+2009 January JSPWiki Incubator status report
+JSPWiki has been incubating since September 2007.
+JSPWiki is a JSP-based wiki program.
+During the past three months, the JSPWiki community has still continued to increase. 
+The developer list now has 82 names, a modest increase from 72 the last time, and the 
+user list is now 167 people strong, ten more than three months ago.
+The big push now is for our graduation.  The biggest hurdles have been overcome:
+The packages are now called "org.apache.wiki" [please see Tomcat bug
+https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=46462 to see why we couldn't
+use org.apache.jspwiki]; JSPWiki has switched to the Stripes framework; and we
+have switched to use the JCR backend (e.g. Apache Jackrabbit).
+However, the trunk is in a fairly immature state.  For example, it is not deployable
+at all, which means that nobody can yet use the trunk for its intended purpose.  
+Our main concern is to try and stabilize the code to some state where it would be 
+actually usable before making a release.
+The biggest slowdown is simply the fact that JSPWiki is (still) a completely volunteer-
+developed project, with nobody actually receiving any money for its development.  While
+this is great in the sense that development is relatively easy to join, and communities
+are not overrun by corporate requirements, it also means that the committer's priorities

+often conflict with the object of speedy graduation.
+We are planning to have an "alpha" grade release as our first official Apache release,
+after which we should be fairly ready for graduation.
