Dear Wiki user,

The following page has been changed by JeremyHughes:

   * Get the sandbox off to a running start
   * Discuss ways to attract new committers

+ === Woden ===
+ Woden is a Java class library for reading, validating, manipulating, creating and writing
WSDL documents, initially to support WSDL 2.0 and with the longer term aim of supporting past,
present and future versions of WSDL.
+ Woden entered the Incubator in April 2005. The Woden team have made six releases since then
and have been included in the release of the Apache Axis2 project. Our current set of active
committers consists of four from IBM, one from WSO2 and one from University of Moratuwa. If
there are any concerns on whether we would graduate if a vote was put to the Incubator PMC,
then it is diversity of the committer base. We would appreciate feedback on this point.
+ Recent activity since our last report in August:
+  * Woden M6 was released in October which introduced a StAX parser based implementation
of the Woden API and improved the compliance with the WSDL 2.0 specification.
+  * In November, three of the Woden committers attended the W3C Web Services Description
Working Group "Second Interoperability Event on WSDL 2.0" in Dinard, France. Two others participated
remotely. Some highlights of the event:
+    * Fixed numerous Woden bugs,
+    * Added a number of good test cases,
+    * Conducted a message exchange testing,
+    * Identified a number of ambiguities and potential issudes in 
+    * Generally ate too much :-)
+  * In Novermber, we added one more committer, Graham Turrell, subsequent to his contribution
of significant patches in the area of a URI resolution framework.
+  * Woden M6 jar has been included in the Axis2 1.1 release.
+  * We have a healthy dev list with a large increase in activity recently.
+  * Woden has  made progress lately wrt conformance to the WSDL 2.0 spec, which can be seen
in the WSDL working group's dashboard [1]
+ Our immediate priorities are:
+  * deliver M7 to rollup the significant progress made during the interop event.
+  * continue development of Woden extension mechanism so that specifications that extend
the core WSDL spec can extend Woden to parse and validate their extensions.
