  ODF Toolkit has been incubating since 2011-08-01.
  
- Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
+ Most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
  
-   1.
-   2.
-   3.
+   1. Get companies backing up the project as part of a commercial story, to
+      get a long-term momentum
+   2. Do recurrent releases - some semi-automation would be helpful - for the
+      3rd party users
  
  Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
  aware of?
  
+   A discussion has been started about the cancellation of the project due to
+   lack of developers on the private odf-toolkit and private incubator list. 
  
+   A general issue of the project is that it 'just' a toolkit of an office
+   file format, which in addition is far from leading on the business market,
+   so likely never being used by the mass market - a very niche product.
  
- How has the community developed since the last report?
+   Still the toolkit seems to be working well for most common use cases, but
+   is repeatedly updated by developers on changes of the ODF, like Red Hat
+   developers enhancing the ODF validator as part of LibreOffice regression
+   tests (e.g. out-of-the-box running on http://odf-validator.rhcloud.com/)
+   most often quite ahead of one of the international ODF Plugfests -
+   http://odfplugfest.org/2016-paris/programme/. 
  
+   Since there are still some game changing features in the pipeline (e.g.
+   collaboration) which are expected to strengthen the acceptance and develop
+   the community but on the other hand the mentorship / infrastructure of the
+   project could be better, a decision needs to be made on the future.

+  
+   We clarified on the ApacheCon Europe that a merge with the Open-XChange
+   fork is possible, which extended the original sources still using AL2 and
+   having done several releases with the new AL2 sources.
  
+   So, we are working on the next release including the fixes and planning a
+   follow-up release adding new features.
  
+   Those features should be able to attract companies to back the project.
  
- Date of last release:
+   In addition, those will be used as reference implementation for the "OASIS
+   Advanced Document Collaboration" subcommittee.
