## Description:
- Apache STeVe is Apache's Python based voting system that the Foundation uses
 to handle things like voting in our new Board of Directors.

## Issues:
- There are no issues that require board attention.

## Activity:
- No noticeable activity in the past quarter, as expected by the fact that the
 project mostly revolves around the annual meeting.
- Several apache communities have been using STeVe in the past quarter
 to conduct official votes on issues, though not much feedback has
 made it back to the STeVe community.

## Health report:
- The automated score of -2 somewhat accurately reflects the project. While
 we do have PMC oversight, there has been no considerable efforts
 to further develop the system. We may have to start discussing
 how to better reach out to new developers/contributors and get
 folks interested in working on STeVe.

## PMC changes:

- Currently 5 PMC members.
- No new PMC members added in the last 3 months
- Last PMC addition was Rich Bowen on Sun Apr 19 2015

## Committer base changes:

- Currently 9 committers.
- No new committers added in the last 3 months
- Last committer addition was Pierre Smits at Tue Dec 15 2015

## Releases:

- No releases have been made as of yet.

- No real changes to the list activities and around 10 emails
 sent to the various lists over the past quarter.

## JIRA activity:

- 3 JIRA tickets created in the last 3 months
- 0 JIRA tickets closed/resolved in the last 3 months

## Description:
 - Apache STeVe is Apache's Python based voting system that the
   Foundation uses to handle things like voting in our new Board of
   Directors.

## Issues:
 - There are no issues requiring board attention at this time

## Activity:
 - No real activity to speak of. The project appears to be in
   maintenance mode mostly.

## Health report:
 - Low activity. After the annual members meeting, a few additional
   tickets were created, but we have yet to see new contributors step
   forward. There are still sufficient PMC members for oversight. I'll
   kick off a discussion in the project about our next steps. There have
   been inquiries about the use of STeVe in other organisations.

18 Jan 2017 [Daniel Gruno / Rich]

## Description:
 Apache STeVe is Apache's Python based voting system that the
 Foundation uses to handle things like voting in our new Board of
 Directors.

## Issues:
There are no issues requiring board attention yet.

## Activity:
 No activity in this period, which was anticipated (STeVe is a project
 that generally only has activity around March, April, May)

## Health report:
 Two additional people have chosen to resign from STeVe, leaving the
 PMC at 5 members currently. This is not a great situation to be in,
 and we will be pushing for some more contributors once we get closer
 to the annual members meeting. There are still >3 active PMC members

## PMC changes:

- Currently 5 PMC members.
- No new PMC members added in the last 3 months
- Last PMC addition was Rich Bowen on Mon Apr 20 2015
- Sean Kelly chose to resign from the PMC on November 1st, 2016.

## Committer base changes:

- Currently 8 committers.
- No new committers added in the last 3 months
- Last committer addition was Pierre Smits at Tue Dec 15 2015

## Releases:

- No official releases yet, although the codebase is considered stable.
  We might consider pushing a release soon (TBD).

## Mailing list activity:

- Pretty low activity, expected to go up in the coming months as we get
  closer to the annual meeting.

19 Oct 2016 [Daniel Gruno / Marvin]

## Description:
 - Apache STeVe is Apache's Python based voting system that the
   Foundation uses to handle things like voting in our new Board of
   Directors.

## Issues:
 - There are no issues requiring board attention at this time

## Activity:
 - No activity of note this period, which is to be expected.
   STeVe is generally only active around the annual meeting.
   We expect acvitity to pick up again around February/March.

## Health report:
 - As STeVe is a "seasonal project", it is expected that activity is
   nonexistent in this reporting period.
 - Greg Stein has chosen to leave the STeVe PMC. We thank Greg for his
   work - I'd personally like to thank him for his many code reviews
   over the years.
 - Still have 3+ PMC members that are alive and well, though we could
   consider appointing more PMC members at this point.

## PMC changes:

 - Currently 6 PMC members.
 - No new PMC members added in the last 3 months
 - Last PMC addition was Rich Bowen on Mon Apr 20 2015
 - Greg Stein left the PMC on October 5th 2016.

## Committer base changes:

 - Currently 9 committers.
 - No new committers added in the last 3 months
 - Last committer addition was Pierre Smits at Tue Dec 15 2015

## Releases:

 - No official releases yet, though the software is being used in
   production.

20 Jul 2016 [Daniel Gruno / Chris]

## Description:
 Apache STeVe is Apache's Python based voting system that the Foundation
 uses to handle things like voting in our new Board of Directors.

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

## Activity:
 STeVe is currently in a sort of hiatus. We have >= 3 PMC members awake,
 but development has been stalled due to lack of spare cycles to devote
 on the project. As we get closer to next ASF Members Meeting, we expect
 development to pick up the pace again. If not, we'll be sure to notify
 the board, but we are not expecting this to become a problem. We are
 not aware of any outstanding vulnerabilities or anything critical in
 the software.

## PMC changes:

 - Currently 7 PMC members.
 - No new PMC members added in the last 3 months
 - Last PMC addition was Rich Bowen on Mon Apr 20 2015

## Committer base changes:

 - Currently 9 committers.
 - No new committers added in the last 3 months
 - Last committer addition was Pierre Smits at Tue Dec 15 2015

## Releases:

 - No releases yet.

## Mailing list activity:

   Mailing list activity seems tied to the members meeting, going
   up when we get close to a new meeting, and then dying out afterwards.

20 Apr 2016 [Daniel Gruno / Shane]

## Description:
Apache STeVe is Apache's Python based voting system that the Foundation uses
to handle things like voting in our new Board of Directors.

## Issues:
There are no issues requiring board attention at this time

## Activity:
- Test elections were held in preparation for the annual ASF Members Meeting.
  Feedback from these tests (including some UI and form data parsing bugs)
  were incorporated into the STeVe software.
- The Annual ASF Members Meeting was held and used STeVe as the voting
  platform. On the whole, things went very smooth, with only very few nits.
  Issues such as screen reader friendliness has been taken into consideration
  for future development.
- Several issues were raised about some design decisions in STeVe, and while
  not serious or bad (merely opinions on how it should operate), we do need to
  discuss these characteristics and see if we can provide either a changed
  backend design or alternately optional features for STeVe.

## Health report:
- STeVe is healthy in the sense that we have >= 3 PMC members active at all
  times. We have also seen an uptick in both tickets being filed as well as
  people volunteering to help out with further development of STeVe. It is my
  sincere hope that these volunteers will stick with us and won't be drive-by
  patch submitters.

## PMC changes:

- Currently 7 PMC members.
- No new PMC members added in the last 3 months
- Last PMC addition was Rich Bowen on Mon Apr 20 2015
- Chris Mattman has chosen to resign from the STeVe PMC.
  We thank Chris for his contributions and would of course welcome him back,
  should he wish to rejoin.

## Committer base changes:

- Currently 9 committers.
- No new committers added in the last 3 months
- Last committer addition was Pierre Smits at Tue Dec 15 2015

## Releases:

- While no releases have been made yet, STeVe has been used for
  several elections. We are hoping to get a release out once the
  dust from the last members meeting settles and the kinks have
  been ironed out.

## Mailing list activity:

Activity has been relatively low. There was an uptick in mails to the issues@
list due to JIRA tickets being created as a result of users' experience with
the ASF members meeting. User@ has seen virtually no activity, but that is to
be expected when we don't have an official release yet.

- dev@steve.apache.org:
   - 20 subscribers (up 0 in the last 3 months):
   - 19 emails sent to list (47 in previous quarter)

- issues@steve.apache.org:
   - 12 subscribers (up 0 in the last 3 months):
   - 34 emails sent to list (14 in previous quarter)

- user@steve.apache.org:
   - 13 subscribers (up 0 in the last 3 months):
   - 2 emails sent to list (1 in previous quarter)


## JIRA activity:
 JIRA has seen an uptick in issues after the ASF members meeting.
 This is generally a very good sign that people are getting involved.

- 14 JIRA tickets created in the last 3 months
- 4 JIRA tickets closed/resolved in the last 3 months

20 Jan 2016 [Daniel Gruno / Shane]

## Description:
Apache STeVe is Apache's Python based voting system that the Foundation uses
to handle things like voting in our new Board of Directors.

## Issues:
- There are no issues requiring much board attention at this time. As stated
 below, we are in a state of trying to find our footing, but at present,
 it is not something that the board need to concern themselves with,
 unless they wish to help out in a personal capacity.

## Activity:
This quarter has been one of some soul searching within the PMC, kicked off by
a thread by the former VP asking whether it would make sense to disband the
PMC and merge the project with the Whimsy PMC. While this did not gain enough
traction to make it to any formal vote or the likes, it did shine some light
on the difficulties of 'seasonal projects' like STeVe, where the community can
seem quite dead for large periods of time. There were some follow-ups asking
for more participation, and we did manage to vote in a new committer to help
with the project.

## Health report:
While the project can be considered as being in hiatus between annual member
meetings, the above mentioned call for a new committer did manage to garner
votes from 5 PMC members, proving that we still have the 3x+1 needed to have
an active PMC. We continue to monitor the state of the community as we
approach the usual busy period around March/April.

On a more personal note, I will likely be reaching out to the ASF membership
and seek people to help us test and improve the pySTeVe branch of our project.
It is my belief that getting a release out at some point will help our
visibility and grow our community, but we are in need of people to test and
report back with their findings.

Compared to previous quarter, the email flow picked up relatively well, albeit
still not much.

## PMC changes:

- Currently 8 PMC members.
- No new PMC members added in the last 3 months
- Last PMC addition was Rich Bowen on Mon Apr 20 2015

## Committer base changes:

- Currently 9 committers.
- Pierre Smits was added as a committer on Tue Dec 15 2015

Change the Apache STeVe Project Chair

 WHEREAS, the Board of Directors heretofore appointed Jim Jagielski
 to the office of Vice President, Apache STeVe, and

 WHEREAS, the Board of Directors is in receipt of the resignation of
 Jim Jagielski from the office of Vice President, Apache STeVe, and

 WHEREAS, the Project Management Committee of the Apache STeVe project
 has chosen to recommend Daniel Gruno as the successor to the
 post;

 NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that Jim Jagielski is relieved and
 discharged from the duties and responsibilities of the office of Vice
 President, Apache STeVe, and

 BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that Daniel Gruno be and hereby is
 appointed to the office of Vice President, Apache STeVe, to serve in
 accordance with and subject to the direction of the Board of Directors.
 and the Bylaws of the Foundation until death, resignation, retirement,
 removal or disqualification, or until a successor is appointed.

 Special Order 7B, Change the Apache STeVe Project Chair, was
 approved by Unanimous Vote of the directors present.

21 Oct 2015 [Jim Jagielski]

## Description:
   STeVe is a system for managing a plethora of vote mechanisms, most notably
   the STV (Single Transferable Vote) method used in the ASF board elections.

## Issues:
 - there are no issues requiring board attention at this time

## Activity:
 - Minor work on pySTeVe has been done, but the bulk of the program is, for the
   time being, considered stable, and so development has slowed down.
 - Suggestions to run some mock elections with ASF committers trying out the new
   system has been proposed, but not yet carried out.
 - We are discussing when/if/how to release the pySTeVe component.
 - Jim Jagielski has decided to step down as VP, and proposed Daniel Gruno to
   replace him in this role (see special order 7B). The PMC extends its thanks
   to Jim for the work he's done as VP.

## Health report:
 - The community remains healthy, albeit in a sort of hiatus state. This is
   likely due to ASF elections being about half a year away.
 - PMC remains alive and responsive when needed.

## PMC changes:

 - Currently 8 PMC members.
 - No new PMC members added in the last 3 months
 - Last PMC addition was Rich Bowen at Mon Apr 20 2015

## LDAP changes:

 - Currently 8 committers and 8 committee group members.
 - No new committee group members added in the last 3 months
 - Last committee group addition was Richard Bowen at Mon Apr 20 2015
 - No new committers added in the last 3 months
 - Last committer addition was Richard Bowen at Mon Apr 20 2015

   Note:
   This month's report was drafted by Daniel Gruno and approved by
   Jim Jagielski.

Description:
   STeVe is a system for managing a plethora of vote mechanisms, most notably
   the STV (Single Transferable Vote) method used in the ASF board elections.

Activity:
 After a successful annual members meeting, many new ideas came up and were
 discussed in the project. A new branch, called pySTeVe, was created with the
 purpose of providing a unified web UI for setting up, voting and tallying
 votes/issues with a modular architecture that allows numerous new ways of
 voting. Of particular note is that pySTeVe is Python based, rather than
 Perl. No official release has been made yet, but we are confident that
 this will happen before the next annual meeting.

 An online demo VM has been set up at https://vote-wip.apache.org/, which can
 be used by Apache projects to both test pySTeVe and hold online votes on
 issues. With infra's support, this VM is scheduled to host the next annual
 members votes as well.

Health report:
 The project is currently in a summer holiday hiatus, but has seen a great
 influx in code, committers and discussion since the annual meeting. We are
 confident that there is sufficient oversight in the PMC.

Issues:
 There are no issues requiring board attention at this time

LDAP committee group/Committership changes:

 - Currently 8 committers and 8 LDAP committee group members.
 - No new LDAP committee group members added in the last 3 months
 - Last LDAP committee group addition was Richard Bowen at Mon Apr 20 2015

* Summary

No board-level issues at this time.

The project was established just a few weeks ago, and is currently
bootstrapping itself into existence. Version control, mailing lists,
and the wiki have been set up. See [1] for more details.

The project is currently reviewing issue tracker options, and its
options for preserving development history of the formerly-private
voter tools code. Greg Stein is producing an initial SVN dump as part
of this effort [2].
