Change Comment:
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Updated the report with info on the Swiss OSS awards and the recent release plans.

Edited by Jukka Zitting:
---------------------------------------------------------------------
The Apache Jackrabbit™ content repository is a fully conforming implementation of the Content
Repository for Java™ Technology API (JCR, specified in JSR 170 and 283).

The Apache Jackrabbit project is in good shape. We have no board-level issues at this time.

h2. Releases

We made one Jackrabbit 2.2.x patch release in this quarter:

* Apache Jackrabbit 2.2.8 on August 23rd

h2. Legal / Branding

No open issues.

h2. Community / Development

Apache Jackrabbit was nominated for the 2011 [Swiss Open Source Award|http://www.ossaward.ch/]
in the community category. We attended the award ceremony on Tuesday, Sep 13th, and gave a
short presentation about Jackrabbit, but the award went to another project.

We are planning to cut the Jackrabbit 2.3.0 release from trunk in near future. To increase
the rate at which latest work in the trunk gets released (it is already nine months since
Jackrabbit 2.2), we are considering an odd/even versioning strategy where all odd releases
like 2.3.x are cut directly from trunk, and stable maintenance branches like 2.4.x get created
every now and then for production-ready releases.

Meanwhile we will be cutting new patch releases from earlier maintenance branches, including
the old 1.6 branch whose end of life status will be announced along with the last patch release.
Also, active work on the new microkernel prototype targeting Jackrabbit 3.0 continues.

h2. Infrastructure

The planned migration from Confluence to the new CMS soon is still pending for action on our
part.
