Subject Board report for OFBiz

>>In any event, which 12 projects would like to volunteer to provide a brief

Let's go ahead and get this over with.  Given that OFBiz is new, it's a
good idea in any case.

OFBiz Status Report
===================

The OFBiz project has commenced incubation in a slow-but-steady way, as
can be seen here:

http://incubator.apache.org/projects/ofbiz.html

Most of the infrastructure is set up and waiting to be transitioned, but
the concensus seems to be to take things slowly.  There are a fair
number of people using the infrastructure, and making a mess of it for
very long would create problems for users.

All of the original committers bar Si Chen (who has sent his CLA in, and
is waiting for it to be processed) have got their accounts.

Work is ongoing to eliminate any LGPL code, although it appears there
are some technical obstacles:

(I'm not much of a Java guy, so anyone willing to help out there is
welcome to have at it!)

In terms of collecting CLA's, there is a lot of work to be done, but the
OFBiz guys are chipping away at it:

For those interested in technical developments, Si Chen does a weekly
roundup of interesting changes here:

I'm happy with the progress so far.

Questions?  Comments?

Thanks,
