board, collaborative document editing and other groupware tools using

## Releases:
Version 3.0.5 has been released in the end of April, unfortunately it contains
one critical issue and we are preparing to release 3.0.6 this week.

functionality. As well as ongoing work in trunk for the 3.1.x tree.

We observing minor decrease in mailing list activity, but we believe this is
caused by "low season".


## Community:
Our project was accepted for GSOC this year, we have 2 students.
Unfortunately there is not very much development activity: 1-2 active
developers. We tried to start company on bountysource.com to get some
attention and money for development but wasn't successful.

## Infrastructure:

No outstanding issue.

## Board:

There is not very much development activity: 1-2 active developers, maybe we
can get some advise on how to increase the level of activity.

@Brett: Are there enough PMC members? Is the chair able to keep the board informed?

community to resolve this)

== Activity ==

The constant activity in mailing list, jira and commits.

A new initiative has been started to gather statistic on usage of

captured in the project website at
http://openmeetings.apache.org/WeNeedYou.html.

There is also a previously shelved activity around finding a new logo for

17 Sep 2014 [Sebastian Wagner / Brett]

This report was due for the board meeting in August 2014.

Apache OpenMeetings provides video conferencing, instant messaging, white
board, collaborative document editing and other groupware tools using API
functions of the Red5 Streaming Server for Remoting and Streaming.

== Releases ==

Version 3.0.2 has been released. Version 3.0.2 is the second bugfix release
of Apache OpenMeetings. There is currently a vote running for 3.0.3 and it is
expected to be released some time in September.

== Activity ==

The constant activity in mailing list, jira and commits.

The process of migrating OpenMeetings from Ant/Ivy to a Maven module build is
complete. Also the website at http://openmeetings.apache.org is re-build
using more or less the same content but using the Maven website templates.

Trunk is already version 3.1.x. Version 3.1.x reduces the amount of Flash
used again. While version 3.0.x is still using OpenLaszlo and the entire
conference room is using Flash, in version 3.1.x only the video containers
are Flash. The rest of the conference room is build using HTML5. Also this
version will build those Flash components using Apache Flex.

Infra team provided a demo server to the project. We are still in the process
of installing some of the SSL components of OpenMeetings.

The idea is to expand the automated testing in the next 6-12 months with a
Selenium test suite that runs against that server. And to integrated that
into the daily builds and release process.

== Community ==

There is constant activity in the mailing list however no new members have
been voted into a PMC role.

== Infrastructure ==

No outstanding issue. We have seen that there is some work ongoing to provide
a SSL certificate for Apache projects for code signing (INFRA-3991). We are
following that to integrate it into our build process.

== Board ==

There are no outstanding issues requiring board attention.

@Chris: pursue a report for OpenMeetings

16 Apr 2014 [Sebastian Wagner / Greg]

Apache OpenMeetings provides video conferencing, instant messaging, white
board, collaborative document editing and other groupware tools using API
functions of the Red5 Streaming Server for Remoting and Streaming.



== Releases ==

Version 3.0.0 has been released! Version 3.0.0 is the first release that uses
Apache Wicket for roughly 50% of the UI. It is a HTML5 / Flash hybrid. The
conference room is still Flash, everything else is in Wicket. Further
advancing into HTML5 for the real-time components is planned as they become
available.

== Activity ==

There is constant activity in mailing list, jira and commits.
The main focus in since the last report have been:
 - Release and review
 - Migrating to Maven

Maxim Solodovnik has migrated parts of the complex ANT/Ivy based build
process to Maven. Great effort has gone into this and we are excited to
further advance our build process into a fully Maven enhanced build, dev,
test and release process.

== Community ==



There have been a number of GSoC candidates but no project was selected this
year so far. Probably part of the problem was the lack of tailoring out some
suitable project scopes where mentors and students equally confident can
commit to.

== Infrastructure ==

We are still waiting on some resources for a demo server (INFRA-6906). We
would like to advance our project with Selenium Tests to establish a
regression testing suite. The demo server would be an integral part of that
enhancement.
We are also keen on the result of the Infra’s team effort to create a code
signing certificate from a trusted auth (INFRA-3991).

== Board ==



There are no outstanding issues requiring board attention.

Openmeetings provides video conferencing, instant messaging, white
board, collaborative document editing and other groupware tools using
API functions of the Red5 Streaming Server for Remoting and Streaming.

OpenMeetings entered the incubation on November 12, 2011.

Summary:

 Infrastructure and code clearance is done from the developer team and ready
 to be reviewed. JARs are no more in our SVN and a first NOTICE file for
 dependencies is written and to be discussed when the first official
 Release Candidate is nominated. The Release Candidate is basically ready.

 We are just working on some issues with the Flash Streaming Protocol's
 variant "RTMPT", that is Flash Streaming over HTTP Tunneling. RTMPT is
 just a fallback protocol and not the primary used in OpenMeetings.
 Nevertheless it is important to sort that out, as the Tunneling protocol
 is needed for bypassing Firewalls. The RTMPT issue is basically a Red5
 issue and we are hoping to either contribute or find other ways helping
 Red5 community to sort it out.

 Our 3 official GSoC students are doing good and we have weekly meetings
 where we discuss with them their projects. The results of the weekly
 meetings are published to the developer mailing list.

 We have a 4th volunteering student that does his GSoC project even if not
 accepted officially by Google. He does enhance the ATutor plugin for OCAD:
 http://wiki.atutor.ca/display/atutorwiki/Google+Summer+of+Code+2012#GoogleSummerofCode2012-13.EnhanceIntegrationofATutorwithApacheOpenMeetingsWebConferencing

 OCAD Devs have kindly contributed their existing Code under APL
 (https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OPENMEETINGS-280) so that the
 student can work on it and contribute his patches to the Apache
 OpenMeetings.

 Community is growing, although not all people have found their way to
 the new mailing list and website yet. But we think that will change as
 soon as there is an announcement with a new release.

OpenMeetings entered the incubation on November 12, 2011.

 - A question for PMC: Should we start a demo server on Apache, so people
   can benefit from communication?

Summary:
The project prepares some of the infrastructure, releases of the
OpenMeetings plugins and refactors the sources for a first incubator
release of the OpenMeetings Application.

Details:
The project has a number of Plugins that it releases for integration of
OpenMeetings into other platforms: Moodle Plugin, SugarCRM Plugin, those
Plugins have been refactored to be compatible with Apache License and can
be released now.

OpenMeetings project itself has replaced the Library JOD , which is part of
the conversion with OpenOffice and import of .doc/.ppt/.xls/.odp/... to
whiteboard of OpenMeetings (OPENMEETINGS-32). JOD library is not part of the
OpenMeetings distribution anymore and users will need to configure the path
to JOD library on their installation to enable the importer. This is a
temporary solution, the Developers of JOD library will change their license
to an APL compatible as soon as Apache OpenOffice successfully releases
under APL (Message from JOD Developers:
https://groups.google.com/d/msg/jodconverter/2f0bo38H59I/P_Dro3pe64QJ).

The UI interface has been refactored to have the possibility to configure
the UI elements (OPENMEETINGS-21 to OPENMEETINGS-25)

The SIP integration has been refactored and we are talking to the developers
of Red5 (http://code.google.com/p/red5phone/) how we will handle integration
between the two projects in the future.

The Red5 project has changed its license to APL
(http://code.google.com/p/red5/source/detail?r=4309)

Plan:

 - Calendar UI will be refactored to use REST API in the coming weeks
   instead of RTMP protocol, Laszlo Calendar Component (CPL licensed) will
   be removed from the sources. Conversion to REST should improve the
   possibility to switch to pure JavaScript UI on the long run.

 - The integration with Apache's Continuous Build environment is a todo.
   The current ANT script is not compatible with the Hudson/Jenkins build
   environment at ASF and needs to be refactored (OPENMEETINGS-2)

 - There are plans to add a JIRA / confluence plugin

Community:

 - There are still messages to the old project website, but the majority of
   the users have switched  to the new project website.

 - There are a number of 3th party maintained Plugins, especially for
   E-Learning frameworks like Sakai, ILias, StudIP, ATutor, ELGG. We will
   need to convert those docs/references to the ASF website.
