  = Etch =
- (project add text here)
+ Preliminary board report for Etch due to being late:
+ Etch was accepted into Incubator on 2 September 2008.
+ Etch is a cross-platform, language- and transport-independent framework for building 
+ and consuming network services. The Etch toolset includes a network service description

+ language, a compiler, and binding libraries for a variety of programming languages. 
+ The activity in the Etch project was very low in the last months. This led to 
+ a discusion regarding how to continue with the project. Etch has definitely 
+ suffered from the fact that Etch's initial committer team at Cisco was dismantled.
+ This summer the project got its first non-ex-Cisco committers. The 
+ mentioned discussion showed the will of some of the committers to drive 
+ the project more actively. We want to publish release 1.1 during the next 
+ report period. Technically the release package should be ready. A discussion 
+ on whether to include the new C binding in this release or the next one has 
+ been started. 
+ This project definitely needs more drive and more action from the committers to become a

+ viable Apache incubator project. We are willing to do more to make it an active project

+ again. 
+ Top issues currently are:
+ * publish release 1.1
+ * update the web site and documentation
+ * setup a build server on apache's hudson
+ * task planning for release 1.2
