> ## Description:
>  Apache Zest is a community based effort exploring Composite Oriented
> Programming for domain centric application development.
>
> ## Issues:
> It has come to the PMC's attention that Eclipse Zest is a well-established
> subproject, within EMF/GEF/GMF ecosystem at Eclipse Foundation, and that
> there is some conceptual overlap (both deal with explicit application
> models). They also started way back in time, and the Zest PMC think that
> although we could stick to the name, we think we should express some
> goodwill towards Eclipse and change name. The sooner the better, especially
> since we have no published releases under the Apache Zest namespace.

> The new name "Apache Polygene" has been chosen, after quite a lot of
> discussion back and forth and some dead ends. We have just started the
> "unusual" process of project name change, and we are trying to capture the

> We don't need Board assistance on this issue.

> ## Activity:
> Recruitment of new blood is continuing to be our weak spot. Re-positioning,
> re-branding, better tutorials and lowering the bar to entry are items to be
> worked on, inspired by other Apache projects, although I suspect too few
> small projects check what other smaller ASF projects do right.

> Zest is a small community, and this quarter was very typical, with good
> progress towards the long overdue 3.0 release, which is all about making
> the incompatible changes once and for all, both in namespaces as well as
> leveraging Java 8 features in public APIs and discarding outdated ways for
> that.
>
> Zest is started participating in Oracle's outreach beta testing of Java 9
> in CI build, and we are currently reporting "yellow" but expect to go
> "green" before 3.0 release.
>
> ## Health report:
> Zest is small, but above the threshold for worry. Efforts are being worked
> on to simplify adoption.
> Mailing list activity remains moderate and JIRA issues are being both
> created and worked on.
> All active committers that are willing, are on the PMC already.
