Project activity over the last quarter related to updating the website to
reflect that BuildStream is now a TLP. We cleaned up the DOAP file to add the
Git repository. PRs are welcome so that we can better guide future cultures.

## Community Health:
There were hallway discussions about possible new cultures that could follow the
Petri process to join the ASF. We have started discussions on discuss@petri.a.o
about how we can do better with the next cultures and what lessons we have
learned from BuildStream.

## Project Activity:
No activity in the last quarter. We do need to update the website. Since we
were formed with an understanding that we were not to compete with the
Incubator it is hard to work to find existing communities that want to consider
joining the ASF.

## Community Health:
Nothing much is happening, but if something does happen we stand ready. If any
Foundation Member wishes to join then please feel free.

## Project Activity:
The Board approved the TLP resolution for our first and only culture -
BuildStream at the last board meeting. The significant change for that project
was a license change from GPL to the ALv2 along with moving from a GNU
project to an ASF project.

We still have some website updates to make regarding BuildStream.

## Community Health:
We remain open for further cultures. We will likely be sending a note to
members@a.o to inform the membership that Petri may be a fit for helping
convert existing communities they are part of into ASF projects.

## Issues:
In the next month or two we plan to recommend a Direct to TLP Resolution for the
BuildStream community. This is the first and only Petri culture. Does this board
expect anything more than the resolution, links to the mailing lists, and a
"Podling Name Search"?

We should connect with members to see if they have any communities that could
follow after BuildStream.

## Project Activity:
The Buildstream culture is nearly ready to cut a 2.0 Beta release following the
Apache release policy. They recently added a new plugin repository. We discussed
some of the licensing and notice requirements last month.

## Community Health:
Not much happens in Petri. We have our one initial culture - Buildstream. As
it becomes a new TLP we should discuss how to promote Petri as an alternative
to the Incubator for certain types of existing communities.

progress.

a curated list of eight urls which provide guidance about The Apache Way.

## Community Health:
The BuildStream community is working through IP issues deciding where they
have ICLAs and SGAs covered and how to handle the code where they do not.
The commits list shows good activity on their GitHub repository.

There is a GitHub PR under review to convert the license from LGPL to ALv2.
The attention of the mentors may be needed to push this step to completion.

## Community Health:
The community was quiet this last quarter. Activity on the website was about
conversion to the latest ASF Pelican which is housekeeping.

If any ASF Member knows a community that may be interested please raise a
discussion at either discuss@petri.a.o or private@petri.a.o

## 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

## 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.

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.

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

- Discussion about OSSBot a community whose goal is to enable synchronous
 translation between Chinese and English and WeChat and Mailing Lists. A
 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.
