[REPORT] Accumulo - October 2019

Michael Wall-2
## Description:

The Apache Accumulo sorted, distributed key/value store is a robust,
scalable, high performance data storage system that features
cell-based access control and customizable server-side processing. It
is based on Google's BigTable design and is built on top of Apache
Hadoop, Zookeeper, and Thrift.

## Issues:

There was a discussion about a trademark issue at
http://www.accumulodata.com [1]. The owner of the site is a PMC member
and has offered to repoint to https://accumulo.apache.org.

## Membership Data:

Apache Accumulo was founded 2012-03-20 (8 years ago)
There are currently 36 committers and 36 PMC members in this project.
The Committer-to-PMC ratio is 1:1.

Community changes, past quarter:
- Adam Lerman was added to the PMC on 2019-08-06
- Holly Keebler was added to the PMC on 2019-08-08
- Adam Lerman was added as committer on 2019-08-08
- Holly Keebler was added as committer on 2019-08-09

## Project Activity:

- We have finally released Apache Accumulo 2.0.0 on 2019-08-02 [2].
- We also released the Apache Accumulo2 Maven Plugin on 2019-08-07 [3].
- The monthly "Hack Day" continues in Columbia MD. There was nothing
of note posted from the meetings in Jul, Sep or Aug.

## Community Health:

Activity in the community remains pretty constant. The exception is that
the user list felt like it had a little more activity over the past quarter
which is supported by the metrics showing a 195% increase in emails (59
compared to 20). Many of those emails were people new to the community
asking questions or getting support. We have also been attempting to
encourage participation among newcomers by inviting them to
subscribe and introduce themselves on the dev list.
