Formal board meeting minutes from 2010 through present. Please Note: The board typically approves minutes from one meeting during the next board meeting, so minutes will be published roughly one month later than the scheduled date. Other corporate records are published, as is an alternate categorized view of all board meeting minutes.

Quarks

15 Jun 2016

Apache Quarks is a programming model and micro-kernel style runtime that can
be embedded in gateways and small footprint edge devices enabling local,
real-time, analytics on the continuous streams of data coming from
equipment, vehicles, systems, appliances, devices and sensors of all kinds
(for example, Raspberry Pis or smart phones). Working in conjunction with
centralized analytic systems, Apache Quarks provides efficient and timely
analytics across the whole IoT ecosystem: from the center to the edge.

Quarks has been incubating since 2016-02-29.

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

 1. Create and expand a diverse community of contributors and committers
    around Quarks project
 2. Create the first Apache release of Quarks
 3. Complete the product name search and select a suitable name

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

 Due to trademark concerns with "Quarks", the Quarks PPMC voted to change
 the project's name. A renaming discussion and public vote was held on the
 dev mailing list. The voting results are being discussed privately by the
 PPMC.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 We have added two new committers and PPMC members, Kathy Saunders and
 Queenie Ma. Kathy has taken the lead on the name search process for
 Quarks, and her positive attitude and helpfulness are an incredible asset
 for the Quarks community. Queenie has contributed content to the website
 and is a frequent participant in community discussions. The Quarks
 community is still small, as Quarks has just recently incubated, therefore
 we aim to continue growing our list in the near future.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 * According to JIRA, the project has added 27 new issues in May, and 22
   issues have been resolved.
 * On May 12, several Quarks contributors hosted an "Apache Quarks on
   Raspberry Pi" webcast where they showed how to use Quarks to work with
   real sensor data on a Raspberry Pi, and demonstrated a smart sprinkler
   application using Quarks.

Date of last release:

 Quarks is still new, so we haven't created an Apache release as of yet.

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

 In May, we added two new committers and PPMC members, Kathy Saunders and
 Queenie Ma.

 2. Create the first Apache release of Quarks
 3. Complete migration of website to host all content at Apache (javadoc is
    still on Github).

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

 Nothing jumps to mind.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 We have added a new committer and PPMC member, Cazen Lee.  Cazen started
 making valuable contributions almost immediately when Quarks went into
 incubation. The Quarks community is still small, as Quarks has just
 recently incubated, therefore we aim to continue growing our list in the
 near future.


How has the project developed since the last report?

 * According to JIRA, the project has added 59 new issues in April, and 34
   issues have been resolved.
 * On April 13th, the committers hosted an "Introduction to Quarks" webcast
   where they presented a high-level overview of the project and demonstrated
   how to write, monitor and debug Quarks applications.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 The Quarks community is keeping dev-related conversations on the mailing
 list. Because of this, it's allowed for the participation of independent
 contributors in mailing list discussions. Although our list of independent
 contributors is small, Quarks is still very new as an Apache project and
 we aim to actively grow our list in the near future.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 * The project has successfully migrated from Github-based development to
   using the Apache git repo, Jira, and the mailing lists.

Date of last release:

 Quarks is still new, so we haven't created an Apache release as of yet.

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

 No changes from the initial committers.
