Petri

21 Jul 2021 [Dave Fisher / Bertrand]

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

## Description:
The mission of Apache Petri is the creation and maintenance of software related
to assessment of, education in, and adoption of the Foundation's policies and
procedures for collaborative development and the pros and cons of joining the
Foundation

## Issues:
None

## Membership Data:
Apache Petri was founded 2019-11-19 (a year ago)
There are currently 8 committers and 5 PMC members in this project.
The Committer-to-PMC ratio is 8:5.

Community changes, past quarter:
- No new PMC members. We plan to evaluate this as cultures succeed.
- No new committers. Last addition was Justin Erenkrantz on 2020-04-23.

## Project Activity:
This quarter we made significant improvements to the Petri website.
Of interest is a new status file - https://petri.apache.org/info.yaml which
has project data and culture status.

BuildStream is making slow and steady progress on their path along
The Apache Way. They are currently in the process of connecting with copyright
holders to change to the Apache License v2.

Since the BuildStream website is yet to be moved, https://buildstream.apache.org
is mapped to the BuildStream status page https://petri.apache.org/buildstream

We've added support for OGL metadata to the website. Future posts to Facebook,
Twitter, and LinkedIn about Apache Petri will look good.

## Community Health:
The significant work on the website was prompted by two factors.
(1) Some questions from Sebb about improving our discussion of The Apache Way.
(2) PRs and Issues from a John Bampton whose contributions include pointers to a
number of tools. For some of his contributions see the tool links on
https://github.com/apache/petri-site/blob/master/DEVELOPER.md

- No new PMC members. Last addition was Daniel Shahaf on 2019-11-19.
- No new committers. Last addition was Justin Erenkrantz on 2020-04-23.

## Project Activity:
The BuildStream culture continues its migration with moving their GitLab
repository over to Apache GitBox/GitHub with Infrastructure's fine assistance.
The community continues to discuss their development efforts well on their
dev@buildstrem.apache.org mailing list.

## Community Health:
discuss@petri.apache.org had a big increase in traffic in the past quarter
(26 emails compared to 0)
Petri has a low level of activity. We have the attitude that the next
culture we foster will come to us on their own. That may change in the next
quarter.
The plan to grow Petri PMC membership is to consider the Mentors from
cultures once they have become TLPs. Culture mentors are Petri committers.

[elided from the public minutes]

## Membership Data:
Apache Petri was founded 2019-11-19 (11 months ago) There are currently 8
committers and 6 PMC members in this project. The Committer-to-PMC ratio is
4:3.

Community changes, past quarter:

- Justin Erenkrantz was added as committer on 2020-04-23
- Sander Striker was added as committer on 2020-04-23

For Petri committers are community mentors.

## Project Activity:
The BuildStream community moved their dev mailing list to
dev@buildstream.apache.org <mailto:dev@buildstream.apache.org> and began
discussions on 2020-06-02.

We are having some discussions about what the requirements should be for the
PMC to recommend a culture to become a TLP.

## Community Health:
BuildStream mailing list activity looks like proper OSS discussions in the
Apache Way w/Consensus and w/o Votes. One current discussion is moving their
GitLab repository to GitHub. An SGA and CCLA have been received. Mentors
report that people are showing up on list from the Apache Build community.

dev@buildstream.apache.org and began discussions on 2020-06-02.

In order to bootstrap the mailing list buildstream was made a podling for a
couple of hours. Two members of the IPMC noticed and commented. We are creating
a petri yaml file to track cultures, mentors, and resources. We will then need
to work with Whimsy and Infra to improve process for future cultures.

The project website now has more information.

## Community Health:
BuildStream mailing list activity looks like proper OSS discussion in the
Apache Way.

Slow to start. The OSS-Bot project has gone quiet due to Lunar New Year
and Coronavirus. Will attempt to rekindle discussion next week.

Rumblings of a possible project coming soon.

distracted by other things occurring in the Foundation.

 concern is that this community is new. It is however forming itself outside
 of the ASF. There are a few community members of projects and podlings that
 want to try it.
- Work on the project website. The FAQ is up at
 http://petri.apache.org/faq.html More work is needed on the website.

## Community Health:
- We are still bootstrapping.
- We've had 41 emails on discuss@petri.
- Ii's my hope that with the new year we will see communities applying.
