SocialSite

20 Oct 2010

Officially dormant.  Will no longer report.

There has been no activity in the SocialSite community and no progress in
getting Oracle to come through on Sun's unwritten commitment to donate the
Project SocialSite codebase to Apache. There's still a chance that Oracle
will come through so perhaps this podling should be put into some sort of
mothballed state if there is such a thing or terminated if there is not.

SocialSite has been incubating since May 2009.

SocialSite has been stalled for quite a long time, but it appears that there
is some new movement at Sun/Oracle. There are some details here:
http://rollerweblogger.org/roller/entry/oracles_social_site_promise. If
there is no movement by the next report, we should consider mothballing this
project.

Three most important issues to address for graduation:
1. Get source code grant from Sun, import to SVN.
2. Migrate codebase: repackage, work out bad deps, etc.
3. Learn Apache way: demonstrate that we have a community

SocialSite is an open source Social Networking Service based on Apache
Shindig (incubating). The software is not simply a "canned" Social Network
or Facebook-in-a-box type of web application; it's something different.
SocialSite is designed to add social networking features to existing web
applications and web sites. SocialSite is made up of two parts: a social
data server that supports the OpenSocial APIs and extensions and a set of
OpenSocial gadgets that provide a complete user-interface for social
networking.

SocialSite is in the process of entering the incubator. Status page and SVN
space have been created but no user accounts. Committers have sent in ICLAs
but we're still waiting on Sun to deliver the code grant. During the last
month, out contacts within Sun have finally gotten permission to donate the
code to Socialsite -- so we are hopeful that we'll have code in SVN soon

SocialSite is a social networking server and a set of gadgets that make it
possible to add social networking features to existing web sites. The server
is based on Apache Shindig, written in Java and adds a complete persistent
social graph (stored via JPA). SocialSite's user interface is an Admin
Console and a set of OpenSocial Gadgets that provide a complete social
networking interface.

The project has been incubating since April 30, 2009. The SVN space, mailing
lists and initial user accounts have been created but we are still waiting
for Sun to sign-off on the code grant. It's been about six months since Sun
told us this would happen, we've been checking in with Sun every couple of
weeks and apparently we're getting close.
