Subject: [DRAFT] March 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. 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
- 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.
