  = Traffic Server =
- (project add text here)
+ Traffic Server is an HTTP proxy server and cache, similar to Squid and Varnish (but better).
Traffic Server has been incubated since July 2009.
+ Recent activities:
+  * 2009-12-28 George Paul joins the project as a new committer.
+  * 2009-12-04 Buildbot system setup, with automatic RAT reports.
+  * 2009-12-02 John Plevyak joins the Traffic Server PPMC.
+  * 2009-11-16 John Plevyak joins the project as a new committer.
+  * 2009-11-16 Diane Smith joins the project as a new committer.
+  * 2009-11-16 Paul Querna joins the Traffic Server PPMC.
+  * 2009-11-11 Paul Querna joins the project as a new committer.
+  * 2009-10-29 Source code migration to Apache Subversion completed.
+ Significant code contributions has been made since the code was initially released, including
64-bit support and ports to most popular Linux distributions. Work is actively done on ports
for Solaris, FreeBSD and MacOSX. A development branch is made for new activity, and we're
keeping our trunk as stable as possible (bug fixes primarily) in preparate for code freeze
and our first Apache release. The plan is to release Apache Traffic Server 2.0 in Q1 2010.
Three new, non-Yahoo committers have been added since incubation, further increasing our diversity.
+ A joint Hackathon with the HTTPD crowd is planned for January 25-26. Some details at
+ The top three things in the way for Traffic Server graduation are:
+  * We have a potential license issue with a dependency on Berkeley DB. This needs to be
+  * The TM on Traffic Server issue. Yahoo! has offered two possible solutions for ASF to
consider, and we'd like for the board to pick one (see details below).
+  * We need to make an official Apache release (planned for Q1 2010).
+ The Trademark issue is that Y! holds several TMs for the name "Traffic Server", most of
which expires soon. Our legal team has proposed two possible solutions, the first being the
easiest for us.
+  1. Yahoo! provides ASF with a letter of assurance stating that we own all right, title
and interest in and to the TRAFFIC SERVER mark and the four active registrations and that
we will not take any action against ASF or any of its licensees during the life of these registrations
(and we'd express our intention of letting them lapse and expire in this letter).
+  1. Yahoo! will assign all right, title and interest in and to the TRAFFIC SERVER mark including
the four active registrations to ASF [though we'd probably want to make this contingent on
getting through the incubator stage].
