SeaTunnel

17 Jan 2024 [Jun Gao / Shane]

## Description:
The mission of Apache SeaTunnel is the creation and maintenance of software
related to a very easy-to-use ultra-high-performance distributed data
integration platform that supports real-time synchronization of massive data

## Project Status:
Current project status: Ongoing
Issues for the board: None.

## Membership Data:
Apache SeaTunnel was founded 2023-05-17 (8 months ago)
There are currently 30 committers and 20 PMC members in this project.
The Committer-to-PMC ratio is 3:2.

Community changes, past quarter:
- Li Liu was added to the PMC on 2023-10-26

## Project Activity:
We released seatunnel-web 1.0.0 on 2023-10-17.
We are ready to release seatunnel version 2.3.4.
Cloud-native Big-Data Meetup in China Hefei.


## Community Health:

In terms of data, community discussions and commitments are down significantly
compared to last quarter. This is because the connector architecture is being
refactored. We have created a todo list of all connector modifications based
on the new architecture, but we still need time to promote them and get more
contributions involved.

## Community Health:
As in July, the project is undergoing significant architecture upgrades, and
the new connector PR is being carefully merged to prevent them from becoming
outdated as soon as they are merged.I believe that the situation will improve
in the next quarter.

## Project Activity:
7.27 Community Meetup:Web demonstration, PMC dialogue benchmarking users
7.29 AWS Cloud Native Conference Chen Zhuoyu preached for SeaTunnel

## Community Health:
Community contributors are slowly growing, 55 code contributors in the past
quarter (5% increase). The core RoadMap of the community has shifted from
hoping to grow connectors as quickly as possible to completing the overall
architecture and optimizing the quality of existing connectors. Therefore, the
number of code contributions is decreasing, which is in line with
expectations. At present, the 2.3.x version has gradually stabilized, and we
need more users to use and provide feedback on the problems they encountered
during use, which will be reflected through issues. In the next stage, the
community will focus more attention on handling issues.

## Project Activity:
[
1.SeaTunnel will soon have its own web system. I see that the community is
quickly completing it and preparing to release the version.
2.The Sink side automatic table creation feature has already been submitted by
contributors, which will be a very important feature. The community will
increase the promotion of this feature and hope that more users can use it.]

## Community Health:
[ dev@seatunnel.apache.org had a 28% decrease in traffic in the past quarter
 (67 emails compared to 92) users@seatunnel.apache.org had a 533% increase in
 traffic in the past quarter (19 emails compared to 3) 258 commits in the
 past quarter (-44% change) At present, the community has found some issues
 with the current architecture design, which have led to some features that
 cannot be effectively implemented, such as DDL changes and Sink automatic
 table creation. In order to improve the scalability of the architecture, we
 have reduced the merging of connector related PR and focused our efforts on
 architecture optimization. Now, more connectors mean greater repair workload
 after architecture optimization is completed. This situation will soon
 improve. In addition, the community has invested a lot of effort in
 SeaTunnel Web, which will be another very important feature of SeaTunnel.
