Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "May2012" by JukkaZitting
Date Thu, 03 May 2012 12:23:40 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Incubator Wiki" for change notification.

The "May2012" page has been changed by JukkaZitting:

Comment:
Unify report formatting. No content changes apart from a few typo fixes.

  Overview:
- Cloudstack just entered the incubator a couple of weeks ago.   Since then, the mailing list
has been setup  and discussions have started to migrate from the existing list to the ASF-hosted
list, with several 'new names' participating including one of those 'new names' submitting
a patch. Currently, the code repository and bulk of existing infrastructure is still hosted
by Citrix, but the community is looking forward to getting that moved to Apache as soon as
possible.

At present the mailing lists exist, but wiki, project website, source repository, bug tracker,
etc still need to be brought up and migrated. In many ways we are blocked on further progress
by lack of account creation for initial committers.

as an issue in the proposal, and remains one, though we are encouraged by a seeming uptick
(we've been in incubation for less than a week, so trends are indeed difficult to identify
at this point) in interest on the mailing lists from previously uninvolved individuals.
