Traffic Server

19 Jul 2017 [Bryan Call / Shane]

## Description:
Apache Traffic Server is an HTTP proxy server and cache, similar to Squid
and Varnish in functionality and features. What makes ATS unique across the
landscape of HTTP proxy caches is a focus on extensibility (plugins), HTTP
protocol conformity and performance. ATS is driving some of the largest CDNs
in the world, delivering a significant portion of all Internet traffic.

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

## Activity:
 - We had our first ATS Reliability summit in St. Croix.  We focused on
   closing out Coverity issues and went from 367 issues down to 122 issues.

 - We had the ATS Summit combined with the Traffic Control Summit, 2 days
   before ApacheCon (5/14 and 5/15), at the InterContiental in Miami.  There
   were 50 people that attended both summits.

## Health report:
 - We are continuing to stabilize the 7.1.0 release and a couple of large
   companies are running it in production on a limited number of servers.
   It is taking longer than expected to make the 7.1.0 release and it will
   be coming out soon.

  registration and the schedule.

 - We switched from Jira to Github for tickets/issues on January 1st.  We
   will have a discussion about the change at the ATS Summit and ask for
   feedback.

## Health report:

## Description:

 Apache Traffic Server is an HTTP proxy server and cache, similar to Squid
 and Varnish in functionality and features. What makes ATS unique across the
 landscape of HTTP proxy caches is a focus on extensibility (plugins), HTTP
 protocol conformity and performance. ATS is driving some of the largest CDNs
 in the world, delivering a significant portion of all internet traffic.

## Issues:

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

## Activity:

 - We held our Fall Summit in Sunnyvale, at Linkedin.  There were over 80
   people that registered and approximately that many attended.  There were
   a number of great presentations from the ATS Community and we had two
   companies give talks on products that support ATS.

 - At the Fall Summit the ATS Community discussed moving to GitHub for issue
   tracking and at the beginning of the year (1/1/2017) we made the
   transition.

 - We are discussing having the 2017 Spring Summit at ApacheCon in May.

 - Five people from the ATS Community attended the IETF 97 meeting in Seoul in
   November.  There is an interest in the QUIC protocol in the ATS Community
   and a few of us will be attending the IETF QUIC Interim Meeting in January
   in Tokyo.

## Health report:

 - We have branched the v7.1.0 release and are working on finalizing the
   release.

 - We expect continued increase in committers, partially thanks to the Github
   migration which we feel continues to encourage and simplify user
   participation.

 - Commits are down from the previous quarter.  We were preparing for the
   v7.0.0 release in the previous quarter and v7.0.0 had more changes in the
   release then we normally have, more than 400 issues closed.

## PMC changes:

 - Currently 39 PMC members.

 Special Order 7A, Change the Apache Traffic Server Project
 Chair, was approved by Unanimous Vote of the directors
 present.

## Description:
 Apache Traffic Server is an HTTP proxy server and cache, similar to Squid
 and Varnish in functionality and features. What makes ATS unique across the
 landscape of HTTP proxy caches is a focus on extensibility (plugins), HTTP
 protocol conformity and performance. ATS is driving some of the largest CDNs
 in the world, delivering a significant portion of all internet traffic.

## Issues:
 - I (Leif Hedstrom) have decided to step down as PMC chair. The ATS PMC has
   voted on a replacement, and is recommending Bryan Call as new PMC chair.
   (See Special Orders 7A).
 - This is my last Board report for the project , and I'd like to thank the
   Board and the entire Apache Community for the support and trust.

## Activity:
 - No events were planned or held in the last quarter, however the community
   has worked hard organizing our upcoming ATS Fall Summit. Details for the
   summit is still being finalized, see our Wiki for more information:

      https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/TS/Fall+2016+Summit

## Health report:
 - ATS v7.0.0 is in its final stages of being released, hopefully in the next
   few weeks we'll have a candidate.
 - We expect continued increase in committers, partially thanks to the Github
   migration which we feel continues to encourage and simplify user
   participation.

## PMC changes:
 - Currently 39 PMC members.
 - Chao Xu was added to the PMC on Sun Sep 18 2016

## Committer base changes:
 - Currently 47 committers.
 - Chao Xu was added as a committer on Wed Sep 14 2016

## Releases:
 - 6.2.0 was released on Sun Jul 24 2016

## Mailing list activity:
 - Again, the drop in email activity is because of our changes to Github, and
   we ended up duplicating a noticeable amount of automated emails for a
   quarter. That has now settled, and we're back to normal levels. Hence the
   dramatic changes in traffic to some lists, which are as expected.

 - users@trafficserver.apache.org:
    - 500 subscribers (up 16 in the last 3 months):
    - 243 emails sent to list (up 40%)
        - 49 active participants/authors (up 22%)
        - 46 topics (up 4%)

 - dev@trafficserver.apache.org:
    - 323 subscribers (up 11 in the last 3 months):
    - 256 emails sent to list (down 90%)
        - 39 active participants/authors (down 18%)
        - 50 topics (down 85%)

    - 15 subscribers (up 1 in the last 3 months):
    - 1 emails sent to list (0 in previous quarter)

    - 37 subscribers (up 0 in the last 3 months):
    - 9734 emails sent to list (5982 in previous quarter)

 - summits@trafficserver.apache.org:
    - 14 subscribers (up 0 in the last 3 months)

## JIRA activity:
 - 305 JIRA tickets created in the last 3 months
 - 358 JIRA tickets closed/resolved in the last 3 months

## IRC activity (#traffic-server):
 - 62 users (25 active)
 - 1,938 messages sent

(note: The IRC metrics are new, and only partial for this quarter).

## Description:
 Apache Traffic Server is an HTTP proxy server and cache, similar to Squid
 and Varnish in functionality and features. What makes ATS unique across the
 landscape of HTTP proxy caches is a focus on extensibility (plugins), HTTP
 protocol conformity and performance. ATS is driving some of the largest CDNs
 in the world, delivering a significant portion of all internet traffic.

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

## Activity:
 - We held our Spring Summit in Vancouver, just before the ApacheCon
   conference. In a packed room, we shared and discussed use cases of ATS,
   complex problems and solutions, and some future directions. Emails and
   Jira's were created where we agreed on concrete proposals (such as the
   updated release schedules).

 - At ApacheCon, several ATS related presentations were made during the
   conferences.

 - We have decided to skip one releaes this release year, bringing us down to
   only 3 planned releases. Details on the planned releases is available at

     https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/TS/Release+Management

 - We have migrated to the new MATT system succesfully, and we are seeing a
   stready stream of contributions on the Github pull requests. Not only from
   current committers, but also from new contributors. We have had two minor
   issues with the synchronization, both of which were automatically detected
   by MATT, and subsequently quickly resolved by Infra.

 - In addition, we've added support for our Jenkins CI to also allow for
   builds on two platforms (Linux and FreeBSD) of all Github PRs. This has
   helped us tremedeusly in code reviews as well as quality, avoding
   committing changes that would otherwise break the CI builds.

 - Committers from the ATS community are participating in the upcoming HTTP
   Workshop in Stockholm, in July.

## Health report:
 - ATS v6.2.0 is currently in RC3 release, and we're aiming for a final
   release in July. v7.0.0 is now scheduled for mid-october (pushed out by ~1
   month).

 - Activity on mailing lists is normal. However, the numbers below are
   somewhat skewed due to the Github integration. This has been addressed
   (thanks infra!) and we expect the number of emails to dev@ to return to
   normal for the next report.

 - It's still early to say, but our migration to Github and the eco-system
   around Github Pull Requests seems to have a postive impact on community
   participation. We are seeing roughly a 20% increase in contributors
   compared to previous report. This is very positive, and we hope this will
   also lead to new committers being added in the upcoming months and year.

## Description:
 Apache Traffic Server is an HTTP proxy server and cache, similar to Squid
 and Varnish in functionality and features.

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

## Activity:
 - Planning for the 2016 Spring Summit has begun, and we're finalizing our
   agenda. Details are on

      https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/TS/Spring+2016+Summit

 - The ATS project is as of 4/10/2016 enabled to use the Git-Dual system
 provided by Infra! This is very exciting, and we think this will continue
 increasing community participation and growth. It also really simplifies the
 work done by committers dealing with an increase in Pull Requests (we've had
 over 500 github PRs, total).

 Many thanks to the entire Infra team for making this happen! Special thanks
 to Daniel Gruno for for going above and beyond his duty, making the
 migration seemless and painless (so far :).

## Health report:
 - Activity in the community is healthy, with pretty significant increase in
 mailing list activity and community participation. We continue adding new
 committers this quarter  as well.

 - ATS v6.2.0 is being prepared as we speak, and we expect this LTS release to
 be ready for the planned 05/15/2016 release schedule.

 - ATS is becoming recognized as a leader in the HTTP/2 server space, and the
 team developing this is continuing making significant improvements with every
 release.

## Description:
 Apache Traffic Server is an HTTP proxy server and cache, similar to Squid
 and Varnish in functionality and features.

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

## Activity:
 - The 2015 Fall Summit was hosted by, and held at, Yahoo! campus. Roughly 80
   participants were  present. The Summit was very well received.
 - We are starting planning for our Spring Summit, which likely will be held
   in combination with ACNA'16.

## Health report:
 - We are happy to announce that since last board report, three new committers
   have been voted into the community! This is particularly exciting since
   they all three have been focusing on our HTTP/2 efforts.
 - We're in the final stages of a new v6.1.0 release, scheduled for January
   2016 release. No new releases were made since the last report, but our
   releases are following expected release schedules for the year.

   to several emails. This was a "Special Orders" agenda for the July 2015
   board meeting (see Item E). The removed PMC members are welcome back at any

## Description:
 Apache Traffic Server is an HTTP proxy server and cache, similar to Squid
 and Varnish in functionality and features.

## Activity:
 The community has worked feverishly to finish the upcoming v6.0.0 release.
 Expected release date is mid to end of July. On an interesting side note,
 Comcast has Open Sourced a management portal around Traffic Server:

     https://github.com/Comcast/traffic_control

 This was announced on our mailing list, and it's unclear at this point if
 the project will stay on Github, or move to ASF. We will keep both the
 Incubator PMC and Board in the loop.

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

## LDAP committee/Committership changes:
 - Currently 41 committers and 39 LDAP committee members.

Events
======

At ApacheCon 2014, we were represented with a full day track dedicated to
Traffic Server. Our spring Summit was held over two days at the same venue in
Denver, and was well received. We're planning for a fall Summit, the initial
idea was to do it in Budapest, but there seems to be little interest from the
community so far. We'll make a decision on where to host the next Summit soon,
but right now it looks like we'll do it in California instead.

Two Traffic Server community members will go to Velocity China in August and
talk about our project.

Releases

the EOL of all v4.1.x releases. The v4.2.x version will be supported until
v6.0.0 is released, roughly May 2015, and we expect a number of releases to be
made in the next year.

Upcoming releases include:

 * Soon: v4.2.2, fixing a few critical cache related issues etc.
 * Possibly: v5.0.1 in July
 * August: v5.1.0

Our v5.0.0 release also marked the End-Of-Life of the old v3.2.x release. No
further releases will be made for this version.

both on Wednesday night and Thursday night.

Releases
========

One new release was made since last report, and it's worth repeating that all
ATS releases are considered stable.

  Apache Traffic Server v4.2.0 (released 3/19/2014)

The v4.2.x family of releases is also a LTS branch, and this release marks
the EOL of all v4.1.x releases. The v4.2.x version will be supported until
v6.0.0 is released, roughly May 2015, and we expect a number of releases to be
made in the next year. Our normal release cycles continues of course, with the
next stable release being v5.0.0.

Upcoming releases include

 * Soon: v4.2.1, fixing a few critical cache related issues
 * May: v5.0.0, which starts our new major release cycle.

The release of v5.0.0 will also see the end of life of the old v3.2.x
releases. No further releases in the v3.2.x family is expected, we will make
public announcements of this in the near future. We know the ASF is still
running some servers on v3.2.x, and we'd be happy to provide resources to help
a smooth migration to a newer version.

  Apache Traffic Server v3.3.5

This also marks a major update to our release process. For more details, see
https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/TS/Release+Management. Some
highlights from this are:

 * Strict Semantic Versioning. Upgrading within a major version is always
   compatible from APIs, ABIs and configurations perspective.
 * Patch releases (e.g. v4.0.2) are made for security and critical bugs.
 * All releases are considered stable (i.e. no more development release).
 * Quarterly minor releases, on fixed schedules (May, Aug, Nov and Feb).

the last board report. 292 changes were committed to our git repository from
23 contributors.

Participation from community members on our official Blog site and Twitter
account is good, but this is still an area that needs more work. We're to
the point where we need to evangelize the project and software to attract
more contributors, to continue innovation and improve code stability.


Events
======

Comcast made an interesting presentation at the CDN Summit in New York,
showing how they built their next generation CDN on Apache Traffic Server.

At Velocity, LinkedIn presented their entire content management and delivery
tools stack, based on Apache Traffic Server and plugins. They also announced
their PageSpeed plugin, which they will release to the ASF and the Apache
Traffic Server project soon.

A BarCamp is planned for July 9-10th in Denver. More details are available
at https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/TS/BarCamp+Denver+2013 .

We are also contemplating either hosting or participating in a BarCamp in
China this year. This is an area where there is a lot of potential growth
for our community, and we already have many active contributors and
committers in the area.


Releases
========

Two developer releases were prepared:

 Apache Traffic Server v3.3.2
 Apache Traffic Server v3.3.4


Our last stable release was v3.2.4, released on January 25. Our hope is that
the next major release, v3.4.0, should be ready by the end of July. This is
later than expected, we're currently 4-6 weeks behind schedule. A v3.2.5
stable release is also imminent.

Several ATS or ATS related presentations were given at ACNA-13. Thanks
to the conference organizers, and our presenters! We had several ATS
Hackathon / Bar Camp events, with participants from all over the world.
All in all, it was a great event for the community.

There is renewed activity among our committers, with a large number
of commits and Jira tickets resolved in the last few months. Overall

going emeritus for the time being. We would like to thank Paul for all his
contributions to the project, in particularly during incubation and the
early stages joining the Apache Foundation. The mailing lists are seeing
slightly less growth than previous quarters:

 users@   - 324 subscribers (up 8% since last report)
 dev@     - 219 subscribers (up 8% since last report)


The PMC has decided to combine the committer and PMC membership votes into
one. Going forward, new committers that are voted in have a choice to join
either as both committer and PMC member, or just as a committer.

We had a successful Traffic Server Hackathon at OSCON in Portland, and on
10/18 several of our committers are attending the Web Caches Meetup hosted
by Yahoo (http://s.apache.org/c1a).

An introduction to Apache Traffic Server will be presented at ApacheCon-EU
in November.


Releases
========

Development has been somewhat slow over the summer months, but we made one
release:

 3.3.0           - The first development release after v3.2.

This version includes several new experimental plugins, including a Lua
plugin framework (to write plugins in Lua scripts), and a plugin to
handle stale content (RFC 5861).

On further positive notes, a SPDY plugin has been committed to the main
git repository. It's still in somewhat rough shape, but shows promise of
having full SPDY support soon. Parties interested in SPDY are encouraged
to help with the development on this plugin.

Server developers will be there, and we look forward to meet many of our
users.


Releases
========

Three releases have been made since the last status report:

   3.2.0           - Our latest, greatest stable release
   3.0.5           - Patch release for our 3.0.x stable release
   3.1.4           - The final development release before 3.2.0.

A press announcement was made for the v3.2.0 release, for more details see

 https://blogs.apache.org/foundation/entry/media_alert_the_apache_software2

Many thanks to Sally and the PR team for helping us with this milestone
release. A year in the making, v3.2.0 fixes hundreds of bugs and adds many
significant new features.

Development on the v3.3.0 branch has begun already, and we will use the
OSCON sessions to work on several interesting new projects. Of particular
interest is the new Lua plugin, which will (hopefully) make it into either
v3.3.0 or v3.3.1.

Three new committers and PMC members were added since the last report, and
we're very excited with our developer community growth. The mailing lists
are seeing somewhat less growth than normal, the current tallies are:

 users@   - 259 subscribers (up 7% since last report)
 dev@     - 187 subscribers (up 7% since last report)

The community dealt with a security incident, CVE 2012-0256, which led to
the release of v3.0.4 and v3.1.3. Everything went very well, and it showed
that our process for dealing with security incidents is solid.

The Apache Traffic Server community volunteered to participate in the git
trials. As of 1/28 we are fully migrated to the new git infrastructure.
So far, it's been a good experience, with an expected hurdle of the steep
learning curve of git. The infrastructure team have been tremendously
helpful getting everything configured, and minor issues resolved.


Releases
========

Four releases have been made since the last status report:

 3.0.3 and 3.0.4 - New stable releases.
 3.1.2 and 3.1.3 - Development releases.

Primary focus right now includes

 * Stability and bug fixes, without performance regressions
 * Finishing up for a v3.2 release in April - May time frame

Many interesting features have been added since v3.0, including SNI and
NPN support for TLS. NPN is an enabler for developing a SPDY plugin for
example. Full IPv6 support is also completed. Many performance
improvements have been made, including better connection pooling. A number
of stable plugins are now included with the main software distribution,
and will be part of the next stable release.

In total, over 200 bugs, improvements and new features have been fixed
since v3.0.

 users@   - 243 subscribers (up 15% since last report)
 dev@     - 175 subscribers (up 11% since last report)

Three presentations related to Apache Traffic Server were given in the
last quarter: two at ApacheCon 2011 (Vancouver), and one at Usenix LISA
(Boston). We're planning a Feathercast session in the near future.


Releases
========

Two releases have been made since the last status report:

 3.0.2 - The second stable release update on the 3.0 branch
 3.1.1 - Additional trunk development towards v3.2.

Primary focus right now includes

 * Stability and bug fixes, without performance regressions
 * Full IPv6
 * Improvements related to SSL and addition of features such as SNI and
   NPN, and public APIs related to such features.
 * Continued improvements and additions to the plugin APIs.


The v3.2 release is delayed, probably close to 3 months later than we had
initially expected (and hoped for). v3.1.2 is almost ready for release,
and will be followed by at least a v3.1.3 and most likely a v3.1.4
release. The new goal is for a v3.2 release sometime in Q1 of 2012.

There are no issues that needs the boards attention.


Community
=========

Lian Zhang ("mohan_zl") and William Bardwell have joined the community as
committers and PMC members. Both are great additions, welcome! Activity on
mailing lists is healthy, and subscriptions continue to grow:

 users@   - 210 subscribers (up 13%)
 dev@     - 158 subscribers (up 11%)

Three presentations are scheduled for November and December: Two for
ApacheCon 2011 (Vancouver), and one for Usenix LISA (Boston)


Releases
========

Two releases have been made since the last status report:

 3.0.1 - Our first stable update to the 3.0 release
 3.1.0 - Our first development release


We're moving steadily towards both a 3.0.2 release, and a v3.2 release
later this year, or possibly early next year. The goal is to try to keep
up with frequent releases (monthly) as well as major releases on a
rough 6 month schedule.

The Apache Traffic Server community is very happy to announce the addition
of Zhao Yongming as a committer. Zhao is a hero on mailing lists, bugs,
patches and all other community activities.

Activity on mailing lists and Jira tickets continue to increase. Our
mailing lists are now reaching well over 100 users and contributors each:

 users@  - 186 subscribers
 dev@    - 142 subscribers


Three Traffic Server presentations are scheduled so far for 2011. Two for
ApacheCon 2011, and one for OSCON 2011. We're looking forward to meet and
talk about our projects and software.


Releases
========

The community is incredibly excited to announce our first stable release
in over a year: Apache Traffic Server v3.0.0 was released June 14 2011. We
would also like to thank the PR group for coordinating a press release for
this occasion. We got some significant media attention for our 3.0.0
release.

The old 2.0.x branch is being phased out, and instead we will focus our
efforts on the 3.0.x stable branch, as well as the bleeding edge
trunk. Igor Galic is the release manager for the 3.0.x branch. Going
forward, the community is planning on at least two stable major releases
per year (6 months schedule) as well as patch releases on the stable
branch.

Buildbots are setup for all major platforms, and now also includes builds
for the 3.0.x release branch. Many thanks to the infra-ops team for
supporting our CI infrastructure, it's truly invaluable.


Branding
========

We believe the project has completed all the Branding requirements.

Community
=========

Activity in the community has slowed down a little bit, but a couple
of new contributors have emerged. Overall, the community seems healthy
and we expect to add a few new committers in the next quarter.

Documentation efforts are well underway, migrating all our docs (and
eventually site) to use the new Apache CMS.

A presentation on Apache Traffic Server was accepted to the "Russian
Internet Technologies" conference, to be held in April 2011.


Releases
========

The community has produced two releases since our last report:

 v2.1.6 - Major plugin API improvements and updates
 v2.1.7 - Bug fixes primarily to improve cache efficiency

The v2.1.6 once again breaks compatibility with previous releases, as
is our intended goal with the v2.1.x release cycle. v3.0 will be the
next stable release, where existing APIs and ABIs are frozen.


Branding
========

We believe the project has completed the Branding requirements, the
final piece was to add a DOAP file (done).

Jim asked if Shane needed help in reviewing branding compliance after a project reports completion. Shane would like volunteers to help in this task.

Community
=========

Igor Galic has joined the Traffic Server PMC. Activity on mailing lists
is very good, and the community is still seeing a slow, but healthy,
growth. Several community members are actively working towards including
Apache Traffic Server in various Linux distributions.


Releases
========

The community has produced two releases since our last report:

 v2.1.4 - Primarily a large bug fix release
 v2.1.5 - Many Bug fixes and several new features (see below)


Version 2.1.5 adds several new interesting features, including

 - WCCP v2 (experimental)
 - Per transaction overridable configurations
 - IPv6 has finally landed (for client connections)
 - Much better (consistent) 64-bit support, particularly in the plugin
   SDK APIs.

Some of the changes made in the v2.1.5 (and upcoming v2.1.6) release makes
it incompatible with earlier releases. Therefore, the community has
decided that the next major, stable release will be v3.0. The expectation
is that we'll do at least one more developer release (v2.1.6) before v3.0.

Community
=========

The community has added one new committer since our last report, Igor
Galic has joined as a committer. We are seeing continued increase in
mailing list traffic as well as IRC chat room.

Apache Traffic Server was presented at OSCON 2010.  We got some very
positive feedback about the software and the progress we're making with
our community building efforts.

A proposal for a Bylaw is being developed, and discussed on the dev@
mailing list.


Releases
========

We have made three releases since the last report:

 v2.0.1 - Primary a security release, to improve DNS resilience.
 v2.1.2 - Same DNS fixes, and a number of other improvements.
 v2.1.3 - Fixes for the cache corruptions introduced earlier.

v2.1.4 is expected to be released soon, which we hope will be the final
release before the next stable release, v2.2. Detailed descriptions of
all releases are available on our website.

Finally, we are very excited to announce that support for intercepting
(aka transparent) proxy has landed on trunk. This is currently only
supported on the Linux platforms.

21 Jul 2010 [Leif Hedstrom / Roy]

The TS community is continuing work on closing all new feature
requests and bugs for a v2.2 release. No date has been set for this
release, but we are still aiming for a "late summer" target. No
other releases have been made in the last month.

The Traffic Server community is pleased to report the addition of
two new committers and PMC members this month! The community is
vibrant, and we see a steady increase in interest and attention from
both users and developers.

Our CI infrastructure is continuously improving, with additions of
Solaris and Fedora Core buildbots. This is in addition to our
existing Ubuntu and FreeBSD builds. Props to infra ops for providing
these critical services!

Apache Traffic Server was presented at Velocity 2010, and another
presentation is planned for OSCon 2010.

16 Jun 2010 [Leif Hedstrom / Shane]

The Traffic Server community has released our first two development
releases, TS v2.1.0 and v2.1.1. These releases includes a number of
improvements, and feature additions:

* Major performance improvements in most layers, increasing throughput by up
 to 2x in some benchmarks.
* Increased cache capacity, we now support up to 0.5PB per disk spindle. A
 new RAM cache algorithm is also added.
* Support for most Unix flavors, including FreeBSD, MacOSX and Solaris.
* Completely new, flexible configuration layout, simplifying the build and
 packaging task for binary distributions.
* Improved 64-bit support.

The project is on track for a late summer / early fall release of v2.2.0,
which will probably be the next public release (there is no immediate need
for a v2.0.x release). This schedule will be adjusted as necessary though.

The community is continuing to see an increase in activity, with questions,
bugs and patches from several new (and returning) participants. At least one
new committer is expected to join the team in the next few weeks.

There are no outstanding issues with our transition from Incubator to TLP.

19 May 2010 [Leif Hedstrom / Brian]

This is the first report for Apache Traffic Server since our graduation
from the Incubator in April 2010. Working with the Infra-ops team, we have
successfully moved all our resources out of the incubator area, and into
the trafficserver.apache.org domain.  This includes our new web site, at
http://trafficserver.apache.org/.

The community has released the first official Apache Traffic Server
release, v2.0.0. This release is available from the dist mirrors, in the
appropriate trafficserver area. The community has also grown with the
addition of Jason Giedymin as a new committer.

Work is in progress to release the first developer release (v2.1.0), the
goal is to have this completed before end of May. In parallel, we are
making fixes to the 2.0.0 release branch, in preparation for our first
bug-fix release (v2.0.1).

This last month, the team has worked hard on code cleanup, preparing the
code for submission into the Incubator SVN server. We still have some
cleanup to do, but there is light at the end of the tunnel. Traffic Server
is having a Meetup at ApacheCon, Tuesday night, where we will present our
progress, as well as give an overview of the code architecture, and typical
use case scenarios for TS. Our goal is of course to be done with the code
cleanup, and SVN migration, well before ApacheCon.
