Olingo

20 Sep 2017 [Christian Amend / Rich]

Report was filed, but display is awaiting the approval of the Board minutes.

21 Jun 2017 [Christian Amend / Shane]

## Description:
Apache Olingo is a Java and JavaScript library that implements the Open
Data Protocol (OData). Apache Olingo serves client and server aspects of
OData. It currently supports OData 2.0 and OData 4.0. The latter is
the OASIS version of the protocol: OASIS Open Data Protocol (OData) TC.

## Olingo Status
Olingo has no issues that would require board attention.
Since the last report no new releases were done. As of last week we got few
request regarding new releases in the 4.x code line and the 2.x code line.
As of now no release candidate has been produced but we are working on that.
The project should pick up a more steady release schedule again once the 4.01
specification is released. This specification is currently in public review at
Oasis.

Last report I said that there are individuals that contribute a lot to Olingo.
I am pleased to say that that this resulted in invites to become Olingo
committers for Archana Rai and Ramya Vasanth. Both accepted and have been
contributing since then.

## Description:
Apache Olingo is a Java and JavaScript library that implements the Open
Data Protocol (OData). Apache Olingo serves client and server aspects of
OData. It currently supports OData 2.0 and OData 4.0. The latter is
the OASIS version of the protocol: OASIS Open Data Protocol (OData) TC.

## Olingo Status
Currently Olingo has no issues that would require board attention.
As stated within the last board report a release for the 4.4.0 code line
was scheduled for the end of December. Since there have been no major
feature updates the release was not produced.
This is mainly due to the library being mostly feature complete and the
fact that the new OData 4.01 specification is not yet released. Once the
new specification is out there should be an increase in commits again.

The V2 code line had a 2.0.8 patch release in January. There the work is
in an ongoing maintenance mode. No new features have been introduced. The
changes where mostly bug fixes or convenience methods.

We have seen more JIRA issues with patches lately that follow the guidelines
the PMC specified on the hompage. Those patch contributors could be potential
new committers. I will include an update on this in the next board report.

Overall the Olingo project can still be considered healthy. The number of
users on the mailing list is steadily growing and questions get answered
by other community members.

Questions/Remarks from last report:
  mt: It has been a while since the last new PMC member or committer
      was added. Does the PMC have any thoughts on growing the
      community?
New contributers, committers or PMC members are always welcome. Yet they
should also show a certain knowledge of the specification before they
are given commit rights. I personally could not point out someone like
this for now. Once a person like this appears the PMC will certainly
invite him. In the last board report I gave my personal opinion on
why I think that we see such few people.

idf: Thanks for addressing the previous board report comments.
rb: Thanks so much for explicitly responding to questions from your
      last report. This is hugely appreciated.
Thanks from my side as well. This feedback mechanism is very valuable
for me to see what kind of information the board needs.

21 Dec 2016 [Christian Amend / Jim]

## Description:
Apache Olingo is a Java and JavaScript library that implements the Open
Data Protocol (OData). Apache Olingo serves client and server aspects of
OData. It currently supports OData 2.0 and OData 4.0. The latter is
the OASIS version of the protocol: OASIS Open Data Protocol (OData) TC.

## Olingo Status
Currently Olingo has no issues that would require board attention.
The 4.3.0 release was provided to the community on September 19th, 2016. The
next release is scheduled at the end of December. Considering that there are no
major new features which were developed with the new version a release is
unlikely.

There have been bug fixes in the Olingo V2 code line. But since no community
member asked for a new patch release we have not yet provided one.

Traffic on the mailing list and our JIRA has gone down compared to the last
report. Same goes for the number of contributions. This does not worry me as the
V2 and V4 core libraries are nearly feature complete. Once the new OData 4.01
specification is published at Oasis these numbers should grow again. All in all
I still think Olingo is a healthy Apache project. We don`t have as much traffic
as other projects but it is mostly constant.

In the last report I mentioned a large contribution from an individual to the
Olingo V4 code line. It was a JPA extension to the Olingo core libraries.
After discussing this contribution on the mailing list it was decided that it
will not be accepted. Main reason was the fact that some PMC members thought
that the new extension could not be handled with the current Olingo community
members. They felt that even if we gave the contributor committing rights the
main burden would be on this one committer. If he left the community there would
be no other that would take over. As a compromise the contributor was encouraged
to create a GitHub repository for the extension first. Once the code has reached
a certain maturity and attracted a larger number of committers they could
come back and contribute to Olingo again.
Initial discussion:

Questions from last report:
idf: Do you have any guess as to why those people filing a JIRA
     issue tend to not come back?
OData as such is not a hype and does not have as much users as other open source
projects. So my personal guess is that once their specific issue has been
addressed they are satisfied. Thus they don`t have to contribute further and
leave. Most of the users that open multiple JIRA issues don`t attach patches.
Of course pointing the community towards issues with their code is also an
important part in a community. But it does not help speeding up the fixing
process.
Another reason is the complexity of the protocol. Many don`t want to dive into
protocol specifics but rather only use it with as much abstraction as possible
to not worry about the details. When providing a fix one must make sure to be
specification compliant which can make even simple fixes challenging.

## Description:

Apache Olingo is a Java and JavaScript library that implements the Open
Data Protocol (OData). Apache Olingo serves client and server aspects of
OData. It currently supports OData 2.0 and OData 4.0. The latter is
the OASIS version of the protocol: OASIS Open Data Protocol (OData) TC.

## Olingo Status

Currently Olingo has no issues that would require board attention.  The Olingo
PMC decided to postpone the planned V4 release to a later date. This was done
due to the large amount of effort it takes to implement the remaining OData V4
features. The 4.3.0 release is planned for this week instead of the end of
June.

In the V2 code line we provided a 2.0.7 patch release as planned. There are no
new features planned here.

Traffic on the mailing list and our JIRA has been constant compared to the
last report and the number of contributions stayed the same. They mostly
consist of small bug fixes for specific issues.

There has been a large contribution which has not yet been looked at. It
consists of a JPA OData producer. I expect this will be picked up and
discussed on the dev mailing list after the 4.3.0 release.

Questions from last report:

mh: Are any of the new contributors filing JIRAs prospective committers?

There are no constant contributions from one individual. Also most patches do
not include at least one test as we specified in our "contribute" tutorial on
the Olingo website. We will continue to monitor the situation and if some
contributors appear more than once we will certainly invite them if they are
interested.

## Description:
Apache Olingo is a Java and JavaScript library that implements the Open
Data Protocol (OData). Apache Olingo serves client and server aspects of
OData. It currently supports OData 2.0 and OData 4.0. The latter is
the OASIS version of the protocol: OASIS Open Data Protocol (OData) TC.

## Olingo Status

Currently Olingo has no issues that would require board attention.
The Olingo project released the latest 4.2.0 version in march as planned.
The next release is planned for the end of June.
There is also a vote open on a new patch release for the OData V2 code line.

The focus is still on OData V4. Most OData features have been implemented.
The remaining features are of a larger scope and thus take longer to implement.
This lead to fewer but bigger commits by the PMC members.
Overall we see fewer requests on the users mailing list. Interestingly we see
more JIRA tickets with patches from users. Mostly for the V2 code line.
So overall I would describe the health of the Olingo community as stable
compared to the last report.

The last report also mentioned a GitHub repository which was intended as a first
easy starting point for a JPA extensions. There have been no commits or any
further requests either on the user mailing list or the dev mailing list. I
would consider this a failed experiment. If a JPA extension for the V4 code line
is implemented it will most likely happen within the Apache repository. Although
some users have asked for such an extension in the past there haven´t been any
contributions which would speed up development.

## Description:
   Apache Olingo is a Java and JavaScript library that implements the Open
   Data Protocol (OData). Apache Olingo serves client and server aspects of
   OData. It currently supports OData 2.0 and OData 4.0. The latter is
   the OASIS version of the protocol: OASIS Open Data Protocol (OData) TC.

## Olingo Status

Currently Olingo has no issues that would require board attention.
Based on the new release process the community provided the first minor release
with version 4.1.0 on December 21st, 2016. The next minor V4 release is
scheduled to be released at the end of march.
Additionally we provided a new patch release for the OData V2 code line on
January 29th, 2016.

Most of the work in the Olingo community is done in the OData V4 code line. We
saw an increasing number of JIRA issues form users of the library that also
contribute bug fixes in the form of patches. The number of questions on the
user mailing list seems to be constant with a mix of new and already known
users.  All in all the project is healthy but would certainly benefit from
more regular contributors.

An initiative towards an easier API on the basis of JPA annotations was
discussed by users on the users mailing list but did not lead to any
contributions. As an experiment a repository was created at GitHub for easier
access from non Apache committers. The idea was to give the users a repository
they can work in without having to go through Apache processes in the beginning.

The eventual goal would  have been to integrate the GitHub code into the Olingo
project once a certain maturity has been achieved. If there are any updates in
this direction I will include them within the next board report.

## Description:
Apache Olingo is a Java and JavaScript library that implements the Open
Data Protocol (OData). Apache Olingo serves client and server aspects of
OData. It currently supports OData 2.0 and OData 4.0 (beta). The latter is
the OASIS version of the protocol: OASIS Open Data Protocol (OData) TC.

## Olingo Status

Currently Olingo has no issues that would require board attention.
The community is still working on the Java implementation for the OData V4
standard. In addition the Olingo PMC voted for a new internal release process
for the OData V4 codeline. Future releases will happen in a 3 month cycle. This
should ensure that the releases are provided to users in a more timely manner.
The PMC has decided this based on User and PMC feedback which expressed concerns
about the long and unclear phases between new V4 releases. The next release is
planned at the end of December.

The V2 codeline is in a "maintenance mode". No new features have been developed
here in the past 3 months. All changes done have been bug fixes. Since this is
the case the Olingo PMC will not apply the new 3 month rule to this codeline.
Instead releases here are done if users specifically ask for them or if the
Olingo PMC finds that the current number of fixes is worth a new micro release.

With Ramesh Reddy the Olingo PMC has a new member that has been actively
contributing to the project for some time now. We are very happy with this
addition. Aside from that we receive very little contributions from outside the
PMC circle. Since traffic on the user mailing list is constant and also
includes new users we do not worry at this point but we find it hard to
attract new contributors.

After seeing the conversations about the board report quality on the board
mailing list it would be nice if we could receive feedback if the current
report format. I see the reporter tool as a very helpful addition to keep
track of statistics. This in addition to the above overview hopefully gives a
very good insight to the Olingo project.

## Description:
   Apache Olingo is a Java and JavaScript library that implements the Open
   Data Protocol (OData). Apache Olingo serves client and server aspects of
   OData. It currently supports OData 2.0 and OData 4.0 (beta). The latter is
   the OASIS version of the protocol: OASIS Open Data Protocol (OData) TC.


## Activity:
   The project is ongoing. With the OData V2 implementation we see more adoption
   and thus get more JIRA issues and mails on our user list. The dev list is
   currently used for OData V4 related discussion. The most recent discussion
   is about the release candidate for the first stable OData V4 implementation
   for Java servers and clients.

## Health report:
   The number of mails and issues in our JIRA is either constant or slowly
   growing. We expect a rise in interest after the first stable V4 release. All
   in all we are happy with the state of the project although we would always
   like more committers.

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

17 Dec 2014 [Christian Amend / Rich]

Apache Olingo is an effort to provide an implementation of the OASIS
OData (Open Data) specification in Java, and JavaScript (and possibly
other languages). The project has graduated in April 2014.

Releases:
The latest OData V2 compliant Java release is version 2.0.1 and was built on
2014-11-06.
The latest OData V4 compliant Java release is version 4.0.0-beta-01 and was
built on 2014-09-23.
The latest OData V4 JavaScript release is version 4.0.0-beta-01 and was built
on 2014-09-19.

Overall Activity:
The main focus of the Olingo community right now is the OASIS OData 4.0
standard. There have been beta releases for Java and JavaScript.
The maintenance for the OData V2 standard is still ongoing and resulted in a
first patch release.
The mailing lists and Jira show a strong increase in traffic after the first
beta releases for OData V4. We hope this increase in interest will help the
Olingo community to grow.

Community:
Stephan Klevenz resigned as the VP of Olingo and the Olingo community elected
Christian Amend as the new VP on 2014-10-06.
The Olingo community elected Sven Kobler-Morris as a new PMC member on 2014-10-06.
The Olingo community elected Ramesh Reddy as a new committer on 2014-11-07.

Apache Olingo provides libraries which enable developers to implement
OData producers and OData consumers. While starting with an initial
code base implementing OData version 2.0 it is also a clear goal to
start implementing a library for OData 4.0 once the OData standard is
published at OASIS. The focus within the community is currently on the
Java technology but it is up to the community to discuss if other
environments find interest.

Olingo has been incubating since 2013-07-08.

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

 1. Grow community
 2. n/a
 3. n/a

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

 - n/a

How has the community developed since the last report?

 - Committers actively worked together to make the first release. Effort
   was coordinated by Jira and mailing list.
 - Committers actively working on making the second release. Effort is
   coordinated by Jira and mailing list.
 - Committers are in mailing list contact with mentors and infrastructure
   to extend infrastructure setup (e.g. Wiki).
 - Community has grown: Additional committers, new contributors (can be
   seen via Jira Issues, Mailing List), but the community is still
   homogeneous which needs to change for graduation

How has the project developed since the last report?

 - There is currently no feature development for OData 2.0 (stabilization
   phase for making the second release)
 - Documentation on web site is refactored and growing
 - There is feature development for OData 4.0 in a new repository. This new
   development will not be part of the second release

Date of last release:

 2013-10-16

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

 2013-12-05

Shepherd notes:

 Raphael Bircher (rbircher):

   Apache Olingo goes direction first release. They allready use mailing
   list in a good way. It looks like they allready knows how to work with
   lazy consensus.  The Mentors are active in a good way. Well, the
   documentation is poor at the moment. But the project knows this problem
   and work on it.  Looking forward for a release.
