==============

Apache Airavata is a software framework to construct, execute, 
and manage long running applications and workflows on 
distributed computing resources.

== Releases ==

The PMC has not made a release this reporting period, however it is close in creating release
candidates for the next 0.6 release, roughly anticipated in mid-december. 

== Activity ==

The mailing list, jira and commit activity remains very high. The current activity is on developing
simpler interfaces to integrate with Airavata services and enabling security. The project
is progressing well with a focus on stabilizing API's, documentation, and client integration.
These changes will potentially appeal and attract wider community. If the current momentum
continues, the PMC should be able to march towards its 1.0 production ready release within
the next quarter or two. 

== Community ==

The are new community contributions in enabling security. Community has also expressed in
contributing simpler distributions and integrate with embedded tomcat for quick start tutorials.
GSoC students have also expressed interest to integrate their projects into trunk during holidays.
A handful number of contributors are showing sustained interest towards the project and are
potential PMC members. 

== Outreach ==

Featuring ASF at Supercomputing 2012 in mid november - http://sc12.supercomputing.org/schedule/event_detail.php?evid=bof212.
