- (project add text here)
+ Apache SIS is a toolkit that spatial information system  builders or users can use to build
applications       containing location context. This project will look to store reference
implementations of  spatial algorithms, utilities, services, etc. as well as serve as a  sandbox
to explore new ideas. Further, the goal is to have Apache SIS  grow into a thriving Apache
top-level community, where a host of SIS/GIS  related software (OGC datastores, REST-ful interfaces,
data standards,  etc.) can grow from and thrive under the Apache umbrella.
+ === A   list of the three most important issues to address in the move towards   graduation
+  1. Port Local Lucene into SIS   code and clean up license headers into ASF license headers
+  1. At   least one SIS incubating release, hopefully in six months
+  1. Inclusion of point-radius, bounding box and polygon functionality into the first few
+ === Any   issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be  aware  of?
+ No, not at   this time.
+ === How   has the community developed since the last report? ===
+ There was a lot of positive interest from the Incubator community during  the SIS proposal
and voting process. We recently stood up our  mailing lists and have begun to report JIRA
issues, so we hope those are positive first steps to building an  Apache-based community.
 Chris Mattmann discussed SIS over in the Lucene community as something to watch in terms
of a common place for spatial code for Solr and Lucene to reside.
+ === How   has the project developed since the last report? ===
+ SIS was [[|voted
  into the Incubator by the IPMC]] on February 21, 2010.
+ All mailing lists have been set up, all SVN accounts  are up, and karma has been granted
to all SIS committers. Sean McCleese and Patrick O'Leary volunteered to be list moderators,
and Chris Mattmann has reported two JIRA issues, [[|SIS-1]]
(import Local Lucene code), and [[|SIS-2]], stand
up the SIS website. We will also begin work soon on porting the license headers for Local
Lucene into SIS ASL 2.0 headers, and to port the package names for code (JIRA issues to be
filed on this).
