Including Sergio's notes on Commons RDF

  Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
-   1. Choice: Graduate to Commons or retire
-   2. Adapting build/release process to Commons requirements
-   3.
+   1. Find concrete target goals that could make the project viable as a
+       Commons component.
+   2. Work with key target communities (Apache Jena and Eclipse RDF4J) to
+       ensure Commons RDF meets potential user requirements and expectations
+       towards next versions of the Commons API.
+   3. Re-engage and grow the Commons RDF community base.
  Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
  aware of?
+   More key people (Andy Seaborne this time) has left the podling due 
+   lack of time. Mentor Rob Vesse has also resigned for the
+   same reason.
- How has the community developed since the last report?
+ How has the community developed since the last report?  
+   Community have been compacted with the lost of some key people. We still
+   aim to attract a more broader RDF community, both in and out of ASF.
-   The project is down to 2-3 active developers, and is 
-   discussing the option of either retirement or 
-   graduation to Apache Commons
-   (and Commons PMC are welcoming even small projects).
+   Mailing list stats:
- How has the project developed since the last report?
+   dev@commonsrdf
+   Mar 2016: 45
+   Apr 2016: 75
+   May 2016: 18
-   Second release published. 
+   Jira stats for last 90 days:
+   Created: 7
+   Resolved: 6
-   Rather than the original plan of aiming for each RDF 
-   frameworks to adapt Commons RDF, 
-   the project is now experimenting with its own integration 
-   bindings in the style of Commons VFS.
+ How has the project developed since the last report?
+   Project's development has resumed the work in the last weeks, being able
+   to cast a 0.2.0-incubating release
+   Achieving such milestone has reactivated the discussion about the future
+   of the project. All options have been put on the table, even retiring 
+   the podling; but currently the option that looks to have more options is 
+   to graduate as a Apache Commons component. Discussions will 
+   continue in the next weeks.
