Thrift

16 Aug 2017 [Jake Farrell / Bertrand]

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

19 Jul 2017 [Jake Farrell / Rich]

Apache Thrift is a framework for providing cross-platform RPC and serialization.

Project Status
---------
The Apache Thrift community continues to see consistent growth with submissions
from new contributors for bug fixes and client library improvements. There have
been a number of stability and performance enhancements to our Go, Node and
Python client libraries and we have just cut the 0.11.0 branch [1] and are
beginning testing in preparation for our 0.11.0 release candidate.

A code audit is also starting to take place to ensure that Apache Thrift is
compliant with the recent category-x licensing changes [2] that occurred due to
the Facebook BSD+patents license changes.

Apache Thrift is a framework for providing cross-platform RPC and serialization.

Project Status
---------
The Apache Thrift community is happy to announce that we have expanded our
client library offering to 25 languages now with the new addition of Rust. We
are addressing some performance regressions that occurred in some of our client
libraries in the Apache Thrift 0.10.0 release and are planning on a 0.11-rc0 to be
packaged and ready for vote before the end of April.

20 Jul 2016 [Jake Farrell / Bertrand]

Apache Thrift is a framework for providing cross-platform RPC and serialization.

Project Status
---------
The Apache Thrift community has seen a drop in activity this quarter due to
issues with our CI pipeline and the ability for us to quickly test new
contributions. Our backlog was spread across multiple systems and we had
multiple ways a new code contribution could be submitted with multiple CI
systems all testing different things and having their own set of problems.

The Apache Thrift community discussed what was occurring on the dev@ list and
the consensus was made to create a single work flow which would involve moving
fully over to Github for all code contributions, stopping use of the ASF
Jenkins for CI and using Travis and AppVeyor to meet our needs. We now have
this new single work flow in place and are seeing successful green builds on
master again for new contributions.

We are now discussing how to best go back through the backlog and test
previously contributed patches in the new work flow while we continue working
to improve our test speed and coverage.

With the new work flow in place and successful builds from our CI we
are planning to cut our 0.10.0 release candidate before the end of July.

Project Status
--------------

This is a status report on the Apache Thrift website as requested by
Greg Stein on Sunday, March 4, 2012. The Apache Thrift website has
been minimally maintained since the projects initial incubation and is
currently in the process of a new reworking. We are investigating
different build mechanisms which will allow for us to use markdown as
the primary site language to facilitate easier community contributions
as well as a new site structure. We are also looking at possibly
moving our tutorials and how-to guides from the Apache provided wiki
and integrate them directly into the Apache Thrift site.

The following is our progress in updating the content on the new
Apache Thrift website to meet the requirements in the Branding Report
Checklist:

Project Website Basics
 - Complete

Project Naming And Descriptions
 - In progress: updating all references throughout the site to
   comply with the ASF standard, "Apache Thrift"

This is Thrift's first report as a TLP project.

Community
We've added one committer, Christian Lavoie, since graduating. In general,
the traffic on the user and dev lists has picked up nicely. A steady amount
of work is being done to improve the build system and bring some of the
lesser-maintained language libraries up to date. There appears to be a
growing set of users who would like Thrift to be usable natively on Windows.

Releases
We haven't made any releases since graduation, though we have likely
accumulated enough fixes to warrant an 0.6 release.

Branding
A branding audit has not yet been undertaken.

 * Ongoing feature additions and bugfixes
 * Bryan Duxbury appointed as release manager last report cycle
 * Vote currently pending for release candidate 0.3.0-rc5, waiting on two
more IPMC votes

19 May 2010

Thrift has been discussing what is required for it to move forwards - most
notably in relation to releases. While many developers work off their own
branches, and therefore do not require or need formal releases, they do
accept the need for releases. As a way to encourage releasing, a proposal
was made to have a release manager. As a result of this suggestion, Bryan
Duxbury was voted in as the Thrift release manager, and is intending to take
on regular releases.

build services that work efficiently and seamlessly between a variety of
programming languages. Thrift entered the Apache Incubator in May 2008.

 * Release candidate 0.2 was cut and released on December 11
 * Worth noting some tension in the community around Apache release
process and ICLA issues encountered, resolved via email discussion but
resulted in the resignation of one PPMC member
 * General continued iteration and bugfixing

With a release out the door, the largest hurdle to graduation is out of our
way.

*** DID NOT REPORT

Thrift is running, and did put out a release in December. There were 199
developer messages (a large percentage of which are JIRA posts), a handful
of user-related messages, and roughly a score of commits.

* Release candidate is still outstanding -- review has continued but the
release has not been finalized
* Lots of general iteration and bugfixing activity

Generally, things are in a similar state as last quarter. There is plenty of
activity in JIRA and on the mailing lists, but we need to finalize our
release candidate and get it officially out the door.

Recent Activity of Note:

 * Have created RC1 and RC2 for our 0.1 release, still waiting on votes to
finalize RC2
   * Next step after approval is to present to the Incubator PMC
 * Esteve Fernandez and Alexander Shigin both received passing votes for
committership!
 * Progress made on non-blocking C++ server
 * New language support for compact protocol
 * Work started on an ActionScript generator
 * Java configuration/install process improved
 * Simplified compiler installation process via dependency removal
 * More in-depth comparative analysis of Thrift vs. similar serialization
platforms

Biggest next step for considering graduation is getting the release out
successfully. Licensing issues all seem to be in good shape with no legal
issues.

development. It combines a software stack with a code generation engine to
build services that work efficiently and seamlessly between a variety of
programming languages. Thrift entered the Apache Incubator in May 2008.

Recent Activity:

 * General iteration and bug-fixing continuing
 * Added support for a general type-annotation system added to the
grammar -- allows for greater flexibility in type modifications
 * Significant additions made to some language libraries (i.e. C# has become
much more complete)
 * Jake Luciani was granted commit rights. He was on the original project
proposal, but did not contribute for some 10 months. Therefore, his addition
was handled with a PPMC, then an Incubator PMC vote

Issues before Graduation:

 * We are still working through adding more committers to the project.
 * We are also still developing against the trunk, and will need to create
our first Apache release.

Thrift is a software framework for scalable cross-language services
development. Thrift allows you to define data types and service interfaces
in a simple definition file. Taking that file as input, the compiler
generates code to be used to easily build RPC clients and servers that
communicate seamlessly across programming languages.

Incubating since May 2008

Status:
* The SVN repository has been moved to Apache.
* Mailing lists and JIRA have been set up.
* Have 9 committers (6.5 from Facebook, 2.5 not from Facebook).
* Adapted to the JIRA workflow.
* Some best practices around use of Git have been developed. Documentation
and further discussion required.
* Significant rework of the Ruby bindings completed and committed.

Plans:
* Improve (wiki) documentation.
* Complete a release cycle plan. (What/when/how defines the release of a
version?)
* Document and elaborate best practices of Git as a contribution tool.
(Background: we are very happy with the way Git worked for us before
incubation, and we want to find a way to make it continue to work within the
Apache Way).
* Finish rounding up Software Grant forms.
