Subject: [REPORT] Commons - December 2016
To: "Apache Board" <>

## Description:
The Apache Commons project focuses on all aspects of reusable Java

The Apache Commons components are widely used in many projects, both within
Apache and without. Any ASF committer can commit to Apache Commons.

The last report was on September 13 2016.

## Issues:
 - There are no issues that requires the boards attention this quarter.

## Activity:
 - The project is active with 6 releases this reporting period.
 - We released one new component: Apache Commons RNG 1.0. Commons RNG
 provides implementations of pseudo-random numbers generators that are
 either faster or of higher quality (and sometimes both) than
 - Commons RDF is making its way out of the incubator into Commons
 toward a 1.0 release.

## Health report:
 - Most components in Commons are mature, but are still actively
 maintained (6 releases). The dev list is active. JIRA is active. Speed of
 responses to users is reasonable in most cases. We have 1 new PMC member,
 and Commons is still open to any Apache Committer.
 - Commons Math still feels stuck and now depends on Commons RNG
 in our repository. We are discussing how to evolve this component, which
 has caused some friction within our community, all of which can be seen on
 the developer's mailing list. There are several proposals for fostering new
 communities in place of the dwindling Commons Math one, but that those are
 in limbo because no consensus has been reached yet.

Unedited reporter data follows.
