  Shepherd/Mentor notes:
  
  
+ The Taverna podling is hindered by a lack of active mentors (myself
+ included) - the project has appealled to general@ on a couple of
+ occasions
+ 
+ 3 of the 4 active contributors are from one institution and contribution
+ is related to EU project commitments.  The codebase is large and has a
+ long history.  One option is to identify a "core" and move out the rest
+ until such time as they are sustainable.  More active PMC/commiters would be a
+ big boost.
+ 
+ The comment from the last report applies:
+ 
+   Drew Farris (shepherd):
+     Little mentor activity on the mailing lists, could use another active
+     mentor. Healthy activity in the community.
