Daffodil has been incubating since 2017-08-27. Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation: 1. Complete first Apache release as an Incubator 2. Broaden base of contributors and build the community (e.g. work with other Apache projects where Daffodil could provide extra functionality) 3. Improve documentation on setting up a development environment to ease the addition of new developers Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be aware of? - Outstanding legal issue regarding Open Grid Forum document inclusion in Daffodil (LEGAL-369) How has the community developed since the last report? - No new committers. However, we have had activity from a couple outside users on the mailing lists asking about Daffodil capabilities/usage How has the project developed since the last report? - All SGA/CLAs have been submitted (from Tresys, IBM, and NCSA), all code relicensed to ASF, and package namespace switched to org.apache.daffodil - Development pace has continued without any notable issues - The first release candidates was created in February 2017. However, bugs were found that required an rc2 release. Those issues were resolved, but issues related to the LICENSE and NOTICE files were raised in the rc2 release. This is expected to require an rc3 release, planned to start voting in early March. How would you assess the podling's maturity? Please feel free to add your own commentary.
