  PLC4X
  
+ PLC4X is a set of libraries for communicating with industrial programmable logic controllers
(PLCs) using a variety of protocols but with a shared API.

+ Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
+ 
+   1. 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.
+   2. 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.
+   3. Make our first release
  
  Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
  aware of?
  
+ Not at the moment.

+ There have been several conference talks on PLC4X:
- How would you assess the podling's maturity?

+ A blog post in a major corporate tech-blog has been published with the
+ content of the JavaSPEKTRUM article on Apache Edgent and Apache PLC4X:
+ https://blog.codecentric.de/2018/06/edge-computing-industrial-iot-apache-edgent-apache-plc4x/
+ 
+ As a direct result on a talk in Berlin about mentoring new committers,
+ we have started creating “low-hanging-fruit” tagged issues and have
+ started promoting them.  As a result we have 2 potential contributors
+ interested in tackling these. Hopefully this will result in continued
+ activity from their side.
+ 
+ We have reached out to a developer offering Modbus, EthernetIP and
+ OPC-UA drivers on his Github page to get him to join our efforts.
+ 
+ The dev-list subscriptions has gone up by 7 (now 29) from the last
+ report.
+ 
+ We now have a Twitter account: https://twitter.com/ApachePlc4x as
+ another channel of communicating interesting PLC4X facts.  After
+ tweeting a lot about our project, the number of followers to that has
+ drastically increased to 41
+ 
+ How has the project developed since the last report?
+ 
+ We have setup a VPN for the CI server and other committers to be able
+ to communicate with real PLCs, however this feature has not proven to
+ improve the involvement of other committers so far.
+ 
+ We have recently found a set of git repos with Apache licensed code
+ for accessing Modbus, Ethernet/IP and UPC-UA devices. We have reached
+ out to the original developer to maybe get him on board with our team.
+ 
+ How would you assess the podling's maturity?
+ 
+ We have a mix of new participants and experienced Apache people
+ involved.  So far, the new participants have shown great willingness
+ and success in adopting the Apache Way.  However, we still need to
+ continue: the on-boarding increasing the diversity of the team Also,
+ will we need to decide and establish all the processes involved in
+ releasing software at Apache
+ 
+ Please feel free to add your own commentary.
