adding airavata

  --------------------
  Airavata
  
- (project add text here)
+ Airavata is a software toolkit which provides features to compose, manage,
+ execute, and monitor large scale applications and workflows on computational
+ resources ranging from local clusters to national grids and computing clouds.
+ Airavata is incubating since May 2011.
+ 
+ A list of the three most important issues to address in the move towards
+ graduation
+ 
+   1. The documentation is improving but still not par to ease barrier of entry.
+      The code, documentation and JIRA issues have to be efficiently
+      organized and managed to appeal to wider developer community.
+ 
+   2. Develop a strong community with organizational diversity and well
+      aligned with existing ASF projects as outlined here:
+      http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/AiravataProposal#Alignment
+ 
+   3. Create a regular and predictable release process and schedule
+ 
+ Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be aware of?
+ 
+   The community is very active averaging 150 dev list emails and 75 commits per month.
+   Airavata community encourages cross pollination with other apache projects and also 
+   resuses significant number of license compatible open source libraries. This has helped

+   keep the focus, but delayed the releases with impasse on legal requirements. The delay
in
+   making a release had lost some developer momentum. 
+   The community is not yet significantly diverse but lately the interest is growing. The

+   project is committed and very supportive to external users and is putting the effort on
+   increasing diversity. The PMC has discussed few potential outreach venues and have proposed

+   and engaged with 8 GSoC student proposals. 
+ 
+ How has the community developed since the last report?
+ 
+   No new committers or PPMC members elected in the last quarter. Three new users from the
community
+   are very active in the mailing list. Some have started to send patches and have potential
interest. 
+ 
+ How has the project developed since the last report?
+ 
+   - 0.2-incubating release candidate (skipped 0.1-incubating numbering) was significantly
improved 
+    in regards to license and notice complains. The RC is put up for discussion in community
and 
+    general mailing list. 
+   - With the delay in release, the community has branched a 0.2 release and has made significant

+    progress on the trunk. Many features have been added and ready for successive couple
more releases.
+   - The community has actively responded to GSoC proposals and student questions resulting
in few quality
+    proposals.
+   - Community is voting for a wiki to increase focus on documentation and tutorial.

    Two newcomers to the community, Peter Karich, and Charith Madusanka have been 
    contributing patches, issues, and working issues within SIS. Peter has been
    improving the speed of SIS's Quad Tree implementation, and Charith has been
    helping improve our demo.jsp file, our javadocs, and is now working on a GUI
    for SIS.

+ Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be aware of?
+ 
+   The plan proposed here: http://s.apache.org/Q2z seems to be going 
+   well and we are happy with the direction the project is headed.
+ 
+ Community progress since the last report
+ 
+   No new PPMC members and committers added this quarter.
+ 
+ Project progress since last report
+ 
+   Looking at just mailing list activity:
+   
+   sis-dev: http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/incubator-sis-dev/
+     went from 9 email messages in January 2012 to 32, 74 and 39 in Feb-April 2012
+ 
+   We are participating pretty actively in GSoC and hoping to get 1 or 2
+   students who are collaborating with the Apache OODT project as well
+   for a joint effort.
+ 
+   In addition, we've seen some good cross pollination between other (at the time)
+   incubating projects like Jena and Any23, and TLPs like OODT. In Jena and Any23's
+   case, there are active discussions and work going on to implement the W3C GeoSPARQL
+   system using Apache SIS. After Andy Seaborne poked around on the mailing list, Chris
+   Mattmann volunteered to implement it, and a subsequent thread has ensued.
+ 
+   Chris started rolling an RC for Apache SIS 0.2-incubating, but got blocked
+   on some packaging issues that Kevan Miller identified that needs to be fixed. 
+   Shouldn't be too difficult and we hope to have an IPMC VOTE on it within the next
+   week or so.
+ 
+   We have also started to regularly use the project wiki. You can find it here:
+   https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/SIS/Home. Included on the wiki are
+   links to all of our Incubator reports, along with 2 tutorials. The first one is
+   a quick start guide that Ross Laidlaw improved and copied from the SIS README.txt
+   file. The second demonstrates how to get Apache OODT and SIS connected to dump
+   spatial information out of geolocated files in Apache OODT and to search them
+   in SIS. 
+ 
+   SIS is actively being used and piloted by students of Dr. Ellis Horowitz and
+   Chris Mattmann in USC's CSCI 572: Search Engines and Information Retrieval 
+   class: http://www-scf.usc.edu/~csci572.
+ 
+   If we can add some new committers soon (which I expect), roll 0.2-incubating, 
+ 
+ ---- /!\ '''End of edit conflict''' ----
    and then potentially get an 0.3 shortly thereafter, we think SIS will be well 
    on its way to graduating and its own project.
