h3. Mailing List Summary:

User list discussions are currently focussed primarily on bug reporting and helping new users,
but very little about future feature work.

h5. Developer Mailing List Posting:

[http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/mahout-dev/]
February 2013, 123
January 2013, 213
Dec 2012, 155

as compared to the same months in previous years:
Feb 2012, 578
Jan 2012, 545
Dec 2011, 1079

and

Feb 2011, 352 
Jan 2011, 473
Dec 2010, 267

We've not had this low developer involvement since the first half of 2009.

h5. User Mailing List Posting

[http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/mahout-user/]
User list discussions are primarily in support of very new users, as well as bug reporting
on released versions (0.6 and sometimes even 0.5), highlighting the need for 0.8 to be released.

While the traffic to the user mailing list has gone down slightly from previous years:

Feb 2012, 288
Jan 2012, 367

Feb 2011, 359
Jan 2011, 458

Feb 2010, 497
Jan 2010, 272

This is not a dramatic decrease, as there is still considerable interest in the user community.

h3. Summary: How has the project developed since the last report:

A 1.0 release is not yet on the horizon.

== Milestones ==
1.) Working towards a 0.8 release
2.) Development on new, faster clustering code
