Great news. I've updated the project status page:
(May take an hour or so to show up)

Once it has updated, can people check through and ensure all the status 
entries are up to date?

How are we doing on code grants?

Before a release could happen, there are a few steps that are needed. Off 
the top of my head, these include:
* Licenses of dependencies need to be checked
* NOTICE files need to be created, including dependency details if needed
* License and Incubator discalaimers need checking/adding
* Rat needs to be setup for the project, with appropriate excludes
* Missing license headers (as identified by Rat) need to be resolved
* The release process needs documenting

These things can be a bit of a faff on the first release, but they make 
life much much easier going forward, so it's worth tackling them soon (and 
they need doing before the first release)
