-  * the gathering of iCLAs from past contributors is slowly going on; here are some stats:
+  * The main issue at the moment continues to be the gathering of iCLAs.  We're making progress:
    * Total number of contributors contacted: 104
+   * Number of contributors with iCLA already filed at ASF: 41
    * Number of contributors that have already sent their iCLA, but still not filed at ASF:
18
-   * Number of contributors with iCLA already filed at ASF: 41
    * Number of contributors who have not yet sent their iCLA: 45
-  The bottleneck around gathering CLAs from past contributors is still in place: we will
begin discussing alternative strategies, such as clean-room re-implementations, for code whose
contributors have not sent in their CLAs yet.

-  * big step forward in the process of replacing LGPL jars, mainly JOTM, the default transaction
manager of OFBiz; the new Transaction Manager integration is still in beta but it seems to
work fine: the tm from Geronimo/Jencks has been integrated into OFBiz; as soon as the feedback
from the tests will be good, JOTM jars will be removed (together with some other, less critical,
LGPLed jars) and the OFBiz codebase will be moved to the Incubator SVN server

transaction manager of OFBiz.  We've integrated the Geronimo/Jencks transaction manager (TM)
into OFBiz, and early testing shows it's working fine.  We continue testing and gathering
feedback, and anticipate that we will be able to remove the JOTM jars soon.  At the same time,
we will be able to remove some some other, less critical, LGPLed jars.  Once that's done,
we plan to move the OFBiz codebase to the Incubator SVN server

-  * a new committer has been added to the project: he is a longtime contributor and is doing
some interesting implementation for the pos (Point of Sales) component, so the core group
of initial committers has (succesfully) voted to grant him commit rights to the pos component
