On the State of the Feather
One of the great things about Apache is that we're all about the individual (contributor). No one has higher rank/status over another. We're not pay-to-play: no-one can "buy" their way in. Titles are for organizational purposes only: a Vice President of a project doesn't carry any more weight than any other member of a project management committee, for example.
We have diverse backgrounds, opinions, and experiences. Each person has their own preferences and personal style, and we celebrate that. Whilst we do adhere to The Apache Way, we don't impose "corporate conformity" directives on anyone, from our support staff to our executive leadership.
As technologists (and perfectionists), we're trained to look for bugs and are always looking for ways to make things better. And, in keeping with our tenets of openness, our matter-of-fact communication style can sometimes be perceived as too honest and transparent.
In light of that, it might be easy to misinterpret the intent of the State of The Feather presentation by ASF President Sam Ruby at ApacheCon last week:
This isn't another "the ASF is great" presentation where I will talk about how we do things differently/better than others.
Instead, this is a talk where I identify what works and where there is more work that needs to be done.
We've been around for 18 years.
We're continuing to grow by every measure.
We expect to continue to be around.
We expect to continue to grow.
...Perhaps even a bit too fast.
I'm not saying it is easy…
As with any organization managing dramatic business growth, meeting these challenges presents unique opportunities, which, at times, may not be an easy feat with an all-volunteer Board overseeing a nearly all-volunteer organization. Luckily for us, we are well-versed in the mantra "If it isn't hard, it isn't worth doing". With more than 18 years of successfully honing our process of developing, incubating, and shepherding projects under our belt, we are well prepared to overcome operational demands.
The Foundation's ongoing transformation is driven by existing Apache projects and an impressive number of new innovations undergoing incubation. The collective Apache community continues to be highly productive, as summarized every week. Our commitment to rise to the challenge is evident, as demonstrated at ApacheCon. We are proud of our achievements and look forward to sharing our successes in the upcoming Annual Report.

Apache geospatial projects support OGC standards, welcome proposals for ApacheCon
by ASF Members Martin Desruisseaux and Sergio Fernández
The Apache Software Foundation provides support for the Apache Community of Open Source software projects. Various recent Apache projects have a geospatial focus.
One of them, the Spatial Information System (SIS) project, has from the beginning been committed to the implementation of OGC standards. SIS is a free software Java language library for developing geospatial applications. SIS enables efficient representation of coordinates for searching, data clustering, archiving and other spatial functions. The library implements OGC GeoAPI Implementation Specification 3.0 interfaces for use in desktop or server applications.The Apache SIS project recently released version 0.6 of their Java library, with support for ISO 19115 metadata and ISO 19111 referencing by coordinates. This library is among the first implementations of ISO 19162, also published as the OGC Well-known text representation of coordinate reference systems. Apache SIS also provides support for reading and writing Coordinate Reference System (CRS) objects from GML documents and performing map projections with those CRSs. The Apache SIS metadata model has been updated to the ISO 19115-1 standard published in 2015 while maintaining compatibility (as deprecated methods) with the older version published in 2003. This update also integrates the ISO 19115-2 extension for imagery.
Recently developers of Apache Marmotta, an Apache Software Foundation project that provides an open platform for Linked Data, have been working, in collaboration with the Google's Summer of Code 2015, to extend their triplestore (KiWi) to support GeoSPARQL. KiWi is a high performance transactional triplestore backend for Sesame building on top of relational databases. It has optional support for rule-based reasoning and versioning. The new extension to KiWi makes use of the spatial support that PostgreSQL provides with the PostGIS extension, providing a full open source GeoSPARQL stack. This new feature is expected to be shipped in the upcoming 3.4 release, providing new geospatial support for querying data in many of the publishing scenarios in which Marmotta is being used (e.g. tourism).
There is interest on organizing a dedicated geospatial track in the upcoming ApacheCon in Vancouver. The community invites everybody interested in the topic to submit a talk --the Apache page on MarkMail where you can sign in to submit a topic is available at http://markmail.org/message/2gypkad7f5xcjzyy
Martin Desruisseaux, Manager of R&D at Geomatys, was one of the initiators of the OGC GeoAPI project. Sergio Fernández is a software engineer at Redlink GmbH and a lecturer at the University of Applied Sciences of Salzburg. Both are committers and members of the Apache Software Foundation.

The Apache™ Software Foundation to celebrate 15 years of community-led innovation at ApacheCon
FOREST HILL, MD –30 March, 2015– The Apache™ Software Foundation (ASF), the all-volunteer developers, stewards, and incubators of more than 350 Open Source projects and initiatives, announced today its ongoing role in driving innovation over the past 15 years.
Apache products power half the Internet, manage exabytes of data, execute teraflops of operations, store billions of objects in virtually every industry, enhance the lives of countless users and developers worldwide, and can be found in nearly every end-user computing device, from laptops to tablets to mobile phones. Mission-critical applications in financial services, aerospace, publishing, Big Data, Cloud computing, mobile, government, healthcare, research, infrastructure, development frameworks, foundational libraries, and many other categories, depend on Apache software.
The ASF will celebrate 15 years of community-led innovation at ApacheCon, its official conference, 13-17 April 2015 in Austin, Texas.

Building the Next Round of Useful Applications
- Apache Flink™ –the Open Source programming environment and distributed engine for unified batch and stream data analytics is working on Apache Flink v0.9-milestone1, a preview release that gives users access to several new features, including Flink's Table API that enables SQL-like logical queries on distributed datasets, a Machine Learning library on Flink, Gelly (Flink's new library and API for graph processing), a new mode on executing Flink programs on top of Apache Tez, a lot of improvements on running Flink on YARN, a new connector for consuming Apache Kafka event streams, and improvements to defining streaming windows. Even though this is a preview release, Flink 0.9-milestone1 closes more than 200 JIRA tickets.
- Apache Openmeetings™ –the Open Source video conferencing and collaboration platform provides instant messaging, white board, collaborative document editing and other groupware tools using API functions of the Red5 Streaming Server for Remoting and Streaming. OpenMeetings is used in many educational and commercial projects with many plugins for popular E-Learning platforms like Moodle or blog software Wordpress and Drupal. The project will be releasing Openmeetings v3.0.5, the result of 8 years of development, reflecting more than 192 changes and upgrades over the previous major release, including an improved installer, DB configuration process, and user experience.
- Apache Samza™ –an Open Source Big Data distributed stream processing framework used in business intelligence, financial services, healthcare, mobile applications, security, and software development, among other industries. The project is preparing to release Samza v0.9.0, its first release since graduating from the Apache Incubator in January 2015. Samza v0.9.0 reflects 94 changes and upgrades since last release; improvements include upgrading Kafka producer, adding streaming log appender, having more integration tests, and improving the overall performance.
- Apache SpamAssassin™ –the #1 Open Source anti-spam platform giving system administrators a filter to classify email and block "spam" (unsolicited bulk email). It uses a robust scoring framework and plug-ins to integrate a wide range of advanced heuristic and statistical analysis tests on email headers and body text. The project is preparing to release SpamAssassin v3.4.1, representing more than a year of development and nearly 500 tweaks, changes, upgrades and bug fixes over the previous release. Highlights include: improved automation to help combat spammers that are abusing new top level domains; tweaks to the SPF support to block more spoofed emails; increased character set normalization to make rules easier to develop and stop spammers from using alternate character sets to bypass tests; continued refinement to the native IPv6 support; and improved Bayesian classification with better debugging and attachment hashing.
- Apache VCL™ –an Open Source system used to dynamically provision and broker remote access to a dedicated compute environment in a self-service model; this compute environment can be as simple as a virtual machine running productivity software to a cluster of machines running data analysis. The project recently released Apache VCL v2.4.1, the result of 11 years of development, and reflects more than 700 changes and upgrades over the previous major release. Apache VCL v2.4.1 includes an installer, support for Network Address Translation, initial support for Openstack, and many general improvements. Apache VCL also provisions physical machines using xCAT and virtual machines on VMWare and KVM hypervisors using native commands. Future releases will include Docker, Hyper-V support, and other enhancements. Apache VCL has been successfully deployed in universities around the world as an Open Source Cloud platform.
