Wayang

16 Jun 2021

Report was filed, but display is awaiting the approval of the Board minutes.

17 Mar 2021

Wayang is a cross-platform data processing system that aims at decoupling
the business logic of data analytics applications from concrete data
processing platforms, such as Apache Flink or Apache Spark. Hence, it tames
the complexity that arises from the "Cambrian explosion" of novel data
processing platforms that we currently witness.

Wayang has been incubating since 2020-12-16.

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

 1. Educate the new PPMCs to be able to do Apache releases
 2. Do our first Apache release
 3. Grow the community

### Are there any issues that the IPMC or ASF Board need to be aware of?

 Until the moment of this report it was created and didn't have any issue,
 because all the important issues got solved.

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

 In the last month the community did a meeting where they created the most
 important point to be focused on. The main focus points are the creation of
 a Python API, SQL API and maintenance on the Core to be enabled to support
 the new API's. The protocol of that meeting can be found it on dev@ list

 Additional to that the community is searching for more developers that
 can be part of it.

 Also during the last month the issue with the software grant got solved
 and we are waiting for the document to get signed.

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

 The project has moved the codebase to Apache's Git repos as well as
 successfully setup the CI jobs. Also the Website is now up and running.

 The team is finishing the process of renaming the project from Rheem to
 Wayang, and is important to review that everything is placed in the right
 spot.

    Comments:  Seems getting the paperwork done takes a bit longer for
    universities and institues than for "normal" companies, but I'm hopeful
    that we'll sort out the remaining issues till the next report.
