Storm

21 Jun 2017 [P. Taylor Goetz / Phil]

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

15 Mar 2017 [P. Taylor Goetz / Chris]

## Description:
 - Apache Storm is a distributed real-time computation system.


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

## Activity:
 - The community continues to advance toward a 1.1.0 release. That release
   has been delayed due to a number of necessary bug fixes and packaging
   changes aimed at reducing the file size of the distribution. We expect
   the packaging changes to be completed soon and followed by a release.
 - Discussions regarding a roadmap for the 2.0 release are beginning and are
   expected to pick up once the 1.1.0 release is out.
 - Developer interest in the Apache Beam runner for Storm seems to have
   waned a bit. There is interest in a Storm runner from the Beam community,
   so we may persue moving that effort to the Beam community similar to how
   the Flink and Apex runners were developed.
 - There are a number of presentations covering Storm at the upcoming
   Hadoop/DataWorks Summit Munich in April.

## Health report:
 - Overall the project continues to be healthy and we are seeing new
  faces show up and contribute.
 - Activity on the dev@ list has picked up as the community works toward the
   1.1.0 release.

## PMC changes:

 - Currently 33 PMC members.
 - Hugo da Cruz Louro was added to the PMC on Thu Mar 9 2016

## Committer base changes:

 - Currently 34 committers.
 - Hugo da Cruz Louro was added as a committer on Fri Feb 24 2017

## Releases:

 - 1.0.3 was released on Tue Feb 14 2017

21 Dec 2016 [P. Taylor Goetz / Chris]

## Description:
 - Apache Storm is a distributed real-time computation system.

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

## Activity:
 - Progress continues toward making a 1.1.0 release.
 - Migration of Clojure code to Java is nearing completion.
 - A significant amount of progress has been made on Storm's SQL
   interface that leverages Apache Calcite.
 - An effort is underway to implement an improved API for collecting
   and reporting system level and user-defined metricts.
 - An effort is underway to implement an Apache Beam runner on top of
   Storm.

## Health report:
 - Overall the project continues to be healthy and we are seeing new
   faces show up and contribute.

## PMC changes:

 - Currently 32 PMC members.
 - Xin Wang was added to the PMC on Mon Nov 28 2016

## Committer base changes:

 - Currently 33 committers.
 - Xin Wang was added as a committer on Tue Nov 29 2016

## Releases:

 - Last release was 0.10.2 on Mon Sep 12 2016

## Mailing list activity:

 - There has been a significant drop in the number of emails to the dev@
   list. This can be attributed to moving JIRA notifications to the issues@
   list and modifying GitHub integration (GitHub activity now posts to the
   JIRA work log instead of comments to reduce the number of duplicate
   emails).

 - dev@storm.apache.org:
    - 548 subscribers (up 6 in the last 3 months):
    - 1840 emails sent to list (4816 in previous quarter)

 - issues@storm.apache.org:
    - 12 subscribers (up 1 in the last 3 months):
    - 626 emails sent to list (0 in previous quarter)

 - user@storm.apache.org:
    - 1417 subscribers (up 4 in the last 3 months):
    - 594 emails sent to list (664 in previous quarter)


## JIRA activity:

 - 148 JIRA tickets created in the last 3 months
 - 103 JIRA tickets closed/resolved in the last 3 months

21 Sep 2016 [P. Taylor Goetz / Mark]

## Description:
 - Apache Storm is a distributed real-time computation system.

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


## Activity:
 - Release cadence has increased for maintenance/bugfix releases in the
   1.0.x, 0.10.x, and 0.9.x version lines.
 - Progress continues toward making a 1.1.0 release.
 - The developer community is discussing dropping support for 0.9.x versions.
 - Activity on migrating from Clojure to Java (what we are tentatively
   calling version 2.0) has picked up.
 - There are two active VOTEs underway for accepting code donations: SQE
   (Streaming Query Engine) from JW Player, and JMS integration from P.
   Taylor Goetz.
 - We have changed our GitHub integration options so pull request activity
   is published to the JIRA work log to reduce the number of duplicate
   messages sent to the dev@ mailing list. We also now direct JIRA activity
   to issues@ so the community has finer-grained control over the messages
   they wish to receive.

## Health report:
 - There has been a slight decrease in the number of PMC members voting on
   release candidates and a corresponding increase in the amount of time it
   takes to close a release VOTE. This is possibly a side effect of the
   increased number of releases being made. The PMC will monitor the
   situation and push to add more PMC members if necessary.
 - We continue to see new developers show up and contribute. During the
   discussion around accpeting the JW Player code donation it was clear a
   number of SQE developers are eager to participate in the Storm community.

## PMC changes:

 - Currently 31 PMC members.
 - Satish Duggana was added to the PMC on Tue Aug 02 2016

## Committer base changes:

 - Currently 32 committers.
 - Satish Duggana was added as a committer on Sat Jul 30 2016

 - 1.0.2 was released on Tue Aug 09 2016
 - 0.10.2 was released on Mon Sep 12 2016

## Mailing list activity:

 - Activity on the user@ mailing list has died down after a spike attributed
   to the 1.0 and subsequent maintenance releases.
 - Activity on the dev@ list is expected to drop sharply in reponse to
   moving GitHub notifications to the JIRA work log, and moving JIRA
   notifications to issues@.

 - dev@storm.apache.org:
    - 542 subscribers (up 9 in the last 3 months):
    - 4912 emails sent to list (5793 in previous quarter)

 - issues@storm.apache.org:
    - 8 subscribers (up 8 in the last 3 months):

15 Jun 2016 [P. Taylor Goetz / Shane]

## Description:
 - Apache Storm is a distributed real-time computation system.

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

## Activity:
 - The community released verion 1.0, which was a major milestone.
 - Since the 1.0 release, we have accellerated our release rate in order to
   address bugs/issues in a timely manner.
 - Preparations for 1.0.2 and 1.1.0 releases are underway, with a release
   expected soon.
 - We had one trademark issue raised. It was addressed quickly and easily.
 - The PMC has been reminded of the importance of policing our trademark.

## Health report:

 - There has been a slight decrease in committer activity. This can likely
   be attributed to a "sigh of relief" after the 1.0 release, as well as a
   shift in priorities among some committers' day jobs.
 - We continue to regularly add new committers/PMC members at a rate of 2-3
   per quarter.

16 Dec 2015 [P. Taylor Goetz / Bertrand]

## Description:
   Apache Storm is a distributed real-time computation system.

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

## Activity:
 - The community released stable version 0.10.0 in November. This was a
   major release that added end-to-end security to Storm, among many other
   features.
 - We recently added 5 new committers/PMC members and are in the process of
   adding one more.
 - We received and processed a code donation of JStorm from Alibaba. JStorm
   is a fork of Apache Storm with the clojure code reimplemented in Java.
 - The community has adopted a plan for merging the JStorm code to the master
   branch of the Storm codebase.
 - The JStorm developers have become active in the Storm community, helping
   with such things as documenting feature differences between the two
   codebases, filing related JIRAs and discussing the migration plans on the
   mailing lists. The lead developer of JStorm (Longda Feng) has been added
   as a committer/PMC member.
 - The community is currently finishing up the final remaining tasks for the
   Apache Storm 1.0 release, which we hope to release in the next month.

## Health report:
 - JIRA activity has been relatively high for the last quarter due to
   activity related to the 1.0 release as well as planning for the JStorm
   merge.
 - There has been a significant uptick in activity on the dev@ mailing list.
   This is in part due to the addition of the JStorm developers and 1.0
   release planning, but there are also a number of new contributors that
   have begun submitting patches.
 - The 1.0 release will represent a major milestone for the project, with
   many new features and performance improvements.

 - 272 JIRA tickets closed/resolved in the last 3 months

16 Sep 2015 [P. Taylor Goetz / Sam]

## Description:
   Apache Storm is a distributed real-time computation system.

## Activity:
 - The community is currently working on finalizing version 0.10.0 and
   planning for version 0.11.0.
 - The PMC is working with Alibaba to finalize the donation of the JStorm code
   (a Java implementation of Storm's clojure code) and the corresponding IP
   clearance process.
 - The community is actively working on implementing a number of improvements
   identified in Twitter's Heron paper.
 - The community is finalizing a redesign of the Apache Storm website.

## Health report:
 - Activity on the mailing lists is steady, and Storm continues to attract new
   users and contributors.

## Issues:
   In July I asked on the board@ list [1] for advice regarding anecdotal
   evidence that members of another ASF community were claiming that Storm
   is "End of Life" (and thus a community in decline) and how best to
   respond. In that thread, a number of suggestions were made by both ASF
   directors and members, and the PMC continued the discussion on the Storm
   private@ list. The general sentiment from the board@ discussion was that
   it is the responsibility of the PMC to decide what, if any, actions to
   take, and escalate the matter only if those actions fail to produce the
   desired outcome.

   The general consensus among the Storm PMC is that no specific action is
   necessary at this point, and that any efforts by the PMC are best focused
   on improving Storm as a project and community.

   No further attention from the board is necessary.

  3. Documentation improvements

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

  None.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 We have added on additional committer and community activity in the mailing
 lists continues to grow.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 We have held a logo contest and completed the first of two rounds of
 voting.  Final logo selection will take place shortly. We have also
 established a feature branch for incorporating all the security work done
 by the engineering team at Yahoo!. Having the option for secure Storm
 deployments will play a big role in increasing enterprise adoption.

 We plan on initiating our next release next week in addition to completing
 the logo contest. Once these two tasks are complete we would like to
 consider beginning the graduation process.

Shepherd/Mentor notes:

  John Ament (johndament):

    Storm is showing a lot of progress and growth.  They have a lot of
    activity on JIRA and mailing lists, and are generally in good shape.

Storm is a distributed, fault-tolerant, and high-performance realtime
computation system that provides strong guarantees on the processing of
data.

Storm has been incubating since 2013-09-18.

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

 1. Growing the community and adding Committers/PPMC Members
 2. Release on a regular basis
 3. Lower the user/developer entry barrier by improving documentation,
   examples, and integration options.

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

 None.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 We have voted in 2 additional Committers/PPMC Members. Since our first
 Apache release, community and committer involvement has increased and we
 hope to continue that trend.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 We successfully executed our first Apache release. We have migrated the
 storm-project.net website and github wiki to the podling website. To
 support our initial and subsequent releases, we also migrated the Storm
 build system from Leiningen to Apache Maven.

Storm is a distributed, fault-tolerant, and high-performance realtime
computation system that provides strong guarantees on the processing of
data.

Storm has been incubating since 2013-09-18.

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

 1. Licensing and IP clearance.
 2. First Apache release.
 3. Growing the community.

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

 Storm has a number of dependencies that are forked/modified versions
 of other projects (including Apache Thrift). We have started a discussion
 on the dev mailing list regarding the best way to resolve these issues.
 As we have yet to do our first Apache release, we will be looking for
 additional guidance from our mentors in reaching that goal.


How has the community developed since the last report?

 We continue to see interest/involvement from contributors in the
 form of github pull requests.


How has the project developed since the last report?

 We have released Storm 0.9.0 from the non-Apache github process.
 This will be the last non-Apache release. Our next focus will
 be to work on our first Apache release and migrating to the Apache
 Way.


Date of last release:

 N/A

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

Shepherd notes:

 Raphael Bircher (rbircher)

   Storm has started three months ago. It is quite active and looks ok,
   so far. They created a last release outside Apache and they work now
   at the IP. I noticed that http://incubator.apache.org/storm/ still
   not exist. If you search at Google for storm, you only find the
   GitHub page. I find a minimal site on the Apache server important.
   so people can easely find ML and co.

Storm is a distributed, fault-tolerant, and high-performance realtime
computation system that provides strong guarantees on the processing of
data.

Storm has been incubating since 2013-09-18.

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

 1. Release Storm 0.9.0 with the current github process (the next release,
    0.9.1 will be under the Apache process -- we have promised our
    community a 0.9.0 release prior to moving to the Apache process).
 2. Finish bootstrapping the project, migrate github issues to JIRA.
 3. Expand the community and adding new committers.

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

 There has been a delay with some of the committers getting user accounts.
 This is an impediment to the bootstrap process.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 Several new community members have submitted contributions, but we are
 largely still bootstrapping the project.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 We have continued to apply bug fixes necessary for the 0.9.0 release and
 expect one more release candidate before releasing 0.9.0 and migrating to
 the Apache process. We have adopted aspects of the apache process in
 anticipation of this.

 Our dev/user mailing lists have been created and we've notified the
 community that those lists should be used instead of the google groups
 list.  We will sunset the google groups list shortly.

Date of last release:

 - None. We are sill bootstrapping the project.

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

 - N/A -- We are still bootstrapping the project.

Storm is a distributed, fault-tolerant, and high-performance realtime
computation system that provides strong guarantees on the processing of
data.

Storm has been incubating since 2013-09-18.

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

 1. Transition community to new infrastructure and mailing lists
 2. Test and mature the Netty message passing implementation so all future
    releases do not include 0mq transport (which is LGPL)
 3. Make a release under Apache

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

 We are still waiting for ICLA's from Flip Kromer and David Lao.

 We are waiting for infrastructure to be set up so we can switch mailing
 lists and code hosting over to Apache.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 A few more users have been added to the Powered By page. Otherwise, we've
 received a steady amount of new patches and messages on the mailing list.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 A software grant has been filed by Nathan Marz for the project. Also, all
 contributor agreements Nathan has collected pre-Apache have been
 submitted to Apache. All committers except for two have filed ICLA's and
 CCLA's.

 We are making one last release via the old route during the transition
 into the incubator (0.9.0). We have switched development to an
 Apache-like consensus-driven approach and have made lots of progress on
 closing pull requests (as well as getting committers active in
 discussions, merging, and managing release process).

Date of last release:

 None

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

 N/A, this is the first status report.
