Fluo contributions from Astralway Codebase Intellectual Property (IP) Clearance Status


Astralway is the name of the project on GitHub ( where Fluo originated. Since Fluo graduated incubation, the Astralway maintainers (who are also Fluo PMC members) have separately maintained two developer tools and three example projects for use with Fluo. They now wish to contribute those projects directly to the Apache Fluo PMC.

The incoming code base is three git repositories (uno, muchos, and examples). Uno contains developer tools for running a single-node Accumulo/Fluo cluster for testing and development. Muchos is the same, but for running a multi-node cluster using Ansible. The examples project contains the three examples, phrasecount, webindex, and stresso, which are useful for testing Fluo, and as documentation for demonstrating example uses.

Project info

  • The Apache Fluo PMC will be responsible for the code.
  • The Astralway admins will coordinate with ASF Infra to transfer the existing GitHub repos to ASF and to configure ASF Gitbox dual-hosting for them, just as Fluo's current repositories are configured.
  • Christopher Tubbs (Apache Fluo PMC member, ASF member, and Astralway project maintainer) will manage the contribution.

Completed tasks are shown by the completion date (YYYY-MM-dd).

Identify the codebase

date item
2018-04-17 If applicable, make sure that any associated name does not already exist and is not already trademarked for an existing software product.

Donated software is identified as:

  • (git commit: 8fbe10a9cd9e12f5eca67ee09cfad62aef141eb5)
  • (git commit: 65be99caa4968fec1219f36b599533b40f4755e5)
  • (git commit: 4bd6a004c8dc37e2996314fd8b0de554562c5d38)

The above repos are currently locked (archived), to prevent changes. The intention is that the full repositories will be transferred to ASF, and renamed with the "fluo-" prefix.
