Omid

19 Dec 2018

Omid is a flexible, reliable, high performant and scalable ACID
transactional
framework that allows client applications to execute transactions on top of
MVCC key/value-based NoSQL datastores (currently Apache HBase) providing
Snapshot Isolation guarantees on the accessed data.

Omid has been incubating since 2016-03-28.

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

 1. Finish integration with Apache Phoenix – Omid side was implemented and
 released.
 2. Document additional features added for the integration with Apache
 Phoenix, as well as, the low latency algorithm.
 3. Get positive feedback from other projects currently in Apache.

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?

 New committer, Yonatan Gottesman, was added to Omid’s community. Yonatan
 is very active and contributed to the integration with Phoenix.
 Moreover, Yonattan implemented the low latency version of Omid which is
 currently part of release 1.0.0.
 Integration with Apache Phoenix will be ready in a few days, early
 December.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 The vote for major release 1.0.0 passed successfully in the incubator
 general list. This release includes all the Phoenix required features.
 The release is currently being deployed to Nexus and a formal
 announcement of the release will be send shortly.
 Omid and Apache Phoenix integration is at its final stage. Omid release
 1.0.0 includes all Phoenix required features, therefore, from the Omid
 side, the integration with Phoenix is over.
 The Phoenix code is also ready and currently located in a feature branch
 that will be merged in a few days.

 Drew Farris (Shepherd) - Mentors active on the mailing lists, active
 development, and progress towards graduation observed.

--------------------
OpenWhisk
OpenWhisk is an open source, distributed Serverless computing platform able
to execute application logic (Actions) in response to events (Triggers)
from external sources (Feeds) or HTTP requests governed by conditional
logic (Rules). It provides a programming environment supported by a REST
API-based Command Line Interface (CLI) along with tooling to support
packaging and catalog services.  Additionally, it now provides options to
host the platform components as Docker containers on various Container
Frameworks such as Mesos, Kubernetes, and Compose.

OpenWhisk has been incubating since 2016-11-23.

Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
  1. Improve release automation to decrease manual steps in creating
  release artifacts.
     a. Release process/automation/documentation are here
https://github.com/apache/incubator-openwhisk-release).
     b. We have made the initial releases of 12 core software components.
 In the process we have developed some release automation, but there is a
  need to further automate the process and formalize the mechanisms for
make
  a coordinated release of all components.
  2. Increase additional company and individual Contributors to maintain
  all project repos. and address Issue / PR backlog.
  3. Close legal transferred of Trademark handoff for "OpenWhisk" name and
  logo to ASF

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be aware
of?
  1. Issue backlog building on incubator-openwhisk is still a major issue
 (partly due to #2 above). As of this report, the "open" issue backlog on
 the "main" platform repo is 397 (up from 384 as of last report). The open
 PR count on the main repo has held steady at around 30 (down from 50+ 6
 months ago), but still 1/3 of the ready-to-merge PRs are more than 1
 month old.  The PR and Issue backlog on other project repositories is
 generally much lower and of less concern than the Issue backlog on the
 main repo.
  2. Need to prioritize and work to reduce while advancing major proposals
 around restructuring around abstractions to accommodate running on
 Knative while enhancing support for better logging/scheduling and
 performance testing enhancements.
  3. Trying to add more active Committers to augment those who have
 dropped off in their activity; however, we have reached an impasse where
 potential new Contributor pull requests are not getting timely
 reviews/merges.  We have potential new Contribs. to front-end Runtimes we
 will look to nominate ASAP, but we still lack back-end Contribs.
  4. The project is still working on establishing an open staging
 environment to enable proper testing without depending on closed testing
 infrastructure at involved companies. Unfortunately, even after finally
 arranging a corporate donation to the ASF in June to support this need,
 it took until late October for Apache Infra to finish provisioning the
 machines.
 5. Formal hand-off of OpenWhisk trademark/logo from IBM needs to be
 executed; need to identify process for this. See #3 above.
   * Discussion started w/ Apache legal via "legal-discuss" mailing list
   with subject "Trademark handoff for "OpenWhisk" name and logo".
   * IBM intends to hand-off ownership of trademarks at time of
   graduation.
  6. Announcements from Google (Knative) in late July and AWS
 (Firecracker) just last week apply pressure on our community in order to
 both explain to developers/operators how OW is differentiated from, as
 well as compatible with, both popular providers’ frameworks.

How has the project developed since the last report?

Emphasis on these areas have been featured since last report:

   Google Knative

       Knative and the general popularity of Kubernetes is driving the
       community to design and document how OW can be compatible with
       Knative concepts of “Serving”, “Build” and “Eventing”.  Primarily
       we are increasing our friendliness to the Kube community to
       hopefully attract more developers to help us by improving Kube
       deployment docs and configs. for both developers and operators to more
       easily “get started”. Proposals on Wiki have stalled since Sept. need
       to revitalize the conversation.

   Release process

       Initial releases of all “core” repos (both back-end platform and
       front-end tooling) are complete.  We are adding the release of the
       new IBM donation of Composer at the time of authoring this report
       (currently undergoing IPMC VOTE).
       Rename of all "packages" (lib.) names to "apache.org", see: Re:
       Change the package name into org.apache.openwhisk for openwhisk
       modules

       We look forward to creating a unified release to assure we have a
       major/minor version that is tested to be compat. with one another
       (as now all are disparate releases).
       Need more mentor help at getting release votes through IPMC.

   Website revamp

       Completed.  Now linking in critical developer and operator docs. to
       be friendlier and provide “how tos” / tutorials to teach OW key
       features such including Web Actions, Provider samples,  Added
       “getting started” sections for Ruby and Swift, as well as for new
       Docker Desktop (with Kubernetes).

   Runtime updates:

       ActionLoop (part of Go Runtime as of today), supports a general,
       very fast mechanism for creating new Runtimes (or migrating
       existing).

       New runtime for the .NET language needs to be taken “over the
       finish line"
       See initial discussion: dotnet 2.1 Runtime for OpenWhisk

   Composer

       Passed IP Clearance, IPMC vote completed

    Comments:  In the past I have made comments on the lack of activity on
      this podling.  While activity is still low it has definitely picked up
      with several JIRAs being filed and fixed and user queries appearing on
      the mailing list and being answered.  It's good to see this pickup in
      activity.

Omid is a flexible, reliable, high performant and scalable ACID transactional
framework that allows client applications to execute transactions on top of
MVCC key/value-based NoSQL datastores (currently Apache HBase) providing
Snapshot Isolation guarantees on the accessed data.

Omid has been incubating since 2016-03-28.

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

 1. Boost project dissemination in the Apache community.
 2. Collaborate/integrate Omid with other Apache projects.
 3. Get positive feedback from other projects currently
    integrating/using Omid.

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?

 Started integration with Apache Phoenix community.
 Omid presented in the SF HBase community event in Dec.
 Omid paper accepted in FAST 2017

How has the project developed since the last report?

 Started working in the next release.

      Activity on this podling remains low but it is good to see a few
      issues files and resolved and the report filed on time and without
      prodding by the mentors.

Shepherd/Mentor notes:

 Alan Gates:

   I'm concerned about this podling.  The last commit was on August 15.
   Discounting broadcast and reminders, there have been no emails on
   the dev list since October, and there were only 3 that month.  I've
   sent email on the dev list asking if people are still actively
   involved.

 Flavio Junqueira:

   I second Alan's concern, there has been very little activity in the
   last period for this podling.

Omid is a flexible, reliable, high performant and scalable ACID
transactional framework that allows client applications to execute
transactions on top of MVCC key/value-based NoSQL datastores (currently
Apache HBase) providing Snapshot Isolation guarantees on the accessed data.

Omid has been incubating since 2016-03-28.

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

 1. Code and documentation successfully moved into the Apache
    infrastructure (See
    https://git-wip-us.apache.org/repos/asf?p=incubator-omid.git &
    http://omid.incubator.apache.org/)
 2. Prepared release guide
    (https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/OMID/Omid+Release+process),
    first release (0.8.2) under Apache
    (https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/OMID/Omid+Release+0.8.2.0)
    and upload binaries to Maven Central
 3. Active collaboration started with another Apache community: Apache Hive

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

How has the community developed since the last report?

 * Talk submitted to Hadoop Summit. It was accepted and will be
   presented on 2016-06-29
 * The Hive community is using Omid to integrate with HBase for their
