Subject Re: Incubator PMC/Board report for September 2011 (
Date Thu, 08 Sep 2011 05:38:13 GMT
Hi all,

I drafted a report here:
Please help me review it, any comment will be welcome.


The ODF Toolkit is a set of Java modules that allow programmatic creation,
scanning and manipulation of OpenDocument Format (ISO/IEC 26300 == ODF)
documents. Unlike other approaches which rely on runtime manipulation of
heavy-weight editors via an automation interface, the ODF Toolkit is
lightweight and ideal for server use.

* ODF Toolkit entered incubation on Aug 1st, 2011.

* Most important issues to address.
  1) Moving the community from the ODF Toolkit Union to Apache and learning
the Apache Way
  2) Growing the community, increasing diversity of committers
  3) Grants for the transfer of existing code, documentation etc to Apache
  4) Migration of existing things to Apache infrastructure, including code
repository, website, bugzilla and wiki. Now the code repository has been
uploaded just waiting for the admin response; the new bug trace system is in
test and 70% website and wiki migration work has been done.
  5) Successful podling release.

* Any issues that the Incubator PMC or ASF Board might wish/need to be aware
  None at this time.

* How has the community developed since the last report
  The mailing lists are ready,  where we discuss migration things. At the
same time, we invited the existing users to this new community and try to
attract more new people join us.

* How has the project developed since the last report.
  None at this time. The migration is processing.
