I've just thrown this together. I'll add this to the incubator report 
soon to use as a starting point unless anyone thinks that I have not 
been upbeat enough again!

    Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:

    1. Community growth/diversification

    Since the last report, three months ago, Bloodhound has completed
    its PODLINGNAMESEARCH which aside from issues of
    diversity was the final item to consider prior to graduation. The
    Bloodhound community has been discussing the
    issueof graduation following positive comments following the
    Decemeber2012 report and the community vote has now

    The project now has demos running of Apache Bloodhound, one of which
    shows the current state of the trunk branch
    andproviding a demonstration of the new search functionality that
    has been developed. Unfortunately, we do not yet
    haveability to make use of the repository browser, which was
    something that was brought up in the previous report.

    We added two new committers to the project in January. We have also
    seen more interest in the project from a number
    of channels including irc and the dev mailing list which weare, as
    ever, hoping to convert into growth of the
    developer community and continue to improve upon diversity.

The questions that we are meant to answer (currently listed in our entry 
on the wiki page) are:

    Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to
    be aware of?
    How has the community developed since the last report?
    How has the project developed since the last report?
