   newer version of ember.
 - There is also work ongoing to create a release with binary artifacts
   for easier consumption.

## Activity:
 There is general momentum within the community to continue to fix
 issues as well as make performance improvements for the 0.6 and 0.7
 maintenance lines as well as the mainline master branch.
 The main master branch had a recent alpha release for the 3rd-party
 plugins work from TEZ-2003 and work continues on that to
 stabilize the feature/APIs for a future alpha/beta release.
 In addition, there were enhancements for the UI to support a more
 dynamic version with live updates to track the progress of Tez DAGs.

## Health report:
 The community is quite healthy. There have been 2 releases in
 the past quarter. The user@ list is active with questions raised
 by various users and generally prompt replies from the contributor
 community. Bikas Saha will be giving a talk on Tez at
 ApacheCon Europe in the Big Data track.

  also a re-usable set of data-processing primitives which can

## Activity:

  There has been decent activity over the past few months. The
  maintenance lines for 0.5 and 0.6 are going strong with
  various fixes. Users are looking forward to a new release of
  0.6.1 which hopefully should happen in the next few weeks.
  New enhancements such as making the more performant
  PipelinedSorter the default sort implementation as well
  as initial work on a PipelinedShuffle have gone into the
  master branch.  Branch TEZ-2003 created for work related
  to allowing Tez to co-ordinate execution with external
  services ( initial focus to work with Hive’s LLAP engine)
  The release for 0.6.0 ( with the emphasis on the Tez UI )
  went out in January. On a different note, although the PMC
  has been following the same implicit policies that had been
  applied whilst incubating, we are now finally getting
  around to formalizing them into the project by-laws
  (jira TEZ-2231).

completed to help improve usability of Tez.  These are the 2
main objectives for the upcoming 0.5 release.

Tez is an effort to develop a generic application framework which can be used
to process arbitrarily complex data-processing tasks and also a re-usable set
of data-processing primitives which can be used by other projects.

Tez has been incubating since 2013-02-24.

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

 1. Growing the community.
 2.
 3.

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

 None at this time.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 No new PPMC members or committers added since the last report. We have
 started getting steady contributions from some contributors and hope to
 graduate them to committers within the coming months. There were around
 10 non-committers that contributed to the past 2 releases of Tez.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 Since the first week of February, 2014 (last report), we have had around
 300+ jiras filed and 215+ jiras resolved. 2 releases were done in the past
 3 months. 0.3.0-incubating was released in February and 0.4.0-incubating in
 April.

Date of last release:

 2014-04-05

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

At project incubation. No new PPMC members or committers added since the
last report.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 No new PPMC members or committers added since the last report. We have had
 interest from both new users and contributors via mailing lists and JIRA.
 The Hive project recently merged its native support for Tez into their
 trunk branch. The Pig community is also working on integrating  Tez and we
 have seen various JIRAs filed as well as some patches from Pig developers.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 Since the first week of November, 2013 (last report), we have had around
 180+ jiras filed and 130+ jiras resolved. We made the first release of Tez
 ( version 0.2.0 ) in the first week of December, 2013. There is currently
 ongoing work to make Tez work on a secure Hadoop cluster, after which we
 plan to do a 0.3.0 release.

Date of last release:

 2013-12-03

Tez has been incubating since 2013-02-24.

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

 2. Growing the community

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

None at this time.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 No new PPMC members or committers added since the last report. We have had
 some interest on the mailing lists both from a user and contributor
 perspective. There have been a few contributions coming in from new
 contributors. We are hoping to grow the community once Tez becomes a more
 mainstream feature in use by Hive and Pig.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 Since the first week of August, 2013 (last report), we have had around
 240+ jiras filed and 200+ jiras resolved. There have been multiple
 meetings with folks from the Hive and Pig projects. Folks in the Hive
 community have been working on integrating with Tez for quite some time
 (HIVE-4660 for more details). In the past few months, we have had more
 interactions with the Pig community on using Tez as one of the execution
 engines and there is quite a bit of work being done to integrate with Tez
 (more details on PIG-3446).

Date of last release:

 None yet, we anticipate making one end of November, 2013.

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

 At project incubation. No new PPMC members or committers added since the

   The project is moving very quickly, but needs to make a release soon.

Tez has been incubating since 2013-02-24.

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

 1. Develop collaborations with other Apache projects, including Hadoop, YARN
 2. Make an initial Tez release.
 3. Grow the Apache Tez community.

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

 None at this time.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 No new PPMC members or committers added since the last report. We need to
 work to do a better job of identifying new contributors, but there is great
 activity so I don't think this will be a big issue.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 1. 170 jiras filed and 120 odd jiras resolved since the first week of June
    2013.
 2. The first Tez meetup was held at the Hortonworks office on July 31st and
    had an attendance of around 30+ users/developers from across the Hadoop
    ecosystem community.
 3. Seeing more adoption from the Hive community as well as some initial
    prototyping work being done in Pig.
 4. Looking to make a release in the next couple of months after the release
    of hadoop-2.1.0-beta ( which Tez depends on ).

 We are to looking to increase both the user base as well as get more
 contributors by having more meetups and also expect a release to drive more
 adoption of Tez.

Shepherd notes:

 marvin: Active and Mentors are engaged.  The dev@ list is mostly Jenkins
 spam and all the action is on the issues@ and commits@ lists, which may be
 surprising to people who expect that "if it didn't happen on the dev list it
 didn't happen".

Another here that we need to do a better job of here is discussing issues
on list. I see lots of JIRAs and commits, but few [DISCUSS] and other threads.
There was a discussion of merging TEZ-1 which is great though.

How has the project developed since the last report?

1. 109 issues resolved and 81 currently open in JIRA (lots of work going on).
2. Discussion to merge TEZ-1 (branch) into master.
3. Giri and Hitesh created CI for Tez:
  https://builds.apache.org/job/Tez-Build/8/console

Mailing lists for dev, private, and commits are up and running.  There
have been some JIRAs, Git is up and running and a couple of larger
code contributions have been made. Chris raised this as a potential
issue. In the meanwhile, moderate-low development is occuring.

needs accounts set up. Chris can help with this as can the other
mentors. Jira is ready, we are beginning to bootstrap work.
