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.

Optiq

15 Oct 2014

Optiq/Calcite is a highly customizable engine for parsing and planning queries
on data in a wide variety of formats. It allows database-like access, and in
particular a SQL interface and advanced query optimization, for data not
residing in a traditional database.

Optiq/Calcite has been incubating since 2014-05-19.

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

 1. Complete renaming to Calcite.

 2. Re-organize code into org.apache.calcite namespace

 3. Create a product worthy of a "1.0" label.

 4. Improve web site

 5. Build an ASF community

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

 None.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 We held our first meetup, a hackathon hosted by MapR. It was well-attended,
 and we attracted a number of new contributors at various skill levels,
 who produced a number of contributions that have since been committed.

 Julian Hyde spoke to over 200 attendees at the Seattle Scalability meetup
 on how Apache Hive uses Apache Optiq to do its cost-based optimization.

 In September, there were 72 messages on dev@, 38 commits, 36 issues created,
 30 issues resolved.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 We completed https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PODLINGNAMESEARCH-51
 and concluded that Optiq was not a viable name.
 We agreed (via PPMC vote and consensus on dev) that Calcite was suitable new
 name, and logged https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PODLINGNAMESEARCH-56,
 which has been approved by legal. Now we are part way through renaming;
 see https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-8413

 We expect to have a release candidate for apache-calcite-0.9.1-incubating
 to go to a PPMC vote this week.

Optiq has been incubating since 2014-05-19.

 2. Re-organize code into org.apache.optiq namespace.

 3. Improve web site.

 4. Build an ASF community.

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

 None.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 We are planning our first hackathon.

 There have been community discussions about the goals for a future
 1.0 release, in particular whether the project should be reorganized
 to allow projects to use the optimizer core without using SQL parser
 and code-generation facilities.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 Adopting Apache infrastructure:

  * First release approved by PPMC and Incubator PMC
  * Web site

 We will push our and announce the release shortly.

 Apache infrastructure is extremely frustrating. The release has
 taken a lot longer than it should have because it frequently makes
 this newbie feel like an idiot. Questions are answered promptly but
 it is difficult to know what questions to ask.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 We have added our first post-incubation committer, Vladimir
 Sitnikov.

 We are planning our first hackathon.

 and code-generation facilities.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 Adopting Apache infrastructure:

  * Gained access to Nexus and started publishing (on-demand, not
    nightly) snapshot builds.

  * Web site in progress.

 Working on first release under the Apache incubator,
 apache-optiq-0.9.0-incubating.

  2. Re-organize code into org.apache.optiq namespace.

  3. Regular releases.

  4. Build an ASF community.

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

 With the mentors' permission, we released an unofficial
 release, optiq-0.8. Optiq has been making regular releases,
 approximately monthly, and this has built momentum in the
 community. Continuing this practice helps hold the community
 together. We intend to that the next release (0.9, end of July)
 is an official Apache Incubator release.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 This is our first report. The community remains very similar to
 the point where we joined the Incubator.

 We are doing outreach.

 * Julian Hyde gave two talks related to Optiq at Hadoop Summit.

 * Julian Hyde attended the ACM SIGMOD conference and discussed
   Optiq with several researchers.  Optiq was mentioned in
   several talks there.

 * An online meeting (via Google hangouts) for the community is
   scheduled for July 1st.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 This is our first report.

 Adopting Apache infrastructure:

  * We have completed necessary SGAs, and transferred code from
    github to Apache git, and begun committing to Apache
    git. (Original github site still online, but marked
    "retired" with redirection page.)

  * We have transferred github issues to Apache JIRA, and are
    using Apache JIRA for issue management.

  * Some members have complained that the traffic on dev@ is too
    great - requesting an issues@ mailing list for jira update
    traffic.

 We made an unofficial release (optiq-0.8) on 2014-06-27.

Date of last release:

 No releases yet under the Incubator. (But see unofficial
 release 0.8, above.)

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

 No new committers since we joined the Incubator.
