Include a link to your project’s LFX Insights page. We will be looking for signs of consistent or increasing contribution activity. Please feel free to add commentary to add color to the numbers and graphs we will see on Insights.

No LFX insights set up for some reason. LF Edge IT team is helping to add eKuiper

How many maintainers do you have, and which organizations are they from? (Feel free to link to an existing MAINTAINERS file if appropriate.)

4, from EMQ

For eKuiper, we are mono repo and do not have sub-groups. Mainainers means the people who have access rights to perform administrative functions on the eKuiper repo.

Contributors: 28

Committers: 8

What do you know about adoption, and how has this changed since your last review / since you joined the current Stage? If you can list companies that are end users of your project, please do so. (Feel free to link to an existing ADOPTERS file if appropriate.)

We have conducted some commercial POC and deployments. We also learn about several open source adoptions exclusively or integrated with EdgeX Foundry. ( Some open source adopters use silently and hard to count). We also have partnered with several open source projects.

Commercial adopters:

  • Smart Car Edge Computing

  • IIoT Big data center

  • Smart Factory

  • New Energy Storage Data Computing

  • Oilfield production, storage and transportation data acquisition

  • Unified IoT Access System for Smart Water

Commercial POCs:

  • IIoT

  • Internet

  • Telecom

  • Logistic

  • Financial

  • Automobile

OpenSource Project Collaboration

  • EdgeX Foundry(LF Edge)

  • Beatyl (LF Edge)

  • EdgeGallery (LF Edge)

  • KubeEdge (CNCF)

  • OpenYurt (CNCF)

How has the project performed against its goals since the last review? (We won't penalize you if your goals changed for good reasons.)

This is our first review

What are the current goals of the project? For example, are you working on major new features? Or are you concentrating on adoption or documentation?

We are working mainly on major new features and also try to promote adoptions.

  1. Graduate to Stage 2

  2. Deliver on the 2022 Roadmap, about one release per quarter with new features.

    1. More expressive rule by enhance SQL, functions and extensions.

    2. Connect to more ecosystems

    3. More deployment destination: android, HA etc.

  3. Grow the number and diversity of contributors.

  4. Collaborate with more LF Edge projects and other open source projects

How can LF Edge help you achieve your upcoming goals?

  • More exposure to companies globally.

  • Help to improve diversity of contributors.

  • Chances of outreach activities globally.

Do you think that your project meets the criteria for the next Stage?

  • Development of a growth plan (to include both roadmap of projected feature sets as well as overall community growth/project maturity), to be done in conjunction with their project mentor(s) at the TAC.

  • Document that it is being used in POCs.

  • Demonstrate a substantial ongoing flow of commits and merged contributions.

  • Demonstrate that the current level of community participation is sufficient to meet the goals outlined in the growth plan.

  • Demonstrate evidence of, or a plan for, interoperability, compatibility or extension to other LF Edge Projects. Examples may include demonstrating modularity (ability to swap in components between projects).

  • Onboard all project repositories with LFX Security

  • Since these metrics can vary significantly depending on the type, scope and size of a project, the TAC has final judgement over the level of activity that is adequate to meet these criteria.

  • Receive a two-thirds vote of all TAC representatives that do not abstain the vote and a majority vote of the Governing Board to move to Growth Stage.

We think we are closed to meet the criterias

  1. Partially met, we have a roadmap of projected feature sets. Need to plan for community growth/project maturity.

  2. We have POCs but not documented yet

  3. Done

  4. No growth plan yet

  5. Done, have collaborations with EdgeX Foundry, Beatyl and Edge Gallery. We could continue to explore possibilities to collaborate with other projects

  6. Undergoing
