Formal board meeting minutes from 2010 through present. Please Note: The board typically approves minutes from one meeting during the next board meeting, so minutes will be published roughly one month later than the scheduled date. Other corporate records are published, as is an alternate categorized view of all board meeting minutes.

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.

OpenWhisk has been incubating since 2016-11-23.

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

 1. Moving github repos under the Apache Github Org (organization move,
    repository renames)
 2. Working to redirect openwhisk.incubator.apache.org to openwhisk.org,
    update openwhisk.org to be Apache compliant
 3. Review and update project checklist
    http://incubator.apache.org/projects/openwhisk.html

 Some items should be mark done (around infra), CLA's have been confirmed
 for all Committers. URL/links need to be updated.

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

 - No issues so far

How has the community developed since the last report?

 - All Initial Committers now have ICLA’s and have access to private email
   list
 - Nearly all pre-Incubator active contributors have signed ICLAs, a few
   new contributor ICLAs have been received
 - Project GitHub (all repos.) now govern access via 3 “Teams” Committer
   (write), Contributor-CLA (read), Contributor (read/default)
 - “dev", “private” email list traffic continues to be healthy; positive
   discussion of a few new code feature/change topics
 - GitHub project “Stars” = 1024 (a nice binary number), up a couple dozen
   from last month

How has the project developed since the last report?

 - Updated CONTRIBUTING.md to ref. Apache processes, Added CREDITS.txt to
   all repos., in process of changing all code headers to use Apache
   approved text. Need to update Travis CI checks to look for new header
   (per repo. basis)
 - Confluence WIKI established:
   https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/OPENWHISK/OpenWhisk+Project+Wiki
   - added project overview and contributor/committer role/process
     descriptions
 - website updates continue, now include “Incubator” disclaimer, working
   issues opened by community to list “supporters” and provide a form to
   submit to request to be added.
 - deprecated “whisk” object for Nodejs6 runtime (javascript)
   actions/functions in favor of single dictionary and use of Nodejs
   built-in “promises”
 - Size limits discussed and being updated for per-request/response for
   actions (and sequences) to preserve performance/reliability
 - Discussing proposals for the proper use and optimization of KV stores
   for configurations information (along with Ansible for deployments)
 - API gateway moved to support LUA as plug-in model, added OAuth support.
   Client ID/secret validation, Dynamic upstream routing using Redis
 - An OpenWhisk plug-in contribution was accepted for the serverless.com
   framework

Shepherd/Mentor notes:

 John D. Ament:

   OpenWhisk is our GitHub as master guinea pig.  However, they still don't
   have source code in our organization.  Not sure what we can do to help, or
   why that isn't listed as a problem or issue.
