>  Infrastructure bootstrapping takes a long time and requires a series of

>  web-site without explicitly asking for it. Documentation for apache.org

>  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.
