Polygene

15 Mar 2017 [Niclas Hedhman / Mark]

## Description:
Apache Polygene is a community based effort exploring Composite Oriented
Programming for domain centric application development.

## Issues:
Apache Zest has successfully transitioned its name to Apache Polygene, and all
interactions with infra team was smooth and went much better than expected. All
tasks related to the name change were captured in
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/POLYGENE-195 for future reference.

## Activity:
The name change spurred a lot of code activity, intersected with remaining
issues for the 3.0 release, which has been a bigger chunk of changes than we
were prepared for, hence the delays. But we will get there eventually. With one
of the most capable build systems at ASF now in place, we expect that future
releases will be frequent (by our standards).

We have also been participating in the JDK 9 Outreach program from Oracle,
where we have been asked to test against Early Releases. Our 2000 tests run
well in "legacy mode", but in "jigsaw mode" we are not compatible and have
not enabled the CI build.

## Health report:
The http://reporter.apache.org tool went a little bit bananas after the name
change, and we had some fairly high negative number of health in it. Quite
amusing in itself. Development activity was normal for our project, with a
small, typical slowdown over the holidays.

We are aware that we need to be better at capture the few interested parties
that shows up on occasions and convert them to contributors.
