>>  This is already being discussed inside the project community and the main

>> How has the project developed since the last report?

>> NiFi
>> 
>> NiFi is a dataflow system based on the concepts of flow-based programming.
>> 
>> NiFi has been incubating since 2014-11-24.
>> 
>> Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
>> 
>>  1. Produce an initial release.
>>  2. Grow our community beyond the initial set of committers.
>>  3. Establish rhythm for releases, review processes, and document how to
>>     most effectively bring on new committers.

>>  The dev mailing list has picked up 20 new e-mails since the last report
>>  and is now at 62 (commits has grown to 25).
>> 
>>  At the suggestion of the community we've adopted a review-then-commit
>>  strategy which is designed to among other things help with community
>>  development.
>> 
>>  We've received several patches from members outside the initial committer
>>  list including changes which dramatically improved our build process and
>>  provide new extensions.
>> 
>> How has the project developed since the last report?
>> 
>>  All of our current infrastructure needs are setup and things are working
>>  really well.  Our focus now is on working towards our first release which
>>  is 0.0.1 and presently comprised of 85 JIRA issues the vast majority of
>>  which are resolved.  We've conducted a thorough review of all source files
>>  to ensure proper license headers/notices/disclaimers are present.  We've
>>  completed a thorough review and modification of the overall LICENSE and
>>  NOTICE files in preparation for release.  We've conducted the initial
>>  podling name search and submitted the ticket for that analysis to be
>>  verified and confirmed.

>> NPanday
>> 
>> NPanday allows projects using the .NET framework to be built with Apache
>> Maven.
>> 
>> NPanday has been incubating since 2010-08-13.
>> 
>> Shepherd/Mentor notes:
>> 
>>  P. Taylor Goetz (ptgoetz):
>> 
>>    NPanday has missed the last two reports (last report August 2014). One
>>    of two mentors are engaged and encouraging the podling to make a final
>>    release before retiring (last release was on 2011-05-17). However, there
>>    is little PPMC/Committer involvement with only 2 PPMC members showing
>>    involvement on the dev@ list in the past year. Also confirmed that a
>>    report reminder email was received by the dev@ list for each of the last
>>    missed reporting periods as well at the current period.
>> 
>>    It's clear that mentors past and present have attempted to help the
>>    NPanday project grow to a viable size -- at least enough to approve a
>>    release, new Committer/PPMC Member, or even decide to retire -- without
>>    success.
>> 
>>    The main warning signs appear to be:
>> 
>>    * Inability to reach community consensus (barely 2 acive Committer/PPMC
>>      Members, making 3 +1s for any vote very difficult)
>>    * Inability to perform releases
>>    * Inability to grow the community to a viable size
>> 
>>    The issues listed above do not indicate a lack of mentor involvement,
>>    but rather a community in decline.

>> OpenDocument Format (ISO/IEC 26300 == ODF) documents
>> 
>> ODF Toolkit has been incubating since 2011-08-01.

>> Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:

>>  3. Decide if we would like to be a top level project or join an existing
>>     project, or move to the attic.

>>  No new.
>> 
>> How has the community developed since the last report?
