feel I have missed or if you would like any additional detail included.

Thanks,

## Description:
   Apache CloudStack (ACS) is an IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) cloud
   orchestration platform.  ACS manages many types of hypervisors, storage
   and networking devices.

## Issues:
 - The PMC currently has a Jira ticket open [1] with Infra to have the
Github
   mirror `apache/cloudstack` moved to `apachecloudstack/cloudstack`.
   This initiative was approved in May 2016 and all my attempts to move
   this activity forward have been unsuccessful.  This is a priority
   issue for our project and we need it addressed ASAP with a clear path
   forward.

## Activity:
 - The 4.9.0 and 4.8.1 versions have been released after a bit of a slow
spring.
 - The release schedule has had quite a bit of work and we have a proposal
for
   the release schedule in the works right now [2].  We hope to have a more
   predictable release schedule going forward, so this is a good first step.
 - The community/users have been requesting a project feature roadmap, so we
   have started work on it [3].

## Health report:
   The project is healthy.  The mailing list has been active other than a
small
   lull while the branches were frozen for stabilizing and releasing
4.9.0.  In
   addition to the normal continued development of the project, we have been
   looking into better support the users of the project and increase
adoption.
   Two items which users / potential users have brought up as deficiencies
is
   the lack of an LTS release and the lack of a project feature roadmap.
We are
   working to address both of these issues to better position the project to
   potential users.

## Mailing list activity:

 - We had a drop in mailing list participation due to
   the master branch being frozen for an extended period as we got the
details
   of the massive 4.9.0 release stabilized and shipped.  The mailing list
   activity picked up to its normal rate as soon as the branches were
unfrozen.
