the results of large scale testing are in progress. Bug fixes are still
applied to 1.0, as well as new functionality to allow migration from 1.0 to
2.0.

Issues

Changes to Apache Git have hampered our development process. Specifically, we
create a feature branch per JIRA ticket.  This ticket is then reviewed in a
pull request by 1 or more committers, and then accepted into master.  Without
the ability to delete these branches after a merge, our repository is
increasing in obsolete branches.  This also causes issues when a branch is
improperly named on creation.

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

 1. Usergrid 1.0.2 release
 2. Continue to discuss graduation
 3. Continue to grow community

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

   I eagerly look forward to Usergrid's graduation from the incubator.

22 Apr 2015

Usergrid is Backend-as-a-Service (BaaS) composed of an integrated database
(Cassandra), application layer and client tier with SDKs for developers.

Usergrid has been incubating since 2013-10-03.

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

 1. Continue to grow the Usergrid Incubating Community
 2. Clarify the SGA for Apache Usergrid Incubating codebase
 3. Drive towards another Usergrid incubating release

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

 The Usergrid community has been working to clarify the status of the SGA
 for the Usergrid codebase. The original SGA listed a GitHub repo that did
 not include all of the source code that Apigee intended to grant. We
 are preparing a new SGA that will cover all code that is currently part of
 the project.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 In short, the Usergrid incubating community is healthy with loads of
 mailing list and development traffic from a growing community. Usergrid
 continues to see new community members making themselves known on the
 mailing lists.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 Development is very dynamic. The codebase is being actively developed with
 correspondence taking place on the Usergrid JIRA instance. The processes
 and workflows for development are pretty solid now.

of?

 No.

How has the community developed since the last report?

 We added a couple of new committers: Alex Muramoto, Ryan Bridges and John
 Ament.  We are working on our second release from the Incubator, Usergrid
 1.0.1 and are creating release candidates now for voting.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 Much work has been done in the "two-dot-o" version of Usergrid with a new
 persistence and query engine. Bugs have been fixed in the master branch
 and it is now being prepared for a Usergrid 1.0.1 release.

Usergrid is Backend-as-a-Service (BaaS) composed of an integrated database
(Cassandra), application layer and client tier with SDKs for developers.

Usergrid has been incubating since 2013-10-03.

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

 1. Make another incubating release (most likely 1.1)
 2. Continue to grow the Usergrid community
 3. Document and streamline the Usergrid release process

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?
The community continues to develop in a positive fashion.  Usergrid was
represented (indirectly) at this years CassandraSummit in San Francisco.
Various mentions of UG at that event, amongst the other community events which
the UG PPMC put together are building the user base.  The #usergrid IRC
channel continues to see people come and go with people being directed to the
mailing lists whenever issues cannot be addressed in a more direct/instant
manner.

How has the project developed since the last report?
The project has come on leaps and bounds post release of Usergrid 1.0
(incubating).  The development (PPMC) team worked very well together, and with
the IPMC to ensure that the 1.0 release went smoothly. The release procedure
was slightly longer than we would have liked however lessons have been learned
and positives have been taken from the process as a whole.  Procedural nuances
have been ironed out and we look forward to a 1.1 release in the near future.
In addition we have been documenting material on the Usergrid Incubation
status page.  http://incubator.apache.org/projects/usergrid.html
Final note, KUDOS to Rod and Dave from the Usergrid PPMC who acted as release
managers.

Usergrid is Backend-as-a-Service (BaaS) composed of an integrated database
(Cassandra), application layer and client tier with SDKs for developers.

Usergrid has been incubating since 2013-10-03.

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

  1. Obtain Usergrid release 1.0
  2. Resolve relationship with Apache in general
  3. Continue to grow community

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

Recently, Usergrid has been through the wars with regards to its
development ethos, entire development process and most importantly
code commit process. The latter has been an issue which resulted in one
particular Apache Member having his account temporarily disabled, and
a new contributor workflow that the project believes does satisfy board
and infrastructure requirements:

    https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/usergrid/Usergrid+Contribution+Workflow

It has not been an easy month for Usergrid however the community spirit is
higher than it ever has been and the community is in a strong position
to meet Incubator criteria. An extremely positive note here is that
the Usergrid community has been actively expanding throughout the above
process. This is something we can all learn from.

How has the community developed since the last report?

The Usergrid community has been growing steadily and very encouragingly
based on community VOTE's. We welcome contributions to Usergrid. Most
importantly, many members of the existing Usergrid PPMC have been
(extremely) actively involved in Usergrid's dissemination and expansion.

 * 74 subscribed to dev@

How has the project developed since the last report?

Many, many commits. Usergrid is very healthy with regards to its
development. What needs to be addressed however is the following:

 * Resolve commit process... MAJOR
 * Reflect commit messages to commit@

Date of last release:

  Usergrid (incubating) has not made an official release as of date. The
  community areactively working towards a release for 1.0.

 Usergrid code. The community is however aware of this and are working
 towards suitable replacement(s).

Usergrid is an open-source Backend-as-a-Service (“BaaS” or “mBaaS”) composed
of an integrated distributed NoSQL database, application layer and client
tier with SDKs for developers looking to rapidly build web and/or mobile
applications.

Usergrid has been incubating since 2013-10-03.

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