DESCRIPTION

Apache Shindig is an Opensocial Reference implementation in wide use by both
social networks and enterprise software. Shindig graduated from the Incubator
in January 2010.

ISSUES

The Shindig PMC has no issues that require board attention.

COMMUNITY

The Shindig community has saw a noticeable decline in mailing list activity as
well as contributions to the code base over the past few months.  Some of this
might have to do with the OpenSocial Foundation being dissolved and portions
of the OpenSocial specification being taken over by the W3C
(http://www.w3.org/2014/12/opensocial.html.en).  The Shindig community has not
seen any contributions due to specification changes coming from the W3C since
the move has taken place. This quarter we have seen a couple (2-3) fixes from
a single community member.

COMMITTER/PMC CHANGES

No PMC member changes.

RELEASES

Apache Shindig 2.5.2 was released the 2014-10-26.  The community is currently

Incubator in January 2010.

The Shindig PMC has no issues that require board attention.

COMMUNITY

The project continues to enjoy broad contributions with an active
community and mailing list.

As a community we decided to renumber our releases.  We have abandoned
the 3.0.0 beta series and re-released as 2.5.0 beta series.  This puts the
major version of shindig in alignment with the OpenSocial spec that it
implements (similar to the way Tomcat aligns with servlet specifications)

For 2.5.0-beta1 we also had assistance in cleaning up our NOTICE
and LICENSE files to be in better conformance.

There has been some work on converting http://shindig.apache.org to use
Apache CMS.

Apache Shindig is an OpenSocial container and helps you to start
hosting OpenSocial apps quickly by providing the code to render
gadgets, proxy requests, and handle REST and RPC requests. Apache
Shindig entered the incubator 2007-12-03.

The following tasks have been completed since the last reporting period.

 * Multiple licensing issues have been cleaned up and we have
successful RAT tests in place.
 * Successful release of shindig 1.1-BETA5 on 11/24/2009, we now
have multiple committers that can cut releases.
 * Approval of two new committers.
 * Created distribution area with KEYS and our 1.0.0 and 1.1-BETA5 releases.
 * Updated Website

The following items are planned for the next reporting period:

 * Start graduation process.
 * Official 1.1 release.

23 Sep 2009

Shindig is a reference implementation of the OpenSocial and gadgets stack.
The active community has built two parallel implementations of the
OpenSocial and gadgets spec; one in Java and one in PHP.

Incubating since: 2007-12-06

High-level status summary during last quarter:

* stable release compliant to OpenSocial v0.9 currently being reviewed by
PMC
* updates for OpenSocial v0.9 are implemented and in production on several
sites that support OpenSocial
* two new committers joined the community. The committer base on the Java
side is relatively varied. However, until now we have had a single committer
working on the PHP implementation. This changed with the addition of two new
committers focussing on PHP. The lack of committer count (and thus
diversity) on PHP was a graduation issue. The addition of these two
committers certainly moves the project in the right direction regarding
graduation.

Requirements for graduation:
* Discussion about graduation is ongoing. The most pressing need that was
identified was to diversify our committer base for PHP. In many other ways,
the project and community are in very good shape.

17 Jun 2009

Shindig is a reference implementation of the !OpenSocial and gadgets stack.
The active community has built two parallel implementations of the

   end of year)
