SensSoft

17 Apr 2019

Apache SensSoft is a generalized user behavioral logging platform for web
pages and thin-client applications

Apache SensSoft has been incubating since 2016-07-13.

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

 1. Grow the Apache SensSoft (Incubating) Committer/Community Base.
 2. Complete our Podling name change
 3. Complete the issues highlighted at the SensSoft Roadmap [1]

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

 * We have completed our PODLINGNAMESEARCH workflow and our new name Apache
 Flagon has been approved by VP of marketing [2].

 * We have posted tickets to change the name of our core assets (JIRA,
 Website, GitBox Repos) [3], to coincide with changing website text, other
 content-based references to Apache SensSoft.

 * We are preparing for additional releases, immediately following our full
 transition to the Apache Flagon Namesake (UserALE.js v. 2.0.0, 2.1.0; poss.
 Flagon 1.0.0).

How has the community developed since the last report?

 * The community has been:
 - discussing reaching out to other open source projects to identify other
 potential communities (analytical technologies) to drive developments, as
 well as increase interest in the Podling.
 - discussing research applications with university research labs in
 machine learning and social computing.
 - discussing adoption of the technology with interested entities and
 identifying/eliminating barriers to adoption.
 - updating documentation on wiki and READMEs to improve community growth

How has the project developed since the last report?

 * Project maturity roadmaps (Wiki) and version release plans (JIRA)
 continue to be maintained.
 * JIRA boards continue to be maintained
 * Core products have been maintained for modernization and for security
 posture.
 * New features have been added to enhance adoption and make Apache SensSoft
 competitive with open-source business analytics services (e.g., OWA).

How would you assess the podling's maturity?
Please feel free to add your own commentary.

 * Despite challenges posed by dispersion of the original committers, the
 project is finding its footing again and continues to be desirable for
 consumption and relevant amidst alternatives. The impending name change is
 an opportunity for rebranding and acceleration of community growth.

    Comments: Hopefully this report has been submitted just in time for
    the deadline.
    The SensSoft Podling is coping well under pressing conditions with an
    ongoing activity which seeks to essentially rebrand the podling. Once
    we find a new identity,
    I will be working to drive the SensSoft towards graduation. I have
    also expressed my desire to onboard one other mentor. Hopefully the
    IPMC has the capacity to rise to that request.

SensSoft is a software tool usability testing platform

SensSoft has been incubating since 2016-07-13.

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

 1. Extending release process to other parts of the SensSoft software stack.
 2. Grow the Apache SensSoft (Incubating) Committer/Community Base.
 3. Complete the issues highlighted at the SensSoft Roadmap
 https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/SENSSOFT/Roadmaps

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

 Yes. In the last Quarter, a number of core Apache SensSoft committers
 changed organization. While the Apache SensSoft team will use this as an
 opportunity to organically grow the committer/community based, these
 departures have caused branding concerns for the organization that
 initiated the Apache SensSoft software gift to Apache—The Charles Stark
 Draper Laboratory, Inc. (Draper). Specifically, in referencing an
 affiliation with the ‘Apache SensSoft’ project at different organizations,
 an Apache SensSoft committer received the following request from Draper:
 “We flagged your signature for review by Draper legal since SENSOFTtm and
 Software as a Sensor (R) are Draper-owned trademarks. As you know, the main
 purpose of trademarks is to avoid customer confusion. We believe that the
 use of SENSOFT or SOFTWARE AS A SENSOR in [another company’s] employee
 signature block may lead to confusion as to the source and owner of the
 SENSOFT product. While we appreciate your acknowledgement that Draper owns
 SOFTWARE AS A SENSOR and SENSOFT technology, and the good will behind your
 intentions to promote technology you worked on while at Draper, in order to
 preserve the Draper trademarks we respectfully request that you either:
 -Remove any reference of SENSOFT or SOFTWARE AS A SENSOR from your BAE
 signature block;  OR  -Indicate in the signature directly following SENSOFT
 the following: “SENSOFTtm and SOFTWARE AS A SENSOR are trademarks owned by
 the Charles Stark Draper Laboratory, Inc.”  NOTE: SENSOFT refers to
 SENSSOFT (SENSOFT is a misspelling)  The committer in question has
 corresponded Draper and raised the issue that ‘Apache SensSoft’ refers to a
 public open source project, where ‘Software as a Sensor’ and ‘SENSSOFT’
 refer to Draper proprietary technology, as well as citing the terms of the
 Software Gift. Draper is steadfast in asserting rights now that committers
 formerly at Draper are now at other employers.  While this affects the
 Apache SensSoft community’s ability to grow through outreach and publicity,
 we do not believe we require Legal assistance from the ASF. Rather, in
 discussion with both Draper and Apache SensSoft PPMC/Champions, the path of
 least resistance appears to be to change the Apache SensSoft project name.
 The PPMC will initiate a vote on @dev for changing the name. If it passes,
 a subsequent vote will determine the projects new name. In the meantime,
 committers will begin removing references to Software as a Sensor(tm) from
 project documentation.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 Several community members have started new employment opening opportunities
 for community growth in the last quarter. No new community members have
 come onboard.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 Development continues at a sustainable level. Several major improvements
 have been made to make the Apache SensSoft stack deployable at various
 levels of scale, including major improvements to documentation and
 examples, and testing procedures. Project maturity roadmaps (Wiki) and
 version release plans (JIRA) continue to be maintained.

    Comments: There are several issues identified above which, as would be
    expected, have somewhat stunted sustained growth. SensSoft is still
    however on track to graduation with motivation for graduation still
    present. The above report was produced by a PPMC member this time
    around, NOT the mentoring team.

IPMC/Shepherd notes:
 Dave Fisher - I've pointed the podling to the suitable name search and
 reminded them that they need to look into more than the name
 of the project. They need to check their product names like UserAle,
 TAP, Distill and Stout.

SensSoft at a number of Human/Computer + UI/UX Events so we hope this will
change.

How has the project developed since the last report?

The project has seen loads of activity on Jira and the mailing list. All code
has been licensed under ALv2.0 with NOTICE's, DISCLAIMER's, etc now being
committed across the SensSoft software suite. Jira is very busy. We are
utilizing builds.apache.org for all projects builds... this is part of the aim
to move towards CI for the SensSoft stack.

How has the community developed since the last report?

  1. Community members have been working with DoD and Industry partners to
     bring them on as contributors to the project (ex. Other industry leaders
     in HCI/UX offerings for DoD have begun offering SensSoft products as
     part of their technical offerings).
  2. The community has established a Twitter feed (@ApacheSensSoft) and are
     growing our community by following others (e.g., Kitware, etc.)
  3. Community members from Draper Labs have made arrangements to present at
     uie21 and the emetrics summit as exhibitors to capture community
     followers in the UI/UX and business analytics communities.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  1. The transition to Apache Infrastructure is complete!!!
  2. We have moved over all our development tickets into Apache Jira. All
     development is now taking place @Apache which is great.
  3. We are working on new patches and version releases for TAP, UserAle.js,
     Distill products (sub projects under SENSSOFT), which will now be
     visible through commits.

SensSoft is a software tool usability testing platform

SensSoft has been incubating since 2016-07-13.

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

 1. Ensure that Software grant/CCLA are submitted to secretary@
 2. Port all infrastructure and community over to the ASF Incubator
    infrastructure.
 3. Grow the Senssoft community and work towards incubating releases.
