PageSpeed

21 Nov 2018

Report was filed, but display is awaiting the approval of the Board minutes.

19 Sep 2018

PageSpeed represents a series of open source technologies to help make the
web faster by rewriting web pages to reduce latency and bandwidth.

PageSpeed has been incubating since 2017-09-30.

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

 1. Create a first release
 2. The project needs more active developers

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

 The last report being missed was my bad (oschaaf), I was on vacation
 and forgot to ask someone else to do it.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 Again, there have been very limited external contributions, two
 contributions to the core code-base.
 We do see certain users committing to helping out others on the google
 group and github, some of them consistently for months now.
 In terms of user engagement activity continues to be healthy.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 - Problems with Travis timeouts have been mostly fixed
 - Flaking dependencies hosted on sourcefourge have been fixed
 - Work is still in progress for a particularly nasty bug, which
   would be great to have fixed in a first release.
 - An external contributor has been maintaining a docker image
   for ngx_pagespeed, which should be proposed for inclusion into
   the ASF repo soon

    Comments: A healthy level of activity in github/issues, but the dev
    list is looking thin (I don't recollect any of the issues reported
    above discussed there), and community development seems slow.

PageSpeed has been incubating since 2017-09-30.

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

 1. Work on ASF compliance with regard to the code base and website
    needs review.
 2. Create a first release
 3. Engage more active developers, expanding the 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?

 One new pmc member/committer joined. There have been external contributions to
 the code, but those have been mostly one-offs and not to the core product.
 We do see certain users committing to helping out others on the google group
 and github, some of them consistently for months now.
 In terms of user engagement activity continues to be healthy.
 (lots of questions, some of which have been added to the FAQ).


How has the project developed since the last report?

 Changes with regard to ASF/incubator compliance for the code-base,
 dependencies, and existing website have been made for mod_pagespeed.

 There have been non-trivial dependency upgrades to address platform
 compatibility issues.

 A bug fix for a relatively frequently reported issue is under review.

 A discussion on dev@ will be initiated to gauge consensus for spinning up
 the release process based on the current code-base. The advantage is that
 doing so would make transitioning from Google- to ASF- signed releases
 low friction.

How has the community developed since the last report?

The dev list is showing much more activity since the last board report:
- Gitbox notifications are now reflected to dev@
- Most discussions by devs have had dev@ looped in

One of the original team members from Google has been invited to join
as a PMC member/committer.

Limited contributions from outside of the initial committer group:
Documentation fixes, cpanel support.

How has the project developed since the last report?

- The initial code drop has been performed
- The project was voted to switch to Commit-to-Review while we work
 on license compliance and lots of small changes are anticipated.
- It looks like RAT compliance is close to being done.
- A first pass for assembling NOTICE and LICENSE for mod_pagespeed
 is under review.
- Dependencies have been updated, a reliability fix was merged

How has the community developed since the last report?

- A new potential committer indicated interest in joining the PageSpeed initiative
by maintaining the FreeBSD port he contributed and updating it to the latest, and
upstreaming required changes to support the new platform to make future updates
easier.

How has the project developed since the last report?

- Some technical hurdles were encountered while trying to run the RAT tools on
the codebase. The plan is to pick this up again after the initial code drop has been
performed to the ASF repo.
- We are working on getting the source code into the ASF repository.
- Progress was made on new features and getting the module distributed more widely.
