Apache Jackrabbit : Board Report December 2012

[REPORT] Apache Jackrabbit

The Apache Jackrabbit™ content repository is a fully conforming
implementation of the Content Repository for Java™ Technology API
(JCR, specified in JSR 170 and 283).

The Apache Jackrabbit project is in good shape. We have no board-level
issues at this time.

o Releases

  We made the following unstable 2.5.x release from Jackrabbit trunk:

  * Apache Jackrabbit 2.5.2 on September 23th
  We made a release from the Jackrabbit Oak sub project:
  * Apache Jackrabbit Oak 0.5 on September 30th
o Community / Development

  * Chetan Mehrotra and Mete Atamel joined the Jackrabbit team as committers 
    and PMC members.

  * Work on Jackrabbit Oak continues strong: At .adaptTo(Berlin) 2012 there 
    was a presentation on Oak and an Oak related hackathon both of which 
    where well attended. A further Hackathon was held at ApacheCon EU.
  * There was a discussion on the future of Jackrabbit and Jackrabbit Oak
    on the dev@ list. The emerging consensus seems to be that Oak will be
    kept in Jackrabbit and might eventually become Jackrabbit 3.0
    (See http://markmail.org/message/ga4mn2x2xqsvzwg6).
o Infrastructure

  We are still in progress of migrating from Confluence to the new CMS.
