Sqoop

19 Apr 2017 [Jarek Jarcec Cecho / Jim]

Report was filed, but display is awaiting the approval of the Board minutes.

27 Feb 2017 [Jarek Jarcec Cecho / Marvin]

## Description:

Apache Sqoop is a tool designed for efficiently transferring bulk data
between Apache Hadoop and structured datastores such as relational
databases. It can be used to import data from external structured
datastores into Hadoop Distributed File System or related systems like
Hive and HBase. Conversely, Sqoop can be used to extract data from
Hadoop and export it to external structured datastores such as relational
databases and enterprise data warehouses.

## Issues:

There are no issues requiring board attention at this time.

## Activity:

Development activity continues to be primarily on sqoop2 branch, but there are
still bugfixes on trunk branch as well.

## Health report:

Community is healthy, we see a new contributors showing up and contributing to
the project.

## PMC changes:

- Currently 16 PMC members.
- We’ve added new PMC member (Abraham Fine) in November 2016

## Committer base changes:

- Currently 28 committers.
- Attila Szabo was added as a committer on Sun Aug 14 2016

## Releases:

DESCRIPTION

Apache Sqoop is a tool designed for efficiently transferring bulk data
between Apache Hadoop and structured datastores such as relational databases.
It can be used to import data from external structured datastores into Hadoop
Distributed File System or related systems like Hive and HBase. Conversely,
Sqoop can be used to extract data from Hadoop and export it to external
structured datastores such as relational databases and enterprise data
warehouses.

RELEASES
* The last release of Apache Sqoop was version 1.4.2, released on
 August 24, 2012.
* No new releases are planned currently for the project.

CURRENT ACTIVITY

21 Mar 2012

A tool for efficiently transferring bulk data between Apache Hadoop and
structured datastores such as relational databases.

Sqoop was accepted into Apache Incubator on June 11, 2011. Status information
is available at http://incubator.apache.org/projects/sqoop.html.

Progress since last report:

 - Sqoop PPMC voted in Kathleen Ting as a new committer.
 - Sqoop PPMC voted in Jarek Jarcec Checho (Jarsolav Cecho) as PPMC member.
 - Released Sqoop version 1.4.1-incubating, with support for Apache Hadoop
   versions 0.20, 0.23 and 1.0.
 - Sqoop started its graduation process on February 19th, 2012.

Progress on graduation:

 - Community Vote: PASSED. Vote (1), Result (2)
 - Incubator PMC Vote: PASSED. Vote (3), Result (4)
 - During IPMC vote a concern was raised that Sqoop contains deprecated
   Java source in com.cloudera.sqoop namespace which need be removed
   before graduation.
 - Sqoop dev expressed that this code was:
   - Marked deprecated and retained solely for backward compatibility.
   - That there was a concrete plan to completely remove it by next major
     revision, work for which had already started.
   - That it was not motivated by Cloudera's corporate interests.
 - The Incubator PMC and Sqoop community reached consensus that:
   - Sqoop was within its right to retain Java source code in
     com.cloudera.sqoop namespace to provide backwards compatibility.
   - And, that it was for the benefit of Sqoop community.
   - And, that there is no such policy in ASF that Incubator can enforce
     on any Incubating projects.
   - And, that if anyone feels that this should be a policy, they must
     establish it via the proper channel of providing the problem statement,
     impact of the problem, and solution to the board for consideration.
 - The draft board resolution that was voted on by IPMC has been submitted
   to the board for consideration in its next meeting scheduled for
   March 21, 2012.
