The comment on the change is:
Add Pivot status report

  = Lucene.Net =
  = Olio =
  = Pivot =
+ Pivot has been in incubation since January 2009.
+ Pivot is an open-source platform for building rich internet applications in Java.
+ * Noel Grandin was added as a new committer on 3/29.
+ * The codebase was forked into the "WTKX" project at Google Code:
We didn't get a clear answer from the developer as to why he chose to fork rather than collaborate.
From what we can gather, he seems to want to do Pivot "his own way". 
+ * There is one potential issue with the fork. The only change we have seen to the headers
is that the developer added his own name to the copyright. To us, this doesn't seem like a
"prominent notice of change" as defined by the Apache license. A message was sent to legal-discuss
on 3/30/2009 asking for guidance, but we have not yet received a response. 
+ * The Pivot PPMC is currently voting on a proposed 1.1 release. Work has begun on a 1.1.1
maintenance release and 1.2 feature release.
+ Top 3 issues for graduation:
+ * TBD
