PDFBox report

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  
  = PDFBox =
  
+ Apache PDFBox is an open source Java library for working with PDF documents. PDFBox entered
incubation on February 7th, 2008.
+ 
+ We have finally migrated all sources to Apache svn and set up the project website at http://incubator.apache.org/pdfbox/.
We also set up a CI build using Hudson. Traffic is picking up on the user and developer mailing
lists, new issues are being reported through Jira, and there is initial discussion about an
incubating 0.8.0 release.
+ 
+ Software Grants have been received from Ben Litchfield and Daniel Wilson who are the primary
authors of the PDFBox, FontBox and JempBox software. There have been a lot of small contributions
(under the BSD license) by a number of other people to the project and it was asked (see http://markmail.org/message/zy6oweihmenqt6o4)
on the legal-discuss list whether the primary authors have "sufficient rights"  to grant a
license for all of the code, or if we have to contact all the other contributors for separate
grants. Having received no response to the question on legal-discuss we assumed that software
grants from the primary authors was sufficient.
+ 
+ We're discussing about what to do with the FontBox and JempBox codebases that are included
as subprojects of PDFBox. We might decide to merge them with similar efforts in other Apache
projects, most notably XML Graphics.
+ 
+ Issues before graduation:
+ 
+  * Increase community size and activity
+  * License review
+  * Export control notifications
+  * First Apache release
+ 
  = Sling =
  
  Sling is a framework to develop content centric web applications based on the idea of modularizing
the rendering of HTTP resources.
