> - There are no issues that requires the board's attention this quarter.

> ## Activity:
> - The project is active with seven (7) releases this reporting period.

> - We released one new component: Apache Commons Text 1.0,
>   a library focused on algorithms working on strings.

> - Commons RDF has graduated from the Apache Incubator and is now a
>   component of the Apache Commons project.

> ## Health report:
> - Most components in Commons are mature, but are still actively maintained
>   (7 releases). The dev list is active. JIRA is active. Speed of responses
>   to users is reasonable in most cases. We have 2 new PMC member, and
>   Commons is still open to any Apache Committer.
> - Since no development has happened for a long while, the Apache Commons
>   Modeler component has been moved to dormant. No further development is
>   expected.
> - We are still experiencing some growing pains toward Commons Math 4. There
>   is a backlog of issues in JIRA (not unlike other components) but no clear
>   concensus in the community. Do-ocracy is likely to prevail. There is a
>   proposal on how to move the code base forward and having Math depend on
>   Commons Numbers and Commons RNG, and then dropping the corresonding
>   Math code. All of which can be seen on the developer's mailing list.
