of a standard sufficient to warrant hosting by ASF?

  === Description ===
  Lucene Connectors Framework is an incremental crawler framework and set of connectors designed
to pull documents from various kinds of repositories into search engine indexes or other targets.
 The current bevy of connectors includes Documentum (EMC), FileNet (IBM), LiveLink (OpenText),
Patriarch (Memex), Meridio (Autonomy), SharePoint (Microsoft), RSS feeds, and web content.
Lucene Connectors Framework also provides components for individual document security within
a target search engine, so that repository security access conventions can be enforced in
the search results.

  Dave Kale, from Children's Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA), is the first external to JPL contributor
to the project (besides mentors of course). Dave contributed the patch for [[http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OODT-8|OODT-8]],
fixing a minor bug in referencing a jar dependency for Maven. Cameron Goodale, another JPL'er
(but not a committer), input [[http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OODT-14|OODT-14]] for
documentation that he is working on. Much of the other activity continues to be from the mentors
and committers.

  = SIS =
- 
  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.

If there is no movement by the next report, we should consider mothballing this project.

The software is not simply a "canned" Social Network or Facebook-in-a-box type of web application;
it's something different. SocialSite is designed to add social networking features to existing
web applications and web sites. SocialSite is made up of two parts: a social data server that
supports the OpenSocial APIs and extensions and a set of OpenSocial gadgets that provide a
complete user-interface for social networking.
