After initially having to report monthly (for the first 3 months) we  
are now on a quarterly schedule. You can find it here:

But even though we don't have to report formally, I can give you an  
update about what has been happening recently.

First of all, we have a new committer, Angelo, who is still on holiday  
as we speak so when he comes back we can probably expect his first  
commit (given the amount of patches he's contributed my guess is that  
won't take long).

Furthermore, work has been done on a GWT based web UI for ACE. For  
people interested in trying it out, the description on the site at

  should be enough to get you started. After an initial attempt to  
embed Felix in Felix for each client session, a model was chosen where  
client services are registered with a "service.sid", a service session  
ID. A listener in web.xml makes sure we get notified whenever a  
session expires so client session services can be cleaned up. UI wise  
it's still fairly basic, you can add bundles that were already in the  
OBR, a file upload still needs to be added. However, the current  
system does allow you to try everything out and deploy bundles to  
targets (the system comes preconfigured with a couple of examples from  

Still tons of stuff to do, but at least we have something working now,  
besides the very first setup that is working for a while longer now  
and is described here:

I'm sure I've missed some details, but this should give everybody a  
feel of what we've been up to. :)
