC committers that feel comfortable reviewing the C++ code, and
   the influx of C++ from Alibaba have lead to longer review
   cycles. Clearly we need more committers on the C++ side of the
   house.

18 Jan 2017 [Owen O'Malley / Jim]

## Description:
 A high-performance columnar file format for Hadoop workloads.

## Issues:
 - There are no issues requiring the board's attention.

## Activity:
 - There was considerable concern among the Hive committers about
   losing their ability to make changes to the ORC code base as we
   finish replacing the copy of ORC's code base in Hive with a
   reference to the ORC project's release artifacts. The ORC PMC voted
   to allow the current Hive committers to become ORC
   committers. Twenty of the Hive committers accepted the offer and
   have been added. I feel this is good for the project, but it may
   induce some short term turmoil with the large influx of new
   committers.
 - On a separate note, the ORC PMC also added Gopal Vijayaraghavan as
   a PMC member. Gopal has done a lot of great work on ORC's
   performance and is a great addition to the PMC.
 - We made two bug fix releases on the 1.2 line and will likely
   make a 1.3 release in the next quarter.

## Health report:
 - We need to finish Hive's migration from its own ORC code base to
   use our release artifacts. Having two copies of the code in
   different projects is very hard to mantain.
 - We are seeing some new contributors, which is great.

## PMC changes:

 - Currently 7 PMC members.
 - Gopal Vijayaraghavan was added to PMC on Jan 08 2017

## Description:
 A high-performance columnar file format for Hadoop workloads.

## Activity:
 - The Java code in Hive was finally separated into a stand alone module
   and copied over to the ORC project.

   synchronized with the Hive code base.
 - The HIVE-14007 jira for removing the hive-orc module from Hive is
   currently being reviewed.

## Health report:
 - We continue efforts to increase the size and diversity of the
   contributor base by encouraging people to contribute to the project.

20 Apr 2016 [Owen O'Malley / Greg]

## Description:
 A high-performance columnar file format for Hadoop workloads.

## Issues:
 - There are no issues requiring the board's attention.

## Activity:
 - After the last board report, it was suggested that we go ahead and make
   a release of the C++ code without waiting for the Java to be separated
   out of Hive. We went ahead and did that and released 1.0.0.
 - We're about to create a first pull request for ORC-1, which is the import
   of the Java code from Hive. We plan to make a 1.1 release soon after the
   code is pulled in to ORC.

## Health report:
 - The project has been relatively quiet. Getting the Java reader and writer
   released will enable projects such as Spark to import a much smaller set
   of dependencies when they use ORC.

## PMC changes:

 - Currently 6 PMC members.
 - No new PMC members added in the last 3 months
 - Last PMC addition was Aliaksei Sandryhaila on Wed Nov 18 2015

## Releases:

 - 1.0.0 was released on Mon Jan 25 2016

## Mailing list activity:

20 Jan 2016 [Owen O'Malley / Sam]

## Description:
   A high-performance columnar file format for Hadoop workloads.

## Issues:
 - We really need a release, which is blocked by wanting to get the Java
   reader and writer moved out of Hive.

## Activity:
 - Progress continues on moving the Java reader and writer out of Hive. We've
   created the ORC module in Hive and moved the API, utilities and writer into
   it. We are currently cleaning up some of the ORC APIs before Hive 2.0.0
   gets released. The final bits to move over to the ORC module will be the
   reader. Once the reader is moved over, the entire module can be moved to
   the ORC project.

## Health report:
 - The activity level is relatively low. The C++ reader works and is stable.
   There continues to be user interest in reading and writing ORC files
   outside of Hive.

## PMC changes:

 - Currently 6 PMC members.
 - Aliaksei Sandryhaila was added to the PMC on Wed Nov 18 2015

## Committer base changes:

21 Oct 2015 [Owen O'Malley / Greg]

## Description:
   A high-performance columnar file format for Hadoop workloads.

## Issues:
 - Progress in separating out the Java ORC reader & writer from Hive has gone
   slowly. The progress on HIVE-10171 is currently 19 of 24 sub-taskes done.
   Part of the problem has been a lot of conflicting activity in the ORC code
   base from the development of LLAP. The LLAP branch has merged, which should
   slow down the churn on the code base.
 - The project needs to make a release soon to start developing the community.
   The release is blocked by getting the Java code out of Hive.

## Activity:
 - The Java ORC reader & writer, which are still in Hive, had 142 commits
   in the last 3 months.
 - The C++ ORC reader has only had 2 commits.

## Health report:
 - The activity is low. There are users asking for the Java release, which we
   are working on.

## PMC changes:

 - Currently 5 PMC members.
 - No new PMC members added in the last 3 months
 - Last PMC addition was Prasanth Jayachandran at Tue Apr 21 2015

## Description:
   A high-performance columnar file format for Hadoop workloads.

## Activity:
 - The project is continuing work on refactoring the Hive and Orc Java
   code base inside the Hive project to minimize the time that the
   code is forked before it can be replaced with a reference to the
   new project. The work can be tracked in HIVE-10171.
 - The C++ implementation has been moved over from github.

## PMC/Committership changes:

 - Currently 12 committers and 5 PMC members in the project.
 - The PMC was created on 22 April 2015 and no members have been added since.
