Podling Teaclave Report - October 2021

October 5, 2021 · Mingshen Sun

# Teaclave

Teaclave is a universal secure computing platform, making computation on privacy-sensitive data safe and simple.

Teaclave has been incubating since 2019-08-20.

# Three most important unfinished issues to address before graduating:

  • Improve project structure and documentation
  • Grow the community (attracting more committers, contributors, users)
  • Publish Apache releases (resolving logistics on Apache release)

# Are there any issues that the IPMC or ASF Board need to be aware of?


# How has the community developed since the last report?

Since the last report, we have organized one monthly virtual meetup (we skipped one due to the public holiday). For each meetup, we have minutes write-up published on the Teaclave blog.

Starting from this meetup, we use Google Calendar to show the meetup schedule and location (i.e., the Zoom link).

We also have two new members elected since the last report:

  • 2021-09-20: Yuan Zhuang (Apache ID: TBD), Committer
  • 2021-09-20: Rong Fan (Apache ID: TBD), Commiter
