 due to inactivity;

 NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Apache Wookie
 project is hereby terminated; and be it further

 RESOLVED, that the Attic PMC be and hereby is tasked with
 oversight over the software developed by the Apache Wookie
 Project; and be it further

 RESOLVED, that the office of "Vice President, Apache Wookie is
 hereby terminated; and be it further

Apache Wookie develops software related to implementation of the W3C
Widgets family of specifications.

ISSUES
As mentioned in previous reports, activity in the project has declined and is
now at a minimum with some questions from users and implementers but little on
the development side  and also the community has not grown since 2013. The
reasons for this remain the same, in particular the lack of non-proprietary
adoption of the W3C widget specification. As a result we are currently holding
a vote to move Wookie to the Attic.

RELEASES
Wookie 1.0 was released on 24th February 2014.

ACTIVITY
None recently.

reasons for this remain the same, in particular the lack of non-proprietary
adoption of the W3C widget specification.

FUTURE
Having said that, there have been some new use cases suggested in the
community which have lead to development discussions on the part of the
primary team.  One use case suggestion has been to develop a github link
allowing widgets to be directly imported from github thus facilitating an easy
mechanism to develop and deploy widgets outside of the wookie tree.

15 Oct 2014 [Scott Wilson / Sam]

Apache Wookie develops software related to implementation of the W3C
Widgets family of specifications.

ISSUES
As mentioned in July’s report, activity in the project has declined
dramatically and the community has not grown in the last year or so.  This
trend has continued, though this might have been exacerbated by the summer
period where there is less activity anyway. The reasons for this remain the
same, in particular the lack of non-proprietary adoption of the W3C widget
specification.

If this trend continues the team will give consideration to either moving the
project to the attic or subsuming it into RAVE.

16 Jul 2014 [Scott Wilson / Ross]

Apache Wookie develops software related to implementation of the W3C
Widgets family of specifications.

ISSUES
We haven't really grown our community over the past year, and overall
activity is slowing to a trickle. Partly this is because of problems with
the W3C specification getting wider adoption as the major browser
vendors have all continued to produce competing formats.

Looking forward we may want to consider options including moving
Wookie to the Attic or moving the project to become a sub-project of Rave
if the level of activity continues to decline.

RELEASES
Wookie 1.0 was released on 24th February 2014.

ACTIVITY
Since April we've been working on Wookie 2.0, which is aimed at making
Wookie more modular and easier to integrate into Apache Rave and
other platforms.

RELEASES
Wookie 1.0 was released on 24th February 2014.

ACTIVITY
We've created a new 2.x project in trunk and moved the existing codebase
into a 1.x stable branch. The aim of 2.0 is to modularise the project
structure so its easier for newcomers to develop against,  and to make
the build and deploy process simpler.

ACTIVITY
Activity in Wookie is in four main areas: the W3C Widget Server,
connectors for the server for different programming languages, a
template-based widget creation system, and other supporting
tools. Community members have offered two new supporting tools (a
converter from other widget formats, and a trainer to enhance
functionality in existing widgets) and we're considering the option of
incubating a sub-project for these.

Wookie is a Java server application that allows you to upload and deploy
widgets for your applications. Wookie is based on the W3C Widgets
specification, but widgets can also be included that use extended APIs
such as Google Wave Gadgets and OpenSocial.

Wookie has been incubating since 17th July 2009.

Progress since August 2012:

 - Started monthly release for August
   (version 0.12.0. has been stalled - see below)
 - Progressed graduation process

Next steps:

 - Resume monthly release cycle
 - Complete graduation process

Issues before graduation:

 - none

 The proposal to graduate Wookie as a TLP was sent to board@apache.org on
 31/10/2012 to be resolved at the next meeting.

- Stalled Release

 On 22 August we created the build artifacts for version 0.12.0-incubating,
 in accordance with our monthly release schedule. During the VOTE process
 a question was raised on the subject of the inclusion of Apache Santuario
 XMLSec in wookie.

 See: http://incubator.markmail.org/search/?q=wookie-dev#query:wookie-dev%20list%3Aorg.apache.incubator.wookie-dev%20date%3A201208%20+page:1+mid:hgxuhglq5pmwbs4f+state:results

 It was decided to ask/consult apache legal. At present there has been no
 answer on this matter and therefore the wookie release cycle is stalled.
 We urgently require guidance on this matter, so we can resolve this build
 and consequently resume our release cycle.

Details:

 In our last report we identified a task to increase the frequency of
 releases to help community development, and this has now been achieved.

 We also indicated that we were ready to graduate from incubation. Since
 then we have held a vote on the wookie-dev list to nominate the PMC chair.
 Scott Wilson was the person voted as proposed chair (receiving 6 +1s,
 with no other votes) A JIRA issue has been created
 (https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/WOOKIE-348) for the graduation
 process, which includes references to wookies charter.

Wookie is a Java server application that allows you to upload and deploy
widgets for your applications. Wookie is based on the W3C Widgets
specification, but widgets can also be included that use extended APIs
such as Google Wave Gadgets and OpenSocial.

Wookie has been incubating since 17th July 2009.

Progress since February 2012:

 - 0.9.2 release
 - Hoang Minh Tien added as Committer
 - Matt Franklin added as Mentor
 - Improved release documentation
 - GSoC student project

Next steps:

 - implement new release schedule (aligned with Apache Rave)
 - 0.10.0 release using new release process
 - start graduation process after release
 - ASF Widgets demo

Issues before graduation:

 - none

Details:

In our last report we identified our target for this period was to identify
ways to improve the diversity of the Wookie community.

Since our last report we added a new committer (Tien) and we are now diverse
enough to graduate (6 committers from 4 organisations), although we are still
a small community.

We feel that graduation of the project will also help attract new
contributors, and we will seek approval to graduate during the next
quarter, after the 0.10 release which is imminent.

As well as graduation, we have agreed that having more frequent scheduled
releases, coordinated with Apache Rave may also help with community
development.

Matt Franklin has joined Wookie as a mentor and is active in helping with
this process.

We've also created a lot of detailed documentation on the release process
and are encouraging more committers take a turn at being release manager
to both test the documentation and to spread the experience of doing this
more widely.

Our first release under the new schedule will be 15th May.

Another approach we're (still) looking at is how we can use Wookie to deploy
widgets that relate to ASF processes and activities as a way of raising
awareness and interest; we've done some experiments with Widgets using the
Jira API as a starting point for a demonstrator and we may want to explore
this further.

We also have a GSoC student project with Wookie this year.

specification, but widgets can also be included that use extended APIs
such as Google Wave Gadgets and OpenSocial.

Wookie has been incubating since 17th July 2009

Wookie has a small, reasonably active community, however, the majority of
that activity is focussed around one or two individuals. The main issue we
would like to address before graduation is to ensure we  have more diversity
in our community. However, as it stands we could probably graduate as we meet
the minimum criteria (5 committers from 3 organisations). We recognise that
some IPMC members would suggest graduation at this point might help
accelerate community growth. We intend to discuss this within the community
over the next quarter whilst also seeking to expand our community.

One strategy for this is to reach out to projects and teams already using
Wookie and encourage their developers to contribute back to the community.
We know several projects (both in commercial and academic sectors) that have
been conducting R&D activity using Wookie and we want to make sure we can
bring in both contributions from these projects and also welcome their
developers into our community.

However we feel that Wookie will only really become fully sustainable when
there is more uptake of the W3C Widgets/Native Web Applications
specifications into "real" systems and products. On this front we're active
and visible in W3C, along with PhoneGap/Apache Cordova (incubating) who also
support W3C Widgets (the W3C Native Web Apps Community have a co-chair who
is a Wookie committer and another who is a Cordova committer). Another
strategy has been to support integration in Apache Rave (currently preparing
to graduate) as this is a way to build our user base (and is also a great way
to demo Wookie). Another approach we're looking at is how we can use Wookie
to deploy widgets that relate to ASF processes and activities as a way of
raising awareness and interest; we've done some experiments with Widgets
using the Jira API as a starting point for a demonstrator.

In any case, we can certainly do more to promote Wookie and generate
interest.

Since November 2011:

 - 0.9.1 release
 - Received updated patch for oAuth support from community member
 - Received documentation contribution for packaging Wookie as a portable
   app on a USB stick

Next steps:

 - 0.9.2 release using an improved and simplified release process
 - Developer outreach activity (see above)
 - Improve communication about Wookie
 - ASF Widgets demo

Issues before graduation:

 - build community/expand user base
