Weex is a framework for building Mobile cross-platform high performance UI.

Weex has been incubating since 2016-11-30.

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

 1. Move the whole workflow and infra into Apache (not the codebase only).
 2. Develop more contributors and committers.
 3. Clear the ICLA issues.

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

 No

How has the community developed since the last report?

 * 1,510 stars and 229 forks in our new Apache repo in GitHub.
 * 600+ mails in dev channel
 * Developed one new committer: Yuan Shen

How has the project developed since the last report?

 * Enhanced accessibility
 * Supported iPad screen
 * Supported more features like: "waterfall" component, prefetch,
   "expression binding", box-shadow, etc.

How would you assess the podling's maturity?
Please feel free to add your own commentary.

    Comments: The Shepherd's comments fully resonate with how I feel. The
    progress in 'getting it' is slow, and I have also asked privately how
    people know what to work on, as I suspect that this is happening at
    work, conf calls, or other means. I have been considering asking the
    IPMC to put the code repository in read-only to get people to wake up.
    There is a release attempt going on right now, and that has triggered a
    little bit more open communications, but it is far from acceptable. Dev
    work is remarkably strong, but community development is weak, which I
    see as signs of a corporate-driven project.

IPMC/Shepherd notes:

 ptgoetz: The Weex community has shown some friction against adopting the
          Apache Way. Luckily there is one highly engaged mentor very actively
          nudging the community in the right direction. My concern is that
          other mentors have not engaged (no sign-offs to date), and if the
          primary mentor disappears for any length of time it could pose a
          problem. I'd like to see at least one more engaged mentor for a
          podling trying to develop its initial Apache "sea legs."

 johndament: The amount of private list email vs dev list email is a bit
             concerning.  Niclas has been doing a great job helping the
             podling move along, but without major changes I suspect
             it will be difficult for them to progress forward.

Weex is a framework for building Mobile cross-platform high performance UI.

Weex has been incubating since 2016-11-30.

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

 1. Weex codebase has been migrated to Apache git repo.
 2. Weex website has been deployed to https://weex.incubator.apache.org/ in gitpubsub way.
 3. Made some guide for users and developers to Apache.

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

 No

How has the community developed since the last report?

 * Just a beginning in Apache.
 * 71 stars and 14 forks in our new Apache repo in GitHub.
 * Notice: We have stopped committing code to the old repo since Feb 24 2017
   but there are still a lot of activities which need to be migrated here.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 * Weex codebase has been migrated to Apache git repo.
 * Travis-ci enabled for our new repo above.
 * Weex website has been deployed to https://weex.incubator.apache.org/ in
   gitpubsub way.
 * JIRA & Confluence space ready.

    Comments:

      The project from a technical point of view is doing well. I am trying
      to get the participants really grok TheApacheWay, as there is still too
      much "corporate think" in the project, and things are done seemingly
      randomly. The GitHub workflow is also something that I worry about,
      since it makes the mailing list look like a commit log and not really a
      community discussion forum. There is some who listens and trying to get
      their colleagues to understand. This doesn't seem to be a language
      (Chinese) issue as much as a GitHub culture issue. These guys love
      GitHub issues and pull requests. But I am hopeful we will get there.

How has the project developed since the last report?

 Since our Apache code repository haven’t been setup, the project have not
 been developed in Apache Way yet. But our pre-Apache development process

 soon as possible.

Shepherd/Mentor notes:

 Niclas Hedhman:

   The development on the previous GitHub project is progressing at high
   speed. But we have an understanding that moving to ASF repos is of the
   highest importance for the next month.
