  Stonehenge has been incubating since December 2008. Stonehenge is a set of example applications
for Service Oriented Architecture that spans languages and platforms and demonstrates best
practices and interoperability by using currently defined W3C OASIS standard protocols.
  
- Since the last report in February 2010, the Stonehenge project has intensified its efforts
around interop testing between the M2 implementation of the claims-based security model extension
to the Stock Trader implementations. Testing between .NET, Axis2/Java and Metro/Glassfish
implementations have uncovered various bugs and were subsequently corrected in the web services
library and the application code.

  '''M2'''
  
  M2 constituted of expanding the Stocktrader application to use claims-based authentication
using an active and a passive STS for each implementation. We also upgraded the usage of the
WS-* specs from the submitted versions to the ratified one. Extensive documentation work was
done in parallel to describe the new feature set and simplify the installation and configuration
process.
  
- In our last report we were preparing to vote for M2, unfortunately the testing efforts are
still underway and we continue to find issues that we hope to resolve in the near future.
 We are currently investigating which if any products or implementations are holding us up
from releasing and addressing them in an effort to release a stable version to our users.

  = Thrift =
  Thrift has been discussing what is required for it to move forwards - most notably in relation
to releases. While many developers work off their own branches, and therefore do not require
or need formal releases, they do accept the need for releases. As a way to encourage releasing,
a proposal was made to have a release manager. As a result of this suggestion, Bryan Duxbury
was voted in as the Thrift release manager, and is intending to take on regular releases.

  = VCL =
+ VCL has been incubating since December 2008. VCL is a cloud computing  platform for the
management of physical and virtual machines.
+ 
+ '''Community Involvement'''
+ 
+  * As stated in the previous report, 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.
+  * A few people from the community have been contacted by PPMC members  encouraging them
to become more involved in the project.
+  * We continue to see people from new locations asking questions on  the vcl-dev list which
shows that interest in VCL is continuing to grow.
+  * Interest from the community to have support for a more recent  version of VMWare Free
Server drove the decision to swap that feature  (originally slated for VCL 2.3) with cluster
reservation improvements  (originally slated for VCL 2.2).
+ 
+ '''Plans for next Release'''
+ 
+  * We hope to have our next release out by the end of June. This would  be 1/2 the time
it took to get our previous release out. We hope to  continue to shorten the time between
releases as we move forward.
+ 
+ '''Documentation'''
+ 
+  * Migration of official documentation to our second Confluence space  has started. The
next step is to pick an autoexport template, and then  set up a cronjob to copy the autoexported
content to our official  documentation location.
+ 
+ '''Top Issues Before Graduation'''
+ 
+  * Continue to increase contributors from multiple institutions
