Please Note The Board typically approves the minutes of the previous meeting at the beginning of every Board meeting; therefore, the list below does not normally contain details from the minutes of the most recent Board meeting.

WARNING: these pages may omit some original contents of the minutes.
This is due to changes in the layout of the source minutes over the years. Fixes are being worked on.

Meeting times vary, the exact schedule is available to ASF Members and Officers, search for "calendar" in the Foundation's private index page (svn:foundation/private-index.html).

Pekko

18 Oct 2023

Pekko is a toolkit and an ecosystem for building highly concurrent,
distributed, reactive and resilient applications for Java and Scala.

Pekko has been incubating since 2022-10-24.

### Three most important unfinished issues to address before graduating:

 1. Continue v1.0.0 releases. The main modules have v1.0.0 releases but
 some modules are not yet released.
 2. Community Building.
 3. Plan future priorities.

### Are there any issues that the IPMC or ASF Board need to be aware of?

 Nothing of note.

### How has the community developed since the last report?

 Community engagement is pretty low. We're still hoping to increase it now
 that main modules have releases.

### How has the project developed since the last report?

 Main modules have seen releases.

### How would you assess the podling's maturity?
 Please feel free to add your own commentary.

### Date of last release:

 2023-09-05

### When were the last committers or PPMC members elected?

 2023-03-09 (new committer) -- no new PPMC members added - a recent
 committer invite was rejected by the person we invited

### Have your mentors been helpful and responsive?
 Mentors have been supportive. One issue is that we need some help with
 Incubator release votes. We have one open for 2 weeks and haven't yet
 received 3 votes.

### Is the PPMC managing the podling's brand / trademarks?

 VP, Brand has approved the name (https://s.apache.org/h2cwg)

### IPMC/Shepherd notes:

 The Podling Project is keep moving, and the project active contributor is
 around 15 for a year.

Pekko is a toolkit and an ecosystem for building highly concurrent,
distributed, reactive and resilient applications for Java and Scala.

Pekko has been incubating since 2022-10-24.

### Three most important unfinished issues to address before graduating:
 1. Complete the work to mention all 3rd party source in the Pekko code
 base.
 2. Get a milestone release done - at least for the core modules. This
 would facilitate the wider OSS community. We would hope that other OSS
 projects that currently support Akka would look to also support Apache
 Pekko.
 3. Community Building.

### Are there any issues that the IPMC or ASF Board need to be aware of?
 Nothing of note

### How has the community developed since the last report?
 Community engagement is pretty low. We're hoping it will pick up if we
 get a release out.

### How has the project developed since the last report?
 We're close to getting a release done for the core modules.

### How would you assess the podling's maturity?

    seeing if we can get volunteers to take on specific tasks.

    Comments:  Community is beginning to coalesce.  The main issues facing
    the development of the community is the ability to progress with
    development, we have a number of people asking what they can do, but many
    actions blocked by lack of consensus around specific topics.  Now that the
    outstanding legal questions have been answered I think the project will
    begin to progress more rapidly.
