December 2009 Board Report

Aries will deliver a set of pluggable Java components enabling an enterprise OSGi application programming model.

Aries entered incubation on September 22, 2009.

There are currently no issues requiring IPMC or Board attention .

The svn area has been organized with a single trunk for now, though we still need to settle the discussion about components lifecycle and the svn layout.

The following sub-components are actively being developed:

  • Application

  • Blueprint

  • JMX

There has been a lot of activity on the mailing list this month indicating a vibrant community is being built.

Top 2 or 3 things to resolve before graduation:

  • Build community

  • Create a release

  • Address project scope concerns raised during acceptance vote
