Sounds fair enough. I'm still actively mentoring the project but could  
it use some more mentors.

The project is in the middle of cutting their first release, and we  
all know that the first time is the hardest.

The biggest issue regarding the release was the decision to *not*  
release the 3.0 code base that had been the focus of previous efforts.

If everyone stays focused, I believe that the project can graduate  
within a few months after release.
