                         <p>To monitor incubator project, the Apache Software Foundation
board holds monthly meetings.
 For these meetings a board report must be delivered to the Incubator PMC.</p>

+<p>Celix is an OSGi like implementation in C with a distinct focus on interoperability
between Java and C.</p>
+<p>Celix has been incubating since 2010-11-02.</p>
+<p>Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:</p>
+<ol>
+<li>Grow the community</li>
+<li>Find more committers</li>
+<li>...</li>
+</ol>
+<p>Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be aware of?
+None.</p>
+<p>How has the community developed since the last report?
+Activity on the mailing list is still a bit slow, but there is still progress. But more importantly,
the Native-OSGi effort has taken a few big steps. The most important one is the publication
of an RFP at the OSGi Alliance [ 1 ]. The purpose of this RFP is to standardise OSGi for native
(C and C++) languages. After the RFP is finalised work will be started on a RFC, this will
be done in conjunction with writing a reference implementation. For this purpose Apache Celix
will be used. This also means that C++ will be introduced in the Celix project. Most likely
large parts of C++ code will be donated by 2 participants of the Native-OSGi project. This
gives us a great opportunity to add extra committers and increase the diversity of Celix.</p>
+<p>How has the project developed since the last report?
+As mentioned above, to be able to write a reference implementation for Native-OSGi the scope
of Celix will be extended to also include C++. Details of this extension still need to be
worked out. But for continuity the current (C) code base will (for now) remain the same. So
any work related to Native-OSGi will (for now) be done independently from the current implementation.
+Also work is underway to make a second release. Whereas the first release focused primarily
on the releasing itself, this second release will focus on the actual implementation. Important
points are:</p>
+<ul>
+<li>API consistency</li>
+<li>Win32 support</li>
+<li>APR usage</li>
+</ul>
+<p>More details can be found in [ 2 ]</p>
+<p>A (Mini) Hackathon for Apache Celix was organised at June the 30th. There where
4 people present on the hackathon (2 committers) and focus for the hackathon was the remote
services implementation. The hackathon was received well and we like to do this more often
to encourage community growth of Apache Celix.</p>
+<p>Apache Celix is now also involved the Google Summer of Code for 2013. Erik Jansman
is doing a project on the Event Admin for Apache Celix and Pepijn Noltes is mentoring him.
The idea is to discuss the result on the mailing list. This is a new experience for Apache
Celix and we hope that helps the community and also provide technical progress.</p>
