Tuweni

19 Aug 2020

Tuweni is a set of libraries and other tools to aid development of
blockchain and other decentralized software in Java and other JVM languages.

Tuweni has been incubating since 2019-03-25.

### Three most important unfinished issues to address before graduating:

 1. Finish export notice for cryptographic elements
 2. Vote in a few more committers
 3. Keep release pace and adoption

### Are there any issues that the IPMC or ASF Board need to be aware of?
 No issues to report at this time.

### How has the community developed since the last report?
 We are seeing a few contributions in the bug reports and pull
 requests offered on the repository. The project is starting to
 gain good traction.

 We have seen adoption of the project downstream and a couple
 of fixes contributed as direct result.

### How has the project developed since the last report?

 We voted 1.1.0, with a set of new features.
 The roadmap is on Github and more accessible.
 The project is also using Github actions
 to help kick faster CI for pull requests.

 1.0.0 took a long time to release, and it's mostly to blame on
 the difficulty to check the release bits.
 We will need to do better there.

 Yes. At present, there are no issues nor concerns with the Tuweni mark.
 We do not anticipate any issues with the mark regarding graduation.

 anymore.

 The podling is building its community. As part of this board report,
 we moved to using Confluence to draft the report together before
 submitting it.

 We also drafted a set of stories and use cases as a roadmap
 with the goal of using this to also build the community:

### Three most important unfinished issues to address before graduating:

 1. Make a first ASF release.
 2. Build a community of developers and implement project
 governance.
 3. Build a community of users around the project.

### Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
aware of?
 Currently there are no issues that require the involvement of either the
 Incubator PMC or the ASF board.

### How has the community developed since the last report?
 This is the second month of the project incubation. The community is
 still low, even though a couple patches were given by external
 contributors.

 4 initial committers have not joined the PPMC yet by subscribing
 to the private list.

### How has the project developed since the last report?
 The project has attempted to make a release. The second release
 candidate went to a vote with the IPMC and was rejected.
 The committers are now working with the IPMC to make sure
 the NOTICE and LICENSE files are correct.

### IPMC/Shepherd notes:

15 May 2019

Apache Tuweni is a set of libraries and other tools to aid development of
blockchain and other decentralised software in Java and other JVM languages.

Apache Tuweni has been incubating since 2019-03-25.

Three most important unfinished issues to address before graduating:

 1. Grow the community;
 2. Have the works of the project comply with legal requirements of the
 ASF;
 3. Consistently releasing products;

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

 Currently there are no issues that require the involvement of either the
 Incubator PMC or the ASF board.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 As this is the first full month of the project incubating the development
 of the community has been low.

 The project started out with onboarding all parties showing interest
 at the pre-incubation discussions in general@incubator.a.o.

 The project consists of a healthy number of mentors and committers/PPMC
 Members.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 All required INFRA services have been put in play to have the community
 collaborate.

 The project is working on getting more body to the whole set of
 information pages (website, wiki, etc.)

 The project is working on getting its first release product vetted and
 released, and is also working on getting the Incubator clutch details
 up to date.
