Apache SkyWalking Project Incubation Status

This page tracks the project status, incubator-wise. For more general project status, look on the project website.

Description

Skywalking is an APM (application performance monitor), especially for microservice, Cloud Native and container-based architecture systems. Also known as a distributed tracing system. It provides an automatic way to instrument applications: no need to change any of the source code of the target application; and an collector with an very high efficiency streaming module.

Incubation

These action items have to be checked for during the whole incubation process.

These items are not to be signed as done during incubation, as they may change during incubation. They are to be looked into and described in the status reports and completed in the request for incubation signoff.

Collaborative Development

  • Have all of the active long-term volunteers been identified and acknowledged as committers on the project?
  • Are there three or more independent committers? (The legal definition of independent is long and boring, but basically it means that there is no binding relationship between the individuals, such as a shared employer, that is capable of overriding their free will as individuals, directly or indirectly.)
  • Are project decisions being made in public by the committers?
  • Are the decision-making guidelines published and agreed to by all of the committers?

Licensing awareness

  • Are all licensing, trademark, credit issues being taken care of and acknowleged by all committers?
