Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "January2014" by RomanShaposhnik

Dear Wiki user,

The "January2014" page has been changed by RomanShaposhnik:

  Shepherd/Mentor notes:
+ (rvs) In general project seem to be on the right track with a healthy amount
+ of community interaction happening over the mailing list and a strong
+ desire to do a release. Two issues have caught my attention though:
+    1. I am not quite sure what motivated a strong drive towards having
+       by-laws this early in the game. In my experience the focus on by-laws
+       can, at times, put a damping factor on community growth. IOW, what
+       I've seen in the past is that communities try to come up with by-laws
+       when the usual process of consensus building starts to fail. Nothing
+       actionable here for the project -- just keep this in mind.
+    2. The JIRA feels a bit empty for the project that has been developing
+       for more than 6 month (grand total of 33 issues). At the same time
+       the number of commits in the Git repo is on par with the development
+       pace. What it tells me is that there's no strong correlation between
+       JIRAs and commits. This raises a red flag of whether all of the changes
+       that are committed get a proper community vetting before they go in.
+       I couldn't find any traces of the review requests either:
+       This in my opinion is a pretty big concern for the project.
