[DRAFT] June 2018 Daffodil Podling Report


Apache Daffodil is an implementation of the Data Format Description
Language (DFDL) used to convert between fixed format data and
XML/JSON.

Daffodil has been incubating since 2017-08-27.

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

  1. Increase community growth and participation
  2. Establish a frequent release schedule
  3. Working other Apache projects where Daffodil could provided extra
     functionality

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

- None, previous legal issues regarding Open Grid Forum license were
  clarified (LEGAL-369)

How has the community developed since the last report?

- Starting community building, including conversations on the user@
  and dev@ lists from a handful of users requesting some support and
  information on Daffodil for DFDL schema creation.
- Mike Beckerle was accepted for a talk on Daffodil at ApacheCon
- Received two bug fix contributions from an outside user, who was
  able to spin up and make contributions quickly

How has the project developed since the last report?

- Created our first release as an Apache incubator
- All website and wiki documentation is up to date
- Had 14 commits from 5 different developers over the past three months
- Still under active development, though upcoming features are
  large are take time to implement

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