TinkerPop

19 Apr 2017 [Stephen Mallette / Chris]

## Description:
Apache TinkerPop is a graph computing framework for both graph databases
(OLTP) and graph analytic systems (OLAP).

## Activity:
The TinkerPop PMC voted positively to add a new committer, but that
person declined when invited, preferring instead to continue to contribute
as they have been. Also, Robert Dale, a committer, was invited to join the
PMC and he accepted.

TinkerPop released versions 3.1.6 and 3.2.5. New development has started
on  the follow-on releases to those versions and work for the major line
of 3.3.0 continues.

The wider TinkerPop community saw some growth with the announcement of
the release of ChronoGraph[1], a versioned graph database that implements
the TinkerPop interfaces. Also of note, JanusGraph[2] (formerly Titan) is
under development at the Linux Foundation. JanusGraph continues in the
steps of Titan in also implementing the TinkerPop interfaces.

There were also a number of talks and blog posts related to TinkerPop and
the Gremlin language that were noted during the reporting months. The
following list represents a sample of this type of TinkerPop content that
was produced by PMC members:

* "Enabling a Multimodel Graph Platform with Apache TinkerPop" - Jason
Plurad[3]
* "Graphoendodonticology" - Marko Rodriguez[4]

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

## Releases:
- 3.1.6 (February 8, 2017)
- 3.2.4 (February 8, 2017)

## PMC/Committer:

- Last PMC addition was Robert Dale - April 2017
- Last committer addition was Robert Dale - October 2016

## Description:
Apache TinkerPop is a graph computing framework for both graph databases
(OLTP) and graph analytic systems (OLAP).

## Activity:
TinkerPop has added a new committer in Robert Dale.

TinkerPop released versions 3.1.5 and 3.2.3. New developed has started on
the follow-on releases to those versions and work for the new major line
of 3.3.0 is under way.

It was nice to see some additional growth in the number of TinkerPop
providers - those who implement and expand on TinkerPop interfaces.
OrientDB, a distributed multi-model database, announced official support
for Apache TinkerPop. It was also announced that HGraphDB had been released
which provides a TinkerPop implementation over Apache HBase. This news was
recently reported on the ASF blog[1].

As an update to brand management issues mentioned in the previous report,
recall that the TinkerPop PMC had become aware of two individuals not
acknowledging our marks with respect to products sold with TinkerPop
graphics. While one of the two was quick to respond to the issue and
correct it, we found the other unresponsive. As we made several attempts at
contact via email, we aren't really sure if there is much else that we can
reasonably do. The mailing address on the website doesn't look legitimate,
there is no phone number to call. The site itself looks somewhat
incomplete in many ways (e.g. lorem ipsum text), so perhaps this is not
worth pursuing any further.

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

## Releases:

19 Oct 2016 [Stephen Mallette / Shane]

## Description:
 Apache TinkerPop is a graph computing framework for both graph databases
 (OLTP) and graph analytic systems (OLAP).

## Activity:
 TinkerPop has added a new member to the PMC in Jason Plurad and a new
 committer in David Brown.

 TinkerPop released 3.1.4 and 3.2.2. 3.2.2 contains gremlin-python[1], which
 officially opens TinkerPop up to the Python community. We tend to think
 of Python as the most used language for TinkerPop outside of the JVM so
 having native support for it should help expand usage. October will see
 releases 3.1.5 and 3.2.3. These two releases are mostly bug fixes and minor
 usability improvements. We expect to continue to maintain both of these
 lines of code (bug fixes for 3.1.4 and ongoing development of 3.2.2), but
 intend to begin work on a new major line in 3.3.0 in the coming weeks.

 In an effort to share the technical knowledge of "releasing TinkerPop", we've
 started to share the work of that process. While we've always had our release
 process documented[2] and a single release manager can handle releases,
 we've determined it better (when possible) to have one release manager per
 release line. Our initial trial with one release manager per version, on the
 previous release, worked well. We hope to continue with this approach for
 future releases.

 Promotionally speaking, there have been a number of talks at conferences on,
 or related, to TinkerPop. As a sample, here are the talks given by PMC
 members:

 Graph Computing with Apache TinkerPop - Dr. Marko Rodriguez [3]
 Graph Processing with Titan and Scylla - Jason Plurad [4]

 On the brand management front, it was noted by a PMC member (Jason Plurad
 had just been voted in almost to the day he made the report) that there was
 an individual selling products (baby clothes, mugs, t-shirts, etc.) on Amazon
 with TinkerPop graphics on them. Soon after, a second company was also noted
 selling similar products on an independent site. Neither, had permission from
 Apache to do that. After some discussion with Trademarks, the PMC chair sent
 notice to both sites requesting that they acknowledge the marks in their
 product description. No response was received from the seller on Amazon, but
 all products were quickly removed. No response was received from the second
 seller, but on greater inspection of the site, it doesn't really appear to be
 terribly active or maintained. Next steps with respect to this seller have
 yet to be discussed.

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

## Releases:
 - 3.1.4 (September 6, 2016)
 - 3.2.2 (September 6, 2016)

## Description:
 Apache TinkerPop is a graph computing framework for both graph databases
 (OLTP) and graph analytic systems (OLAP).

## Activity:
 As discussed in the previous report, TinkerPop was preparing for the first
 releases outside of incubation. Those releases were voted on positively by
 the community and released the week of July 18th. We released 3.1.3 which
 was largely a maintenance packaging with some minor features and 3.2.1
 which is the recommended version to be on.

 Going forward, we expect to continue to maintain the 3.1.x line of code
 providing bug fixes when needed. New development continues on the 3.2.x
 line and we expect our initial release of Gremlin Language Variants[1] for
 Python to be part of that line, likely 3.2.2.

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

20 Jul 2016 [Stephen Mallette / Brett]

## Description:
 Apache TinkerPop is a graph computing framework for both graph databases
 (OLTP) and graph analytic systems (OLAP).


## Activity:
 It was reported last month that TinkerPop had still not completely transferred
 from incubator infrastructure. Since that time, Apache Infrastructure has
 completed the transfer and TinkerPop is now fully on TLP infrastructure.

 As alluded to in the previous report, two releases (3.1.3 and 3.2.1) are expected
 to be up for vote by the community during the week of July 18th. Major
 development continues to focus on opening TinkerPop to non-JVM programming
 languages through the concept of Gremlin Language Variants[1]. TinkerPop is
 currently focused on Python as the first of these languages to support.

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

## Releases:

## Description:
 Apache TinkerPop is a graph computing framework for both graph databases
 (OLTP) and graph analytic systems (OLAP).

 This is TinkerPop's first month outside of incubation. We are still
 awaiting resource transfer changes related to graduation to take place as
 there are issues preventing the infrastructure team from completing that
 process.

 Project development has been building up to two new releases
 which are expected to be released in July. A key area of focus in this
 last month has been related to opening TinkerPop to non-JVM programming
 languages through the concept of Gremlin Language Variants[1]. In taking
 this direction, TinkerPop becomes more accessible to non-JVM developer
 communities.

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

TinkerPop has been incubating since 2015-01-16.

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

 The outstanding issues have been addressed.

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

 Nothing at this time.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 We have 4 new committers: Ketrina Yim, Pieter Martin, Jean-Baptiste Musso,
 and Michael Pollmeier

How has the project developed since the last report?

 Since the last status report, 172 new JIRA issues have been created and
 126 have been resolved.  Open discussions of the project related
 activities and decisions continue on the TinkerPop dev mailing list.  The
 committer count has been growing and various other TinkerPop community
 members have shown an increased amount of participation on tickets and in
 discussion.  Excellent work is being performed by a variety of folks on a
 consistent basis that has resulted in two releases since the last report.

 Over the past few months, work was performed to stand up a new DataStax
 hosted website, Planet TinkerPop.  This raised concerns in the Apache
 community and it was determined that the best course of action was to
 request that Planet TinkerPop be taken down, and some of the
 vendor-neutral TinkerPop content be donated to TinkerPop for usage on the
 TinkerPop incubator site.  Efforts were made to avoid running afoul of
 Apache guidelines prior to the Planet TinkerPop launch, but the PPMC did
 not have a complete understanding of Apache brand management expectations.
 Over the past weeks, the transition of DataStax donated content to the
 TinkerPop site has been completed.  In the process, the PPMC has received
 guidance and clarification from mentors and the wider Apache community.
 We feel that the Apache TinkerPop site is stronger now than ever and will
 continue to serve as a great vendor neutral resource going forward. The
 lessons learned throughout this process will serve the TinkerPop PPMC well
 going forward.

 Since the last status report, 166 new JIRA issues have been created and
 127 have been resolved.  Open discussions of project related activities
 and decisions continue on the TinkerPop dev mailing list.

Date of last release(s):

 * 2016-04-21 - Apache TinkerPop 3.1.2
 * 2016-04-21 - Apache TinkerPop 3.2.0

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

TinkerPop is a graph computing framework written in Java

TinkerPop has been incubating since 2015-01-16.

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

 1. Add more members to the PPMC.
 2. Add more members to the committer list.
 3. N/A (unless the mentors have ideas?)

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

 Nothing at this time.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 We have 2 new committers: Dylan Millikin and Ted Wilmes.  Ted Wilmes has
 also joined the PPMC.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 Since the last status report, 166 new JIRA issues have been created and127
 have been resolved.  Travis CI has been enabled so all PRs are
 automatically built and tested upon submittal. Open discussions of project
 related activities and decisions continue on the TinkerPop dev mailing
 list.

 We continue to reach out to other Apache projects to discuss integration
 possibilities.  Since the last report, we have had discussions with Apache
 Flink and Apache S2Graph about adding TinkerPop support.

 A number of graph providers have released new versions of their software
 with TinkerPop support.  These include Stardog, Blazegraph, and OrientDB
 (via the community driven, orientdb-gremlin).  This demonstrates a
 continued community interest, and demand for TinkerPop support.

 A tutorials section has been added to the TinkerPop homepage along with a
 number of tutorials targeted at the TinkerPop beginner.  The hope is that
 this will lower the barrier of entry for new folks who are interested in
 the graph space and TinkerPop in particular.

 The following articles/presentations/blogposts were provided about
 TinkerPop from TinkerPop members since the last report:

 2. Add more members to the committer list.
 3. N/A (unless the mentors have ideas?)

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

 No. Recently, we have really appreciated Daniel Gruno's (mentor) efforts
 to get our development community more connected by setting up an Apache
 HipChat account for us and interacting with us in a more real-time fashion
 on various procedures/policies of Apache in a proactive manner. This has
 helped to explain to us (through doing) what is required of Apache.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 We have 2 new committers: Jason Plurad and Matthew Frantz. We are in the
 process of [DISCUSS] about two other potential committers.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 We have since instantiated a 'review-then-commit' model. Daniel Gruno
 (mentor) worked with us to set the appropriate policy documentation and
 thus far, it has been going very well.

 In terms of the adoption of TinkerPop, note that Amazon recently announced
 that they use Apache TinkerPop for their order fulfillment network (1
 trillion edges). This is very public discussion of our technology (videos
 + blog posts) should help to attract development talent.

 We have compiled a list of the other Apache technologies that TinkerPop
 works with: Apache Cassandra, Apache HBase, Apache Hadoop, Apache Spark,
 Apache Giraph, Apache Atlas, and Apache Falcon. We bring this up to
 identify the integration of Apache TinkerPop into the greater Apache
 ecosystem.

 Daniel Gruno (humbedooh):

   I will note that despite HipChat and other direct message platforms
   involved, the async messages, especially revolving around larger
   community/project issues have been on the rise over the past 3 months,
   up 71% compared with the 3 months before that, as evident from
   <http://s.apache.org/Atz> (this is discounting git and jira messages). I
   see this as a positive signal that the podling is working towards a more
   open and inclusive discussion pattern. New committers are being
   on-boarded, and I hope to see more PPMC members join the ranks soon.

 1. We need to fully migrate to Apache infrastructure -- Migrating GitHub
    to JIRA is all that is left. This should happen next week.
 2. We need to get our SNAPSHOT deployment going -- AsciiDoc, JavaDoc, and
    SNAPSHOT jars. We have Jenkins works for us, just need to go the final
    mile.
 3. We need to release 3.0.0.M8. This will be a great milestone showing
    that TinkerPop is full-on Apache and producing like a well oiled
    machine.

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

 Everything has been going smoothly since the last report. While the
 processes are slower than we would like, they are moving along. Getting
 past the infrastructure migration will be a big win for us.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 We have not grown our committer pool. Currently it is still only Marko,
 Stephen, and James. Those individuals that were committers when TinkerPop
 was outside of Apache are currently providing pull requests. When we get
 past the infrastructure migration process, Stephen and I plan to recommend
 a few long term TinkerPop developers to join as committer pool and thus,
 grow the developer community.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 We have migrated from GitHub to ApacheGit. We have migrated our website
 from http://tinkerpop.com to http://tinkerpop.incubator.apache.org/. We
 have migrated our GitHub presence to Apache GitHub
 (https://github.com/apache/incubator-tinkerpop). We have prepped our
 source code with ASF preamble headers and have gutted all "non-Apache
 compliant" dependencies (save for one -- we are working with our mentors
 on this). Finally, on the development front, the developers are coding
 every day.

Shepherd/Mentor notes:

 Daniel Gruno (humbedooh):

   I would like to see more people invited to the project as committers.
   There are a few people with several patches against TinkerPop that could
   be valuable committers.

 John D. Ament (johndament):

   Agree with Daniel's comments.  Growth should be one of the key
   objectives.

TinkerPop is a graph computing framework written in Java

TinkerPop has been incubating since 2015-01-16.

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

 1. Software grant needs to be approved.
 2. Migration to Apache infrastructure.
 3. Getting our team comfortable with the new environment.

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

 We have been hanging on the software grant approval for a week now. Be
 good to get that knocked out so we can move forward.

   Links to mailing lists are still pointing to google, appears to be on
   purpose.  By doing so keeps the mailing lists active from original state.
