+Notable changes since previous report (November 2010):
+  Stdcxx continues to be dormant. All but committer have moved on
+  to other projects. The only remaining committer (the VP of the
+  project) is too busy with his day job to make even small changes,
+  or to put out the long-awaited patch release, stdcxx 4.2.2.
+  A number of users and organizations have been using the project
+  and expressed interest in contributing to it. Several submitted
+  patches, others have offered help with the project build and test
+  infrastructure. Unfortunately, since no committer is available to
+  review patches and guide the contributors through the ASF process
+  to enable them to gain commit privileges there seems to be little
+  hope of reviving stdcxx.
+  A possible solution that would allow contributions to resume is
+  to grant commit privileges to the handful of contributors who have
+  already submitted some patches or expressed serious interest in
+  contributing going forward.
+  Another alternative is to move stdcxx to a repository outside of
+  ASF such as SourceForge or similar where interested developers
+  could start committing changes on their own right away, without
+  going through the "training" process. This seems to the preferred
+  solution among at least some of the interested users.
+  Are there any other options?
+Future plans:
+  Unless the issue with contributions can be resolved in the next
+  quarter I suggest to retire the project.
