+ Good report.  Two questions/comments:

than the page reflects.

+ I am concerned about the level of engagement of the community.  The vast majority of mail

+ Is there anything that could be released, even in alpha/beta form?  Code completeness or
maturity is not a barrier to graduation so long as the community can demonstrate an understanding

basis.  You don't have to advertise them as completely ready for prime time.
