  Most of the past few weeks has been filled with infrastructure stuff. 
  We've successfully migrated web-site, CVS module, bug-tracking and the mailing 
  list to - many thanks to the infrastructure team for making 
  the transition that smooth. 
  All Apache committers have been Gump committers with the old setup and this 
  still remains true. We want to get as many people involved as possible when 
  it gets to maintaining the project metadata. This is the reason that we've been
  sticking to CVS for now since we can reach most Apache committers that way. 
  Gump will probably be one of the last projects that make the transition to 
  Work on the project bylaws has started and we expect to have them ready for the
  next board meeting. Gump is unique when it comes to committer status so we'll 
  have to put some thoughts into the definition of that role. 
  Gump has been quite successful in pointing out problems in some builds recently 
  and we are happy that most of them have been resolved between projects easily. 
  Our biggest problem right now is building Avalon, but this may be due to the 
  fact that Gump is using a different build system than Avalon more than anything
  else. Once Gump supports Maven as a build option, things may become easier for
  We continue improving the Python rewrite of Gump and have come quite a long 
  way already. Since nobody of us is anywhere near a Python guru, we may be doing
  things far more complicated than necessary. Any help is welcome. 8-) 
  The short-to-mid-term future steps for Gump are :
  <li>get dedicated ASF hardware to run Gump on - 
  <i>currently working on getting it running on Moof but we are really 
  looking forward to the new gump-dedicated machine</i>. 
  <li>expand Gump's reach beyond building Java projects. 
  <li>improve the way Gump works by trying to find an computationally 
  feasible way to nagging the offender and not the offended, improve the 
  usability/effectiveness of gump reports, find ways to increase adoption by 
  making social pressure of nagging more effective and ease the effort 
  required for users to update their project descriptors. 
  <li>start thinking on how to provide feedback for legal dependencies checkings
