Whimsy

16 Aug 2017 [Sam Ruby / Jim]

## Description:
  Tools that help automate various administrative tasks or information lookup
  activities

## Issues:
  Four tools (board/agenda, secretary/workbench, roster, and test/icla) make
  use of React.js, which has recently been reclassified as Category X by
  Legal Affairs.  It would be helpful if VP Legal Affairs and/or the ASF Board
  reach out to Facebook to help convince them to relicense React.JS, just like
  they did with RocksDB.

## Health report:
  - John D Ament was added as a committer this month.

  The current status is that we continue to have more than adequate oversight,
  we now have two to three active committers, and two to four occasional
  committers.

## Development:
 - Worked closely with the infrastructure team to update and modernize a
   a number of tools including: new account requests, roster, and mailing list
   requests.  These tools are now all hosted on whimsy's VM.

 - Progress continues towards enabling all PMC members (as well as all
   ASF members) to maintain PMC rosters (something that already is supported
   for PPMC rosters).

 - Significant improvement was made to the podling roster pages.

 - Stylistic improvments continue.

 - Deployment is now triggered by gitpubsub; speeding development.

 - The final three applications were migrated to the new machine, and the
   process of decomissioning whimsy-vm3 has begun.

## PMC and committer base:
  - Currently 10 committers, all on the PMC.
  - Last addition: Thu Jun 2017 (John D. Ament)

17 May 2017 [Sam Ruby / Brett]

## Description:
 Tools that help automate various administrative tasks or information lookup
 activities

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

## GitHub experiment:
 - No issues to report.  The Whimsy project continues to operate with GitHub
   defacto acting as master.  Unless there is a request to continue with
   this information, my plans are to cease reporting separately on this
   unless there is something worth mentioning.

## Health report:
 - Shane became active this quarter in a big way.  Contributions ran the
   gamut from documentation to styling to minor changes to existing tools
   to addition to library functions to entirely new tools.

   So the current status is that we continue to have more than adequate
   oversight, we now have three active committers, and two to three occasional
   committers.

## Development:
 - The whimsy site was moved to a new machine, with a new version of the
   operating system, new version of Ruby, and all of the various upgrades
   this implies.  Three tools (board/agenda, roster, and secretary/workbench)
   are being held back on older versions of JavaScript dependencies pending
   further testing.

 - PMC site (whimsical.apache.org) now has content, and many of the tools
   on the whimsy site now have a more common look and feel.

 - New tool has been created to scan all of the committee (PMC and otherwise)
   sites for compliance with a number of requirements and requests.
   https://whimsy.apache.org/site/

 - New tools being explored: one to scan mailing lists and to make a
   public version of organization chart.

## PMC and committer base:
  - Currently 9 committers, all on the PMC.
  - Last addition was Craig L Russell in December of 2015.

## Description:

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

## GitHub experiment:
 - No issues to report.  The Whimsy project continues to operate with GitHub
   defacto acting as master.

## Health report:
 - While there remains sufficient oversight, there has been no progress this
   quarter in growing a development community.

## Development:
 - Function was added to the roster tool to enable members of a podling to
   maintain their own roster.  Future plans include extending this to all
   PMCs.  Code was also added to extract this data for use by the phone book
   and other applications.

 - Improved checks were made to prevent reserved ids from being requested
   by the account request tool.

## PMC and committer base:
  - Currently 9 committers, all on the PMC.
  - Last addition was Craig L Russell in December of 2015.

16 Nov 2016 [Sam Ruby / Bertrand]

## Description:
 Tools that help automate various administrative tasks or information lookup
 activities

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

## GitHub experiment:
 - No issues to report.  Commits are pushed to GitHub and mirrored to
   ASF hardware and push logs are maintained.  Net: while the infrastructure
   is in place to enable pushing to the ASF clone, the Whimsy project is
   defacto operating with GitHub as master.

## Health report:
 - While there remains sufficient oversight, and three active committers,
   there has been no progress this quarter in growing a development community.

## Development:
 - In order to address board agenda lockups during board meetings, synchronous
   server sent events were replaced with an asynchronous and event driven
   websocket implementation.  Further improvements were made this month to
   catch missing updates which required manual refreshes to see.

 - Replaced secretary workbench with a more maintainable implementation; one
   that also relieves the infrastructure team from debugging and cleaning up
   after a mal-formed email or a wedged svn working copy required attention.
   This change also enabled a number of performance improvements and some
   minor functionality improvements (e.g. more tailored email messages).

## PMC and committer base:
  - Currently 9 committers, all on the PMC.
  - Last addition was Craig L Russell in December of 2015.

17 Aug 2016 [Sam Ruby / Chris]

## Description:
 Tools that help automate various administrative tasks or information lookup
 activities

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

## GitHub experiment:
 - No issues to report

## Activity:
 - Whimsy moved to a new VM to avoid SVN, LDAP, and proxy issues thought to
   be related to the server network; SVN and LDAP problems remain though
   proxy issues have been resolved due to the fact that whimsy-vm3 is no
   longer behind a proxy.
 - 3 minor patches were integrated during this month from ASF members who
   are not on the PMC.

## Health report:
 - While there remains sufficient oversight, there has been little progress
   this quarter in growing a development community.

## PMC changes:

 - Currently 9 PMC members.
 - No new PMC members added in the last 3 months
 - One PMC member left last month.
 - Last PMC addition was Craig L Russell on Sun Dec 13 2015

## Committer base changes:

 - Currently 9 committers.
 - No new committers added in the last 3 months
 - Last committer addition was Craig L Russell at Mon Dec 14 2015

## Releases:

 - Code development is operating under a continuous deployment model

## Mailing list activity:

email volume continues to drop.

 - dev@whimsical.apache.org:
    - 20 subscribers (up 1 in the last 3 months):
    - 299 emails sent to list (602 in previous quarter)

 - notifications@whimsical.apache.org:
    - 6 subscribers (up 0 in the last 3 months):
    - 8039 emails sent to list (404 in previous quarter)

18 May 2016 [Sam Ruby / Shane]

## Description:
 Tools that help automate various administrative tasks or information lookup
 activities

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

  Last month's question as to whether Whimsy reporting should remain
  monthly or go back to quarterly went unanswered; Mark's input was that
  after this month Whimsy should go back to quarterly; Brett kept the
  line indicating that Whimsy is on a monthly schedule in committee-info.txt.

## GitHub experiment:
 - No issues to report

## Activity:
 - Due to persistent networking problems in PNAP; a new vm has been provisioned
   for whimsy.  Cut over to the new VM should happen by the end of the month.
 - Shane noticed that the Whimsy repository didn't have a proper licence
   file in place, a particularly embarrassing oversight given the high
   powered makeup of the PMC.

## Health report:
 - We now have an additional person who has made commits; this time
   to the board agenda tool.  This continues the progress being made
   to build a community around what was once the product of a development
   team of one.

## PMC changes:

 - Currently 9 PMC members.
 - No new PMC members added in the last 3 months
 - One PMC member left last month.
 - Last PMC addition was Craig L Russell on Sun Dec 13 2015

## Committer base changes:

 - Currently 9 committers.
 - No new committers added in the last 3 months
 - Last committer addition was Craig L Russell at Mon Dec 14 2015

## Releases:

 - Code development is operating under a continuous deployment model

## Mailing list activity:

email volume notably lower this month; in part due to notifications being
moved to a separate list.

 - dev@whimsical.apache.org:
    - 18 subscribers (up 1 in the last 3 months):
    - 602 emails sent to list (413 in previous quarter)

 - notifications@whimsical.apache.org:
    - 6 subscribers (up 6 in the last 3 months):
    - 416 emails sent to list (0 in previous quarter)

Will return back to a quarterly schedule.

20 Apr 2016 [Sam Ruby / Isabel]

## Description:
 Tools that help automate various administrative tasks or information lookup
 activities

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

  With the plan to add a second project to the GitHub experiment; should
  Whimsy go back to reporting quarterly?  Or should both report monthly?

## GitHub experiment:
 - One minor glitch (entire PMC briefly removed from GitHub) which was
   promptly addressed and caused no issues
 - Pleased to see the git-dual and matt code added to the repository and
   puppetized.

## Activity:
 - New tools under development: moderationhelper and mirror_check.
 - Improvements to monitoring; e.g., now checks for puppet agent being down
   Notices now sent to a separate email list.
 - Roster tool can now be used to update members.txt, iclas.txt, LDAP,
   and committee-info.txt.  Plan is to make this a one stop shop for updating
   foundation records.
 - Board agenda tool now show prior month's comments
 - VM upgraded from 2 CPUs w/ 4 GB RAM to 4 CPUs w/ 8 GB RAM

## Health report:
 - Project continues to make progress converting what was primarily a
   single developer effort into a community.  5 separate individuals
   committed changes this month; another indicated an intent to become
   active next month.

## PMC changes:

 - Currently 9 PMC members.
 - No new PMC members added in the last 3 months
 - One PMC member left last month.

 Traffic continues to grow; mostly related to technical questions,
 suggestions  and plans.  In addition to posts by subscribers, pony-poc
 has been used.

Change the Apache Whimsy Project Chair

 WHEREAS, the Board of Directors heretofore appointed Ross Gardler
 (rgardler) to the office of Vice President, Apache Whimsy, and

 WHEREAS, the Board of Directors is in receipt of the resignation of
 Ross Gardler from the office of Vice President, Apache Whimsy, and

 WHEREAS, the Project Management Committee of the Apache Whimsy project
 has chosen to recommend Sam Ruby (rubys) as the successor to the post;

 NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that Ross Gardler is relieved and
 discharged from the duties and responsibilities of the office of Vice
 President, Apache Whimsy, and

 BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that Sam Ruby be and hereby is appointed to the
 office of Vice President, Apache Whimsy, to serve in accordance with
 and subject to the direction of the Board of Directors and the Bylaws
 of the Foundation until death, resignation, retirement, removal or
 disqualification, or until a successor is appointed.

 Special Order 7C, Change the Apache Whimsy Project Chair, was
 approved by Unanimous Vote of the directors present.

16 Mar 2016 [Ross Gardler / Rich]

  1) GitHub experiment has now fully started - bi-directional synchronization
  between an ASF hosted and a GitHub hosted repository is now working,
  thanks to the work of Daniel Gruno.  This provides the potential for a
  tangible question as to how to evaluate the ongoing GitHub experiment:
  if/when the Infrastructure team decides to recommend that allowing other
  projects to make use of this set up, the experiment was a success.  Should
  the infrastructure team decide to recommend that this set-up is no longer
  supported, the experiment is a failure.

2) Manual intervention by the infrastructure team has still proven to be
  required to add new committers to the repository.  Each month we seem
  to get a little closer to making this unnecessary.  There are hopeful
  signs that next month we will have reached this target.

3) Whimsy has moved over to a new Ubuntu 14.04 VM, complete with automatic
  deployment and status monitoring.  The fact that the status monitoring is
  pushing too much information to the mailing list is a known problem, and
  needs resolution.  Much of the work of the past month has been focused on
  'puppetizing' the remaining tools.

4) A lot of time and effort has gone into improving the documentation of how
  to get either individual tools or even the entire whimsy site up and running
  on a developers machine.

5) Additional work was done to address stability issues in the board agenda
  tool.  This is ongoing.

6) The Whimsy roster tool can now be used by PMC chairs to update PMC
  membership and committer lists for their projects.  And by committers to
  update their Spam Assassin score.  While the latter may seem odd, it was a
  direct result of an infrastructure contractor unilaterally reassigning an
  INFRA JIRA to Whimsy without consultation.  See associated discussion item.

7) The Whimsy PMC gets periodic requests from the incubator team that
  curiously seem to die down quickly.    :-(

[report prepared by Sam Ruby]

17 Feb 2016 [Ross Gardler / Sam]

1) GitHub experiment appears to have stalled.  In particular, adding a new
  committer (e.g. Brett) still involves manual intervention by the
  infrastructure team; and there still isn't an Apache hosted clone of
  Whimsy.  None of this is affecting whimsy development, but is the reason
  for monthly board reports.

2) Brett and Craig have succeeded pushing changes to GitHub.  Changes continue
  to be automatically deployed, without human intervention.

3) Primarily due to the deadlock and authentication problems experienced with
  the board agenda tool, that tool has been moved over to whimsy-test.  It's
  internal threading model has been converted to processes, and LDAP failover
  and cache expiration logic has been added.  Sebb has been instrumental in
  this effort.  This may ultimately address the problems that Brett saw with
  missing mail addresses in board reminders.

4) Sebb has moved the Apache phone book over to be based on data produced by
  whimsy.

5) Status monitoring is now implemented, and continues to be refined. It has
  already proven to be helpful.

6) As problems with the current secretary mail process seem to not be as
  prevalent this month, and the move to the new mail system by the
  infrastructure team isn't imminent, work on this has slowed in favor of
  other efforts.

7) Initial code has been roughed in for a replacement for the current LDAP
  Perl scripts used to add committers to a PMC and to modify PMC membership.
  This effort may be ultimately be superseded Syncope.

 Last PMC and committer addition: 14 December 2015
 No releases made (code is using a continuous deployment model)

[report prepared by Sam Ruby]

Whimsy will continue to report monthly at least until the svn/git "experiment" concludes. There is still more data collection required.

20 Jan 2016 [Ross Gardler / Rich]

1) Many/(most?) Whimsy committers are now authorized to push to the GitHub
repository.  MATT is now online, but there appears to still be a manual step
required to identify which GitHub ID is to be associated with your Apache
account.  This presumably will be ironed out over time, and at the moment only
represents a point of confusion, not a stumbling block.

2) In addition to Sam, two committers (Chris and Sebb) have succeeded at
actually pushing to GitHub.  Also two committers (Craig and Sebb) are able to
run individual tools on their own development machines[1]. Their changes are
automatically deployed, without human intervention[2].  Craig is now working
on trying to push a change - this may be complete by the time of the board
meeting.

3) Set up of the whimsy-test VM has begun in earnest.  To the extent humanly
possible, everything is either provisioned through Puppet or deployed
automatically from the GitHub repository[3].

4) Status monitoring is beginning to be roughed in[4].  At the moment, it is a
simple ping endpoint.  This rolls up fined grained status of the various
applications deployed on whimsy, and alerts the infrastructure team when there
is failure.

5) A replacement for the Secretary mail tool is nearing completion.  It should
be considerably more responsive and reliable than the current tool[5], which
required multiple manual cleanup of intermediate svn directories this month.
The hope is that with this version of the tool, Craig will be able to develop,
locally test, and deploy improvements such as adding buttons and tweaking the
content of emails produced.

6) Additional items planned for the next month (or so) include:
 a) Flipping the "big switch" to enable synchronization between GitHub
    and ASF hosted repositories.
 b) Moving the board agenda tool over to what is now called
    whimsy-test.
 c) Changing the DNS so that that what is not whimsy-test will become
    the new whimsy.  The old whimsy will remain around under a new
    name for a few months.

16 Dec 2015 [Ross Gardler / Rich]

## Description:
Whimsy is a set of tools and a website to access them that help automate
various ASF administrative tasks or information lookup activities.

## Issues:
We are currently working with infra to conduct a limited experiment in using
GitHub as our primary development location. This experiment is conditioned
upon several factors:

* This is ONLY available to the Whimsy PMC
* The Whimsy project reports monthly on progress and issues surfaced
* The primary goal is to determine if the ASF can capture and retain (all)
necessary information related to our goals of establishing provenance of any
work performed.

Work is progressing. It is causing some churn for the infra team who are
needing to rework a considerable amount of their existing GitHub support (see
infra report).

The infra team feel that it is necessary to enforce multi-factor
authentication. This has met some (seemingly) mild resistance within the
Whimsy community as it potentially impacts contributors with an existing
GitHub account used in other contexts. This does not impact other projects
using GitHub as a mirror.

## Activity:

Incubator agenda reminders discussion appears to have petered out. Board
agenda reminders discussion never quite got off the ground - at least not on
dev@whimsical; there was a brief discussion on board@

New repository on GitHub: https://github.com/apache/whimsy
a) ASF hosted clone is not yet available
b) whimsical site (via gitpubsub) is not yet set up
c) auto deploy (also via gitpubsub) is not yet set up
d) updated VM (based on Ubuntu 14.04) is available, but set up is not
  yet complete.

Development:
 a) updates to ICLA-lint (clr) and public JSON data (sebb).
 b) board agenda reminders is largely complete (rubys).
 c) exploratory rewrite of secretary mail function has been posted in
    a branch (rubys).

## Health report:
The community remains small and focused, there is active oversight from
numerous PMC members on both the project code and the GitHub experiment.

## PMC and Committer changes:

- Currently 10 committers, all of whom are PMC members.
- Craig L Russell was added on Sun Dec 13 2015

## Releases:

There are no formal releases of Whimsy code, although it is frequently
deployed on ASF hardware.

## Mailing list activity:

- dev@whimsical.apache.org:
- 15 subscribers (up 3 in the last 3 months):
- 282 emails sent to list (100 in previous quarter)

## JIRA activity:

- 22 JIRA tickets created in the last 3 months
- 7 JIRA tickets closed/resolved in the last 3 months

18 Nov 2015 [Ross Gardler / Jim]

## Description:

Whimsy is a collection of applications that run on infrastructure resources to
assist the personal productivity of members of the board and executive staff.

## Summary

After a few false starts the infrastructure for Whimsy is now mostly set up.
SVN is still an issue - see https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-10399.
This has resulted in a proposal to use bidirectional flows to GitHub as the
canonical repository. See Discussion Item B.

The PMC needs to focus on increasing the diversity of contributors to the
project. Recently, Sebb and Craig have begun to make contributions.

## Issues:

See Discussion Item B.

The project source is in a non-standard location in the repository source tree
and mirrored at github.

The infrastructure that Whimsy runs on needs improvement. Infra has some
difficulty supporting the production use of the tool because of its
non-standard deployment; a SLA is not in place for the service; and tracking
performance and responding to issues is difficult.

## Activity:

The project is still mostly the work of a single committer
(thanks Sam), though there is adequate oversight from the PMC.

## PMC changes:

- Currently 9 PMC members.
- Last PMC addition was Sebastian Bazley on Sun Nov 16 2015

## Committer base changes:

- Currently 9 committers.
- Last addition: Sebastian Bazley on Sun Nov 16 2015

## Releases:

No formal release. Project is deployed internally to Apache hardware.

## Mailing list activity:

- dev@whimsical.apache.org:
- 13 subscribers (up 2 in the last 3 months):
- 207 emails sent to list (27 in previous quarter)


## JIRA activity:

- 28 JIRA tickets created in the last 3 months
- 10 JIRA tickets closed/resolved in the last 3 months

16 Sep 2015 [Ross Gardler / Sam]

## Description:
 Whimsy is a site where a set of absolutely unnecessary yet often quite
 handy applications are deployed.

## Activity:
The project is up and running and apart from a chair not coordinating board
reports in a timely manner is functioning well. We are even seeing growth in
the number of dev list subscribers, which is surprising to some given the
nature of the software being produced.

## Health report:
This project is very specific to the ASF and is unlikely to attract
significant interest from outside contributors. Interest in the project is
perhaps higher than we might have expected at this stage. Turning more of that
interest into contributions and issue triage will be useful.

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

## LDAP committee group/Committership changes:

No new additions to the PMC or committer list since TLP created in May
2015.

- Currently 1 committers and 8 LDAP committee group members.
- No new LDAP committee group members added in the last 3 months
- Last LDAP committee group addition was James W. Carman at Wed May 20 2015
- Ross Duncan Gardler was added as a committer on Tue Aug 18 2015

## Releases:

No release have been made and given the nature of the project are unlikely to
be made. However, the live service is updated regularly.

## Mailing list activity:

- dev@whimsical.apache.org:
  - 12 subscribers (up 4 in the last 3 months):
  - 106 emails sent to list (1 in previous quarter)

After some back and forth over the TLP name vs the website name vs the
service name we have settled on whimsy.apache.org for the service,
whimsical.apache.org for the website and whimsy for the TLP name (as per
last months resolution) and all other assoicated infrastrcuture.

Mailing lists have been setup, other infrastructure is in progeress.
