towards publishing pre-built artifacts in the Apache repository. We need to continue in this
positive direction.
- * Resolve a review process issue that affects our ability to develop new features. Time

code rot and contributors extra work to rebase patches against trunk.

  Most Important Items To Address Toward Graduation
  
- 1. We are discussing the makeup of the future PMC. This will be a slow process as we digest
input from our Mentors. We are separating our discussion about who should be a PMC member
from what makes an ideal PMC member. The first will remain private for now and the second
will be renewed on ooo-dev.

that is an increase of 15 committers and a decrease of 3 committers on the PPMC (following

- The build artifacts in this last source release do not strictly follow guidelines as some

the use of svn in all cases.

- Testing and implementation of old update service for OpenOffice has been accomplished. This
service is for older OpenOffice clients to identify updates and, optionally, install an update
if available. Older versions of OpenOffice (3.1 and less) are problematic when we turned these
on it created a DDOS attack on www.apache.org which we regret.

maturity is not a barrier to graduation so long as the community can demonstrate an understanding
of the Apache release process.  IMO, it is best to get early, alpha releases out on a regular
basis.  You don't have to advertise them as completely ready for prime time.
