>>>
>>>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

>>>
>>>  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?
>>>
