Orc

21 Oct 2015 [Owen O'Malley / Greg]

## Description:
   A high-performance columnar file format for Hadoop workloads.

## Issues:
 - Progress in separating out the Java ORC reader & writer from Hive has gone
   slowly. The progress on HIVE-10171 is currently 19 of 24 sub-taskes done.
   Part of the problem has been a lot of conflicting activity in the ORC code
   base from the development of LLAP. The LLAP branch has merged, which should
   slow down the churn on the code base.
 - The project needs to make a release soon to start developing the community.
   The release is blocked by getting the Java code out of Hive.

## Activity:
 - The Java ORC reader & writer, which are still in Hive, had 142 commits
   in the last 3 months.
 - The C++ ORC reader has only had 2 commits.

## Health report:
 - The activity is low. There are users asking for the Java release, which we
   are working on.

## PMC changes:

 - Currently 5 PMC members.
 - No new PMC members added in the last 3 months
 - Last PMC addition was Prasanth Jayachandran at Tue Apr 21 2015

## Description:
   A high-performance columnar file format for Hadoop workloads.

## Activity:
 - The project is continuing work on refactoring the Hive and Orc Java
   code base inside the Hive project to minimize the time that the
   code is forked before it can be replaced with a reference to the
   new project. The work can be tracked in HIVE-10171.
 - The C++ implementation has been moved over from github.

## PMC/Committership changes:

 - Currently 12 committers and 5 PMC members in the project.
