May incubator status report for apache nifi

Joe Witt
Hello everyone,

It is that time again for us to submit our incubator status report.
I've placed a draft here:

https://wiki.apache.org/incubator/May2015

Please take a look and suggest any edits you'd like to see.

And you can also see the full text here:
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
NiFi

NiFi is a dataflow system based on the concepts of flow-based programming.

NiFi has been incubating since 2014-11-24.

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

  1. Continue to grow the community and support the new user base
  2. Establish rhythm for releases and improve documentation and procedures
  3. Provide a clear and expedient process for code contribution and review

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

  Nothing we wish to raise at this time.

How has the community developed since the last report?

  - We have a new PPMC member - Aldrin Piri.
  - We completed our second release on March 17 2015.
  - Two talks were given at ApacheCon NA 2015 featuring Apache NiFi (incubating)
  - The first Apache NiFi meetup was held in the Baltimore/Washington area.
  - The project has code contributions from more than 25 people.
  - The mailing lists are quite active with developer questions and an
increasing amount of user focused questions.  The dev list has 118
registered addresses.  Commits has 30 and our brand
  new list 'users' has 20 and was established in mid April.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  - We have produced our second release within the Apache Incubator.
  - We are in the closing stages of our third release and includes bug
fixes, new features, and improved documentation with significant
representation of contribution outside of the PPMC.

Date of last release:

  2015-03-16

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?

  2015-03-17

This might be covered by your "#2 Establish rhythm for releases and improve
documentation and procedures" but one thing that I'd like to specifically
bring attention to is the user experience. I'd like to (selfishly) suggest
that the users are the most important part of the community. We've started
seeing questions come up regarding upgrades, and soon I expect questions
about compatibility. This might be a good time to start thinking about what
kind of guarantees we can/ought provide for a nar-bundle built against
version X working with version Y, etc. Documenting your expectations is
helpful. :)

You all look like you are doing a great job of growing the developer
community, keep on it!
