* When did the project last make any releases?

The latest release was version 4.0.0-incubating on 2014-04-04

* Describe the overall activity in the project over the past quarter.

Conversion to TLP complete (kudos to INFRA on the quick turnaround).
Both dev and user lists have occasional traffic.
James Taylor gave a talk on Phoenix at the recent Hadoop Summit.
Expect next release by end of July to include:
- Support for derived/nested queries to increase breadth of SQL support.
- Alternate, complementary secondary indexing strategy called local
indexes.
- Misc built-in functions contributed from various non committers.
Work has started on reworking the type system so that it can be used
when data is stored in HBase for projects such as HBase, Hive, Drill,
Kite, and Impala.

Phoenix is an open source SQL query engine for accessing NoSQL data
stores such as Apache HBase. It is accessed as a JDBC driver and
enables querying and managing HBase tables using SQL.

Phoenix has been incubating since 12/11/2013.

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

 1) Continue to make our users successful and prove the value of
    Phoenix+HBase over other alternatives.
 2) Continue to attract new users, contributors, and committers to the
    project.
 3) Become the defacto standard for accessing data stored in NoSQL stores.

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

 No

How has the community developed since the last report?

 Both dev and user traffic is strong on the mailing list (780 and 187 mail
 messages respectively). Work is underway by an engineer from Huawei to
 add a new secondary indexing strategy called local indexing to Phoenix.
 James Taylor gave a talk on Apache Phoenix at ApacheCon. Eli Levine and
 James Taylor gave a talk on Phoenix at HBaseCon. James will also give a
 talk at Hadoop Summit. Good discussions took place at the HBase
 Hackathon on how to commonize the type system between Phoenix, HBase,
 Hive, Impala, and Kite, as well as on how Continuity's transaction support
 (soon to be open sourced) may be plugged into Phoenix. An interesting
 discussion is underway on how Phoenix can be leveraged to get SQL
 support for the Apache Accumulo project.

Phoenix is an open source SQL query engine for Apache HBase, a NoSQL data
store.  It is accessed as a JDBC driver and enables querying and managing
HBase tables using SQL.

Phoenix has been incubating since 12/11/2013.

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

 1) Make our customers successful and prove value of Phoenix+HBase over
    other alternatives
 2) Attract new committers and continue to get contributions from existing
    committers to the project
 3) Figure out a bundling strategy with HBase so that Phoenix is
    pre-installed in HBase distributions.

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

 No

 Continued growth of user/dev traffic on email list. James Taylor is giving

Shepherd/Mentor notes:

 John Ament (johndament):

   Phoenix is a newer podling, however they are growing quite fast.  While
   there were some release issues, those were resolved quite quickly on the
   general list and new releases cut quickly.  Based on this I would
   strongly recommend that the podling consider graduation sooner than
   later.  Most of their status report is complete as well.

  to point users back to our old Github issues.
