Subject River Status Update
Date Mon, 23 Aug 2010 15:13:49 GMT
As discussed, there's a blurb and the end of this email which I intend to
(somehow) get onto the River main web page as a bit of an update.  Does
anyone have any thoughts?  I've shamelessly enhanced (read: stolen) the
contents of Peter's status email from Tue, 11 May 2010 "Goals & Future

The list of Jira issues at the end is ordered by "last edited" according to
the issue and was limited by my attention span looking through Jira.  Is
there anything on there that shouldn't be?  What big ones did I miss?

@Benson, is this this kind of thing you were talking about?



River is starting to gain some momentum and is seeing increasing activity on
it's developer mailing list. Lots of code and ideas are being thrown around
with some interesting discussions and some great code being produced. Add a
new Apache Mentor into the mix and the project is starting to look like it
could shape up for graduation soon...
