>>Taverna
>>
>>Taverna is a domain-independent suite of tools used to design and execute
>>data-driven workflows.
>>
>>Taverna has been incubating since 2014-10-20.
>>
>>Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
>>
>>  1. IP clearance to be signed by Univ of Manchester
>>  2. Move source code, wiki, issues to apache.org. Restructure git repos.
>>  3. Invite contributors who volunteered at October workshop
>>
>>Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
>>aware of?
>>
>>  Infrastructure bootstrapping takes a long time and requires a series of
>>  requests. E.g. Taverna incubator has been approved, but does not get a
>>  web-site without explicitly asking for it. Documentation for apache.org
>>  infrastructure assumes you are already a long-term committer.
>>
>>
>>How has the community developed since the last report?
>>
>>  Transition of mailing list succcessful (? - can we get some numbers?).
>>
>>  Most of the proposed initial committers have sorted CLAs
>>  https://wiki.apache.org/incubator/TavernaProposal#Initial_Committers
>>  and received apache.org account - see
>>  https://people.apache.org/committers-by-project.html#taverna
>>
>>  Many of the remaining initial committers have not been active in the
>>  recent years. We're following up these (and others) through private
>>  conversations. There's been some confusion with regards to the term
>>  "committer" - some were scared and thought it meant they had to make
>>  a committment to work on the source code!
>>
>>  Not much further development - worried that dev@taverna are scared away
>>  by the long-dragged bootstrapping which dominates the list.
>>
>>How has the project developed since the last report?
>>
>>  Source code is being restructured at
>>https://github.com/taverna-incubator
>>  before being staged to import into git.apache.org
>>
>>  Normal development continues at https://github.com/taverna/ - due to
>>  prepare the final 2.5.1 non-Apache release.
>>
>>  Stian Soiland-Reyes was at ApacheCon in Budapest, fruitful discussions
>>  with mentor Andy Seaborne and Gavin McDonald from INFRA with regards to
>>  the transitioning of Taverna's existing source code repository, wiki and
>>  issue tracker (luckily git->git, confluence->confluence and jira->jira).
>>
>>Date of last release:
>>
>>  No release since incubation.
>>
>>When were the last committers or PMC members elected?
>>
>>  No new committers or PMC members elected since incubation.

>>Shepherd/Mentor notes:
>>
>>  As noted the email list just been migrated and code repo setup, but
>>  already show good signs of activity on the email list.  Code
