Since you have been reading the dev list I am sure you are already aware, but as one of the
mentors I also consider this project ready for graduation.  While they perform their work
a little differently than in other projects I'm involved in, it seems to work for them.  The
community seems quiet healthy and I suspect that once they have more solid releases based
upon the current trunk the community is going to be quite active. 

The one concern I do have is that there are some PPMC members who joined the project when
it started in the incubator who have never been heard from.  Is there any "normal" way of
handling that on graduation?  I would think at least asking them to confirm they would like
to be on the PMC after graduation would be appropriate.
