>   1. Get companies backing up the project as part of a commercial story, to

>   2. Do recurrent releases - some semi-automation would be helpful - for the
>      3rd party users
>
> Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
> aware of?
>
>   A discussion has been started about the cancellation of the project due to
>   lack of developers on the private odf-toolkit and private incubator list.
>
>   A general issue of the project is that it 'just' a toolkit of an office
>   file format, which in addition is far from leading on the business market,
>   so likely never being used by the mass market - a very niche product.
>
>   Still the toolkit seems to be working well for most common use cases, but
>   is repeatedly updated by developers on changes of the ODF, like Red Hat
>   developers enhancing the ODF validator as part of LibreOffice regression
>   tests (e.g. out-of-the-box running on http://odf-validator.rhcloud.com/)
>   most often quite ahead of one of the international ODF Plugfests -
>   http://odfplugfest.org/2016-paris/programme/.
>
>   Since there are still some game changing features in the pipeline (e.g.
>   collaboration) which are expected to strengthen the acceptance and develop
>   the community but on the other hand the mentorship / infrastructure of the
>   project could be better, a decision needs to be made on the future.
>
> How has the community developed since the last report?
>
>   We clarified on the ApacheCon Europe that a merge with the Open-XChange
>   fork is possible, which extended the original sources still using AL2 and
>   having done several releases with the new AL2 sources.
>
>   So, we are working on the next release including the fixes and planning a
>   follow-up release adding new features.
>
>   Those features should be able to attract companies to back the project.
>
>   In addition, those will be used as reference implementation for the "OASIS
>   Advanced Document Collaboration" subcommittee.
