>
> Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
>
>    1. Overcome current technical difficulties. You might be asking what is
>       happening with Apache iota. The initial architecture that we wanted to
>       upload was not as scalable as we required it to be. Rather than upload
>       an architecture that we wanted to fundamentally change we have been
>       developing a new backend architecture and code based that implements a
>       significantly more scalable solution using Apache, Spark, Spark
>       Streaming and Cassandra. We are still using Python and Django for our
>       APIs and authentication (session and token based). Consequently, you
>       haven’t seen any activity on the Apache iota site and repository. This
>       will be changing soon. Litbit (the contributing company whose business
>       runs on iota) has been working around the clock to remake the backend
>       using additional Apache components that makes the solution far more
>       scalable.
>    2. Set up web site and import code. We will be setting up the Apache iota
>       website to reflect the new architecture and uploading the initial
>       source code as quickly as we can.
>    3. Promote Iota to a wider user base / grow the community. We are planning
>       to promoting iota at an upcoming keynote being given by Scott Noteboom
>       (Litbit's CEO). In addition we will be presenting iota at Apache Con in
>       May 2016. Our goal in promoting iota will be to start building a
>       community that will contribute to moving iota to it’s first release as
>       an Apache incubator project

>    3. Effort towards self governance:
>       - Two releases completed successfully.
>       - Two committer candidates going through voting for committer status

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

>    1. Create and expand a diverse community of contributors and committers
