  Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
  aware of?
  
+ None. The efforts to revive the project seem to be paying off and discussions are gaining
traction.
-   There have been multiple slowdowns and votes toward retiring the project.
-   Though we have a small team and there has been less than ideal community
-   involvement, we have recently increased the number of active members and
-   are directing focused efforts towards increasing community involvement.
  
-   We will be checking the status next month to determine whether efforts
-   contributed by this new group will be sufficient for recovering the
-   project.
- 
- How has the community developed since the last report?
- 
-   There was talk of retiring, but a group of folks have stepped up and
-   expressed interest in helping OpenAZ get off the ground. We are working on
-   getting those interested folks voted as committers and getting the website
-   running. One new committer has actually been voted in (David Ash).

+ Pam Dragosh, David Ash and Ajith Nair are the active committers at this point. The project
intends to reboot the PPMC which may include removing
+ some of the initial commiters who are no longer active. There are, however, several contributors
who could be potentially added as committers in the future.
-   We have merged in a port of the administrative portion of AT&T's
-   contributed code, which was the last remaining piece of that code base.
-   More work needs to be done on this front, but it's a major part of the
-   code base and this is a good start toward making it happen.
  
+ How has the project developed since the last report?
-   We have also merged a fix for configuration and policy files, which
-   updated class names and removed duplicate xml declarations from policy
-   files.
  
- Date of last release:
+ 1. Ongoing collective effort to improve project documentation, marketing material for better
visbility and adoption.
+ 2. A pending contribution towards PEP implementation is being reviewed and we plan to merge
in these changes soon.
+ 3. We are looking into design feedback/comments from Nextlabs - a XACML service provider.
We hope to incorporate many of these in the coming weeks.
