-### Apache Bval Quarterly Report December 2011
-Bean Validation was accepted into Incubator on 1 March 2010.
-The Bean Validation project is an implementation of the Java EE Bean
-Validation JSR303 specification.
-There are no other important issues open before a possible graduation.
-The project has agreed to seek status as a TLP, and has agreed by an internal
-vote on its readiness to graduate \[1\].  The primary task outstanding is the
-completion of a charter.
-### Any issues that the Incubator PMC or ASF Board might wish/need to be aware of
- * none
-### How has the community developed since the last report
- * Mailing list and JIRA activity are extremely quiet.  We attribute this
-to the nature of the podling, being but an implementation of a specification,
-and the level of achievement of conformity to that specification.
-### How has the project developed since the last report
- * we have upgraded to and continue to pass the latest available version of the JSR303 TCK.
- * we continue to track the progress of the JSR303 spec for the future.

+### Apache BVal Quarterly Report March 2012 *[DRAFT]*
+Apache BVal implements the Java EE Bean Validation 1.0 (JSR-303) specification
+and related extensions, and became a top-level project of the foundation on
+February 15, 2012.
+#### Releases
+BVal version 0.3-incubating was released April 28, 2011.  The PMC is actively
+discussing making its first non-incubating release in the *immediate* (!) future.
+We are highly motivated because as members of the Java EE ecosystem @ Apache
+we like to cooperate and coordinate with the release schedules of related projects
+(e.g. OpenJPA, Geronimo) whenever possible.
+#### Activity
+Since graduating to TLP status, activity has focused on post-graduation tasks,
+primarily the migration of the BVal website from Confluence to the Apache CMS.
+We continue to follow the progress of the Bean Validation specification; its 1.1.0
+version is being developed under Red Hat's (open) leadership as JSR-349.  Apache
+BVal will implement Bean Validation v1.1.0 as soon as is practical.
+Finally, we have established a #bval channel on Freenode IRC.  We continue to
+make decisions on-list, but we hope that our availability on IRC will help build
+a sense of team camaraderie, and allow us to resolve simple questions in a more
+synchronous manner.
+#### Project Team
+The composition of the team has not changed since graduation, at which time
+all committers became members of the inaugural PMC.  The PMC is quite diverse
+and we are satisfied that no entity has undue influence in our decision-making
+#### Branding
+Most of the team (and everyone else who has been asked) harbor some level of
+dislike for BVal's existing logo, the "check mark made of coffee beans."  One of
+our ongoing tasks is the direction/selection/creation of a new project logo.
+#### Legal
+No concerns at present.
+#### Infrastructure
+We have some outstanding features we'd like to implement on our project
+website (specifically a news or blog feed), and may seek advice and/or support
+from infrastructure to accomplish this.
