Thanks for the actionable item Jukka, here's my take on the S4 report:

It sounds like the project has successfully migrated its infrastructure
to Apache and is progressing well on the technical front.  However, I'm
concerned by the emphasis on technical details (eg, the feature list of
the trunk-become-0.5 version) and the lack of details on "Grow the
community"; it is the latter, not the former, which is the purpose of
the incubator and a blocker to graduation.

The community appears to consist of 2-3 active contributors:

I'd like to hear from the PPMC how they plan to expand their dev
community.

P.S. The metrics aren't really clear.  What is "55 on dev" --- 55 unique
posters?  55 posts?  Did they change by more than X% since last quarter?
