Hi All,

It's that time again. Please review the following Apache Flagon (Incubating) podling report. Please post any comments, concerns in this thread. Reports are due for posting on the IPMC Wiki [1] NLT 2019-10-02.

For convenience, I am posting the report as txt pasted below. However, a .md version of the report can be found on our wiki [2]. Please be sure to review 2019_Q3_FLAGON_report.md.

--Report Text (.md)--

#Apache Flagon (Incubating) `Apache Flagon` is a generalized user behavioral 
logging platform for web pages and thin-client applications

`Apache Flagon` (formerly Apache SensSoft) has been incubating since 2016-07-13

####Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation: 1. Grow the`Apache Flagon` Committer/Contributor/Community Base around our core product Apache UserALE.js (Incubating)
2. Refactor core analytic product`Apache Flagon Distill`, as content driver to 
increase user/committer base
3. Complete the issues highlighted at the`Apache Flagon` Roadmap[1] ####Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be aware of? `Apache Flagon` would like to thank its new Mentors for their enthusiasm and engagement. Where in previous quarters, Flagon had challenges receiving critical mentor guidance through key transitions (e.g., copyright clearance, name change).

Our current mentors-`Lewis McGibbney`,`Dave Meikle`,`Tim Allison`,`Furkan 
Kamaci`-have been extremely helpful in providing guidance, accessible for 
release review, and in product steerage.

####How has the community developed since the last report? The community has:

* continued improving release processes and code base to expedite future 
releases[3,4] * continued to generate a wide user base

* discussed with external parties research applications with university 
research labs in machine learning and social computing

* the community has organically grown with a new contributor, who is 
participating in VOTEs

* the community has begun planning a refactoring of the Distill product which 
will distribute highly desirable user monitoring content and spur community 
growth and adoption
####How has the project developed since the last report? * Completed major 
updates to website and repositories following name change
* Project maturity roadmaps (Wiki) and version release plans (JIRA) continue to 
be maintained.
* JIRA boards continue to be maintained.
* Core product source code for front-end and back-end assets has been steadily 
maintained and modernized.
* Analytical products are being refactored as of the date of this report 
* Continued attention and improvement in Apache Process and Documentation 

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