The "August2016" page has been changed by GourSaha:

Apache Slider report

  Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
-   1.
-   2.
-   3.
+   1. Apache Slider community/PPMC have voted to move portions of Slider into
+      Apache Hadoop YARN as modules. It is possible that the remaining pieces
+      will be moved at a later point in time or become obsolete or evolve to
+      work closely with YARN. Slider PPMC will decide what makes the most sense
+      as we progress through this exciting time.
+   2. Getting more external users
+   3. Growth of a diverse set of developers/committers/PMC members is also
+      crucial towards the final state of Slider
  Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
  aware of?
+ No.

+ The Apache Hadoop YARN community/PMC and Apache Slider community/PPMC has
+ decided to move portions of Slider into YARN, to make fast and significant
+ progress on: YARN-4692 - [Umbrella] Simplified and first-class support for
+ services in YARN. As a result, portions like Slider Core, Application
+ Master, Client and Tests will roll into Apache Hadoop YARN as module(s).
+ This effort is being captured in: YARN-5079 : Native YARN framework layer
+ for services. At this point, a branch has been created in the Hadoop
+ codebase, and Slider has been selectively migrated. As a result of this,
+ we are already seeing interest in the Hadoop committers/PMC, who have
+ started to contribute and submit patches to Slider.
+ In order to support existing users of Slider, and to provide seamless
+ migration, there will be sufficient overlap between the time when a stable
+ state of long running services support is available in some future version
+ of YARN and the time till an independent Slider release is available. The
+ community/PPMC will also determine the future state of Slider as we
+ navigate through these changes.
- Date of last release:
+ The discussions on the Slider and YARN community DLs can be viewed here -
- When were the last committers or PMC members elected?
+ How has the project developed since the last report?
+ We released version 0.91.0-incubating in June, 2016 with significant work
+ done on token management, unique component support, SLIDER-906 (Support
+ for Docker based application packaging with first class YARN support) and
+ several bug fixes. Work continues on support for complex services
+ (assemblies) and agent-less applications in Slider. The efforts on the
+ Core will continue in the new services branch created in YARN.
+ Date of last release:
+   2016-06-28 slider-0.91.0-incubating
+ When were the last committers or PMC members elected?
