   !!! Description
  -The Directory Project is a wonderful project that does things and goes places.
  +The Directory Project is an attempt to centralize all naming and directory 
  +needs in one place at the ASF. This incubator project is language independent
  +and current subprojects:
  +* Eve: a pure Java LDAP directory server
  +* LDAP: common client and server code for LDAP
  +* Janus: Authentication, Authorization and Accounting Framework
  +* Naming: set of core functionality common to all JNDI providers 
  +* Snickers: Codecs for ASN.1

  -1). Is the STATUS file up to date? No we need to work on this as well
  -    as our site documentation.
  -    Here's the link to the status file:
  +1). Is the STATUS file up to date? Yes
   2). Any legal, cross-project or personal issues that still need to be
  -    addressed? None.
  +    addressed? Yes the dependence on the Snacc4J runtime is extremely limiting
  +    and we're presently working on replacing it with the snickers code.  
  +    Perhaps the key aspect to graduating the incubator rests in resolving this
  +    major issue.
   3). What has been done for incubation since the last report?
  -    * Code transferred from LDAPd project CVS repositiory at source forge to
  -      the Apache subversion repository.
  -    * Packages changed and license information updated for Apache 1.1
  -      License
  -    * IANA number for the LDAPd Group transfered to Apache.  The ASF wide
  -      IANA number now and forever is 18060 and can be looked up in the IANA
  -      enterprise number listing here:
  -    * Naming commons moved from the jakarta CVS repository to directory
  -      subversion repository.
  -    * Added Brett Porter and Vince Tence to the team.
  -    * Taking on some security written by Vince from his AAA endeavors.
  +    * Status file is upto day 
  +    * Vince Tence on board and Janus subproject setup
  +    * Website has been built and is accessible here:
  +    * SVN repo cleaned up significantly
  +    * New Eve frontend assembled and up for the first time
  +    * Snickers codecs comming along
   4). Plans and expectations for the next period?
  -    * Add Vince Tence to the group along with security code
  -    * Complete at a bare minimum a simple site about us and our goals
  -    * Bring status file upto date
  -    * Complete documentation on existing Eve code base to make it
  -      easier to attract and inform new developers coming on board.
  -    * Complete clean up and reorg of SVN repo for Eve code base.
  +    * Add more site documentation to fill in gaps as they appear with progress
  +    * Remove dependency on Snacc4J runtime making Snickers complete
  +    * Make it easy for developer entry
  +    * Reasses graduating the incubator
   5). Any recommendations for how incubation could run more smoothly for you?
