    Comments:  Looking good- this note is to the board are there any other
    Python first projects we can look to for guidance on Python releases. IF
    this project had versions, it would be v1+ as it is in prod at various US
    Government agencies.

 None.

### How has the community developed since the last report?

 Thomas Huang delivered a (virtual) keynote address at the 2020 ApacheCon
 @Home on 9/29 and discussed our creation of the Apache Science Data
 Analytics Platform (SDAP) as a professional open source Analytics Center
 Framework (ACF) and its growing list of NASA and international
 applications.

 The COVERAGE (CEOS Ocean Variables Enabling Research and Applications for
 GEO, https://coverage.ceos.org/technology/#software) development team at
 JPL completed an initial deployment of SDAP on European cloud platform,
 WEkEO (https://wekeo.eu/).  Paired with a previously deployed SDAP on
 Amazon Web Services (AWS), an objective of COVERAGE is to enable joint
 analytics leveraging geographically distributed SDAP installations that
 host distinct yet compatible American and European satellite-based and in
 situ ocean-related datasets.

 Additional deployments of SDAP that are currently being maintained:

  - NASA Estimating the Circulation and Climate of the Ocean (ECCO) (
  https://ecco-group.org)
  - NASA Gravity Recovery & Climate Experiment (GRACE) Follow-On (
  https://grace.jpl.nasa.gov)
  - NASA Sea Level Change Portal (https://sealevel.nasa.gov)

### How has the project developed since the last report?

 Three new features:
 - SDAP-292 Add Cassandra authentication support to delete_by_query.py
 script
 - SDAP-278 Cassandra authentication for webapp
 - SDAP-258 Update Deseason Algorithm to Use Precomputed Climatologies

 Two improvements:
 - SDAP-284 Collection Manager to support recursive directory structures
 - SDAP-285 Solr not indexing lat/lon

 Eight bug fixes:
 - SDAP-282 Support configuring dimension names and projection during
 ingestion
 - SDAP-291 netcdf parsing error with GMPE dataset in Granule Ingester
 - SDAP-280 Collection Manager should not block when checking ingestion
 history
 - SDAP-279 Collection Manager does not pick up fs events with NAS mount
 - SDAP-267 config operator, manage git url or branch update in the helm
 chart
 - SDAP-261 bug fixes for new ingestion system (granule ingestion &
 collection manager)
 - SDAP-277 Better error handling in Granule Ingester
 - SDAP-281 bigdata ingestion feedback (reading time)

 Discussion about what is necessary to produce a release were beneficial
 and the path forward is clear. Goal is to get a source release before the
 end of the year.

### How would you assess the podling's maturity?

 There are several deployments of SDAP actively being used and interest is
 high. However, active participation from project members is low. First
 source release should be coming soon.

 New functionality has been added to the Distributed Oceanographic Matchup
 Service (DOMS) and Extensible Data Gateway Environment (EDGE) components
 that allow for filtering in situ measurements by a standardized quality
 flag.

### How would you assess the podling's maturity?

 There are several deployments of SDAP actively being used and interest is

 is needed to cross the t's and dot the i's in regards to meeting the
 requirements Apache has for releasing software so that we can claim a 1.0
 version of SDAP.

SDAP is an integrated data analytic framework for Big Science problems.

SDAP has been incubating since 2017-10-22.

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

 1. Make official SDAP (Incubating) Release
 2. Improve/create user guide documentation
 3. Improve committer participation

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

 No.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 Committership has been accepted by a community member. SDAP was presented
 at a Data Science Workshop @ JPL

How has the project developed since the last report?

 SDAP is still working towards its first release. Mentors have provided
 some suggestions that will be taken into consideration for the Java parts
 of the project, but the python release process also needs to be better
 understood.

 A new tool has been published that helps with reading the output produced
 from the Matchup algorithm.

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

  A member of the SDAP podling stepped up to the release manager role which
  is great. It shows the the podling is maturing.
  Unfortunately, the release candidate which was produced was not in
  compliance with the ASF release policy, thankfully Justin highlighted
  this and we are in the process of rolling the RC back. Lewis (SDAP
  champion) and the release manager are working to resolve this and get the
  first incubating release candidate finished.

How has the community developed since the last report?

  Two VOTE's have been made over on private@sdap regarding extending
  PPMC and Committership to two community contributors. This is very
  positive.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  SDAP is on the verge of it's first release. With some persistence
  the podling will have a release candidate for community VOTE soon.

IPMC/Shepherd notes:
    Dave Fisher: Most of the PPMC listed in Whimsy is not subscribed to
        private@.
        The number of developers on the dev list is small. A little too
        soon to be thinking about graduation if you ask me.
    Justin Mclean: The IPMC usually likes to see 2 or 3 releases happen
        before the project consider graduation.

 Added 2 new developers that are becoming familiar with the project and
 will soon become committers.
 SDAP has been heavily advertised at/in many Earth Science technology
 forums.
 SDAP was featured at the CUAHSI Biennial Colloquium with an aim towards
 growing the community.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 Development is still underway to push towards the first incubating
 release of SDAP and each of its subcomponents.

Have your mentors been helpful and responsive or are things falling
through the cracks? In the latter case, please list any open issues
that need to be addressed.

As mentors, we have not been very actively involved - but there's nothing ye
t that required the mentor's attention (the project is in good hands under L
ewis :-)).
Mentors are available nevertheless to help with releases and guiding the pod
ling.

    trademarks, source code compliance are the
    primary issues blocking a release right now.

  Branding, trademarks and source code compliance are the primary issues
  right now. Once these are addressed SDAP can focus on the first Incubating
  release.
