The "November2012" page has been changed by lresende:

  --------------------
  PhotArk
  
- (project add text here)
+ Apache PhotArk will be a complete open source photo gallery application
+ including a content repository for the images, a display piece, an access
+ control layer, and upload capabilities.
  
- Signed-off-by:
+ PhotArk was accepted for Incubation on August 19, 2008.
+ 
+ PhotArk has a small community of contributors, mostly students, that need a
+ lot of attention in order to keep them active. The recent move in the 
+ project direction to become a hybrid HTML5/Cordova mobile application that 
+ aggregates images from different photo sources has contributed to bring old 
+ members of the community and the is also two students participating in 
+ GSoC that have been doing a great job and became committers.
+ 
+ The community has discussed retirement, and few PMC members want to still contribute 
+ to the project. Having said that, the reality is that PhotArk is a small community, 
+ where the contributions are 100% done by volunteers in their own free time, with some
+ dependency on GSoC to attract higher level of activity as the students can devote their
+ full time on the project. 
+ 
+ Right now the community is looking into preparing a release based on the features that
+ were implemented during the past few months.
+ 
+ Issues before graduation :
+ 
+   PhotArk started as a project with no initial code-base, and we have
+   grown the community to the minimal independent committer size required
+   for graduation. We need to make these contributors constantly active
+   in order to think about graduation again, or recruit new contributors.
+   If the project can sustain the same level of activity for the next three
+   months, I believe we could think about graduation again.
