- (project add text here)
+ Since February 2012:
+  - 0.9.2 release
+  - Hoang Minh Tien added as Committer
+  - Matt Franklin added as Mentor
+  - Improved release documentation
+  - GSoC student project
+ Next steps:
+  - implement new release schedule (aligned with Apache Rave)
+  - 0.10.0 release using new release process
+  - start graduation process after release
+  - ASF Widgets demo
+ Issues before graduation:
+  - none
+ Details:
+ Wookie is a Java server application that allows you to upload and deploy
+ widgets for your applications. Wookie is based on the W3C Widgets
+ specification, but widgets can also be included that use extended APIs
+ such as Google Wave Gadgets and OpenSocial.
+ Wookie has been incubating since 17th July 2009.
+ In our last report we identified our target for this period was to identify ways to
+ improve the diversity of the Wookie community.
+ Since our last report we added a new committer (Tien) and we are now diverse
+ enough to graduate (6 committers from 4 organisations), although we are still a small
+ community.
+ We feel that graduation of the project will also help attract new contributors, and
+ we will seek approval to graduate during the next quarter, after the 0.10 release
+ which is imminent.
+ As well as graduation, we have agreed that having more frequent scheduled
+ releases, coordinated with Apache Rave may also help with community development.
+ Matt Franklin has joined Wookie as a mentor and is active in helping with this process.
+ We've also created a lot of detailed documentation on the release process
+ and are encouraging more committers take a turn at being release manager
+ to both test the documentation and to spread the experience of doing this more
+ widely.
+ Our first release under the new schedule will be 15th May.
+ Another approach we're (still) looking at is how we can use Wookie to deploy widgets
+ that relate to ASF processes and activities as a way of raising awareness and interest;
+ we've done some experiments with Widgets using the Jira API as a starting point for a
+ demonstrator and we may want to explore this further.
+ We also have a GSoC student project with Wookie this year.
