http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/February2010?action=diff&rev1=8&rev2=9

--------------------------------------------------

  There was a lot of positive interest from the Incubator community during the OODT proposal
and voting process. We hope that once we get our mailing lists up and start to commit code,
that we'll build up an Apache-based community.
  
  === How has the project developed since the last report? ===
- OODT was [[http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/incubator-general/201001.mbox/<5c902b9e1001211758i5e92d55dvd5ce5c3e1cc554c2@mail.gmail.com>|voted
into the Incubator by the IPMC]] on January 22, 2010.

into the Incubator by the IPMC]] on January 22, 2010.
  
  Progress has been steady, with our mentor Justin Erenkrantz creating issues for setting
up the mailing list ([[http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-2463|INFRA-2463]]), JIRA
([[http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-2464|INFRA-2464]]) and Confluence ([[http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-2465|INFRA-2465]]).
 Chris submitted a software grant for OODT on January 25, 2010 and the grant was acknowledged
in r21258 in /foundation/officers/grants.txt on January 26, 2010.

+ '''Community Involvement'''
  
- Signed off by mentor:
+  * The Apache VCL community continues to grow. We're seeing more and more people start to
contribute to our online documentation and file JIRA issues - some with patches attached.
+  * We're seeing more feature requests come in which means more people are using VCL.
+  * More people have joined the vcl-dev list and are asking questions as they install VCL
at new locations.
+  * Aaron Peeler, Andy Kurth, and Josh Thompson have become part of the PPMC.
+ 
+ '''First Official Release'''
+ 
+  * Our first official release (Apache VCL 2.1) was made available on Dec. 4th, 2009.
+  * We set a small number of features to work on for the next few releases in hopes of getting
releases out more quickly.
+ 
+ '''3rd Party Dependencies'''
+ 
+  . Procedures for handling 3rd party dependencies have been worked out. All dependencies
that have incompatible licenses are now specified as "System Requirements" as stated under
"System Requirements" at http://www.apache.org/legal/3party.html
+ 
+ '''Documentation'''
+ 
+  * A large amount of documentation has been added to the project's Confluence site
+  * People from multiple organizations have contributed to improving the documentation, both
by editing the pages themselves and by pointing out areas for improvement on the lists
+  * A new confluence space has been created to be used for managing the official documentation
for the project. Documentation that should be included with releases will be migrated from
the existing confluence space to the new one, and the autoexport of the space will be cron
copied to our official documentation location. Work on this migration has not started.
+ 
+ '''Unresolved Issues'''
+ 
+  . All unresolved issues reported in our 2009-11 report have been resolved.
+ 
+ '''Top Issues Before Graduation'''
+ 
+  * Continue to increase contributors from multiple institutions
