Technology behind Whimsy.apache.org
I've developed a number of open source tools that the ASF uses that are hosted at whimsy.apache.org; many have inquired as to how these tools work and how they can contribute.  This talk will cover both of these topics.

Releasing Apache Software
This presentation will explore technical, procedural, legal and cultural aspects of releasing Apache software; the distinction between "releasing" and "distributing"; the relationship between Apache's source releases and binary artifacts; maturing consensus as to what liberties may be taken with "incubating" releases; how our release process is holding up as the software world evolves; and how codifying the release process helps to fortify the Apache brand.

Apache development with GitHub and Travis CI
Much of the recent innovation in development tooling has happened around Git-based cloud services like GitHub and Travis CI. While these services are not part of the official Apache infrastructure, it's still possible to use them to complement the tooling available to Apache projects. Based on experience from Apache Jackrabbit, this presentation shows how to leverage such external services while staying true to Apache principles and policies.

new monitoring system for ASF
For years Nagios has been monitoring our hosts/vms/services. Due to a sponsorship from Circonus infra got the opportunity to use a more modern system.

The talk will show the features of the new system, how infra has adapted the configuration process to the apache way (all changes in repos).

We will walk through the possibilities of the system seen from 3 different angles:
- The volunteer/committer who needs to know why something does not work
- ThK PMC who might want to have statistics or have critical services monitored.
- Infra wants to know when something is not working
new monitoring system for ASF -
Current implementation is phase 1, we have a couple of things in store for the future:
- Resource monitoring (RAM/DISK/net load)
- More user friendly information about our infrastructure.

Live screens will be used to demonstrate the functionality

SVNPubSub - A notification API for Subversion
Apache Subversion is an open source version control system that is widely used.  Version control systems are the heart of software development and getting the most value out of them means integrating them with other systems.  SVNPubSub provides an infrastructure for receiving events from a Subversion repository.  Ben Reser will show you some off the shelf solutions with SVNPubSub, how to write your own and a look into the possible future of SVNPubSub beyond just Subversion.
