As submitted in the report, we did have a reasonable growth in Atlas
in terms of both contributors and committers since the last report.
They span multiple organizations too. We, however, still need to
clarify on the Podling name search before we can be ready for
graduation. Can you please let us know if this assessment seems valid?

>   could remove focus from development of the core repositories.
>
>   As we an important point of Incubator releases is to ensure the project

>   contributions. We believe we have gained that after 3 release votes
>   https://archive.apache.org/dist/incubator/taverna/source/
>   and 7 GSOC/student contributors.
>
>   We have however identified the need for a License Review of the remaining

>
>     3 of the 4 active contributors are from one institution and contribution
