of-the-art open source stack, that enables developers to manage and deploy
production-ready predictive services for various kinds of machine learning
tasks.

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

 1. Establish a formal release schedule and process, allowing for
dependable release cycles in a manner consistent with the Apache way.
 2. Grow the community to establish diversity of background.
 3. Transition remaining former PredictionIO users from google-groups to
ASF mailing lists.

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

 None

How has the community developed since the last report?

 1. Our new committers have been actively contributing new features and
bug fixes to the core codebase.
 2. There are new local meetups about PredictionIO in Japan.
 3. There has been growing integration effort of PredictionIO on the
Heroku platform.

release, from both committers and contributors.
 2. On track to stick with a bi-monthly release schedule. Proposing a new
release for the beginning of August.

    Comments: The podling is planning a graduation vote soon. I have expressed
        concerns regarding community growth. There are several frequent contributors
        who were not invited to become committers until I asked about it. That said,
        I think this podling is maturing and nearing graduation.

    mailing lists.

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

 None

How has the community developed since the last report?

 The mailing list activity, pull requests and page views to the
 PredictionIO website (per google analytics) have greatly increased since
 the last report. We have announced our new mailing lists on ASF infra on
 the old Google Groups and have made those groups read only. Since then, we
 have seen previous joining the new ASF-based community, and some new
 contributors actively making proposals and patches.


How has the project developed since the last report?

 The project has ensured that all dependencies are Apache License 2.0
 compliant, and all code. Working to ensure that all code and documentation
 markings have the correct apache license 2.0 attributions. We have seen
 contributors who used to submit patches pre-donation are now actively
 submitting patches to the migrated codebase. There are also new
 contributors who have submitted proposals about migrating the template
 gallery to be based on ASF, which we have happily merged. New integration
 tests have also been proposed and being actively developed by new
 contributors.

Date of last release:

 No releases yet.

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

 PredictionIO is still operating with the initial committers and PMC and
 has not yet elected new committers or PMC members.

PredictionIO is an open source Machine Learning Server built on top of
state- of-the-art open source stack, that enables developers to manage and
deploy production-ready predictive services for various kinds of machine
learning tasks.

PredictionIO has been incubating since 2016-05-26.

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

 1. Unblock open issues and code merges and create the first Apache
    branded release.
 2. Migrating the existing community to Apache infrastructure, and growing
    the contributor base beyond initial committers.
 3. Implement template gallery in a more scalable, community-driven
    portal, since PredictionIO relies on templates to function.

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

 Apache JIRA and GitHub integration does not seem to be working 100%.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 We have been working to set up infrastructure on ASF, and are looking to
 migrate the community from old to new infrastructure to allow further
 growth.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 An initial set of JIRA tickets based on outstanding issues before
 incubation have been created. Initial committers / contributors are ready
 to work on them to march toward the first Apache branded release.

Date of last release:

 No releases yet

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

 2016-06-06 (initial committers for incubation)
