The Oracle legal organization has taken the donation very seriously indeed,
for which one is really grateful. Simply pointing to a repository of files
and saying 'here, we have no exact idea what's in there, let's give it to
Apache' is not the Oracle way, let's say. :-)

The process for the 1st code donation has been complete for a while, though
there's been quite a bit of back and forth on specific parts of the code
and the related provenance of that code. That has taken quite some time too.

But there is really good news on progress -- yesterday the Apache license
agreement and CCLA have been made available for internal review, for the
first time. That means there is agreement from all sides in terms of the
content of the 1st code donation and that now only the documents (the
Apache license agreement and CCLA) themselves need to be reviewed, prior to
them being signed.

At the same time, over the past months, the code audit for the 2nd code
donation (i.e., the 1st code donation is focused on the Java SE tools) and
the 2nd code donation is focused on the Java EE tools and more, e.g.,
C/C++, Groovy, etc) has been going on in parallel. Good progress is being
made in this area, especially now that we know what the process and
requirements were for the 1st code donation.

Hope that gives an indication of where things are.

Thanks for the heads-up Geertjan!
This is good news indeed, hopefully the review of the AL and CCLA will go
well and quickly then.

Please keep us posted on any news as well as on the progress for the 2nd code
I'll sign off the PPMC report and add a remark on the above as well.

Regards, Ate

Thanks for the report Geertjan.

I'm OK with signing off the report, but also worried about the lack of
progress with the code donation.
I've been away on holiday for a few weeks and I assume the same for others,
but I can't find any status update nor clarity what goes on, or what is
us from moving forward, since several months.

Last thing I can find is a comment by Geertjan on INFRA-14374 [1] from
June 23rd
indicating we're still waiting on an 'go' from Oracle.
Although "a" donation zip [2] seems to have been prepared since June 20th?

Geertjan, or anyone else from Oracle, can you provide an updated status,
let us know what is holding up the donation, and if maybe others from
Oracle, ASF/mentors if needed, can do to push this forward ASAP?

Thanks, Ate

OK, will do it. In short, the code is still in process in terms of being
delivered from Oracle.

I wanted to see what's going on with Netbeans.  While I see some on list
traffic, the fact that no report's been filed is a bit of an issue.
wanted to remind you that the report is in fact due on Wednesday, as you
missed last month's report.

Dear podling,

This email was sent by an automated system on behalf of the Apache
Incubator PMC. It is an initial reminder to give you plenty of time to
prepare your quarterly board report.

The board meeting is scheduled for Wed, 16 August 2017, 10:30 am PDT.
The report for your podling will form a part of the Incubator PMC
report. The Incubator PMC requires your report to be submitted 2 weeks
before the board meeting, to allow sufficient time for review and
submission (Wed, August 02).

Please submit your report with sufficient time to allow the Incubator
PMC, and subsequently board members to review and digest. Again, the
very latest you should submit your report is 2 weeks prior to the board


The Apache Incubator PMC

Submitting your Report


Your report should contain the following:

*   Your project name
*   A brief description of your project, which assumes no knowledge of
      the project or necessarily of its field
*   A list of the three most important issues to address in the move
      towards graduation.
*   Any issues that the Incubator PMC or ASF Board might wish/need to
      aware of
*   How has the community developed since the last report
*   How has the project developed since the last report.
*   How does the podling rate their own maturity.

This should be appended to the Incubator Wiki page at:


Note: This is manually populated. You may need to wait a little before
this page is created from a template.


Mentors should review reports for their project(s) and sign them off on
the Incubator wiki page. Signing off reports shows that you are
following the project - projects that are not signed may raise alarms
for the Incubator PMC.
