+2012-April Tashi Incubator Status Report
+Tashi has been incubating since September 2008.
+The Tashi project aims to build a software infrastructure for cloud computing 
+on massive internet-scale datasets (what we call Big Data). The idea is to 
+build a cluster management system that enables the Big Data that are stored in 
+a cluster/data center to be accessed, shared, manipulated, and computed on by 
+remote users in a convenient, efficient, and safe manner.
+Tashi originally encompassed just the tools to manage virtual machines 
+using Xen and QEMU, but has been merged with Zoni, which manages the 
+physical aspects of a cluster like power control, network settings and 
+handing out physical machines.
+The project has received permission to make a release. This release was
+subsequently published via Apache and its mirrors.
+Development activities have included:-
+        * Accounting server has been added to the codebase
+	* Primitive scheduler changes
+		* bug fixes
+		* Add support for user choice of dense packing or not
+		* Guard against starting more than one VM with
+		  persistent disk
+	* Client changes
+		* Add support for the shutdownMany command
+		* Provide better feedback in case of problems
+	* QEMU VMM changes
+		* bug fixes
+		  some timeout values
+	* Cluster manager changes
+		* bug fixes
+The project is still working toward building a larger user and development 
+community. User groups have been identified in Ireland, Slovenia and Korea,
+Malaysia, as well as the United States.
+Items to be resolved before graduation:
+	* Certain parts of the code are tested better than others.
+	  We are confident that the code in the releases and stable
+	  branch will work if running QEMU emulation, Pickle or sqlite
+	  data storage, primitive scheduler. Xen, other data stores and
+	  schedulers have not been tested recently.
+	* Develop community diversity (Committers currently at Telefonica,
+          Google and CMU)
