Subject Re: August board report.
Date Tue, 07 Aug 2007 13:53:11 GMT


The incubator folks a little while ago asked for the reports to have 
three sections:

1) Top three items to resolve for graduation
2) Community aspect stuff
3) Code aspects

All of the stuff below (except maybe the docs stuff) fall into the 3rd 
category.   Since the purpose of the incubator is to foster the 
community and is less about the actual code, the incubator folks really 
want to know how the community is doing as well.    The thing to point 
out there would be:

a) New mentor on board: Welcome Matt!
b) Discussion started about the project status and how it may work better 
and/or graduate into other projects like Geronimo, Harmony, and CXF.
c) Increased activity on user/dev list around the binding components, 
possibly due to the release of CXF driving some interest in the corba 
binding components.
