the functionality and robustness of the module. After that we would commit that as new version.

  = Empire-db =
- (project add text here)
+ Empire-db is a relational data persistence component that aims to overcome the difficulties,
pitfalls and restrictions inherent in traditional Object Relational Management (ORM) approaches.
Empire-db is on the Apache Incubator since July 2008.
+ 
+ === issues to address in the move towards graduation ===
+ Empire-db is mature and seems to be used in many productive environments. The release process
has been fully implemented according to Apache conventions. User feedback is positive apart
from some complaints about the documentation.
+ 
+ Yet our community is still small and it is questionable whether we can significantly grow
it while remaining in the incubator. So basically we think we are ready for graduation if
the Incubator PMC will allow us.
+ 
+ === community development since the last report ===
+ During the last three months several new users have had questions or suggestions for improvement.
The requests have shown that Empire-db is being used in various different environments (OSGi,
Spring) and even together with other programming languages than Java (Scala).
+ 
+ One user donated a new example project that demonstrates the use of Empire-db together with
Spring that we will publish with our new release.
+ 
+ === project development since the last report ===
+ We have just finished working on Release 2.0.6 and are currently seeking approval from the
Incubator PMC to publish the release. The release contains various new features, improvements
and bugfixes. The most important new feature is a reverse engineering component that generates
data model mapping files from existing databases either from command line or by a Maven plugin.

  SocialSite is an open source Social Networking Service based on Apache Shindig (incubating).
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.
