Serf

27 Feb 2017 [Bert Huijben / Brett]

## Description:
 The serf library is a high performance C-based HTTP client library
 built upon the Apache Portable Runtime (APR) library. Serf is the
 default client library of Apache Subversion, Apache OpenOffice and
 mod_pagespeed.

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

## Activity:
 Some feature development happened over the last quarter, and there
 was some work going on around improving support for the different
 SSL libraries forked from OpenSSL that differ in how they announce
 new features.

## Health report:
 Activity is at a normal, fairly quiet level.

 The serf project's activity is quite related to that of Subversion
 and with that projects recent affairs we slowed more than expected.

## PMC & Committer changes:
 Currently 11 PMC members and 12 committers. Our last new committer was
 added on Wed Sep 02 2015.

## Releases:
 Apache Serf 1.3.9 was released on Thu Sep 01 2016

## Mailing list and Jira activity:
 Normal slow activity.

 built upon the Apache Portable Runtime (APR) library. Serf is the
 default client library of Apache Subversion and Apache OpenOffice.

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

## Activity:
 We released Apache Serf 1.3.9 after testing the release process and
 scripting on a private release. It was good to see some outside
 suggestions on how to improve our release process and especially
 how we should announce releases within the Apache foundation.

## Health report:
 Activity is at a normal, fairly quiet level.

 and with that projects recent affairs we slowed more than expected.

## Releases:
 Apache Serf 1.3.9 was released on Thu Sep 01 2016

 trunk (1.4.x): Still stabilizing towards a new release. Slow ongoing
 development.

## Mailing list and Jira activity:
 Normal activity. A bit more activity around the release of 1.3.9.

## Description:
 The serf library is a high performance C-based HTTP client library
 built upon the Apache Portable Runtime (APR) library. Serf is the
 default client library of Apache Subversion and Apache OpenOffice.

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

## Activity:
 The project had another three very quiet months. Some time was
 spent on testing the recently added features, and looking at some user
 reported issues around OpenSSL and Kerberos.

## Health report:
 Activity is at a normal, fairly quiet level.

 The serf project's activity is quite related to that of Subversion
 and with that projects recent affairs we slowed more than expected.

## PMC & Committer changes:
 Currently 11 PMC members and 12 committers. Our last new committer was
 added on Wed Sep 02 2015.

## Releases:
 No ASF releases yet. Last pre-ASF release 2014-10-20. We are trying to
 get both the 1.3.x stable branch and trunk back in a fully releasable
 state.

 1.3.x: This branch was released pre-ASF and making it a full ASF
 release is a bit destabilizing for a release branch, and by that needs
 more review than any previous release. I hope that the delay on 1.4
 (=trunk), will make us release a new 1.3.x within the next few weeks.
 Branko has some OpenSSL work in progress for better OS/X build support

 trunk (1.4.x): This branch had quite a bit of new development before
 switching to the ASF and then later on when we added full HTTP/2 support.
 This code needed some time for testing, which it now had. I think we
 need to review which parts need to be visible in the public api and
 which not. Generating proper doxygen docs from this branch would be
 nice, but I think we should do the comment fixups for that before
 branching.

## Mailing list and Jira activity:
 Normal activity.

 should improve the api-user targeted documentation.

 default client library of Apache Subversion and Apache OpenOffice.

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

## Activity:
 The project got back to its normal activity level after the
 migration and adding a few new features. Focus was more on the new
 features (E.g. HTTP/2) and improving the build on more platforms
 than on getting a new release out.

## Health report:
 Activity returned to a normal level. After months of waiting google-
 code finally shows that we have migrated on the old homepage.

## Description:
   The serf library is a high performance C-based HTTP client library built
   upon the Apache Portable Runtime (APR) library. Serf is the default
   client library of Apache Subversion and Apache OpenOffice.

## Activity:
   We have been busy moving the project to the ASF infrastructure. The
   website, mailinglists, Subversion, Jira, etc. are all migrated. With
   some help of some Subversion developers we now have a few buildbots
   configured to help with release testing. With all this done, we are
   now trying to get serf 1.4.0 released as the first ASF release.

## Health report:
   The last few weeks we had an above average average activity as
   everybody was trying to get everything moved onto the ASF
   infrastructure after the googlecode site was made read-only.
   I hope we can continue at this pace to get 1.4.0 released soon.

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