Portals

20 Sep 2017 [David Sean Taylor / Mark]

## Description:

Apache Portals exists to promote the use of open source portal technology. We
intend to build freely available and interoperable portal software in order to
promote the use of this technology. With the Pluto project, we provide a
reference implementation for the Java portlet standard. The Jetspeed project
is a full feature enterprise open source portal. The Portals Applications
project is dedicated to providing robust, full-featured, commercial-quality,
and freely available portlet applications.

## Activity:

Apache Portals released 0 releases since the last report.

Developers are working daily with the Portlet 3.0 TCK as we implement Portlet
3.0 support for our portal products. We have challenged the validity of some
TCK tests and also fixed some TCK bugs. But since the TCK is not a releasable
artifact, we don't have any plans to release it in the future.

The Jetspeed User list has had a small amount of traffic. The sub-project
Portals Apps, and in particular the Web Content code, has had discussions and
commit activity this month. Last month a roadmap was submitted to the
Jetspeed mailing list. Work has started, but no commits yets. Several
developers are working on a project to upgrade the new release of Jetspeed to
Java generics support. Sub-project Apache Pluto has had no mailing list
activity this quarter. While the lack of activity is concerning, I expect
discussions to pick up with increased commit activity and possible releases
this coming quarter.

1. Pluto 2.0.1 - bug fix release, no release date scheduled

2. Jetspeed 2.2.1 -

Post release commit activity has picking up in August and September.
Activity on the users and dev lists has also been increasing recently.
We have come across two important bugs that should be fixed, so we may
consider a 2.2.1 release as a bug fix release.

Development of new features for 2.2.1 (or 2.2.2), based on commits, is
active including work on:

* a new Navigational feature
* toolbars
* easy one click additions of pages and portlets
* new aggregation and layout engine based to replace existing portal and
 client side aggregation engines
* enhancements to PSML, JCR integration
* reverse proxy support

-- New releases --

The Apache Portals team released three new Portals projects, all aligned to
the new Portlet API 2.0 specification (JSR-286) on May 28, 2009:

* Version 2.2.0 of the Jetspeed Enterprise Portal
* Version 2.0.0 of the Pluto Container
* Version 1.0 of several new Portals Applications

-- New committers --

none

-- Status --

1. Pluto 2.0.0 released on May 28, 2009

Fully compliant to JSR-286 Portlet API 2.0 Specification Release

Completed all work on Portlet 2.0 Specification compliance. Passing 2.0
TCK. Refactoring is completed. Jetspeed 2.2 and Pluto 2.0 are now back in
full alignment of trunks.

Post release commit activity has slowed down, to  be expected, people worked
hard on putting out this release. Activity on the users and dev lists has
been moderate. The release seems stable, only a few problems reported.

2. Jetspeed 2.2.0 released on May 28, 2009

The most important effort of this release was JSR-286 (Portlet 2.0)
conformance. Major New Features include:

* Portlet API 2.0 Support and Compliance
* Inter-Portlet Communication via Events
* New High Speed Preferences Database Storage
* New Extensible Security Model with LDAP Synchronization
* Improved Documentation including 5 New Guides (Users Guide, Admin Guide,
Developers Guide, Build Guide, Deploy Guide)
* New Improved Administrative Portlets
* New Skins
* New Maven-2 Custom Build
* Improved integration support for popular web development frameworks like
Wicket, Spring MVC, JSF, and Struts

Post release commit activity has slowed down, to  be expected, people worked
hard on putting out this release. Activity on the users and dev lists has
been lower than expected. The release seems stable, only a few problems
reported, mostly related to Maven build. We are working on a Roadmap for
the 2.2.1 release and expect development to pickup heavily over the next
few weeks.

3. Portals Applications 1.0 released on May 28, 2009

(I'll explain what this project is, since its a new, 1.0 release)

Apache Portals Applications (APA) is a new collaborative software development
project existing under the Apache Portals project. APA is dedicated to
providing robust, full-featured, commercial-quality, and freely available
Portlet Applications under the Apache license developed at the Apache
Software Foundation. The APA project releases 1.0 versions of the following
Portlet Applications and components, all targeted at the Portlet
Specification 2.0 (JR-286):

 * Gems - A collection of reusable portlets including Flash,
   Google Maps, File, Event and Browser portlets.
 * Database Browser - A portlet application dedicated to the
   development and database portlet development including scrollable
   lists and data entry forms
 * Demo - A portlet application dedicated to learning Java and Groovy
   portlet programming and tutorials, as well as some helpful weather
   and bookmark portlets
 * RSS - A portlet application dedicated to the development of RSS
   portlet features
 * Web Content - A portlet application dedicated to the development of
   Web Content rewriting and IFrame based web content.
 * Logging - Apache Portals Applications Logging, (APA Logging), is a
   utility library used to setup and deploy logging to portlet
   applications

Post release commit activity has slowed down, to  be expected, people worked
hard on putting out this release. Activity on the users and dev lists has
been almost non-existent. The release seems stable, no problems reported.
We expect development to continue on some of these sub-projects, but in my
opinion we need to improve the community by getting more vendors and end
users involved. IMO, the problem is that the Portlet API just hasn't
received as much acceptance as anticipated. I believe we should look into
supporting more accepted portal and mash-up standards relevant to our
project's charter such as Gadgets.

4. Conformed to Maven/Nexus standards at Apache

The release process took a lot longer than usual this time around. Our goal
was to cleanup and improve our release process, and align with and learn
from other projects at Apache. We invited developers from Geronimo and
Maven to review our release process, and help us improve the process.
We used Nexus to manage our Maven repositories at Apache. We hit a few
bugs with Nexus that slowed us down on the first release, but once we
got past that, the two other releases went quickly. Nexus really helps.

1. Pluto Refactoring

Completed. Jetspeed-2 and Pluto are now "in sync" in our respective trunks.
This is a major accomplishment for the Portals project and should create a
healthier environment for community.

2. Pluto JSR-286 Portlet API 2.0 Specification Release

Pluto now is passes the JSR-286 (Portlet API 2.0) compliance test. We hope
to release a new version of Pluto and Jetspeed in the next quarter.

3. Apache Con, Portals meetup

We met up in New Orleans. There were not as many committers from the
project attending as we expected. Perhaps company budgets are affecting
attendance.

4. Jetspeed-2

Merged with Pluto Refactoring branch complete. Security refactoring
complete. The SSO component is now broken. We are also in the process of
converting OJB to JPA.

2.2 is going to be a long-release in coming but it will set a foundation
for future releases.

1. Pluto Refactoring

Work is in progress on the Pluto 2.0 SPI Refactoring branch. The goal
of this branch is to bring Pluto trunk and Jetspeed trunk back in
alignment. A little history: Pluto 1.x, a new architecture severely
broke backward compatibility with the previous 1.0 API and SPI by
replacing the container object model (OM) interfaces with directly
and hard coded use of the new Deployment Descriptor based *classes*,
and almost all SPI Factory interface usages have been replaced by
direct and Pluto container internal (only) instantiation of
singletons or Portlet API implementation classes. These changes
"broke" Jetspeed, as it was coded to the more pluggable 1.0 API/SPI.
To make a long story short, we hope to have the SPI Refactoring
branch merged back in this summer and Jetspeed and Pluto back in
alignment from the trunks. We hope to complete
this work by ApacheCon.


2. Pluto JSR-286 Portlet API 2.0 Specification Release

Work is also near completion on the Portlet API 2.0 specification
implementation. One the Pluto Refactoring branch is ready,
it will be merged in and we will work towards releasing a
Portlet API 2.0 compliant release of Pluto. We hope to complete
this work by ApacheCon.


3. Apache Con, Portals meetup

We are planning another meetup for New Orleans, perhaps again
 with the Wicket team, like we did in Amsterdam

4. Jetspeed-2

Continued work towards a 2.2 release this summer and merging with
the Pluto Refactoring branch when available. Lots of commits in the
last two weeks on the security refactoring.

5. WSRP-4J

I am asking for your help with the WSRP4J project. I have
discussed this with some of you on legal, but frankly I have not
received much support. As reported in the March report, we sent
letters to both IBM and Web Collage. Web Collage responded
with a licensing contract that, in my opinion, requires legal
consultation, before signing. IBM never responded.  We really
need to get this project out of incubation. But because of the
licensing issues, we are stuck. I am asking the board to please
help us clear up the licensing issues, and to provide us with
Apache's legal council to help us solve the licensing issues.

The Apache Portals Applications sub-project was voted upon and accepted by
the PMC.

Apache Portals Applications (APA) is a collaborative software development
project existing under the Apache Portals project. APA is dedicated to
providing robust, full-featured, commercial-quality, and freely available
Portlet Applications under the Apache license developed at the Apache
Software Foundation.

Mission:

To promote the use of open source portal technology at the application
layer: writing open portlet applications. The scope of APA does not include
the system layer of portal development, such as portals and containers like
Jetspeed, Pluto, or WSRP. We view portlet applications as an important
technology in the growing web applications environment. We intend to build
freely available portlet application software in order to promote the use
of this technology. After several years of Apache Portals providing portal
and container software, we are finding that portal technology has reached
limited success. We believe the cause to this limited success is the lack
of usable, open source portlet applications.

Voting has started on the Pluto 1.1.5 release and is in progress this week.

The WSRP4J project is still problematic. I have discussed this on legal
It was recommended that I, the Portals representative, send letters to
both patent holders, IBM and Web Collage. Here is the letter sent to IBM:

 Dear Sir or Madam,

 I'm writing to request an IBM patent license in support of the OASIS WSRP
 Version 1 Specification, in accordance to the IPR claims from IBM as made
 available on the following website:

   http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/wsrp/ipr.php

 I'm requesting this patent license on behalf of the Apache Software
 Foundation (ASF) and as Vice President of the Apache Portals project,
 and in particular
 for the Apache WSRP4J project which is working towards a formal release
 of an OASIS WSRP Version 1 implementation under the Apache License 2.0.

 The Apache WSRP4J project was initiated by IBM and include an initial
 source code donation and a Software License Agreement by IBM representative
 Dirk Wittkopp, Manager Portal Development, on September 2nd 2003.

 Although the Software License Agreement covers a patent license for the
 donated source code itself, it is not complete clear to us if this fully
 covers all possible patent claims of IBM concerning the OASIS WSRP
 Version 1 Specification.

 To be sure our WSRP4J implementation won't be unintentionally infringing
 these IBM patent claims, we'd like to receive a nonexclusive, royalty
 free patent license for these patents in addition to the above mentioned
 Software License Agreement.

 Yours faithfully,

 David Sean Taylor
 VP Apache Portals

and the letter to Web Collage:

 Dear Mr Natovich,

 I'm writing to request a WebCollage patent license in support of the OASIS
 WSRP Version 1 Specification, in accordance to the IPR claims from WebCollage
 as made available on the following website:

   http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/wsrp/ipr.php

 I'm requesting this patent license on behalf of the Apache Software Foundation
 (ASF) and as Vice President of the Apache Portals project, and in particular
 for the Apache WSRP4J project which is working towards a formal release of
 OASIS WSRP Version 1 implementation under the Apache License 2.0.

JSR-286 implementation is coming along at Pluto, and we plan to integrate
with it in Jetspeed in the 1st Quarter 2008. At ApacheCon, all Portals
committers agreed in principal to starting the Portals Applications
subproject at Apache Portals.

The WSRP4J project is still problematic. I am trying to learn more about
the licensing problems, and why this issue prohibits moving WSRP4J out of
incubator Any help from legal is much appreciated as we have been stuck

We agreed to have a secret vote, where all the people in the PMC sent
their vote to Santiago Gala (outgoing chair). Henri Yandell
participated as a "trusted third party" too.

June 6

The vote was officially closed.

June 7

David Sean Taylor was chosen as Chair of the Apache Portals project.

June 15

The Portals Graffito project (still in incubator) was voted to be
"retired"
http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/incubator-graffito-dev/200706.mbox/browser

The source code will be redistributed to the Apache Jackrabbit project
and possibly Jetspeed-2 project.  Committers of Grafitto were invited
to become committers at the Apache Jackrabbit project.

June 18

Torsten Dettborn was voted in as a committer

Other activities include further interest brewing in WSRP4J. We
believe this project can still make it out of incubator.  Jetspeed
2.1.1 and Bridges 1.0.2 are scheduled for release by the end of June,
a bug fix release but also including new Bridges support for Wicket
and Groovy portlets.

Henri noted that t here was a note from Santiago that he put in a report for May so it seems that there might be some confusion on the schedule of the portals report. He suggested we move it to months 2-5-8-11.

Approved by General Consent.

16 May 2007 [Santiago Gala / Henri]

The quest for a new Chair is taking longer than expected, as we
implemented the decision to invite all active committers to the Portals
PMC, so that they could take part in the vote for a new chair.

We have progressed in the sense that people has been invited, and a
substantial part accepted. But getting everybody subscribed to the
private@ list, and attending a roll call there, in a world were our
server is no longer accepting @apache.org addresses forwarded via gmail
is taking forever.

The new chair election is pending that we complete a roll call in
private@, so that we know all voters are listening before we start the
vote.

Other than this, pluto release 1.1.3 has been voted, and some fresh
activity around wsrp4j has been started after face to face meetings in
ApacheCON Europe.

Justin provided insight regarding the Gmail/Apache issue mentioned in the report. Gmail does not forge the envelope - so the person's @gmail.com address needs to be in the allow list in ezmlm. Justin suggested that perhaps the moderators for that list have not been active. Henri also suggested that the moderator is unable to do their moderate operations.

Approved by General Consent.

25 Apr 2007 [Santiago Gala / Henri]

New committers: Philip Mark Donaghy

New PMC Members: Elliot Metsger.

JSR-286 kept publishing open drafts about the ongoing results.

Raphael Luta went to emeritus in the PMC. Raphael has been around since
the very beginnings of the project, and designed the original and
current PSML markup in jetspeed, as well as a number of important inputs
in what later became JSR-168. We will miss his insight and good hand.

We had a healthy discussion on compliance of new formal requirements on
releases, that prompted major cooperation between different areas of the
project. This came as pluto, bridges and jetspeed releases all were not
following the last requirements about headers.

Pluto is moving fast with JSR-286 getting close to completion, and
discussions about how draft implementations coming from the JSR process
are to be integrated in the current code base.

Code Releases
Jetspeed released 2.1
Pluto released 1.1.0, 1.1.1 and 1.1.2. 1.1.3 is being voted.

The process of electing a new Chair has been started. It is proceeding
slowly, and I hope the next report can have a proposal for a new Chair
resolution attached.

The board noted that, even though no progress has been made on the selection/election/approval of a new chair for the PMC, other healthy activity, such as adding new members to the PMC, exists. Although the board still expects a change in chair, it did not feel the need to "push" it for this month.

Approved by General Consent.

28 Mar 2007 [Santiago Gala / Henri]

Jim expressed concern with the lack of reporting. Henri will contact Santiago regarding his availability and work- load and whether remaining chair is feasible. Greg will contact the PMC asking for a report.

No report.

20 Dec 2006 [Santiago Gala / Dirk]

No report provided. Greg noted that their September report noted a possible chair change to address the relatively poor submissions of reports.

20 Sep 2006 [Santiago Gala / Greg]

- JSR-286 keeps going. There was discussion
 because the JSR-286 lead had contracted
 a reference implementation of the changes
 to pluto to be developed by a University, that was
 using Apache branding in a confusing way, and
 there were concerns about a code dump
 similar to the one that happened when JSR-168
 was going on. Concerns seem resolved, and the
 development will talke place in a branch in portals
 SVN.

- Development keeps going on as usual, with
 some areas stronger than other. Several releases
 are ongoing.

- WSRP4J still is quiescent. Maybe the remaining IP
 issues in Oasis. Not sure. Community wise it looks
 like global interest on it is decaying

- Graffito got new committers, perspectives look
 good towards graduation

- The chair is too busy, and finds no longer rewarding
 the administrative work required to keep portals
 tidy. I'm resigning as soon as other person is elected
 that can take the position. The PMC will propose a
 name to the Board soon.

Greg noted the heads-up on a chair change mentioned in the report.

Q1
==

After ApacheCON 2005 San Diego, we got some progress in how to further
integrate the jetspeed, cocoon and pluto portals modules, so that the
code base gets more modular.

New portals committers: (David Jencks, Ralph Goers, Ulrich Kuester)

Jetspeed kept teady progress towards 2.1
Ditto for Pluto towards 1.1
WSRP4J is again seeing some activity after a long time dormant

Q2
==

Little activity in the -dev lists, mostly meaning that most of the
committer base is busy working towards forthcoming releases and/or day
work, related in most cases with portals.

Pluto is about to release version 1.1.  pluto-1.1beta1, released May
18, passes the JSR-168 TCK, except for two bugs


The chairman, i.e. /me, i.e. Santiago Gala, has been lacking time to
devote to the portals.apache.org project due to personal circunstances
and the fact that my day job is no longer related with portals.

I am seeing community problems at portals as a whole. Little
integration effort has been going on after the F2F meeting at San
Diego, where significant progress went on towards the acceptance of
portals-bridges as a place for common (non container) JSR-168 code,
and pluto as the place for container work. Fortunately all
portals.apache.org implementations (cocoon portal, jetspeed-2,
jetspeed-1-fusion) do use pluto as a base.

JSR-286 got started for a revision of JSR-168, with an Apache Portals
committer as chair, and the first notification on our lists came from
a third party committer posting in our lists about it. This is not a
good symptom of integration at the pmc level.

Also, the presence of several active committer around the expert group
would probably distract discussions from the public lists.

The fact that a lot of technical discussions are being held over irc
is not a good symptom, either.

I am planning to address those issues, including a formal charter and
election for PMC Chair after ApacheCON EU, trying to get some
advantage of the set of F2F meetings there and the fact that final
exams are close to stop sucking my time.

In his report, Santiago Gala expressed some concerns regarding the project. The board understands and appreciates the concerns and requests an update at the next board meeting.

21 Dec 2005 [Santiago Gala / Jim]

Executive Summary

Busy quarter, with Jetspeed 2.0 released, while pluto is making steady
progress towards a refactored 1.1. Two portals-related tutorials and one
session during ApacheCON US 2005

General Progress

After WSRP4J finished migration to svn, all portal (or prospective
portals) modules are stored in subversion.
Rising activity in Pluto, with 1.0.1 release. Jetspeed uses 1.0.1 now.
Strong discussions, in the general list, on how to partition and share
different modules in jetspeed, pluto, etc.

Releases

jetspeed-2.0
pluto 1.0.1
pluto-1.1 -RC

Open Issues

The IP policy in Oasis issue around the WSRP standard is about the only
remaining issue holding WSRP4J from a graduation from incubator. During
conversations at San Diego with Noel J. Bergman, Davanum Srinivas and
Cliff Schmidt a procedure to deal with the issue was outlined, and we
will proceed shortly with it.

Changes in Committership

No changes, except that the two new committers quoted in the last report
are effectively in.

Changes in PMC membership

No changes

Executive Summary

Relatively quiet quarter. Bug fixing, user questions, etc. Mostly
business as usual.

General Progress

Two Google "Summers of Code" grants, one in WSRP4J, mentored by Julie
MacNaught, another one in Jetspeed, mentored by Santiago Gala.
Rising activity in Pluto, with two new committers voted and 1.0.1-rc4
candidate release.
Jetspeed uses 1.0.1-rc4 now, we were using a snapshot build due to the
need of a bug fix until rc4 was released.
Jetspeed spawned a repository module (bridges) containing helping code
for the use of different web frameworks in portlet programming.
Initially it contains velocity, struts, jsf, perl and php code, and soon
it will contain a python bridge too.
Graffito (incubating) and latest Jetspeed-2 HEAD are in sync again,
after some changes in Jetspeed broke the integration.

Releases

pluto 1.0.1-RC4 was released Aug 9, and 1.0.1 is about to be released.
The 1.0.1 release is the HEAD of the development, and just includes
bugfixes on the 1.0 implementation. A code refactoring is under a 1.1
branch, that will be released after 1.0.1, when developers are satisfied
with the results.

Open Issues

WSRP4J has a test migration to svn, pending tests and our "go" for infra
to move it.
The IP policy in Oasis issue around the WSRP standard is about the only
remaining issue holding WSRP4J from a graduation from incubator.

Changes in Committership

Two new committers (just voted in) in Pluto, pending our request for
CLA/infra:
Ulrich Kuester
Zheng Zhong

Changes in PMC membership

28 Jul 2005 [Santiago Gala]

Executive Summary
Pluto keeps releasing minor bugfixes, jetspeed released 1.6, the last stable
version of the 1 series, and keeps releasing milestone builds towards 2.0. We
completed migration towards jira and subversion, except for incubating wsrp4j.

General Progress
Interest in jetspeed has been raising steadily. The portlet spec is getting
awareness and traction from vendors and companies. Jetspeed 1 is more and more
stable and supporting JSR-168 portlets since 1.6. Jetspeed 2 gets closer to
the release and is fairly stable now, lacking mostly documentation, bugfix and
performance work. Pluto has been fixing bugs and releasing minor RC builds on
its way towards 1.0.1.
Two Google SummerOfCode grants were accepted to work in the project. One for
jetspeed, mentored by Santiago Gala, to get an ajax rendered for the
jetspeed-2 portal. Other for wsrp4j, under incubation, to be mentored by Julie
MacNaught, in order to refactor the donated code and have a better build
system.

Releases
Jetspeed released 1.6, with JSR-168 support, in May. Two milestone builds (M2
and M3) in our way towards version 2. Pluto released minor bugfix release
candidates, 1.0.1-rc3 recently, and work is under way, with 1.0.1-rc4, for a
1.0.1 release. Work for a refactored 1.1 release, which will focus on having
cleaner portlet container to portal APIs is about to become the focus.

Open Issues
- WSRP4J problems with regards to Oasis IP policies have been detected. No
 further action will be taken until global conversations with the parties
 involved yield some fruit.
- A bridge to code portlets using php is being developed. It requires php
 sources to build, as it uses jni. Clarify licensing issues.

Changes in Committership
 Craig Doremus (Pluto), in February
 Diego Louzan (WSRP4J), in February

Changes in PMC membership
 Nick Lothian (Pluto) in January
 Ate Douma (Jetspeed), in February

 Executive Summary

 Business as usual, some infrastructure bottlenecks, as setting up
 Subversion repos require apmail and planning for movement of mail
 lists. The only things that requires Board attention is the
 potentially encumbering patents declared by Oasis for WSRP4J.

 Standing Issues

 * In the context of the Oasis IP policy brought up by dims, we found
   that WSRP4J is significantly affected by a patent from WebCollage and
   several from IBM. IBM grants royalty-free licenses for patents
   affecting the standard implementation, but the situation WRT TBD is
   not clear, as well as the scope of the patent. We are aware that
   negotiations with Oasis are ongoing, and want to be in the loop,
   both to provide any needed information and to clear uncertainties
   on the standard.
   http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/wsrp/ipr.php


 * We are seeing little cross-pollination between the different
   projects, as pluto and WSRP4J are highly specialized
   infrastructure projects, devoted to implementation of standards,
   while Jetspeed and the portlet application samples are much higher
   in the software stack. This attracts different kind of developers
   at each project. This is not bad per se, but asks for higher
   cross-pollination between the different groups. Common involvement
   in infrastructure tasks will probably be key to achieving better
   cohesion in the community.

 Community changes

 * Craig Doremus as new committer in pluto
 * Diego Louzán as new committer in WSRP4J
 * Randall Watler as new committer in Jetspeed
 * Ate Douma and Nick Lothian were elected for the Apache Portals PMC

 Releases

 * Jetspeed-2.0-M1 (Dec, 2004)
 * Jetspeed-1.6RC1 with preliminary JSR-168 support
 * Pluto 1.0.1-RC2 (Dec 21, 2004) with bugfixes on the initial import

 Technical events

 * Jetspeed-1.6-dev dropped support of tomcat-4. Dropping needed for
   compatibility with new JSR-168 portlets. Pluto had done the same
   time ago, as the way portlet applications are deployed requires
   very specific session sharing semantics

 * Raphael has moved experimentally jetspeed documentation to Forrest
   format, which he became familiar with through Grafitto. Most of the
   community is interested, and it could help us to attain better user
   support.

 Infrastructure news

 There remain several lists in jakarta (jetspeed-dev and
 jetspeed-user). This and the fact that subversion was having
 intermittent problems refrained us from the move to subversion. It is
 in process now, I think we could manage it with a small push with
 some help from apmail people to move the lists. The plan is at
 http://wiki.apache.org/portals/JetspeedMigration , and cvs2svn has
 been tested on the repository. Raphael Luta is the main entry point
 for this effort. It would be useful if one of the four ASF members
 in the PMC could get proficient and into apmail (privacywise simpler)

In general, activity has been positive. I have been able to give more
time to the project. In addition, Raphael Luta, a long timer which had
to left, came back to activity asking for PMC membership. In the while
David Taylor has kept the leadership, with Carsten and the rest of the
team doing an amazing job.

New PMC member
- - Raphael Luta

New Committers
- - Scott Goldstein (primarily WSRP4J, though welcome to go further)
- - Shinsuke Sugaya (Jetspeed 1 and 2 )

Features
* Fusion code for running JSR-168 portlets inside Jetspeed-1.
* JCMS was voted as a subproject for incubation, bringing the CMS
 bridges as a portlet application.
* Jetspeed is approaching the 1.6 release, enabling it to run JSR-168
 portlet applications.
* Jetspeed 2 is approaching a milestone alpha release, a kind of
 "Technology Preview". It will likely happen before year's end.
* Pluto plans the 1.0.1 release, bug fix, clarification and
 documentation

Infrastructure
* The site was moved to subversion, following Pluto

Missing
* The move of Jetspeed to subversion is planned for just after
 releasing Jetspeed 1.6 and Jetspeed-2 M1
* The request for incubation of the JCMS code base will come shortly
 - heading for the Incubator, with Raphael Luta as mentor.
* Cleanup of mail lists still under jakarta
* Graduation of wsrp4j

17 Mar 2004 [Santiago Gala]

The Portals project infrastructure setup has proceeded rather slowly,
due to most involved people being buried in their dayjobs and having
little time and energy remaining. We all expect that during March we
can have all infrastructure issues solved and start offering a
"visible" website, lists and repositories.

* The pmc@portals.apache.org and general@portals.apache.org mailing
lists were setup. It was agreed to keep separate -dev lists for the
different modules, instead of merging them together into a unique -dev
list.

* The Portals PMC agreed to accept the Pluto codebase in the Apache
Portals project. This vote was held (incorrectly) in the pmc list, and
will be repeated in the public general list once this list has been
publicized.

* David Taylor will use Maven to generate the web site, and he is
contacting people who can help to design a logo for the Portals effort.

* Pluto is currently in the process of preparing the first release -
Carsten Ziegeler has taken over the task of the release manager and it
seems that the team will have finished all open tasks in early April.

* Santiago Gala will ask for a graduation vote of pluto out of the
incubator and into the portals project, and follow up whatever needs to
be done to successfully graduate pluto.
