 ### Activity ###
-Development has proceeded at what can charitably be termed a crawl for the past
-year while BVal's team have been expending their volunteer energies elsewhere.
-A large obstacle has just been removed, however, in the form of the Apache
-Commons Weaver component, which has just seen its 1.0 release. This project had
-been one of the aforementioned time/energy sinks and was developed for the
-express purpose of solving one of BVal's long-standing design problems; speaking
-on behalf of the PMC I am hopeful that we can now resume a respectable
-development velocity and finally make our 1.0 and 1.1 (implementing,
-respectively, the same versions of the Java Bean Validation specification)
-releases in the near future.
+BVal saw an increase in traffic to its dev@ and user@ mailing lists this
+quarter. Several of these threads culminated in contributions of code and
+documentation, some of which have already been adopted.
+The board may recall the ongoing saga of releasing the Commons Weaver
+component for use by BVal; we encountered a small setback after Commons Weaver's 1.0 
+release upon discovering a blocking bug in one of *its* dependencies (exposed by
+the BVal trunk code). We thus engaged the third Apache community in the chain 
+(Geronimo) with the result that Weaver 1.1 is currently undergoing a release 
+vote. A la Bullwinkle, "This time for sure!" but we expect to have cleared
+the path to finish BVal 1.0 and 1.1 once this is complete.
 ### Community  ###
-No changes in community. Romain Manni-Bucau was added to the PMC during the
-previous quarter after having been elected a committer the quarter before that.
