+   *   Building the community: The PPMC and committer group has a large percentage of codecentric
employees, we have been recruiting people from other companies, but will have to continue
these efforts for establishing a healthy Apache community.
+   *   Onboarding of new committers: With PLC4X several people on the team are not very familiar
with the Apache Way. We have started and will continue our efforts on this onboarding.
+   *   Podling name search: We have invested a lot of time on the name search prior to starting
to work on the project, but we still need the official OK that we’re allowed to keep the
Name of Apache PLC4X.
+  *    Make our first release

+   *   In order to get access to some of the specifications the ASF will eventually have
to become Members of some external foundations: OPC, EtherCat, Modbus … these memberships
usually have a free level, that allows us to use the specifications but doesn’t result in
any regular costs. We will have to discuss these details with the ASF and the other foundations.
+   *   One of the external foundations (Profinet) doesn’t have a free membership. In general,
the CEO of the European branch of the Profinet Foundation has signaled that it should be possible
for the ASF to become a member and have an outside company pay the membership fees, but we
have to discuss the details (With them as well as the ASF).

+   *   We have been accepted into the Apache Incubator just a week before Christmas, we are
still in the process of setting up
+   *   Prior to joining the Apache Incubator however, we have managed to recruit people from
other Apache projects and are working on getting other people familiar with the protocols
and the industry involved. After the Christmas break we are planning on contacting a big group
of people that have claimed to be wanting to be involved (A list of about 20 Companies, but
we can’t tell how many will be using and how many would also be willing to contribute)
+   *   We have started the onboarding of new committers and will be continuing to do this
(extended emails with a lot of explanations on why we are doing things the way we are)
+   *   Project has bootstrapped quickly and we have mailing lists, website, JIRA etc. all
set up and running.
+   *   Testing coverage has been improved over the initial code base

- Please feel free to add your own commentary.

the Apache Way.

+      *   increasing the diversity of the team
+   *   Also, will we need to decide and establish all the processes involved in releasing
software at Apache
