aware of?
None


How has the community developed since the last report?
1. Since our last podling report 1.5 months ago (i.e. between Feb 8 & March
28,
   inclusive), we grew our contributors from 375 to 427
2. Since our last podling report 1.5 months ago (i.e. between Feb 8 & March
28,
   inclusive), we resolved 152 pull requests (currently at 2280 closed PRs)
3. Since being accepted into the incubator, the number of companies
officially
   using Apache Airflow has risen from 30 to 149, 17 new from the last
podling
   report 1.5 months ago.


How has the project developed since the last report?

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

  1. Get repo moved to
https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__github.com_apache_incubator-2Decharts&d=DwIFaQ&c=jf_iaSHvJObTbx-siA1ZOg&r=S1_S7Dymu4ZL6g7L21O78VQZ53vEnAyZ-cx37DPYDyo&m=lENLxhvCRDVZx8zDGkdx7OrTqrgobgytGpz41hU3X_4&s=1deTysGxjGfYqaKQmVbFaNL02x4PvgO8K2orgQgnSDc&e=

  2. Get GitHub ID linked and 2FA enabled.
  3. First pushed to

.

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

Currently the setting page of GitHub is not visible to us. There may be a
problem when we need to configure it (e.g.: see if anything goes wrong when
building gh-pages branch) but communication is delayed via email. So we'd
like to ask if it is possible for at least one of us core committers to
have the admin right.

How has the community developed since the last report?

We released the information that ECharts has become a repo of Apache, and
received positive feedback from the community.

How has the project developed since the last report?

None.

     Comments: They are really just getting started now that the repos is
transferred. The mentors are going to need to educate the podling more, but
they have found infra users ML and have asked about how to split up the
email flows. One thing I have noticed about GitBox projects is that it is
harder to understand what is happening in those notifications vs. JIRAs.
(That's just an observation, not sure of the Way yet.
