Pulsar

20 Sep 2017

Pulsar is a highly scalable, low latency messaging platform running on
commodity hardware. It provides simple pub-sub semantics over topics,
guaranteed at-least-once delivery of messages, automatic cursor management for
subscribers, and cross-datacenter replication.

Pulsar has been incubating since 2017-06-01.

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

 1. Grow the community with new Committers/PPMC members.
 2. Set up a test cluster to be able to run system tests
 3. Improve release process by having more committers taking part in releases

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 community added 2 contributors. There is a healthy discuss on issues related
to development, tools and processes among the community members.


How has the project developed since the last report?

8 authors have pushed 69 commits to master in the last 30 days.
The project has made the first release from the Apache Incubator on August 9th.
The next release is planned for mid-September. Several design documents with
improvement proposals have been submitted to the wiki and discussed in the
mailing list.

    Comments: Note v1.18 was a Github release of pre-incubation code. A release vote was just sent to general@incubator.

    Comments: Also note that the download page has a note to the effect that the 1.18 release isn't an
              Apache release. The message could be worded better, but at least it is there.

Pulsar has been incubating since 2017-06-01.

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

  1.Finish onboarding the PPMC. We have 11 of 16 fully in place. With two more
    close to setup.
  2.Make an Apache release
  3.Grow the community with new Committers/PPMC members.

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?

This is the first report. All but one of the 16 initial Committers have
participated in one way or another. The existing Pulsar Github was moved to
an Apache Github/GitBox setup. Development discussions are happening on the
dev list.


How has the project developed since the last report?

The project cut a v1.18 release with the old organization just before
conversion. The SGA has been received, the code has switched to
org.apache.pulsar and the license/copyright and headers modified to Apache.

10 authors have pushed 82 commits to the project in the last 30 days.
