Royale

15 Nov 2017 [Harbs / Jim]

Report was filed, but display is awaiting the approval of the Board minutes.

18 Oct 2017 [Harbs / Jim]

## DESCRIPTION
Apache Royale is a new implementation of the principles of Apache Flex but
designed for JavaScript runtimes instead of Adobe Flash/AIR runtimes.  Apache
Royale is designed to improve developer productivity in creating applications
for wherever Javascript runs, including browsers as well as Apache Cordova
applications, Node, etc.

Apache Royale was approved as a new TLP in the September meeting.  Royale took
over responsibility for the code related to what was known as Apache FlexJS
from the Apache Flex community. This is our first report.

## ISSUES
There are no issues requiring board attention at this time.

## RELEASES
- Apache FlexJS 0.8.0 was released on 6/25/17.

## ACTIVITY
- Apache Royale was approved on September 20, 2017.  There some delays getting
Royale entered in committee-info.txt in order to allow Infra to start setting
up the project.  However, at the time of this report, we believe Infra has
completed all of its tasks.

- There is quite a bit of work required to deal with the rename of the project
and a lot of progress has been made towards that goal.

- One PMC member is working on a website for the project. We expect him to
have some results to show soon.

## COMMUNITY
The community is still working through the transition from Apache Flex to
Apache Royale.

Currently, users@royale has 29 subscribers and dev@royale has 42 subscribers.
There has been interest from the community which might lead to new
contributors.

Future reports will contain information about:

-Last committer added
-Last PMC member added
-Latest analytics and statistics:
- Website hits per day
- Number of known installs

## TRADEMARKS
Several PMC members wanted to allow another PMC member to use royalesdk.io
and/or royalesdk.org to externally host some content to promote Apache Royale.
Trademarks denied use of that domain name. We might revisit the topic if and
when there is a concrete reason to do so.

## SECURITY Nothing to report.
