Toree provides applications with a mechanism to interactively and remotely
access Apache Spark. It enables interactive workloads between applications
and a Spark cluster. As a Jupyter Notebook extension, it provides the user
with a preconfigured environment for interacting with Spark using Scala,
Python, R or SQL.

Toree has been incubating since 2015-12-02.

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

 1. Make a release: The community is working on RC from 0.1.x branch.
    Master has moved to start support for Spark 2.0. Currently working on
    RC5.
 2. Grow a diverse community: We should put some emphasis on growing the
    community and making it diverse (the rule is at least three independent
    contributors) In progress.

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?

 1. Active communication in mailing list and gitter with early adopters
 2. Migrated gitter to away from ibm-et/spark-kernel to apache/toree
 3. More external contributions being made. Mainly focused on master to
    stabilize Spark 2.0 support

How has the project developed since the last report?

 1. Still working on 1st release.  Removed several legacy binaries from
    release builds that were not in compliance with Apache release
    processes.  Will be starting the vote for RC5 shortly
 2. Addressing issues opened by community

Date of last release:

 None since incubation.

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

--------------------
Unomi is a reference implementation of the OASIS Context Server specification
currently being worked on by the OASIS Context Server Technical Committee. It
provides a high-performance user profile and event tracking server.

Unomi has been incubating since 2015-10-05.

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

  1. Continued releases, and updated dependencies
  2. Grow up user and contributor communities, seeing more contribution/PR

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 are still targeting the development of the user community.  For that, we
  discussed about improving and polishing the website. Today, it's obvious
  that it's not easy to understand what Unomi can do and actually does.  The
  purpose is to give more use cases and introduction on the mailing list.
  Some small improvements have been performed in that way.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  The second Apache Unomi 1.1.0-incubating has been released.

  We updated key dependencies and provided new features in addition of the bug
  fixes. We also fixed the LGPL issue in the binary distribution.  The Unomi
  rules and conditions engine has been improved as well.

Date of last release:

  2016-10-03

    I am going to humbly request being removed as a mentor for this podling. I
    haven't had a chance to send it to the list but I don't have the bandwidth
    to actively provide oversight here.
