JSPWiki added

   * Successful completion of the release
  = JSPWiki =
+ 2009 April JSPWiki Incubator status report
+ JSPWiki has been incubating since September 2007.
+ JSPWiki is a JSP-based wiki program.
+ During the past three months, the JSPWiki community has still continued to increase. 
+ The developer list now has 82 names, a modest increase from 72 the last time, and the 
+ user list is now 167 people strong, ten more than three months ago.
+ The big push now is for our graduation.  The biggest hurdles have been overcome:
+ The packages are now called "" [please see Tomcat bug
+ to see why we couldn't
+ use org.apache.jspwiki]; JSPWiki has switched to the Stripes framework; and we
+ have switched to use the JCR backend (e.g. Apache Jackrabbit).
+ As a result of a vote, the support for webdav has been dropped.
+ The fairly old jsonrpc has been replaced by jabsorb.
+ However, the trunk is in a fairly immature state.  For example, it is not deployable
+ at all, which means that nobody can yet use the trunk for its intended purpose.  
+ Our main concern is to stabilize the code to some state where it would be 
+ actually usable before making a release.
+ The biggest slowdown is simply the fact that JSPWiki is (still) a completely volunteer-
+ developed project, with nobody actually receiving any money for its development.  While
+ this is great in the sense that development is relatively easy to join, and communities
+ are not overrun by corporate requirements, it also means that the committer's priorities

+ often conflict with the object of speedy graduation.
+ We are planning to have an "alpha" grade release as our first official Apache release,
+ after which we should be fairly ready for graduation.
