  Drill has been incubating since 2012-08-11.
  
- Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
+ Three Issues to Address in Move to Graduation:
  
-   1.
-   2.
-   3.
+   1. Continue to attract new developers and and early users with a variety of
+      skills and viewpoints
+   2. Continue to develop deeper community skills and knowledge by building
+      additional releases
+   3. Demonstrate community robustness by rotating project tasks among
+      multiple project members.
  
+ The community has made significant progress on items 1 and 2.
- Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be

+   none
  
- How has the community developed since the last report?
+ How community has developed since last report:
  
+ Community awareness and participation were strengthened through a meeting of the Bay Area
Apache Drill User Group with over 100 participants locally in San Jose and remotely via Cisco-hosted
Webex. On site speakers included 3 Drill contributors, two from San Jose and one from Seattle

+ Community Interactions
+ 
+ The weekly Drill hangout continues, conducted remotely through Google

+ 
+ The community stays in touch through @ApacheDrill Twitter ID, and by
+ postings on various blogs including Apache Drill User http://drill-user.org/ which has had
several updates and through international presentations at conferences.
+ 
+ Viability of the community is also apparent as participants in the open source Apache Drill
community came together on November 4th meet-up of the Bay Area Apache Drill User Group, with
391 members enrolled. The group looked at how Drill works now and what will be the next steps
in the project. The event marked the recent first official release of the Apache Drill project.
