The "August2012" page has been changed by JukkaZitting:

Plenty of releases and related discussion

  o Releases
+   The following incubating releases were made since our last report:
+   - July 18th, 2012: Apache Any23 0.7.0-incubating
+   - July 23rd, 2012: Apache SIS 0.2-incubating
+   - July 26th, 2012: Apache Flex 4.8.0-incubating
+   - July 26th, 2012: Apache Openmeetings 2.0-incubating
+   - July 27th, 2012: Apache Syncope 1.0.0-RC3-incubating
+   - July 30th, 2012: Apache Amber 0.22-incubating
+   - August 2nd, 2012: Apache Airavata 0.4-incubating
+   Cutting releases in the Incubator remains a difficult task. We discussed
+   starting a "release task force" to help fix this, and there have already
+   been some good ideas on how to do that. Unfortunately there are few concrete
+   improvements yet, and meanwhile podlings continue having trouble attracting
+   enough IPMC attention on their release candidates.
+   The vote on an upcoming Bloodhound release brought up the topic of how
+   relaxed we can be in interpreting the Apache release policy for polling
+   releases. The current thinking is that since these are official Apache
+   releases so notable breaches of policy that materially affect our rights
+   or those of our downstream users to distribute or use the released code
+   are allowed only if explicitly cleared by legal. Smaller issues like
+   minor mistakes in source headers or partially incomplete licensing metadata
+   can be allowed in an incubating release as long there's a commitment to
+   fix such issues in time for the next release.
+   We also did some cleanup in /dist/incubator of old releases by projects
+   that have already graduated and have more recent releases.
