The "August2013" page has been changed by KasperSorensen:

Added MetaModel project report

  Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
-   1. 
-   2. 
-   3. 
+   1. Roadmapping of our first Apache MetaModel release. Since the
+ namespace change is going to break backwards compatibility of the
+ project anyway, a couple of "old but breaking ideas" needs to be
+ accepted or rejected.
+   2. Bring more diverse committers and contributors to the project.
+   3. We will probably be having several third party modules for
+ MetaModel, because of (L)GPL dependencies. We want to figure out a
+ good way to make this understandable for users (through website or
+ similar means).
  Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
  aware of?
+   No

+ How has the community developed since the last report?
+   The pending INFRA work was finished in end-july, and we are starting
+ to take it into use.
+   We've decided to go for a Review-Then-Commit policy. We will allow
+ lazy concensus after 3 days and a minimum of one +1 vote.
+   There are currently no concrete plans for a release. We have some
+ discussions and proposals of features on the mailing list which we
+ want to settle on first.
+   Since incubation we have not made any new appointments for either
+ committer or PMC member.
+ How has the project developed since the last report?
+   The code has been moved from to Apache's Git server
+ ( 5
+ bugfixes from the base release 3.4.4 was applied to our codebase as
+ well.
+   The namespace of the project has been changed to
+ org.apache.metamodel (previously org.eobjects.metamodel). To aid
+ migration, we've also implemented a helping facility for deserializing
+ objects of the old namespace into the new.
+   A performance optimization for the CSV module has been proposed and applied.
+   The project now has a website
+ ( The website is meant mostly
+ as an 'appetizer', and we're planning to put lengthier pieces of
+ information onto our wiki (, and if
+ needed link to those from the website. Some initial content has been
+ put on the wiki as well.
+   The project contains a Microsoft Access module, which depends on the
+ LGPL licensed Jackcess library. We are looking for a replacement
+ dependency or to remove the module from the project.
