>   During the last three month, 12 jira issues were reported, from which 10

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

>   1. Produce an initial release.

> How has the community developed since the last report?
>
>   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 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.
